George W. Bush's Olympic Hypocrisy

From his speech in China (emphasis mine):

We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labor rights not to antagonize China’s leaders but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential.

The United States believes the people of China deserve the fundamental liberty that is the natural right of all human beings…So America stands in firm opposition to China's detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates, and religious activists.
If he was at least smiling and fighting off laughter as he gives such speeches, I could respect the man as an asshole with conviction. As it stands, I can only think of him as too dense to recognize the contradiction that is this President giving this speech.
