I always like it when Bush “leaves all options on the table”. However, in the end, I think this is gesture for paper tigers. I’d be fine if Bush decided to participate in this kind of street theater but I would certainly hope there would be a plan for some sort of follow up action the next day. Otherwise it would be about as useful as putting a “Free Tibet” bumper sticker on your car. A fine thought but is anyone really willing to make the sacrifices necessary to Free Tibet? After watching America’s short attention span with respect to fighting Islamic fundamentalism, I sincerely doubt anyone has the stones to take on China.

I agree very much with your post. I will give the President the benefit of the doubt. He mystifies me when it comes to the borders and illegal aliens. He frustrated me in his slowness to change speed in Iraq. He mystifies me on Kosovo. But he is steady in what he does and keeps his word. I hope he gives Hu Jintao an earful and has a strong hand to play behind the scenes. I don't know what it could be but I will wait and hope he has better irons in the fire than the suggested boycott.
Hillary is a sorry POS who only says the right thing on the rare occasion that it lines up with her personal ambitions. (spit)
