I agree, meegie. Being a nice guy doesn't mean a damn. Anyone would console a child who had lost a parent. That he did it on camera doesn't make him a better man.

The man is a simple-minded, warmongering, homophobic fundamentalist bigot. He can hug all the little children he wants. I'm sure Michael Jackson and Catholic priests have done the same.

It will be a cold day in hell before I ever vote for Bush or even the GOP at this point.

Here's a better picture:



I will not forget the lies this man has told and his unabashed support for second-class citizenry of homosexuals.

I just love what you had to say Melon!!!!- my thoughts exactly, now, I want to know where are the pics of Bush consoling the millions of homeless people that reside on the streets of your country or an Iraqi child who has lost their parents by way of war fare???- thats right, these images dont make for good publicity

I think a good point has been made here: that Bush can be a nice guy and still be unfit for the Presidency. I really do believe that Bush is a decent person, and I hope he retires to Crawford and lives a happy, safe, simple life away from public eye...starting in January 2005.

JUST being a nice guy doesn't mean one would make a good President. A compassionate man consoling a sad child is a beautiful gesture, but by that argument any priest at my college, my dad, my grandfathers, my fiance, and my male friends would all be equally good candidates for President. Which is to say nothing of the fact that there are lots of nice women out there, many people say that the "niceness" of these women DISqualifies them from being President.

sigh.

Lets not drag this topic into the murkey depths of moral relitivism between a child that has had his family killed in a US bomb or a child who has had limbs amputated to force a confession from their parents. Both are barbarous, we have to choose the lesser of two evils.

I never ate rabbit growing up. I had never tried until I got to Barcelona a few years ago. Its really common here.

What kind are they? I don't know...I'd have to look it up. But they don't taste like chicken at all (if you don't burn them!).

that about sums it up for me


I am willing to believe this was all sincere and he would have done it even if there wasn't a camera around
it would be inhuman not to


if you can get votes because you are not inhuman
then I'm going into politics tomorrow
(well, tomorrow is saturday
so lets say next monday)

I don't know if someone already posted this, but I saw the girl on the news this morning, and her Father took that picture. He had just told the President how much he still missed his wife. That's who Bush was looking at-her Father, because they were speaking. Her Dad just wanted to try to quickly snap a photo to preserve the memory for her..he e-mailed it to some friends and family, so somehow it became public after that.

I don't like Bush as a President, but I appreciate that picture for what it is.
