Strong opinions, weakly held

President Bush on the Olympics

Here’s the leader of the free world on attending the summer Olympics this year in Beijing:

I’m going to the Olympics. I view the Olympics as a sporting event.[…] There’s a lot of issues that I suspect people are gonna, you know, opine, about during the Olympics. I mean, you got the Dali Lama crowd. You’ve got global warming folks. You’ve got, you know, Darfur and… I am not gonna you know, go and use the Olympics as an opportunity to express my opinions to the Chinese people in a public way ’cause I do it all the time with the president.

He’s only got 11 more months left, folks, enjoy it while you can.


  1. I thought this quote was interesting:

    “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,” Bush said. “They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

  2. Wow, he knows that the genocide in Darfur is due to Chinese investment in oil in Sudan. I am mildly surprised.

  3. Duff- As much as I want to believe that quote, it appears not to be real. See here: http://www.thespoof.com/news/spoof.cfm?headline=s3i29768

  4. ummm…..the quote about never stopping about thinking about new ways to harm our country is in fact absolutely true.
