Details About 'Party Boy' George W. Bush's Drunken Driving Incident Revealed

Australian tennis legend John Newcombe has lifted the lid on "party boy" George W. Bush and the drunken-driving revelation that clouded his 2000 US presidential election campaign.

"George was a bit of a party boy in those days," Newcombe said of George W.

"I noticed that George was sort of eyeing me off," he added as they began drinking "reasonable-sized mugs of beer."

"I put on a bit of pace, and he'd keep pace with me. A little silent game was going on.

"After about four of these, I picked the glass up in my teeth without my hands and skulled it straight down and I said, 'What are you made of, George?' And so he had to do that."

Newcombe said he then drank another beer from the wrong side of the glass: "I looked at him and go, 'Have you got any guts, George, or what's your story?' So he did that."

The pair staggered back to their car, and Newcombe's wife, Angie, offered to drive, but Bush insisted he was fine.

"We had about three miles to drive down this road along the sea, and after about a mile he got pulled over," Newcombe recalled.

"The cop got out of the car and made him walk the line and back and he kind of did it all right, but he was a bit cheeky when he was doing it," he said.

4. So this story is a second-hand account about a guy who has been off the map for almost 6 years

and who hasn't run for president in almost 10 years, about a drunk driving arrest (in which no one was injured) from 24 years before that? Must be a slow news day at businessinsider.com.

5. I knew guys like Bush, and the way he drank.

Remember that bruise on his cheek from "fainting while choking on a pretzel?"

I knew damn well that story was pure horseshit.
I had seen the heavy drinkers I knew get those, they got them when they'd get literally falling-down drunk.

It was just another of many instances of pure hypocrisy from Bush.

6. Too little, too late on this story.

It is ancient history now and doesn't help the Democrats one iota to bring it up. We know what kind of person w bush is. The damage is done.

8. If only a drunken youth was his only flaw.

I doubt this would have kept him out of the White House either way.
