<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>The president strode away from reporters looking <br>annoyed after one said he appeared "off his game". <p><hr></blockquote><p>Really? Is that how it happened? A reporter told Bush he "appeared to be off his game" and Bush just ... strode away annoyed .. Hmm .. <br><br><blockquote>Q -- in your statement this morning with President Hu, you seemed a little off your game. You seemed to hurry through your statement and there was a lack of enthusiasm --<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: When? Here, right now?<br><br>Q No, this morning, with President Hu. Was something bothering you? Were you tired?<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: Have you ever heard of jet lag?<br><br>Q Yes, sir.<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: Well, good. That answers your question.<br><br>Q There was nothing he said, I mean in the meeting?<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: No, not at all. Listen, the relationship with China is a good, vibrant, strong relationship. And we have frank discussions, and that's what you want at my level of government. You want to be able to sit down with somebody, and say, look, here are my concerns.<br><br>I always say that the relationship between America and China is an important relationship. This is a booming economy. This is a -- China is a big presence in Asia. And it's very vital for the United States to have a relationship where I can sit down and say, look, the trade -- the trade policy must take into consideration your currency, must take into consideration our desire to sell you beef, must take into consideration intellectual property rights. And I can do that in such a way that he doesn't say, I'm tired of listening to you. It's a -- it's an important relationship.<br><br>We have -- we're working together with North Korea. The leader in North Korea has -- must abandon his nuclear weapons programs in a verifiable fashion. The Chinese understand that and have accepted that position. The fact that China and the United States can work on this issue as equal partners is important for the stability of this region and the world.<br><br>In other words, my point to you is, is that we've got a very vibrant relationship. I don't know what I sounded like during my discussion. As you know, I don't spend a lot of time analyzing myself, and obviously, you do. But --<br><br>Q We have a lot of time on our hands, Mr. President. (Laughter.)<br><br>THE PRESIDENT: Yes, you do. (Laughter.) But I am pleased that I am in a -- I am in a position to be able to explain to President Hu, as clearly as I can, my concerns and my appreciation for different aspects of our relationship.<br><br>Thank you all, very much.<br><br>END 6:34 P.M.

Our only chance with the Chinese is that they become westernized ASAP. Get them fat and happy sitting around watching the boob tube and eating Pizza Hut. Then they will be too self obsorbed to care about us.<br><br>
We (I mean "the world") can't afford to have a couple of billion Chinese citizens adopt the attitude towards life that we in the US have come to call our own.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

Yeah no shiite... bears repeating agin !!<br><br> Since when has George W Bush allowed any dissent within half a mile of George W Bush? <br><br>he won't even let dissenters in the same Fscking room the Chicken-(censored)!<br><br>he .... should give lecture of freedom of speech or dissent!!??<br>after saying anyone who disagreed with ANY thing he said or did before and after Iraq was unpatriotic,, Un American ??<br><br>he shouldn't give anyone lectures on anything to do with freedom.... <br>well maybe the freedom to Torture !! <br><br>since when does he respect human rights... Gitmo, Abu Gharb, secret CIA detention camps all over "creation"... no charges, no day in court, Nothing... that's Human rights??<br><br>Come on !! what a Chicken-(censored) azz !<br><br>Chinese are probably laughing at him to death !!<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
Yeah, everywhere Bush goes they have to clear it out because of the indignation that has built up against this man and his administration.<br><br>Let Pennsylvania Ave fill up with people "expressing" their views, they'd probably rampage and break into the WH within the hour. He never had much to say about people's right to assemble in the other countries he has visited where they showed up in the thousands and thousands to express their animosity and outrage. Does he see this irony for himself, cuz none of his aids is going to point it out for him.<br><br>We are what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

I think the best/weirdest part is immediately after he can't get the door open. He sort of just stops and snaps to attention. He's not really sure what to do next, I mean, this isn't scripted!!<br><br>Its like he is utterly helpless, and resigns to stand perfectly still at attention with arms at his side until someone tells him what to do next. <br><br><br><br><br><embed src="http://weinertlab.kicks-ass.org/~hunter/temp/bushdoor.mov" autoplay="false" width="365" height="290"></embed><br><br>
