Reason Number 514 for the war

CORONADO, Calif. -- President Bush answered growing antiwar protests yesterday with a fresh reason for US troops to continue fighting in Iraq: protection of the country's vast oil fields, which he said would otherwise fall under the control of terrorist extremists.


Appearing at Naval Air Station North Island to commemorate the anniversary of the Allies' World War II victory over Japan, Bush compared his resolve to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's in the 1940s and said America's mission in Iraq is to turn it into a democratic ally just as the United States did with Japan after its 1945 surrender.


"If Zarqawi and [Osama] bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks," Bush said. ''They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."

The President then urged the crowd to sing louder and keep clapping, or Tinkerbell would die.

This guy is saying, "Shit Mr. President, don't fuck up my axe like you fucked up the middle east, okay?"

For me, the worst part is that I play country music. I love the shit, everything from bluegrass and old-time to Lone Star (possibly the lamest band of all time). I play guitar, so I can look at how he's holding it and he doesn't even know what he's doing. He's TOTALLY pretending to play.
Look at Mark Wills, holding it up so the dummy doesn't drop it.

I don't know where he learned the G-chord that he's not only fingering improperly, but he's doing it at the wrong fret.

On top of that, it's a shitty guitar. I think it's a Taylor. Lame. At least Kerry had a Martin, and had some rudimentary guitar skills. Not Bozo here.

I'm on a bluegrass list-serv incidentally; a lot of the folks there are very red-state, man, their integrity as musicians is going to make them laugh at Bush with a good degree of disdain.

Sorry for the impromptu country music rant, but this shit is just pathetic.

As a guitarist I am deeply troubled at the sight of Bush touching my favorite instrument. He couldn't play a chord if his job depended on it...

He's been faking it all his life why should he stop now?
