Recently former President George H.W. Bush (Sr.) identified a couple of lefty "sick puppies:"
....."It's not just the right." He complained, "there are plenty of people on the left."
While he said he does not believe in personal name-calling, he singled out MSNBC personalities Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow calling them "sick puppies."
"The way they treat my son and anyone who's opposed to their point of view is just horrible," Mr. Bush said.... Source: Think Progress
I guess Bush Sr. thinks he should know "sick puppies" since he was a former CIA Director and he worked under a real sicko Richard Nixon.
But even in all of Poppy Bush's dealings, he is likely not to have found someone as deeply disturbed as his own son.
President George W. Bush you may recall ran the Iraq War on Bible quotes supplied by former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
...In 2003 while lobbying leaders to put together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France's President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they must be defeated. Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:
God also talks GW and Jr. hears him.

...One of the delegates, Nabil Shaath, who was Palestinian foreign minister at the time, said: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I am driven with a mission from God'. God would tell me, 'George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did. And then God would tell me 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq'. And I did." Source: The Guardian.Co.Uk
But Shrub Bush wasn't a harmless psychotic.
GW is responsible for over a million Iraqi and Afghani deaths. Not to mention, Jr. was responsible for torture and Guantanamo.
Poppy Bush sees Progressive Commentators Olbermann and Maddow as real sickos, but he doesn't mention that he and Barbara raised a probable sociopath.
GW likely believes that he merely did God's will while in office. That is probably why Jr. Bush doesn't feel disturbed by his actions. The ruin of the economy and the rip off by the Wall Street fat cats under his leadership was merely God acting through Jr.
Evidently, God can run the universe with exquisite order but he can't win wars and run an economy.
So Sr. Bush says he knows a sicko when he sees one. Yet, he just can't identify the sicko that he raised. Perhaps, in truth, the 'apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.'
