For All Of The GWB "Misunderestimators"

Tue Jul 24, 2001 10:17 am

ROME, Italy -- U.S. President George W. Bush will travel to Kosovo on Tuesday to visit U.S. troops stationed in the troubled province.

Bush will complete his six-day European visit by visiting Camp Bondsteel near Pristina, where some 5,000 U.S. troops serving with the NATO-led KFOR force are stationed.

U.N. and KFOR commanders are expected to brief him before he addresses the troops on the camp's parade grounds and dines with them.

The KFOR base is around 40 kilometres (25 miles) southeast of Pristina, capital of the southern Yugoslav province which is currently under U.N. administration after the Kosovo war of 1999.

Bush also plans to meet Hans Haekkerrup, the U.N. administrator of Kosovo, for talks on progress in solving the province's problems, The Associated Press reported.

Amid questions over whether Bush would pull U.S. troops out of the Balkans, he has assured Europeans that the United States will continue to work side by side with international peacekeepers where needed.

During his visit to Rome on Monday, Bush said during a news conference that he has assured Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi: "America came into the Balkans with our friends, and we will leave with our friends."

The U.S. president received strong backing from Berlusconi over his plans to develop a missile defence shield. The Italian premier said other European governments should also recognise the importance of the national missile defence (NMD) proposal.

He urged Russia to support the plan, saying he agreed that there was a need for new responses to military threats facing the United States, Europe and even Russia required new responses.

He said: "We will always be next to the United States in order to take part in this discussion, going well beyond the attitudes of certain European states which still today have not in my opinion understood how the world has changed and how we should start worrying about the future."


Bush has met with resistance from America's other European allies and Russia and China over the proposals, which opponents say would threaten the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty.

The two leaders earlier lunched privately at a palazzo in the Villa Doria Pamphili park in Rome.

Bush had earlier met Pope John Paul II and he said he would take the pope's rejection of stem cell research using embryos into consideration when he decides whether to allow funding for the controversial practice.

"He's sent a consistent word throughout the Church, and throughout society, that we ought to take into account the preciousness of life," Bush said at the press conference with Berlusconi.

John Paul II had addressed the issue of stem cell research using embryos at a press conference after the 35-minute meeting with Bush at the pontiff's summer home, Castel Gandolfo, south of the Italian capital

"A free and virtuous society which America aspires to be must reject practices that devalue and violate human life at any stage of conception until natural death," the pope said.

"In defending the right to life ... America can show the world ... (that) man remains the master not the product of his technology."

Bush in turn expressed his admiration for the pontiff. "Where there is oppression you speak of human rights, where there is poverty you speak of justice and hope," he said.

"Where there is ancient hatred, you defend and display a tolerance that reaches beyond every boundary of race and nation and belief."

Later, at the press conference with Berlusconi, Bush said that John Paul had not raised stem cell research during their private session, but had instead focused on foreign policy and Bush's meeting on Sunday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But he added that his decision on whether to grant federal funding for embryonic stem cell research is the most difficult choice he has to make, because of the dilemma between moral issues of creating human embryos to produce stem cells and the promise from doctors and scientists the research will save human lives.

He expressed his respect for the pope's stand, saying: "I frankly do not care what the political polls say. I do care about the opinions of people, particularly someone as profound as the Holy Father."

The trip to Rome was the third stop on Bush's tour following a visit to London and his visit to the G8 summit in Genoa, Italy. He is accompanied by his wife, First Lady Laura Bush, and their daughter Barbara, 19.

While not a huge supporter of Bush, the man is incredibly intelligent. People just don't recognize the fact because their opinions are clouded with anti-Bush propaganda and they cannot see the truly smart things he has done.

Wankerwrench, gee, and here I thought this was the land of the free. A land where religion wasn't forced on you. A land where the government couldn't control your life. A land where faith is, rightfully so, a personal matter. Then Tush goes and lights a fire under the Constitution. No, no, I'm afraid this DOESN'T represent the American people. It's represents YOU. And YOU do not represent the American people. YOU are but a small fraction of it, and YOU deserve no more priority than anyone else. Sorry to pop your ego, but that's how it is... deal with it.

FWIW, those whom I know who are acquainted with the president assure me that, while he may not be the best extemporaneous speaker, he is not dense, dull, stupid or even slow.

As governor of Texas, my fair (HOT) state, he was able to garner a level of cooperation in a legislative process that is, by any measure, laughable; and in the process, he garnered a lot of respect across party lines.

