    Bush sending a mixed message? Now there's a first! No matter the message, there's always a question of truth and motive.

    Bob in Seattle: Fine time to be asking this question after all the other Middle East diplomacy – on this administration's terms (and shoulders), mind you – has gone so well. HecKuva job there, Condi!!! Oh I forgot ... War on terror in a single Middle East country IS diplomacy. RIGHT?!

    There he is again, our great idiot-in-chief finds himself in another pickle.

    Let's see, we've given Pakistan BILLIONS of dollars not to mention military arms and allowed them to have nukes. What have we gotten in return? I guess it does make sense to send them more money and arms.

    After all, Republicans don't care where money comes from as long as they can keep spending it and lining theirs and the defense contractors' pockets. What the hell, the middle-class and their childern's children can pay for the deficit.

    This is not mixed messages. He is saying what he thinks but not acting....yet. Can you imagine the out cry if he did act. People would fault him for rushing into another conflict situation. Ohhh one can never do anything right when hated.

    Pakistan is two seconds away from becoming Myanmar. Look at the starkly different approaches Bush takes to each one.

    Obama called this one months ago.

    Bush is operating under false pretenses, he says one thing and does the opposite. I doubt if he knows what day it is unless someone tells him.
    He is like a rabbit hopping around the field, he changes directions after several hops.
