    Well, he did get his on the job training from Dick "FU" Cheney! What are we to expect -- a statesman? :confused:

    It's amazing how, for all his verbal inarticulateness, he still manages to get his political philosophy across.

    I don't like the guy very much but looking at the last few frames, one at a time. (when he's bringing it down) I'm pretty sure he's making the "thumb up". Try it.

    You're right, its pretty clear from the video on the bottom. You can see his thumb extend before his hand turns. But the still does look like his flicking them off.

    Thats too bad, the MSM deserves to be flicked off. LOL. But i guess Bush does it figuratively every time their pitful attempts to discredit his administration bounce off of him and fall crashing to the ground...

    Fire Rumsfield, fire Cheney, send Delay home, fire Karl Rove, Bush lied, close club gitmo, blah blah blah... lol...

    Nobody cares but the wecantmoveon.org crowd

    That video was "discovered" 2 weeks before the 2004 election. Its old news. It obviously didn't accomplish its intended purpose either.

    assuming the video isn't doctored, the motivation for "discovering" it and the fact that it's old (was he governor then?) doesn't change the fact that he flipped off the media.

    nice attempt at redirect.

    And more to the point: It's not as interesting if he's just giving the thumbs-up, is it?

    My point is that nobody cared then and nobody cares now. He was obviously joking around with the people in the TV studio.

    neither of which were my point. i was simply saying he's done it before. it doesn't prove or disprove that you had Corn Flakes for breakfast, but that wasn't my point either now, was it?

    And your point is meaningless to this thread. Just because he's done it before doesn't mean he did it again. And the two are completely different contexts. So thanks for adding nothing to the discussion.
