And one other comment, it's clear why this was only the fourth such press conference from this president... it was embarassing.

I also distinctly heard the president request to have all future "prepared-in-advance questions, given to him as well as to the reporter asking the staged questions.
In Bush's behalf, I think he was trying to make a quip, ie a joke of the last question asked. It was staged. He noticed it and remarked upon it. Don't you wish the press wouldn't be as contemptous as they appear?
I'm no fan of Bush, but I do want to see him treated fairly. I also wanted that during the last president's term and never saw it happen.
Yes, he did refer to the Islam as a false ideology. Any government grounded in theocracy is doomed to be a false ideology in my book. Let's call a spade a spade. It appears the Iraqis wouldn't know a democratic movement if it slapped him in their collective faces.

No, that came earlier in the Q&A portion. The more I look back at this event... the more embarassed I become. Blame Florida.
