Bush's Staged Photo Op/Conversation with the Troops - Part 2

In case you missed it today, EVERYONE has been buzzing about the staged 'conversation' between bush and the troops today. carried live as if he was actually having a public meeting with the troops, NPR has the digs on the REHERSAL of this live conversation. I'm glad our president uses men and women risking their lives as his own PR tool. god knows he has nothing better to do in leading this country.

This guy governs by living in a bubble of yes-men.

Note to Bush: if you want your poll numbers to go up, DO YOUR DAMN JOB! quit putting your army hat on and making the staff refer to you as a 'war president'. pretend time is over. people are dying, and you're doing THIS?

my favorite quote:

"If he gives us a question that's not something that we've scripted, Captain Kennedy, you're gonna have that mic, and that's your chance to impress us all."

yeah.

Its like an episode of Crossing Over. I want political discussion back like it was in the old days. I want Lincoln going from town to town harassing the folks that just listening to Douglas until Douglas gives in and they start debating. I want it like how things are in England where random guy on the street can shout out any old question and the President/PM has to answer or be ridiculed in the press. I want open debate, the marketplace of ideas. I want JSMill to be brought back to life and kick everybody's ass.
