he's a dumbass

At the G8 luncheon yesterday, U.S. Prez, Billy Bush, didn't realize his mic was on and made the following comments to Tony Blair... it's laughable and humiliating to see how truly stupid our President is!

ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - A microphone picked up an unaware President Bush saying on Monday Syria should press Hezbollah to "stop doing this sh--" and that his secretary of state may go to the Middle East soon.

Bush was talking privately to British Prime Minister Tony Blair during a lunch at the Group of Eight summit in St Petersburg about an upsurge of violence in the Middle East, not realizing a microphone was transmitting what he said.

"I think Condi (Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is going to go pretty soon," Bush said.

Blair replied: "Right, that's all that matters, it will take some time to get that together."

Rice said on Sunday she was thinking of going to the Middle East if it would help.

Blair said Rice has "got to succeed" if she goes to the region.

Bush replied: "What they need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this sh--."

The U.S. president blames Syria and Iran for supporting Hezbollah guerrillas operating in southern Lebanon.

Bush also seemed to complain about U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan wanting an immediate ceasefire to stop the violence between Israel and Hezbollah. "I don't like the sequence of it," Bush said. "His attitude is basically ceasefire and everything else happens."

Blair said: "I think the thing that is really difficult is you can't stop this unless you get this international presence agreed."

G8 leaders, in a statement on Sunday, suggested the U.N. Security Council should consider an international security and monitoring presence along the Lebanese-Israeli border. Later, Bush said he felt like telling Annan to telephone Syrian President Bashir Assad "and make something happen."

"We're not blaming Israel and we're not blaming the Lebanese government," he said.

The two leaders also appeared to chat about the Doha Round of world trade talks, stalled by lack of common ground among governments on farm subsidies and intellectual property rights.
"I just want some movement. Yesterday I didn't see much movement, the desire to move," said Bush.

"It may be that it's impossible," Blair replied.

Ultimately Blair noticed the microphone and hastily switched it off, but not before the recording had reached news media.

In the chummy conversation between long-time allies, Bush teased the British leader about a sweater Blair had apparently given him.

"Thanks for the sweater, it was awfully thoughtful of you. I know you picked it out yourself," Bush said. "Oh, absolutely," said Blair.

You know, I knew Bush was stupid, but I didn't realize how profoundly stupid he is. It does seem that Blair has a head on his shoulders... but it's like he's having to talk to Bush like a baby. How embarrassing for us Americans to have someone in office that has such a complete lack of knowledge of the world and what is going on around him.

Seems like the only thing Billy Bush is interested in are all the photo ops when shaking hands w/ other Presidents and the likes. He always rushes in, grabs the hand and turns to smile his ridiculous smile for the cameras.

WHAT is he thinking????!!

Maybe a good ass whippin would help, but I doubt it. Personally, I think he needs to be dropped down into the war zone over in Iraq and made to co-exist w/ the evildoers... maybe then he'd get a clue. Maybe... but then again, prolly not!

Be fair, Tooners! He wasn't elected for his intelligence! He was elected because he understands...er...

Actually, if you can trust the surveys they took after the last election, believe it or not, it seems most people that voted for W. Bush, inc. did so, not because of the economy or the "War on Terror", but because he opposes gay marriage and is in favor of prayer in schools.

He hasn't done a whole lot for the welfare of the country, but hey...at least he understands...

Sorry to say this but wasn't he elected by the hicks and rednecks of America?

Plus there was another thing that he said during this summit to Tony Blair (his favorite pet): "We gotta tell Syria to ask Hizbollah to stop this shit"!!

according to polls and research done by several upstanding people and organizations including Robert Kennedy Jr. and the Libertarian party, bush was never voted into office. he rigged both the 2000 and 2004 elections. al gore should have been prez in 2000 and john kerry should have been in 2004.

He's never short of comedy...

I don't understand how Bush was elected to another term, but thank God he will be out in 2008. Too bad for the shmuck who gets in office after him and has to clean up the messes Bush made.

At least he makes for a good laugh.

hey, another interesting fact that i just remembered about this post is that there is indeed a billy bush and he is prez bush's cousin. and guess what dear sweet billy bush does for a living???? he's a host/anchor/whatever for a hollywood tabloid tv show.

The Moody Minstrel said...

Why am I not surprised?

tooners said...

you know, it's not so much as WHAT he said, but just how he doesn't seem to know anything about what's going on in this part of the world.

i can't wait for someone new to come in and hopefully help the country.

anyone believe that hilary clinton has a chance? i'm wondering altho i can't see it.

i personally believe that someone needs to tackle this global warming... and all the things al gore is speaking of... but that's little hippie chick me.

mae mae said...

i'm totally hoping hilary runs for office in 2008. if so, i'll definitely be voting for her. i would love to see her and al gore team up together too. i think they would be very powerful and virtually unstoppable.

I tend to be in favor of Bush--maybe for his pro-Israel policy--but I admit we have an idiot in office. Gotta call a spade a spade, I guess.

Concering him getting the election rigged I highly doubt that conspiracy theory just like I doubt most conspiracy theories. Of cours there's always a chance but it seems very unlikely based on the evidence.
