Quotes

[first lines]
George W. Bush: To those of you who received honors, awards, and distinctions, I say, well done. And to the C students, I say, you, too, can be President of the United States.
Norman Mailer: We have the worst President in America's history. He's ignorant, he's arrogant, he's stupid in all ways but one: which is that he's immensely shrewd about the American people, particularly the less intelligent half of America. Because they're very happy with him in that they realize how stupid he is, and they say to ...

Kerry Ought To Watch THIS Documentary
17 October 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

All I can ask, having seen this on our great national television network here in Canada earlier tonight, is: why doesn't Kerry have the fortitude to tell the truth about Bush and his administration like the people interviewed in this Doc did?

Perhaps he has not even seen this film. But surely he knows many of the revealing facts about George W. Bush, his father (former Pres) and his grandfather's connections with Nazi Germany etc.

ALL Americans owe it to themselves to expose themselves to the facts exposed pointedly by Karel in "The World According To Bush". Kudos go to this filmmaker. 9 out of 10!!
