Bush Says, “Cool Off Rhetoric on Court”

President Bush told USA Today that the people who are mobilizing support for a fight over Justice O'Connor's replacement should "tone down the heated rhetoric." “Al Gonzales is a great friend of mine," Bush said. “When a friend gets attacked, I don't like it," he added. On September 18, 2001, Bush vowed to get Osama bin Laden. "I want justice. And there's an old poster out West that says, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,' the President said. On July 2, 2003 Bush said American troops under fire in Iraq aren't about to pull out. “Bring them on,” he said of those who might attack U.S. forces. On May 31, 2003 the Washington Post reported that President Bush told television viewers in Poland that "U.S. forces in Iraq have found the weapons of mass destruction that were the United States' primary justification for going to war.” Bush added, "And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong. We found them,” he said. On March 24, 2004 at the annual black-tie dinner for the Radio and Television Correspondents Association, Bush did a stand-up routine where he looked for WMD's. “Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere.” He was shown looking under papers, behind drapes, under his desk. “Nope, no weapons over there…Maybe under here?” he asked grinning. On January 28, 2005, Bush said in a speech at Fort Bragg, “Like most Americans, I see the images of violence and bloodshed. Every picture is horrifying, and the suffering is real. Amid all this violence, I know Americans ask the question: Is the sacrifice worth it? It is worth it, and it is vital to the future security of our country,” he said. Mr. Ratfucker suggests the next time Mr. Bush is tempted to lecture anyone, anywhere or anytime on toning down rhetoric, he find a quiet place to sit down and meditate, using an old Zen mantra: Owah tashum kyam…owah tashum kyam…owah tashum kyam….

Thank you for reminding us of the boy-king My Pet Goat response to tragedies. What a shame we don't have a real president only a sadistic dictator Cheney - Read what he did to Cathy O'Brien in THE TRANCE-FORMATION OF AMERICA.

I did not watch the Ft. Bragg speech and am trying to get over my disgust to go to the White House site to read if he really said what a Democratic Underground poster stated on a thread during the Ft. Bragg speech that asked, "Did Bush just say we were in World War Three."

I saw an exerpt that quoted that and wonder why the news media did not have banner headlines PRESIDENT BUSH SAYS WE ARE IN WORLD WAR III - not really I know why they didn't focus on this.

All of Bush's proof that he is no real president should be emphasized but don't let Cheney and his atrocities hide in the shaddows.

I feel so bad for Britain and the Bush Mafia warning not to release any more Downing Street memos or tell the truth about the Bush Criminal Regime.

Visit both the UK and America's White Rose blog community to find out about the Patriot Act aka Martial Law that has already been passed sneakily piecemeal as it was in America and the British press has been under attack for quite a while from the powers that be in the British establishment.
