Commie George W. Bush Doesn’t Believe In American Exceptionalism

by Jack Stuef

Hey, George W. Bush found some people willing to spend time to listen to him. He thinks immigration reform will happen, even though all Mexicans want to come here to sell drugs and gay-marry each other for the government health benefits. But why does Bush want this to happen? He thinks the country is getting “nativist.” Uh oh. This guy’s officially dead to the Teabaggers.

“What’s interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some ‘isms’ that occasionally pop up. One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism. So if you study the ’20s, for example, there was an American-first policy that said, ‘Who cares what happens in Europe?’” Bush said. “And there was an immigration policy that I think during this period argued we had too many Jews and too many Italians, therefore we should have no immigrants. And my point is that we’ve been through this kind of period of isolationism, protectionism and nativism. I’m a little concerned that we may be going through the same period. I hope that these ‘isms’ pass.”

Damn straight! Let’s end all “isms.” Capitalism, for one. Also, baptism. And botulism. No, let’s keep that last one.

During another segment of the interview, Bush also claimed that he was “through with politics,” and that he wasn’t interested in getting involved with campaigning or fundraising for future candidates.

Good. They’re not interested either. Learn yourself about the brown scourge, George! [HuffPo]

Solipsism. Solipsism is an ism. End it, NOW!

SecretMuslin February 4, 2011 at 4:12 pm

In Dubya's case, nepotism…

facehead February 4, 2011 at 11:54 am

The worst 'ism' to pop up is priapism, but I agree that flatulism will pass.

ManchuCandidate February 4, 2011 at 11:55 am

What happened to W?

I feel sorry for the poor Messican who donated his brain (at gunpoint) to give W one.

HistoriCat February 4, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Cheney released the mind lock he had on W. George woke up one day and said, "what the hell is going on? Last thing I remember is asking Dick to help me find a VP candidate."

MrsBiggTime February 4, 2011 at 11:56 am

Bushism. Palinism. Jism.

OkieDokieDog February 4, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I think GWB might be trying to distance himselfism from the Palinism.

An_Outhouse February 4, 2011 at 12:25 pm


PublicLuxury February 4, 2011 at 11:57 am

Another Bush-ism. The road to evil is Bush-ism.

TanzbodenKoenig February 4, 2011 at 11:57 am

Wow, it's amazing how much worse the wingnuts have gotten in 2 years that I can read those excerpts and say to myself "Wow, I wish the Teabaggers and Palin fanatics were more like that moron, those were the good ol' days."

jrients February 4, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I can't be the only around here who used to go around depressed at the fact that things were so bad under W that it made me nostalgic for his dad's era. Now this. Christ.

Terry February 4, 2011 at 12:53 pm

It's part of the whole plot. In addition to giving old patrician f'ers more and more money, they are leading us to believe that it's actually ok when the old patrician f'ers are officially in charge, too.

lulzmonger February 4, 2011 at 2:23 pm

There is an ethical corollary to the Overton Window – a Wild Man Of Borneo Window, if you will.

In America, that fucker has taken off like a rocket among certain subcultures ever since the inauguration of a certain very urban former law professor.

SorosBot February 4, 2011 at 11:57 am

Georgie, if you're through with politics, then why not stop giving all these interviews, go back to your fake ranch and just shut up so America can try and get over the trauma of the eight-year abusive relationship we just got out of?

comrad_darkness February 4, 2011 at 12:13 pm

He was done with the fake ranch way before he was done with politics.

Terry February 4, 2011 at 12:54 pm

Georgie lives in the big city of Dallas now. Crawford was a prop.

harry_palmer February 4, 2011 at 11:57 am

How can I miss this douchebag if he won't go away?

SorosBot February 4, 2011 at 12:07 pm

George, don't away mad; George, just go away.

PublicLuxury February 4, 2011 at 11:58 am

I wonder who gave him the Cliff Notes version of history? He's not smart enough to have grasped it without LOTS of help.

freakishlywrong February 4, 2011 at 11:58 am

I would also say, Dubya, that politics is well and through with you. Please go away and don't resurface until you are arrested. Tnxbai!

PublicLuxury February 4, 2011 at 11:58 am


OkieDokieDog February 4, 2011 at 11:58 am

So many isms, so little time.

Maman February 4, 2011 at 11:58 am

hypocriticalism much?

baconzgood February 4, 2011 at 11:59 am

This falls under the old 1000 monkies typing for 1000 years saying. I mean he's given us so many botched thoughts and pregnant pauses over the years he was bound to say somthing that made sense.

P.S. Kayne West still doesn't think you like him Georgie.

magic_titty February 4, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Sonofabitch is making it harder for me to insult him.

V572625694 February 4, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Just keep remembering Guantánamo, Abu Ghraib, WMDs in Iraq, Katrina, etc. No problem now, huh?

magic_titty February 4, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I'm cured!

