Presidents say the dumbest things....

OK, I am right now watching our own President Gomer meeting Prime Minister Brown, live at Camp David, and he is blathering on about the Tyrany of Poverty, Tyrany of Lack of Education, bloodthirsty ideologies we need to nip in the bud...

And he actually said (I paraphrase here, but look up the actual quote later) that we and the Brits are fighting against a bloodthirsty bunch of folks who want to drive us out of certain parts of the world where they want to impose their ideology.

Uh....You mean the Muslims who want to drive us out of THEIR part of the world so that they can have the opportunity to EXPRESS their OWN ideology THEMSELVES as opposed to submitting to the unrequested "liberation" which has resulted in an ongoing and appearantely endless occupation designed to impose OUR ideology on them at the cost of their oil resources? An occupation, I might add, which has been at a very high cost in blood and treasure to all parties involved.

Holy crap.

And before you point that stupid finger, this is not BLAME AMERICA FIRST, nor is it unreasoning hatred of George Bush. It is not hatred to realize he is an idiot with less than a thimbleful of understanding of the enormous consequences of his actions.

Did he just say, "The challenge for Gordon and me is to write a chapter, the first chapter in this struggle." We are FOUR YEARS into a war you yourself expect to last DECADES and you're only now starting to think about the FIRST CHAPTER???? And then he went into a riff of jokes about the reporter's age who asked the question.

"People who kill innocent men women and children to achieve political ends are evil." That's a quote. Does that mean he understands his own evil or that he considers that all of the people he has killed in this "ideological struggle" to be guilty?

George, you keep telling us how serious this war is, so show us how serious it is by taking it seriously and stop cracking jokes with the press corps.

We don't care that you and Tony Blair used the same toothpaste but Gordon Brown uses a different one. Nobody is laughing at your jokes but you. A very large percentage are crying.

Whenever George Bush laughs, the world laughs a little less.

Here's a nice video montage of some of the more statesman-like comments uttered by our President. Laugh or cry at it. Which you do shows a lot about who you are and how seriously you take his impact on our country.

No Archie, I'm afraid your friend has it all wrong and it's all in her head.

I asked her over a year ago to remove by blog from her blog roll and the result has been her paranoia and slander.

Well, its all very strange to me.

I do know that the internet's series of tubes can be a dangerous place to play...and misunderstandings are frequent.

I hope it isn't as bad as she thinks, and I hope you're as good as you say.

Not having anything to go by but a couple of comments and blog posts, I'll hold off on forming an opinion, though.

I appreciate that.
She's gone off the deep end on a single wedge issue.
It's no excuse for her personal insults though.
