Why Europeans Cannot Respect Our President

The Irish TV network has an exclusive interview with Bush at the White House, about 11 minutes long. It's embarrassing example of why George Bush is such a miserable failure as a leader. He constantly cuts off the interviewer and condescends to her, especially when she calls him on his outright lies about WMDs. He doesn't answer any of her questions, instead going off on several weird rambles on unrelated topics such as AIDS and surgical charity to Iraqis. He seems dangerously out of touch with the impression he is making.

His dismissive sneer at France was astonishing, brushing aside our ally's opionion as worthless and saying that French credibility is suspect because they disagreed.

No wonder the Irish think he's a dolt. He was a terrible interview, and did nothing to put recent US actions in a better light. Hell, he was still peddling the "Abu Graib was a few rotten apples" line, plus some nonsense aobut "People [who disagree with him] don't understand what America is about." He can't seem to understand that people genuinely disagree with his policies; it's as if he has a messiah complex, or a complete lack of empathy for alternate points of view.

Yes, I gather he's even more unpopular in Ireland than he is in Seattle. If that's possible.

The Irish Interview
Saw this on the US media last night - its being spun as "How dare those Irish be rude to our President".

(In other news, Cheney says this about his cursing - "They deserve it for being so devisive")
