no grasp of reality

with the lies to the union address looming on the 23rd, the cheney administration seems to have absolutely no grip on reality whatsoever. from the unflappable rice- who was reminded why she has to have holidays with the bushes by barbara boxer- to the figurehead of the united states of america. yes, bush had his interview with cbs's 60 minutes - and here is a bit of what he had to say:

'President George W. Bush says he is flexible and open-minded, rather than stubborn, but with a "thick hide" to absorb criticism."

In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" conducted last week, Bush also denied his spirits had suffered because the Iraq warhad not gone as well as hoped.

"Quite the contrary," he said, according to a transcript of the interview airing on Sunday. "My spirits are strong.

"I really am not the kind of guy that sits here and says, 'Oh, gosh, I'm worried about my legacy.' I'm more worried about making the right decisions to protect the United States of America," he said.

"I understand criticism. But I've got a pretty thick hide."

uh huh. the complete transcript is-- here.

I watched it. No need to read it. Besides, I'm out of barf bags.


Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

oh- good grief no!!!! :) i didn't watch it- my mom was going to but missed it. i looked the transcript up for her- and cheney's interview on faux news- and printed the transcripts. in fact, i didn't even read the transcript- just the little blurb in the news. see- that's why they never used to let him speak much in public.

I think it's more like he is high on spirits or something. How in the world can anyone be that disconnected from reality? I am astonished!
