U.S. President George W. Bush talks after joining Marine and Navy personnel for lunch at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California, April 23, 2006. President Bush on Sunday called Iraqi leaders, including the new prime minister-designate, to congratulate them on moving to form a unity government, saying they had 'awesome responsibilities' to the Iraqi people.

1. Those troops look thrilled. (not)
they look like they'd rather get a root canal with no novocaine.

3. The second young man on the left looks terrified.
Almost as if he's thinking.... "THIS is who's making the decisions regarding my life and death? I'M SCREWED!"

8. i saw this on the news. these troops barely managed to clap
and some just flat out did not. it was the wussiest response when bush would do his cheers. bush says, the only way we lose the war is if we give up,.... and i am not going to give up. he sat waiting for applause, and it was just weak. and i know our military is not going ot give up, bush says sounding like a friggin cheerleader and the applause were even weaker. literally people behind barely applauded or just did not even applause

i would assume they would get people that support bush, but these troops didnt even a little look like it. i told hubby watching it, look, that is just horrible, look at the soldiers, and he say i know. totally agreed

5. We noticed....
that when * walked through the mess hall at this base he reached out to shake a couple of soldiers hands who did not take him up on his offer! These soldiers have figured it out.

11. Oh Please....
there's a great article by John Dean on WWW.rense.com about presidential personalities relating to how they handle the presidency.....let's just say that Dean proposes Bush is very active but has negative consequences to his actions.....* doesn't give a damn for the people-at-large....IMHOP

12. Dang. That is significant. For jarheads to do that, it's almost
open mutiny. A small thing indeed, but a big indication of the trouble he's in.

13. Ben Was Supposed To Call Yesterday But Could Not
He talked with Ray after 1 this morning our time (we are 9+ PST) and said he would call tonight and give us all the dirt. I will post after he calls me tonight! I was so sad yesterday, I waited up and could not figure out why Ben didn't call. Now I know...it was the fucker hurting me and EVERYONE alive...AGAIN!

Bush is an asshole and anyone supporting him is carrying his stink for him. These Marines just got back from Iraq less than a month ago. They have no respect for the Blivet Boy.
