Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: George Bush, Tony Blair And Bill Clinton: Aren't They All Just Birds Of A Feather ?

George Bush, Tony Blair And Bill Clinton: Aren't They All Just Birds Of A Feather ?

Someone once said that one "can't be all things to all men."

Sadly, that said someone obviously gave professional politicians a pass on this particular pronouncement; professional politicians of all colours/stripes and of all nationalities.

And This Old Brit believes that Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and George W. Bush just about beat the bloody band when it comes to being better than most at mutual back-scratching -- as well as some serious and unashamed back-stabbing, whenever such need should arise.

The Bush-Blair picture (top left), is just one of many taken over the last few years. The other, of Blair and Clinton, was taken much more recently; to be precise, at Britain's ( just ended), 2006 Labour Party Conference. See below.

Tony Blair has no need for the Tardis or some other fancy time-travel machine to see his future when he has Bill Clinton.

Damn. Does that seem as sickening to you as it does to us?

And there's more.
Former President Clinton - he may keep the title but that word "former" now invariably precedes it - stood before the Labour conference to offer some gentle, brotherly advice on how the party should remain the "agents for change" to keep power.

Then there's this.
He was also there to offer some warm words of praise and admiration for his friend Tony Blair.

So Tony's a big buddy of Bill, eh? Just as he is of Bush, eh?

Even though Bill Clinton and George Bush (son of one of Bill's bestest golf-buddies), pretend to be in permanent, personal and political party opposition?

Phew. Please pass us the puke pail -- pronto.

And can you credit this -- without becoming befuddled by complete confusion?

Just look at the US where, he (Bill Clinton), said, so many of the economic advances made under his watch were being undone by his successor George Bush's Republican administration.

Bill (big-dog) Clinton stands on a stage right alongside his big buddy Tony (B-liar) Blair as he simultaneously slags off Blair's other big buddy, George Bush -- and we're expected to see nothing wrong in it?

So, we're supposed to (ever so silently), swallow such shameful shit?

We're supposed to show no sodding surprise?

We're supposed not to be shocked?

We're supposed to simply shut up?

We're supposed to show yet again that we really are all as stupid as we're supposed to be?

Well, This Old Brit is one who bloody well won't do any of the above.

What a shower of self serving, incestuous shits, these perverse pro-pol-sobs are.

What a bare-faced bunch of brazen, birds-of-a-feather.

What a double talking, trio of tossers.

Awrh, enough already.

Just back to blogging after an absolutely super sunshine break -- but already we're rudely reminded of the sort of serially, served-up shite that convinced us it was time to cop-out of it all for a while in the first place,

Read the rest of the relevant report right here -- and see if it revolts you, even remotely as much as it does us.

Shysters - all of them - down to the very last man. They shit on us all, every day -- and smile at us while they do it.

A pox on all their houses.

Good rant, Richard!

Clinton had an awful lot of Americans fooled for a very long time. I'm ashamed to say I was one of them for a couple of years at least. By '96 I could no longer vote for him, so I cast a "protest" vote for Ralph Nader.

Many Dem. Party politicians are very good at presenting a phony face. About half of the many Dem candidates in the Presidential Primaries in 2004 (including Kerry as we found out) were phony. At least the Republicans are more honest -- what you see is about what you get. Also the Republican's pretended ineptitude is more obvious. (New Orleans and conduct of Iraq War are top examples)

I think the whole thing is orchestrated. The Repugs look so obviously greedy and power hungry and uncaring that anybody else looks good by comparison. So we can pretend we have a two-party system.

hmmm... I can rant, too, Richard.

Too true they're all the same. They're all in it for what they can get out of it. And out of 'us'.

And next, after a double helping of Bushes, what are the chances the world's due for another helping of (a)Clinton?

I heard Clinton address his encomiums to Blair on National Public Radio ... I was more suprised that some of that conference got put on the air here than that Clinton laid it on so thick for ol' Tone.

Well, that's 5 minutes of my life I'll never get back again.

Spot on.
They are all the same. Listen to Reid and realize how outrageous his comments are. Brown looks like he is on some sort of medication and I predict he will be most upset this time next year.
Seems to me that Cameron is being groomed as the next PM.

I think Frank Black summed it up nicely some time ago in one of his acerbic Daily Show commentaries. He said:

"The difference between Republicans and Democrats is that the Democrats suck and the Republicans blow."

Well, I'm sure all of us here know what 'ticks' are, and if my memory serves me right (though my schooldays are now lost in the mists of time, or so it feels), isn't 'poli' Latin for small or little or something similar? ;^)
