Well let's hope he doesn't bring his 12-inch pianist.
2005-06-27 11:58:14 AM  
I hope Shcroeder has a high tolerance threshold...

Clever headline, but not highly explicable as a greenlight.

Confucius say stupid man buy wife grand piano, wise man give wife upright organ.
2005-06-27 12:00:58 PM  
Maybe he should polish Schroeder's organ to see if Germany will give us some troops/money for our quagmire?

Bravo Submitter, Made me laugh... XD
2005-06-27 12:04:59 PM  
I hope he brought over some Warsteiner Dunkel!

Germany is better off not talking to Bush at all. They may get caught up in his "awesome orator skills!"

/Das ist nicht so gut
//Bush ist sehr dumm
2005-06-27 12:05:58 PM  
Yaa, but is he going to let that cat of his out of the box and find out if its dead or not?

No, good headline makes automatic greenlight. By the way, as long as your head is currently enveloped by your colon, could you try and find my crayons that you swallowed a couple months back? Thanks.

Bush is a huge fan of Silver Spoon. Besides he wants to ride the train.

Excellent headline, submitter.
2005-06-27 12:19:08 PM  
I'm sure he could play something nice like "April Showers."
Or even "Frere Jacques."
Beethoven's nice too.

Actually, it's just that Fox News isn't an automatic red light.

Do you think Schroeder knows anything about the Red Baron?

"Bush on Monday ... to curb Iran's nuclear program and send a "focused, unified message that development of nuclear weapons is unacceptable."

What a 100% certifiable piece of shiat this man is. And I'm not referring to Schroeder.

You dint go to war with us, why din't you go to war with us? We made jokes about you cause you were too smart to go to war with us. We made fun of you and those france people and called french fries freedom fries 'cause you guys wun't go to war with us. You are old europe, see how smart we look now? You had yur chance to go to war with us and you blew it. Now it is are war, you don't git any!

Shame on you retarded god fockers for choosing to be spiteful and electing a monkey just because he shares your superstitions- not because of his ability. Losers.

Ralph Peters: Gerhard's Grovel

IN the bitter winter of 1077, Kaiser Heinrich IV, a vicious German politico, pursued the pope to a mountain castle to beg him to lift his excommunication. The pope let the emperor wait barefoot in the courtyard for three days before granting an audience.

When Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder visits the White House today, our president should at least keep him waiting three hours. Extend that morning meeting with the Deputy Plumber's Guild of Peoria. Presidents have to prioritize.

Bush won't be rude, of course. Besides, he's got more on his schedule than a burnt-out German hack he's got to get the chancellor in and out. It'll be enough to watch Schroeder squirm as he crawls to the Oval Office, begging to be taken seriously again.

Schroeder's so pathetic these days that it's almost almost tempting to pity him. He was never a man of substance, just a populist slimeball who told more lies in public than Bill Clinton did in private. But the Herr Kanzler figured he could coast on the legacy better men had left behind in Germany. He never had a program, just ambition.

And Schroeder blew it on every single front. With his penchant for grandstanding and an appetite for licking Jacques Chirac's boots, he made a great show of "standing up to Bush" while defending Saddam Hussein. In doing so, he wrecked an alliance of a half-century's standing that had allowed Germany a voice in world affairs it never deserved.

Think Germany's been forgiven? Talk to any American general or diplomat off the record.

At home, Schroeder lacked the vision or courage to undertake anything beyond cosmetic reforms of Germany's gasping economy. The result: the highest level of unemployment since the end of World War II, with developing-world joblessness in his country's industrial heartland.

The children of the Auschwitz guards love to lecture us about human rights. But they won't even give their youth hope for the future. How can a society claim to be humane when it condemns its citizens to lifelong unemployment and the humiliation of the dole?

Under Schroeder, Germany's educational system continued to deteriorate, the country's brain-drain accelerated, industry shifted jobs abroad and the Teutonic reputation for quality craftsmanship went into free-fall (pretty grim when the reliability rating of Mercedes is below that of Hyundai . . . ).

Now Schroeder's lies have caught up with him. Germans want him out. And he's desperate to end his dying chancellorship on any faintly positive note he can. So the Windbeutel invited himself to Washington and our president graciously offered to buy him lunch.

