Clearing cedar in a thunderstorm (georgie)
Sorry about a non-Saddam post, but I have cleared plenty of cedar in that part of Texas and you never do it when the ground is wet unless you have a death wish. Much less during a thunderstorm (the lightning factor). Everything about the boy is bullshit.
And then there is the matter of the chickenshit being driven a couple of hundred yards to the shelter.
Who the hell would put a tornado shelter so far from the house unless he wanted to play Stryker Force Commander?

Bush sheltered during tornado alert
By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer
Fri Dec 29

President Bush and first lady Laura Bush were moved to an armored vehicle on their ranch Friday when a tornado warning was issued in central Texas, the White House said.

The vehicle was driven to a tornado shelter on the ranch at 1:30 p.m. CST, and the president, Mrs. Bush and their two Scottish terriers, Barney and Miss Beazley, sat inside until the weather cleared, deputy White House press secretary Scott Stanzel said. They were never moved into the shelter, he said. The shelter is a few hundred yards away from the president's house on the ranch.

"The was in the vehicle for about 10 minutes and then he went back to the house," Stanzel said, adding that other members of the staff at the ranch were sheltered as well.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch at 12:40 p.m. CST. This was scheduled to last until 8:30 p.m. At 3:47 p.m. the watch was upgraded this to a tornado warning, which lasted for less than an hour.

The rush to the tornado shelter interrupted Bush's day at the ranch where he cleared some cedar and was kept abreast of plans to execute Saddam Hussein in Iraq. The windy day of rain and thunder began with morning calls to wish him a happy new year from outgoing U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

1. Errr, excuse me, but what happened to Cheney, Gates, Rice, Pace??
I thought this was a werkin' vacation (heh-heh). That's the word that came down yesterday, they were werkin' hard, at least 4 hours a day, to resolve the dilemma (for them) that is Iraq, and he was far too busy to attend Ford's funeral.
He's back to clearing brush? :banghead:

May a conscious from somewhere invade your brainpan and cause massive tactile hallucinations for the rest of your lily-livered, pampered Peruvian life.

4. exactly!
What kind of idiot puts a storm shelter so far away from the house? Didn't anybody tell the pretend cowboy that you're not supposed to drive during a tornado warning? If a tornado can lift a cow, it can lift an armored car.

Just proves the faker ain't no Texan and never was.
