Other than some late night play, the mainstream press apparently has not problem with President Bush waving the finger to the assembled press. There is a quote floating around from some right wing nut job that says Bush is "a man extraordinary vision and brilliance ."
I don't think public displays of petulance and the use of a demeaning gestures as you walk away invalidates the idea the Bush is "extraordinary". But, where some presidents might engage the press with words or at least banter, Bush's mind works too slowly and his capacity for self-expression is so weak that all he has left is a rude gesture. Bush is a weak brained, weak willed slacker, who bought his way to his party's nomination and cheated his way into the Presidency. The best thing that every happened to George Bush, besides someone giving him an unearned partial ownership in a major league baseball club, was 9/11. And, he has ridden that horse about as far as it will go.
This is the man who, until he squandered the title, was the leader of the free world. He is a symbol of this country and by this gesture he is telling all Americans and, in fact, the world what he thinks of us.
The 51% who placed this fraud in office must be very proud.
