--I applaud your effort, I do not think that you are making fun of President Bush, in fact I think that he might even enjoy watching the dancing, now Hilary might be another story. My wife and I rolled on the floor of our den as we put them thru their paces, good job. I will send this to as many of my friends as I can and I am sure that they will do the same.
--I loved the dancing Bush! I too agree with Bush's actions & nearly everything you said on the page. Thanks for introducing a little more humor into our dark world. Surely, the gods will smile on you because of this. :)
--great job we need all the laughs we can get now thanks alot
--Love it.....I'm so glad we can laugh......so glad we are free to do this...and determined to keep America free in spite of terrorism!!!!
--I, too, voted for George W. I think he is showing his true grit in this crisis. He has an inner depth that is just now emerging and will continue to show forth as this endeavor goes forward. I also believe what you said about the freedom to laugh at ourselves and our government is correct. Sometimes laughter gets you through tough times better that crying and fear. We can conquer this tragedy and come out stronger. It has already brought us closer together and ready to stand for what is right and just. If you look around you see a lot of the petty differences have taken a back seat to more important subjects. Maybe we are returning to God and patriotism when we were shifting in the other direction. "God moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform."
--I personally could use a laugh lately this clip is very funny
and i also support the president and the polices of late
very well done.
--Loved your website!! I love President Bush and if anyone would consider that insulting or degrading is definitely uptight! They differently need to grow up! It was great, I think even President Bush would get a kick out of it. He seems like a fun guy. He is human. I just wanted to let you know that. You asked how the September 11th effected my life. It has changed it completely. I am a sensitive person. I take everything personally. I was affected personally. My cousin was in the North Tower on the 92nd floor. She never mad it out. She called her mother because there was no answer on 911. She asked her to get help to the WTC, she was very calm, things like that didn't throw her. She then called her husband and left a message. Her girlfriend called home when they were on the 70th, but that was all they heard. No body was found but we know she passed to the other side, I pray she went peacefully, but the way it looked when I watched it in amazement on TV with my little boy who is only 4 years old. He was affected too. I had to explain to him what was going on, I couldn't shut it off. He asked why those planes did it. I said no dear the bad men did it, they don't love America like we do. He said oh. Then when they were showing the Taliban and Bin Laden, he didn't realize who they were, I told him that was the bad man who told those men to do that to us. He hated him since. Whenever he sees him on TV he yells the bad man. It hurt me deeply to explain this to him. He really doesn't understand, but I think he does more than I do. I had 6 people in the WTC and thank God 5 were able to get out. My cousin Diane Lapri is my Hero. I can't understand now that sooo many lives were taken everyone woke up to realize that the Firemen, Policemen, Doctors, Nurses, Emergency Workers, are all Hero's, they were always Hero's in my eyes! My father was a Policeman, I loved all the guys he worked with and those who are still there. My Uncles were all Firemen and now there sons are Firemen too. My brothers were Navy men and cousins Marines, anyone who would place someone else's life before theirs is the name of a Hero, I don't understand why it took so long for America to wake up. I see Flags displaced all over, I am Proud of that, but why did this tragedy have to wake us up? We are all equal, we are all FREE, we have to learn to love our neighbor as it says in the Bible! Do unto others.. did we all forget this?? Yes, Why?? I know my life has changed because I always lived in the past, I decided not to live there anymore, I am living for today and I am Proud to Be an American! I am proud of my Neighbors and My Firefighters My Policemen, My Soldiers, My Doctors, My Nurses and My Medical Emergency Workers, I am Proud to Call myself An American. But above all, I am Proud of President Bush and I love my God! AND I LOVE NEW YORK!!!!!!!!! I am also looking to find others who have lost loved ones in the WTC towers, I would like to write a tribute book to them. I was thinking of pictures and messages about them, I would really love to know the wonderful part about these people who were taken sooo shortly and horribly from our lives. I would like America to know them on who they were not how they ended. Anyway you could help me get this information, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks for your wonderful message.
--I love the dancing Bush! My husband and I laughed and laughed. We both voted for the President and think he's doing a great job. I'm thankful he's the one in charge during these difficult times. My comments when I first saw the dancing Bush were that this would never be allowed by the Taliban. It's things like this that set our country apart from governments ruled by fear. I think our President would love this.
--Loved it! Laughter is VERY important in recovery from tragedy. Everyone in my office loved it too, and I forwarded it to everyone in my address book. Thank you!
--Keep it on!!!! I'll bet the Prez would get a kick out of it!
--your politically correct disclaimer was unnecessary for us Bush supporters, but still a nice gesture. I find the dancing Bush hilarious and entertaining and the President would too, because he is a regular guy and doesn't love himself like the last president. I hated Reagan in the 80s (I was a liberal college student), voted for Clinton in 1992 and Bush in 2000. I now have grown up (it started in 1994) and now consider Reagan to be one of the greatest American Presidents and Clinton to be one of the worst. I love G.W. because he is everything Clinton was not: ethical, patriotic, honest, a true leader, trustworthy, imperfect in front of the cameras, a good husband, unselfish, smart in the right ways rather than the sinister ones, gutsy, able to define evil, and on and on and on. I am now a conservative running my own business and can laugh at the dancing Bush. When I was an angry (aren't they all) liberal, I would have gone berserk at a dancing Democrat and sent you hate mail. I have sent this link to all my email friends. Thanks!
