I have a question, Mr. President…

If I could somehow smuggle myself into one of those meetings whose invited attendees are friendly to the president, and if I could get called upon to ask Mr. Bush a question, here is my first one.

“Mr. President, we have heard you explain several times how firmly you believe in democracy for the world, that it is the United States’ responsibility, even obligation, to export democracy, to help make all peoples in all regions of the world free, and to change governments to democratic ones where they are not.

“Sir, I began taping your televised comments when you were a candidate in 2000. In one of your interviews from that year you responded to a reporter by saying, “I don’t think it is such a good idea for America to go around the world telling other countries how to live. I don’t think we should engage in ‘nation building.’ That only makes other countries hate the United States.” Your supporters agreed with you in great numbers.

My question, Sir, is: ‘Why did you flip on that position?’”

What a tragically funny point you make.

The deleted comment was from someone trying to use this space to advertise his own porn site. I am all for free enterprise and for freedom of speech. But I am not for using someone else's blog site for possible personal gain.
