The Inexplicable Behavior of President George Walker Bush

Can you explain the actions of this President?

Randall Parker from Parapundit has a great post about the puzzling behavior of President George Bush. I am not anti-American (criticism of George Bush is not anti-Americanism either, although some people try to dress up their anti-Americanism as criticism of him), and neither is Randall, but President Bush’s behavior in my opinion could not hurt American interests more than if that was his aim. The Parapundit post makes some far fetched but funny attempts to explain what President Bush is up to.

El Presidente Jorge W. Bush has become something of an enigma in American politics. However did he manage to become such an unrelentingly bad President of the United States? What motivates him to pursue so many policies harmful to the United States of America? I’ve made comments here asking why our elites hate us and want to replace us. Noted evolutionary theorist Greg Cochran, responding specifically about Bush, advances some hypotheses to explain the destruction derby that is the Bush Presidency. First he points to one of Bush’s quotes for a clue:

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” – George W. Bush

Then Greg lists various possible explanations for Bush’s otherwise seemingly inexplicable behavior as President:

  • There could be other explanations than hating us. He might have some really important goal in mind, a goal that’s a lot more important than the fate of the United States—a goal so obviously more important that we’d cheer on our own destruction if we only understood. Or maybe Iraq is part of a subtle yet reasonable plan that just can’t be explained in public. — I mean, if everyone knew that we were searching for that buried spaceship and/or time machine in Ur of the Chaldees, if everyone knew we had fought our way into the Garden of Eden and were right now analyzing the DNA of the Tree of Life (along with that of some cherubim that couldn’t stand up to 6,000 rounds a minute of 30 millimeter DU), probably it’d ruin everything.
  • Even if he does hate us, well, maybe we deserve it. Ever think of that? He could be God’s judgment on us. Maybe it’s
    self-reinforcing. He pulls a little shit, we put up with it, and his disdain grows. Iterate that. =
    After a while, we look utterly contemptible and he figures that any country that would put up with this kind of crap must also deserve it. Christ, at this point, he’s probably planning self-nuking. Maybe he’s a broad-band telepath and can feel the ocean of evil around him in Washington. We bad.
  • Maybe the reasons are personal. That can happen: national destinies have been decided in the boudoir, or for that matter by a tumor growing at the base of some leader’s brain. So, maybe he was mad at Saddam for that supposed assassination attempt on the family in Kuwait. Maybe Wolfowitz’s Arab girl friend is the worm in the apple. Maybe Bush had that bad Lawrence-of-Arabia experience with some Ay-rab back in prep school. Maybe the twins were secretly dating Saddam and just couldn’t give up a real man. Maybe Laura yells out the wrong name.
  • Maybe he’s a Skoptsy. That could make a guy go sour. [
    Skoptsism was, however, not exterminated, and grave scandals constantly arose. The most remarkable feature of this extraordinary sect has always been the type of people who joined it. Nobles, military and naval officers, civil servants, priests and merchants were to be found in its ranks, and so rapidly did the numbers increase that 515 men and 240 women were transported to Siberia between 1847 and 1866 without seriously threatening its existence. In, 187? many trials of Skoptsi took place all over Russia. In 1874 the sect numbered at least 5444, including 1465 women. Of these 703 men and 100 women had mutilated themselves ]
  • Maybe he’s loaded. Of course it’s impossible to imagine a President who’s high as a kite half the time—impossible to imagine, but easy to remember [ JFK and Max Jacobson] Maybe the whole Administration is a cult centered around some really potent weed—naw, no one’s ever seen anything like that in the Middle East.
  • Maybe the aliens replaced his pineal gland with an AM radio receiver and he’s channeling Rush (who channels him. scary. ).
  • Maybe he’s dying and wants to see Armageddon before the end.
  • There’s always the possibility that he’s the high-intensity version of Bill Ayers—an SDS bomb-thrower who was the son of the CEO of Commonwealth Edison. You know, child of the power elite who turns against the system.. losers striking back at a hyper-competent father. Bush did it right – his way is slow, but is enormously more effective. Of course he had a few helpers – obviously Cheney and Rove are part of the cell.
  • Or, maybe he’s a mole, a loyal agent of some power that wants the US ruined – or that once did. Sometimes those sleeper agents don’t get the word, especially when the power in question doesn’t really exist any more. Such a left-behind mole must frequently ask himself – what would
    Andropov  do?
  • Maybe he’s trying – rather successfully, I might add – to discredit representative government and bring back the King over the Water. A Jacobite, rather than a Jacobin.
  • Maybe it’s all really the outward manifestation of a power struggle within the Masons.
  • You can’t forget impersonation, the old switcheroo. The real George W. Bush is choking on pretzels in the Château d’If right now.

Read the rest for yourself, it is very funny.
