Bush's swearing

God, the liberal blogs and the mainstream media in the U.S. are such dolts sometimes. Here they are trying to score points with their constituencies about Bush using the word, "shit" and they are missing the whole fucking point of the conversation. The point of the conversation is MUCH more interesting than whether the President resorted to words most of us use fairly often.

In this transcript of the conversation, provided by and commented on by the Independent Online, Tony Blair is asking Bush if he can go to the Middle East to broker a deal. Bush tells Blair that he won't allow it and that Bush is sending Kindasleazy Rice instead. Isn't it more interesting to note that Tony Blair really is the lapdog of American presidents rather than whether or not Bush swears? Snip:

Bush: What about Kofi? (inaudible) His attitude to ceasefire and everything else ... happens. (Change of subject. Now they are on to Lebanon and the UN secretary general, Kofi Annan)

Blair: Yeah, no I think the (inaudible) is really difficult. We can't stop this unless you get this international business agreed.

Bush: Yeah. (Mr Blair is trying to push the idea of a UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon. That 'yeah' does not sound like a wholehearted agreement)

Blair: I don't know what you guys have talked about, but as I say I am perfectly happy to try and see what the lie of the land is, but you need that done quickly because otherwise it will spiral. (Meaning: 'Please, George, let me go to the Middle East and be a world statesman')

Bush: I think Condi is going to go pretty soon. (Meaning: 'No')

Blair: But that's, that's, that's all that matters. But if you... you see it will take some time to get that together. (Meaning: 'Oh well, all right, if you don't want me to. Just a thought')

Bush: Yeah, yeah.
