37. It was a terrible interview for Bush
Edited on Sun Feb-08-04 09:59 PM by jumptheshadow
The guy came off as shallow, shifty, defensive, dishonest and inept. He clearly was nervous while being questioned about his National Guard record -- and he kept on equating the questions about his individual record with criticism of the Guard itself. He must have said "I was honorably discharged" four or five times. Perhaps he doesn't realize that many Americans will say to themselves, "Yeah, because your Daddy bailed you out." He seemed to get a gleam in his eye when, after saying he would open his papers up for inspection, he added, "If you can find anything in those records." (That wasn't a verbatim quote, but he said something like that.)

Russert questioned him about the aggressively partisan nature of his administration and he talked about his record as governor in Texas. Pathetic.

Russert introduced the topic of the economy, and Bush, relieved because the subject was being changed off of his military record, quickly got flattened when Russert read off the statistics on joblessness. Bush acted clueless, and basically pawned everything off on 9/11.

There were so many times when Bush stumbled or drifted off or just sounded dumb and arrogant.
