"I Understand"

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed that Dear Leader, George Bush says "I understand" a lot. I mean, a lot. Constantly. It's like he's trying to reassure us that he, um, understands what he is talking about. I find it extremely irritating. But it's what he doesn't say that really pisses me off. What he doesn't say, every time he says "I understand" is "but I don't care." That's what he is really telling us every time he says that. Don't believe me? Watch his face and body language.

Last week, when he stood before the cameras in his first presser since April, and said "I understand a gallon of gas is expensive," he didn't say "but I don't care." However, you can see it in his posture, his vocal inflections and his face. He simply doesn't care.

And this, folks, is really what his reign has been all about.
