George Bush: A Real Fucking Asshole*

The Washington Post reported today that George W. Bush is finally jumping on the environmental bandwagon. This is utter horseshit, and the guy that lives in the White House is not going to get a free pass from McBone just because he pays lip service to possibly the greatest calamity that humankind has ever faced. As I recall, he became president in 2000--when it was pretty well known that we had to start reducing the amount of poison we were pumping into the sky--and promptly refused to sign the Kyoto Protocol.
So, what exactly did he say? Oh, something about setting a long term goal by the end of 2008 to curb greenhouse gas emissions on an international scale. So basically the first thing he lets us know is that he plans on waiting until the very end of his presidency before even bothering to set a goal. In other words: let someone else deal with it, because I won't.
This fucking asshole spends 7 years catering to the energy industry and now we're supposed to swallow this tripe?** He spends 7 years alienating our international neighbors by balking at proposed emissions standards, and now we're supposed to believe he's leading some kind of environmental crusade? Sorry Mr. We-Need-To-Do-More-Research-On-Climate-Change, you have never cared about the environment, and you still don't. We are not fooled.
George Bush, you love fossil fuels. You are warring for them. You can't say things like: "We're the world's leader when it comes to figuring out new ways to power our economy and be good stewards of the environment," and expect to get away with it. Good stewards? The US produces 25% of the worlds carbon emissions!!! Piss off, Bush, and please die while you're at it.
McBone urges all McBoners out there to sign this petition from the Environmental Defense Action Fund if you're serious about stopping global warming. Time to stop talking about opening doors to beginning the process of setting goals. Let's get this done.

Oh boy, I am mad! Coming soon: More on how Bush has screwed the environment!
*McBone endorses the use of foul and defamatory language to describe George W. Bush.
**I like tripe.

A brilliant call to arms against a war criminal, a racist, and a hater of the Earth.

A scene that haunts me to this day is the ONE question about the environment in the televised presidential debates in '04. I thought to myself, John Kerry has it made. All he has to do is list off what Bush has done wrong. Just list the facts. Yet, he didn't.

If John Kerry had read your post, word-for-word, on the televised debate, he would have won the election.

Was there a question about the environment in the debates? I can't remember it at all. I do remember thinking what a golden opportunity Kerry missed out on.
