One more thing, and then I’ll get off the topic of whether Bush is drinking or not. If he doesn’t want people to think he’s hitting the bottle again, then he shouldn’t go around saying stuff like this.
Bush said: “You know, something we — I’ve been thinking a lot about how America has responded, and it’s clear to me that Americans value human life, and value every person as important. And that stands in stark contrast, by the way, to the terrorists we have to deal with. You see, we look at the destruction caused by Katrina, and our hearts break. They’re the kind of people who look at Katrina and wish they had caused it. We’re in a war against these people. It’s a war on terror. These are evil men who target the suffering. They killed 3,000 people on September the 11th, 2001. And they’ve continued to kill. See, sometimes we forget about the evil deeds of these people.”
The fuck he said?
From now on, ask him about Katrina, and he’ll say “Do you realize we were attacked on September 11th?” And why not? After all, it worked with Iraq. Didn’t it? Seriously though, if his audience weren’t hand-picked he’d be getting laughs in response to lines like this.
