Bootlick Bush apologizes.

It's bad enough that we have such a dumbassed, effete, pussy President, but when he starts apologizing for someone in this country exercising their Constitutional rights, it's time to send him back to Crawford.

I thought Reagan was bad, but this clueless sack of chickenshit makes Reagan look brilliant. If you've been paying attention you know the story. Here's the aftermath:

Chinese leaders place high importance on protocol and symbolism, and Bush
moved promptly to deal with the protest on the lawn. Once they reached the Oval
Office, Bush
apologized to his guest.

"He just said this was unfortunate and I'm sorry it happened," said Dennis
Wilder, acting senior director for Asian affairs on the National Security
Council staff.

Hu was gracious in accepting Bush's apology, Wilder said. The two leaders
moved on in their talks and it was not mentioned again in several hours of
meetings. In what the White House described as a sign of their friendship, Hu
and Bush sat next to each other at the luncheon — a departure from traditional
protocol that would have them at different tables.

Gracious? Hell, this is America. This is the way Democracy works. We don't apologize to anyone for saying what we think. Let alone to someone that controls their country's freedoms with an iron fist.

China permits about three dozen foreign television channels to be distributed in
China, mostly entertainment channels, but also CNN and the BBC among others.
Their signals, however, must first pass through a state-owned monitoring center,
allowing the government to black out news stories it dislikes — and it routinely
does so.

In Bush's America the perceptions of the Chinese is more important than the perceptions of the American people.

"It's hugely embarrassing," said Derek Mitchell, a former Asia adviser at
Pentagon and now
an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

China "must know that this Bush administration is good at controlling
crowds for themselves, and the fact that they couldn't control this is going to
play to their worst fears and suspicions about the United States, into mistrust
about American intentions toward China."

But we all knew Bush/Cheney would gladly sell out the country to make a few bucks.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
