Bush: "Saddam Killed Mandela"

Bush comments on Iraq
"I thought an interesting comment was made — somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, “Now, where’s Mandela?” Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas."
There's been a lot of noise as if Bush didn't even know impossible Mandela was alive. Are the media classes truly that stupid? Bush was obviously being symbolic. That is, using 'Mandela' as a symbol, not merely a man. He could as easily have said, 'Simon Bolivar is dead because Saddam killed all the Bolivars'. Or 'Fidel Castro is dead because Saddam killed all the Castors'. This is such a non-story.

Or rather, the 'know-nothing' image Bush's handlers have crafted for him make it impossible for him to deliver a symbolic message. He's just not supposed to be that smart, or that well-spoken. But anyone with any brains can see this is a non-story. The idea that this much news coverage is being wasted on this crap is just ....

Re: Bush: "Saddam Killed Mandela"

I watched some of his speech and I was laughing out loud at his stupid ass. This is a dumbfuck.

One reporter asked him a great question and Bush didn't know how to respond so he said "i'm not going to answer that question". He looked afraid.

True. Everybody knows this but their hatred for Bush is so blind that they can't admit it.

Re: Bush: "Saddam Killed Mandela"

Metaphor.

There are no 'Mandelas' in Iraq, there were none before.
Why? Saddam elminated them. Where is Jefferson and Washington
in the new Iraq? That type of person left, or was removed
from the planet by old Saddam, Uday, and Qusay......
He killed them.


Again, I await the brave Hollywood movie showing me what Saddam
did for 30 years, and what he did to the Kurds, to the Iranian
prisoners of war for 10 years, and Kuwait, and what he wished to
do to the Middle East. I could wait a long time I know. It's sad
that South Park has done about the meanest take on Saddam, and it's
a cartoon.



Uh, most people got it, and that's why it was not a big story.

Silly the way things get twisted, and made fun of so much.
When the Clintons or Kennedy or even Obama make a gaffe, it's
ignored. Oh well, that's just the way it goes I guess. Why
talk about anything substantive, like having a guy who would
to eliminate Israel from the world, speak to the Press corps,
Columbia, and the UN, and get lots of regular tv time like
he was a movie star. Nice.

You freak, the US government was supporting him when he was doing almost all of these, including your idol Reagan.

All you have to do is provide somebody with the 50 million dollars to make it. No need to wait.
