BUSH-QUIZ

By Martin Petersen

[This article originally published in: Ossietzky 41/2004 is translated from the German on the World Wide Web, http://sopos.org/aufsaetzes/41a6e22f23362/1.phtml.]




The mad cowboy with the strange Christ-quirk won again. Nothing else could be expected in times of war that he started several times himself. He had an unbeatable election campaigner in Osama bin Laden who sent the most effective publicity clip of the whole campaign right before the election. Even John F. Kennedy would not have had a chance against this duo, much less John F. Kerry, the intellectual patrician with the artificial, mahogany-carved face.

For the first time in its history, Ossietzky publishes a contest (Part One) and will award a prize. Whoever carefully studies this quiz will gain priceless knowledge about the past four years under world president Bush. Excellent predictions for the next four years could result from the quiz.

If the global terrorists including those in the White House do not succeed in the next years in wiping out human civilization and culture (and this journal), the second part of our puzzle will be published in 2008 – punctually at the inauguration of Bush’s brother and successor Jeb. Before we all perish in nuclear flashes, nerve gases or deadly viruses, dear readers, here is the quiz:

1) How many reasons did president Bush cite for his war against Iraq?

2) How many of these reasons have proven true?

3) Complete this Bush quote: “Our enemies are innovative and clever like us. They are constantly searching for new possibilities of hurting our country and our people…”

4) How much tax money will a member of the Bush administration save this year on account of the taxes reduced by Bush?

5) What is the average income of a US household this year?

6) How many western Europeans like George W. Bush?

7) What is the value of the painting given to Bush for his presidential library by the Saudi ambassador?

8) What was the value of the jewelry accepted by the Bush administration in 2004 as a gift from the Saudi royal family?

9) What was written on the 27 pages of the congressional report on the attacks of September 11 that president Bush would not allow to be published?

10) Complete this Bush quote from the first television debate: “We have climbed the mighty mountain. I see the valley below and…”

11) Complete this Bush quote: “The American people need the certainty that they have a president who…”

12) When was the guaranteed US minimum wage as low as today?

13) How many Americans have lost their claim to health insurance since 2001?

14) How many foreigners were arrested in the US under suspicion of terrorism since September 11, 2001?

15) How many of them were convicted as terrorists?

16) What errors did Bush name when he was asked at a press conference about mistakes made as president?

17) How did the Bush administration react to the demands of the Red Cross not to torture prisoners in US custody?

18) Will president Bush increase the budget of national environmental protection authorities in 2005?

19) How much money did president Bush spend for the investigation of the Columbia outer-space disaster?

20) How much money did president Bush spend for investigating the attacks of September 11?

21) How great was the budget surplus that Bush took over from his predecessor?

22) How great is the deficit today?

23) What foundations of the Iraqi economic system did president Bush leave intact after the conquest of the country?

24) What did Bush answer when asked by a child in England what the White House was like?


Answers 1) 23, 2) none, 3) “…just like us”, 4) on average $42,000, 5) $42,409, 6) one out of ten, 7) a million dollars, 8) $127,600, 9) they proved the connections between the Saudi government and the alleged assassins, 10) “it is a valley of peace”, 11) “sees the world as it is”, 12) fifty years ago, 13) five million, 14) 5000, 15) not a single one, 16) generally none, 17) the administration ignored them, 18) he wants to cut that budget around $600 million, 19) $50 million, 20) $3 million, 21) $236 billion, 22) the deficit amounts to $422 billion, 23) the prohibition of unions and the prohibition of wage negotiations, 24) “the White House is white.”
