Watchimatize this Dubya poster! It's an exclusivity type deal!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The talkbacks are going to be very curious on this one. Oliver Stone's W is a fascinating project. It weirds me out how in the trailer not one person looks like the people they're playing, but at the same time they look EXACTLY like the people they're playing. I don't know how the hell Stone does that, but it adds a very surreal layer onto everything. Now we got ourselves a first look at the W teaser poster, which strangely enough reminds of the Apatow comedy posters like 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN and STEP-BROTHERS and KNOCKED UP, with the poster just being a photo of the main character. That's not a bad thing... I quite like the look of the poster, actually, just something that occurred to me when I first opened it up. This whole thing is strange, but a good strange. Can't wait to see what the final product ends up being. Click to make big!

    A lot of you hated "Nixon" the movie...

    by MCVamp

    I can understand that, but detached from being a history lesson it's a fascinating movie at times. Granted, it's carried FAR more by Hopkin's portrayal than anything else, but despite the "bomb" label it gets, it may be my favorite Oliver Stone movie after "Platoon." I realize no one cares, just thought I'd throw it out there. If the actors bring their "A" games, this might avoid being a massive train wreck. Otherwise it's either too soon or too late to show the human side of the worst President in my lifetime (but not of ALL time...that's going a little overboard with guys like Buchanan and Grant in the books.

  • Seriously, who the hell is this movie for? Liberals already know how he fucked the country over, Conservatives don't wanna hear that message-they've had their fingers in their ears humming the national anthem every time some new negative revelation of this asshole comes to light. So who the fuck is gonna watch this?

  • Aug. 4, 2008, 2:49 p.m. CST

    I'm afraid this will be too rushed. It could turn out

    by GQtaste

    embarrassing for Stone and company. Don't get me wrong, I'm liberal as hell, but that doesn't change the possibility that this could be a disaster. And another thing: Oliver wants this to come out before Nov. election. But Bush isn't running, it's another person. Sure he'll say that McCain is simply another retread of this administration, but often times these things end up backfiring for their side. i.e. Micheal Moore, celeb endorsements etc. Regular folk don't favor having the rich actors tell them how to think, even though they have their best interest when it comes to our pocketbooks. But one thing is for sure: the American public can at times be fooled into thinking that the elephants have their best interests at hand. Esp. the south! For those that would love a great book on how the elephants tricked the working men and women out of their votes check out "What's the Matter with Kansas?: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America" Here is a brief excerpt: The largely blue collar citizens of Kansas can be counted upon to be a "red" state in any election, voting solidly Republican and possessing a deep animosity toward the left. This, according to author Thomas Frank, is a pretty self-defeating phenomenon, given that the policies of the Republican Party benefit the wealthy and powerful at the great expense of the average worker. According to Frank, the conservative establishment has tricked Kansans, playing up the emotional touchstones of conservatism and perpetuating a sense of a vast liberal empire out to crush traditional values while barely ever discussing the Republicans' actual economic policies and what they mean to the working class. Thus the pro-life Kansas factory worker who listens to Rush Limbaugh will repeatedly vote for the party that is less likely to protect his safety, less likely to protect his job, and less likely to benefit him economically. P.S. I should know, I'm from Oklahoma and it drives me crazy how stupid and short-sided 80% of this state is when it comes to politics. Oh, i just guessed at that percentages btw.

If its entertaining and thought provoking enough it will be a hit...Period.

    What's he saying with this poster?

    by heyscot

    That Presidents have their hair and makeup done before going on television? Or just Bush? Or that Bush is fake because he's having his hair and makeup done? Or that Bush puts a lot into presentation? Because they didn't randomly select this as their teaser poster.

  • Aug. 4, 2008, 3:05 p.m. CST


    by fassbinder79

    I think what Stone is saying with this poster is that politics is an illusion. Smoke and mirrors. Not so much as it is the political process in general. Its about appearances and underneath it all its a very hollow world filled with vapid people too concerned with how they are perceived in the media than what they are doing as leaders.

    "Wow I did'nt know they let morons fly fighter Jets, I always heard it was a pretty tough gig. I wonder what Lucasblows and Jopapa do for a living? flipping burgers? Mopping floors? certainly something that requires hi intellect". As high an intellect as being able to spell the word "high" or as knowing to capitalize the first word in a sentence? I believe this qualifies you as "Another dummy for Bush"--Or is that redundant?

  • Aug. 4, 2008, 3:09 p.m. CST

    I can't say anything about the movie

    by veritasses

    but I like the poster. Here, Bush is distant, alone and looking solemn framed by the slightly out of focus yet prominent and equally still, solitary flags that he represents all set against the blank, grey wall. That part of the image by itself, along with the washed out colors, I think makes us see/feel for Bush the man and the weight he bears. He's completely surrounded in the foreground by the hubbub of the big mike, big comb, big brush and the woman's big arm and head which are only concerned with his exterior and seem to further accentuate and isolate Bush. Then the words Get Ready propels the image from the man we see in the poster, to the most powerful man in the world who ultimately makes the decisions that determines the fate of so much in the world. I think it's different, in some ways subtle, emotional, yet powerful. shows us the personal and public side of W.

  • Aug. 4, 2008, 3:09 p.m. CST


    by heyscot

    I agree with you, it's probably what he's saying, but I hope he says it clearly enough that America gets it. Why didn't he make a film about Clinton with a poster like this? Let me just add, I'm a pretty die-hard Democrat, and the reason I'm sort of disappointed in this poster is that (in my opinion) it gives another excuse to ignore Stone's movies because they'll say "Yup, he's not being fair." Although then again, people are going to disregard the movie no matter what *because* it's Oliver Stone. Any political movie he makes gets ripped apart as partisan. BTW the movie "The Hand" freaked me out when I was a kid.

    i think that some of you have become so polarized by 24 hout news pundits and such , that you can't see the forest for the trees . No matter who the Prez is , it's all the same old stuff . Federal politics blind you from the politics that actually impact you in your day to day life . Local politics... The news tells you that the economy is bad ( 18 months before there was any such growth loss at all ) then SURPRISE!! there is a slow down. But a slowdown in growth... not a recession . We are the only country in the world who sees a slowdown in economic growth as a recession . many countries would scream to have even a tiny percentage of growth , but we are spoiled babies who blame the president for everything ( regardless who it is ). The president didn't make you max out your credit cards and treat luxury items as neccesities .... Blame yourselves. But nobody does that anymore , this culture of victimization has created a people who blame others for their own misbahaviors... tragic Yes I am a republican , but I don't condone the spending of this "neocon" group that seems to have taken over . I want smaller govt , I want limited ( if any ) entitlements , i don't want govt bailouts of corporations and I don't give a damn about social politics. In other words , I'm a Goldwater Republican. This movie may turn out to be a one sided load of malarky , or it may actually be relatively fair . ( I thought Nixon turned out to be a lot fairer to the man than it was going to be , kinda made Nixon look like he was kinda driven to paranoia by JFK's assassination and hiring the wrong group of folks around him ..hopefully this movie will be as fair . Please lefties , stop thinking you have some high road or are the only people who know whats going on and the people in the south and mid-west are stupid . We have a pretty good handle on things you know , and calling us stupid is not exactly going to endear someone to your cause is it ?

