George is promoting his memoirs and has this to say about Kanye West:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/11691837

I like this bit:

"I resent it, it's not true. And it was one of the most disgusting moments in my presidency."

Really, you can't think of anything else that might be more disgusting about your presidency?

Mat.

Heh. This was mentioned on Democracy Now yesterday, just as a tangent. I am pretty sure that was not the most disgusting moment of the presidency.
I will not be buying the memoir.

Gee, I'm pretty sure I can think of a few (thousand) things that might just conceivably qualify as ever so slightly more disgusting.

I humbly submit that either way, West's main crime was speaking the truth. Most black people aren't Bush's rich friends; they are therefore a subcategory of the larger group of people that George Bush doesn't care about, a group that also includes most people of all races and ethnic groups. All West said was Bush doesn't care about black people. This doesn't preclude Bush not caring about other people. There's enough of Bush's not giving a shiitake if you live or die to go around.
Amen.

I'm not a huge Kanye West fan, but to this day I think he was right, mostly because GWB lacks the intellectual bandwidth to notice or care about most things. And here's a great example of that!

Yeah, I hate the way Kanye does things because a lot of what he says is true but he just doesn't know how to go about saying it so that he doesn't come out looking like the bad guy. And you know what? Beyonce did have the best video.

I find this "disgusting", as documented by David Corn, Huffington Post, Posted: September 1, 2005 04:56 PM:

Quote:
Two AP photos from this past Tuesday, placed side by side, tell a story."

Quote:
Here a fellow named George W. Bush is having a delightful time playing a guitar given to him by country singer Mark Wills after a visit to Naval Base Coronado in sunny southern California. It's fun to be president.

Quote:
Here firefighters and rescue workers try to cope with the worst disaster to strike Americans since 9/11. It is not a good day for them.

+1.

Kanye is a bit of a jackass, but sometimes his heart is in the right place.

This Week in Blackness had an excellent response to this as well. (This Week in Blackness is always hilarious and topical and is totally worth a watch.)

I just watched a bit of Bush's interview video. It reminded me of this classic from aught five, the Legendary K.O.'s reboot of "Golddigger". K.O. was able to put this out before Bush ever set foot in post-Katrina Nola.

George, all kinds of people remember what you did and what you didn't do. Disgusting.
