Sorry, this is too funny to pass up, typical George Bush   :D

I love the way he signed it 'W'.

That story just sums up his childishness - any other world leader there would ignore urges and be polite and carry on with something more important. Kinda shows that he wasn't actually paying any attention to what was going on.

Let me see ... he is in a meeting filled with monarchs, presidents and prime ministers.  He really needs to go to the bathroom but he doesn't want to appear rude or insult one or more of these important people by just getting up and leaving the room.  Maybe he should have just leaned into his microphone and said, excuse me ladies and gentlemen, but I have to urinate.  Please hold this discussion until I return.  Or maybe he should have sat there and squirmed in his chair until the end or a break was called.  Maybe he should have just waited until his bladder burst.  Maybe he was just hoping Ms. Rice could come up with something to help him make a graceful exit to the men's room without an international incident being made of it.  

I know, I'm a Bush supporter, but to be fair, I do support all persons being allowed to pee in peace without being ridiculed for needing to do so.

I can't quite believe i'm about to defend Bush.

I understand that the President going anywhere is quite a production. Secret service needs to be able to check places for security, garantuee that no dangerous lunatics are lurking about and so on. Somehow I can't imagine that the president himself is directly in charge of making sure that happens.

So given that even in the UN, the US president going to the bathroom does require activity from far more people than just the US president himself, isn't it reasonable for him to ask about the feasability of arranging it, without insulting the person giving the speech, and not giving the head of his SS detachment a heart-attack?

I mean, amongst all the legitimate things to slam bush for, this seems very petty.

But you'd think he would know that he can't just walk out of his chair during a  huge meeting and go for a pee, or at least write a note when he should be paying attention to what is going on.

However, having said that, they might not have been in the middle of anything, so I suppose my comment was rather hasty, and for that I apologize.

I was once told that Prince Philip said "never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom." Sounds like nobody told Bush.  He should visit the men's rooms before important meetings.  Still, it happens.  Can't totally fight nature.  I'll give him a pass on this one.

He was probably not familiar with the process to ask for a break and was asking Ms. Rice what that was.

I guess if he was having poor health Bush's critics would go after that. After all all's fair. But when those who support the President reply in kind we get attacked for being unfair.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mr Bush has attended several functions at the UN before. It would seem that at this point he would know when/how to use the men's room. If you look around at the sheer numbers of vips attending, there must be some protocol as to how one handles a full bladder.  Besides, you would think that a man in his second term of office, who attends many functions, would know how to get to a bathroom without possibly offending someone. Nope, apparently not.

You'd think he'd just wait until a speaker finished and make his way out under cover of the applause, just as you do at a theater or conference.  And surely with that many VIP's in attendance, the loos are under permanent guard, not to mention the corridors.

On the other hand, there are bathroom breaks and bathroom breaks.  Maybe Condi keeps the blow in her compact.   :devil:

I'm sure the President does know the drill for going to the potty in such circumstances.  Maybe asking the Sec. of State to arrange it is the procedure.

Still, it is an unfavorable commentary on the media that the President needs to pee is news and the people who would ridicule him for needing to do so.  May they find themselves in a similar situation and may there be film on it at 11 -  "Denny's employee wets britches while pouring coffee at table 6 - 'Not break time' employee explains."

Do you have any proof that the President or the Secretary of State uses illegal drugs or is in personal possession of same?  Or is this just a smearing tactic through slander?

Proof?  No.

But we do know that Bush was--and since he's never gone into recovery, remains--cross addicted to alcohol and cocaine.  We also know that the likelihood of relapse is extremely high without rehabilitation, particularly for persons under stress. Bush continues to exhibit the outward signs of alcohol abuse in the spreading "gin bloom" on his face and the characteristic facial tic known as "coke jaw."  If you don't care to draw the obvious conclusions from those facts, don't.  Others will.

eloisel, have you any proof that he has given up either drug?  If not, you are speculating, with very little evidence to support your conclusion and the stats not in your favor.  Speculating, I might add, about the stability of the man with his finger on the nuclear button.  Remember Nixon's binges and Kissenger's instructions that all orders from the President had to be cleared through him? Perhaps you're comfortable with the American people exposed to the kind of risk a drunken addict in the White House poses.  I'm not.

Yeah and you came up with this just now because you got caught bad mouthing Bush and are now trying to defend it.

No one is going to come up with proof that the guy is not drinking since the President himself has said he's not. Now if someone actully came forward from his staff or cabinet or from a circle of his friends and said yeah he's off the wagon. Then I might see some merit.

But simply taking your word for it ain't good enough. As you have no access to the President or the above groups of people.

waterpanther, unless you have proof that he is using either drug, then you are slandering when you offer up your speculation to support your conclusion.
