Bush seems like he is about to cry watching the Pope try to read this. It's sad.

The Pope is speaking right now. Most of his speech is incomprehensible--I can pick out every 3rd or 4th word, even though he's speaking in English--but I did hear him say, "resolve the situation as quickly as possible" and "United Nations."

Bush looking good. The Pope's performance is a bit shaky.

The Pope can't even turn the pages. He has an aide do it. Parkinsons is really taken a toll on him.

"The Pope's performance is a bit shaky."

I know you weren't trying to be funny.

Finally the old guy has something good to say about America......and we know of course, the President knew ahead of time what the Pope's script.

I cannot even watch it...it is so pathetic.

I am praying that President Bush is given the strength to sit through this horrible scene.

My son is still watching and asking why they do not have a screen behind the Pope with a copy of the text so people can understand what he is saying.

The Pope just said very clearly, "God Bless America" at the end of his speech.

I'm glad to know, be able to tell, from this pitiful scene, that the Pope does seem to understand what he's reading. At least he still has his mind, one can hope.

President Bush is such a good man. Why other people think he is evil I will never understand. He has a heart of gold. I don't think I could be so kind to those who hate me like Ted Kennedy hates him.

The sad thing is I remember how vigorous he was when he was first elected Pope. Parkinsons has taken a real toll on his body.
