Suppose he thought it sounded better coming from him than one of the other leaders!

If Bush is such a clown, and as stupid as liberals (sorry, progressives) claim, how is it that he still manages to trick them at every turn?

Could it be the vast right wing conspiracy manipulating his every word and move?

Bush is a clown, and we are participants at the circus. Many have paid admission, with their vote. They are currently booing the performance. Everyone else is watching TV, wondering who they can blame, as they consume themselves to death.

I am always accused of supporting GWB, no matter what. Not on this one! Fogetta bout the lousy joke.

It is hard to fathom that he admitted to the United States being a polluter, in the context of "global warming". After all, he SUPPORTS nuclear energy! He is the leader of a free people that relies on energy, from all sources. He is not about the stone age. Is he backing off his stance against the rest of the world returning to the stone age?

This was Bush's last stand at the G-8 and he blew it, by not putting it back at the other 7. To Russia and Canada he could have said, "You are getitng rich on carbon-based exports, what are you talking about?! To the EU, he could have said, "You don't have a military force that could fight itself out of a wet paper box! We had to save your ass in Yugoslavia, and we are still doing it. Grow up!" To France, specifically, he could have said, " Even though you you have failed in your militay obligations, especially the liberation of Iraq, you have provided the right example to us, by building nuclear...we have something to learn from you on this score." To Japan, the host country, he should have said, "No more humanitarian synbolisms. You, like Europe, need to get off the U.S. security tit. We have nutured you, since WWII, and you did a good job, but now we need adults to make adult decisions."

GWB, for all his stubborness (a very good trait, in tough times, btw), blew it at his last G8.

GWB, in all his ignorance, yet again showed why he is a loser the likes of which the Oval Office has never seen. Buchanan looks like a saint compared to this moron.

Hang in there. It's almost over. He's about to join the former clown, aka - Clinton.

Oops! If Bill is in there as head clown they'll have to demote GWB to pooper-scooper, or worse. Heck, they could even leave GWB on the side of the road between towns to fend for himself; The circus could do that on a trip to Louisiana; once word got out I'm sure many people would offer to help...or come to think of it, maybe not...
