Bush and the Google
From CNBC

A CNBC host asked Bush whether he used the most popular search engine on Earth. His response betrayed an unfamiliarity with the Internet not seen in a politician since Sen. Ted “Series of Tubes” Stevens spoke out on the subject.

He uses “The” Google Earth to look at The Ranch. Interesting. Probably to find it.

Nah, he’s probably checking for Cindy Sheehan to see whether the coast is clear.

BUSH AND CHENEY’S NECROMANCY

Dick Cheney on “Meet The Press”
Faced with facts, his answers, a distorted mess
Still talking arrogant and bold
He is living in a “Star Trek” world

Cheney has no kin in Baghdad’s fight
But he continues to expound pomp and might
Sent our soldiers to fight for a lie
How many more will have to die?

Iraq and terrorism are two different entities
Connected only by Bush and Cheney’s insanities
Five years now since nine eleven
And Osama is still in his cavelike haven

Certainly we have created more terrorists
Because Bush and Cheney are imperialists
Our vote in November should be out of devotion
To retake from these despots, our Beloved Nation!

Whether or not you agree or disagree with me, I respect all people, but I sincerely do believe that President Bush and Vice President Cheney “; LIED” to us when they neglected the justified war on terrorism in Afghanistan and invaded Iraq. Invading Iraq galvanized the numerous splintered Jihad groups into “one big killing machine.” Bush and Cheney’s necromancy is the cause for the “chaos” in Iraq, where our soldiers are caught in the middle of Mesopotamia’s sectarian violence that has gone from bad to worse![NECROMANCY – “The practice of conjuring up spirits from the dead hoping to influence events.”]

Sounds like he knows exactly what Google is..in fact knows how to use Google Earth.. and is rightfully cautious about email. What a non-story.

Since Bush took office, federal subsidies and tax breaks went to 19th century technologies including agriculture, railroad and steel industries. There was nothing went to Silicon Valley. Go figure.

10 reasons where the Bush Peeps went wrong:
1) Weapon of mass destruction are in N. Korea
2) Let our troops in Pakistan Mr. M to get Binny
3) Show the picture of the dead soldiers arriv-
  in Maine. I miss Freedom of the Depressed
4) Where were your dauthers during Katrina and
  a few other wars. KOKS Keep our kids safe
5) I guess a loan of $10M and a few years as
  Prez of the Rangers is a pre-qually for Prez
  TU Dad for getting a loan. The $10M sale price
6) Quote, “The Israel and Palistines have to work
  it out themselves.”
7) Where did a great general go, like in Colin
8) If I shot a fellow hunter and know one knew
  for 24 hours…DA
9) Didn’t know the Talibannies could grow so much
  OP / amazing what commerce can do in the USA
  and number 10)
  How do appoint a horse judge of 10 years as
  Captain of FEMA…“Great Job Brownie”

Bush sees to not be able to hold a decent conversation on his own without a prewritten copy by Carl Rove.

He doesn’t read books or newspapers, only use the Bible for a prop, so why should he know anything about Google?  Did he pronounce it ‘goggle’ too?
