You absolutely MUST see these photos of Bush:
I should explain a little first:
When I was little my Grandpa had a book about WWII. It was basically a sort of photo-history of the war and it contained photos from both sides. It had some of the photos Hitler took as propaganda. These photos look exactly like the ones in that book:









American Presidents should not be using the same tactics as dictators in foreign countries.

2. I believe those are glasses...
though I wouldn't be surprised if it was a black twizzler.

13. "American Presidents should not be using the same tactics as dictators in
foreign countries." --Note the plural Presidents. I don't doubt there are many photos of all Presidents acting like this.

23. I should rephrase that to be more precise...
I think it is a problem for American Presidents to be treated with such fanfare akin to that awarded Kings and Queens (and dictators) at least while they are in office, and maybe even while they are alive.

There is a difference between respect and domination, and I think these types of propaganda are about dominating the American people.

25. Yeah Clinton wasn't respected around the world at all


I think it is a problem to view everything through the cynical eye of anti-Americanism when the truth is that most American Presidents have done significantly more good than harm, overall. The rest of the world manages to discern the differences, I don't know why our own left can't.

Most people just aren't feeling oppressed in this country leaving your tired "must see" dictatorship pictures trite and boring. It might be time to focus on the pain folks are really feeling, economic and a desire to end terrorism which Bush is failing at along with everything else.

22. Especially since Bush as Mussolini or Kim Jong Il is a lot closer to the
truth.

24. It's still tiresome
Face it, America has had a chance to buy it and hasn't. Time for a new tactic, that's all I'm saying. This one has just worn itself right out.

28. This isn't a tactic. I deeply troubled by the similarities between our...
President's propaganda and that of full blown dictators. You might want to rephrase this as well.

10. He thinks he looks like John Wayne when he does that.
In reality, he looks like he just shat himself, and is now trying to figure out what the smell is.

27. Bush vs Hilter
Hitler could ride a horse
Bush can fall off a bike and segway
Hitler could form a complete sentence
Bush can't
Hitler could speak German
Bush can speak Jibberish
Hitler served in combat
Bush showed up for N.G. duty sometimes.
Hitler :things are a lot easier since I'm a dicktater
Bush: things would be a lot easier if this was a dictatership
so long as I'm the dick-tater

29. What the hell is he chewing on in that last pic?
You mean to tell me that the Leader of the 'Free' World walks around the White House chewing on his own glasses? And he lets them take pictures of him like that?

I thihnk we should send some pacifiers to the White House. That is just gross.

Someone tell this guy that you wear your glasses and chew on the licorice sticks. Geez, what a moran.
