A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Today we will just quote from a story in "Newsday" that indicates even the mainstream media may be awakening to the gross negligence and cluelessness of Mr. Bush:

"As Israeli warplanes were preparing an attack on Lebanon Thursday afternoon, and a Lebanese militia was aiming a rocket at the ancient Israeli city of Safed, President George W. Bush was bantering with reporters in Germany about a pig.

"Bush kept bringing up the roast wild boar he was about to dine on at a banquet that night, even when asked about the swelling crisis in the Middle East, where pig meat is forbidden to religious Jews and Muslims.

"Does it concern you that the Beirut airport has been bombed?" a reporter asked. "And do you see a risk of triggering a wider war?"

"I thought you were going to ask me about the pig," Bush replied blithely. Then he brought the pig up again -- for the fifth time -- before giving a long answer that ended with his saying Israel needed to protect itself.

"He was asked a serious question," said Ian Lustick, a Middle East expert now at the University of Pennsylvania, and his answer "epitomized his disengagement in the Middle East."

This is insanity that this man is still in office.

We're starting to believe that FOX GOP News (also known as FOX Fictional News) is engaged in a criminal enterprise for covering up for an administration which endangers the national security of the United States and is run by an idiot.

Our foreign policy has sunk to "oink, oink" stories.
