(this was revealed on the newsboards, and since the link is in German, Yahoo blocks it). Rice has been his educator and saviour all along, a brilliant woman, having force-fed information into that porous cranium since he ran for office. However, it's like refilling Lake Erie.
It is said, that, before September 11, George W. Bush thought the Taliban were a Bavarian brass band. Now, thanks to his comprehensive knowledge, the most powerful man in the world has gotten into hot water again. Washington - it was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarrassing situation. During a conversation between the two presidents, George W. Bush, 55, (USA) and Fernando Henrique Cadoso, 71 (Brazil), Bush bewildered his colleague with the question "Do you have blacks too?" Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day be telling Bush "Mr. President, Brazil probably has far more blacks than the USA. Some say it's the country with the most blacks outside Africa." Later, the Brazilian president, Cardoso said: regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his "learning phase."
From Der Speigel: May 19, 2002
This idiotic twerp, who has now, through inaction, let India/Pak progress to a knife-edge, jeopardizing as well our control of Afghanistan in terms of border security, has not got ONE FRIGGIN IDEA of what goes on in the world.
He lives in a cocoon, with a Texas mentality (no insult to some very bright Texans). Reportedly, no loud talking or shouting is allowed in the White House, now the model of mausoleum management, complete with corpses from the last Bush Presidency.
With all of the talk here about management performance by a CEO, this abysmal showing by a total naif is looked to, by some, as moral leadership. He's very good at body language, as it's his only tool, but LISTEN, and you understand. He could get the word "cleanup" out successfully, just now, in an ad-hoc statement on CNBC noting the WTC event. I'm sure he's still jet-lagged, but I think he was born that way.
I love my country, admire many Republicans, but this "fraud" perpetrated upon the American people is intolerable.
War or not, it's time the Democrats simply took him apart, and let the chips fall. It will be another 2 years until there's another chance to put adults back in charge.
Bush on CNBC today, noting that he's "told both India and Pakistan that war won't serve their interests..." - strong words, Dubya. Give 'em a tax cut to fix it all. Rumsfeld just on, saying the two sides are no longer talking, and there's nothing but evacuation talk.
>> Note how many ASCL and industry posts I've put up, and no one has one damned thing to say.
Pick, you continue to confuse "posting a lot" with "saying something worth listening to".
I certainly agree that you post a lot.
Note how many ASCL and industry posts I've put up, and no one has one damned thing to say.
The market is suffering from what's going on, affecting ASCL and everything else, ergo relevant. Since I'd like my customers to start spending again, and no one is forcing Bush to make these decisions, I blame him for a goodly portion of the current situation.
I would clarify, since you're intelligent enough to understand, I'm against radicalism from EITHER quarter, plus having an inane cipher representing this country in a time of serious peril.
your constant Bush bashing is killing me. I respect and follow your posts on all things except politcal, where I'm not on the same side of the aisle with you.
Please stop ramming it down everyone's throat. So what if someone wants to say God Bless George Bush. Let it ride.
God Bless Pickexpert
It's NOT election time? How about the midterms? How about getting some real control of the Senate, and making a dent in the House, and kiboshing this imbecile's grand plans to increase the National Debt?
Forget to take your Flintstone vitamins?
Bush asks "Do you have Blacks too"?

"Washington - It was Condoleezza Rice, White House foreign affairs advisor to Bush, who helped her boss get out of an embarrassing situation. In a discussion between presidents George W. Bush, 55, (USA) and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, (Brazil), Bush had astonished his colleague with the question: 'Do you have blacks, too?' While the Brazilian showed surprise over the Bush question, Rice, 47, cleared Bush up: "Mr. President, Brazil has probably more blacks than the USA. Some say it is the country with the most blacks outside of Africa." Brazil president Cardoso judged afterwards: With reference to Latin America, Bush is 'still in training.'"
"...CNN political commentator Carville ran with the Der Spiegel blurb, and it is being featured on most US anti Bush sites. This sad commentary of Bush's ignorance of the world outside of Crawford Texas actually pales with what most all political leaders who has talked with Bush have said privately.
Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, after hours of recent private conversations with Bush, expressed his dismay at an inability to get his views over to Bush because Bush lacked even a grade school understanding of basic Middle East geography...."
