MORE BUSH DOG AND PONY SHOWS
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
When Bush is in a corner, he prays to Geronimo's skull and asks Chang the destroyer of the Shaolin Temple for help. Or he calls on grandpa. "What would Hitler do?" he cries to his patri-ghostie.
"Mein sohn, du musst treffen mit den Truppen," said grandpa.
So Bush, being a rank coward, decided to do what Hitler did, visit quiesent troops, in this case, officers under orders, and have a "frank" talk which wasn't frank at all but tom, tricky dicky and harried.
The CIA Washington Post:
President Bush, speaking to U.S. troops in Iraq today ahead of Saturday's referendum on a new constitution, thanked them for "being a part of this global war" and vowed to press on until "total victory" over an enemy he described as ruthless and cold-blooded.Der Voekischer Peepenschnooper Washington Poster covered this well. They hinted that maybe some of the dribble was rehashed trash.
In a videoconference with 10 U.S. military personnel and one Iraqi soldier, Bush said the referendum vote must be protected to help defeat the "backward, dark philosophy" of the insurgents and lay "the foundation for peace."
But other, less Sieg heiliger media were less impressed and they let the truth slip out knowing that more than half of America wants Bush swinging from the streelights: From Associated Press:
"I'm going to ask somebody to grab those two water bottles against the wall and move them out of the camera shot for me," Barber said.Well, he certainly didn't promise them he would push the Soviets out of Berlin's suburbs but then, al Qaeda is attacking Russia's suburbs so we better not dwell on this war on terror which we seem to be losing since the other side refuses to be even slightly frightened, much less, terrified.
A brief rehearsal ensued.
"OK, so let's just walk through this," Barber said. "Captain Kennedy, you answer the first question and you hand the mike to whom?"
"Captain Smith," Kennedy said.
"Captain. Smith? You take the mike and you hand it to whom?" she asked.
"Captain Kennedy," the soldier replied.
And so it went.
"If the question comes up about partnering — how often do we train with the Iraqi military — who does he go to?" Barber asked.
"That's going to go to Captain Pratt," one of the soldiers said.
"And then if we're going to talk a little bit about the folks in Tikrit — the hometown — and how they're handling the political process, who are we going to give that to?" she asked.
Before he took questions, Bush thanked the soldiers for serving and reassured them that the U.S. would not pull out of Iraq until the mission was complete.
"So long as I'm the president, we're never going to back down, we're never going to give in, we'll never accept anything less than total victory," Bush said.
You've got tremendous support here at home," Bush said.Um, wacko bubble boy, you mistated that by a word. There is tremendous support to BRING them home. Kapeesh?
Well, Bush is hard of hearing and feeling. This is one man that won't feel our pain. We won't feel his pain, either, when it comes down to that.
