Okay, So What Are You Gonna Do About It?

Took me a while but I finally figured out what was so familiar about this picture. Turns out it's the exact same facial expression, body language and general aura of petulant aggression that the dipshit in my third grade class threw at me after I confronted him for stealing my Frito Bandito eraser out of my desk. Didn't care that the weight of evidence was overwhelmingly against him. Couldn't have mattered less that I could see one of Senor Bandito's rubbery pistols sticking out of his pocket. And he really didn't give two shits that I loved that eraser more than life itself. All that did matter was that I wanted it, he had it, and there wasn't anything I could do about it.

In case anyone's curious, the reason for Pres. Bush's "Geez, don't you douchebags get it?" demeanor in the photo is that he was attempting to explain how U.S. employers adding only 51,000 jobs in September when the market expected many, many more was actually a good thing for the country. At least I assume that's what he was trying to do. Who's listening any more?

At this point, I don't really get why Bush even bothers trying to come up with "smoke and mirrors" spun answers. He really ought to treat his spin doctors to a well deserved vacation for the rest of his term. That way he can just go about answering questions with the real reasons he does stuff. There are only 3 reasons he does things, its either: Because I fucking felt like it, Because someone who contributed to my campaign wanted to do it, or Because I hate _____ (fill in the blank with: black people, brown people, poor people, jews, muslims, etc).
