So, why don't you tell us what he said.

Excuse me, I was assuming that everyone here could read a transcript. Unless we're to discount what's written there, everything he said appears in the transcript heading this thread.

Excuse me, but you rejected somebody's summary of what Bush was saying. You called the summary incorrect. Then I asked you to tell me -- in your own words -- what the message was. Get it?

That was great! I saw his speech and was again impressed with his delivery of it and what he said in it. He covered all the bases. Great speech and his sincerity and the way he said it with conviction. Awesome! They all know this President means it.

Can someone tell me what country was offered a seat in the UN that Bush was referring too?

I am so glad he gets right to the punch....can you imagine Klinton ever being so straight forward without kissing a$$?

Whack!

Big-time "Whack" is right!

This act of terrorism was far reaching and touched people on an international scale. It effected many people from different nationalities and of different racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. The UN representatives would rather look the other way and hope some barbaric murdering terrorist, won't choose to attack their homeland next. Dream on idiots!

I assume you have retired. It need not be permanent but you are wrong here. There is such a thing known as "diplo-speak" or diplomatic language.

Diplomacy has been defined as saying "Nice doggie" while reaching for a large rock - or was it a large stick? No matter.

In diplomacy, if something is expressed in a straight-forward fashion with no other possible interpretations then its the equivalent of punching the guy in the nose and spitting on him before he gets up.

President Bush delivered a message today. He is not from Mars. We are not from Mars. He didn't say "We all need to get along." He said you're with us or you're with the terrorists. Choose your side. And stop playing games like putting the Sudan on the Human Rights Commisssion while excluding the USA from their historic seat.

Fun and games are over. This is war. Time to break things and kill our enemies. Get it? Good.

"We did not ask for this mission, yet there is honor in history's call. We have a chance the write the story or our times, a story of courage defeating cruelty and light overcoming darkness. This calling is worthy of any life and worthy of every nation.

One of the best lines in any speech in recent memory. This man is just incredible. The speech should be printed in toto in every major newspaper and read in every class room.

Agreed!!

Truly, this must be the best speech ever delivered during our lifetimes, a speech for the ages.

Looks like I will get a chance to see it in 45 minutes, but the transcript says enough already. George W. Bush has guts, and guts are exactly what are needed right now. He could have made the basic point without mentioning the Human Rights Commission. But he had another point, at this particular moment the UN has no moral authority with us. The President knows where he is going and if the UN wants to lift itself up fine, but not required for his plans.

Let me just add, I was not an early Bush supporter back a million years ago during the primaries. But I saw him at a campaign rally and fell in love. He had enormous charisma and a unique ability to understand the longings after 8 years of Clinton. From that day on I have said that he was a sleeping giant, though I could have never imagined these times. He has yet to let me down.

Sudan.

Slavery is common. They're trying to institute "Sharia" - Islamic law in the north - then they'll take it to the south. I think they've offed some million plus Christians and "animists". Same as the Taliban and Osama Bin Flattened. (I hope).

I'm not real sure where you are coming from Tunehead54. I thought that I finally saw a US president explain to these "diplomats" (who are living higher on the hog in the USA than they ever would), that the game is up. Someone is FINALLY going to call you, and, you will (really) have to put up or shut up.

If in fact, what Bush did was just "diplo-speak," and, Bush was just playing the usual game that was played by Clinton, and his ilk, for the past 20 years, I really think you are wrong. I may be naive, but I really feel that, perhaps, this time, we are past the games and diplomatic bullshit.

I still think that it was a very strong speach - not only the text, but the delivery as well. (granted - the translations to the UN morons probably lost something)

What bothered me was the lack of applause during his speech, by those at the UN is this how they do things at those meetings?

as john wayne once said " im not doing this for clapping im doing this for my country"

Sorry you misunderstood. I'm responding to TwoDees (please buy a clue) and giving you a heads up - love to go on but its time to plop a steak or two on the barbie. - Just go back through the thread - you'll see - you're right and all is well. President Bush is doing everything right. 'Course the Postal guys dropped the ball - but I think they're fixing that.

