The media did blow the Jenna/Barbara Bush drinking out of proportion, but then again those girls should have known that the spotlight was going to be on them and they should've toned it down. Just my take, I drank too when I shouldn't have been, but I didn't make a show of it. I didn't want to face the legal consequences of my actions so I never made a public display of my drinking. Nor did I want to put my parents through any grief should I have been caught in a legal battle caused by my drinking. They had enough to worry about, they didn't need me mucking things up. At least now Jenna and her sister are taking part in their school activities which include working to help aid the 9/11 victims' families. They still might party and if they got in trouble we'd hear about it, but I think they've toned it down. I think the tragedies of the terrorist actions as well as what their parents must be going through, has opened their eyes and put them in line.

Not to bring up any dirt from presidencies past, but about the media thing again. Chelsea Clinton got a lot of harrassment when Clinton took office. (this is not intended to start a democrat vs. republican debate - just making an observation) It was terrible what they media did to that girl, she was the butt of every late night talk show joke, the the butt of every editorial. Her offence? Being an awkward 'ugly duckling' 12 year old with braces.

Well, I'll give Dubya some credit. At least he didn't vomit all over the Japanese prime minister like his daddy did.

Joking aside, he's human. It's bound to happen, although I'm sure, like anything involving this presidency, the real story isn't the official story.

And the doctor analyzing the situation is quite hilarious when you think about it. I guess the war in Afghanistan is old news to them.


"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

begin the war against barvaria, germanian terrorists planted that pretzel i tell you!

geeeze... the guy is probably one of the most down to earth leader of any country right now, cut the guy some slack, everybody chokes on food now and again, just because he runs the US doesnt mean hes perfect. The media better just leave him be. Im reminded of the whole Jenna bush drinking incidents... Do they have any clue just how much under-age drinking goes on in this continent? I mean come on... People have to look in the mirror before they start ridiculing or even poking fun at ol dubya.

I don't believe the story. I think it's fabricated and that Laura bush slapped him silly and that's how he got the bruise.
