The world needs him!!
Because he is the bread of all political satirists everywhere!!
Because he uses words like "decider"
Because he said that Nelson Mandela was dead!!
Because he is the but of every joke in current times
Because without him, comedy will never be the same
Because he is not technically retarded, but acts like it and therefore can make fun of him
Because he is from Texas!
Because of his accent!!
And because he is just plain funnY!!

While I understand that you are probably proposing this topic as a joke, (at least I really hope so), I still feel that some of the atrocities Bush has done on a number of occasions has been detrimental to not only American society, but the entire world, and is slightly beyond humor. And while he is funny in ways he doesn't mean in the slightest (e.g. nuc-ya-lur), I still feel that the laundry list of his mistakes or illegal actions (read: Invasion of Iraq, NSA unwarranted wiretaps, waterboarding, the Scooter Libby fiasco, continuing alliance to Saudi Arabia etc. etc.) is anything but funny.

However, I still understand what you mean by saying how he been constant fodder for political cartoonists and satirists. However, many people underestimate the ability of political satirists to take a very humorous thing about a politician and constantly mention it (Obama's dad was a goat farmer, Hillary's alienating behaviour, Bill's Lewinsky escapades). So, no, I feel that world could DEFINITELY do without Bush, and would find a great deal of other sources for political commentary.

Hahaha Im glad you noted my sarcasm.. Yes Bush has done horrible things to the US economy, the US standing as a world power, to Iraq.. etc.. He has been the worst president this country has ever seen, and definitely the stupidest. "STupid" thats why he is so good for political satirist like jon stewart, he says and does stuff that no other politician (I think hopefully) will do. Without him as president the worlds spotlight will be taken away from him as the president is the focus on the media. Without him being the decider, how will we know that mandela is dead? or that crawford is the best place to hide during a national emergency? or that the American voter is a dumbass to have voted for him.. in the 2nd election, not the 1st, Gore had the popular vote. How would know that we already won in Iraq, but we are not leaving? The world needs Bush for entairtainment, the world needs the comedians to make fun of him (something really easy i might add) so we do not realize how horrible hes made our current situation. If he does not stay in power, at least he should look for a job in comedy, I know noone else will hire him.

Both of you are entirely wrong about President Bush!! He has been one of the best presidents we have had in a long time. Since 9/11 how many attacks have there been in the U.S.?.... Thats right 0!! So since there are so many, name some of these atrocities by Bush.... Neither of you know the true facts about our president! All you know is what the liberal media tells you! So next time either of you wants to bash our president, make sure your facts come from somewhere other than the media. Besides there is no possible way that you can put all the blame on Bush. Because this is a nation of democracy, therefor we have a system of checks and balances. Which means everything that president proposes has to be approved by congress! President Bush gets criticized by people like you because he is not scared to stand for what is right no matter how many people criticize him for it! That is a true leader! One of the most immature and close minded things i have heard any of you say is that he acts retarded because he is from Texas and has an accent. That is ridiculous!!! Do you call people from different countries retarded because of their accent? NO!!! Both of you are just making up things to make him look bad. Exactly, what are these illegal actions that he has committed? There isn't any. Everything that he has done is completely justified and LEGAL. I hope both of you know that the jokes on you now, because neither of you know the truth or the real facts about George W. Bush. So maybe for now on you will take my advice and not base your opinions on what you hear in the media. And by the way John Stewart is a complete IDIOT!!!
