"The irony is, what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this ****, and it's over," Mr Bush was heard to say.

Soon after Mr Blair noticed that the microphone was open and switched it off, reports say. "


Too Funny. I agree wholeheartedly.

edit....ahh it's bleeped out. Surely if Bush can talk like that we should allow it here, no?



I found this funny too.

Mr. Bush also told a staffer that he didn't need speech notes.

"No, I'm just going to make it up as I go along," Mr. Bush said. "Some of these guys talk too long."
:rofl

Well you know it helps to laugh. I know I got a kick out of it. What makes me laugh harder are the people who are freaked about how inappropriate this is? :roll:

Good Grief don't they know he's a :cowboy: I like people who curse but I guess not everyone feels that way. :rofl

Re: Bush Expletive

I found his commentary realistic and NOT offensive at all. In fact, I thought it was rather charming that he was being so open about how he felt. I think that's one of the reasons he is so likeable--he is down to earth (even though he stinks at being prez).

Since one had nothing to do with the other what exactly is your point? Did Bush's statement have anything to do with committing a felony in a federal court?

Bingo!!!!!!

Payback must be a beotch. :rofl

But for once, I agree with Bush. I'll go one even further. If thos folks over there cannot clean their own house of the scourge of the likes of Hamas and Hezbollah they are either retarded cowards or they support their ideology.

Either way, if they can't or won't clean house on their own, I totally support Isreal kicking their butts. Wah wah wah.....

If you sleep with the terrorists then you gotta expect to get a few bombs.

Re: Bush Expletive

I found it funny. Imagine the uproar it would have caused if Clinton has said it lol. Clinton lied so his wife wouldn't have found out, hmm that has NEVER in the history of the world happend lol. The BBC is not anti-American just, like lots of Europeans are anti-Bush admin. The BBC is quite neutral in European terms.

I agree, Syria needs to stop hezbolla from this $hit, what's wrong with saying that it's completely accurate. The $hit that hezbolla does is indeed bullshit.
AS for the anti-bbc sentiment, lighten up guys, BBC is probably by far the most neutral of all the world media's, especially when it comes to issues that do not involve the UK.

I had not seen the footage at the time I posted in this thread. While I agree with what Bush said, he looked utterly disgusting as he chewed his food. I can't imagine what it must be like for Laura Bush to have to watch him chew food like a cow with food in his mouth. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww. Why doesn't our president have better table manners?

They have to be, else the regulators come after them. And unlike other news organisations you can complain over thier coverage to an independant council... but hey dont let such things keep the illusion spread by right wing and pro Isreal people that the BBC is anti everything they believe in.

Bush is an idiot and an embarrassment. What was so offensive about the clip wasn't the fact that he used an expletive, it was that we couldn't stop gorging himself and talking with his mouth full. When Bush gives speeches he reveals what a fool he is, but when he is caught off tape is when you really get a glimpse at the clown that we have in the whitehouse.
Don't agree? Compare Tony Blair to Bush in any news clip and you will see that these two men are worlds apart in intelligence, class and tact.

He lied so the evidence couldn't be used against him in a federal lawsuit or be used to remove him from office.

Clinton lied about Iraq, and bombed them for 4 days based on that lie.

So... Clinton lied and no one died?

I don't think I've -ever- seen a post that is comprised -completely- of ad homonen attacks.

This is, sadly, a first.

Oh wait -- my bad.
"Don't agree" is a question that sets up an ad hominen attack.

I've seen it, awesome to see the true face of our leaders laid bear in an unguarded moment as opposed to the spin of their managed media appearences. Some people, some on this forum amusingly, are far too precious over their elected representatives. They are all guys like everyone else, enjoying the free champagne and grabbing an extra roll, you saw that in this footage. Better still you saw that all the pseudo-philosophical nonsense they dress their speeches up with is nothing but window dressing, and that between themselves they can talk straight.

I thought Bush seemed much more at ease with himself, and with his assessment of the situation in the Middle East, meanwhile Blair did himself no favours to allay the 'lapdog' jibes, coming over to stand on Bush's arm then stumbling over his words, he seemed like the sycophant the media has nailed him as. Not exactly Prime-Ministerial and hardly very eloquent, not what you would expect from a private schooled barrister.

As for the BBC, last night they were again wasting my time with a film preview at primetime, bloody entertainment news that has no place in the headlines. Why? Well because it was a British film of course. It's not anti-American, as some people seem to believe that anything that's not Fox News must be. It does though, often lapse in it's agenda setting for a news channel.
