George W. Bush's departing remark on global warming to the national leaders of the G-8 summit as he left what will be his last meeting with them yesterday in Japan. (Let us all pray!)
(Did we really want such flippant punk-ass leadership in the face of burning issues that may determine the survivability of humanity as we've known it? ~Dada)
"I'm not going to retract any of it. Every word I said was true!"
Senator John McCain's economic adviser, Phil Gramm, saying of remarks he made to the Washington Times regarding current U.S. economic conditions as being merely a "mental depression" and that the country has become a "nation of whiners."
(Do we really want the economic adviser of the next president of the United States telling us to quit our fuckin' whining just because we lost our jobs with the auto industry or the airlines or some bank or Starbucks or a Krispy Kreme shop or a mortgage company? But that's okay because we couldn't afford the gas to get to work anyway. And our family's out of a home as a result of a giddy housing market that got us in over our heads and it's our own damn fault because we're not thinking positively enough?! ~Dada)
He "does not speak for me -- I speak for me. So I strongly disagree."
Senator John McCain denouncing the remarks of his economic adviser, Phil Gramm.
(What does it say of a presidential candidate who would pick as his economic advisor a person living in an alternate reality or parallel Universe from another dementia who thinks the current economic conditions of the United States are the result of a bunch of depressed whiners who don't live on the same "smiley faced" planet as Gramm? Oh, and after McCain's strong denouncement of Gramm's remarks, is he still McCain's economic advisor? ~Dada)
