For Bush, Leaks are Laughing Matter

Bush laughing (generic)President George Bush was in Argentina today when a reporter asked him a question that was answered rather oddly:

When an Argentine reporter said sources told him that Kirchner planned to ask Bush for help reaching a new financial agreement on its debts with the International Monetary Fund, Bush expressed mock surprise that government officials can act as secret-leaking sources.

“I’m not going to ask you who they are, of course,” Bush said, drawing laughter from the U.S. contingent in the room. “Inside joke here, for my team.”

You know what’s even more hilarious? Sending that reporter to jail for not divulging their sources. There’s a punchline in the colon for ya, mister smarty-pants reporter.

Update: Wonkette has the press pool transcript.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
