Bush's Extempore Remarks Re London Bombings

It's interesting that when Prez Bush talked off-the-cuff about the London Bombings he sounded like the boob he is. But already it's hard to find a transcript of his remarks, even on-line. And it's only seven hours since the bombings took place. But, thanks to the Associated Press, this is what he said: “I spent some time recently with the Prime Minister, Tony Blair; had the opportunity to express our heartfelt condolences to the people of London, people who lost lives. I appreciate Prime Minister Blair's steadfast determination and restraint. He's on his way now to London here from the G-8 to speak directly to the people of London, to carry a message of solidarity with him. This morning I've been in contact with our homeland security folks and I instructed them to be in touch with local and state officials about the facts of what took place here and in London and to be extra vigilant as our folks start heading to work. The contrast between what we've seen on the TV screens here, what's taken place in London, what's taken place here is incredibly vivid to me. On the one hand, we got people here who are working to alleviate poverty and to help rid the world of the pandemic of AIDS and that are working on ways to have a clean environment. And on the other hand, you've got people killing innocent people. And the contrast couldn't be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty, and those who kill, those who've got such evil in their heart that they will take the lives of innocent folks. The war on terror goes on. I was most impressed by the resolve of all the leaders in the room. Their resolve is as strong as my resolve. And that is, we will not yield to these people, will not yield to the terrorists. We will find them. We will bring them to justice. And at the same time we will spread an ideology of hope and compassion that will overwhelm their ideology of hate. Thank you very much.” And this is what UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said: "We condemn utterly these barbaric attacks. We send our profound condolences to the victims and their families. "All of our countries have suffered from the impact of terrorism. Those responsible have no respect for human life. We are united in our resolve to confront and defeat this terrorism that is not an attack on one nation, but all nations and on civilized people everywhere. "We will not allow violence to change our societies or our values, nor will we allow it to stop the work of this summit. We will continue our deliberations in the interest of a better world. "Here at the summit, the world's leaders are striving to combat world poverty and save and improve human life. "The perpetrators of today's attacks are intent on destroying human life. The terrorists will not succeed. Today's bombings will not weaken in any way our resolve to uphold the most deeply held principles of our societies and to defeat those who impose their fanaticism and extremism on all of us. "We shall prevail and they shall not." The print media is choosing to re-write Bush's moronic statement about telling Homeland Security to be “extra vigilant”. This is how NPR is now reporting Bush's off-the-cuff remarks: “President Bush warned Americans on Thursday to be "extra vigilant" as they head to work after the deadly explosions in London. Bush said he spoke with federal homeland security officials back in Washington. 'I instructed them to be in touch with local and state officials about the facts of what took place here in London,' Bush told reporters from a summit of world leaders here. Bush urged caution 'as our folks start heading to work.' 'The war on terrorism goes on,' he said. 'We will not yield to these people.' The president offered the 'heartfelt condolences' of the American people to the victims and their families in London. British Prime Minister Tony Blair left the summit being held at a posh resort here to rush to London. Bush said Blair would 'carry a message of solidarity with him' to London.” NPR's version certainly sounds better than what George W. Bush actually said. Because GEORGE W. BUSH IS AN EMBARRASSMENT AND AN IDIOT!!! How many times do we have to see Bush flounder and be at a loss to know what to do during times of catastrophe? How many times do we have to hear him back-and-fill and play for time waiting for instructions during moments of dire emergencies? How many times do we have to see our President shown up by other world leaders on every criterion (diplomacy, mental acuity, intelligence, extemporaneous remarks, to name a few) before the entire country screams?: IMPEACH THIS KNOW-NOTHING MENTAL DEFECTIVE DIM-WITTED NARCISSIST SOCIOPATH BEFORE HE DESTROYS OUR COUNTRY!!!!
