Bush appealing to lowest common denominator

Bush continued with his xenophobic theme yesterday telling audiences:

"Senator Kerry's approach to foreign policy would give foreign governments veto power over our national security decisions, ..."When our country is in danger, the president's job is not to take an international poll. The president's job is to defend America. I'll continue to work every day with our friends and allies for the sake of freedom and peace. But our national security decisions will be made in the Oval Office, not in foreign capitals."

This may be confusing to the previously mentioned Fox viewers who are laboring under the misapprehension that the world supported the US invasion of Iraq.

Since Bush's concept of national security consists of invading countries that are no threat to America, torturing people whilst declaring themselves above International law, destroying the environment, trying to interfere in the politics of countries like Venezuela and supporting and arming regimes that are occupying other peoples countries and terrorising and killing their citizens I think we are entitiled to an opinion, but I expect I just hate their freedom.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I just can't get over how similar this rhetoric is to the last leader who scorned world opinion and didn't forget Poland.
