Sorry Bush, Gayken Is Winning This One


We’re really at the point where we truly don’t know what to say about Mr. Bush. By now, it’s pretty obvious that Bush isn’t a popular president. The Claymates approve of Clay Gayken more than Americans approve of Bush at this point. When Gayken is beating you, well, that’s just sad. Logically, you’d think a 34% approval rating would make you want to get your shit together. Clearly, logic isn’t taken into consideration within Bush’s brain.

We had our doubts about Bush’s initial comments around Katrina, and videotape released now confirm that Bush was well aware of the potentially devastating effects of Katrina prior to the levees breaking. The video shows Bush being told the day before Katrina hit that the levees were likely to fail. The tape fully contradicts Bush’s earliest comments, “I don’t think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees” made four days after the hurricane struck. New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin had a few thoughts per this most recent discovery:

It surprises me that if there was that kind of awareness, why was the response so slow? I have kind of a sinking feeling right now in my gut. I mean, I was listening to what people were saying and I was believing them that they didn’t know. So therefore it was an issue of a learning curve. From this tape it looks like everybody was fully aware.

We can only wait to see what scare tactic Bush will utilize to get himself out of this one. Maybe the Claymates should sue Bush for lying to us instead of Gayken. Gayken boned a man. Bush continues to bone America.
