Meet The Press Moments

All I have to say is, this is our president? This guy, slouched in a chair cowering in front of Tim Russert? Bush likes to play the master of low expectations, which he then exceeds. He did it with the debates in the last election -- lowering the bar all the way to the ground and then sailing over it. But today, if he was trying to look at all presidential, he failed miserably. Yes - a miserable failure.

Calpundit culls some of the NRO cpnservative response.

Transcript of Bush's Meet The Press interview.

More later, right now I'm off to finally see "Master and Commander" which is about someone in charge who is actually deserving of respect.

I had the TiVo record it because I went skiing today. Now I am going to have to make some coffee, get out of these ski clothes, and see what George had to say for himself :-)

Well I got through it. He had some "interesting" things to say as usual.

Can you imagine Jack Aubrey not showing up for military duty, skipping his physical?

I can't.

He'd make an interesting president. The press would get a kick out of it.

Bob, I thought your entry said "Jack Aubrey for Pretzel!"

This election year can't be over quickly enough...

oohhhh.... i couldn't even read halfway thru the transcript. gah. does it seem to anyone else that English (good, decent, grammar-fearing English) is a foreign language to that man?

Shrub, not Russert, that is.

I don't think he has a native language.

It's not unusual for politicians to make things up as they go along, and get lost along the way. But Bush can't even get from one end of a sentence to the other without losing his train of thought. Such as it is.

Choo choo??