Great Speach!

Show me where Bush said what you imagine he said. Was it right before he said that the UN's "principled leadership" was needed? You're delusional.

[You called the summary incorrect]

That wasn't a summary. It was an invention from rocket's mind. Why does someone need to translate the speech for you? Are you so blinded by hero worship that you've lost your command of English?

Thanks for the reply - enjoy the steaks - (if you can ever find some Andrias sauce - Andrias Restaurant in Ill - try it - Incredible - all veggies base - wonderful flavor) I've never been there, but a marinaded steak, in this stuff, is the best you will ever have - even YOU, can't screw it up. When we lived in Mexico City, a friend in the shipping business liked it so much that he had two cases shipped thru Vera Cruz. It didn't cost him much, but it must have cost his shipping lines Thousands (Lykes - maybe thats why they went belly up!)

Have a great weekend

Every delegate at the UN General Assembly listens to earphones with translations into hundreds of languages. Probably, hard to applaud with these different delays.

Show me on this thread where I partake in "hero worship" -- you can't. You've criticized somebodies summary of Bush's speech, so I've asked you to give me your summary -- you can't. Let the record of this thread and the things that you have said on it -- stand.

Crawl back in your demented hole. You're hatred for anything Bush, or Republican, is so perverse, that you cannot see beyond anything that might be a positive for the USA.

You seem like a pathetically sad and lonely individual. Maybe you should go and find the threads about how the Democrats REALLY won the election. Sit there and fantasize.

Or, mix yourself a Vinigar and Water - Doucebag!

Have a nice lonely weekend

No, he said no such thing. It's amazing how some folks can read something in plain English and translate it into Martian. You wanted him to say what you claim he did, and you approve of him, therefore in your mind he said exactly what you wanted him to say.

Don't know what speech you heard, but stlrocket has it right!

Of course, he didn't use those exact words. Diplomacy is required. However, these were VERY VERY strong words. He was indeed putting certain countries (let's see, Iran and Lebanon, just to name a couple)on notice that we absolutely mean business.

The UN was founded by European Socialists. Wilson, the 2nd worst president we ever had, wanted us in the "League of Nations". FDR, the worst, got us in. Alger Hiss, was also involved.

Time to get out.

It would be better that Bush remove his left topsider and start slamming the podium, proclaiming somthing about the UN, history and a trash heap? Bush throws platitudes and then makes it very clear. "For every regime that sponsors terror, there is a price to be paid, and it will be paid." -- Pow!

You will find there are MANY people who voted for Bush who wish - and PRAY - that he would do just that!

And the day he does THAT, my dear, is the day I will come onto Free Republic, pop open a bottle of MUMM'S CHAMPAGNE, and raise a GLASS in his honor...because no president in my lifetime has ever had the nerve, the stomach, and the GUTS to free our beloved and sovereign nation from that rancid entanglement!

And it's about time (past it, rather) that someone did!

We need to start relying on our strength, and our sovereignty, and our freedoms...not the insidious dictates of tinpots heading up the massive FRAUD SQUAD based in New York City, who have proved time and again that they are no friends of freedom, and no friends of ours.

I can guarantee that no assistance from the U.N. comes without their attempting to put a price tag on our liberty!

Heal Heel slamming and proclamations are what you pray for -- they accomplish nothing. Leaving the UN also accomplishes nothing. The same rancid people that currently inhabit the U.N. would still live on our planet. I say you don't go about advancing freedom in the world by being an isolationist. You seek change from within.

Yes, I thought that part about the U.N. seating a nation known for human rights abuses was especially revealing regarding the President's respect for the U.N.

But I liked this little tidbit as well:

"Let us never tolerate outrageous . . . malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves, away from the guilty"

Hmmmmm?? I wonder if the President was referring to x42's little commentary the previous evening where x42 tried to blame America for 9/11, saying it was our treatment of the Indians??

Interesting??

Not only was it substantial, it was probably exactly the opposite of what algore would have spoken - how many would take the bet that within 1 minute of opening his speech, he would have been apologizing for the U.S. and trying to appease the rest of the world??
