Little Boy Man

And for some odd reason George Bush is still talking. And not, you know, hiding somewhere in shame for pissing and shitting all over our country and the world for eight years. I’m actually surprised Bush hasn’t just snuck out to the garage by now, locked himself in the car, put on some Foghat, fired up the engine and taken a slow ride to oblivion. But, no. Like an aggressive foot fungus he keeps popping up when you least expect it. Christ, this asshole will probably live to be 100.

“Former President George W. Bush says as the U.S. debates immigration policy, he hopes “we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the contribution of immigrants.”

Bush on Tuesday opened a conference on the benefits of immigration hosted by the George W. Bush Institute and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

One of the Bush Institute’s focuses is economic growth. The conference is part of an institute initiative to find ways for the U.S. to achieve 4 percent gross domestic product growth.

Bush notes that a book the institute released over the summer on achieving 4 percent GDP included chapters on the importance of immigrants to growth.

A guy who started two completely pointless wars is the last person to be talking about a “benevolent spirit” with regards to anything. And I have no idea what in the hell the George W. Bush Institute for kids Who Can’t Read Good and Want to Do Other Stuff Good Too is but I’m sure it’s retarded. I mean, look who we’re talking about here.

Bush’s comments are, taken by themselves, fairly grounded in reality. Immigration is a positive thing when it comes to economics. But, hey, every now and then even my five-year-old makes a good point. And I love him beyond words. But, I’m still not going to ask his advice when it comes time to balance the checkbook or pay bills or plan for a financial future. Because that would be silly.

I understand that conservatives, who are still reeling from a major electoral defeat just a month ago, would want to go back and study their last success as a way forward. But I think they’re barking up the wrong tree here. I mean, Hitler and Mussolini were successful politicians but you don’t see Germany and Italy going back to look at them for ideas on how to run a country. Just saying. And yes, I know that when Hitler is mentioned the legitimacy of the discourse pretty much goes out the window. But, if you’re coming to this site for anything even vaguely resembling legitimate discourse then I actually kind of feel sorry for you.
