Default Bush To G-8 - 'Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter'

You cannot make up s**t more ridiculous than what he says

George Bush surprised world leaders with a joke about his poor record on the environment as he left the G8 summit in Japan.

The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock.
...

Mr Bush also faced criticism at the summit after Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian Prime Minister, was described in the White House press pack given to journalists as one of the "most controversial leaders in the history of a country known for government corruption and vice".:

The White House apologised for what it called "sloppy work" and said an official had simply lifted the characterisation from the internet without reading it.

Either McCain or Obama will be an improvement over this fecklessness

You're right. Bush should be strung up for not putting that package together. After all, you simply can't trust the bureaucrats in the state department.

Thanks for once again taking my post out of context

I am not blaming Bush for the press package on the Italian government- read the headline to the thread

Can you let anything criticizing him ever pass muster?

He does set a tone of competence though, doesn't he?

In the pettiness of this environment....

can anyone let anything good be said about him?

I just find the blinding negativity quite silly... so I point it out EVERYTIME I see it.

You have read my critiques of Bush before. So you know I don't support him per se.

But I also don't support the pettiness that has engulfed the press and the left about him.

Bush is one of those guys who just doesn't understand when it's time to be serious and when it's time to joke. Pretending to not take the issue of pollution seriously at the G8 Summit in front of world leaders who already think you're either A) retarded or B) the spawn of the devil, is what I might call bad timing.

In that case have you thought about changing your moniker from Preacher to Sisyphus?

Actually, Bush was wrong about being the "world's biggest polluter." So my question is, when is somebody going to call China out about it?

Quote:
China has overtaken the United States as the world's biggest producer of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, figures released today show.
