The Deaf Claque

Because they’re worth clapping for…probably…

Bush wants to stay in power?

I don’t really know what to think of this. I said jokingly in casual conversation sometime last year that I wouldn’t be surprised if Bush tried to extend his presidency; he’s certainly done more ludicrous things in his time. I don’t even know…

Reporter: Mr. President, following up on Vladimir Putin for a moment, he said recently that next year, when he has to step down according to the constitution, as the president, he may become prime minister; in effect keeping power and dashing any hopes for a genuine democratic transition there …

Bush: I’ve been planning that myself.

Considering his…way with words…he may have been attempting to make a joke. However I don’t know if it’s appropriate for a president to say that in a serious context, even if it is intended as a joke.
