Bush Says Iraqi Leaders Will Want U.S. Forces to Stay to Help

On domestic policy, Mr. Bush sidestepped a question on whether he agreed with a Florida law barring gay men and women from adopting children, saying he was not aware of it. But he said that while "children can receive love from gay couples," he believed that "studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman."

....

He brushed aside questions about his relationship with the Congressional Black Caucus, which he met with on Wednesday and invited to the White House once in his first term. Asked why the group, now composed of 43 Democratic African-American members of Congress, had received only the single first-term invitation, he responded, "That's just the way it worked out."

....

He laughed when asked about his admission on Wednesday, during a news conference, that he had not read the article in the periodical Foreign Affairs written in 2000 by Condoleezza Rice, his new secretary of state, laying out his foreign policy.
"I don't know what you think the world is like, but a lot of people don't just sit around reading Foreign Affairs," he said, chuckling. "I know this is shocking to you."


....


But Mr. Bush said firmly, "I'm not through yet," and continued to describe how the Iraqi elections would be part of an initial wave of democratization in the Middle East.

1. Thanks for doing the dirty work
I couldn't bring myself to read it.

I'm glad I didn't see more.

4. No problem.
The "I'm not through yet" quote scares me...

2. "...a lot of people don't just sit around reading Foreign Affairs..."
At odds with the image he's trying to craft (with media aid) for his new term:

Another popular misperception: that Bush doesn't read. Aides describe numerous debates inside the Oval Office, where the president digs deep into his briefing books. "I've seen it time and time again," says Rove. "We all get the briefing papers the night before, we've all read them, and he'll inevitably have thought about three steps ahead of anyone in the room." And he's not just poring over white papers. Friends and aides speak of his passion for novels...

3. Bush ready for men in white jackets
On the basis of this piece alone, Bush should be hauled off to the nearest psychiatric ward. Either he's completely delusional, or a dangerous, psychopathic liar or both.
