I don't consider it "X-rated language" as it was used in that interview. There are times and places where this word would not be appropriate but in this case...not such a big deal IMO

Heh....

To compare, here in Australia the Labour party (Aussie Left/Democrat equivalent) just voted a guy called Mark Latham in as the guy to run against the Prime Minister, John Howard (as conservative as GW - more so in some areas) in our elections next year.

He is best known for calling Howard an "Arselicker" (in reference to his relationship with Bush) in an interview with a respected national news magazine.

Calling Howards government a "Conga line of suckholes" (as in, his Ministers suck up to him, he sucks up to Bush) and that was IN PARLIAMENT.

Calling our Federal Treasurer a "Big c*nt" IN PARLIAMENT.

Calling Bush "The most dangerous and incompetant US President in living memory" IN PARLIAMENT.



And in this country he's very, very popular and Howards team are a bit worried.

What a fking huge surprise. Now they're even. I recall GWB getting called on the carpet after referring to a journalist (I think, wasn't it?) as a "major league hole". The guy responded "I'm disappointed with the Governor's language".
Twenty-first century politics. I don't care. It doesn't change my vote.

Exactly.

I'd say the first of the two, personally. At least this word is real, unlike "misunderestimated".

Anitram and Blacksword made excellent points, too.

No American president has ever fucked up the country this much before.

I can't believe, when there are such serious events happening in the world, that people waste time getting their pants in a twist because a prospective presidential candidate swore in an interview.

Is it really *that* big a deal to you guys?

Seriously, saying Bush f***ed up is a lot nice than some of the supreme nastiness I've seen in every election ad that I've seen on the NY stations we get here in Ontario. US politics is revolting in it's mud slinging, and you're getting annoyed with one word? Right...

I bet Teresa is the real potty mouth in that family..the real question is, did his hair move when he said it?



Somehow I think GW uses the F word a lot in private

I am not saying he does not. As a history major and as someone who is 35 years old who has followed Presidential politics from the time he was 8 years old, and as someone who LOVES to follow the campain process, for a candidate to answer a direct question this is unheard of. That is all.

I am actually maybe for the first time in over a year of participating here sorry I brought something up in this room. Happy...LOL

My goodness....I acknowledged that presidents in private have sworn before. Bush got caught off camera by accident ...not in direct questioning. THIS was a direct question. It is not something that is common in our politics.

I'm not saying I don't think it's a bit distasteful that he would use that word

I think swearing should be done in private, but that's just my taste
