    our misleader holds hands with those who harvested that tragedy.

        ...to imagine what the Limbaugh and the noise machine would have been spewing if that had been President Gore walking hand-in-hand with the Prince? Kissing him?
            "The nerve of Al Gore holding hands, HOLDING HANDS with the leader of the country that spawned the 9/11 attacks!! And he calls himself a president . Ha!! Would Ronald Reagan have strolled arm in arm with this enemy of the people? God, no. If George W. Bush had been elected in 2000, would he have kissed this cretin? Lord, no. People, I've got to tell you, this is a national disgrace."
             However, since the Al Gore and George Bush are 'reversed' the situational ethics of this bunch controls and not a word will be spoken.
             Sadly, the hand holding and ass kissing did no good. Ed Schultz reported today that the good prince said 'Thanks, but no thanks'. So much for w's energy policy....groveling,and not even doing that well enough.

          Great, fantastic fucking point!!!!!

          If Clinton had strolled hand in hand with the Saudi Monarch after 9-11 we'd never, ever hear the end of it. "Traitor," "homo," "hates America" would be 24/7, non-stop, all over talk radio. Debates on CNN, 50 op-ed pieces, front page Washington Times. Instead this jack-ass gets a free pass. Scream as loud as you can Hillbilly Dem! Someone is bound to hear you.

          The Book of Revelations is NOT a foreign policy manual.

          His behavior is so pathetic. Not only is this a slap in the face to the 9/11 victims, it just looks bad, protocol-wise. Bush is going overboard trying to show he loves Muslims while touting his influence over OPEC.

          When Hillary hugged a Palestinian (I think she was still running for the Senate), there was a feeding frenzy.
