Do you think he has agita?
Today Bush met with U.S. automakers, who were there to whine about the state of their industry. Here’s a useless quote from the Chimperor:
“We will work to make sure that this industry is as vibrant and solid as possible,” Bush told reporters after an Oval Office meeting with top executives of U.S.-based automakers General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and DaimlerChrysler AG’s Chrysler unit.
While those guys were whining, get a load of Poppy Bush, unloading on BLOGGERS, of all people, blaming them for the current political climate, lol… (Think Progress also has the video). He was on Faux News, of course.
GRETA: Why do you think it’s gotten so adversarial? Tonight is literacy. Everybody comes in from all different sides and wants to help. It seems like oftentimes in Washington, you know, on something we all want to work towards it’s not necessarily so civilized. It’s not so pleasant.
H.W. BUSH: It’s true but that’s not new really. I mean, you go back in history and you’ll find that there was always adversarial politics. There was always gut fighting. And it’s probably a little worse now given the electronic media and the bloggers and all these kinds of things. But I don’t despair about it. I think things — there is a pendulum at work at times so you swing away from the incivility back to more normal climate.
Gee, you mean the uncivil tone had nothing to do with Karl Rove and Ken Mehlman? What a laff riot.
