Bush has a problem with his English conversation – that everyone knows.. here is a new nail in his bed!! 🙂 By the way, anyone of us would have had similar reactions!
A microphone picked up an unaware President Bush saying on Monday Syria should press Hezbollah to “stop doing this shit” and that his secretary of state may go to the Middle East soon.
Bush was talking privately to British Prime Minister Tony Blair during a lunch at the Group of Eight summit in St Petersburg about an upsurge of violence in the Middle East, not realizing a microphone was recording what he said.
“I think Condi (Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) is going to go pretty soon,” Bush said.
Blair replied: “Right, that’s all that matters, it will take some time to get that together.”
The two leaders also referred to an offer by Blair to help. Blair said Rice has “got to succeed” if she goes out to the region.
Bush replied: “What they need to do it to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit.” Shortly afterwards Blair noticed the microphone and hastily switched it off, but not before the recording had reached news media.
