I was arrested in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1976 for driving under the influence of alcohol. I pled guilty, paid a fine, and had my driver's license suspended for 30 days.
My Texas driving record has been "lost" and is not available.
MILITARY: I joined the Texas Air National Guard and went AWOL.
I refused to take a drug test or answer any questions about my drug use.
By joining the Texas Air National Guard, I was able to avoid combat duty in Vietnam.
COLLEGE: I graduated from Yale University with a low C average.
I was a cheerleader.
PAST WORK EXPERIENCE: I ran for U.S. Congress and lost.
I began my career in the oil business in Midland, Texas, in 1975. I bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas. The company went bankrupt shortly after I sold all my stock.
I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using taxpayer money.
With the help of my father and our right-wing friends in the oil industry (including Enron CEO Ken Lay), I was elected governor of Texas.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS GOVERNOR OF TEXAS: I changed Texas pollution laws to favor power and oil companies, making Texas the most polluted state in the Union. During my tenure, Houston replaced Los Angeles as the most smog-ridden city in America.
I cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas treasury to the tune of billions in borrowed money.
I set the record for the most executions by any governor in American history.
With the help of my brother, the governor of Florida, and my father's appointments to the Supreme Court, I became President after losing by over 500,000 votes.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PRESIDENT: I am the first President in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record.
I invaded and occupied two countries at a continuing cost of over one billion dollars per week.
I spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted the U.S. Treasury.
I shattered the record for the largest annual deficit in U.S. history.
I set an economic record for most private bankruptcies filed in any 2-month period.
I set the all-time record for most foreclosures in a 12-month period.
I set the all-time record for the biggest drop in the history of the U.S. stock market.
In my first year in office, over 2 million Americans lost their jobs and that trend continues every month.
I'm proud that the members of my cabinet are the richest of any administration in U.S. history. My "poorest millionaire," Condoleeza Rice, has a Chevron oil tanker named after her.
I set the record for most campaign fundraising trips by a U.S. President.
I am the all-time U.S. and world record-holder for receiving the most corporate campaign donations.
My largest lifetime campaign contributor, and one of my best friends, Kenneth Lay, presided over the largest corporate bankruptcy fraud in U.S. history, Enron.
My political party used Enron private jets and corporate attorneys to assure my success with the U.S. Supreme Court during my election decision.
I have protected my friends at Enron and Halliburton against investigation or prosecution. More time and money was spent investigating the Monica Lewinsky affair than has been spent investigating one of the biggest corporate rip-offs in history.
I presided over the biggest energy crisis in U.S. history and refused to intervene when corruption involving the oil industry was revealed.
I presided over the highest gasoline prices in U.S. history.
I changed the U.S. policy to allow convicted criminals to be awarded government contracts.
I appointed more convicted criminals to administration than any President in U.S. history.

I've broken more international treaties than any President in U.S. history.
I am the first President in U.S. history to have the United Nations remove the U.S. from the Human Rights Commission.

I have set the all-time record for most people worldwide to simultaneously protest me in public venues (15 million people), shattering the record for protest against any person in the history of mankind.
I am the first President in U.S. history to order an unprovoked, preemptive attack and the military occupation of a sovereign nation. I did so against the will of the United Nations, the majority of U.S. Citizens, and the world community.
I have cut health care benefits for war veterans and support a cut in duty benefits for active duty troops and their families in wartime.
I am the first President in history to have a majority of Europeans (71%) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and security.
I am supporting development of a nuclear "Tactical Bunker Buster," a WMD.
I have so far failed to fulfill my pledge to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice while your fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, wives and husbands are losing their lives every day.

Given those facts, it isn't anyone.

But I don't think you were really after presenting true facts.

Oh, Howie.

What can I say?

Have you ever wondered what REALLY happened to Vince Foster, you Clinton felating pustule bag.

Using a long list of things that you personally offensive or distasteful is not a very effective way of arguing.

You just don't like Bush. That is all.

Another whole list of things just as long and nasty could be written for that empty suit that you Donks ran in November.

Don't ever get me started on Clinton.

Hey rjenner,

So is Clinton's.

Speaking of conscience, why is it that you ALL you brilliant college dumbasses just LOVE communism? Hopeless romantics? Just can't stop thinking about the good old days of the Red Commie Poliburo controlling everything, and everyone?

