CNN Video Clip of "Worried" Bush on Dubai Deal collapse. He's SEDATED...
To hell with the printed versions of this story...you've got to see the clip. He's either heavily sedated, suppressing the white-hot rage of a frat boy "president" who didn't get what he wanted, or BOTH.

This, apparently, is what having your ass handed to you looks and sounds like.

Go HERE:

...and look for THIS video clip:

Bush: 'UAE is an ally'
Responding to flap over the U.S. port deal with UAE, President Bush stressed the importance of keeping the state an ally. (March 10)

1. "Moderate" The UAE is Moderate???? Get the f*ck out of here.
His speech frames this thing like it still may go through.

6. Good summation...he seems on the verge of tears in the entire clip...
...but it's also mixed with the worst spoiled child you've ever seen in your life. Hard to explain, but the pic you provided captures the spirit.

:patriot:

7. Disappointing clip - did not see a sputtering incoherent rage...
...actually, he was remarkably articulate - still spouting bullshit, but articulately.

12. He was reading halfway clearly. Not a word of this talk was his.
If it had been, it would have been typically incoherant.

8. Guess he wasn't worried about the "message" an invasion sent to the ME
-Just the one that concerns this mega-business deal. Flipping hypocrit.

9. Looks and sounds like they overdid it on the meds today.
I think a zombie would show more animation.

10. Just looked at the clip
I'm opting for surpressing blinding rage here.....he could hardly keep it civil...

and yes, he is going to beat the crap out of Congress until they approve this deal or another one just like it....

It's a defeat and we all know how Bush deals with defeat......

expect wicked retaliation very shortly...

23. Yes. This is not a good time to be exuberant, complacent over our "win".
It ain't over til they're all out.

11. I turned it on in the last few minutes and
he looked as though he'd had some kind of meth injection or something compared to this portion!
Man, they've got to get his med "cocktail" worked out... :crazy:

13. I don't get it
Even if they are an ally, does that mean we have to sell whatever part of our country they want? Are we BUYING their good will? Sure sounds like it!

16. Like I said in another thread, if you want to reward them...
...give them a couple hundred McDonald's franchises, not the fucking ports system.

19. I like when he said,
"how these transactions are approved... in other words 'the process'"

What a tool.

20. Watch closely his lip jerks only ONCE -- when he says "middle east"

"... I'm concerned ... about a broader message this issue ... could send to our friends and allies around the world ...
PARTICULARLY IN THE MIDDLE EAST" LIPJERK

I've watched enough poker experts on TV talking about "tells" to know this is one... at 55 seconds in.

What's he hiding? A straight flush or a big fat bluff?

OR does he have an Ace up his sleeve???

24. The CBC news was absolutely crowing
about this latest "disaster", "debacle" and every other nasty word they could think of.
