Angie Pratt: Top 10 "W" Stands for

Top 10 "W" Stands for

By Angie Pratt

The top ten answers to what the "W" in George W Bush stands are:

"W" stands for Wimp There are lots of examples on how George W Bush is a wimp. He's always ducking out. The most recent is his ducking out of a presidential debate. What's the matter "W?" Afraid to answer a few questions from some one whose initials aren't G.O.P.?

"W" stands for Wuss Now you may think that Wuss is the same thing as Wimp. Well . it isn't. Wuss is more similar to chicken manure. George W Bush is a true artisit when it comes to spreading odoriferous material from the barnyard.

"W" stands for Wishy-washy George W Bush has his legs spread out so far from straddling issues that I'm surprised he hasn't hurt himself. I proclaim that I'd sign a bill for continuation of the assault weapons' ban, but, no, I won't ask the congress to send me a real one to sign. Sigh.

"W" stands for War George W Bush said it himself. He's the War President. Some bragging point. Nuff said

"W" stands for Wrong Has George W Bush made a right decision? I mean come on. He's way off the mark even when intelligence is right!!!

"W" stands for Waffler Talking about flipflopper!! George W Bush is Mr. Waffler himself. George W Bush is for an issue just as long as it covers his arse.

"W" stands for Whoppers Oh My. Can you imagine the fish stories that George W Bush spins? I'm surprised his nose hasn't poked some one's eye out in its travels to la la land.

"W" stands for Worthless George W Bush has done more to make the American economy worthless than any other president has in history. Record budget deficits. Unemployment. Poverty. Uninsured Americans. Dollar plummit. Children left behind -- to pay the debt.

"W" stands for Whitewasher The list here is too long to enumerate. A few examples include. the 9/11 report. The Iraq war report. Abu Ghraib prison, the Wilson affair, etc. etc. etc.

And finally the "W" in George W Bush has to stand for Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing I mean come on compassionate conservative? Moderate? George W Bush is the king of "bait and switchers" who wolf your lunch.
