Giving speeches in front of assembled troops…

Posted by on June 28 at 17:05 PM

Is it just me, or is there something fundamentally creepy about Bush giving this speech in front of a worshipful military audience and not, say, from the Oval Office? It’s so… Hitler, Bush, Moussolini, so tinpot, banana republic, so generalisimo. I was pleased when the troops didn’t cheer him when he walked out - I thought that would happen. I wonder if they’ll cheer when he’s finished.
