Excellently said Klod. Even if he wasn't joking, its no reason to resort to name calling Bubba.

Too bad that you seem to be devoid of humour yourself. I do believe that it is perfectly possible to agree with and respect a man, yet still laugh at/with him on occasion - just look at Bono!

Ya know.. I'm not so sure I agree with this statement.. of course, Angela will, Gonz will... And I'll take your word on your respect/poke fun at little reasoning, but I don't think that is the issue when it comes to the press, or other liberals.. Because it's a continual thing, and the liberals are just looking.. through a microscope it seems at times, and will use anything to denigrate, laugh at, shit upon, or ridicule George W. for,... Geezus.. I can't believe I've got to defend a sense of humor in me..

It becomes a bit weary to see huuge headlines over and over about W's latest flub.. and Klodomir.. of all people I'll laugh at anything, I get smacked upon time and time again in this forum, because I've just dropped piles of laughter on practically anything,

The SNL skits were hilarious, where they'd impersonate Bush, but I don't quite think that it is all just innocent laughter backed by a true respect for the man.. That's all, I know that you probably won't agree with me, but seriously, I'm not far off on this one.

Oooooh, I called people "schmucks". Will the forum survive such a venomous verbal attack?

<sigh>

And I don't believe I have to defend myself on whether I have a sense of humor, Klod. Of course it's fine to laugh at the President's sense of humor; hell, I believe the quote (in context) demonstrates it. But you and I both know the difference between laughing with someone, laughing at someone, and genuine concern that the implication that the President is unqualified to be President - and this thread began from a position far too close to that implication.

Think I'm off my rocker? Watch SNL sometime, and look at the way they treated Ford, Reagan, Quayle, and - at least for a while - George W. Bush.

Further, it seemed to me at least THIS criticism had no bearing in reality, once you considered a minor thing like context. If those who posted previously had no idea, I was informing them. If they intentionally ignored the context, I was nailing them on it.

Sorry if that demonstrates a lack of a sense of humor.

Do you know what the word literally means, Bubba?

Btw, I wasn't implying that TheU2 posted out of respect for Bush, I was just suggesting that even by his supporters, it could be seen as funny. I'm sure he even intended it that way. I didn't read it as one of his "stupid" quotes, but one of his "funny" quotes.

Lemonite: not quite sure what you were saying there, but I do know you have a sense of humour. What I said was not directed at you.

Oh I know bro... I was just replying that although his misspeaks are funny at times, It seems that it becomes a headline on CNN worthy of a Larry King Special each time one happens.. I just ended up using your 'quote' as the vehicle to express that point.

Hey Lemonite, that last post of yours was completely coherent. Are you feeling okay, buddy?
