<br>From freeinternetpress/FIP:<br>http://media.freeinternetpress.com/adriannastase.ro/F_16_a.avi<br>Transcript from the video:<br>[Bush speaking]<br> Here we are talking about, elections in Romania. <br> A person standing for election, in Romania, and the United States President, are now talking about what it means to campaign. A conversation which would not have been taking place, uh 20 years ago.<br>Let me ask you this way, I am going to win. And the prime minister told me he is going to win."<br><br>*FIP:<br>I'm wondering if Mr Bush got paid for making campaign for them, the same guys called American administration "cannibals" (the former romanian president 2000-2004 called them canibals in a romanian newspaper durring the communist regime) <br> Also same guys (party) who in 1989, after the Berlin Wall fell, said "la dracu cu americanii" - that mean "to the hell with americans"<br> I'm willing to believe Mr Bush did all this because those guys were very friendly and they agree with Iraq invasion. Anyway they supplement troops in Iraq.<br> Maybe in few years we will not be surprised seeing Mr. Bush along with Saddam Hussein on the same table and helping on his election.<br> It's unusual for an "outsider" to be used in a election campain, trying to influence people with the pro-American sentiments (Romania being one of the higher pro-American sentimets in eastern europe).<br> Also, I am wondering the recall of American ambassador from Bucharest after the oposition won the election (few weeks later) could be just a simple coincidence? (Jack Dyer Crouch was recalled after just 6 or 7 months of work there) The former American ambassador (Michael Guest) were very criticized against the regime (freedom of speech, corruption, communist methods in administration). He was recalled few months before the election maybe just because the Bush administration didn't want the regime to be changed in Romania. but seens like their operation wasn't a success.<br> If you would like to read more about this, you can search on http://www.pressreview.ro about those guys.<br>Editor: I'm always amazed at Mr. Bush's, um, speaking, style. It's almost like he doesn't have a script writer, and his voice coach was William Shatner. At least Shatner got his lines right, and made sense, even if his pauses were all in the wrong places. :)<br> I too find it weird that Bush campaigned for a former communist. <br><br>voanews:<br>Romania has about 800 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and has built strong ties with the United States in recent years. President Bush visited Bucharest in November 2002 and he remembered the large crowd that turned out to welcome him in a rainstorm.<br>"It was one of the most amazing moments of my presidency, to be speaking in the square, the very square where [the Romanian strongman] Ceausescu gave his last speech," Mr. Bush said.<br>[color:green]Mr. Bush noted that a rainbow appeared in the sky that day. He called it a sign of the power of freedom.</font color=green><br><br>>>>------------><br>The joke is on the taxpayers w/this clown...<br>woe is this land. Yeah, not this generation but don't hold your breath.<br><br>
Yes, well, the Romanians usually go to the highest bidder. The corruption in the GVT is more visible and easier manipulated than in countries such as the US. Bush shows up with a bag full of $$ and says sign here. The Romanians sign without ever reading the contracts.<br><br>Romania is a good place to create bases for the Americans. They don't care about the 800 troups or any of that. They just want to store their precious "non-mass destruction" weapons somewhere and Romania is the perfect spot.<br><br>Romania has grown a lot since the revolution and the fall of Communism. The rich got richer and the poor got poorer. Good thing that they went out of communism, so that now they can have kids living on the streets and parents commiting suicide because they can't provide their families. <br><br>Don't worry, at least Bush is there to help the one he wants to win. <br><br>_________________________________________<br>Just a different kinda geek...
