    Llad, you left out the most common answer, 9/11.

    I'll be watching, thanks for the reminder. I would love it if Russert sneaks in a unapproved question. Bush is just too much when he gets flustered.

    You misunderestimate him.

    His ego took over his reasoning. As I understand it, he is doing the interview against the advice of his advisors. He's walking into an ambush.

    If I was on his staff, I'd get busy on an apology speach and pray for that an act of God breaks knocks out the broadcasting.

    This is just one man's opinion but it seems this whole Iraq issue is almost like the Monica Lewinsky "scandel" that Bill had; people who already disliked the president get even more pissed, while those who favored him continue to do so.

    You're absolutely right, Steve. What's worse: a hummer in the Oval Office or 500 dead U.S. soldiers? I think we all know the answer to that....9/11.

    How could I be absolutely right if I don't know how to spell "scandal"? ;)

    I'm sure the President will be well rehearsed for any questions that come his way. I highly doubt anything extraordinary will come out of this interview. He will be expecting tough -- maybe even inflamatory -- questions. He is a pro at handling things like this.

    While I'm not a huge fan of George W., I give him loads of credit for one thing: Being able to handle confrontation calmly and with an air of dignity. This skill helped him win both televised debates with Al Gore during the elections. Not that he needed that much help -- Gore did a fine job of making himself look like a playground bully in both debates. :p

    I always found Bush to be an awful speaker for some reason. His speeches are quite well written, but he has never seemed to execute a decent delivery. If you compare him directly when he's speaking with people such as Blair or to recent leaders such as Clinton, both of whom have a general flair for speaking, Bush doesn't begin to compare in my opinion.

    So what did you think of our esteemed leader's interview?

    Personally, I thought Bush was a broken record.

    You were right Mac. His answers sounded like... faulty intelligence -- 9/11 -- threat to America -- 9/11 -- Saddam is an evil man -- 9/11 -- supported terrorists -- 9/11 -- "weapons programs" -- 9/11 -- deficit spending -- 9/11 -- I am a war president -- 9/11 -- vote for me -- 9/11 :bonk:

    "Let me take a step back, here, Tim." Man, he said that like 7 or 8 times. While I don't expect a straight answer from any politician, this guy takes the cake.

    What a secretive administration. I do believe it's time for a change.

    i also think he's an awful speaker, but somehow he seems to've turned that into an advantage. common man and all that crap.

    don't think he did himself any favors with this particular interview. but i suspect bushies probably think he did fine... *shrugs*

    certainly no surprises, tho he did appear to concede that kay's report will probably stand. but i was playing d2 while listening, maybe i misinterpreted that...

    There's a slight difference here. Monica was about a blow job. Iraq is about killing people. It's a little disingenuous to draw equivalency except in the most superficial terms.

    Well sure. If a linebacker gets into a fist fight with a midget, everyone feels sorry for the midget.
