What Does Bush Really Think?

In an unintentionally broadcasted conversation, Bush told Blair that Syria should press on Hezbollah “to stop doing this shit.” Yahoo News reported on the comments this morning, but I thought that I would give you a taste here.

“What about Kofi Annan? I dont like the sequence of it. His attitude is basically ceasefire and everything else happens,” said Bush.

“What does he think? He thinks if Lebanon turns out fine, if he gets a solution in Israel and Palestine, Iraq goes in the right way, he’s done it. That’s what this whole thing’s about. It’s the same with Iran,” added Blair.

But Blair also cautioned that “the thing that is really difficult is you can’t stop this unless you get this international presence agreed,” an apparent reference to the G8 leaders’ call for UN consideration of an international security force in Lebanon.

Bush said he wanted to tell “Kofi to get on the phone with (Syria President Bashar al) Assad and make something happen. We’re not blaming Israel and we’re not blaming the Lebanese government.”

I think it is great that we are able to hear the private thoughts of the president. It kind of makes me feel even about that phone tapping garbage.

  1. Maybe if he talked like that all the time we wouldn’t think he was a total dumbass. Just a run of the mill dumbass.

    This is the telling comment, tho.
    “Gotta go home. Got something to do tonight.”

    Yick…Poor Laura….

  2. Well, I for one can understand Bush’s frustration. He can’t seem to get the rest of the world to heel for him like his good Poodle Tony so willingly does. And how nice of Tony to “prepare the ground” for Condi. Good doggy!

  3. Finally… something I can agree w/Bush on. I haven’t yet so far, other than his candyassed “tax cuts” (should be more, for everyone, with a generous helping of real tax REFORM)…

    Seriously, this campaign by Israel to root out the cowardly Hamas and Hezbollah bunch (cowardly b/c they hide in populated areas, instead of being real men), I’m on Israel’s side here. They’ve been kicked around for decades, hell MANY decades, and I’d get tired of the bullying too.

    Thing is, Bush is expecting the U.N. to *do* something, which is beyond their capabilities. If it helps Israel, or the U.S., they’re gonna drag their collective feets. What a bunch of assholes.

    Seriously, there are only two ways this mess will end:

    1. Anti-Israel/anti-Jew idiots either go balls-out and “final solution”-ize their “problem”, once and for all – which will be messy, as Israel won’t go down w/o a huge fight. Or…

    2. The above idiots will stop trying to “wipe Israel off the map” and realize Israel won’t give in.

  4. That Bush/Blair wish for some UN or international agreement is the funniest thing for me. We certainly pursued that prior to Iraq. Perhaps the “irony” part is that we did not give a shit about UN support for Iraq, and we do now with Israel/Lebanon.

    I am not implying that the UN is a just organization, but it seems that Bush flip flops as well. Republicans and Democrats are family. I am scared of the reunion.

  5. Maybe it’s not a real “wish”, as Bush and Blair probably think – and justifiably so – that the UN is a bunch of sniveling, useless shitheels.

  6. Actually, for once, Bush has a point.

    If Syria could persuade these other people not to annoy the Israelis, relative peace might be restored.

    Mind you, it is up there with him saying that if only the army could find President Hussein’s WMDs, and plans for using them to attack America three days after we stopped him, his political stock might rise.

  7. “Leave Israel alone, Israel won’t bother you.”

    Nah… too simple. Not when you’re programmed from young’un stage to believe all kinds of idiotic nonsense about Jews.

  8. I don’t want to think I’m some paranoid conspiracy theorist, but doesn’t that seem a little staged? Wouldn’t one have to be a tad stupid not to assume with microphones everywhere in the room that some might be live?
    Couldn’t it be an excuse just to speak frankly and express opinions it would not be politic to make official? Plus, he gets bonus points from the base whenever he shoots his mouth off, no? Comes across as honesty or something?
