Our president.  So full of class and tact.

http://www.ustourofduty.org/pages/videoDoloresPrez_high.html

Quote
Dolores tried to give Bush a sense of what type of person Erik had been. She described her son as a "comedian" whose favorite saying was, "Life is good." The president replied, "How do you know his life would have been good?"

Dolores was shocked by Bush's eagerness to question the value of her son's life. She told the president, "Nobody wants to die."

Before he concluded their meeting, Bush proclaimed to Dolores, "We won't know in our lifetime whether or not Iraq was a success."
  I wonder if she would have gone to jail for punching the president in the mouth for that comment?

I hold Bush in low esteem.  But I am skeptical of such one-on-one accounts.

I can't find any credible site that backs this up.   eek

If there was any truth to it, it would be all over the press.

Wouldn't it be ironic if, in order to condemn Bush, we suspended the very critical thinking faculties that we routinely (and perhaps justifiably) accuse him of lacking?

Certainly FauxNews wouldn't report the matter.

I basically view Bush as one of the lowest forms of life on this planet.  The only thing left for him to do that would "Surprise" me, would be if he pushed "The Button" and ended the earth.  At this point, I think he has done almost as bad as that.

I wouldn't put it past Bush to have said that to the poor woman. It fits the pattern of bonehead things that have been coming out of his mouth over the years he's been the president. This is the same guy who defined 'sovereign state' as "a state that is...sovereign". There is a video floating around that has him saying this.

I've got a video from when Mrs. MLK was giving him a painting of MLK.  His remark?  "Its a nice picture.  I can't wait to hang it."  Yea....well thought out.

Bush is a madman, plain and simple. If you don't agree with his warmongering and nation building policies, you're supporting the terrorists!
My biggest regret about Bush? That I voted for him!

Actually, if you watch the video Dolores states, "He said something to the effect of..."  Now, I don't know about you folks, but direct quotes, inflection and context can make or break a statement like that.  None of which seem to be accurately represented here.  Do I put it past the President to be an insensitive prick who's stuck on rhetoric?  No.  Do I put it past a grieving mother who is against the war in Iraq to misinterpret something said by the President?  No.

Without more data, preferably a surveillance tape with audio of how this conversation went down, this conversation is a non-story.

As much as I despise Bush and would love to see him impeached, tossed in prison, and kept away from society for the good of us all...

Crayola's right.  Unless we have some proof, we can't say whether or not this is true.

Who cares?  Bush is an ignorant ass who doesn't care about anything but himself and his party.  I most certainly wouldn't put this past him after everything else he's done.  Does it make him any more or less of an ignorant prick?  Nope, not at all.  Rolly-eye all you want, but it doesn't do anything besides further cement your complete and utter denial in admitting that you voted a retarded, warmongering, elitist, ass-clown into one of the most powerful positions in the modern world.  Go you!
