Is It Just Me Or ...?

Isn't an odd coincidence that Howard has just reintroduced himself to the US publc a week before Dick Cheney's visit? Who is this a marketing plan for?

My guess is it\s for Cheney. When the US Vice President addresses the US-Australia alliance from our shores next week, a lot more people will be more familiar with the John Howard standing beside him. Much of the US population will be more believing that Cheney's activities have international support.

If the US people only knew just how much money Halliburton has tied up in Australia, they'd be able to see the scheming.

Televised dog-wagging may bring Dick up in the polls, but it might be the kiss of death for our PM. Not that, I reckon, Dick would give a stuff.

On the other hand, if the idea was to make Mr Howard look good, it will be an abysmal faliure. Cheney is a symbol of the war that everyone is finally starting to hate. All the visit will engender for John is more venom directed against him. And justifyably so.
