Did you see our idiot in chief ask the leader of Lithuania ? If it was alright if he called him "a piece of work" ?

anyone got a link to it ?

This was the most idiotic I think I`ve ever seen the crumb, and believe me I`ve seen some idiotic things from him.

2. He should've asked Bush if he minded if he called him a piece of shit.
But, I thought he handled it well by shrugging it off.

13. It was a remarkable display of international rudeness.
This is diplomacy?

Bush outdoes himself, and undoes himself.

His good-old-boy powergame falls flat among the more sophisticated. He looked like a dick alright. What an embarrassment.

I got a yuk out of it, too.

19. Oh, man. I admit to filing that one away.
I can imagine that couplet in reverse. With Bush asking to fart.

Very accommodating, and European, to respond by agreeably asking to smoke.

LOL

5. I didn't see it last night
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 06:07 PM by Island Blue
but I saw it a couple of weeks ago when it first aired. If I'm not mistaken that was the same press conference where Shrub started giggling when a reporter asked him a question about death and destruction in Iraq. I think I've run out of words to describe how embarrassed I am that this "man" represents the United States of America.

Sorry, I should have looked at the menu first. It's usually on at the previous times. Many apologies.

16. blacks
That reminds me of something else I've heard.

Did Bush really ask the president of Brazil if he had blacks in his country?

21. I saw it last night --- and also the 1st time it aired
I just sat watching and shaking my head back and forth -- no no no...
He's such an idiot. I guess I don't see any humor in his antics anymore. Pathetic.

Here is the link to the transcript.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/06/2005062...

Q Mr. President, you spoke of common values were with Europe and the United States, and a strong Europe. Would you say that today, after the two summits between European Union and the United States, that the partnership has even become again a friendship between Europe and United States, and how you see the role of the Luxembourg presidency in that issue?

PRESIDENT BUSH: Well, I appreciate that. First, the relations with Europe are important relations, and they've -- because we do share values. And they're universal values -- they're not American values or European values, they're universal values. And those values, being universal, ought to be applied everywhere. And that's human rights, human dignity, rule of law, transparency when it comes to government, decency. And, obviously, if the EU and the U.S. speak with one voice on these issues, it's more likely to hear -- people will hear it.

I think the friendship between our respective countries in the EU are strong. Obviously, there's been a difference of opinion recently on certain issues, but that doesn't prevent the American people from holding the good folks of Luxembourg or Portugal in high esteem. There's a lot of traffic between our country, a lot of tourism, a lot of trade, a lot of commerce between individual countries within the EU and the United States. And that's because of mutual respect and the desire for people to get to know the world better.

In terms of your Prime Minister, he's an interesting guy. (Laughter.) He's a lot of fun to be around. He promotes serious business in a way that endears himself to people. And so I think his presidency has been an important presidency for the EU during difficult times, and he's handled it well. And I was going to say he's a piece of work, but that might not translate too well. Is that all right, if I call you a "piece of work"? (Laughter.)

PRESIDENT JUNCKER: Okay.

PRESIDENT BUSH: He's done a good job, and I value his friendship. I know it's really important for people at our -- when we sit down at the table, to have a friendship, so we can discuss things in a frank way, in an honest way, without fear of being able to tell people what's on our mind. That's the best way to get things done, and Jean-Claude certainly has been that way, as has Jose.
