He puts his arm into the crowd and it's gone. You can see the watch at the :47 second mark, it's gone by 1:20

:D

2. Bwa-haa-haa. I hope it was extremely expensive!!!
I also hope that the entire world finds out that while the "Emperor" was standing there letting everyone admire his "new clothes", someone ripped off his watch....

That kind of "adoration" crap just feeds perfectly into his psychopathic narcissisim. He is probably going to relive that bit every night before he goes to sleep...

Dumbass. :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke:

9. He wouldn't do that here!!!
Going out among the crowds... that would be insane in his very own country. You're right, he ought to move.

10. What say we GIVE them the SOB?
Wow...he found ONE PLACE on Earth that will put up with his dumb ass....so let's give him to them. A worthless piece of shit, a disgrace to our nation and our Constitution, a simple minded jackass who would sell his mother for a crowd that appears to like him...even if it's because he spouts crap about independence for thier Kosovo and he gives them his wrist watch. What a monkey..

and the secret service guy appears to be watching it being stripped from his wrist...

on edit: with a third look the guy glanced up for a moment- then looked down at his wrist and like "oh shit!"

13. Somebody send this clip to Olbermann.
It's freaking hilarious. It says all there is to say about the "adoration" of Bush by the crowds in that shining beacon of Democracy, Albania.

14. Somebody get it to Jon Stewart.
He said last night that Gypsies were stuffing money in the chimps pockets.

Not quite.

17. I'm not sure...
This video highlights the watch. He's wearing it when he puts his hand down, then when he lifts it again, the watch is gone. When his hand is down, he's surrounded by bodyguards. Also, watch the beginning of this clip, as Bush goes by, the man in the white shirt and then the man with the coat and sunglasses glance down at his watch.
http://news.aol.com/topnews/articles/_a/presidents-watc...

I think one of them spotted the watch, then took it off Bush's wrist before he raised his hand again. Then again, I will be listing the watch on Ebay tomorrow for anyone interested in purchasing a watch that very well may look sort of like his... :)

And yes, I could be wrong. If Tony Snow says the watch wasn't stolen, it probably was.

19. When Tony Snow denies it, it's probably a good indicator
Edited on Tue Jun-12-07 05:39 PM by CGowen

21. Watch at 3:09
You can see a hand go down on his wrist, the hand is there for a bout 2 seconds, jerks back quickly and the watch is gone

30. No, the watch is still clearly there after that, until 3:07, when he brings his arm down.
It's more clear in the link in my post. They stop the film and circle the watch, at 16 seconds, which is after the 3:09 point in the OP clip. Bush is in the motion of bringing his hand down, and the watch is there. He drops his hand to his side, when it comes up the watch is gone. If you frame-by-frame the OP clip, you can still see the watch at 3:07, after the crowd gropes at his wrist. They continue to grope after that, the rest of the clip, so I'm guessing that's some type of greeting. But the watch is on his wrist when he lowers his hand between his two bodyguards, and gone when he raises it. If someone swiped it then, they are both brave and skilled.

23. Hold on, the Chick who sitting in for Keith Olbermann just show some footage they say shows...
...what Tony Snowjob said, but the footage looked fake to me.

I was just looking at what I recorded from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and it looked nothing like what they just showed on MSNBC!

Anyone record it? (Olbermann Countdown #3)

They only showed it twice, and I'd like to see that again!

26. Yeah, that's probably even worse than letting it get stolen...
...unless it was a gift from one of his kids or something.

I really want to see that Countdown footage again, I hope they don't edit it out of the re-run at 12:00am EDT.

They might if they get enough people questioning what they just showed.

24. So if the watch wasn't stolen,
As Tony Snow would have us believe, why was it necessary that they do a close examination of the footage? Couldn't they just, you know, ask Bush to show them the watch? :evilgrin:

27. it kinda looks like he puts it in his pocket after
the watch got loose - his left hand goes down to his side - like he's shaking the watch off into his pocket.

31. Here's the link to the video of Countdown w/o Keith Olbermann that I uploaded at DailyMotion
And I also just uploaded it to the Political Video forum too (via YouTube)

Daily Motion is basically a French version of YouTube.
<http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x294pj_countdown-wo-ke... >

Note: Since Daily Motion is in France, some of the videos there are not "Office Safe"

and/or "Child Safe" by American standards.

Not criticizing, just interested.