What does Schroeder want? Besides a free meal?

First, he wants a photo op that lets him pretend he's still taken seriously by the most powerful man in the world.

Second, he'll get down on his knees and promise to be good, good, good as gold if only Bush will back Germany's bid for a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.

Bush would be as nutty as Howard Dean to agree. There are, indeed, a few countries deserving of a new reserved seat at the Security Council's Theater of the Absurd Brazil and India head the list but Germany's claim to a permanent chair falls somewhere between the aspirations of Liberia and Myanmar.

Why should a decaying, neurotic country with a recent history of massive genocide be granted a seat at the world's most exclusive table? Russia already fills that bill.

But Gerhard, having stabbed the American people in the back with a dull knife two years ago, is hoping against hope that our short historical memory will kick in and we'll forget that one of his favored parliamentarians compared Bush to Hitler and the chancellor didn't offer one word of apology.

Schroeder will blabber on about the long tradition of friendship between our two nations. Come again? We had to force democracy on the Germans at gunpoint. They sucked our strategic blood for 50 years and then chose Saddam Hussein over Uncle Sam.

Yeah, we're pals, Fritz. Here comes the big bratwurst.

Our president can afford to be gracious to the beggar on the South Lawn. Bush doesn't have to land any haymakers on the punch-drunk pol: Tony Blair, the British lion incarnate, is ripping off the chancellor's limbs in a diplomatic Monty Python skit.

Blair has given Chirac and Schroeder such a hammering over their refusal to reform the European Union's antiquated system of subsidies that even German newspapers have accepted that the Brit is right: The European Union can't heal itself without serious, painful changes.

Blair wants money moved from giveaway programs to research and development. Schroeder and Chirac want to keep rewarding Europe's unproductive and inefficient farmers and vintners for being unproductive and inefficient.

A week ago, Schroeder thought he saw an opening when Blair torpedoed the business-as-usual E.U. budget. Now he finds that even his longtime allies believe that Blair nailed it.

Justice doesn't always prevail in this complex, tormented world. But sometimes it does. It's lovely to see Chirac in the merde in France and Schroeder begging for mercy in D.C.

All we can hope is that President Bush doesn't succumb to one iota of pity: Don't forgive, don't forget. Schroeder's perfidy aided America's enemies. The chancellor should go home without so much as a souvenir fountain pen.

Bush should smile, listen, shake hands then let the "tin chancellor" suffer the consequences his duplicity brought down upon him.

Ralph Peters' forthcoming book is "New Glory, Expanding America's Global Supremacy."

Ah... I see he's going to Washington so he and Bush can commiserate then.

Awesome headline. Glad it went green.

President Bush on Monday encouraged German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder to continue working with France and Great Britain on negotiations to curb Iran's nuclear program and send a "focused, unified message that development of nuclear weapons is unacceptable."

. . . unless you're us, 'cause we're cool and shiat.

It's so funny that Germany and France were right about the Iraq war/quagmire. All President Stupid can say "uh, it's hard, it's hard work".

Discuss the possible military campaign against Iraq with retired Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters.

Risen from the enlisted ranks, Ralph Peters became an intelligence officer and a foreign area specialist for Russia and its borderlands. He has served in infantry units, in the Pentagon, and in the Executive Office of the President. His military career and personal interests have taken him to more than fifty countries. He is the author of Beyond Terror: Strategy in a Changing World and the highly-influential Fighting For The Future: Will America Triumph?

While I don't agree with the tone of MonkeyButler's</b article, what it says is true enough: Schrder is being pwned in slow motion, and right now he's probably doing everything he can to stop thinking about it. Today a visit to the White House, tomorrow I'm guessing it'll be the whole bottle of Tenneesee whiskey he brings back as a souvenir.
2005-06-27 12:48:51 PM  
Cheerfully withdrawn, MonkeyButler.

All that can be overheard during their meeting:

"Waaah wah wah-wah-wah wahhh wah waha wah."
2005-06-27 12:51:31 PM  
songoku, you are so right!

Bring back Otto Von Bismarck!

More children(8-18) think of Bush(Busch) as a beer than as a president! Head for the mountains!

Bush hat keine Ahnung!
