Pres. Bush -- Ruins Everything He Touches

6/8/2008 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was just a matter of time.

The 152-year-old Texas Governor's mansion, where Bush once rested his head, sustained serious damage as a four-alarm fire set the mansion ablaze at 2 AM CST this morning.

100 firefighters fought the blaze -- no one was home at the time of the fire.

UPDATE: Fire investigators say the blaze was intentionally set, but there's no indication it was intended as a direct threat to Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

"Does President Bush ruin everything he touches?"

I don't like Bush, but can you people think of anything clever?

Not like he hasen't been there for almost 8 years, and someone else is responsible OBVIOUSLY.

This would be like telling Nicole Ritchie to watch out for traffic with her baby because of a year and a half old self DUI charge. Ohh wait, you actually did that, of course you would. Why would someone actually try and use the brain they were given and write anything that actually has any sense....

TMZ sucks. You've shown disrespect for the President, and that shows how low you are. Guess you want a terrorist like Obama to be President. Great, then your entire family will die!!!!! Dumbasses.

AFTER READING THE NEANDERTHAL"S PREVIOUS COMMENTS AND THEIR CAPTION ON THE PICTURE I AM AMAZED THAT THEY THINK OUR PRESIDENT (BUSH AS THEY CALL HIM) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR INABILITY TO COPE WITH THE WORLD AROUND THEM. THE RESULT OF THIS DISGRACEFUL DISPLAY OF CHILDISH WHINING HAS CAUSED ME TO BLOCK THIS SITE FROM MY COMPUTER FOREVER.

This might possibly be the stupidest post I've ever seen TMZ post. I presume if there is an earthquake in California, you'll blame Bush because he was in California one time. Or maybe blame Bill Clinton because he was in California once. Or how about blaming Obama because he was in California once too. Oh wait. It must be Reagan's fault because he was actually FROM California.

14. Seriously, TMZ, you should put a notice on the top of your main page informing people that your site is that of entertainment and dark humor for those of us who have to deal with reality of a craziee world on a daily basis as adults and need a good laugh. We have that right, just like those that complain have the right to, oh lets see....NOT COME ONTO THE WEBSITE. Wow, I amaze myself with my intelligence. It's simple people, if you dont like what's written here, then go to CBS or ABC sites and continue your anal attitudes there...leave us adults to play.

That road runs both ways. If you can't bear to see TMZ bashed, don't read the comments or go to a different site.

21, you are a MORON! Gas prices are through the roof because tree-hugging, liberal Democrats have PREVENTED Republicans from drilling for our own oil. You ignorant morons shouldn't be allowed to post. The housing crisis is a result of loans being granted to people who couldn't afford them at the behest of DEMOCRATS in congress who cried that minorities and the poor were being discriminated against. You, and the Obama nut-huggers, are all idiots! And lastly, 4,000 American HEROS gave their lives fighting against evil radical Islam...to make MORONS like you safe. Obama WILL destroy this country. America doesn't need a second Carter term. You remember Carter...the worst "President" in the history of the U.S.

My name says it all.You just keep believing the garbage fox news feeds you.Open your eyes,every aspect of our country is on the wrong track,and our president could care less .As long as his "have more" people are doing good,he doesn't give a damn about the poor or middle class.What happened with the bush tax cuts creating jobs and stimulating the economy?Looks to me they did the exact opposite.I helped get Santorum out in 2006,and i'll help get Obama in for 08. OBAMA 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh! I get it...we're supposed to laugh and think it's funny because yet AGAIN another lame person makes a Bush joke and blames him for something COMPLETELY unrelated to him or in his control. This is why the news media sucks. They love to create this propaganda about people and feed on it like rabid dogs. Just like the Obama frenzy...Thank God for Fox news.

This is really sad-this is a beautiful old Greek Revival style house that is 150 years old & has an historic designation. It's absolutely gorgeous. For anyone to insinuate it has anything to do with the President is a total dumbass. I can't believe TMZ has sunk so low. All you other dumbasses taking cheap shots at the President because of this story ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

The TMZ "Bash Bush at any Cost" campaign is really getting tired. Bush hasn't lived in the mansion since 1999 - that's 9 years for those of you who can't do the math. Could the TMZ caption writers PLEASE grow up and make even a slight attempt to be more original. You are getting old, tired and boring!

Democrats are evil    

And the hate for George Bush continues. Democrats have an endless supply of it because it is all they know. From election day thru today, not one peaceful comment has exited the trap that they call their mouth. Negative, hateful people that want power and when they don't have it, the hate overflows like water over a dam. Of course they hate the church. It's because they believe in evil. And you can't believe in a God and love to hate at the same time. Read the comments on this blog. Hate is everywhere. And we all know what embraces hate when you die. Good luck to that.
