The Bushes on Larry King
From crooksandliars.com

President Bush and wife Laura fielded questions from CNN’s Larry King Thursday night.

In a mostly softball interview with Larry King Thursday night, President Bush said that he doesn’t get intelligence briefings on Sunday.  (Presumably because that’s the day the Lord takes a break from those updates, too.)

  • CNN:

    WASHINGTON (CNN)—President Bush isn’t troubled by some of the weakest approval ratings of his presidency, he said Thursday in a wide-ranging birthday interview with CNN’s “Larry King Live.”

    “When history looks back, I’d rather be judged as solving problems and being correct, rather than being popular,” Bush said.

    “The president that chases the opinion poll is the president that will have failed policy,” Bush said in an exclusive joint interview along with his wife, Laura, at the White House.

    Some members of Congress are nervous about the effect Bush’s political problems might have on their own fortunes in this fall’s midterm elections.

    In typical W-speak he meant CREATING problems.

    The soap opera continues. Ole Teflon “W” can do no wrong nor admit he did any wrong. He must have relied on Ole Karl Rowe to prepare him for such a demanding, inquisitive interview with biggest Kiss A** that is Larry King.

    Perhaps the fact that “W” speaks to GOD explains his inability to listen to the weakest approval ratings of all time. When GOD is on your side, then why please the dead Iriqi’s whose country we have destroyed for those so-called WMD’s that never existed. This guy is either arrogant and stupid or just plain ignorant.

    “W” my friend, this is GOD speaking from the bench, “you are a fool!” “I do not speak to idiots, listen to my children of America, they do not support your stupid ignorant policies.” “You have no chance of passing through the Pearly Gates for having created a fabricated war in Iraq.” ” You will Keneth Lay in that place where it is HOT!”