--Yes, I voted for him and Yes, I laughed out loud. I like the clapping and spinning and the split. I was deeply affected. I decided to get my life off of hold, and move forward like there's no tomorrow. No time is wasted, no stress is tolerated, no bad relationships are allowed to go on, and I've made peace with myself. The patriotism I see everywhere is an unbelievable motivator. I have decided to become fearless in the face of terrorism, anthrax and anything else they can throw at us. Thanks for the website, love and happiness to you.
--This mini clip is great.....and even us Canadians have a leader that people love to laugh at cause he speaks out the side of his mouth.....but it's men like Chretien and Bush and Powell that will keep your country and ours free from the likes of Osama and the Taliban.......Keep this clip here for whole world to wish they could be as free and proud as we are in North America.
--Loved it , thanks . I'd rather find humor ( dark ) in a situation rather than the sadness & panic that the media is trying to imerse us in. Nonetheless , I have had an uneasiness and slight sense of doom since Sept. 11 and laughter , my favorite RX , eases that .
--Thanks for your efforts. I hope you get one hell of a response, and your right, we need to keep this in perspective and not panic. I will take some time to collect my thoughts and send them along.
--The President Bush dancing was great. It's not belittling, it's entertainment, and now is a good time for it. Keep up the good work.
--I went back to look at the clip again today (because I feel like crap today with allergies and I needed a little boost), and I saw your message. You've been receiving disapproving emails? That's too bad. Pres. Bush would probably laugh hysterically if he saw the clip also (His wife would probably laugh even harder). It actually makes Bush look kindof hip, in an odd sort of way. I think everyone needs something to make them laugh right now. I didn't feel like you were making fun of Bush, and neither did a lot of other people (I sent it to everyone and their grandma just about). Some people just try to find something negative about everything - they need to loosen up.
--Like you, I agree that humor is important, especially when recovering from something as devastating as the attack on the WTC. I was shocked, then horrified, then saddened by what happened. Those feeling quickly turned into rock hard resolve to meet such despicable acts with determination that the perpetrators will be brought to justice. As others before have said: "We may not have started this fight, but we will damn sure finish it!" Those cowardly, snake like terrorists have no idea who they have taken on. I guarantee, they will live to regret it. They may hide in their little weasel holes, but they won't be able to hide forever. When they're smoked out, we will have the satisfaction of seeing them brought to justice. America may have it's problems, but terrorists acts can never be justified. I have been so glad to see the patriotism and the appeals to God to bless America. Together, with God, we can make our nation great. Thanks for providing a forum to share my thoughts.
--Hey there- I must say I got a great laugh from this. To be honest with you I am ashamed of the fact that artists would have to write a disclaimer before having people view this. The fact that anyone who has the inclination to carry on with their lives and continue to be critical of our government or have any viewpoint other then what the Bush Administration thinks and be chastised as being unAmerican, is absurd. I am someone who strongly believes that there is no other way to show how "American" you are then to participate in silly acts like this, or speak out like Bill Maher did on his show. No I don't agree with the way he made his statements on his program, but I also don't agree with the way people reacted to it. After all his show is called "Politically Incorrect". What are we fighting for if it isn't protecting the freedoms that we as Americans usually take for granted. Hardly anywhere can you publicly ridicule our government and not get thrown into prison. I don't think it is being unpatriotic to speak out against something that you feel strongly about. We should all stand together, but that does not mean we have to keep our mouths shut! I am a gay latino American, born and raised in the SF area, and too many times I have been asked to keep my mouth shut because I don't count. Now that I am old enough to know better, I refuse to do so. We must carry on, or the terrorists have won, and there is no point in continuing to fight!
--I wanted to write for several reasons. I enjoyed the dancing Bush for the same reasons I enjoyed jokes about Clinton, who I admired and thought was a great President. We are free in this country (or were) to say what we think and also to joke about whatever we want.
--My coworkers and I are all pro-Bush, and we just love this!!! Thanks!
--If not for humor where would we be? Of course keep this site, its fun and good for the soul! I didn't vote for Bush, but, like you I am behind him every step of the way! I pray we will look back some day soon and say "hey George W. great job"...I will say it with pride. Keep up the good work, we need humor esp. more today than yesteryear!
--Laughter is the greatest medicine. I love the Dancing Bush... I voted for him, and will do so again. God Bless America.
--I loved this "Dancing Bush". I voted for Bush. He is a wonderful man and I think he is doing a good job. Like you said it is important to be able to laugh at yourself. I have a learning disability (don't we all) but sometimes when I speak I will say something and mean the exact opposite. I get my words mixed up and say funny things...It might seem like I am ignorant or my vocabulary is improper but it is just my brain letting me say things wrong. I laugh when it happens. Example: apples adam - adams apple - Mean the same thing to me. Anyways love the clip. I hope you don't relieve to many people disliking it.
