Bullyin' and Lyin' at the UN
Watching George Bush deliver his "speech" to the UN was a distressing experience. He's an embarrassment to the United States but worse than that he's a cruel clueless man and a liar. Jaw dropping moments: "My country desires peace," he said. Technically he's right..WE want peace. It's the neocons who don't, peace isn't profitable for them. Lieboy said, "We respect Islam." Gee, he has a funny way of showing it. Torturing people, calling them fascists, bombing them...yeah, that's respect. Another gem, "Freedom by its nature can not be imposed." Sure, you have to use shock and awe, invade, build a giant embassy and several military bases first.
This speech was an insult to the rest of the world. Frat Boy Bush sneered and smirked and read his script haltingly. He "instructed" the rest of the world how to behave, took no responsibility for his numberous screwups and claimed successes in Afghanistan and Iraq. He threatened Iran several times and refused to meet with Ahmadinejad. The nasty characteristics he attributed to Middle Eastern nations were nothing more than projection. So much for diplomacy Bush-style. He has no business at the UN...he's a cowboy who's going to get us all blown up.
The UN schedule was running late, Bush and Ahmadinejad didn't overlap in the building.U.N. Debate
As was customary, Bush delivered the second speech of the day and co-hosted a lunch with Secretary-General Kofi Annan just before 1 p.m. Ahmadinejad didn't deliver his speech until the evening, and was not even in New York when Bush was at the U.N., according to U.S. Ambassador John Bolton.
There was one meeting Bush did not avoid. He shook hands warmly with his predecessor, President Bill Clinton, who was in town for his Clinton Global Initiative conference, which pushes the world's rich and powerful to act on poverty, health care and global warming. It probably made him feel better to see a man with diplomatic connections all over the world...a REAL president.
