George Bush--Definitely Ad Nauseum

Editorial Note: Thanks to user Thomas Veil at MacRumors.com's Political Discussions & War Discussion Forum for pointing this out.

There have been a number of bad Presidents in American history, but I'm racking my brains to think of one so widely hated by the world. Partly, it's just more apparent because of the internet. Additionally, people around the world are more interested and concerned with global events than they once were (a simple by-product of more advanced communication). However, it is just dishonest not to attribute this to the magic of George Walker Bush.

What is it of which I speak? George Bush has been voted the best movie villain for his appearance in Farenheit 9/11 by readers of the British magazine, Total Film. A dose of satire is good for any administration, but feelings about Bush around the Earth have escalated from mild-manner fun-poking to true frustration and despair. And it is not fair to argue that F9/11 was skewed and that is the origin of all of these people's impressions. People see Bush everywhere--In the New York Times, the BBC, The Guardian, the Hindu, the Japan Times, Al-Ahram--everywhere. And this is what they think of the President of the United States, the leader of this nation, and, for now at least, the leader of the free world.

It's not the whole world's fault either. Total Film: Thanks for this Total Shame. We probably deserve it.

you dipshit. I'm posting anonymously coz I don't want to waste time signing in, but you know who I am. First of all, Total Film got an opportunity to write about it coz of your Democratic-goggled moron Michael Moore. (At a pre-election interview Michael Moore was adamant on having hte popular vote as the deciding criteria because that moron thought that 2004 is going to be a repeat of 2000...muhahaha...Moore-on!!!) Don't blame it on Bush, blame it on Moore.

As regards negative articles in the media (in the US or outside), tell me when HAVE the Republicans got good publicity. The media has always been biased and have supported you Dems.

Obviously the jihadi nations will hate Bush coz he flushes their terrorists out and will write poorly about him and his government. Obviously the pussy Europeans nations like France will not support Bush and write poorly about him and his government (Let the terrorism continue, we want a stable economy!!!). Half the articles are about his facial expressions, the other half about how he is a sadist.

His plans is to impose Democracy in nations which will not learn otherwise. I mean do you really think one could persuade Saddam (and Osama No. 2 Zarqawi) to be a goody-goody boy. Do you really think one could persuade the Taliban to behave like 2 year olds. C'mon. You gotta flush these ppl out. Give his view/plan a chance.

(Although you don't write about this, please don't ever call Iraq a Vietnam. The number of deaths proves that Iraq is no where close to being a Vietnam).

I'm glad that this world has some strong nations and governments like USA, UK and Australia.

Anshuman, my friend, simply:
1) Michael Moore's opinion on the popular vote has nothing to do with my entry
2) I guess you don't remember Ronald Reagan, who, to this day, still gets LOADS OF POSITIVE press despite an incredibly underwhelming tenure in office...And what about the unsubstantiated press Clinton got about Whitewater, the supposed 'murder' of Vince Foster, etc. And the impression created from misquotes, distortions, and lies that Al Gore was prone to attention-hogging and exaggerating...And the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and the air time that got.
3) The way we're "flushing" these people out isn't working, is creating more terrorists, and is hurting the people of the invaded countries, particularly Iraq.
4) Iraq has also been much shorter than Vietnam. There are startling similarities between the lack of focus and a plan that our government is demonstrating now and such characteristics of administrations in Vietnam. Also, the increasing number of stories about troops lashing out at civilians because they can't figure out who the enemy is reveals that we are dehumanizing both the Iraqi population and our own military...Similar to Vietnam.
5) I'm glad that this world has strong nations, too. Now, I wish they'd just grow up.
6) Thanks for commenting. Next time, try to ridicule me with better arguments.

I don't think democrats love Moore, in general. He's an entertaining story teller and makes some good points. However, these are marred by the drawing of some connections that are a bit ridiculous. If he stuck to his main points, he'd be fine, but some of the side plots get him into trouble.