--First: We were caught with our pants down on Sep 11. We knew that we were vulnerable, and we knew that some day, some how, we would be attacked on our own turf by some pissed off people that were dedicated to killing as many "infidels" as possible. Second: The attackers screwed up. They did not disable us, they only pissed us off. And, the buildings they attacked had people from some 80 different countries in it, so they also pissed off 80 different countries for good measure. Not only did they attack governments, they attacked financial interests that were beneficial to them. Financial interests that are now their enemies; big mistake. Their days are numbered on every front. Third: Mr. Bush is doing a bang up job of going after these folks, and we need to support him and our troops 100 percent. HOWEVER, in the mean time, he may use this as a screen for getting other internal political goals achieved, some of which you may agree with and some of which you may disagree with. Life goes on, we continue to live in a democracy, and you and I better be a part of it. Forth: Chemical, biological attack. Anthrax seems to be a fizzle in inflicting any real damage, except as far as we let panic disable us. Mr. Churchill was correct, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself! Smallpox is a much larger threat, and you better start sending letters to your congressman demanding nationwide inoculations, NOW. It was stupid to stop the smallpox inoculation program at all. Fifth: It is imperative that EVERY citizen of the United States be vigilant. If it stinks, or even smells a little bad, report it to the FBI or local authorities. If you are on an airplane and some asshole tries something funny, stop him/her, what ever it takes. Use caution and common since but don't panic. Panic is our worst enemy and it is self inflicted. Sixth: This is not a religious war. Terrorists have used religion to justify their cause and stir anger against the United States. But be sure of this, religious fundamentalism and fervor is dangerous no matter what its stripe. Religion has been used to justify the slaughter of literally millions of innocent people throughout history. This is just one more example.
--I LOVED President Bush from the very beginning! I still love the man! He's doing everything swell. The military is totally behind him and so honored for having him Chief Commander! The terrorists "look" scarier more than they are scaring us Americans! The George Bush dance will definitely continue dancing as we bomb the hell out of Afghanistan! Praise to the Americans who all come together with all their support!!!
--I think this "Dancing Bush" is a great site. Don't worry if some lack the sense of humor to get it. I happened to have voted for Gore, but think Bush is doing an outstanding job right now. That doesn't mean we can't all enjoy a good laugh. I'm sure the president himself would laugh if he saw the site.
--I had seen this MiniClip of President Bush earlier this week and I thought to myself, "With this kind of talent, humor and imagination, America continues to be an environment where the best in the human spirit can thrive!" This MiniClip shows that America is a place where we have freedom to attain an education to give you the hard skills to write a terrific little program (I'm a Macromedia Flash fan myself and just finished some fireworks to put on my own web page). Only in America would your individual spirit of creativity be nurtured and encouraged. Living in America provides you the opportunity for you to help save our spirit but our scientists and politicians the opportunity to use that same creative thought process to save our citizens from the threat of terrorism. So the President Bush MiniClip truly is a very patriotic effort.
--I agree we MUST be able to laugh at ourselves. It was said (before 9-11) that one was 10,000 times more likely to get hit by lightning than to to be killed in a terrorists attack. Since 9-11 that may have changed somewhat but even it became equal to a lightning strike, what part of my life am I going to change????
--I *LOVE* the dancing bush. I received the link yesterday and I have enjoyed it many times ever since. I also love this country, and feel more pride in being an American than I ever have in the past. With everything going on starting Sept 11th, I definitely appreciate the multiple laughs this hilarious dancing George Bush and you have given me.
--I love the dancin' Bush and I love America ...... Screw these terrorists we need to laugh in this countries time of great sadness.
--"My Bush" was soo funny. I was on the floor. Even though we are at a time of grief..we need something like to this enlighten things.
--I am now an ex-NYC resident, recently moved to LI. I was dismayed at the events in lower Manhattan and found this email to be a welcome respite from the continuous stream of personal anecdotes from the disaster. Thank you.
--please continue to post the dancing bush!!!! i emailed it to all my friends, and most wrote back saying that it is the coolest thing they've seen on the net. i think in these very somber and troubled times you have provided a real service to the people who have been able to access your site. we all need some good natured laughter now- and i bet even w has gotten a chuckle out of it! i feel happier just listening to the music. thanks for providing a moment of lightness. this is a great nation, and this site exemplifies that while our spirits may bend, they will never break. i've never been prouder to be an American. god bless us all!!!
--I'm an Australian and my husband is Scottish. We live in Brisbane, Australia and were emailed Dancing Bush a couple of days ago. I've sent it all my friends and everyone in my office. Within minutes I could hear laughter pealing through the office, everyone loved it - it rocks! We too in Australia have complete freedom of speech and are well known for satirizing our politicians. I don't see Dancing Bush as an affront to your President any more than I would see it as one to our Prime Minister or the Queen of England. People do need to laugh and we do need to laugh at ourselves. There's been too much not to laugh about since September 11 so more of the likes of Dancing Bush please!
--Two negative responses to the Dancing Bush means two people who have no sense of humor and are taking life WAY too seriously. Yes, life - and death -- are serious matters, but even our president is encouraging us to go on with our lives in as normal a way as possible. Doesn't this mean laughing? I know several people who have seen the Dancing Bush miniclip and loved it. They are intelligent and well-educated people who love this country and support our president and his administration and think they are doing a wonderful job in this time of crisis. I cannot see how anyone would find this clip offensive or belittling or degrading. I agree with others that Bush himself would probably find it humorous as well. He is a strong, faithful Christian man and that means he also knows how to celebrate the good things. There are good things happening every day in this country in response to the 9-11 attacks. Bush probably does a little dance every time he hears of one of those things. This clip is great and should stay on the site. Don't let a couple of nay sayers worry you.