    Conservatives will scream that it's a sympathetic look at a man who was always set up for failure and liberals will say that it emcompasses everything that went wrong with W's administration.

    by ThornBalls

    I would have prefered it to come out at the same time next year, just in case there's something monumental that should be included in his last few months in office. But it may seem unneccesary right now to all of us who deal with bush every day and see what a moron he is. But this movie will be a great thing for future generations. When you can have a big release biopic about how shitty a sitting president is then you know we live in a country with a lot of freedom. Time has really glossed over a lot of presidents and their accomplishments and mistakes. But thanks to the internet and movies like this one this louse will be remembered for stealing an election and throwing our country into turmoil. A more fitting tribute I can't imagine.

    Bush Poster Is Very Cool

    by lennox252

    I think this poster really exemplifies what the film is going to be about. It shows Bush all alone, being made up by faceless strangers before he takes center stage for a televised speech (I imagine the notorious one when he announced the US was going into Iraq). I think Brolin was a great choice to play the man himself, and if any director can successfully pull off a film of this proportion, it's Oliver Stone. Look forward to seeing it this fall

    O SHIT! Look at the mess that an inexperienced, racist hyper-liberal retard like Obama would cause this nation! Its a good thing that he is finally falling behind in the polls! Obama is an unqualified dick who doesn't deserve a chance as President. <p>I don't care what you believe (if you are gullible enough) about Bush. Obama would be FAR WORSE! <p>Obama is the 2nd coming of Jimmy Fucking Carter mixed with George McGovern with the B.O. stench of Teddy Kennedy's putrid and murderous jock/rape strap! I wouldn't vote for Obama if he was the only person running. Hillary or McCain would be the only choice in 2008.</p> <p> Since Hillary was betrayed by the leftists in control of her party, our selection is John McCain -or- the most putrid and pompous dick ever to grace the halls of Congress (albeit for only about 3 months before deciding that he was "qualified enough" to run for President). </p> My vote if for a maverick war hero who was serving this nation from a POW cell while Obama was shooting up with cocaine at Harvard. Obama is a cynical prick, a pompous, self-righteous dick, and come November, he will go back to his buddies Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright in Chicago.</p>Of course, Obama just thinks that we are "bitter." LOOK IN THE MIRROR, DICK! You are a cynical little pessimist, aren't you?!?

    Democrats go on vacation

    by AntoniusBloc

    While we suffer high gas prices, and refuse to even vote on an energy bill that will help us to be energy independant, therefore more secure, and would contribute to future lower gas prices. President Bush has already acted, lifting the ban to drill our own oil, now it's up to congress to move this forward. What does the democratic majority do? They vote to go on vacation instead of allowing a vote on an important energy bill that would allow us to drill our own oil and not depend on those hostile to us. What's disturbing here is the elitism of the Democrats. They are financially secure, gas prices don't effect them that much. But for the average citizen, the sooner congress acts, the sooner gas prices go down, and the sooner real relief goes to the average american: where it counts, at the gas pump. The extremist environmental democrats, (of course only americans deserve a good environment since they are willing to accept foreign oil) are putting our national security at risk and pointlessly making the average american suffer from these high gas prices. </p> What a waste this film is now that the results of most of President Bush's policies are showing to be successes, and those that aren't successful, especially as it relates to the ecomomy, are showing to be the fault of a Democratic congress refusing to act; they would rather go on vacation than solve a real problem the average american faces; President Bush, as usual, took the lead to provide real relief; the Democrats choose to go on vacation, and have a good laugh about the new Oliver Stone film. I can't wait to see the backlash on this film as we realize how we are going to miss the true leadership of the outgoing President.

    House Republicans rebel

    by AntoniusBloc

    Despite the Democratic majority refusing to vote, and deciding to close down congress and go on vacation, some House republicans are protesting the move, insisting that the american people deserve better, and continuing to remain in Congress: (The Politico) Continuing with their guerilla tactics from last week, House Republicans will be back on the floor Monday to talk gas prices, even though Congress is in recess, and they may stay there all week. Here's the story:<p> More than a dozen Republicans have already committed to make appearances, according to House GOP leadership aide, including National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Cole (Ga.). Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Mike Pence (R-Ind.), who lead Friday's five-hour talkathon after the House shut down for the August recess, are also expected to be there, according to this aide. "In an urgent memo sent to GOP Members and staff Saturday (“A Call to Action on American Energy”), Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) hailed Friday’s action, which was led by Reps. Mike Pence (R-IN), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Tom Price (R-GA), and others, and encouraged House Republicans to return to the Capitol beginning Monday morning to help keep the historic effort going," said a press release just released by Minority Leader Boehner's office. “It’s not a request we make lightly. But the American people are suffering,” Boehner and Blunt said in the memo. “The consequences of continued congressional inaction on gas prices are unacceptable. We’ve called on the Speaker to call Congress back into an emergency session this month and schedule a vote on the American Energy Act. We must continue to make a stand until the Speaker complies. ” The session will not be televised, since C-Span does not control the cameras inside the House chamber. Rather, those come under the purview of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats, and they're unlikely to do anything to help Republicans. But Republicans felt they got a lot of good press out of Friday's "revolt," so they will be back at it again, and younger GOP lawmakers were clearly energized by the tactic, something not evident among Republicans for most of the 110th Congress.</P>

    Obama says to 'inflate your tires'

    by AntoniusBloc

    That's his answer to higher gas prices, along with getting a 'tune-up'. Since he's driven everywhere, he doesn't realize how pointless this is. And Stone wants to ridicule President Bush? In the meantime, Obama is in line with the Democrats in congress who refused to allow a vote to pass an energy bill that would start the process of providing real relief to the american people to lower gas prices. Not insult our intelligence and tell us to inflate our tires. What's next, turn off the AC?

    Pelosi wants oil prices high

    by Darth_Inedible

    And the dems know that even allowing that vote to go through could mean sub $100 oil by Sept which would hurt Obama's chances. The danger here is that the public will begin to catch on to the game, which is why Obama is "softening his take" on offshore drilling. 'You get no relief today, but I'm softening my take... for tomorrow' -wink wink-. He should just be honest and tell the American people that the Democrats and the media will stop trying to strangle the country if they will just kneel and kiss the hand in November.

