Kabul or Baghdad

Kabul or Baghdad - 10/21/04 12:50 PM

The President's staff says he's taking a day off Saturday at Crawford. With 10 days to go, that sounds a little fishy. I bet he's going for the photo-op handshake with Karzai. I think a fly-in to Baghdad Airport would be too risky since it's already being talked about, so I think he'll visit the troops in Afghanistan.<br><br>Better that than another attempt at mountain biking. <br><br>

I'm betting on a manicure, facial and roast duckling al'orange. You know, before he "reports for duty", fly's in and proclaims "mission accomplished". No, wait, that would be "declaring victory early" and "defending it later".<br><br><br><br><br>got to let your eyes adjust

my guess is afghanistan. they've just had elections and that can only be positive press. shifts attention away from the death and dying in iraq for a change.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato

Why do you and Slap react with such cynicism at mention of this senario? Bush, as the incumbent has the resources to do it, he'd dominate the news for at least a week with it, it's a win-win -- the cries of "publicity stunt" would be buried by the overwhelming positive press and front page photos. Will you be so sarcastic if it happens this weekend? <br><br>

is gary's guess really dubya bashing? not the way i read it. gary is predicting something that could potentially help dubya overcome a pending loss. what's wrong with his scenario other than it's a long-shot? <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato

Bush going to Kabul to shake Karzai's hand is "Bush bashing conspiracy"?. I'll laugh at a plastic turkey when I seen it, but this isn't it. Totally unnecessary to attack me for presenting a straight forward post, you need to take a step back and relax.<br><br>

Well I never said squat about Osama and October surprise b/s, that's what you said. I'm talking about my post, "this senario", and how you automatical get nasty about it. Every comment I made was about Bush going Kabul to shake Karzai's hand. What's up with that?<br><br>

Well neither do I, so please don't assume every liberal newspaper article speaks for me. FWIW, I believe Osama has been dead for years. I also believe the October Surprise will be John Kerry handing Bush's ass on a platter as the swing states polling shift each day. <br><br>
