The Bush-Ford Connection

Crawford, Texas-

Before the corpse of Gerald R. Ford was even cold, George Bush came bounding out of his ranch at Crawford today for his favorite pastime: the Photo-Op.

As he spoke kind words of praise and remembrance, writtten in a fashion so that even a monkey couldn't screw it up, about a man he barely knew, I was suddenly struck by the thought that there is an obvious connection between the two men....

Neither of them were ever "elected" to the office of President of the United States.

I've noticed most of the news channels are referring to Ford as the "first" non-elected president.

not one as used the modifier - "only"

so, yes, i totally agree

And Mrs. Ford looks about as excited as german PM Merkel did to be having Bush touch her.

I had to laugh when bush said Ford was the right man for the country at the time. Did he realize how ironic that sounded? Here our country is, just as fucked up as it was back then and in many the same ways. It's all his fault and we sure as hell could use someone right now to heal us just as we needed someone then.

I love all these comments that Woodward has released showing how Ford felt about this damned war.

Happy New Year......I hope

Let's hope that Bush isn't able to demonstrate Ford's longevity, assailing us with his idiocy for the next 30+ years.

Yes, bravo to Woodward for releasing the Ford comments about the Iraq War! As dumb as he was portrayed by comedians, he was never as dumb as Bush is about foreign policy. I'm not sure any president we have ever had has been that dumb...

Didn't Rummy and Cheney kind of get their starts in the Ford administration? I will have to look that up...

Yes they did, maybe they had souls then?

Nope, never had 'em.

there's one case in which I would wish Bush an extremely long life:
1] impeach him
2] remove him from office
3] send him to prison for the rest of his natural life--with no chance for parole
4] every night before he goes to bed one person, from anywhere in the world, who he has harmed goes into his cell and tortures him in some way or another.

btw, Snave--
you're spot-on---
if I've got it straight, Rummy was Bush's 'Chief Administrator' or some such [for some reason, he was advised against havinga Chief of Staff]. Cheney was Assistant Chief Admin.

Till I found that out [just recently] I'd been pretty kindly disposed toward Ford. Now, I suddenly feel betrayed by the man. What the f*** was he thinking when he appointed those 2?
