Why we should continue to fight- Read this quote from B**
http://www.nytimes.com/2005/01/28/politics/28prexy.html...

snip
He laughed when asked about his admission on Wednesday, during a news conference, that he had not read the article in the periodical Foreign Affairs written in 2000 by Condoleezza Rice, his new secretary of state, laying out his foreign policy.
"I don't know what you think the world is like, but a lot of people don't just sit around reading Foreign Affairs," he said, chuckling. "I know this is shocking to you."

3. Ah, you give too much credit -- wasn't that upside down? I think
this is pathetic. Also, she and others probably developed "HIS" foreign policy anyway -- too stupid to come up with something himself. Watched his press conference the other day It was sickening -- Someone asked about racism and he went into this bs about how important it was to fight against. It was just one of those moments -- a single, perfect opportunity in time for someone to say, "Mr. President, you say you want to fight against racism. What is your comment on the thousands and thousands of people in minority areas of Cleveland who didn't get to vote because your campaign sent information out that the election was on Nov 3rd, or waited in long lines, etc.etc. Then point blank ask, "Will you support an election reform that requires verifed paper trail??"

14. Funny! But it just hit me - how could the neo-cons have found a
better candidate? Two word vocabulary - freedom and liberty. Doesn't want to read. Doesn't want to listen. He's perfect. They can call all the shots, develop all policies, and this idiot can be the puppet.

Boy, I would love to know the real truth about that pretzel story.

24. I'm starting to think the pretzel...
I'm starting to think the pretzel incident was a stroke, which would explain
His huge change in coherent speech. (I've seen vid clips of him talking as Gov., and he was reasonably intelligent.)
This could also give the bulge on his back duel possibilities, medical/prompter.
And would also explain his 'buddy system' approach to the 9/11 commission.
And lack of press conferences.

I better stop now before the 'naysayers' start coming. 8)

25. Hmm. Interesting Theory! I just posted about the change in
him between gov debates and prez debates. Back then he was bordering on eloquent. You are right SOMETHING happened.

5. I have started to think that this may be their "Get Out Ploy" -think
about it - rig the election to insure that the winner wants you out - unconditionally. Then, since you know that things will never work out there, you have a reason -- Well we want to stay and spread "FURREEEDOM" but they made us leave. Blame someone else ploy thaqt they are so good at

11. I think you've got their strategy, Laura PYB. This is the way to withdraw
and come out saving face. There is no doubt the b*sh administration know how to make a fraudulent election look legitimate so that's how it will be presented to the world. Look how the news media has been touting those Iraqis that are voting in the U.S. They will try to make a failed election look like a legitimate one. I hope the American people don't buy it this time.

13. Yes! I thought the same thing myself about the ex-pats. Every
time they quote the #of voters after Sunday, I am sure it will include all those votes. But, you know if we're right, think about it, surely he would then be criticized for spending all the money, and lives for no gain. Na, they'd spin around that too

16. Then we can just move the war next door to Iran?
With all the new Iran propaganda, I am sure they are looking for somewhere to take over oil reserves.

21. Interesting ! Do you think they would take it to Congress for a
vote? And if yes, do you think he could win that? I wonder how they'd spin it.

26. Looks like a White House insider agrees about Iran on b*sh hit list.
At TBRNews.org a supposed insider has updated "The Voice of the White House" on January 28. The latest update claims that whatever the outcome of the elections, b*sh will declare victory and pull out the troops despite the warnings from senior military officers of a bloody civil war. The troops will then be refreshed to prepare for future wars with Iran and Syria.

I don't know how credible this "insider" really is, but this scenario would not surprise me.

4. "They use too many big words...
...and write about countries no one has ever heard of, like those in my Coalition of the Willing alliance."

6. And a lot of people aren't competent to run the country, either.
It's one thing to have the common touch. It is another to be common. Bush is trash.

7. We're not talking about a lot of people, Mr. President. We're talking
about you. Maybe you should spend more time reading Foreign Affairs instead of clearing bush at Crawford.

9. What is even more shocking is his callous disregard for the
well-being of our country. Stupid comments like this are a perfect example!

15. Actually what is "shocking" to me is,
the ARROGANCE that bush** continues to display with regard to those who dare to question his actions or lack thereof.

23. Nah, reading Forgeign Affairs is HARD WORK!
Now we know why he continued to read the goat story on 9/11. He was fasinated with the storyline, and it held his interest.....
