Straight Shooter

I thought Time Magazine told me the era of "Cowboy Diplomacy" was over? If that's true, why is Bush swearing at Syria and making fun of Kofi Annan?

This is exactly the reason why people like me like George W. Bush so much. In an era of political correctness and reserved speeches, we have a commander in chief who speaks his mind - even if he didn't expect anyone to hear him...

Bush: You see, the ... thing is what they need to do is to get Syria, to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over.


Bush: I felt like telling Kofi to call, to get on the phone to Bashad [Bashir Assad] and make something happen

Blair: Yeah

A President properly pointing the finger at a terrorist-sponsoring state? A President making the ridicilously valid point that the Secretary General of the UN should do something about the Middle East conflict? Unheard of - unless someone forgets to turn their microphone off.
