Fahrenheit 9/11 & the moron

There really is freedom in America. That's what I inferred after watching the movie 'Fahrenheit 9/11'. For starters, it was a Bush-bashing movie released earlier this year. And bashing is something that's very nicely, artfully and professionally done. If you are like me (spammed to glory with all sorts of non-sensical email forwards, that is), you'd have probably come across umpteen missives delving on Bush and his idiocies. This one is class apart, and one that's done with acute craftiness. The best thing about this pseudo-documentary-movie is that Bush does all the damage to himself. There's absolutely no way someone watching the movie (even if it's a birth-to-death Republican) can restrain oneself from being taken aback by the naivety of who's *supposed to be* the world's most powerful man.

As the first news of the September 11 attack came to his ears, he was cruising to a primary school for camera coverage. And even after being informed about the second plane crashing into the WTC, Bush didn't know what to do. He sat for - what I'd say - a record 11 minutes in total silence in front of primary school children reading what looked like a cartoon book that a second grader wouldn't be too interested in! Moore, the collater of all these clips, somehow managed to get hold of the clippings from the primary school teacher who took the video coverage. And the clipping is here for us showing the world's most powerful man sitting absolutely clueless (for the lack of advisers) when his country was on fire. If nothing, it has left on me an indelible imprint that he's a moron, with probably an IQ tilting towards the negative! :)

Rewind to first sentence - the best thing about the movie is the way it portrays the freedom of speech. It proves to the whole world that freedom is something that America provides in letter *and in spirit*. In which other country could you possibly release a whole 2 hour movie taking the president-in-power for an absolutely shocking, shameful and humiliating (for lack of a powerful word!) ride, with total impunity? That perspective, hail America. And throw Bush to dogs. I'd be surprised if Bush scores a single vote next time, even if 99% of what's in the movie is cotton candy!

All the Red Necks who saw Michael Moores movie and took is a truth.. you need to learn how to read and stay up todate with the news and educate yourself on american politics and history so you don't get all orgasmic about another Red Necks limited and small town view of our president. Michael Moore is wrong and had no idea about how the world really functions.. He is the epitome of stupid, racist & ignorant America.
Chew on that one Fat Boy!! The Freedom Michael Moore Challanges is the same freedom that lets that bastard make and how his movie... How Ironic yet typical of an uneducated person to bit the hand that so feeds them... so to speak.

Quite implicitly, you look like a Bush fanatic, and an American at that. You say we gotta learn more abt American politics. Taken! Indians dont know America ass much as Americans do. But how you do propose to refute the authenticity of the video taken where Bush sitting cozily and reading a kindergarden novel, when American was on fire?

I'd appreciate if you could show ur real face... instead of being anonymous.

freedom of speech and expression only to their countrymen what about other people.the indian parliament took weeks before issuing a very mild condemnation of the attack on iraq after carefully checking spelling and GRAMATICAL MISTAKES!! so that it does not hurt the sentiments of the U.S. People as if we are senseless morons.i think if the people of iraq had been given voting rights in U.S.elections instead of throwing bombs at them bush would have thrown dollars from B12's and what else...he would have requested saddam to get the 100% voting in his favour!!!
