We are used to seeing mangled language and vapid thought from the former leader of the “No” party, but yesterday’s comment was particularly galling.
This is a man who was born rich.
He never had to do a days work in his life.
His view is that the role of government is to get out-of-the-way and let those with capital dominate the life of the country.
Bush, and those like him, believe that they are better than the rest of us, because they were born into wealth and privilege.
They are not.
Bush is a good example of the American aristocracy.
Not very intelligent.
A former alcoholic and drug user.
The most unsuccessful president in history.
It is the purpose of the government to promote the general good, and it should start by taxing these bloated examples of the super-rich inheritance class.
George W. Bush became the leader of the country without any qualifications other than one, inherited wealth.
