    Default We are so used to it, this is normal...

    The mainstreem media quoted Bush in his recient press conference as having said...

    ""I know there's a lot of, here in Washington people are trying to — stimulus package two — and all that stuff,” Bush told reporters."

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23394284/

    That is a direct quote is a news story about the possability of recession. Noone even noted that what the guy said was gibberish!

    I think we can clearly determine that without their pointing it out.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    Beating a dead horse doesn't mean anything to you, does it?

    Bush is topspin

    Seriously how can anyone that voted for Bush be proud of their vote ?

    And worse yet still support the guy.

    I am still amazed daily that this guy won the 2004 election, and came close enough to claim victory in 2000.

    The story used this quote as if the president achually said something.

    Read: I have nothing better to do than talk about GW Bush, a president that is almost universally hated, as if it is a bold and/or new thing to do. Also, I am a left-winger and so will never be able to admit that Bush won the election in 2000, even though at this point it is irrelevant as not even Al Gore has invented a time machine yet.

    Well, to be fair he did finish with something that actually could be comprehended:

    "I know there's a lot of, here in Washington people are trying to — stimulus package two — and all that stuff,” Bush told reporters. “Why don't we let stimulus package one, which seemed like a good idea at the time, have a chance to kick in?"

    30% still support him... 52% of voters voted for him. Its relevant, because we need to find out how we got into this mess.

    I can tell you how we got into this mess, as can the rest of America. Al Gore having the charisma of a rotting log allowed Bush to get into the White House, where he managed to stay because of fear-mongering in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

    It isn't much of a mystery dude, even though Bush-chasing (not the good kind) is becoming an obsession of yours.

    How dare you talk about the President on a political message board! You idiot! Why don't you try talking about Chaucer?

    So we got here because enough American voters vote based on Carisma, thats embarrassing. And 9-11 made me want someone new worse than not having had 9-11!

    Darla seems to be obsessed with me. It's a mastubatory thing, I understand...she chases me around trying to insult my posts (ironically without reading any of them) while keeping one hand on the keyboard and one firmly up her ass.

    I know that you have trouble accepting this Jarod (all of your posts indicate you do): your opinion does not reflect what America wants. I know that the truth can hurt, but you can't keep basing what happens in America on what you wanted to happen.
