    Get out the checkbook Cheney

    I need to pay for a new democracy. Good ole Georgie promises to spend more of our borrowed money to create a Palestinian state. Call him the Nation Building President now. What are the chances that a stable democracy can exist long term in that region? I wish I could say they were good.

    I just want to see the details before the money starts flowin. If I have faith in anyone ending the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, it ain't GW.

    What did he mean then? More of his "political capital" that he "earned"?

    It must mean that he will sell the capitol building and use the proceeds to fund the palestinian state. Or maybe they'll disassemble it and ship it over there to use as their new capitol building. We definitely need a clarification.

    Why so late to the party? This could have been done in the past 4 years, but no, the Monkey Man needed to have his war first.

    And he had to wait for Arafat to croak so he could use the US's considerable influence on Israel to do some nation building.

    Now that Arafat's pushing up daisies, they won't have him to blame for frustrating any peace process.

    You should put quote marks around "peace". Another gem from our president, "We'll hold their feet to the fire to make sure that democracy prevails," Bush said of the Palestinians' onus to elect a democratic government."

    Translation...they'll form a democratic state or else--even if we have to bomb the sh*t out of them to accept it.
