Are you a sheep?

February 23 3:42 PM

Still about this UAE buying American ports:

Bush, talking to reporters at the conclusion of a Cabinet meeting earlier Thursday, said that "people don't need to worry about security."

"The more people learn about the transaction that has been scrutinized and approved by my government," Bush said, "the more they'll be comforted that our ports will be secure."

He says it again "approved by my government". Maybe he just mis-spoke and meant "my administration", but I honestly doubt he did and firmly believes that he runs the whole government and is the sole representative and shepard of the people.

So are you a sheep? He told you not to worry. So do you feel better or worse? Frankly I dont stop worrying because I am just told to do so. This feels like he is basically saying "you are far too dumb and ill-informed to understand this, so dont worry, I have this all under control" - just like the very long laundry list of things he has had under his "control". Well I'm sorry, but I dont swallow anything he says and if he's telling me not to worry, then I am going to worry like mad.
