George W. Bush Hates the Patriot Act [And Other Observations]

Today George W. Bush addressed the American Society of Newspaper Editors Convention and he made some rather telling remarks. He was revealing his inner-George, so to speak. To begin with, he apparently hates the Patriot Act:

Isn't that nice? Georgieboy thinks there has "to be a certain sense of privacy." I guess that explains why he wants the Patriot Act renewed.

Then there was this:

Okay, so let me get this straight; Georgieboy was given the opportunity to distance himself from a man who has threatened judges, abused his power and violated the ethics rules of the House of Representatives (see also here, here, here,...), and he chose to say "I'm looking forward to working with him." Well, there you have it folks. Bush is siding with DeLay. He's choosing corruption over ethics. So much for values and morals. We should be so proud.

And then, as if he hadn't sided with enough questionable people already, he made this statement:

You don't suppose he's talking about this John Cornyn, do you? I can't imagine that Georgieboy would want to align himself with someone who tried to justify violence against judges. That would seem rather hypocritical of someone who claims to always choose on the side of life.

So how did all of this happen? How did Georgieboy get so far off the reservation? Well, this wasn't one of his hand-picked, loyalty-oath-signing, ass-kissing, friendly audiences. These were real journalists and they ask real questions and when he's allowed to go without a net, things always get interesting. I have to think he's a little more honest when he doesn't have time to prepare an answer. However, honesty to George W. Bush means stepping on his dick in public. I expect to see him on a much shorter leash for a while to come now.