--I thought your dancing president was hilarious. I am a military wife and my husband was already on deployment when this whole thing kicked off. We have been on edge wondering about what our future holds. This clip gave me a chance to laugh and just let a little bit of the tension go. I stand behind the President, as do you, and I think anyone who would be offended by this needs a reality check. It's funny! I'm sure the First Lady would get a kick out of it too.
--There is nothing wrong about this dancing Bush. I think it's sweet. You did not portray him in anyway negative. I have such a fondness in my heart for president Bush right now and if this was offensive I would know it. I wish he could see it. I'm sure he needs a good laugh himself. President Bush made me feel very safe the first day I heard him speak concerning what happened on 9-11. I'm glad he is in charge. It is much more pleasant to see his face than to see that Bin Laden jerk plastered all over the net. You did a swell thing here....keep it up!
--FIRST OF ALL, I JUST LOVED 'DANCING BUSH' AND AGREE THAT IT SHOWS NO DISRESPECT. IN FACT FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN OF OUR GREAT PRESIDENT, HE'D PROBABLY GET A KICK OUT OF THIS WEBSITE!!! I TOO SUPPORT PRESIDENT BUSH, LOVE OUR COUNTRY AND TOTALLY HATE THE TERRORISTS. I AM NOT ONE BIT AFRAID AND I AM 100% TOTALLY PISSED OFF!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
--Oh, it is so precious! What great fun! I have a feeling our President would enjoy it, too. I actually voted for Gore, but I think Bush is making the right decisions in regard to the Sept. 11 attacks. Most of all, though, I'm so proud of how our nation as a whole has responded. We will overcome these terrorist horrors, and we will do so without mass fear and prejudicial attacks on Arab-Americans. Thank you for the wonderful dancing Bush. You've given us many giggles.
--my name is XXXXXX@aol.com i did not vote for president bush but i am sure glad he won. he is doing a wonderful job and so are you i am sure mr bush would laugh right along with us. it helps ease the hurt to be able to smile. keep up the good work.
--First, thank you for that hysterical Dancing Bush. I adore
President Bush and think he is a fabulous president and I by no
means would put him down, but this was the funniest thing I have
seen in such a long time. I laughed until I cried and then of
course forwarded it to family and friends.
--September 11, 2001 horrified, saddened and terrified me. In the first couple of weeks, I was scared of everything. I remember our lights went out as my husband and I were watching tv and I panicked thinking that we had been attacked again. It was nothing a transformer or something, I'm not really sure. Now, things don't scare me, I have tried to get back to doing normal things. I went out to dinner, to a movie, shopped at the new mall, etc. I'm angry, which is probably a huge understatement, but I try not to use the language that comes to mind. The first Anthrax scare came from my brother's company, American Media. He works for National Enquirer as their accountant. That scared me as well thinking that my brother could get sick. He didn't, and all is well. This nonsensical terrorism is disgusting and I hope we find the people who are mailing out these letters and shoot them. What I have learned from all of this: I love my country and would live no other place in the world. I love my family and make sure that I tell them everyday. Little things don't seem to get on my nerves so much anymore because there are so many other things I would like to do then be annoyed. Before Sept 11th, I would have told you, "Yes I like the United States. Yes, I like the President. Yes, I am proud to be an American. After Sept 11th, I'll tell you: "Yes! I LOVE the United States! Yes! I adore President Bush and think he is the right man for the job. YES! I am PROUD to be an AMERICAN.
--I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD GET THIS TO THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF. HE WOULD PROBABLY GET A BIG KICK OUT OF IT. I DOUBT HE EVER LOOKED THIS GOOD ON A DANCE FLOOR. ROFLMHO.
--I could not find a way to EM from the webpage...........so here I go. You did a fabulous job and I thoroughly enjoyed.......possibly the first time that I smiled since the "ugly" happenings of 9/11.......I have found it not necessary to watch TV anymore, it is so depressing.......I just sign on to the computer and just search. and I received your website through a newsletter that I subscribe to...........Thank you for your view of the situation...........I feel our President Bush is doing a great job........this stuff has been happening for years, but no President had the courage..........am praying for all of our young men and women..........
--Oh my goodness, This is great. I have laughed at this too much. I voted for him and think he is the BEST President we have had in YEARS!!!!!!!!! Keep up the good work.
--I am smiling at your Dancing Bush. No I do not find it offensive. And yes, we do need to laugh. I am sure we all support the President in this war, but this is America and it is good we can do what you did with Bush. It would not happen with the henchmen who have turned loose this evil on us. Thanks.
--I loved your site! Just what we need in America, more laughter. Otherwise the terrorist will win. I didn't take offense at it at all, and I did vote for Bush. I also think he is able to laugh at himself and would think this is humorous too.
--I have thought of the challenges this nation faces several times a day, every day since September 11,2001. I surely appreciate life and my blessing more than ever before and have decided "Not to sweat the small stuff". As for the 'Dancing Bush'.....I love it!! I can't remember the last time I laughed like that! I thought it to be somewhat of a compliment for the Commander and Chief - "one cool guy" ----- he has been accepted, finally!! He has come into his own and is doing a wonderful job for us, his people, we Americans!
--Although I am a registered Democrat I support our president,my president 100%.Being a native New Yorker I feel very sad,and upset by what has happened. Whatever he chooses to do I will support him. In the meantime I think we all need to get back to as normal a life as possible. Let's spend quality time with our families and friends. Sept 11, has shown many Americans how short life really is. So let's all pray for our Mr. Bush and learn to let the little things go by and let our loved ones know how much they mean to us.
