Just breaking - A conversation between Bush and Blair when they thought no one was listening. Bush is critical of Kofi and involvement of UN. He mentions Syria and Rice. He also utters a swear word while chewing a piece of bread(?) while Blair leans in and nods a lot and mentions international intervention. Watch the video on BBC. I'm looking for the transcript and a full video. CNN is currently playing it.




"See, the irony is, what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hizbollah to stop doing this s**t," Mr Bush told Mr Blair in a discussion before a G8 summit lunch.

I wonder if Kofi's ears were burning? I can barely make out what Bush is saying as the hunk of bread is impeding conversation.

Hmmmm

You think this was staged?





n the conversation, Bush also says he plans to send U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the Middle East.

During a photo opportunity where there was an open microphone, Bush was heard expressing his frustration to British Prime Minister Tony Blair using an expletive.

Bush and Blair were aware that the event was a photo opportunity and that the media was present. Blair later turned off the microphone.

The more I think about it, the more I think they staged this. They knew people were listening. If you catch the video on CNN you can see Bush almost look toward the camera and grin when is talking about Syria.

Perhaps it was staged, but Bush has accidently spoken into microphones he thought were turned off before. Who knows? It maybe a good thing though that this happened either way, a certain warning to Syria with plausable deniability that it was meant to be done officially.

Text of conversation




Bush: What about Kofi Annan? I don't like the sequence of it. His attitude is basically cease-fire and everything else happens.

Blair: I think the thing that is really difficult is you can't stop this unless you get this international presence agreed.

Bush: She's going. I think Condi's (U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) going to go pretty soon.

Blair: Well that's all that matters. If you see, it will take some time to get out of there. But at least it gives people....

Bush: It's a process I agree. I told her your offer too.

Blair: Well it's only or if she's gonna or if she needs the ground prepared as it were. See, if she goes out she's got to succeed as it were, where as I can just go out and talk.

Bush: See the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this # and it's over.

Blair: Cause I think this is all part of the same thing. What does he think? He thinks if Lebanon turns out fine, if he gets a solution in Israel and Palestine, Iraq goes in the right way, he's done it. That's what this whole things about. It's the same with Iran.

Bush: I feel like telling Kofi to get on the phone with Assad and make something happen. We're not blaming Israel and we're not blaming the Lebanese government.

I personally think this private conversation is a unique opportunity to see what the two leaders really think off the table and outside of a press conference.

Nothing like adding fire to something already hot on that region.

I don't think it was staged. He wouldn't use that language. He was candid, being himself. Talking while food flung out of his potty mouth.

It's also an opportunity for those who revere President Bush and his claims of Christianity to see that he has more of a potty mouth than I do. The ease at which that language rolled effortlessly out of his mouth indicates to me that he uses this kind of language all the time. I've never heard a Christian talk like that.

He's a fraud.

That's the lesser of his crimes, but yes, I agree.

He's also an idiot, although that could be classified as a crime, because no world leader should be an idiot, and vice versa.

He said it just like he was sitting under a shade tree in the Midwest or Ozarks at a family reunion.

This is brilliant and it shows that Bush believes what he says in public,get Syria to stop supporting Hesbola and the cnflict will cease ...for now. Well done MR. Bush


This shows he's not as stupid as people say but actually a very shrewd man who likes to swear.

How absolutely immature to ignore the substance of the conversation and focus exclusively on the use of a minor swear word.

That's it, break out the party hats, Bush said the S-Word. I guess none of you were born when LBJ was president.

Maybe pay attention to the substance of what was said and see why it makes sense.

Focusing on this mild utterance is akin to being on a Jury for a 6 month case and when it comes time to deliberate you complain about the decor of the courtroom.

Can anyone point me to the rules where it says you can't be a christian and say SH*T?

Well, at least the mic didn't catch Bush and Blair chatting about "all that junk" in Lyudmila Putin's "trunk".
I bet they talk about that stuff more than you would believe.

I agree partly with Bush. Syria should stop supporting Hezbollah. That's not easy though. But Israel has to stop as well for the shh to stop.

I don't really care if Bush would have dropped an F-bomb into the microphone. I actually agree with him for one of the first times on one of his opinons. I hope he's right about Syria.

Of course the media and some people here are making a big ordeal about him swearing, so what? I swear like a trucker sometimes when I get fired up. It's good that he's showing some emotion instead of being the wooden boy like he has been his whole presidency. Maybe if he stops letting his strings get pulled he'll finally be the leader that the US needs right now.
