The Bush-Hater Thinks He's Colonel Jessep

Washington Ignores Bush’s Evite

The Washington Post reports that, at yesterday’s speech for the Council on Foreign Relations, President Bush had trouble filling the room:

Only a few hundred members showed up for the hastily organized event at a Washington hotel and empty chairs were removed from the back of the ballroom before Bush arrived.

It wasn’t for lack of effort. We were forwarded a desperate plea by the Council sent out late Tuesday, asking people who were planning on coming to please bring a friend.

Bush broke Council tradition by refusing to accept questions after his speech. Apparently, most people aren’t that excited about being used as a presidential prop. This may explain why Bush has preferred giving his speeches in front of military audiences, who are required to attend.

The operative phrase is: "A few hundred members showed up for the hastily organized event..."

I believe it is operatively understood to be "just a few hundred showed up". Spin spin spin Republicus. Facts are Pwezidante couldn't fill a room with real foreign policy folks, he's a joke, and so is your defense of him.

The word "just" is used by you--and perhaps the journalist--as a subtle emphasis to spin away from the reason why it was "just"-- because it was hastily arranged.

And why is it all his "major" adresses are hastily arranged, usually with just an hours notice. Seems pretty pansyish to me, but he is a coward in the highest sense, so it's understandable.

Well, let's see, we're in a war against terrorism and there are American citizens like you out there, so the president should announce his whereabouts well in advance?

Why do you think the Vice President's location is undisclosed?

Because he is and always has been a major pussy.

No, because we're in a war against terrorism and there are American citizens like you out there.

There are alot of "American Citizens" out there like me, first thing you've been right about. People like me who won't allow criminality by our own government being done in our name, to take a backseat to what is right. I will not take for granted that these lying creeps have our best interest at heart, they don't. When they blatantly lie and you say thanks, more please, I won't, I will hold them accountable, no free passes here from me or those Citizens like myself. It's called patriotism, and we are the best this country has right now. Bank on it.

Timothy McVeigh did what he did in the name of "patriotism".

Of course he did.

P.S. Johnson was not impugning patriotism, but *false* patriotism.

You guys need to grow the hell up, get a grip Kelly. Questioning and outing a criminal government, believe it or not is a good thing. You guys are lost causes, mass hysterics and blinding fear have caused some of you Bush Lovers to go certifiably nutso on the rest of us. As Republicus says, I hope you will snap out of it soon. But faced with the enormity of facts that this admin is incredibly vile, criminal, and completely untrustworthy, you still hold them to be the standard bearers of hope and justice in this world. You guys are nuts.Theres not much hope for you that I can see at this point.

John,

I can completely see what you mean about this guy. It's like trying to argue with a 2-year old. You just don't get anywhere.

Look what Lee Harvey did:

Republicus said: "The operative phrase is: "A few hundred members showed up for the hastily organized event..."

Lee Harvey replied: "I believe it is operatively understood to be "just a few hundred showed up".

The "just" was actually in the quote, but Republicus pointed out that Lee Harvey's emphasis on "just"--and perhaps the journalist's-- was a subtle, snide dig meant to transmit a dearth of popularity over the fact that it was "hastily arranged" (the journalist could have written something like: "The event was hastily arranged, so just a few hundred people were able to attend").

That's insidious spin, perhaps on the journalist's part, most certainly on Lee Harvey's.

How does Republicus know that?

Is he a clairvoyant like the temple-twirling Gothamimage?

Of course not. When Republicus accuses someone as "thinking" some way, he qualifies that with "he seems to think" that way, and then backs up the apparent "seeming" with the own words of the accused, as is proper (and then invites the accused to stand by their own words, re-phrase them, or take them back and correct themselves).

And now Republicus will back up the accusation that Lee Harvey and his Leftist ilk engage in just that very sort of insidious spin that Lee Harvey himself accused Republicus of engaging in when the latter unspun the word "just."

He described that unspinning as "Spin spin spin."

But that was a projection.

He was trying to reinvert the inversion that Republicus re-inverted.

Look what the snake does:

Republicus subtracted the subjective superfluity of "just."

Lee Harvey made sure to rush it back in and make that the operative word.

Republicus then said:

"...we're in a war against terrorism and there are American citizens like you out there."

What does Lee Harvey do?

PRECISELY what he did above--he rushes in to ADD a subjective superfluity to a quote, and this time when there was none to begin with:

"There are alot of "American Citizens" out there like me..."

Yes. "A lot" versus "just."

That is disgusting demagoguery.

He always tries to "back up" his own "facts" by the size of some polled, anonymous mob behind him, as if the Democracy the Founding Fathers established envisioned some rabble-rousing demagogue winning the presidency with the votes of an angry or stupid mob.

Actually, they did envision that...

...and feared it.

That's why we have a moderating, electoral system (a system demonized by hordes of vicious Leftist mobs after the 2000 election, tellingly enough).

*Merde." Republicus spits.
