Who says the Incumbent has no sense of humour?


A master of irony, GWB, with a straight face, delivers this humourous speech to the Chinese:

"We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labor rights not to antagonize China’s leaders but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential.”


And he has them rolling in the aisles with the following:

"The United States believes the people of China deserve the fundamental liberty that is the natural right of all human beings…So America stands in firm opposition to China's detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates, and religious activists.”


Who knew?

  3. Here's that man again! Does he do thing by accident or is somebody still prompting him badly after all these years?
    What part of Ireland are you from originally?

    He tampered with the votes and he bribed the Supreme Court, IMHO.

  5. I know Cait - nothing like tongue in cheek to get a point across.
    He is such an unbelievable hypocrite.

    *conas ta thu?*
    He can't move without a monosyllabic script and poly syllabic words have to be spelt out for him - even then he has trouble with the word "nucular".
    I'm from Cork originally, how about yourself?

  7. If you didn't know better, you'd think he believed it.

  8. I think we should all be grateful, that he has served his terms. Thankful that he can't run for a third and amazed that he got to be President at all.

    Clearly some very corrupt politics was going on behind the scenes, buying votes and other assorted nonsense. Every decision the man has ever made in office has been a disaster, it will be good to see the back of him.

    I know I'm not American, but I hope they have the good sense to put Barack Obama in office. That ought to shake things up, in a good way. Although I do feel sorry for the future President. As they will spend there time in office sorting George W. Bush's mess. They will probably still be cleaning up if they run for a second term.

  9. Ha, ha. As you said over at place: "Great minds ..." eh?

  10. Free press? He wouldn't know free press if it bit him on the bum! Bought and paid for in his own country it is, never mind about China. And if the Great "O" is next up, don't look for any change in that direction ! :-(
    Gotta keep the plebs brainwashed.

    I don't think his IQ can ever grasp what he's been scripted!

    In that we disagree, I think BO will serve up more of the same.

    The worst of it all is I think he has no concept,intellectual capacity or even the curiousity to explore any of his own scripted spoutings.
    The Precious will dish up the same old, same old.
    He already is giving us a sample. FISA, Wade vs Roe, etc, and my new favourite, tire gauges.

  15. Who knew? Certainly not the Americans who are fully aware of his policies on detainees and on torture of same. And certainly not the (almost enough the first time) people who voted for him, since they're still in denial. Ah, the hubris of this man! God bless America. Please. We need all the help we can get.

    We are all on tenterhooks as the world is been taken on such a perilous path.
    Let us hope 'change' is not another pipe-dream.

  17. not to mention yesterday's: "Russia has invaded a sovereign neighbouring state...Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st Century."

    The hypocrisy would be funny if it wasn't so serious.

  18. I caught that, Conor, the Boy in the Bubble and his great sense of humour, spreading it now to the Russians.
    I have the appalling feeling he believes himself.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
