"That is very kind of you"
k i found out what was up after reading the youtube comments:
Haha i actually thought she dissed him
I now know for a fact you have done 0 research on our current president and that of Mitt Romney. You should really stop listening to the political ads for your information.
lol @ research. That's from the youtube comments.
This vid clip is always so HILARIOUS. I suppose Mr. President should have read up on English custom. I would have likely yelled, "Here here!" And broke into a chorus of "For she's the jolly good fellow..." Just to help dude play it off LOL
It doesn't matter if you support the guy or not (I do not); when he is acting in the Office of the President on the world stage, we want him to perform well so as not to embarrass us as a nation. I supported Bush because of his policies, but his performance on the world stage was embarrassing. Not his policies, mind you, but how he personally conducted himself. Diplomacy is not a Ft Worth honky tonk. Don't act like you're sitting at the bar in Billy Bob's Texas.
On the contrary I thought Bush was an extraordinary class act. A major reason folks had such a low opinion of him is because he was hammered every single day by those in the media who wanted to keep the ****pot stirred up and stinky. If the Queen of England were called (and portrayed) as a bumbling fool every day for 1460 days, you would start to believe that she's a bumbling fool. After another 1460 days you would want to stone her as to get William in her seat pronto.
Anyway - Bush was "made" into a charicature of a president, which I think served both he and the country wrong. Never underestimate the power of suggestion.
Great job Ms Jac, now I have to clean the mtn dew off my screen from laughing so hard
See? I planted the suggestion that you laugh and it worked like a charm
Seriously though. History will evaluate President Bush as inevitably all presidents are. I think there will be a bit of redemption on Bush's behalf as we look toward his policy, as opposed to thinking him a country idiot from the great state of Texas. Slightly off-topic - I will be voting for President Obama this go around. The anti-gay policy on the right -- which is too reminiscent of America's bigotted past for my liking -- leaves a horribly foul taste on me tastebuds... I've gotta go brush my teeth now.
may I suggest a nice book to read
Probably too sensational for my liking. But dude! Apparently Hatfield wasn't one to talk about anyone. A convicted felon. Party to murder...? Guilty of embezzlement. And apparently killed himself.
Naw. I think I'll pass. Thanks for the suggestion just the same though
Not sure if you're serious, but the Royal Family has been getting backlash for decades, especially around the time of Diana's death. They're not immune to criticism, most of which has been harsher than what Bush received during his presidency.
Well... I was just making an analogy. But then again, there are those Britains who think very poorly of the Royal Family. I would suspect a lot of it has to do with how the Family has been portrayed over the decades, and not because you're intimately familiar with them enough to pass judgement...
Or...you could vote for Ron Paul, the only honest Presidential candidate. Libertarian party 2012.
Unfortunately (especially when you consider our 2 party system) a vote for Ron Paul would be a wasted vote.
Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.
Ah gotcha. Yeah, while I did vote for Bush and found him ridiculous at times, I do feel he was blamed for a lot and it isn't like he had a very easy presidency. Two wars, an attack on US soil early in his first term. And so on...
I can't believe people are still buying the 9/11 attacks. It just reflect how people are easily fooled by corporate media.