    Haven't Heard Many Of His Speeches Or Interviews Then?

    by LaserPants

    Obama is a MASTER. Dodges rhetorical bullets left and right, always keeps on message, never loses his cool, always manages a cool twist of phrase. He calms off as calm, though passionate. And no, not prepared speeches from teleprompter, I'm talking about answers delivered from questions asked during interviews in addition to his speeches. <br><br>On the other hand, wvery time McCain speaks he seems out-of-touch, vaguely confused, sweaty, surly, and angry. He blusters, tries to clumsily use Obama's "hope and change" rhetoric. (Btw its a pretty clear tell who has control of the narrative when one candidate has to swipe the other guys message.) He comes off like the old guy telling the kids to get off his lawn. And I mean, equating Obama with Britney Spears and Paris HIlton.. aftet the Hilton family pledged all kinds of money to McCain's campaign?! Man oh man. Its a close race, to be sure, but its Obama's to lose. All he has to do is keep doing what he's doing, and McCain will inevitably lose his cool and blow up on camera. Then its done and done.

    by LaserPants

    Its not a popularity contest. Its the fact that we alienated nearly ALL of our allies by creating false intelligence to start an unjustifiable war. Allies we need if we are going to win this war. Clearly, we can't do it alone. <br><br>The world was on our side after 9/11. They were on our side with the invasion of Afghanistan. But when the Bush Admin started making shit up? Cooking intelligence to justify the unjustifiable invasion of Iraq? We lost their support. And the fact that we are losing this war shows that we can't do it unilaterally. We can't do it alone. And thats not even touching on the fact that the best way to bring in terrorists is by local law enforcement on the ground, not through a protracted asymmetrical campaign. Know what happened the last time we tried to wipe out an entrenched insurgency through asymmetrical warfare? It was called Vietnam and we got our asses kicked. <br><br>As it stands we are no longer a superpower. BUT we were previous to the Bush Admin's epic policy failures. And we still would be if we worked with our allies rather than telling them "either yer for us or agin us! duh-hilt!" I'm sure Obama realizes this and will, hopefully, act accordingly when he takes office to repair the damage dealt by 8 years of Bush's reign of error.

    I am tired of this hack left wing nut job trying to rebel rouse and browbeat America into submission. Everything is about cospiracies and how awful the government (republican) is. If he and Michael Moore would re-enact the last scene in Thelma and Louise I would be a happy man. Admittedly "W" is not the greatest president ever but anyone thinking Obama is dumb ass Yes we can, is going to be better has their head up the hole. Obama and the presidency equals us getting run over by every nut job terrorist in the world. Heres one last bif F you to Oliver Stone.

    A president who actually tries to look good? BASTARD!

    by Cotton McKnight

    I can't BELIEVE this?!?!?! Is this real? President Bush actually has a person to do his hair before a photo shoot? That fucking no good son of a bitch.. with all of the problems in this country, I can't BELIEVE he does that! What, does he have his own tailor too?!? <p>Mr. Stone, thank you SO much for opening the eyes of so many, including me. I thought that George Bush rolled out of bed out every day, put on a suit like you and me, and went to work. The very idea that he actually has people that help him look good is so offensive. No other president did this. You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

    by macheesmo3

    not theway to run a federal govt . Why is there so much anger ? Bush didn't do anything better or worse than you would've done and ALL presidents have done since we started having presidents. They put their buddies in key roles , they catered to the people that contributed money to their campaigns . Big surprise ! I also find it amusing that some of you lefties seem to get your news from and conspiracy books . Yet these same people are the ones screaming about GOP's getting theior news from Hannity or Limbaugh ( who at least seem to have a sense of humor ). something tells me that this anger is just a reflex action that your party seems to have picked up during the '60's and can't seem to shake off . It's very offputting and is the reason the Dem's can't win any sort of federal office anymore . Heck your last president had to pretend to be a republican just to get elected ( and then he pretty much acted liek one to with many of his policies) . The leftist socialist /communist ideals are dead . Most Americans do not want a 50% income tax welfare state. The problem lately though , has been that it isn't a matter of whether or not we have big Govt programs , but rather which big govt programs are we gonna have ? Both sides have their respective pet entitlement programs .... sickens me . The Fed. govt is not supposed ot be our babysitter. it's supposed to defend us , print our money and deal with foreign govts PERIOD!! Everything else is to be run by the states ( who do only what the local and county govts can't ) But these days it seems everybody wants a handout and nobody is responsible for their own actions and everything is the Presidents fault ( be it Clinton or Bush or whomever is President for the forseeable future ) . Why don't some of you take your rage and energy and apply it to your local city counsel meetings , it might actually end up leading to something valuable instead of whining and cussing about a President . How cliche and 1967...

    That even the Stone films I sorta liked when I first saw them, ended up grating on my nerves upon subsequent viewings.

    Hannity and Limbaugh have a sense of humor? Really? Care to provide some examples of such humor? Easily the most humorless Presidential terms have to have been the Republican Congress during the Clinton years. Self-righteousness and sanctimony was being spewed from every right-wing mouth over Clinton's sins, while Republican congressmen were hiring fresh male pages to sexually harass. Seriously, your whole post rings so obviously false I'm surprised you had the gall to type it.

    It's the one I'd probably put at the top, but I don't think it's a perfect film, and ultimately, it's really a pretty thin narrative. I dunno.

Only two of his fellow Democrats had the moral compass to vote his censure in 1990. </p> <p>Democratic Congressman Gus Savage was accused of molesting a young, underage male Peace Corps volunteer in 1989, but the Democrats who controlled Congress refused to discipline him. </p> <p>Current Democratic Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii was accused of sexual harassment by 14 individuals during the 1990s. However, the Democrats didn't think that this was worth investigating </p> <p> Democratic Congressman Fred Richmond from New York was arrested for having sex with a 16 year old male. However, he easily won reelection by his fellow Democrats and served until going to prison for drugs and tax evasion during the 1980s. </p> <p>And of course, who could forget Teddy Kennedy? This liberal Senator was involved in a suspicious death of a young lady in 1969. He not only plead guilty of "leaving the scene of an accident" (that he himself caused), but the entire crime scene was covered up (looking a lot like a rape and murder). Of course, this knowledge probably came in handy when Uncle Teddy defended his rapist nephew in 1991. </p> Republicans abandon those few who are caught in such gross indiscretions. Democrats simply re-elect their fellow criminals. Of course, you will simply ignore this, won't you Sexy? You love to see only the altered shit that you want to see.

    I'm ashamed to share your name with mine. ChocolateReign, thanks for being a moderate on this. Bush sucked. Hard dick knobs. Rove is currently in contempt, and is claiming immunity that he doesn't have the right to claim. Cheney will die soon. We, all of us, will get over Bush. Or country is not torpedoed. We have weathered worse. We have withstood the Civil War. We have withstood WWI and II. The Great Depression (you think your stocks suck now?). Vietnam and Jim Crow. Seventies gas prices? And 9/11 and Iraq. We'll be okay. That said, we would do well to elect Obama. Sure Chrissssmmm, and Kegan, On Fuck-Nut, On Reaganite, and Fucktard and Blitzer, Obama is a newbie. So was someone else from Illinois when they got elected... Abraham Lincoln. Let's look at the similarities between them, shall we? 1) a lawyer; 2) an Illinois state legislator; 3) lost an election to represent Illinois in the U.S. Congress; 4) spent only two years in the U.S. Congress before running for President; 5) risked political damage in opposing a war in which the U.S. invaded a foreign country; 6) delivered a famous speech on national unity as a candidate to represent Illinois in U.S. Senate, elevating his political career to the national level and paving the way for a Presidential run; 7) sought his Party’s Presidential nomination by challenging the establishment candidate, a Senator from New York, also a lawyer, who was widely expected to easily secure the nomination; 8) was viewed by Party delegates as a talented speaker able to attract moderates and newer voters. I voted for Bush in 2000. I thought Gore was a self-centered Moron. W spoke like he was just an average dude who believed in good and freedom. But he systematically made me a liberal over these last eight years. I'm still a fiscal conservative, but on everything else this entitled frat boy with dad issues has foisted upon this country I am in stark opposition. Sometimes when I look back on it, should we have just let the South and Texas secede?

