Bush in Germany: With a Hush and a Whisper, Bush Drops Town Hall Meeting with Germans - International - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Bush in Germany: With a Hush and a Whisper, Bush Drops Town Hall Meeting with Germans - International - SPIEGEL ONLINE: "During his trip to Germany on Wednesday, the main highlight of George W. Bush's trip was meant to be a 'town hall'-style meeting with average Germans. But with the German government unwilling to permit a scripted event with questions approved in advance, the White House has quietly put the event on ice. Was Bush afraid the event might focus on prickly questions about Iraq and Iran rather than the rosy future he's been touting in Europe this week?"

I wish more American cities would turn him down on scripted, invitation-only town-hall meetings. Hooray for the Germans. They know that shouldn't be the way "democracy" is to be run. Somebody give Bush a dictionary so he can know the definitions of: peace, democracy, freedom.
I do believe he has "fascism" down pat.
