The first line of defense for George Bush’s unscripted comments:
Bush expressed his frustration with the United Nations and his disgust with the militant Islamic group and its backers in Syria as he talked to British Prime Minister Tony Blair during the closing lunch at the Group of Eight summit.
â€œSee the irony is that what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this s— and itâ€™s over,â€ Bush told Blair as he chewed on a buttered roll.
As he chats with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Bush expresses amazement that it will take Putin and an unidentified leader just as long to fly home to Moscow as it will take him to fly back to Washington. Putinâ€™s reply could not be heard.
â€œYou eight hours? Me too. Russiaâ€™s a big country and youâ€™re a big country. Takes him eight hours to fly home. Not Coke, diet Coke. … Russiaâ€™s big and so is China. Yo Blair, whatâ€™re you doing? Are you leaving,â€ Bush said.
…will be that George Bush is a “regular guy” and how much the wingnuts just love their straight-talking Prez with his simplistic world view.
Which is why we’re in the mess we’re in because we need to do better than Earl from down at the garage who thinks that fixing the Middle East is as simple as gettin’ folks to stop doin’ that “shit”. George Bush doesn’t offend because he’s crass…he offends me because he is such a dumbass.