    Now don't get carried away here . Regardless of your political affiliation , Obama has about as much in common with Abe Lincoln as you do . He has no plan , it's just hype and newspeak and party line gibberish . the biggest problem he has is that he has no history of crossing party lines to get things done . This is the one attribute that McCain does have! He has done this to the point of being ostracized by the neocon factions of the GOP. I don't understand why some Dems try to push McCain as Bush 2 when he has very little in common with the Prez or his policies ( aside from the war , and as far as Iraq is concerned , we still have bases in Germany and that war ended 63 years ago ) . So maybe some of you should take another look at McCains policies and voting record and stop buying into hype. Obama has no record to look at , he's just a smooth talker who is going to be outmatched by most world leaders in my estimations . maybe some of you should do a little more reading ( and I don't mean just comic books ) and a little less name calling. That's one of the reasons things have gotten so cruddy is this partisan bullshit. You need to have friends who don't agree with you , this is how you gain PERSPECTIVE . If you are only surrounded with people you agree with , eventually it develops into dogma and people get very ugly when getting behind beliefs ( this counts on both sides I'm not picking on just the left or right here ). Tip O' Neil the former Dem Speaker when asked why there is so much partisan politics he replied " The two sides don't drink together anymore ..." that says it all...

    How out of touch is Barack Obama? He's so out of touch that he suggested that if all Americans inflated their tires properly and took their cars for regular tune-ups, they could save as much oil as new offshore drilling would produce. Gleeful Republicans have made this their daily talking point; Rush Limbaugh is having a field day; and the Republican National Committee is sending tire gauges labeled "Barack Obama's Energy Plan" to Washington reporters. <p> But who's really out of touch? The Bush Administration estimates that expanded offshore drilling could increase oil production by 200,000 bbl. per day by 2030. We use about 20 million bbl. per day, so that would meet about 1% of our demand two decades from now. Meanwhile, efficiency experts say that keeping tires inflated can improve gas mileage 3%, and regular maintenance can add another 4%. Many drivers already follow their advice, but if everyone did, we could immediately reduce demand several percentage points. In other words: Obama is right. <p> Politics ain't beanbag, and Obama has defended himself against worse smears. The real problem with the attacks on his tire-gauge plan is that efforts to improve conservation and efficiency happen to be the best approaches to dealing with the energy crisis — the cheapest, cleanest, quickest and easiest ways to ease our addiction to oil, reduce our pain at the pump and address global warming. It's a pretty simple concept: if our use of fossil fuels is increasing our reliance on Middle Eastern dictators while destroying the planet, maybe we ought to use less. <p> The RNC is trying to make the tire gauge a symbol of unseriousness, as if only the fatuous believed we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil without doing the bidding of Big Oil. But the tire gauge is really a symbol of a very serious piece of good news: we can use significantly less energy without significantly changing our lifestyle.

    Although I commend your fair and balanced perspective, I don't believe that I belong in the tin-foil hat wearing club. To clarify, my saying "Bush and Cheney helped 9/11 happen" is just shorthand for a more complex plot that simply had them at the very top of the conspiracy. I stand by my assertions. Bush, Cheney and the rest of their cabal have refused to testify under oath about their actions related to 9/11, before and after the event. Until they do, they have demonstrated nothing but contempt and duplicity towards America and continue to cover up their culpability in the attack.

    MCCAIN "ostracized by the neocon factions of the GOP"

    by BringingSexyBack

    Really? That's news to me. His entire campaign has ill-reflected the dignified John McCain we used to know. It looks more like the NeoCons have McCain in their pocket. Maybe they have pictures of him with a dead hooker in bed. Or maybe they offered him some of the "missing" $5 billion in cash that was stolen from Iraq. Anything's possible with that crowd.

  • Well, if everyone did it, they estimate they'd improve effeciency of their cars by upto 4 percent. Multiply that by the number of cars on the road that would benefit by doing just that - well that's a lot of refined petroleum. No more stupid than having decent insulation in your house to reduce heating bills in winter and airconditioning bills in the summer.

  • Aug. 5, 2008, 8:38 a.m. CST

    Looks like some people need to inflate their brains...

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    ...before they inflate their tires.<p>I agree with whoever said it doesn't matter who wins in November, the American people lose. Either way we're putting a corporate lackey without any integrity in the White House.<p>But as much as Obama continues to piss me off with his pandering lately, he did get one thing right. He put some of the burden of the gas crisis on us. Which is putting it kindly. Frankly speaking, Americans are 100% to blame for the situation we're in right now.<p>Let's start with the 70s and the infamous gas lines. As horrible a president as Jimmy Carter was, he (and other people with half a brain) saw those gas lines, put two and two together and realized we needed to decrease our oil dependence. And what happened? He was laughed out of office. Yes, maybe the sweater and turning down the thermostat was too much, but it was an attempt (as was installing solar panels on the White House which Reagan immediately took down) to shake us up and get us thinking about the future.<p>As usual, Americans displayed their ignorance and stupidity and called Carter a failure and ignored his plea and continued driving cars that got abysmal gas mileage while making no serious attempt to pursue alternative fuels.<p>Enter the late 90s and the SUV and high performance car craze. No one held our children hostage unless we bought a Durango or an Escalade. No one told us a puppy would be sacrificed unless we drove a BMW or a Lexus. Nope, that was all us eating up the slick advertising without giving a thought to what would happen if the gas crisis returned.<p>And now that Americans are hurting, what do we do? We look to someone else to help us. Which I find ironic because conservatives are always railing against government intervention and social programs that help the less fortunate. After all, if you can blame a guy standing on the street begging for change because he refuses to get a job, can't you also blame yourself for the gas situation because you were determined to have a vehicle that got 20 miles to the gallon? Why should the government bail us out for being so blissfully stupid all those years?<p>This is where conservatives lose all credibility about their anti-handout platform. When it comes to their bottom dollar, suddenly it's imperative that the government steps in to help.<p>With regards to Obama, as much as I no longer like the man, people who are ridiculing because of his "inflate your tires" remark need to hang themselves. Is it a naive belief that every American will go out tomorrow and perform gas saving maintenance on their car? Sure it is. But it puts the burden on us to try to clean up our own mess. Inflating your tires, performing a tune up and driving slower (this is the big one) will save us enough gas annually that we don't need offshore drilling. Seriously, how f'ing stupid are Americans? They complain about the price of gas but I don't see anyone easing their foot off the gas. Been on a highway lately? All those imbeciles are still going 10-20 miles over the speed limit.<p>Take some personal responsibility for a change and alter your driving habits. Conservatives are about personal responsibility, right?<p>Finally, the offshore drilling thing is a sham. Even if we started the process tomorrow, we're not going to see to see that oil hit our reserves for another 7 years. And although that alone might be enough to lower the cost of gas because of speculation, there are other factors at work that are sure to offset it. OPEC is sure to decrease their oil production if we begin to increase ours. Most importantly, it's not like the government is going to be drilling the oil. The oil companies will be in charge of that. That means that every barrel of oil produced is up for bids. Believe it or not, a lot of it will go to countries like China and India and how does that help us?<p>Offshore drilling is a band-aid and a poorly made one at that. If I believed for one second that the government or oil industry is sincerely pursing means of alternative energy that will produce results in the next decade, I might be willing to say go for it. But we didn't open our eyes 20 years ago when disaster hit, I'm not stupid enough to believe we're going to do it now.<p>We need real solutions, and if that means we have to hit rock bottom before we see the light, then so be it.<p>We didn't learn when we were hit with a shovel in the face, you gotta wonder what it'll take to turn this thing around.