You will not see President Bush trying to force religion on anyone (and no evidence extant in this thread has shown anything of that sort), but you'll not likely see him abandoning the moral and ethical principles which he espouses, often called "Judeo-Christian principles," though scarcely limited thusly.

Again, an open mind before an open mouth may offer the chance for the occasional surprise. If you still disagree, you can do so possessed of facts rather than sensational hyperbole.

Zach, saying Mr. Bush is "incredibly intelligent" is like saying you're incredibly open-minded. It makes for good talk, but neither is very true.

And if I were a supporter of Bush, I woulndn't be too thrilled with the strong backing of Italy. That really means a lot coming from one of the most unstable democracies in Europe, with it's "Government-of-The-Month Club".

Bush is incredibly intelligent.
Jesus would be proud of the Christian Right.
There is no separation of Church and State in the US.
The US constitution was based on the teachings of the old testament (Thats why lynching and slavery were such venerable constitutional rights).
Justice Scalia is a paragon of Christian tolerance, and Jesus would be proud of him too.
Bill Clinton never had sex with "that" woman.
The Chinese have a wonderful human rights track record.....and....
The MD-11 was a big success.

For all of the people who say Bush is dumb, I ask, how is he dumb?

Is it because:

1. He didn't know the answer to those questions, even though Clinton admitted he didn't know the answer to them either.

2. He has a B.A. from Yale and an MBA from Harvard, which makes him the first president in history to have an MBA.

3. He occasionally slips up his words, just like every other world leader.

Superfly-

He applied for the Law School there and didn't get in.

If you want to talk about connections, how did Clinton get out of Vietnam, and how did he become a Rhodes Scholar? Many people believe these things happened because Clinton had help from high level politicians in his area.

Also, don't forget Geoge Bush Sr. was the son of a very powerful senator. After he graduated from High school he could've gone to college, but instead he enlisted in the Navy and became a Torpedo bomber pilot in WWII. IMHO that there says something about someone's character, unlike Clinton.

How did Bush Sr. earn his achievements with a very powerful senator as his dad and Bush Jr. not earn his achievements with a president for a dad?

Don't forget Bush Jr. was pretty old when his dad became president.

Both of them, Bush Sr. and Jr. didn't have an "easy life". They both lost key elections, had tough times in business, etc.. You make it seem as they never worked a day in their life.

US Congressman
Headed the Republican National Committee,
Headed the CIA,
Two terms as Vice-President before he becamePresident.


His little boy:
Drunk his ass off
Snorted cocaine
Lived off of daddies money
Started a business, it failed
Got elected Gov. of Texas on the gun issue
Was funneled with tons of money to run for President
US Supreme Court assured election

Please let's keep this based on facts, otherwise Johan will delete it.

>>Oh gee, did they starve?

How would you like it if your sister or daughter died from leukemia? To me life is way more important than power bills.

Bush Sr.
Lost congressional races

Bush Jr.
Made a hefty profit on his investment in the Texas Rangers

Volunteered to help city kids
Became a USAF Fighter pilot



I really like to read biographies, and I read the ones on Bush Sr., Jr., and Clinton. It is interesting what kinds of lives these people have had. It's far from the ones the media shows on tv. They weren't perfect before they became president but they weren't bad either.

Did you know:
Clinton got fired from helping on a senator's campaign because he kept getting parking tickets when he drove the senator around?

He helped lock his physics in the closet?

Bush sucks and this country was built on the basis of separation of religion and state. Twottertwrench, don't twist history just because it was not in favor of religious fundamentalists like you. Gore sucks too and while Bush is just plain dumb, Gore can't talk. Clinton had some issues that he shouldn't have had.

Then you said he got his Ivy League education only because of his dad.

And then you implied that they live a rich, easy life.


I was pointing out that they lost their sister and daughter to Leukemia, so their life isn't that "easy" as you said it was.

Excuse me gentlemen. I don't care what grievences you have with where these guys got where they are, but you can't tell me someone can become President of the United States without some measure of work ethic or accomphishment. That goes for Clinton too, whom I despise as a politician. You may want to copy-and-paste that because that is one of the only times I'll give Bubba anything even remotely resembling a compliment. And I only did that because Clinton thinks very highly of the intellect of our honorable President GW (a little known fact that our leftie-friends here seem to ignore).

I just think George II is a dim bulb, that's all. He doesn't impress me with his intellect; he doesn't impress me with his knowledge of the world. I don't think he's a bad man, though. I just don't think he should ever have gotten to this high office-and that is not a reference to the Florida Fiasco.

