    Default Bush stages his teleconference with US troops

    Why am I not surprised by this. The chimp can't do anything without his strings being pulled.

    WASHINGTON - It was billed as a conversation with U.S. troops, but the questions President Bush asked on a teleconference call Thursday were choreographed to match his goals for the war in Iraq and Saturday's vote on a new Iraqi constitution.

    As she spoke in Washington, a live shot of 10 soldiers from the Army's 42nd Infantry Division and one Iraqi soldier was beamed into the Eisenhower Executive Office Building from Tikrit — the birthplace of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

    "I'm going to ask somebody to grab those two water bottles against the wall and move them out of the camera shot for me," Barber said.

    "OK, so let's just walk through this," Barber said. "Captain Kennedy, you answer the first question and you hand the mike to whom?"

    "Captain Smith," Kennedy said.

    "Captain. Smith? You take the mike and you hand it to whom?" she asked.

    "Captain Kennedy," the soldier replied.

    And so it went.

    I just don't believe it. Our mighty leader, who grabbed 50 rescue workers off the hurricane rescue for a photo op,would stoop this low? Noooo...not our mighty leader.

    But doesn't this happen with any presidential event like this (not with the press, but with regular peoples)? I guess I don't see what the issue is, I would have assumed every president would and has had this kind of structure and preparation for this kind of event.

    I'm sure that GW isn't the first president to do this.

    Lying and calling it an off the cuff 'conversation' with OFFICERS no less, (not enlisted grunts dying in the field) is such propaganda it's sickening.

    I like how none of the major US media conglomeratesare bothering to carry this story

    Maybe it's just my area (midwest US) but this is ALL OVER our news here, I can't get away from it, but that's local news. They haven't been bought yet.

    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Of course we can read on that other place that we won't mention, that it was all a mean piece of conspiracy by the leftwing media to insinuate anything out of the order here. "Over there" they say all this "staged" business has been debunked.

    This even made the Aussie news - it was toe curlingly embarrassing (and very funny).