--I had this same discussion with someone who thought Doonsberry was un-American. How ridiculous, what can be more American than Freedom of Speech. "I don't necessarily agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it." -Voltaire. (I think I got the quote right)
--Well done. VERY well done. We need the laughter so very badly. And yes, I voted for Bush...I lived in Texas for 15 years and voted for him then also...both times. And will continue to vote for the man any time he wants to run for anything...trash collector, tax assessor...I have a deep admiration for him. Yes, he probably has a private agenda as well, but the fact remains that he is doing an outstanding job, leading the American people. I don't even like to think about the situation had Gore been in the White House. The actions of 9-11 have their roots in the past administration. Hey, we're at peace, let's downgrade our military and treat them badly...and now that we need them...they are there, for us. I do think that justice will be done and while it cannot bring back the lives of the people who were lost, we can continue to honor them and remember them. How has my life changed? I was laid off in August very unexpectedly...and the petty considerations there are more in perspective now. (but am doing better...we have a roof over our heads, food on the table and we've been so very blessed by people we know. And so very blessed to be living in this country. Have always been a patriot and not shy about stating my love for this country and teaching it to my kids. Now I teach them that the US has always been seriously underestimated. After Pearl Harbor, we put together the mightiest war machine that the world had ever seen, the proceeded to kick some serious butt. And we can do it again...we'll be allowed to do it again this time. And if bin Laden turns out to be a martyr...well there have been martyrs before (although I like the idea of capturing him, sending him to Sweden for a sex change operation, then back to Afghanistan to live under the Taliban a very sweet idea....)
--Hi there pal.great site loved the dancin pres.i have relatives in the us since early 1900 so i believe that the president is doing the only right thing and if he asked me to join him id do it right away.L-G sweden
--No problem!! Cute and OK... I'm sure W would laugh at it.. I voted for him and will again! Good Job and GBA!!
--I thought this was hysterical!!! I am a New Yorker and unfortunately witnessed the September 11 tragedy. Our lives have changed tremendously. Some things that changed are good...others are not but we will prevail. However, sometimes we need a good belly laugh and this did it. When I start feeling a little depressed or upset I go to the website and enjoy myself. Thank you so very very much and God bless.
--Hey, great Miniclip, Now if Bush could dance like that, I might we willing to pay big bucks at one of those fund raising dinners.. MOVE over Michael, you've got competition...! lol
--My husband and I love the president and our country, we laughed
and really thought that the dancing president was cute. We all
must keep our sense of humor in this mess we are all in. There
is more to laughter that just a giggle. We and only we can laugh
terror in the face, wipe our tears and go on with life. GOD BLESS
AMERICA AND AMERICANS ALL!!!
--Hello!! I loved this Dancing Bush site!! I also voted for President Bush and am so glad I did. I think he's a great leader and has given us Confidence and sense of Calmness in the past 2 months. I also think it's a privilege to live in a country where we can make fun of our leaders and respect them at the same time!! Keep up the great work you have been doing and God Bless You and Our Great Country...The UNITED States of America!!
--I live in south Jersey and on that horrible day in September I was leaving early to have a test done so I didn't have the news on which I do every morning by 8:30...being I was leaving by about 9:15 I didn't both...I received a call from my neighbor to put the tv on and she told me something happened at the WTC...as my tv went on...a plane was barreling into the trade center building...this was plane #2....I was, to say the last, in total shock. I felt before this event, that the world was falling apart...people didn't have any consideration for each other...kids were running amuck...I just felt things weren't normal anymore...not the way I saw it years ago growing up myself....no more compassion...love....consideration...it just felt like things were falling apart. Now...how different things are....we are all united because of this tragedy. But I wonder why? Why did this have to happen for mankind to know he has a neighbor who cares....I don't get it... But all in all....it takes a war at times to bring us all together...it's unfortunate but true...let's hope we continue to be united as a nation....continue to have compassion and consideration for our neighbors...and remember what life is really all about..... President Bush, Mayor Giuliani....two men who weren't well liked before this tragedy..and now they're like heroes in everyone's eyes....well as they should be...they both did an excellent job during all of this....and I thank them... President Bush dancing was also enlightening..cute...not making fun of him...but laughing as we need to do....thank you.
--You should keep that mini clip of The Dancing Bush on the net for the whole time he is president. It is great. I bet he would love a copy on a CD. I bet you are getting tons of hits a day. With all the stress around these days, it is sure to make ANYONE worth their gravy smile. What great moves. Half the world wishes they could dance that good.
--I love dancing bush. He's got a right to party now, like the rest of us. We are kicking ass and he's done a great job as president. I thought this clip was so impressive and fun that I sent it to all my friends. Don't take him down baby, he needs to remain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
--I loved it! I must admit that I did not vote for President Bush, but I do support him completely. I think he is doing the best possible job under the incredibly difficult circumstances. I think your dance page is great--very funny and creative!
