Bush Shrugs Off Democratic Race, Attacks
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=544&nci...

WASHINGTON - President Bush says he is paying virtually no attention to the Democratic race for his job, even as the candidates sharpen their criticism of his performance.

"Well, occasionally it blips on my radar screen, but not nearly as much as you would think. I've got a job to do. I'm occupied," Bush said in a taped interview telecast Monday night on the Fox Broadcast Network.

"Their slogan is, 'Vote for me, I don't like George Bush,'" Bush said. "The American people are going to make that ultimate judgment as to whether or not I ought to be re-elected."

The president's 2004 campaign has been humming for months. He has raised more than $65 million at 21 fund-raising events since June for a Republican nomination for which he faces no opponent. His campaign offices employ dozens of people.

1. Well, let him maintain his delusions.
They are about all he really has to look forward to...

4. News is Opinion/Opinion is News.
Bush said he insulates himself from the "opinions" that seep into news coverage by getting his news from his own aides. He said he scans headlines, but rarely reads news stories.


"I appreciate people's opinions, but I'm more interested in news," the president said. "And the best way to get the news is from objective sources, and the most objective sources I have are people on my staff who tell me what's happening in the world."


He has no clue how idiotic he sounds. The man is certifiable.

5. This was on Fox?
I assume that the collective Dem candidates got equal time right afterwards in "Fair & Balanced" land.

6. So at one point it "occasionally blips
on my radar screen" and yet he knows what their so-called slogan is. Bullshit.

8. I'll bet he spends most of his time worrying about this
"Well, occasionally it blips on my radar screen, but not nearly as much as you would think." I would guess perhaps 8 - 10 hours a day. What else has he been doing or gotten done, huh?

9. To counterpunch GWB, one merely sight the fact that..

An obvious ploy to stop the bleeding. This admin is getting more and more transparent.

10. Exactly, and that "Can I Have $87 Billion more Dollars" speech...
... didn't exactly win over the hearts and minds of Americans, either.

Bush = Melba.

Let's keep up the pressure,
Jennifer :-)
