Bush, Pleasing God by Skipping Briefings on Sunday
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.)
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.
