Pathetic events in a plot are also not to be confused with tragic events. In a tragedy, the character brings about his or her own demise, whereas those invoking pathos often occur to innocent characters, invoking unmerited grief."
These photos of the "leader of the free world"taken by Reuters head photo editor Jim Bourg are certainly revealing. These were snapped after the Bush farewell address. Do you suppose he was crying behind that door before walking in? Remorse? I doubt it. Realizing his entire presidecy was an abject failure? Perhaps. But Pictures are worth a thousand words so without further comment...
I'll let them speak for themselves.
I imagine when he became president, for the first time in his life he felt he actually succeeded at something, and that people respected him. In the eyes of his daddy, for instance, (who always regarded him as a fool and a buffoon) this was his chance to show them, and boy, did he ever!!! Yet in conclusion, he realizes he beat out James Buchanan as the worst president in history, that he is more of a buffoon than those who knew him well even were willing to admit. This isn't remorse but disappointment that the very people whose pockets he attempted to line won't be back slapping him and giving him fat fluff jobs on their boards.
The thing is, to these sociopaths who put him in the white house, he WAS a success. It's just that he is such a pitiful moron, he thinks HE had something to do with it, though. He was in fact merely the "amiable" public face (yes, I know that's a stretch but compared to Cheney or Wolfowitz....) that allowed them to "redistribute" untold billions -actually trillions into their personal accounts and those of their friends. And now, these same sociopaths don't even attempt to bother pretending there is anything but a legacy of failure, sabotage, and looting.
I'll bet he doesn't get even one Xmas card from the bunch....
