Bush Turns Philosopher


www.cbsnews.com

Although he's "not generally known for intellectual curiosity," the Washington Post reports Monday that with his presidency at its "nadir," George W. Bush has summoned leading authors, historians and theologians to the White House for a series of philosophical discussions.

What is President Bush up to. Does he really intend to take advice from these interlectuals or is he just using the info for his own gain.
I wouldnt mind seeing the list of people that he saw.
And more specifics about what was discussed.

It just seems more in line with what I see as a common theme of Bush as a President who is willing to posture to change his image but is not willing to ACT to change his image.

Hmmm...According the way he's been acting during his years in the White House, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the primary "philosophical text" under study would be "Mein Kampf."

Remember Project Paperclip after WW 2, when a sizable number of high-ranking Nazis started working with the governments of the USSR & the USA? The "Iron Curtain" fell first because a Communist government already has its power centralized...But have you noticed how much more centralized that the US government's power has been getting since WW 2?

Hmmm...Coincidence or conspiracy? You decide!

It sounds like the actions of a man about to make a life altering decision. Only I doubt it's his life that will be altered that much.

Last week, they ran a nuclear strike simulation in secret. The 'false alarm' broadcast on the Chicago Emergency Alert system seems to be linked to that event.

I think the world's about to change.

Uh, perhaps he should have had these people over on 9-12-01, then he wouldn't have had this nadir.
Sigh, I guess better late than never; I'm always the eternal optimist.
Maybe he really believes he can do something before he leaves office, or this is for his consumption for his memoirs after he leaves.
OTOH he fits the description of "dry drunk". So maybe this is for his own personal consumption.

I pity the future careers and reputations of the "intellectuals" and philosophers who accept these invitations. It would be akin to sitting down with a chimpanzee and reading it Chaucer. Not only a complete waste of time couched in absurdity, but would lead to questions of the participants sanity.

DON'T DO IT!
