    No I'm not. You have a short (selective?) memory.

    How do I have a short selective memory? I live in Ottawa, approximately 5 min away from parliment hill, I'm privy to most of the protesting and what not that goes on there. Aske me anything.

    Love this bit of "analysis" from the article:

    "I think Mr Bush wants to send a message way beyond North America to a number of countries in Europe.

    Okay, that much I can agree with.


    "As he comes to Canada, a country that opposed the war in Iraq, it may well be a gesture of the Bush administration, saying to among others the French and the Germans, look, there's Canada, we're prepared to talk in a co-operative way with them."

    Well, that's one take on it. Or it could be to tell the french and Germans that we're going to do what we need to do whether they like it or not.

    "Who knows? You may be next."

    Another message to the french and Germans. Interpret that any way you want.

    There wasn't a lot of actual coverage on the visit, just a lot of assumptions. A reporter in one of the local papers here in Ottawa was bitching about it yesterday.

    Well that's your Communist Broadcasting Company at work I guess...barely cover a visit from the most powerful dignitary in the world...(because it doesn't fit with the liberal program). Just wait until you start watching Hannity & Colmes, you might be in for a bit of shock. :thup:

    Bush knows that Canada is very anti-American yet he thanked you all for at least the five-fingered waves of welcome. He is making the first step toward better relations...isn't this what you liberals think we should do to make a better world? Chit-chat?

    If the beef is your beef, that will probably improve next spring...especially if Paul Martin gets going on the missile system approval I would venture to guess.

    In my opinion, I think the media coverage regarding Canada/US realtions has gotten way out of hand. I thought it was a good idea to keep media coverage limited - less bs.

    Who are you calling a liberal, me? And, I would like you name one country where Bush doesn't get a five finger salute, I'll bet it's not a Canadian thing.

    Who knows? I have no problem discussing Canadian issues with you, but you can lose the attitude any time.
