US award to honour Howard's leadership
The Prime Minister is to receive a prestigious American award for outstanding leadership in public life, at a ceremony in Sydney tomorrow night.
John Howard will be presented with the Woodrow Wilson Award from the political centre of the same name in Washington, which is part of the influential Smithsonian Institution.
It is the first time a serving political leader has been recognised and Mr Howard is the first person outside North America and Europe to receive the honour.
The US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, was a member of the judging panel.
Mr Howard's award will be recognised in a recorded message from the US President George W Bush, who will also deliver a message to Australians.

what are mates for .....

The Editor,

Sydney Morning Herald.                                                             August 21, 2005. 

 

 

So, our Prime Minister for life is to receive the US Woodrow Wilson Award for public service, having “served with distinction in public office & having shown a special commitment to seeking out informed opinion & thoughtful views“ (‘Howard gets top US gong for service’, Herald, August 21).

 

 

George Bush would have to be flattered.

Flaba-yabba

Yes, little Bushie would have been flabagastered for not receiving a Woodrow Award himself but quite please the brown noses would be honoured...

Shove it up your...

GUS THINKS BETWEEN THE LINES...
US award belongs to all Australians: PM
August 22, 2005 - 11:09AM
Prime Minister John Howard has said a top US award he'll receive on Monday honours all Australians.
I DON'T WANT TO BE HONOURED AT THE SAME TIME AS HIM FOR SOMETHING HE DID WHICH WAS DECEITFUL. AND MURDEROUS.

Mr Howard will become the first Australian to be presented with the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service at a dinner in Sydney.
A SWIFT IRREVERSIBLE WAY TO DEVALUE THE AWARD

Named after the 28th US president, the award is to be presented to the prime minister via a pre-recorded video link with US President George W Bush.
SCRATCH DUBYA'S BACK AND HE'LL SCRATCH YOUR REAR END

Mr Howard is the first recipient of the award outside North America or Europe.

"I am very honoured by this, I do however see it more as a compliment to our country than to me," Mr Howard told Macquarie Radio.
THIS GOON GONG TO MR HOWARD ONLY.
LEAVE US OUT OF IT.
WE DO NOT DESERVE IT SINCE WE OPPOSE YOUR CROOK POLICIES... AND WE DON'T WANT IT.

"This country is respected in a way it hasn't been before and I see this very much as a compliment and reward for Australia than an award to John Howard."
AUSTRALIA IS SO RESPECTED THAT MANY PEOPLE LIVING HERE FEEL SO ASHAMED OF THE PRESENT REPUTATION DUE TO JOHNNEE'S STUPID POLITICS.

The Woodrow Wilson Centre deems Mr Howard worthy of the award for having "served with distinction in public office" and shown "special commitment to seeking out informed opinions and thoughtful views".
BLIMEY! ALL JOHNNEE KNOWS MOST IS ABOUT GRABBING A LITTLE WAR OPPORTUNISM AND TELLING PORKIES, GOOD ONES BUT PORKIES NONETHELESS

The award coincides with federal Treasurer Peter Costello warning of the dangers of anti-American sentiment taking hold in Australia.
LOOK MATE, WE DO NOT HATE AMERICA BUT WE HATE ITS BADLY POTTY-TRAINED PRESENT PRESIDENT

"There's no doubt in my mind that anti-Americanism can easily morph into anti-Westernism, particularly we've seen that with terrorists," Mr Costello told the Nine network.
SOME OF US DO NOT MORPH INTO ANYTHING BUT TRUE DEMOCRACY DEFENDERS WHILE BEING BOMBARDED WITH FRAMED UGLY ARGUMENTS THAT ARE IRRELEVANT TO OUR OPPOSITION TO JOHNNEE'S GOVERNMENT POLICIES.

WE CARE ABOUT THE WORLD, WITHOUT HAVING TO GRANDSTAND, INVADE, WAGE WARS AND BEHAVE LIKE THICK BULLIES IN A SCHOOL-YARD... WE VALUE GREATER IDEALS THAN THE SEWER-PIPE POLICIES OF THE PRESENT U.S. ADMINISTRATION.
