    Do you agree? Quite a statement. In my opinion, nothing but empty propaganda from Bush. The ironic thing is that much of what he says simply reflects on himself.

    This article from Japan Times concludes key quotes.

    Here are my own favorite highlights taken from the official transcript from WhiteHouse.gov. For those who missed it. FoxNews.com still has a video recording.

    A tyrant is a ruler who uses fear to maintain control. First off, bin laden doesn't rule much, and secondly I think his main technique is fanatical religion, not fear.

    Further proving Bush's inability to use english properly

    I like the first quote. Seriously, I think he was subconsciously describing his own administration...

    Nothing Subconscious about it, nothing at all. {He is!}

    How many Americans have died, so far, to Serve GB's Grand Vision of Re-building Iraq?

    I particularly liked the part where he claimed the US had been 'invaded' in 2001.

    So he can't count

    Yes well counting is something that....

    Attacked yes, invaded? well, he seems to streeeeetch the truth a little to serve political purpose, resource aquisition.

    Has anyone seen Bin Laden? is he still "confirmed-Confirmable" as Living?

    Who has more Weapons of Mass Destruction available to them, Bin Laden, Or George Bush? so who then is the 'true' terrorist?

    "So he can't count" can you?

    I don't think this is an example of empty propoganda so much as it is Bush not knowing the proper usage of the term "tyrant."

    His lack of language comprehension isn't exactly a new thing. You should have seen the exhibit they had in West Hollywood on Halloween in 2000, just before he was elected the first time. It was a parody of a haunted house, but instead of being attacked by ghouls and goblins, every time you turned a corner, you were besieged by a bevy of W quotations. I really miss going to that Halloween parade every year.

    It's not surprising he mislabels Bin Laden a tyrant. After all, he spent four years mislabelling himself as a President.