Anybody besides me who is sick of the Dem vs. Rep arguments? They never end and the name-calling is not necessary since a vast majority of us, whether conservative or liberal, are near the center. This is a democracy and everyone should have the right to share their opinions without worrying about being attacked.

tupolev.. I know you would love to jump on the "let's trash the conservatives band wagon" with the other big boys, but you need to finish school first. Our country was not founded on seperation of church and state. In fact, most of the founding fathers were deeply religious men who recognized that a nation NOT founded on God's principles was doomed to failure.

"That book (the Bible), sir, is the rock on which our republic rests." -- Andrew Jackson

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." -- George Washington

"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society. I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year." -- John Quincy Adams

"Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure, than they have it now, they may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty." --John Adams June 21, 1776


As the Declaration of Independence was being signed, 1776, Samuel Adams declared:

"We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come."


"[I consider] ethics, as well as religion, as supplements to law in the government of man." --Thomas Jefferson to Augustus B. Woodward, 1824. ME 16:19

"God... has formed us moral agents... that we may promote the happiness of those with whom He has placed us in society, by acting honestly towards all, benevolently to those who fall within our way, respecting sacredly their rights, bodily and mental, and cherishing especially their freedom of conscience, as we value our own." --Thomas Jefferson to Miles King, 1814. ME 14:197


I could find hundreds more just like these, but it is late and you will not listen anyway, so I am not going to waste anymore of my time on your silly little attack.

What the founding fathers did NOT support was state sponsered religion such as they suffered when under the rule of the Church of England. The seperation of church and state was designed to protect religion from the government, NOT, and I repeat NOT to keep religion out of government.

Before you accuse me of twisting facts, son, make sure you have a few of your own to back you up.

Tupolev- one more thing, and I won't waste much time with you on this one either... America is NOT a democracy. Never has been. Never will be. Now if you sat through your high school civics class and missed that whole point, then there truly is no hope for our education system after all. America is a Constitutional Republic, which is completely and DELIBERATELY different than a democracy. Now, if you want to argue with me about this, get some facts to prove your point first. If you can't do that, then what you have to say is as meaningless as what you have already posted.

And by the way, I have already backed up factually the claims I made in this post in other places in this forum, so don't crawl down my throat for not doing it again. If you insist on facts, I will provide you some later on I suppose. But as I said, it is late now, and I am sure I am wasting my time on your thick skull anyway.

So who ever denied that our founding fathers were religious men? Or that religion hasn't played a role in shaping the personal morality of Americans? But nowhere did our founding fathers even mention that Christianity should be adopted as an official religion or even promoted by the State.

What's your aimless rant all about?

Looks like someone really wants a religious theocracy placed above our so-called constitutional republic. Yet one more atrocity committed in the name of America's "Christian" Khomeinis. Oh, the persecution and hatred promulgated for the Glory of Christ ! Don't even get me started....but, it's Friday and I'd rather expend my energies in bracing myself for a dinner of fish sticks.

Misunderestimators? Kinda sounds like one of those GWB made-up words that can't be found in any dictionary.

At any rate, yes, it is apparent by this photo that Europe has been totally captivated by Dubya's visit, hanging on to his every word.

You know it's interesting how Mr. Twott is jumping on the 'Oh we're not a democracy' band wagon. I wonder if he would be saying this if all the ballots cast in Florida were counted.
What is the point in having all those elections anyway if we aren't a democracy? The only truths I can find in his claim is that really, it's the large corporations that decides who run our country, not the people! Look at all the money it cost to run an election. That resembles a 'caste' system. where only the ruling class controls our government similar to Bush's friends in Kuwait .

If our founding fathers were such 'moral' figures, explain all the shackles & chains and all rape & murder they committed.

I couldn’t find the work 'Misunderestimators' in any dictionary nor is it recognized by any spell check.

BTW, was this supposed to say, "For All Of The GWB Masturbators"? Big grin
Just wondering!  Smile

Alpha 1-

They didn't have an easy life. Can you imagine how traumatic that must have been to lose your child/sister at that young age? Or how about flying off carriers to battle the Japanese when you are only about 18 years old? I think that's a far cry from the "Beverly Hills 90210" lifestyle everybody thinks of. Don't forget Bush Sr.'s dad was a very powerful senator and could have pulled a lot of strings for his children and grandchildren. But no, they were left to rise and fall on their own.

I agree with everything Twotterwrench wrote-- its the plain truth. Nice job... couldn't have written it better myself.

And as for this silly argument that President Bush is not very educated (stupid, maybe), had an easy ride, etc., I don't think that the lefties here actually believe that, its just another stupid argument they can make up. If they truly do believe it... well I pity their ignorance.