I’ll take the roar of fifty thousand Harleys any day.” <p> Bikers in the crowd, who had arrived from around the country to partake in the massive outdoor party, revved their engines numerous times in support of the presumptive GOP nominee.

    Tyson Plant Drops Labor Day for Muslim Holiday

    by BringingSexyBack

    SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. — Workers at a Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Tennessee have opted to trade a paid Labor Day holiday for the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Fitr. <p> A recent 5-year contract approved by members of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union at the Shelbyville, Tenn., plant includes the change to accommodate Muslim workers. <p> "The negotiating committee made the holiday a top priority in contract talks," the union's Alabama and Mid-South Council Representative Randy Hadley said in a June statement. "And we were able to get management to commit to it." <p> The change, which does not affect the company's 118 other plants, exchanges Labor Day for the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. The new contract, negotiated last fall, also gives Muslim workers a prayer room. <p> "Eid al-Fitr is one of eight paid holidays for all Team Members covered by the contract, while Labor Day is not a paid holiday," Gary Mickelson, Tyson's media relations director, told the Shelbyville Times-Gazette. <p> The seven additional paid holidays are the employee's birthday, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas, Mickelson said. <p> Poultry Protest Tyson officials said that approximately 250 of the plant's 1,200 employees are Muslim Somalis. Many, the union said, entered the United States as political refugees, among them, Abdillahi Jama. <p> “This new contract is good because it allows me to work on the second shift and still pray when I need to,” Jama said in a press release. “It’s very important to us, and the Eid is one of our most sacred holidays. It shows how the union helps us.” <p> News of the change has prompted some anger on local Web message boards, with some messages urging readers to contact the AFL-CIO and boycott Tyson products. <p> The union's national president, Stuart Appelbaum, said it was the union's job "to stand up to win respect for every worker's right to practice their faith." <p>

    FOXSexpert: Finishing Too Soon? Here's Some Advice

    by BringingSexyBack

    By Yvonne K. Fulbright <P> It could have been the best sex of your life, except your romps aren’t lasting as long as you would like. An uninvited rapid responder has once again doused your bedroom blaze, with your sex life slowly going up in smoke. That once coveted climax is becoming anticlimactic, regularly drawing your passion play to a premature close. <P> With 25 percent of American men finishing too soon during sex, many couples find themselves confronting this sexual disorder at one time or another. Thankfully, this most common male complaint is one of the easiest sexual problems to solve. <P> Fixing the Problem <P> So what does one do about this debilitating sexual disorder? <P> First, be realistic in your expectations and stay positive. The typical lovemaking experience lasts 15 to 45 minutes, with 2 to 12 minutes of that time being actual intercourse, according to the authors of "Men’s Sexual Health." <P> Second, be wary of quick-fixes. Some resources will suggest remedies that most experts would not recommend. Mechanical devices, like a penile rubber ring or Velcro testicular band, usually don’t work. <P> Anesthetic products, namely over-the-counter desensitizing sprays and creams, should also be avoided for their numbing effect. Canadian researchers have found that while men using such products last a bit longer, they disliked the numb feeling. Their partners, too, complained of numb vulvas and vaginas. <P> Wearing two condoms, using a desensitizing cream, or thinking aversive thoughts are also not a good idea. These can be harmful for primarily two reasons: They reduce a male’s arousal, which can lead to difficulties with erection instead of response control, and these methods isolate the male from his lover, causing a strain on their bond with emotional isolation. <P> Third, commit yourself to learning to control your sexual response. Behavior therapy is by far the most effective way to tackle this problem. Self-training techniques involve the following major components: <P> 1. Staying mentally focused, while learning to relax your body; <P> 2. Getting in touch with your arousal, first during masturbatory activities and then with a partner; <P> 3. Learning to recognize your point of inevitability and “pulling back” before you surpass it; <P> 4. Developing PC (pubococcygeus or pelvic floor) muscle control; <P> 5. Temporarily ignoring your partner’s body and state of arousal, as not to get too excited. <P> — Squeeze Technique: This more advanced method involves a couple, practicing manual stimulation, stopping all movement when the man is about to reach his point of inevitability. One of the lovers then squeezes his penis, for 3 to 4 seconds, using the thumb and first or second forefingers at the very base of his penis or at the ridge under his penis head. This maneuver snuffs out his desire to finish, and needs to be repeated several times during genital stimulation in mastering holding off.

    MyFoxDetroit <P> To quote John McEnroe, "you can't be serious!" <P> The John McCain camp is walking a tightrope with its campaign ad strategy right now. <P> One ad made for TV and the web drops the notion that Barack Obama is just a celebrity, kind of like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. He's famous, but is he ready to lead? <P> Another ad used designed for use for the internet only, but don't kid yourself, it's getting plenty of play on news shows across the country. This ad uses Obama's own words, albeit obviously out of context to paint himself as "God's chosen one." The ad crescendos with a clip of Charlton Heston playing Moses... "behold his mighty hand." <P> Interesting the former NRA head being used for a parody, but that's another story. Give the McCain camp credit for getting lots of TV exposure without having to pay for it. <P> Here's the thing: Playing ads like these is risky business. Think about it, if the voter is already planning to cast his vote for you, this ad serves no purpose other than providing a laugh. If the voter is planning to vote for Obama, they are simply offended, emboldened in their cause and probably will have a laugh. <P> If you're going after the undecided, my guess is you're going after the undecided imbecile, because anyone with any sense sees though these shameless ads that offer no substance, just great video editing. Planting the message "is he ready to lead" has merit, but needs to come out of dealing with the issues, not personalities. <P> I think the current ads are ridiculous, and if I'm and undecided, you just lost my vote. The McCain camp needs to stop listening to talk radio and the ditto heads. You already have their vote. Get serious, work the issues. You're out your league when it comes to parody.