--This is great!!! I think "W" would get a kick out of it! I didn't`t vote for him, but he sure has grown into the shoes that were placed before him to wear. I just hope public sentiment doesn't`t wain when the time comes that some of our forces are ambushed and killed, or, God forbid, captured. It chills me to the depth of my very soul to think about any of our troops being taken captive. My daily prayer is that this doesn`t happen. I realize only the tip of the iceberg has been scratched in this whole ordeal and the rest isn`t going to be easy, but we must remain a 'united we stand' nation; if we don`t, adding the final portion of that phase, 'divided we fall' will ring loud and clear.
--My closest friends say that I am as conservative as they come. I don't know about that but our President is not only a man of conviction and action, but a man with a sense of humor and the ability to laugh at himself. Unlike the recent past, this president deserves our attention and respect. That being said, a real man has a sense of humor. Also having been in law enforcement for more than ten years, humor was the way many of us handled some of the most tragic events. Don't ever be ashamed of finding humor in any situation. Some people believe that feeling bad about something really shows they care. It is my opinion that most of the ones who "feel badly" use that as a substitute for action. Feeling bad is easier than taking action to help improve a bad situation.
--I lost my brother in law because of the cowardly acts of 9/11. He was a soldier's soldier and because of that, I have not changed a thing in my life. He would have wanted us all to continue on and show them they didn't scare us. I flew to his funeral and never thought twice about it. I still drive and go everywhere I did before 9/11. Bin Laden et al made a large miscalculation. They didn't terrorize us, they made us mad. And may Allah help them because no one here will lift a finger to help them except to speed their journey to meet their end!!!!!!!!!
--Hi, the clip was great. The only change I think has happened to me is that I feel more proud to be American and also that I realize that we are all brothers, and that we need to understand each other and try harder to achieve this goal. The Afghan refugees break my heart along with all the people from the wtc and the pentagon. I pray this turns out well for everyone! Thanks for the laugh!
--I just wanted to tell you that I think this clip was absolutely hysterical. It gave me a much needed laugh. I, as most people do, feel horrible about what happened on September 11th. There were too many innocent lives lost that day. I didn't vote for President Bush, but I am glad that he's our president. I cannot see Al Gore handling this matter with the class, dignity and resolution that GW has. I fully support our government with any actions that they take in retaliation against terrorism. I also think that Americans need to lighten up and quit being afraid of everything they hear or see on TV. If September 11th taught us anything, it is that life it too short and you never know when it will be your turn to go. Live each day to it's fullest. Quit saying, "Some day I will...." Make that some day today. Reach out to the ones you love and tell them. Don't live life with regrets. Be proud, stand tall and use your heart to make some decisions, not always your head. Even if you can't give money to help, send prayers, as they are just as helpful. Thank you for providing a sounding board, and for bringing a little laughter to my day.
--I thought that this was so great. I don't understand how somebody can see that as negative. Were they watching the same thing I was? Cause what I saw was really funny. Thanks for creating that.
--I saw the dancing President Bush and enjoyed it. I agree that one of the things we Americans always had going for us is our sense of humor. I believe the President would get a kick out of the your site himself. If we go about our lives and the country's business with our Lord Jesus Christ foremost in our thoughts and prayers and leading the way for us, and with our American sense of humor, then we will be all right. If we let anyone lead us away from God and our American heritage then we will be lost for eternity.
--Thanks for the chuckle....Was needed here! God Bless!
--My first thoughts were shock, and horror, I can't get to the anger part, I doubt I ever will. My next thoughts were can we solve this without going to war, and killing more people, someone elses husband, innocent civilians, etc. Do I blame bush for going to war? NO Do I support him? He's our president, whether I always agree, I do try to support the president. Do I think Bin Laden, and his groups are behind the anthrax tainted mail? Absolutely. How I wish that I could give America's children back the innocence, stop the hate crimes, and prejudice against people who look of a mid-east nationality. How I wish that people would rally around the kids, and give them a sense of security and support. Many many kids whether or not they lost a family member that day, have been effected. Kids have nightmares, afraid to see thier parents fly, afraid for the parents to leave for work for the day. How I pray for those kids that lost family members. How I pray for those that lost loved ones. I can't help but feel that God will have final judgement, not the US, not anyone of us, but God. I can't help but think God would want us to turn the other cheek at times. I can't help but pray for those who have commited such acts against us. Even if they don't want us to pray for them. How I cry when I hear the ACLU won't let the teachers, and Parents print God Bless America on anything to be sent home, or how a student was sent home to change because her shirt said God Bless America on it! How I cry when I hear that a school would not allow a bake sale on "it's property", because it "wasn't a school fundraiser". It didn't stop the kids, they went across the street. How I feel blessed to be part of a nation that pulls together. How I still cry at times when I hear Lee Greenwood's song, God Bless the USA, or another patriotic song by an artist. How I applaud the stars of Country and Rock music, and television stars for the outpouring of love and time they have given to help raise money. How I fear that we will loose this unity and fall back into a routine, and that once again someone somewhere will show us how vulnerable we are. How I fear if we do manage to have Bin Laden surrendered to us, or kill him, that I fear someone will step right into his place. I've heard all kinds of things for and against Bush. How I pray for them to make the best decision whether I agree with it or not for the good of this Country. God Bless America, and keep you safe.
