President's Day and the Murgha President

Today, the third Monday in February is celebrated all across America as President's Day Holiday. The holiday is officially in commemoration of George Washington's birthday which fell on February 22, 1732 and reminds everyone around the world about the greatness that resonated with the words "President of United States of America. Great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln held this office and laid the building blocks of a society based on democracy, liberty and respect.

Sadly, the greatness of those men and the might of their character is put to shame by the current incumbent of the office, George Walker Bush. Also known as Junior Bush, the President is more popular for his comical acts than any of his policy initiatives. The President, or as I call him the Murgha President, has made a fool out of himself on a daily basis and does not fail to provide the viewers with a reason to laugh. Conversely, the President has ensured that the Late Night Shows and Comics don't have to work too hard to come up with fresh material everyday. He himself has taken the solemn duty to fulfill this task, and hence make the world a happier place. To many average Joes, President's comical "Bushisms" and acts of wisdoms relay a small glitter of hope. An office, once considered the 'hardest and most respectable job in America', has become an attainable goal to many average Joes all across the world. With a leader like this, how can you blame the American kids for the drop in their high school grades!! A nation's youth is always inspired by its own leaders than any other historical characters. When the American youth looks at their own President in such comical situations and 'mishaps', its hard for them to find inspiration.

Murgha President Video of the Day: A video collection of President George W. Bush at his hilarious best, with Bushisms and sound bytes to keep you laughing for hours.

Murgha President Top 5 Quotes from last year:

1. "I'm occasionally reading, I want you to know, in the second term." -- Washington, D.C., March 16, 2005

2. "I think I may need a bathroom break. Is this possible?" --in a note to to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a U.N. Security Council meeting, September 14, 2005 (View photo)

3. "Wow! Brazil is big." George W. Bush, after being shown a map of Brazil by Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brasilia, Brazil, Nov. 6, 2005

4. "Listen, I want to thank leaders of the -- in the faith -- faith-based and community-based community for being here." George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Sept. 6, 2005

5. "The relations with, uhh -- Europe are important relations, and they've, uhh -- because, we do share values. And, they're universal values, they're not American values or, you know -- European values, they're universal values. And those values -- uhh -- being universal, ought to be applied everywhere." George W. Bush, at a press conference with European Union dignitaries, Washington, D.C., June 20, 2005

Sadly, its hard for anyone to compare and compile any jokes of President Bush without leaving many and many other equally comical and utterly stupid incidents. However, the small compilation of above mentioned incidents clearly land President George W. Bush with the rarely sought title: THE MURGHA PRESIDENT.

Of course it is easy to make fun of President Bush because of his malapropism and while I am no fan of either Mr. Bush or the current administration I also cringe at the thought of having John Kerry as the President of the US for his sentence construction was no less torturous. In fact, this particular aspect of Mr. Bush often overshadows some of his better instincts and policies - few as they might be.

Case in point - consider the events of past few days. An Indian tries to buy a European steel company and the French government and President quickly get into racism while today when there was a lot of pressure on Mr. Bush to scuttle the deal of 6 key US ports being acquired by a Dubai company, he stood his ground. He was correct in stating that while it was just fine when a British company was operating these ports how is it wrong when a middle-eastern company wants to operate the same ports and does it not smack of bigotry in the Middle East? Of course, somehow the French President never arouses the same level of passion and vitriol for his acts. It would have been politically expedient for Mr. Bush to block the port deal but he never succumbed to the temptation.
