Anybody in There?

The recently foiled terrorist attacks and the escalating violence in Iraq have given a cringing world another blast of the president’s vapid sound-bite foreign relations analysis that sounds more like the comments of a jilted lover than the leader of the world’s most powerful nation. Comments like “They hate us because they hate our freedom” and “they don’t appreciate what we are doing for them” may make the world cringe but on the bright side it also provides fodder for The Daily Show. See last night’s segment inspired by a recent New York Times piece that reported that President Bush "expressed frustration that Iraqis had not come to appreciate the sacrifices that the United States has made in Iraq."

And real life can be even funnier than make believe when it comes to W. (even if it is funny scary). Today Bob Harris posts a cleaned up photo of Bush’s press conference notes that further confirm that there is not a lot going on in there.
