You know, I thought about going to one of the protests on the 15th, but went with my cynical, apathetic side and figured it probably wouldn't matter. Well, cynicism and apathy win again. Apparently Bush feels that it's really great and all that we can express ourselves, but it doesn't make a difference to him.
"Size of protest, it's like deciding, 'Well I'm going to decide policy based up on a focus group.' The role of a leader is to decide policy based upon the security — in this case — security of the people."
I swear, living in this country is like being locked in a car with a drunk driver. Ari Fleischer is no better,
"Often the message of protesters is contradicted by history."
Ummm.... Yeah, and sometimes they're absolutely right as well. There was that whole Vietnam war deal, Ghandi's work, the civil rights movement...
