I was looking at some sites on the net that talks about George W Bush and his flip flops and, OH MY ALLAH, that man flip flops alot. I cannot believe that the president of the United States can be that pretentious and hypocrite. What do the Americans expect this man to do for them? How can they trust such a person?
Here are some of his flip flops which may prove my point of view and by the way these flip flops have been issued recently by the Center for American Progress.
Social Security Surplus
Bush Pledges Not to Touch Social Security Surplus: “We’re going to keep the promise of Social Security and keep the government from raiding the Social Security surplus.” [Bush, 3/3/01]
Bush Spends Social Security Surplus: The New York Times reported that “the president’s new budget uses Social Security surpluses to pay for other programs every year through 2013, ultimately diverting more than $1.4 trillion in Social Security funds to other purposes.” [The
New York Times, 2/6/02]
Bush Supports a Woman’s Right to Choose: “Bush said he…favors leaving up to a woman and her doctor the abortion question.” [The Nation, 6/15/00, quoting the
Bush Opposes a Woman’s Right to Choose: “I am pro-life.” [Governor Bush, 10/3/00]
Weapons of Mass Destruction
Bush Says We Found the Weapons of Mass Destruction: “We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories…for those who say we haven’t found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they’re wrong, we found them.” [Bush, Interview in
Bush Says We Haven’t Found Weapons of Mass Destruction: “David Kay has found the capacity to produce weapons. And when David Kay goes in and says we haven’t found stockpiles yet, and there’s theories as to where the weapons went. They could have been destroyed during the war. Saddam and his henchmen could have destroyed them as we entered into
Iraq. They could be hidden. They could have been transported to another country, and we’ll find out.” [Bush, "Meet the Press," 2/7/04]
Osama bin Laden
Bush Wants Osama Dead or Alive: “I want justice. And there’s an old poster out West, I recall, that says, ‘Wanted: Dead or Alive.’” [Bush, on Osama Bin Laden, 9/17/01]
Bush Doesn’t Care About Osama: “I don’t know where he is. You know, I just don’t spend that much time on him… I truly am not that concerned about him.” [Bush, Press Conference, 3/13/02]
So, I think the truth speaks for itself. You can make your own search to see that these quotes were said by George W. Bush himself. I used to have a friend who flip flopped alot. He still my colleague at work but our friendship is over. I cannot trust a person who does that. Our tongues translate what is going on in our minds. So, how can I understand a person if his tongue is flip flopping!?
