Hypocrite

'So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.'

I may be dense, but I fail to see what connection
the published photograph has, with your one-word title.

Is the Saudi gentleman a hypocrite?

Our president does not leap upon the scene
vested with a miraculous power to
overcome decades of ingrained and immobile
international arrangements.
Therefore, in Michael Moore fashion,
with enough effort, it is possible to find
photos of him with any number of rogues.
Do you think our "Ally" in anti-terrorism,
General Musharraf, is not part and parcel
of the coddling of Al Qaeda
and such types as A.Q. Khan?
But.....
Michael Moore's moment has now passed.
Do not emulate his puerile & unproductive vandalism.

In a memorable upward reach,
breaking completely free of the picayune
and divisive smear/counter-smear rhetoric
indulged in by electioneering pseudo pundits,
Mr. Bush has crafted a speech definitively
above their heads, short circuiting
and ending their momentary relevance,
and casting America in its proper
historical role.

It is rated
as perhaps the best inaugural speech
ever presented.

I personally felt uplifted,
relieved, and refreshed,
after hearing it,
and I now view the self aggrandizing
blog combats of campaign 2004
as old hat.

Don't you?

George W. Bush is the hypocrite, because he claimed that American interests around the world and American ideals of democracy, liberty and self-determination are now one, but at the same time he maintains friendly relations with the Saudi Arabian government, the Pakistani dictatorship and many other tyrannies around the world, because it's in America's interest. George W. Bush is a hypocrite because on the one hand he thinks freedom overseas is good for America, but his actions demonstrate that he thinks that non-freedom in Saudi Arabia is good for America (otherwise he would call for democratic elections in Saudi Arabia). Someone who thinks that both freedom and non-freedom is good is a self-contradicting hypocrite.

The Saudis are not hypocrites. They never claimed to be friends of democracy.
