My understanding is the networks usually ask committee heads to appear, so Pence and others were rarely given a chance. I agree with what you said, but I believe the GOP leadership let the base down as much as the Bush White House.

Locally, we hear more from Tom Tancredo here now than we ever did when he was a US Representative. It’s as though the media just found out he lives here and has opinions worth reporting on.

It is so easy to be Arianna. She lives in a world where she just makes up her own facts and then extrapolates from there.

Kind of like VandenHuevel.

The biased left-wing media is the greatest enemy to our country.

Worse than terrorists or activist leftist judges, I think.

Because they keep the masses ignorant of the truth.

Fox News just had a segment with FR’s own, LS-—

LS was saying that he has read many of the history textbooks being used right now, in elementary, secondary, and university history classes.

He said they are filled with inaccuracies, and out right LIES about what actually happened.

He said in one book the “war on terror” is already being taught “wrong”.

All that means that we may all, like Pres. Bush, hope that “history” will set the record straight and be much more kind to him, but, if we are counting on our next generations that isn’t going to happen.

Great catch snugs.

One of the chatting heads on MTP ranted on about how zero had to go in and "change the venue for the US in Europe after 8 years of GW of words to that effect, insinuating we were so hated by the Europeans or Bush did such a lousy job of representing us.

Guess they all forgot about Condi and others who did "anything" but screw things up like hillary is sure to do!!

Truth is we were respected. Now we are becoming a laughing stock.

We can’t prove a negative. What mtnwmn said coincides with my memory as well.

It’s kind of like Obama changing from promising to create millions jobs to saving or creating millions of jobs. Nobody can quantify how many jobs are “saved.” But I would bet Obama and his gang will make that claim.

One thing GW could have done but didn't is to fight the DBM/DNC much harder than he did.

They created lie after lie about him and his adm. and he seldom came out with both guns blazing. Big mistake IMHO. We would all have supported him if he had.

My, my, not one word about Barky prostrating himself before King Abdullah. Indicates clearly just how bad it really was.

They cannot, however, prevent people from finding out about it. It is all over the internet.

Morning AB, All.

Just got back from mass...Palm Sunday.

As always, thanks for doing this thread AB and trust y’all had a good week and have a fine holy week upcoming.

Going into bedroom to eat lunch and hope to get caught up by reading the thread.

Meanwhile, about Notre Dame...how about they let the President speak...he is the President of the U.S. after all and his speech time would be because of that alone.

But DON’T give the guy that honorary diploma. He most certainly does NOT deserve it, he is against everything the Catholic church most holy.

Why can’t they do this compromise as I suggest above?

Yes, that picture (and the video, which is FAR more damning) is all over the internet.

No thanks to Google, though, as yesterday I search "Obama bow Saudi king" and got pictures of George Bush leading the elderly former king by the hand, single pics of Obama, or single pics of the king.

That in itself is a scandal.

I’m convinced Obama is nothing more than a walking PR person, trying to sell the ideas of those who are telling him what to say and do.

There is no way a community organizer, with an affirmative action law degree from Harvard, knows economics, history, civics or anything else of how the world works. He has his idealism but no clue what that means or what will happen if he accomplishes what he thinks he wants to do.


Comrade Obamsky is merely a front man, no doubt about it. Comrade Ayers wrote his book, Comrade Axelrod writes his speeches, Comrade Emanuel carves out the tactics, Comrade Bernadine created the agenda, Comrade (and reverend) Wright gave him his “street cred,” the MSM (aka Pravda) provides him legitmacy and “cover,” — and all he need do is keep clean, try not to bow so often to the Muslim king and when things get tough allow the talk to focus on Comrade Michelle’s latest decadent capitalist ensemble.

Imagine that the movie “Dave” was called “Vladimir” instead....

And how long would it have taken them to start ridiculing Bush for trying to "rewrite" history?

Picture this: A 10 second bite of Bush promoting one of his successes, followed by a 5 minute report beginning with the phrase, "In a desperate attempt to deceive the American people and selfishly save what's left of his failed presidency...."

Now picture it on all 5 anti-Bush networks every night for 2,000 consecutive nights.

You gotta admit obama,totus, Axelrod et.all are super slick.

They design every speech to accurately reflect what each audience wants to hear!

Bearing that in mind makes everything really flow. You can almost predict what they will say.

In front of Europeans just say the US sucks, in front of unions say mgmt. sucks an you will protect them. In response to sagging numbers just say what the audience wants to hear.

None of it ever has to be true only what the audience wants to hear at the time.!!

Works for a while.

Those of us who served in Vietnam, whether conscripts or volunteers, continue to be 'un-personed' by the media and liberal America as thoroughly as may be. Other than the occasional conservative, such as those who post here, only the various services remember us at all. Adm. Elmo Zumwalt, Col. Robin Olds, the 5th SOG, the Blackhorse, 1st Air Cav, the Marines in Hue, etc, etc; countless others are essentially either parodies in a movie or simply forgotten.

Except by ourselves. And maybe that's enough.

Don't let that happen to GW-I and -II guys. Or the GWOT.

Just don't.

Very slick,doing what the audience wants to hear, see. They(Eurpoeans) love it when the US bows to anyone,doesn't really matter who.

Slick move by Barky. He knows GW had an excellent relationship with the Saudis an it prevented oil shortages on a world wide basis more than once. So what does he do, take a bow.Slick a-hole.

You can only do that if you hate America,and IMHO he does.

Nope, he’s just as frustrated as the rest of us.

(Although he can talk/write about something that would only be an emotional satisfaction, while the action of shutting the [BLEEP]s off and breaking them financially might be more time-consuming but just as nice as kicking their arses all around the block. Does anybody really even care about what Dan Rather is doing anymore?)

This is beyond belief I cannot believe that the media saw the same photos as we did daily on the dose read the same press releases and press conferences on the White House website that we did during GWB Presidency. Yes there were differences in policy etc but it was evident that on a personal level many of the European leaders were more than happy to speak to President George W Bush, I especially think of some of the photos of him with Angela Merkel.

I remember also that Merkel's husband accompanied her on at least 2 visits that GWB made to Germany including a hog roast and I think may have even come to States. Why do I mention this because he very rarely ever seen in public with Merkel as it is rumoured their political views are not similar and that he is not that much of a political animal so for him to be with her during GWB's visits indicate this was considered a special event.

Found it yes her husband did accompany her to the States and in fact they visited President Bush's own raunch in Crawford