Socialism, hypnotism, patriotism, materialism
Fools making laws for the breaking of jaws
And the sound of the keys as they clink
But there's no time to think.

charlesdegoal February 4, 2011 at 12:25 pm

In the Federal City you been blown and shown pity.

Lascauxcaveman February 4, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Even XKCD has a take on "nativism."

Texan_Bulldog February 4, 2011 at 12:03 pm

It's okay–tea baggers don't watch C-Span. They spend all their time watching Snowbilly & the other retards on TLC. Oh and buying NASCAR collector edition cars on QVC.

vulpes82 February 4, 2011 at 12:38 pm

They don't watch it, but they do call into it in order to rant about The Blacks oppressing the white man.

elviouslyqueer February 4, 2011 at 12:05 pm

So says the poster boy for malapropism.

user-of-owls February 4, 2011 at 12:05 pm

What’s interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some ‘isms’ that occasionally pop up. And that, my fellow nativists, is why I steadfastly refuse to study.

freakishlywrong February 4, 2011 at 12:05 pm

OT/ but our criminal, extreme right wing Gov. in Florida just sent back all the federal monies that were to be used to establish the exchanges and to help implement ACA. Thanks for that too, fuckwits.

imissopus February 4, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Considering all the Medicare fraud he was responsible for, the irony is beyond remarkable.

horsedreamer_1 February 5, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Or, maybe, he just learned the error of government health-care (it's ripe for abuse)?

Har har har.

Ruhe February 4, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Speaking reasonably about the lessons of our own history? Swearing off politics altogether? Look out Bud Selig! W's comin' for your job now!

horsedreamer_1 February 5, 2011 at 11:47 pm

Don't be surprised if Jeff Novitzky compares Barry Bonds to Saddam Hussein during the perjury trial, either.

As is: I'm on Bonds's side.

Oblios_Cap February 4, 2011 at 12:07 pm

For some folks age just doesn't bring wisdom.

W. Still an idiot asshole.

user-of-owls February 4, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Bah, he's still full of jism.

YasserArraFeck February 4, 2011 at 12:08 pm

"nativism" is a contraction of the phrase "native boy jism"..also known as "Rush's vacation dessert"
His "wafer-thin mint", as it were

Gratuitous World February 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

so is this considered another 'Bush-ism?'

i'm confused.

user-of-owls February 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

"What do we want?
No isms!"

"When do we want it?
Not now!"

comrad_darkness February 4, 2011 at 12:11 pm

So, he was a puppet all those years. Big fucking surprise.

Monsieur_Grumpe February 4, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Oh you’re not getting off that easily cowboy. You’re going to go on Glenn Beck’s show for a week or so and help him explain world politics with nothing but chalk boards and Beck’s and your feeble brains.

Terry February 4, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Beck may end up calling Bush a socialist by Friday.

nounverb911 February 4, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Time to abolish NEPOTISM!

comrad_darkness February 4, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Oh, and George, actions speak louder than words. Which makes you forever a clueless loser.

harry_palmer February 4, 2011 at 12:15 pm

"he wasn’t interested in getting involved with campaigning or fundraising for future candidates"

because a) he's a selfish, self-absorbed twit, and b) they won't let his radioactive ass anywherre near them

nounverb911 February 4, 2011 at 12:15 pm

In related news, Skull and Bones has announced that they plan on replacing Geronimo's skull with W's as soon as it is available.

metamarcisf February 4, 2011 at 12:18 pm

W. likes fish sticks. He likes to put them into his mouth.

ifthethunderdontgetya February 4, 2011 at 12:19 pm

I'd say it's pretty exceptional of a country to give a cretin like Dumbya two four-year terms as its chief executive, in spite of a record of accomplishment limited to not choking to death on his own vomit and being born into the right family.

Schmannnity February 4, 2011 at 12:22 pm

His birthplace is on the move. Soon he too will be from Kenya.

DeeJayKitteh February 4, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Wow, it's amazing what he says when he doesn't have Cheney and Rove's hands shoved up his ass, trying to make his mouth move.

charlesdegoal February 4, 2011 at 12:26 pm

"… if you study history…" and God forbid you should.

littlebigdaddy February 4, 2011 at 12:26 pm

I hate to be paranoid, but I wonder if this legacy polishing is intended to open the door for a Jeb Bush candidacy. The Teabaggers are split among various white trash types, and a Bush could easily win the country club crowd. Mittens and Huntsman are both magic underwear types, which will not play well in the Bible Belt.

zhubajie February 5, 2011 at 8:13 am

George the Father, George the Son, Jeb the Holy Ghost!

Guppy06 February 4, 2011 at 12:30 pm

"One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism."

Or, as I like to call them, "my base." heh heh

An_Outhouse February 4, 2011 at 12:30 pm

The baggers were through with Georgy a long time ago. After all, he wasn't a real conservative.They desire purity, just like another movement in history.

