Covering Cinema From All Across The African Diaspora

Quote Of The Decade

Reading through the voluminous pages of the current issue of Esquire Magazine, which I picked up yesterday - voluminous this time around because it's their 75th anniversary issue, a special collector's edition - I came across a feature on our current president, George W. Bush, titled What Bush Meant, which essentially laments the failures of his reign.

Right underneath the title is a quote by the man himself, made in December of 2000, soon after he stole the election away from Al Gore, which reads, "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heckuva lot easier. Just as long as I'm the dictator."

The article doesn't reveal the context in which the comment was made and who he made it to. Regardless, whether said in jest or with real intent, it's certainly telling of the man's state of mind as he began his presidency, and we could say a foretelling of things to come, because his conduct over the last 8 years has been a near-equivalent to that of a dictator, and our Democrat-ruled Congress and Senate did little to impede him.

I think I speak for millions of Americans when I say he won't be missed!

Bye George! See you at the movies next month!
