George W. Bush Insists That the Worst Moment of His Eight-Year Presidency Was When He Heard That on TV…

Nov 4, 2010  •  Post A Comment

George W. Bush insists that the worst moment of his eight-year presidency was when he heard that on TV, during a telethon to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, rapper Kanye West had  said, ""George Bush doesn’t care about black people," reports our friend Lisa de Moraes in the Washington Post. 

According to the article, Bush makes the claim in his forthcoming memoir, and was asked about it in an interview with Matt Lauer, which NBC will show in primetime on Monday, Nov. 8, 2010.

Says the story: " ‘You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your presidency?’ Lauer asked Bush in [the] taped interview…[Bush replied] ‘Yes. My record was strong, I felt, when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And — it was a disgusting moment.’ "

When Lauer asks if Bush was actually watching the telecast when West said the remark, Bush said no.

Then Lauer says the former president might get some "heat" for saying that the West remark was the worst moment of his presidency.  Bush snapped back "Don’t care," de Moraes writes.

  1. What an idiot. He hasn’t changed a bit over the past two years.

  2. You’re right, but Kayne has been acting like an idiot a lot longer than two years.

  3. Why is he an idiot? I don’t get that at all. He’s strong and determined and convinced he’s right. Just what you want in a chief executive. You may disagree with his policies, but calling him an idiot is idiocy itself.
    Why the hell would anyone listen to this West guy? Who the hell is he?

  4. I thought everyone was talking about Kayne being the idiot.

  5. Being strong, determined and convinced you’re right does not preclude one from being an idiot. An idiot is an utterly foolish or senseless person, and “I” believe that he was those things – along with being strong, determined and convinced he’s right. Synonyms – fool, half-wit, imbecile, dolt, dunce, numskull… just read a couple of the bush-ims.

  6. I especially liked the great Bush quote: “Pollution isn’t the problem, it’s the impurities in the air and the water that’s the problem.” Jimmy Carter was right in saying it was the worst US presidency, not because he was stupid, which is accurate, but because of the multi-trillion dollar invasions with the vast military build-up, the destruction of America’s image around the world, the financial devastation on the US middle and lower class caused by the largest transfer of wealth in US history into the top 1%. The killing of countless tens of thousands in Iraq because of manipulated “intelligence” to serve his “base” of military and oil industrialists. I’m sorry Bush will make money on his memoirs – – he doesn’t deserve another spin in the public limelight.

  7. IMO, G.W.B. was the worst President in U.S. history. It may take decades to recover from the mess he and his cronies created. Furthermore, the number one item on my “bucket list” is to piss on his grave someday.
