Jaack. You're clearly upset, I mean, you may well have reason to be. But hey, you fear for your country, so regardless of what the reality of the situation may be, one way or the other, your cause is noble.
But what about all the people that told you that they feared that their country is going astray with Bush? It's the same thing.
And to prove you're seeing things slanted, Jaydees has pointed out that (In the very article you posted) Bush shook Chavez' hand eight years prior! Too which, of course, you had no complaint. Probably had no knowledge of it either.
"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."
