He's a Motherfucker, Don't You Know

Bush Urges High Ethical Standards (an article from January 2001):

"Bush warned that he expected his White House staff to meet the highest ethical standards, avoiding not only violations of law, but even the appearance of impropriety.

"'We must remember the high standards that come with high office,'" he said. 'This begins careful adherence with the rules. I expect every member of this administration to stay well within the boundaries [that] define legal and ethical conduct.

"'No one in the White House should be afraid to confront the people they work for over ethical concerns, and no one should hesitate to confront me as well.'

"Bush told his staff that he sees civility as a central part of the required behavior of White House staff. 'There is no excuse for arrogance and never a reason for disrespect toward others,' he said. 'I expect each of you … to be an example of humility and decency and fairness.'"

Of course, what has happened in the past two years is that he has broken international law, has not at all avoided the appearance of impropriety (Halliburton), has been completely arrogant in most everything he has done, and through his actions has disrespected people in this country and abroad.

He is a very bad man. But you all know that already.

Its time for that "charm of 5:30" beer.
