Moore patriotic as ever in Syracuse
Michael Moore recently visited Syracuse University and had this to say:
He added that Bush is the epitome of what all Americans want for themselves: to live their entire lives and not have to work.
"He's Ferris Bueller," Moore said. "Ferris was cool. Ferris got away with everything. The Democrats are like Ferris Bueller's sister, sitting in the police station with Charlie Sheen, with a scowl on their faces."Ironic, considering Moore considers himself a member of the never-met-a-social-welfare-program-I-didn't-like party.
Moore had other things to say:
Moore also showed some never-before-seen footage from the "Fahrenheit 9/11" DVD to emphasize his message against the war in Iraq. Moore said he blames the media in part for not depicting the events in a realistic light, adding that not only can the Iraq war not be won, but that it should not be won.
"You don't deliver democracy through the barrel of a gun," he said. "It has to be organic."Note that, even though Moore hopes the war will not be won, which would mean that many thousands of American military personnel would have to die, it would be wrong to question his patriotism.
