Do you ever feel like the walls are closing in on you little man?
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 04:20 AM by Philosoraptor
A reporter asked the ape that question: "do you ever feel like the walls are closing in on you"? And its obvious that he does, you can see the paranoia in his ape eyes. Never has a man looked more desperate to continue a disaster in history.

He is attacked from all sides now, even from within, his yes men tell him only what he wants to hear, and like an emperor, he's pissed that things aren't going his way, and he just can't understand why everyone suddenly hates him.

Is it getting to you little man? Is the pressure finally hitting your ape brain? This is some serious shit you've gotten yourself into little man, you're ship is taking on water and you have no life preserver or raft.

I am enjoying watching you sweat and squirm and stutter, your fall will be mighty and terrible and I'm making popcorn.

--------------------------------------

Q Do you feel in some way that there is some shift going on in terms of the general support for the war in Iraq, and your strategy specifically? And do you ever feel like the walls are closing in on you in terms of support for this?

THE PRESIDENT: (Laughter.) Jim, I understand how hard it is. And I also understand the stakes. And let me go back to Senator Warner. Senator Warner said, if the plan isn't working, adjust. I agree completely. I haven't seen Baker's report yet, but one of the things I remind you of is that I don't hear those people saying get out before the job is done. They're saying, be flexible. And we are.

I believe that you -- you empower your generals to make the decisions -- the recommendations on what we do to win. You can't fight a war from Washington. In other words, you can't make the tactical decisions necessary to win. It just won't work. And I trust General Casey. I find him to be one of the really competent, decent guys.

Q But --

THE PRESIDENT: Let me finish please for a second. Plus, I couldn't hear you, but I saw you talking. Anyway, I think it's -- I value his judgment. I value his -- I know he wants to succeed and I value his objectivity. And he -- what's important for the President is when I open up that door in there and General Casey walks in, he feels confident to tell me what's on his mind, Jim -- here's what's going right, and here's what's going wrong, and here's what we're doing about it.

1. May be Baker can pull him out. He used to do it for his father
My thoughts is the agenda was to take the basic part of the society to some place Bush and Chaney wished and they have made a good start on it and even if we knew it was going on the people who hardly think about such things are finally starting to see what is going on. The trouble is no one wants to pay taxes to keep the society running like we want it to run. I do think we have set our self back many years. I always said the rest of the world would just by pass us and I also think that is what they are doing. Course they have been working to get to this place for 40 years. No one thought it would be so bad that they would get into the Bill of Rights.

2. "Plus, I couldn't hear you, but I saw you talking."
GWB's philosophy in a nutshell. He can't hear anything (none so deaf as those who will not hear), but he can see your lips moving. Of course, he doesn't own enough curiosity to ask what you said, he believes he knows and for this fantasy-flyer, belief trumps reality every single bleeping time. So he's just going to keep on answering the questions you didn't ask, making jokes about things that aren't funny, and get mad when you don't laugh.