--The dancing Bush is the bomb! The way we laugh in America will always confuse and frustrate our foes. We will continue on our path of Truth, Justice, and Liberty for all My Fathers Father Fought for our freedom, My Father and my Brothers fought for our freedom I, My Sons and Daughters, and son's of son's will fight for freedom. This is not negotiable. To quote a famous song of holiday "Laughing All The Way"
--I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. This tragedy happened to bring people closer together and to bring people back to who we are. AMERICANS. We laugh, we sing and we enjoy ourselves. We have to live life to the fullest. Life is too short. If everyone lived like today is the first day of your life and tomorrow is the last, we would enjoy ourselves. And the people on the highways with road rage should realize that the end comes soon enough without helping it along. KEEP AMERICA ALIVE
--Even as greatly as the September 11th tragedy has affected my life, I still find this very funny. My husband was one of the many thousands who have been laid-off because of the economic impact of that event. I know that I can't say that I lost anyone personally because I am so far away from the actual event. I live in Texas. My husband doesn't work for the airlines but, his former company had to lay-off people worldwide. It amazes me to think that this one terrible travesty can have such a negative effect on the entire world economy, but it has. I have always heard that a recession is when your neighbor is
laid-off and a depression is when you are. I believe that to be true. I don't feel a recession is imminent, I am afraid a depression is coming. It's makes me very fearful for my fellow Americans. I can only pray that I am wrong about this. I suggest that we all pray for the safety and welfare of America because what happens to us seems to affect everyone. Sorry if this depresses anyone, but I just felt like getting it out.
--Thanks Much, you made my day! I loved your clips... You echo my own thoughts.. I always tell people to see humor in themselves...
--Hi, Gary here...I have never in my life voted one single time and anyone who hears that, usually says that I have absolutely no right at all to ever open my mouth about anything in America. What they don't know, is that I gave 7 1/2 years of my life to the good old USA in the cold war of the late 70's and early 80's. I was a nuclear warhead specialist in Pershing and a member of the only warhead storage team that ever passed a qualification with no gigs and no deficiencies. I served in Croatia training the anti-terrorist police units, my brother was in Iran training the anti-Ayatollah soldiers, my uncle was wounded 3 times in 'Nam, my father was in Korea and France, my grand dad in Germany and Italy, and so on for the last 7 generations. So to all those asses out there who think the only way to show your patriotism is to vote, then you missed the point. Anyway, back to your dancing Bush...we're still here after all of the Bismarcks, Hitlers, Stalins, Mao se tungs, Castros, Ayatollahs, Husseins and we'll still be here after Dumb fuck Bin Laden! If we just remember that we are the only remenent of the cold war and we can still laugh at ourselves, even if we don't like it when others try to...Hey Bin Laden if you can see this, didn't mama teach you that a mosquito can't kill an elephant just because he bits it in the hemorrhoids!!!
--I grew up through World War II. We experienced Pearl Harbor from a distance but were just as horrified that someone could attack "our country." The people came together and did what needed to be done to assure that would NEVER happen again! Because of fuel rationing, we stayed home and wore heavier clothing when it was cold. Shoe rationing, food rationing, even booze was rationed. There were very few soft drinks or cigarettes available, our old cars had to be soothed and petted. We rode horses, we walked. We did not talk much because "a slip of the lip might sink a ship." But we never complained because we knew our government and our military needed our full support. WE WON AND WE WILL AGAIN WITH TOTAL DEDICATION BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. George Bush was not my choice for president but I will support him and his staff with every ounce of energy left in my body so that we will prevail over this cancerous growth on our planet.
--I voted for George W. and I am so glad that he was the man elected to be our president!!!! He is a courageous, down to earth, and just plain likable man - the best man for the job. And I LOVE the dancing Bush!!!!! I've emailed it to all my friends! I would love for George W. to see it! I think he would get a kick out of it!
--I too think the site is hilarious. Definitely not taken in an offensive way. I was in my office on Sept 11th. My office is at 195 Broadway (directly behind the now infamous Millennium Hotel) I heard the first plane come in and the explosion. We immediately evacuated. I was on Dey and Church Streets standing in-between Century 21 Dept. Store and the Millennium looking up at the largest hole in the side of the largest building. I witnessed sites and sounds that will live w/ me forever. I had to run for my life when the 2nd plane hit, I saw the initial explosion and heard the debris hit. I got out of Ground Zero safely but lost friends who did not. I will stand behind our President as we need to punish the people responsible for this cowardly act against innocent people. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!
--Please do not get rid of the Dancing Bush mini clip. It is great, it has a great beat to it, and everyone that I sent it too loves it. It does not make fun of our President. KEEP IT!!!!!!!!
--I thoroughly enjoyed this dancing Bush." You should never have to apologize or defend yourself regarding this very funny parody on Bush, who is considerably more ridiculous than any cartoonist could imagine. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Bush, the war, or anything the US gets into, the critically important part of being an American is the right to dissent and to criticize.
--I, too, voted for President Bush. Will do so again. Can,also, laugh at him & with him. Hate to think what our response would have been had Mr. Gore been elected President. I will continue my life as it was before Sept.11, except will be more aware of my surroundings.
--I think some people just need to find something to b@#$! about. Yes this is humorous....and if the Sept 11 never would have occurred these same people would be laughing there selves sick...and crabbing about something else!
