Just what exactly is Dubya thinking? I watched the news last night wondering how those guys in Washington could even remotely think that Laura or anybody could recover goodwill in the Middle East without right action. What level of unreality are these people working with? It's almost a truism...the people are not collectively stupid. (You can fool some of them some of the time...) They can't help but see poor Laura's Charm Offensive as Uncle Sam's Offensive Charm.
If I were Laura, I'd be tellin' Dubya when I got home, "No sugar for you, honey, 'less'n you set up straight 'n fly right!"
Canadians will fall for a pretty face. But Hezbollah won't. You need to have some there there before you go there.