If you all love that shit so much, why not move to a socialist country? Plenty of people in Euroland speak real good Engrisch.

I withdraw my comments made on Larry's site about your blog becoming boring. This was an interesting post.

Isn't the world a strange place. Despite your selective litany of naughty things, GWB is going to go down in history as one of the America's great presidents. Quite right too!

Please! We were promised progressivism. This is just spouting the party line.

For such a "bright" guy, you sure don't seem to have any research just regurgitate whatever you read from Atrios or Kos with no attempt at verification.

Your assertion that, "All records of my tenure as governor of Texas are now in my father's library, sealed and unavailable for public view."
is just a flat-out lie.

According to this website, they have approximately 2100 CUBIC FEET of records from GWB's administrations available for research.

15 Subgroups, 87 series of records.

General Counsel files - 173 cu.ft
Senior Adviser's Office files - 88 cu.ft.
Executive Office files - 22 cu.ft.

etc., etc., etc.
Doesn't sound to me like they are "sealed and unavailable" to me but then I'm not an Ivy Leaguer.

Do you not bother to verify ANYTHING?

They used to accuse Clinton of 'spending like a drunken sailor'. But look at the budget NOW. Bush is spending like a 'drunken driver'.

Howie, do share with us the URL for the polemic cesspool where you dredged up this content. Due to the lack of spelling errors you couldn't have authored it.

As a favor, please at least try to write some of your own thoughts into each post. You may get criticised in the comments; but, you'll never learn to swim in the shallow waters of some leftist nut job's thoughts.

great post...i don't understand why people try to find one small fault in the post. they don't see how most of it is a vindication of Dubya's ineptitude

The repugs don't care about lists.
He can do what he likes and they'll support him.

How dumb is that???

Well, Cecil The Ninja sez...

"Your existence is offensive to anyone of average intelligence."

Please have the decency to type coherently before you debase someone who (it seems) is by far your intellectual superior.

Soyuz said: "great post...i don't understand why people try to find one small fault in the post." Because it is virtually FACTLESS?! Just because these assertions about Bush being "AWOL" from the Natl Guard, etc. have been repeated over and over, does not make them facts.

"they don't see how most of it is a vindication of Dubya's ineptitude"

Nope, sorry, Soyuz, it's an example of the ineptitude and blatant LIES of those who seek to malign the President of the United States, based only upon their flaming hatred of him, and regardless of the truth.

Michael Moore would be so very proud of you, Howie! You've swallowed every lie he's told, hook, line and sinker!

It's really a shame that you can't come up with anything original, Howie.

At 9:27 p.m., June 25, 2005, Blogger hooey vignetted...

Now you speak ill hatred of a great American, M. Moore! Have you actually seen any of M. Moore's award winning films? Probably not. You just buy all the hate that comes from K. Rove and the rest of the Bushies. They call M.Moore unpatriotic. Would that they only knew how patriotic M. Moore actually is! This man lives and breathes for America. A NEW, progressive America, not Bush's racist, fascist, imperialist America of today. If you could have seen and heard him sing Ā«America The BeautifulĀ» on the Tonight Show last year, you would know what a great man he is! The whole audience joined in! It would have brought tears of patriotic pride to your eyes. I feel that in the future, our history books will give M. Moore the credit he is due as a great American patriot who had the courage to stand up to an oppressive government and bring about progressive change for the masses. All of you should see his films; rent them if you have to. You might learn something.

I might learn something from Michael Moore, about what, pre tel? Guns, maybe? That's it, guns. He DID make a movie about it right? Bowling for Columbine. I've seen it, and it is nothing but excrement. Not a single thing in it is true, but you don't want to believe that, so you go on with perpetuating the lie, just like Goebbels, you pig!

Presemt a neocon with the facts and the truth and recieve an ad-hominem personal attack in return.

Opinions are not facts, and stupidity of that level DESERVES an ad-hominem attack.

I rest mycase.

I rest MY case, whereas you never had one.

Typical stain glass red state right winger.

At 12:36 p.m., July 02, 2005, Blogger Cecil The Ninja vignetted...

Typical both-sides-of-the fence rhetoricical bullshit.

My political slant has nothing to do with the FACT that none of these assertions are true, and presenting them as truth makes you look like a very silly and foolish person.

Cecil, cum to my blog, baby.
