Press Conference by the President
Still more of the same, hard work, more commitment, more troops, and that we are in it for the long haul. Etc. etc.
OK...So the sock puppet is making another speech, as he listens through his earpiece and attempts to re-iterate some simplified rhetoric to an unbelieving audience. Shouldn't a man in his position be required to have a few viable qualifications? Maybe the highest office in the land should have some kind of examination, like the entrance exam to a university. At least an IQ test along with a drug test and an extensive search of his past records.
Anyhoo...on to the press interview. My first question would be...Mr. President, being the commander in chief of our military forces, who do you answer to, and who writes your speeches? Could it be the PNAC loonies? You certainly don't answer to We The People and you are obviously not, as you put it, speaking from the gut. Could you please remove your earpiece and give me a straight answer, and if not please have the decency to step down, and let someone take your place who can. I was appalled when you were elected in 2000, but I now believe that was an underestimate of your prowess...
