Bush defines sovereignty

An oldie but goodie:



For the real explanation of sovereignty, see The Facts About Tribal Sovereignty.

I remember seeing this some time ago and telling people about it. I haven't seen it since until now. This President is lacking in intellectual acuity and is an embarrassment to all. I feel that anyone who voted for this simpleton should be made to wear a scarlet B.

Hehe, this is classic Bush. The perfectly glassy-surfaced flatness of his thought patterns, and the utter flat-line of his intellectual trajectory, are something of a constant miracle.

Writerfella here --
And then again, the batteries in the Bluetooth unit with which Karl Rove feeds answers to GW may have gone dead.
Sovereignty from its strictest meaning is 'independent of all others, as in a sovereign state.' Which is not the case for Natives or Native governments, who are 'in for a penny, in for a pound (sovereign)' with the US Federal Government. Then again, Karl Rove may have been drunk and you know what happens when a puppetmaster isn't at his best.

One correspondent commented that Bush would've gotten a C at best if he'd offered that answer in a classroom. A D is more like it.

I know that politics, have forever been, a public display of arrogance, craftiness, manipulation, and the ability to out-talk an opponent (or showing your "silver tongue" skills). Who made the rules saying that a leader MUST be superb public speaker? Yes it would definately be good to posess that skill or ability, but is it crucial? No matter who is in the seat of the President, they will be made fun of; wheather it's you, the Pope, Mother Teresa, anyone. I'm sure it takes huge balls to be up there, bigger than yours or mine. Maybe if we all supported our nation and it's leaders, the rest of the world wouldn't hate us so much. Talk about a nation divided by its self, that's the real embarrassment!