    Anchorite's Real Problem With Obama Is That He's Black

    by LaserPants

    Ironic coming from a Jew who may or may not have experienced similar forms of bigotry himself, but who's people, as a whole, certainly have. Perhaps its one of those things where the victim of bigotry needs to feel better about himself by being racist against others? But, I'll let anchorite explain his true feelings about Obama for all to see in this outrageously racist quote:<br><br> by anchorite Jun 4th, 2008 12:29:20 AM<br><br> "I've mentioned it for years on here. Don't pretend like I'm just coming out now.<br><br> And as for performing the Jeffersons theme in lieu of Hail to the Chief, Obama said he's an agent of change, right? That would be a change, all right.<br><br> Also, giving the White House a more appropriate paint job might be in order. And the spinner rims on Air Force One are just a little bling to let the rest of the world know that the new kid on the block isn't a square. <br><br> And have the Trinity Church Choir sing at Obama's inauguration. He wants to be a unifier, right? He needs to help heal his church after the burden he's placed on them. I think it would be a brilliant move to reconnect with Trinity Church. What a way to inspire their congregation. And the country.<br><br> O-Ba-Ma! O-Ba-Ma! O-Ba-Ma!"<br><br> See? Racist. Because for Anchorite, ALL black people are raging sterotypes -- either George Jefferson's, blinged-out gangstas, or hysterical religious folk. I doubt Anchorite is even aware of anything Obama has said in his speeches because he immediately shuts down as soon as he sees a man with dark skin. Again, the irony of it is astounding.

    Our current president (and his pappy) are in bed with the House of Saud. You do realize just how much of the Bush family fortune is owed to the Middle East right? And it's not just the Bushes but god knows how many other politicians on both sides of the aisle who have the Saudis to thank for the bed full of money they roll around in at night. So our politicians are talking out of both sides of their mouth. If you think they are looking to end dependence on foreign oil, you are clearly mistaken.<p>Besides, here's another factoid that no one is talking about. The oil companies already own huge tracts of oil rich land here, in America, and aren't currently drilling on them. And I'm not talking about Alaska but areas where no one would protest drilling.<p>And you know, we already drank the Kool Aid in 1979. We experienced gas lines and moaned until the martians could hear us and what did we do? Absolutely nothing. As usual, we did not learn from our mistakes. This time won't be any different.<p>As soon as we allow offshore drilling, we'll largely ignore alternative sources as we did before. In 30-40 years we'll be right back where we are now, still as dependent on foreign oil as ever, and demanding that we open up Alaska.<p>I'm sorry, but this is one of those scenarios where we have to bite the bullet for our past stupidity and start working on mass transit and high fuel efficiency tomorrow.<p>It's funny, you say "I guaran-damn-tee you that the oil companies could get oil out of the ground way faster than seven years if they had the green light." The same applies to mass transit. This country was rolling B-52 bombers off the assembly line at a rate of one every hour (I think). You're telling me we couldn't start rolling buses and commuter trains at lightning speed as well? Not only will that get people to drive less but it'll put a lot of folks to work.<p>Sorry, dude, offshore drilling is another Band Aid solution in a long line of quick fixes. We need real change and we need it tomorrow. This country put a man on the moon. We can do anything. And we can make mass transit system to be proud of in a few years if we start right now.

    And I'm not mad at the oil companies for their profits

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    This is a free market after all. People find this hard to believe but I'm not angry at big oil for strong arming the auto industry to make fuel inefficient cars or keeping every politician in their pocket. I'm angry at them for using third world countries as their toilet. What Chevron is doing in Ecuador is one of the most vile things I've ever heard and our wretched politicians (on both sides) are going to help Chevron bury the lawsuit. They should all be killed.<p>Americans should stop blaming the oil companies. They bought Hummers and Jeeps and Yukons and never gave a thought to what would happen when gas hit $4.00 a gallon.<p>And I don't want anyone painting me as a bleeding heart Liberal who wants government to regulate fast food. I know we have an obesity crisis to deal with but that isn't the way.<p>And then there's this guy:<p>"A death row inmate scheduled for execution says he's too fat to be put to death, claiming executioners would have trouble finding his veins and that his weight could diminish the effectiveness of one of the lethal injection drugs. Lawyers for Richard Cooey argue in a federal lawsuit that Cooey -- 5-feet-7 and 267 pounds -- had poor veins when he faced execution five years ago and the problem has been worsened by weight gain. Cooey, 41, is sentenced to die for raping and murdering two young women in 1986. His execution is scheduled for October 14."<p>Can't find a vein? No problem. I can find a .357 Magnum and a wall for him to stand against.

    Here is a direct quote from Anchorite himself:<br><br> by anchorite Jun 4th, 2008 12:29:20 AM<br><br> "I've mentioned it for years on here. Don't pretend like I'm just coming out now.<br><br> And as for performing the Jeffersons theme in lieu of Hail to the Chief, Obama said he's an agent of change, right? That would be a change, all right.<br><br> Also, giving the White House a more appropriate paint job might be in order. And the spinner rims on Air Force One are just a little bling to let the rest of the world know that the new kid on the block isn't a square.<br><br> And have the Trinity Church Choir sing at Obama's inauguration. He wants to be a unifier, right? He needs to help heal his church after the burden he's placed on them. I think it would be a brilliant move to reconnect with Trinity Church. What a way to inspire their congregation. And the country.<br><br> O-Ba-Ma! O-Ba-Ma! O-Ba-Ma!"<br><br> See? its not that he doesn't Obama for his policies, he doesn't like him because of his race. See, to Anchorite, ALL black people are either George Jefferson (the "uppity negro" stereotype), a gangsta rapper (see his reference to Ludacris above -- he sees no difference between the two), and hysterical church going folk. Why does he see all black people as fitting into these narrowly defined stereotypes? Because he is a a RAGING racist and doesn't realize it.

    Mortgage lending crisis and nanny state bullshit

    by Darth_Inedible

    You can blame that at least partially on the previous three Administrations competing over how high they could boost the homeownership rate in this country. To boost that stat they needed to find a way to get a shitload of people into houses that they couldn't afford, which is why the lenders were leaned on and regs were loosened... The current crisis is absolutely the result of a misguided govt effort at compassion followed by humans doing what they do naturally, exploiting loopholes and flipping the shit out of the market until it was utterly destroyed. This is exactly what happened in the years after WWI, with things like the gov't supercharging the wheat markets which lead to the dust bowl and ultimately the Great Depression.

    Look here

    by Just_John

    I'm a former U.S. Marine, and I served as an 0231 (Intel) for 5 years. I've fought with honor in Iraq, and I'm writing this from Kabul, Afghanistan as a military contractor. I don't give a shit whether you support Bush or not, and I didn't vote for him. But I'll say this: how many of you could serve as President? Do you have any idea of what that must entail? Could any of you calling Bush a "dick-sucking faggot" or whatnot lead the most powerful country in the free world, lead your people through planes striking buildings, planes striking the SEAT OF YOUR GOVERNMENT, anthrax scares, terrorist threats (which, mind you, have existed LONG before 9/11....pick up a fucking book), public ridicule for doing something you sincerely believe in, and KNOW that half of the people you're leading though this will hate your fucking guts for it? He knew Iraq would be an unpopular war and most likely taint his legacy and he did it anyway. That takes balls I'm willing to bet a lot of you don't have. But I don't take exception to people hating the President; men like myself have bled the fucking ground red to give that right. What I do take exception to is the ignorant comment that "the Iraqis were better off before we came". That's the kind of ignorant crap I've come to expect from the trust-fund babies suckling at the teat of CNN, who've never served their country yet act like they're experienced political analysts. Wipe your fucking noses, kids. Ramadi was a hellhole in 2004, and yet now, in 2008, the Marines are running marathons w/o kevlar in the streets. We're providing food, water and utilities, al-Sadr is now making concessions to the Government, and AQ is being shunned by both the Sunnis and the Shiites. I could go on, but my point is this: I've read some of the most ignorant shit I've ever come across in this talkback, and what scares me about it is that I'm assuming most of you are adults (physically, at least). Whatever. Props to the guys looking at things objectively. This is a forum, there's my piece. Oh, one more thing....I normally don't do this sort of thing, but hey, when in Rome, right? You Oliver Stone lovers are aware of this qoute, yes? "FARC is fighting back as best it can and grabbing hostages is the fashion in which they can finance themselves and try to achieve their goals, which are difficult. They're a peasant army; I see them as a Zapata-like army. I think they are heroic to fight for what they believe in and die for it, as was Castro in the hills of Cuba." That's Oliver Stone in 2005 talking about the FARC. If you don't know what the FARC is, here's the U.N. (as in nations other than America) definition of the FARC: 2005 United Nations report: responsible for "grave" human rights violations, including "murders of protected persons, torture, rape and hostage-taking against women, returnees, boys and girls, and ethnic groups." Just thought I'd point out what a dipshit Oliver Stone is.

