Bush freaks out over abysmal EU poll numbers; invokes 9/11

If you can't take the heat, stop fanning the flames.
Although diplomatic relations between the United States and Europe have improved significantly since the rift over the Iraq war in 2003, Bush remains widely unpopular in Europe. A recent poll found that many Europeans consider the United States a threat to global stability.

"That's absurd," Bush snapped when asked, in general terms, about the poll results.

His irritation grew when an Austrian reporter read him some specific poll numbers.

"Look, people didn't agree with my decision on Iraq, and I understand that.

For Europe, September the 11th was a moment; for us, it was a change of thinking," he said, as his jaw muscles twitched in irritation . . .
He doesn't give a flying sh*t . . .
"People can say what they want to say. But leadership requires making hard choices based upon principle."
Nevermind that Bush wouldn't know a principle if it hit him in the nose, Schuessel crouched down to pay his respects to Boy blunder, so-called leader of the free world.
Schuessel jumped to his guest's defense, invoking memories of World War II and America's post-war help for Europe to rebuild. He warned Europeans that they should not be "naive" about the threat of terrorism.

"Don't forget, I was born in 1945. ... I will never forget that America fed us," Schuessel said. "I think it's grotesque to say that America is a threat to the peace in the world compared with North Korea, Iran, other countries."
Now, THAT'S what I call absurd.

Hey look qrswave, I'll have u know Mr. card-sharp, president of ours, "the Decider," is an official front-man (and potential fall-guy) for the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations--see TheNewAmerican.com for best expo).

Bush II takes these things seriously, okay?--and I'm sure he wishes u would too. CFR-"Bilderberg" does seem pretty happy with Orwellian "perpetual war" going so nicely and well.

We just need a large-scale and seriously in-depth cultural rationalisticism to take place. A little bit of inductive logic wouldn't be bad either.

CONCLUSION: A great subjectivistic conspiracy would be worst of all. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Schuessel, thisn't isn't WW II - Drunk on brandy and an affection for old BW war-flicks? Over here, Schuessel, yoo-hoo...2006....Warning Europeans they mustn't be naive about "terrorism"? Yes, Schuessel, Europeans are only a people with a thousand years of intermittent ethnic strife and its attendant terrorism. Mere pups. What's a millenia of experience compared to the genius of a handful of overweight weasles in the Dubya admin.

You know them:
The Straussians whose "war without end" was written many years before 9/11 and who claimed the noble "myth" of democracy would be used to foment it, needing only a "catalysing event" to intitiate. Wow. They got one on 9/11. Who woulda guessed....And you, dubya, if we play along for a minute,tell us again what's so great about 'democracy" that its worth shoving down the throats of others on the end of bunker-busters? Afterall, dubya, democracy put you lying sacks-of-excrement in power, didn't it?

Good to see you up and moving. I live in Europe and I always make it a point to wear some version of my 9/11 t-shirt. I'm a walking anti bush post card. Where I live is rich and conservative so there isn't the usual opposition. But even these people think Bush is a killer clown.

Bush is right, he's got the tough job of making decisions based on principles. It's just a shame that his principles don't include honesty or having a conscience.

So many actions done based on 9/11. Tap all American phones, because of 9/11. Cage Protestors, because of 9/11. Force book outlets to stop selling "America Deceived" by E.A. Blayre III, because of 9/11. Start illegal Wars, because of 9/11. Bomb Iran... wait we'll link that to 9/11 soon.

Support indy media.
Last link (before Google Books pulls it, because of 9/11):

Don't you know why Bu$h was so pissy (lol)! The media isn't suppossed to ask him questions. Videotape his dog sure, talk about Laura being a teacher sure (but not the part about her being a murder), and don't forget the fake photo op with smiling soldiers (or better yet the fake photo op with smiling black people, while forcing all the black people to go to the back door entrance if they want to eat).

Visible, sorry you live with a bunch of conservative nutjobs. Guess where I live: in the middle of the United States...and by the way did I mention that someone (not me) changed the stop signs to say stop bu$h. Very cool, love the graffiti.

Bush hides behind this war because its the only thing keeping him from facing the truth and being held accountable for his obvious war crime by any definition of the word. This war is his security from an American public that would impeach if only he wasn't a war-president needing support. He fights his war with lies, which is his demise beacause reality always wins in the end. America didn't change after 9/11, but its being shoved down our throats the lie that "everything's different now". Not really. Same old Bullsh#@t.

I wonder if using the magick 9/11 invocation works as well on Europeans as it does on the sheeple? It's Bush's go-to when all else fails.

Bush the twice selected, so obviously never truely elected, President.
No wonder most Europeans won't buy into his illegitimate lies.

IMO he is not a democrat, he and his party are feeding that 'anti-democracy' (they actively do everything they can to limit the franchaise) and he leads a very powerful country that has lost it's way as a democracy (50%+ won't even vote and the rest seem to tolerate what is going on).

No wonder we find all of that scary.

50%+ won't even vote I think a lot of people don't vote because the two main parties are the same. People realize that the Democraps are a fake opposition party. Worse than that this wake opposition party has been feeding the people lies about the true opposition party the Green Party. In fact, at this point if it wasn't for the Green Party I would see no reason to waste gas money going to vote. Also though keep in mind that the voting systems are rigged. It is less important that people vote, than that they yell and scream about the injustices in the world.

10 reasons why uncle sham sucks big time,

but I think this observation by amnesty international says it all, …………….
“Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed or "disappeared", at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame.
[Amnesty International, 1996]

This hotrrible man is my enemy !

And let me be frank, I despise the ideology of fundamentalist Islam (as I despise fundamentalist christianity) and in no way desire to appease terrorism.

But I wonder if Europe doesn't have more common ground with moderate, modern Islamists than with these corporate / neoconservative / pentagon-hawk rightwing nutjobs that rule the US thse days. That kind of people are exporting a fascist globalist system that is ruining my standard of living.

I call upon European leaders to stop seeking appeasement with the US bullies and stick to their own course. Find strategic alliances in the middle east, foster enlightenment in a climate of respect and democracy, sustain a decent wellfare state with respect for all and build a mutual defense.

And while we're at it, set up seperate internet backbones !

We have much more to gain by weaning ourselves away from this atlantic axis of evil. Let's turn away from old "cold war" US. Let's turn away from copyright-fascism. Let's turn away from a nation of Paris Hiltons and White Trash raving guntoting lunatics. Let's embrace and become tighter friends with the new world, such as China, India, Japan, the Pacific, Russia.

And let's wean ourselves from this addiction to oil !

And most of all - get rid of these damn dollars. I know a ponti scheme when I see one. The dollar is one giant scham.

The US is a stack of cards. Cards smelling of greed, sweat, abuse, exploitation, coercion, gunpowder and cocaine. One shove and that house of cards comes tumbling down.

Let the US be well out of the way before it comes undone.

This was the second time within weeks that Bush described 9/11 as "just a moment" for Europe.
This comment offensive, wrong and explains why Bush is losing the few remaining supporters in Europe he has rather than getting any support for this policies. I blogged about it as well. I also explain why that journalist does not correctly quote the poll in question.
