Slam Dunk By Bush

Both of my brothers have each served about 12 yrs on nuke subs in the Navy. Naturally, they are Republicans. We are each about a year apart in age. My younger brother sends me his thoughts on politics from time to time and last night he hit the nail on the head.

In case you missed the White House press conference the other day, Bush ate Helen Thomas's lunch. He beat her like a red headed stepchild.

So, my brother says:
I think Bush should do his own White House press briefings. Fuck Scott Mclelland. Mclelland is like a fucking hamster. Where's Ari Fleisher when you need him? Bush should do his own press briefings...and he can set them straight and make them look like the partisan assholes that they are. Send Cheney to conduct the White House press briefings. Cheney would absolutely take their lunch money and slam them down in the playground mud. There's no way they could contain themselves. They would absolutely go ape shit, and everyone could see what hateful childish assholes they really are.

And he is absolutely correct. I was listening to the Neal Boortz Show the other day and Neal said, "President Bush should stroll into one those White House press briefings, step up to the mic and say, "Hillary, shut the hell up and sit down" , BOOM 84 point approval rating!"

I dont know how anyone can do a tour on a sub, I've been in them and rode one out to the breakwater from inside port everglades, we never submerged, and for that I'm greatful, I cant stand those sardine cans.

I disagree with you as to how Bush handled Helen Thomas, I think she asked a valid question and he did his best to deny it was a valid question while ignoring the facts on the ground in iraq. Obviously I dont know if there's a civil war there, i am not there to see, but interim PM Allawi thinks it is a civil war, and considering they lose 50-60 iraqi's a day lends credence to that view. The Yemen Civil War of 1962-1970 had an average of 51.67 deaths per day. some civil wars are more and some are less, but how do you tell? I think its who is doingthe killing. and so long as we keep finding dead bodies not linked to american firefights, what other conclusion could there be?

I think Bush should do his own press conferences too. The more he talks about this stuff the more we'll know what he thinks, whether or not we agree with it.

One extra point though, and its on the matter of blatant hypocracy:

"There's no way they could contain themselves. They would absolutely go ape shit, and everyone could see what hateful childish assholes they really are."

Is it just me, or does this statement seem hateful and childish?
