Yeah, I guess they lie at whitehouse.gov:

From http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2001/08/20010803-5.html :

"MR. ARMSTRONG: Thank you very much. You know, it's an honor to be here. President Bush has been a
friend of ours and a friend of mine for many years, back in -- since his days in Austin, right in
the wonderful state of Texas."

..However, you do get points for spelling loser "loser," not "looser."

I always thought that true Americans could think independently? Isn't that the true spirit of
America? Freedom of speech including sincere criticism?

No longer true. The Department of Homeland Security has rescended the Bill of Rights.

James, Don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel. Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing.

That's the America of old. Things aren't done that way anymore. If you don't support the
administrations every action, you are 'against us'.

Freedom of expression is ok as long as it only waving the flag and regurgitating the party line.

What kind of PC BS is that!? The 1890's were known for almost a century as "The GAY Nineties". It is
not unlikely that the 1990's would have been remembered as the second "Gay Nineties" regardless of
war or deficits, of which there were both.

His attitude strikes me as being in line with the majority of Americans. There are probably no
recent polls to verify this, but at least one poll shortly before the war clearly reflected it.

He is SO right, as is being shown abundantly by events in Iraq.

I didn't vote for him and had a hard time taking him seriously with his speech impediment. But when
some total retard hates him it makes me think I should give Bushy another chance/look. It's sort of
analogous to Kunich hating Gore. I mean, if Kunich hates him, can he be all that bad?
