    :roll :chuckle You can say that again!

    And.....if I were President of the United States of America, and I had to go potty, I'd just excuse myself quietly, and GOOOOOO!!! Because when you gotta go, you gotta go. Perhaps the Pres should wear a foley with a foley bag attached to it when he goes to those longggggggg boring meetings.

    REUTERS has acknowledged Bush 'Potty Note' photo was enhanced via Photoshop. . .

    "Hershorn says heads of state seldom attend Security Council meetings, and it's possible that Bush was simply asking his secretary of state what the proper protocol was to be excused.

    Online, some accused Reuters, and the media in general, of being insulting or juvenile. A letter writer to Editor & Publisher wrote, "You ought to all be ashamed of yourselves for this stupid trivia and childish focus."

    Indeed, this was one of the previous comments, that America is often accused of suddenly leaving UN meetings, for various non-potty break purposes. So, Bush doesn't want to be seen as rude, asks the person who is his expert on UN protocol how to excuse himself, and he's being childish? The same people having a 'field day' with this would have been equally up in arms if he had just got up and walked out.

    The problem with objecting to EVERYTHING Bush does is that it makes your opinion irrelevant when you find something actually objectionable.

    I was not a Clinton fan. But I agreed with him on some things. And, while I may have thought he was crafty and um, slick, I didn't think he was EVIL.
    I wish we could return to America first, Party second politics.

    "The View" must have thought it was. Typical for that show.
    Now THAT's a whole 'nuther thread! I can't stand that show! They are all LOUD and talk at the same time very loudly to the point all I can hear is a bunch of chattering that makes no sense. And the young girl on the show who used to be a Survivor talks wayyyyyy too fast!

    Oh my, he actually used the restroom? Maybe the UN should consider a security council ban against being human. . .

    The UN is a scandal ridden, free loading, America bashing, vacation home to the elitists of the World.

    I don't much care about their 'perceptions' of the US. My 'perceptions' of the UN completely obliterates my concern for their mindless vaccilations.

    The World's problem with Bush is not that they don't respect him. THEY DO RESPECT HIM, as grudgingly as need be. They just wished America had a weaker leader that would kow-tow to them, ala John Kerry. Their disdain for Bush is centered upon jealousy and the fear of a strong America - exactly the opposite of lack of respect.

    Exactamundo!

    And thanks.

    freedom is not slavery. ignorance is dangerous. war, at times, can bring peace.

    "I wish we could return to America first"...me too.

    And it kind of bothers me that reporters turned paparazzi are allowed into security council meetings.

    This is crazy. Who cares if the President has to go?

    Like we all don't??????

    I'm sure he has to let his "people" know if there will be a change of plans so that someone can be planning on how to handle that change.
