Idiot Son appeared on the News Hour with Jim Leher on Friday, and was pressed about the breaking news of that day: the fact that Bush authorized the National Security Agency to illegally spy on Americans.
Bush refused to answer the questions about domestic spying (which, of course, he subsequently admitted to in his weekly radio address yesterday, and convenienty, with no reporters to question him about it).
But the most intriguing part of the interview, was when Bush told Leher (in reference to the spy scandal): "It's not the main story of the day."
So let me see if I can get this straight.
One of the first things that Bush made sure his aides were told in January 2001, was that he is not an avid reader, so don't give him any lengthy written briefings.
And we learned that during the height of Katrina, White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett realized Idiot Son did not understand the magnitude or seriousness of what was happening on the ground in NOLA, and so he made him a DVD of the newcasts from NOLA.
And Bush had the nerve to lecuture Leher on what he thinks the "main story of the day" should be?
JIM LEHRER: I mean, it's on the front page of the New York Times, the Washington Post, every newspaper in America today, and it's going--it's the main story of the day. So--
PRESIDENT BUSH: It's not the main story of the day.
