Roll The Tape

It sounded pretty bad in the newspaper, but it sounds even worse on tape. Majority Report Radio has a rare tape of GW Bush attempting to answer an unscripted question by a member of the Minority Journalists association, who I'd wager is not a member of the White House Poodle Press Corps.

  2. Why assume he misspoke? Maybe this is the debut of a new hardline stance against the Injuns: giving them full sovereignty in their landlocked, barren reservations, complete with border controls and a total withdrawl of all US government services. See how well they’ll fare under those circumstances.

Hicks, Atkinson Trading Co. v. Shirley), I’d be a lot more afraid were I a Native American interested in protecting my cultural heritage or my land.
