    I think it's great - Bush talking to the troops, rallying them to continue being brave. It's a glorious war.

    No spontaneity quite like carefully rehearsed spontaneity.

    Maybe he should have re-arranged stones in the shape of cross on the beaches of Normandy. Then the LameStreamMedia would have lauded his sensitivity.

    There is no depth to the hatred of our President by the Left.

    I'm neither surpised nor upset that a politician would engage in political theater.

    Not suprising. Politicians and officers are both adverse to suprises in public.

    Some of you guys are so cynical. The time to be cynical will be when they use animatronic soldiers created at LucasFilm.

    Just politics.

    I'm sure every president has done something like it.

    So what part was staged? Passing the mike or the answers?

    Let me tell everyone here how I would feel if the Boss was asking me questions directly. I'd be so nervous I'd turn a turd into a diamond. Better to know who your passing the mike to for the next question instead of looking around like an idiot on video waiting for someone to answer the question.

    Each of the members had a specific area they were to answer about. What they staged was the hand off to the person who was getting the next question.

    Calling them soldiers stoolies is getting on my nerves. :fire:

    Guns? Gun control? Civil rights? Law? Popcorn, peanuts, crackerjacks, co'cola? No?

    Sounds like APS material to me...

    :), Art

    Dangit, I hate when I have the perfect quote for something like this and the thread gets closed! (Art's right though.) Check this out: "He has devoted the best years of his life to preparing his impromptu speeches." F. E. Smith said that about Winston Churchill. The more things change ... -- pax
