Oops! - Bush Unaware Mikes Were Still On


The eavesdropping tables were turned on President Bush on Friday. The president apparently believed he was speaking privately when he talked about listening in without a warrant on domestic communications with suspected al-Qaida terrorists overseas. But reporters were the ones doing the listening in this time.

The incident happened at a House Republican retreat. After six minutes of public remarks by the president, reporters were ushered out. "I support the free press, let's just get them out of the room," Bush said, intending to speak behind closed doors with fellow Republicans and take lawmakers' questions.

I see. Of course! the 'free' in 'free press' means 'free to roam about anywhere out of earshot' of his royal Shrubness. Gotcha.

When reporters left, Bush spoke about the National Security Agency program that he authorized four years ago and which has drawn criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike.

However, the microphones stayed on for a few minutes. That allowed journalists back at the White House to eavesdrop on Bush's defense of the eavesdropping. His private statements were basically no different from what he's said in public.

Bush sadly currently represents the United States of America and wants to go ahead and drop the taps on suspects. I'm feeling a "he can do it, why can't we?" coming on. I'm sure the reporters were just following our leader's fine example of listening in on suspicious people. And papers? we don't need no stinkin' papers.

Come on. I ALWAYS want to know when my ex-girlfriend's talkin' mad shit about me. So when I listen in on her phone conversations, look up private files on her computer and search through all her snail mail, I make sure to do it in the most executive ways possible. Instant gratification is above the law. Duh.
