Catapulting the Propaganda

It's fascinating how photographers with access to Chimpy put strong leadership subliminal messages into the photo ops they've been granted. Frequently Bush appears in front of planes with United and America behind him while making a totally UN-American and/or divisive comment. U.S. at war with "Islamic Fascists" Some AP photogs, Charles Dharapak and Jim Young place halos via lights and chandeliers around Bush's head. That's why they're allowed to accompany Lieboy on trips. It's all in the framing. Hitler used it well too.

Vacation boy is taking his usual holiday for the month of July, he's just tossing in a few fundraisers here and here. He'll break up this year's "Ranch" vacation with a week at Kennebunkport in the middle, then back to Crawford.
Bush the vacation pResident
Mark Knoller of CBS News, whose statistics on presidential trips to Crawford are so comprehensive that the White House refers inquiries to him, said the current visit was Mr. Bush’s 59th trip to his ranch since taking office; as of Saturday, (August 5, 2006) he had spent all or part of 384 days there.

The president spent 27 days at the ranch in August 2001 and 2002, and 29 days in August 2003 and 2005. But in 2004, when Mr. Bush was running for re-election, his Crawford time totaled just 13 days, according to Mr. Knoller’s calculations. White House advisers say that the summer of 2006 will be patterned after that year, and that there is nothing unusual about it.

Lieboy sez "I just love the military" Bush uses his selective powers to ignore Cindy Sheehan but assist a more "friendly" parent of a dead soldier.
