Skip to comments.One Gulp, And Bush Was Gone (Sidney Blumenthal)
Posted on 11/25/2004 7:43:59 AM PST by an amused spectator
At the dedication of the Clinton library last week in Little Rock, Karl Rove and President Bush received separate tours of the dramatic building, a glistening silver, suspended boxcar filled with light and with a panoramic view of the Arkansas river. Flung across the river stands an old railroad bridge - and to Clinton watchers, bridges represent "the bridge to the 21st century", the former president's re-election slogan in 1996...[snip]
...Then, when the presidents were announced, Bush tried to push his way past Clinton at the library door to be first in line, against the already accepted protocol for the event, as though the walk to the platform was a contest for alpha male...[snip]
...According to two eyewitnesses, Rove had shown keen interest in everything he saw, and asked questions, including about costs, obviously thinking about a future George W Bush library and legacy. "You're not such a scary guy," joked his guide. "Yes, I am," Rove replied. Walking away, he muttered deliberately and loudly: "I change constitutions, I put churches in schools ..." Thus he identified himself as more than the ruthless campaign tactician; he was also the invisible hand of power, pervasive and expansive, designing to alter the fundamental American compact...[snip]

What do you expect from a member of the SDS? This egghead fibber was once and probably still is a memebr of the hate America gang. Students for a Democratic Society hung on to gain entry into the whitehouse on the coattails of Hillary R. Clinton.
Must not be able to get attention in the USA. Sid's presence/conection with UK papers may explain the eurowacko reactions.
The Clinton library is supposed to represent a bridge, a bridge to no-where.
Convenient how the library omits Clinton's disbarment for perjury.
Cool pic. . .a keeper fur sure
Pray for W and Our Troops
What a lying asswipe.
Yeah, but when was Sid ever respectful of the truth? You can't take his descriptions as true without corroboration.
I was not happy with that speech he gave for Clintoon at the library dedication but this is funny-'a submarine could take this place out', 'one gulp and we're out of here'.
More fiction from Sid Vicious.
Na ne na na neener, we won Sidney. We won and you lo'oost, Loser!
Of course you have to act like a baby. Acting like a reasonable ADULT is an attribute you people just cannot grasp without crib notes.
(Thus, this remark is posted as if worded by a leftist.)
Egad. Where is the gagging, projectile vomitous barf alert?
"One gulp and we're out of here."
I think Bush was just reading from some of the Oval Office exhibit.
"'Am I the only one in America who likes both John Kerry and George Bush? Am I the only one who believes that both are great men, with different ideas...'
Who was it that sid this.....Bill Clinton?
Sorry, but I just couldn't watch it.
You could probably have heard the obscenities from inside if you had stood on Sid's sidewalk on November 3rd.
So did Lord Haw Haw and Axis Sally.
>this doesn'st sound like Bush<
My thoughts exactly.
And Blue-menthjol is not above gross exaggeration either.
Somehow this whole piece sounds very much like a big fat lie!
If she likes George Bush, she sure has a funny way of showing it.
