I've heard that President George Bush is proud of the fact that he never watches tv or reads the papers, and all his news and information is given to him by his advisors.
I've also heard that there were at least 2 photo ops in or around New Orleans where aid facilities were set up before his arrival and then torn down after he left. They existed there only because of the opportunity to show Bush as being 'on the ground' and 'amongst the people', even though the people he interacted with were carefully screened by the Secret Service.
What is reality? It's the experiences that you have that determine how things are for you. This is why your reality is so much different to my reality, because we have different experiences that create different realities for us.
I've been wondering how George Bush can sleep at night, knowing of all the lies that he's told. But what if he's not lying? I mean, to us who seem to know better, he certainly seems to be lying. But what if he's being truthful?
What if President George Bush's reality is simply what his advisors and his minders make for him? He thinks he's at 'ground zero' helping people, when in fact he's in a prefabricated, staged environment that's been set up entirely for him to think that's the true nature of things.
How do you get someone to believe they're telling the truth? By convincing them that it IS the truth.
I'm beginning to believe that this very unintelligent President is being easily manipulated by the true people in power (potentially Karl Rove, his advisor, as well as PNAC) in order to bring about their own agenda.
The reality that he believes is occurring is the reality that is presented to him by those in power, which is simply what they want him to believe and to promote. An unintelligent man makes a great puppet.
It was Senator Mary Landrieu, D-La, who has been the source of one of those particularly juicy bits of information regarding a prefabricated environment for the President and the media. You can find official mention of it here, and here's the relevent quote from what she said:
"But perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street levee. Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe. Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment…"