I think it's pretty damn clear at this point that Bush never had any regard what the public thought or wanted. That's not bravery, it's arrogance and stupidity. And I'm sure the thousands of civilian Iraqis that died becasue of our illegal invasion might have something to say about whether they are better off now without Saddam. If they weren't wormfood that is. and al Qaeda is being shunned by Sunnis and Shiites alike because the country is being inundated with them when they weren't there before we came.

As for Dickblood, yes, I do agree that AQ in Iraq (Or Tawhid al-Jihad in the Land of the Two Rivers, which is what it really is) sprung up in response to our invasion. I'll also ask you to remember that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and that extremist Wahabi elements will use any means, methods or excuses to further the cause of the global Islamic Ummah (a global Caliphate).

    (WASHINGTON) — President Bush chastised Democrats on Saturday for refusing to allow a vote on whether to lift the federal ban on offshore oil drilling before lawmakers departed for their summer recess. <P> "To reduce pressure on prices, we need to increase the supply of oil, especially oil produced here at home," Bush said in his weekly radio address. It was the fourth time this week that he has called for Congress to end the drilling restrictions off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. <P> Bush acknowledged it would be years before any of the oil beneath the offshore waters could be pumped, but he said "lifting the ban would create new opportunities for American businessmen." <P> "But the leaders of the Democratic Congress have refused to allow a vote" on whether the drilling moratoriums should be lifted, Bush complained. <P> Most energy experts and the government's own research agency at the Energy Department have said drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf, which is now off-limits, would have no impact on current gasoline prices and probably would have none for years. <P> Congressional Democrats have argued that oil companies already have large areas of federal land and waters where they can drill for oil, especially in Alaska and off its coast. <P> Bush in his radio remarks also urged Congress to end restrictions on developing shale oil on federal lands in the West and to allow drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. <P> Bush called these actions "vital steps to help reduce pressure on gas prices," although none of the actions would produce any new oil for years.

    Like other kids the world over, Middle Eastern children have long fantasized about superheroes battling injustice in American cities or fighting beasts in Japan. Five years ago, they got some champions of their own to cheer on when Kuwait-born businessman Naif Al-Mutawa created a new breed of superheroes endowed with Muslim traits and virtues. Now Mutawa is on an even greater mission: taking those same Islamic characters around the world. <P> The 99, a comic-book series based on characters that each personify one of the 99 qualities that the Koran attributes to God, met early resistance in places like Saudi Arabia. Local authorities worried that the series might mock Islam. But after Mutawa guaranteed that he would remain respectful of religion and won backing from a major Islamic bank, the series took off around the Gulf. Initially given away for free with Arabic versions of Marvel comics (the license for which Mutawa owns in the region), The 99 is now a stand-alone success, with some 500,000 copies given away and sold across the region in the past two years. <P> Now Mutawa wants to spread the word farther. The first of six planned theme parks based on The 99 will open in Kuwait this October, and Mutawa hopes that an animated television show will hit airwaves around the world by late 2010. Working with writers such as Fabian Nicieza, who wrote for the Power Rangers and X-Men comics, and a group of managers including an ex–Rolling Stone publisher and Marvel's former marketing chief, Mutawa believes The 99 can succeed in non-Islamic markets. "Our characters are appealing to kids across the world," he says. "We have been able to sell licenses to India, Bangladesh, France, Spain, the U.K., the United States and Canada."

    (WASHINGTON) — Solid margins have powered Barack Obama to a 6 percentage point lead over John McCain in the presidential race, according to a poll released Tuesday. Obama is ahead of his Republican rival 47 percent to 41 percent, The Associated Press-Ipsos poll showed. The survey was taken after the Democratic senator from Illinois had returned from a trip to Middle Eastern and European capitals, and during a week that saw the two camps clash over which had brought race into a campaign in which Obama is striving to become the first African-American president. Independent Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr both won support from less than 5 percent of the registered voters surveyed. When people were asked who they would support if Nader and Barr were not on the ballot, Obama's lead over McCain was virtually unchanged. The poll showed a huge Democratic advantage when voters ponder which party they would like to see control Congress next year. Democrats were favored over Republicans 53 percent to 35 percent, underscoring the mountainous disadvantage McCain and other GOP candidates are facing in the Nov. 4 voting.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Iraq is raking in more money from oil exports than it is spending, amassing a projected four-year budget surplus of up to $80 billion, U.S. auditors reported Tuesday. <p> Leading members of Congress, noting that Washington is paying for reconstruction in Iraq, expressed outrage at the assessment. One called the findings "inexcusable." <p> "We should not be paying for Iraqi projects while Iraqi oil revenues continue to pile up in the bank, including outrageous profits from $4-a-gallon gas prices in the U.S.," said Sen. Carl Levin, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "We should require that U.S. taxpayers be reimbursed for the cost of large projects." <p> Baghdad had a $29 billion budget surplus between 2005 to 2007. With the price of crude roughly doubling in the past year, Iraq's surplus for 2008 is expected to run between $38 billion and $50 billion, according to a report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office. <p> The United States has put about $48 billion toward reconstruction since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, auditors reported. About $23 billion of that was spent on the oil and electricity industries, water systems and security. <p> Iraq spent $3.9 billion on those sectors from 2005 through April 2008, according to the GAO, the investigative arm of Congress. The ongoing fighting there, a shortage of trained staff and weak controls have made it difficult for the Iraqi government to spend its surplus on needed projects, the agency's report concluded. <p> Levin, a Michigan Democrat, has been an outspoken critic of the slow progress of reconstruction and an advocate of a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. His criticism Tuesday was echoed by Sen. John Warner, a Virginia Republican who is the former chairman and now a leading member of Levin's committee. <p> "Despite Iraq earning billions of dollars in oil revenue in the past five years, U.S. taxpayer money has been the overwhelming source of Iraq reconstruction funds," Warner said in a joint statement with Levin. "It is time for the sovereign government of Iraq, using its revenues, expenditures and surpluses, to fully assume the responsibility to provide essential services and improve the quality of life for the Iraqi people." <p>

