George W. Bush “Shocked!” by World Hostility toward America
President George W. Bush has expressed shock and disbelief at America’s deteriorating image around the world. In an unprecedented display of remorse, he said:
“Maybe I shouldn’t have invaded Iraq. They weren’t a threat to us. I just made up all that shit about weapons of mass destruction and bringing democracy to the Middle East so I could kick Saddam Hussein’s ass and finish what my daddy started, and then Mommy would take me back and coddle me again and quit doting and swooning over Jeb all the time. But I was wrong to let my Oedipal desires dictate America’s foreign policy. Right after the 9/11 attacks, America had the empathy of the entire world. I had a golden opportunity and I blew it. My bad.
“And maybe I should have tried to work with Congress instead of just walking all over them and pretending I was a dictator. And when New Orleans was drowning three years ago, I should've actually gone there in person instead of just peeking out the window of Air Force One as we flew over.
“Daddy, I broke the country. Can you bail me out again?”
