  •  Can we agree, then, on gauche? maladroit? (none)
    I do have a problem with your last paragraph, given that the little monkey was lecturing us - and the world - earlier in the week on our own history and how the Iraqis today are just like the Americans under the Articles of Confederation and just need . . . patience (yeah, patience! that's the ticket!) [Of course, that is just a week after he lectured us on the perfidy of Yalta and how it was just like Molotov-von Ribbentrop (perfidy! ka-ching! another winner!)]

    I have to believe he has in what remains of his rum-soaked cerebrum turned the corner on nation-building . . .

    •  I heard that ridiculous lecture, (none)
      which once again revealed his complete lack of understanding about what he's talking about. In comparing the Iraqi struggle for freedom to the American forefather's struggle, he doesn't seem to understand that it was when the Americans finally drove the occupying forces out in ignominious defeat that the structural work of developing a free society began. He doesn't seem to get it that in the case of Iraq, it's the Bush army that is the occupying force, and that as a result, his analogy represents the reverse of what he thinks it does.

      He probably does believe his policy is furthering democracy and freedom and all that other grand stuff. but it's only cause Cheney (Satan) and Rove (Rasputin without the charm), tell him.

      Gauche? Most certainly. Maladroit? In spades. Bumbling hapless nitwit who's extremely dangerous by dint of his position and massive personal ignorance? Closer. But then I don't want to look like I'm beating up on the village idiot by describing him further. He is, after all, a victim of psychopathic minds far more clever than his own.

      Defeat the sound-bite.

      •  Rasputin without the charm! I yield! LOL (none)
        This board is rolling off the bottom now, so I look forward to sharing with you on another in coming days!

        I do agree that one could become a serious drunk by playing the 'Bob' game against all the badministration's references to 'foreign fighters' in Iraq, as though we had stolen their country fair and square the way we once did Panama. LOL

        'This is my daughter Plon and my other daughter Plon' - that one will stay with me a while.

        •  One final transmision on this thread. (none)
          the link here is to a great article by Stirling Newberry that touches on much of what we discussed.

          See you soon. I'll look for you on the threads.

          •  Got it! (none)
            Wow! I will look for an opportunity to share it in other threads (if I may).

            Catch ya on the flipside!
