Who's Beckham?

It's obvious he missed the history lesson. There has been a large collective roll of the eyes here in Kansas City at his "message".

Then again, this could all be a clever ploy to inconvenience everyone in Kansas City... I mean, we've had three democratic presidential candidates in town over the last few weeks, and not one of them cause MODOT to falsify "construction detour alerts" to effectively shut down the downtown area around his speaking engagement today... Also, snipers have been strategically placed around Bartle Hall, just in case.

I recall when Clinton came to town during his presidency, not only did he NOT shut down major downtown access in the middle of a work week, thereby grinding our little working economy to a halt for the day, but he motorcaded around in the open, at places which if you chose to, you could stand on one of the rooftop garages in the Plaza and wave to him. But then again, all he did was let an intern suck his dick, foster a good economy, sorta...etc.

You know... it must suck to have fucked up so bad that you have to live in fear of going outside or taking a drive through a small midwestern town. I mean... the midwest... the Bible Belt... it's supposedly where his base is, yes? What an ass.

Even my yoga instructor made a joke at the beginning of class about how she was hoping he would come in and do yoga with us today... and maybe learn something. But I quickly pointed out the absurdity of having his entire Secret Service entourage that would have to accompany him do yoga as well, and how the room simply wasn't big enough to accomodate them... which made everyone in the room laugh.

Perhaps Bush is subliminally suggesting that the entirety of our armed forces model their behavior after his during the Vietnam era and go AWOL.

see this is what happens when you don't study in school - you could end up being president ;)

Of course, one could argue that the tragic loss of life in Vietnam after the American withdrawal was not caused by the withdrawal, but was an inevitable result of our involvement in the first place.

I'm particularly stunned that he mentioned the Killing Fields. As I understand it the Khmer Rouge were able to recruit supporters largely due to anger over the indiscriminate carpet bombing of Cambodian villages by the US and that they were able to take power only due to the destabilization of the existing government by US action. Not to mention that the US government provided aid to the Khmer Rouge later simply because they opposed Vietnam. It was in fact Vietnam who invaded Cambodia and put an end to the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge.
