    I do not understand why they let GWB out to answer questions in an open forum, while they screen folks a few seem to get through and this is very confusing for this president and does not play to his strong suit. Last week it was in Philadelphia, yesterday it was in DC..he may not know this answer, but there are better ways to answer it. It seems that everytime he gets into this type of setting he bumbles, fumbles and does not have the ability to distinguish himself as a great leader..from a left point of view this is good, but overall I find his answers embarassing.

    Q Thank you, Mr. President. It's an honor to have you here. I'm a first-year student in South Asia studies. My question is in regards to private military contractors. Uniform Code of Military Justice does not apply to these contractors in Iraq. I asked your Secretary of Defense a couple months ago what law governs their actions.

    THE PRESIDENT: I was going to ask him. Go ahead. (Laughter.) Help. (Laughter.)

    Q I was hoping your answer might be a little more specific. (Laughter.) Mr. Rumsfeld answered that Iraq has its own domestic laws which he assumed applied to those private military contractors. However, Iraq is clearly not currently capable of enforcing its laws, much less against -- over our American military contractors. I would submit to you that in this case, this is one case that privatization is not a solution. And, Mr. President, how do you propose to bring private military contractors under a system of law?

    THE PRESIDENT: I appreciate that very much. I wasn't kidding -- (laughter.) I was going to -- I pick up the phone and say, Mr. Secretary, I've got an interesting question. (Laughter.) This is what delegation -- I don't mean to be dodging the question, although it's kind of convenient in this case, but never -- (laughter.) I really will -- I'm going to call the Secretary and say you brought up a very valid question, and what are we doing about it? That's how I work. I'm -- thanks. (Laughter.)

    Disgracing the USA daily...can't they just concede having him "out front" isn't working and its time to shut him up. You would think with his six month campaign to put sweets and flowers on the occupation, and having to face the fact that polling is still in the tank...its time to shift gears.