    New Poll: Americans desire only one qualification for President

    by AntoniusBloc

    A new poll out shows that a majority of americans now believe that the only qualification necessary to be President is to be a liberal. Says one likely voter, "That's really all you need. Yeah, W was governor for the largest state, so what? What I look for are really arrogant liberals who hate Bush because he's religious and doesn't listen to public opnion polls. I think the best president would be someone who spends a lot of time posting messages on a website created by some fat guy who pretends he is passionate about film, but has obviously sold out a long time ago. The more time they spend posting their meaningful and deep messages the better. I don't care how many times they have been proven dead wrong on just about every issue. These message-posting liberals are real people, a peaceful people, and loving, they even love dictators...but they hate who they are supposed to hate: G.W. Bush, and that's all you really need to be the leader of the free world. I'm sure they will also remind us to inflate our tires and get tune ups to prevent the end of the world. They will also make peace with the terrorists, because they will talk and negotiate with them, just like Batman should have negotiated with the Joker. But what am I thinking? they understand, that's not real life, those characters are pretend."

    Obsessed with image?

    by Samus Aran

    Someone earlier said that this poster was about how politicians are more interested in how they appear to public and how they are perceived than the merit of their decisions. Well I ask both you and Oliver Stone, do you honestly think that this is the personality of Bush? If you honestly think he cares more about his image than the decisions he makes then you are not paying attention to what is going on in the world at all. One major problem with Bush which makes him so unpopular is that he almost completely doesn't care about what the general public thinks about him. He doesn't hardly EVER try to defend his policies, he just does them, and basically says, to hell with all of us. I say this as a conservative. I almost admire how little he cares what we think- it somewhat shows me that he really does believe in what he is doing. But by no means is he the personality that this stupid poster seems to accuse him of. Anyone who thinks this poster is an accurate portrayal of Bush's personality doesn't understand Bush at all. Now I don't know for sure one way or another if what he has done in Iraq was for the very best. I used to support the war, but I have probably been listening to so much griping and bitching for so long that I to may have become weary of the war, and even question it's necessity. However, the arguments I always hear against it from liberals are almost always based on overly idealistic and unrealistic concepts and on clearly false accusations, so I am reluctant to agree with them based on their arguments. I don't know what is the best action to have taken, but I pay very close attention to the news and politics, and I have to believe that I am more well informed than 90% of the liberal public moaning about republicans- and so I don't think they know what is best for America any better than I do. I don't know if I can trust republicans- they probably don't have my best interests at heart all the time or perhaps hardly ever. But I am certain that I can't ever trust democrats- from their own mouth, and more specifically from Barack Obama's mouth I have heard him clearly state that he is far less concerned with the health of the economy than "what is fair". This is the general concept of democrats- they genuinely do not care about the health of the economy. They claim to only care about what is fair to the poor. That comes as a great irony since my logic tells me that if the economy suffers- the rich do NOT suffer hardly at all, but the poor and middle class suffer by far the most- so much that if the economy suffers enough- the poor and middle class may suffer all the way into starvation. In the meantime the rich just might have to make a slight adjustment on their lifestyle- no big deal. Democrats do not care about the economy- they do not have the best interest of the poor at heart. Liberals are seperate from democrats, and perhaps the general liberal public has good intentions, but their philosophies seem to be based on faulty logic- because their logic is based on unrealistic idealism. Stop worrying about what is fair, and worry about the health of the economy. Neither Democrats nor Republicans can be trusted- so look towards who has the most logical approach to solving our problems- however unfair it may be.

    by Samus Aran

    I never at any point considered the Iraq war to be a retaliation against Al Qaeda. This is the weird thing that liberals always seem to mix up their history with. I remember clearly the argument that was laid out by Colin Powell and the Bush administration leading up teh Iraq invasion- and at no time did they ever suggest that it had something to do with 911. There were seperate issues going on in the world at the time. 911 was not the only one. I had wanted our country to invade depose Sadamm Husein since 1990- and I imagine that was a major goal of our millitary since then as well. Bush did in fact exploit the attitude of an angry America recently wounded by 911 to maximize support for an Iraq invasion, but 911 was not the cause of the Iraq War, perhaps though it served as a catalyst. Yes I think it seems reasonable to get rid of a madman despot in control of a potentially dangerous country. But this war perhaps has cost us so much money that I'm not sure anymore if it is worth it. We definately accomplished an important goal- the only question is if the costs were too great for that goal- the answer is not so cut and dry. It seems to me that if the men in the millitary believe that the cost was worth it- then I would have to agree with them. They understand the situation way better than most people. On another point, people who want a quick pullout now seem to be either heartless or stupid- because I believe such a pullout would mirror our pullout of vietnam- at the cost of significant hundreds of thousands if not millions of inoccent iraqi lives at the hands of powerful organized militants. So no WoodyStiffer, I don't think the Iraq invasion had anything do do with 911, and nobody EVER said it did. Don't rewrite history please, I remember what happened.

    the "I hate libs" comment was 1/10th's exasperation, 9/10th's troll... never any excuse for trolling.

    I don't want to get involved in an Iraq argument, but you should know that the entirety of the US expenses on the Iraq War is roughly what the US spends on Social Security and Medicaid/Medicare annually, and we invaded Iraq back in 2003.

    It's OK, Stevie Grant

    I hate conservatives. They are hateful, violent, greedy, selfish people who despise the weak, the meek and the poor. There is no compassion in their heart for those who aren't in their inner circle. They pretend at caring. Bush himself admitted this when he coined the term "compassionate conservative" which implies that compassion isn't actually inherent to the movement. Of course, that's all too obvious.

    If you really think the Bush administration didn't link 9/11 to Al Qaeda, you've been very selectively watching the news. There are numerous video clips of them doing just that. But this just confirm my assertion that idiots are the only ones who defend Bush and his motives. And you are one great big fucking idiot.

    I don't disagree. Although, I would very different adjectives... "hateful, violent, greedy, selfish people who despise the weak" are apparently the main ones who think that it is bullshit that that less than half of every tax payer dollar that goes to entitlement programs... actually goes to the "entitled." But, by all means, continue feeling good about yourself for saving those disadvantaged [although there's been no macro impact despite the single most expensive undertaking in the entirety of humanity (ie, the war on poverity)]. Yeah, by all means, feel good about yourself for voting socialist... nevermind the majority of every tax dollar is consumed by the gov. employees (let alone the rampant abuse of entitlement programs). Obviously, the problem isn't tax payers wanting anything resembling honesty or efficiency... it's that some people call bullshit on the wastefulness and malpractice of the system. But, by all means, continue being a self-important tool, Obama 08!!!

    and Akira,

    you just posted that the Bush administration didn't link 9/11 to Al Qaeda. Literally. I'm assuming that you meant that that the simpleton retard or the evil genius Bush (given the rant) implied that Osama ran Iraq and that's why we went to war with Iraq; and, despite the constant liberal rants regarding this subject: I followed the subject closely and (and was over 15 from the get go). The polls, liberal consensus, and such regarding this issue have made me lose a lot of faith in our nation. Let me know when you get your driver's license.
