Bush asks himself questions @ news conference

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/15230633 /

Bush asks himself questions

Dissatisfied with the reporters' prickly questions, Bush went about answering his own. He said abandoning Iraq would allow terrorists to launch new attacks on America. "How do I know that would happen?" Bush asked himself. "Because that's what the enemy has told us," he answered.

When a questioner asked about the credibility of the administration's threats toward North Korea, Bush said: "I thought you were going to ask . . . 'How come you didn't use military action?' " Bush then replied: "My answer is that I believe the commander in chief must try all diplomatic measures."

"I'll ask myself a follow-up," Bush continued. "If that's the case, why did you use military action in Iraq?" His answer to himself: "Because we tried the diplomacy."




:crazy:

2. What a Nut Job!
It's bad enough that all the questions at these things are scripted, but for him to engage in "asking himsef a follow up" is absurd.

5. It's gotten to the point
Only he is listening to his lies, so I guess a conversation with himself is probably the best audience he can get.

10. I'm so glad . . .
I'm so glad that none of the assembled sycophants and stenographers had the temerity to challenge our glorious commander-in-chief, to remind him that the usual way a press conference works is that the folks with notepads ask the questions while the person behind the podium answers those questions. Or not.

After all, 9/11 has truly changed everything.

11. the voices in his head, emanating from his ear piece, are gettin' louder!
why even bother having the "media" in attendance? just let him stand up at the podium and talk to himself for an hour. that's what he's doing anyway.
