Last week President Bush delivered a knock out speech in Communist China....

Did anybody see it?
Only 2 US Presidents have delivered speeches in China - Nixon and Bush.
Anyhow the speech was delivered at one of the most prestigous universities in China.
This university is equivilent to M.I. T. here in the states.
Bush was invited to speak there.
The students loved him.
He made a beautiful connection there.
He went on to explain the beauty of America and its freedoms.
After the speech, the students kept him there for 30 mins w/a question and answer period.
Many were laughing w/him and asking questions about America.
The leaders of China were very cordial.

The next day The Chinese newspapers printed the speech.
Only parts of it.
They censored the parts on freedoms in America. Nearly half of the speech from the telecast was omitted from the newspapers that the entire Chinese country saw on television.

I know why I love my country.

There is an interesting article about China in the latest Christianity Today magazine, well worth checking out.

President Bush delivering a "knock out speech"? Sounds like an oxymoron.

Hey now,Dano.

Obviously you did not watch this, maybe you were too busy watching Michael Moore's latest arobics fitness video. I dunno.

Comparing Bush's level of speech to Moore's physic is a good one. Considering that both need an overhaul.

I missed the speech but I'm glad to see it was so well received.

However, if you only judge a president by their speech that is like judging a 'subway sandwich' by that stupid commercial (the subway diet one).

I watched the whole speech. While I think it's quite a good speech, I don't think it was that excellent / special. Really. Last time Clinton went to another university in China and he gave a speech too. Therefore, there're at least 3 Presidents of US who has delievered speeches in China.

Oh, and no, not all of the newspapers censored those parts of the speech. Only some of them did. I know that.

The man who coined the phrase 'axis of evil' for Bush's State of the Union has since left his job.

what's your freakin problem z edge?
you think he wrote that speech himself?

or should I have posted in a disclaimer that Clinton his speeches were also written for him, so that even you can't start calling me a conservative hating liberal?

Lets not forget the thrust or idea of the thread Brother Salome-
Bush "DELIVERED" an excellent speech that of course was written for him.
Slick Willy delivered a few good speeches in his day. A lot of Americans take issue w Clinton's personal integrety, unlike Bush's.

That may very well be true Mr Diamond, but I think Salome wanted to point out that folks sometimes dont think of this when heaping either praise or criticism of politicians speeches.
