so many jobs!

So little brain!

I don’t know how he handles it all—first he’s “The Decider,” then he’s “The Decisioner,” and now, he tells us he’s “The Commander Guy”???

President Bush coined a new nickname for himself — ‘’the commander guy” — on Wednesday, as he criticized Congressional Democrats in a speech to the annual gathering of the Associated General Contractors of America, a construction industry trade group.

The man who last year proclaimed “I’m the decider,’’ in response to a question about whether he would fire Donald Rumsfeld as defense secretary, came up with this latest moniker in explaining why he vetoed an Iraq war spending bill that dictated a timeline for troops to withdraw from Iraq.

“The question is, ‘Who ought to make that decision, the Congress or the commanders?,’’ Mr. Bush said. “As you know, my position is clear – I’m the commander guy.”

Still, worse, I think, than the fact that men and women are being sent to their deaths and dismemberments by a mental midget, is that said midget thinks it’s funny. It may not be clear in print, but if you listen to the audio of this speech (sorry, heard it on the news, can’t find a link), you can hear the smile and the smirk.

At this point, I should point out that Commander Guy has issued only two vetoes during his time as President—Tuesday, to reject Iraq occupation timelines, and last year, to prevent federal funding for new stem cell research—and in both cases, Bush has dismissed the hopes and desires of large majorities of the American people.

Bush, the Commander Guy, is saying—and not too subtly, I might add—“Most of you want to invest in this research? Most of you want to bring the troops home? Well, fuck you—I’m king of the world!”