--My thoughts: What a great site! I laughed so hard, not out of disrespect for the President, but because it really is funny! I forwarded it to a number of people who responded the same way. I truly appreciated your comments at the top of the page also. I totally agree with your reference to humor being a "coping mechanism". I gravitate toward the use of humor a lot, particularly in the workplace. Sometimes it is misinterpreted, but that is a whole other subject. I appreciated what you had to say about the use of humor, printed it out and have pinned it to my desk as a reminder. If people see me coming their way and smile or laugh without a word being said, as opposed to crossing to the other side of the room or putting their head down, I feel I have made a positive - and humorous - impression. Thanks for your craziness! In uncertain times, people need to lighten up and look up for peace that passes all understanding!
--I got the Bush mini clip through the e-mail, I enjoyed it and I am sure that President Bush would have a good laugh at it as well, when we lose the ability to laugh we lose the ability to learn and feel, keep doing what you are doing, you won't please all the people all the time, but neither will any of us.
--i think it is ok to show a happy pres. should have had osama's face on the floor would make it all cool like bush or not doesn't matter he is the pres. now and we have to stick together and get those bastards and not be so careful about who we kill.....they don't care who they kill. could we give them a little of their own medicine or germs?
--That was hilarious. Great to have a laugh today. What I don't understand about this terrorist business is if you are a Muslim terrorist and proud of your actions with regarding to driving planes into buildings or mailing anthrax, why don't they step up and claim responsibility if it is considered such a noble act??? If they don't consider it a noble act, why do it at all???
--RE: Dancing Bush...My thoughts regarding this mini clip any any others similar to it, are this: If you can't see the humor in this, you're dead already. The terrorists have done what they set out to do. If we can't laugh at the same things we did before 9/11, then they have killed us all. This clip is not in indecent or violent, it's good clean humor and it made me smile. No terrorist is going to take that away from me without taking my last breath with it.
--I am a widow, 71 years old, and I just loved watching G,W. dance...made me feel like dancing too! Sept 11th caused me to make a decision that my heart had already made. I am not going to worry about"what people will say" and marry the man I have fallen in love with...... That terrible tragedy made me realize that none of us are promised any more than "right now", so, I (a Caucasian)said "yes" to the man I met on the internet and have come to love (an African-American) and maybe through us, some might learn that "ALL men are created equal" has true meaning. May God bless our young people, our country, and our President ,and leader, G.W.Bush.
--i feel that what has happened has made this country more aware of the fact that we are vulnerable and that it can happen anywhere and anytime. i just cant adjust to the fact that it could happen to me my family or my friends. i say nuke them and get it over with. but then again what would that do. i tried to ask a Iranian citizen. no a USA Iranian cit. would you kill them or us if you got drafted. got in trouble for that. well i think that terrorists should pay for their crimes. but how do you get them to pay for them???????
--I'm behind your sentiment 100%. Live on just the way we have. Unless our actions have displayed hatred, discrimination, deceit...in short, so long as we behave morally and ethically; that we can truly say we are behaving toward others as we would would have them behave toward us (to paraphrase a Universal Rule), then 3 cheers for each of us and our individuality. Three cheers for freedom of speech and expression. To sum it up in he words of one of the all-time greatest...nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!
-President Bush has demonstrated the spiritual, human and political qualities that this presents times requires, I can't imagine anybody else in the White House at this moment of our nations lives. By the way, I voted for him too. The atrocity on the 911 touched me personally, not that I have a family member who died neither that was injured, but still it has been so personal to me, because It has been my country, my land, my house the one under attack AND THAT IS PERSONAL. I thank you for your web page, a good doses of laugh it is always good. IN SOME WAY YOU ARE CLEANING THE MESS TOO.
--In 1980 when I graduated from my K-9 school, I found a piece in a poem that I quoted in my yearbook. I have lived by its philosophy to this day. The poet was Robert Frost, and he said: "If you lose your power to laugh, you'll lose your power to think straight" I am still trying to locate the piece, but the words are just soooo true. 'Dancing Bush' has not only made me laugh, but it has made me think a little clearer too. Thanks!
--From a 200% admirer of Dubya, I find the dancing funny and politically correct. We are simply DONE when we can't laugh at ourselves.
--What an excellent clip! I voted for George W and would vote for him again in a heartbeat. I shudder to think we USA would be right now had the Florida vote had different results ): We have a leader! And if W were given the chance to view the clip, no doubt, he would thoroughly enjoy it. I can just see Laure and his two daughters saying, "Come on, Dad, show us those moves "live!" Thanks for the humor!
--I thought that was hilarious! Even though our country is going through a very tough time right now, it doesn't mean we can't laugh!
--Thank you for this funny clip. It helps so much these days to be able to laugh. I voted for Bush and feel he has done a great job, and I support what we are doing. My life has changed in ways I did not think it would. I have a deeper appreciation for our country and my freedom, I do not take each day lightly. I am in fear sometimes, not about myself but about my country and my children. The fear of the unknown is sometimes overwhelming. I don't know what this will mean for us but I feel that as a nation we will be changed forever.
--I think your clip is hilarious. I had great fun playing
with that. I also agree with your position that it's good to
be able to laugh at ourselves and still stand strong. I think
that in times like this, it's very easy to take in all that is
going on and become depressed. In the history of warfare, morale
has been one of the most important factors in every battle. While
the average American is not fighting on the battlefield, we are
at war against an enemy whose objective is to destroy that morale.
It is essential that we maintain a positive state of mind. With
this, we can not only stand strong behind those who are fighting
this physical battle for us, but dishearten and defeat those who
would have us live in fear. God bless America!
