The Resume

    (July 6, 1946- )
    Son of President Bush
    Brother of Jeb Bush
    Part-Owner of the Texas Rangers
    Governor of Texas
    43rd US president (2001-2009)

Why he might be annoying:

    He traded Sammy Sosa and fired Bobby Valentine.
    He killed a protected bird called a killdeer and paid a fine (1994).
    He ran 3 oil companies into the ground.
    He pled guilty to a DWI.
    He's the current record holder for most executions by a governor.
    He has poor reading skills.
    After meeting British PM Tony Blair, the press asked him if they had anything in common and he said, 'Yes, we both use Colgate Toothpaste.'
    His grammar is horrible, he says 'Me and Laura' and extends words to non-valid parameters (i.e. 'common sensical').
    He got so excited while watching an NFL playoff game, that he choked on a pretzel and fainted (January 13, 2002).
    Although both he and his father declared war, not one of his twenty plus children, nieces or nephews have served in the armed forces.
    He opted for the National Guard (using privilege to push ahead of others) during the Vietnam War, and there is a question if he fulfilled his military obligation.
    He said: 'If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier - just so long I'm the dictator' (December 18, 2001).
    He invaded Iraq on the basis that it illegally had weapons of mass destruction and they never were found.
    He is against gay marriages.
    He uses the bible as his guidebook.
    He fell off his bicycle before his daughter's graduation (May 2004).
    He likes to trade on his good 'ol boy southern charm yet he is from Connecticut.
    He declared his Iraqi invasion as 'Mission Accomplished,' yet hundreds of American troops died after that declaration.
    He is against the minimum wage to help America's working poor but is for reducing the tax burden on the wealthiest.
    He exploited America's fear on terrorism during his 2004 campaign for re-election.
    He favors censorship, not trusting Americans to decide for themselves.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He did it all for 'the kids!' (The people he can relate to most).
    He is ranked in People Magazine's 25 Most Intriguing People (1999).
    He gave Saturday Night Live's Will Ferrell a new character.
    He risked his life to visit and thank troops in Baghdad, Iraq for Thanksgiving in the middle of a war. He was the first American President to visit Iraq (November 27, 2003).
