The Texan Idiot, you bought his presidency, now buy his book.

So, there's President Stupid out whoring his little book.  And there's Matt Lauer asking him about waterboarding.  Lauer tried to get a simple idea into President Stupid's head.  If "it's legal" then how would you react if another country did this legal thing to an American somewhere? Incapable of understanding or addressing the blatant violation of international law and how this reckless tough guy posturing endangers not only American soldiers, but all Americans living, working, and traveling outside of the U.S. Bush responds he doesn't want to debate the policy.  He only wants you to listen to him.  He's not there to listen to you. Now shut up and buy the book. 

Well, Sherman let's power up the wayback machine to a press conference Bush had in the rose garden on September 15, 2006. 

Another NBC reporter, David Gregory, tried to get it into President Stupid's head that the reason why we shouldn't torture is so that our troops won't be tortured.  It's that simple.  But to idiot Bush he's a tough guy if he can torture or authorize torture.  And he's a tough guy if he doesn't bother with consequences, and doesn't think anything through.  In fact, he thinks the world would be better off if everyone tortured.  I'm not kidding.  Look at this from the transcript of this press conference:

President Bush's News Conference

QUESTION (by David Gregory of NBC News): Thank you very much.

Mr. President, critics of your proposed bill on interrogation rules say there's another important test. These critics include John McCain, who you've mentioned several times this morning. And that test is this: If a CIA officer, paramilitary or special operations soldier from the United States were captured in Iran or North Korea and they were roughed up and those governments said, Well, they were interrogated in accordance with our interpretation of the Geneva Conventions, and then they were put on trial and they were convicted based on secret evidence that they were not able to see, how would you react to that as commander in chief?  

BUSH: My reaction is, is that if the nations such as those you name adopted the standards within the Detainee Detention Act, the world would be better. That's my reaction.

You don't believe me.  You don't believe the idiot actually said that, do you?  How about if you saw the video?

He renames "torture" into "program," as Frank Luntz taught him to do.  So, "torture," was replaced with "enhanced interrogation techniques," and Bush was hell bent on keeping it.  To him the ban on torture in the Geneva Conventions was vague language.  All language is vague to an illiterate idiot.