GOPCrusher February 4, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Until you accuse The Idiot Prince of being a war criminal. Then they get all up in your face defending the retard.

PowderedWhig February 4, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Militarism. Jingoism.

BlueinVA February 4, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Is it just me, or has Dubya been reading up on history? He was never this expansive when he was president. Or is it just that he sounds like Einstein after two solid years of Palin and the Tea Baggers?

vulpes82 February 4, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Truly we have come to a sorry state when this dumbass sounds like a sane, intelligent Republican.

hagajim February 4, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I'll have to add the quotes from that interview to my famous list of W doucheisms….just like the fools don't get fooled again….dipshit.

spinozasgod February 4, 2011 at 12:44 pm

the tea-tards are going to be "going native" all over his a$$….

Chet Kincaid February 4, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Ism you is or ism you ain't my anchor baby?

mourningnmerica February 4, 2011 at 12:48 pm

If Bill the Butcher were alive today, he would hate the Tea Party.

CivicHoliday February 4, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Really, all this proves to me is that his dumb cowboy act was, in fact, political theater. That doesn't make him a better president (in fact, more insidious) but it does make you wonder what the last 8 years might have been like had it not been for Rummy, Cheney, Wolfie, and all the other hawks.

CapeClod February 4, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Too bad that he never had a time during his presidency when his party had an overwhelming congressional advantage and he could have pushed through comprehensive immigration reform.

What? Nevermind.

Plowmon February 4, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Good job Georgie! Aheh, heh

Allmighty_Manos February 4, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Damn you know how bad the GOP has got when Bush can find a way to make me miss him.

LocalGirlMakesGoo February 4, 2011 at 1:15 pm

I agree 100% with whomever wrote that for him.

MiniMencken February 4, 2011 at 1:40 pm

George, I'd like to acquaint you with a favorite ism of your Third World dictator buddies, Faradism.

Preferred Customer February 4, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Wait. Did he get a brain transplant since leaving office? How the F*&K is he this coherent? I not only understood everything he said, I found myself agreeing with it.

Was he just suffering from lead poisoning when he was in the White House?

OneYieldRegular February 4, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Good heavens, who was that terrifying zombie audience? Ah. Got it. They've been listening to him for nearly 40 minutes by this point. I'm saving a screengrab of that for my desktop, just so I Never Forget.

Sassomatic February 4, 2011 at 2:16 pm

I think "isms" are just what he had for lunch.

Sassomatic February 4, 2011 at 2:17 pm

George W Bush sounds intelligent and reasonable compared to the current GOP leadership. We are through the looking glass people.

Chet Kincaid February 4, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Immediately after the Super Bowl, Bush, Roethlisberger and Michael Vick will embark on the "Respect For Ladies, Dogs And Mexicans Rehabilitation Tour."

lulzmonger February 4, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Whoa, dude! You applied the OTHER "N" word to America? In public?

Your private plane: I'd make mighty damn sure it's VERY well-maintained before every single flight you ever take in it from now on. SRSLY.

The exports of Libya are numerous in amount. One thing they export is corn, or as the Indians call it, "maize." Another famous Indian was "Crazy Horse." In conclusion, Libya is a land of contrast. Thank you.

Negropolis February 5, 2011 at 12:12 am

It have been nice if he didn't play retarded in office all those years and took on the crazier wing of his party, instead of feeding it bullshit. Whatever his actual policies, his tone on immigration has always been moderate, especially back in his days as governor; an on a personal level he always had a good relationship with hispanic and latino communities. In fact, if you watch clips of interviews and debates during the Republican primary in which he ran, he seems down right centrist by today's Republican Party standards; it's scary as hell.

I don't know; these words of his give me a total sadz. :( It actually makes me more disappointed in him. This is sort of like the "Ground Zero mosque" controversy, last year, that he could have squelched given how publically protective he was of Muslim American communities, even if he did later on refuse to tamp down on the rampant Islamophobia that infected just about every corner of his party, and even parts of the other major party.

smellyal8tr February 5, 2011 at 9:05 pm

It would have been a totally different eight years w/out Cheney and Rummy. If W had stood up to the right (and that's a big IF) and picked Ridge or Keating as VP, things would have been much, much different. 9/11 would probably have still happened, but W wouldn't have been stampeded into war by the remnants of the FORD (!) Administration. Too bad, really.

sqeptiq February 5, 2011 at 12:15 am

If only someone had convinced him that moronicism was also a bad thing, he wouldn't have run for president.

BarackMyWorld February 5, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Despite the fact that their policies were 99.9% identical, Reagan is beloved by the Tea-baggers, and Bush reviled.

What's that say about the baggers?

Either there's something they know about Dubya and/or Ronnie we don't, or they have the intellectual consistency of a schizophrenic used-car salesman.

a_pink_poodle February 8, 2011 at 12:45 am

I miss the guy :(
