Deluded???

It was reported on the news over here in the UK that Mrs Laura? Bush has been describing GWB as 'anti-war'.

I can think of only a few reasons why she would say that.

1. Love is REALLY, REALLY blind

2. She is actually dumb enough to believe it.

3. She actually believes that there is someone, somewhere who
is dumb enought to believe it.

was it Bob Dylan who said "You can fool some of the people, some of the time........................

points 1,2&3 all good reasons, maybe add,

4. She was told to.

5, She didn't actually say it, it was wrongly/falsely reported,

6, It is actually true that GWB is anti war and the rest of us are just too dumb to notice!!

Which paper / channel did the reporting, I'd like to see it.

thanks

Mark
p.s. if it turns out to be No 6 then I feel hari-kari (sp?) may be in order

7. She drank the "NeoCon Kool-Aid," required of all White House staff and Cabinet-Members.

(*gulping & drinking noises*) "Ahhhh!! Now it all makes sense!"

8. She isn't really "our" Laura Bush, from "our" time-space. She's really from the Star-Trek anti-matter dimension, where everything is opposite over there, than it is over here.

Over there: Bush really IS an anti-war activist. And somehow, "their" Laura just got switched with "ours."

9. She ACTUALLY said that W is a violent mass-murdering liar. But, the NSA hacked into her satellite-feed and scrambled "mass-murdering liar" with "anti-war activist."

Perhaps this means the US government has resumed it's LSD 25 experiments? Maybe we'll see footage of her climbing trees in the White House grounds trying to feed the birds. Stay tuned.

Re: Deluded???

What do you expect her to say? "GWB is neutrual on war. Just when his rating is not up to his liking, he likes to start a war with any country who is easy to blame to boost his rating"?

To question her truthfullnese is dumb.

Q: How can you tell if a politician is lying?

A: When he/she opens his/her mouth.

Positive. They're putting sleeping-pills in the gen'l-pop water-supply, not Kool-Aid....

Well, if she had: I'd respect her more, in the morning.

True enough. But not all pol's equally murder the truth. Some politicians lie so often and so thoroughly that they themselves forget what the truth was.

Well, after reading her views on AIDS and noting how out-of-touch-with-reality such views as these really are...

She rejected criticism that the US attaches moral strings to some financial support for Aids treatment projects, and that it undermines some aspects of prevention.

"It is very important to talk about abstinence, especially in countries where girls feel they have to comply with the wishes of men," she said.

"It sort of irritates me when I hear people act like abstinence is not a real choice because it is, and it is 100% effective."
...there can only be one possibility:

10. She really IS from Outer Space.

Her choice of mate only goes to confirm this!
