Donald Rumsfeld was asked by Jim Lehrer on the News Hour on PBS just now if his low poll numbers bothered him. This was after one tiresome question after another about how the polls prove Americans hate Bush, the war in Iraq and everything else Republican-related. Rumsfeld came up with the best, in-your-face reply: "If you look where the news media is, it's down very low in the polls. If you want to get into public opinion polls, people in that business are right down near the bottom. You know that. Does it bother you?" Lehrer looked embarrassed and could only respond "I ask the questions here."
That's why I love Rumsfeld! He's not afraid to stuff it right back in the hideous faces of the media pukes unlike the rest of the administration that just plays so prissy and fearful with the leftist media.
Rumsfeld should be president...too many skeletons?
Modern day Churchill.
This is probably why Bill Kristol doesn't like Rummy. Kristol was on Fox this morning spewing his "time for Rummy to resign" mantra.
And .. after hearing what Kristol had to say .. I'm wondering if it was Kristol who started the rumor .. just so Kristol could comment on it.
Slap 'em some more Rummy!
I know one thing.....if the President cares about his "numbers" at all....
He won't even consider replacing Rummy....especially with Lieberman~!
THAT is it!!! Kristol has to be the "White House" source that says that Bush is mad at Rummy and wants to replace him...
I just CANNOT even imagine that scenario...but, I can believe that Kristol would make it up!
All of this transperant crap about Lieberman being the next Secretary of State!
We've got a real man as SOD.
Thank you!! Go Rummie! What a B***slap!
I think we need to send a message to the White House that Rummy leaving is NOT an option....
Oh, he wasn't elected? Never mind...
very, very nice Gordo. That's one of the best photo sequences I've seen. Lets put Rummy and Cheney in charge...of everything.
Jim Lehrer is red in the face
For causing himself this disgrace
Acting just like a DUmmy
He badgered Don Rummy
But wound up in very last place.
More like Rumsfeld wizzed in Jim's Cherrios.
I saw it...on PBS local channel 9 in SF Bay Area.
Rumsfeld did not back off from that communist bast**d Lehrer.
Lehrer means teacher in German. I do not know if it is Jewish. I suspect so.
In this case, the teacher was taught a lesson, both in civics and in manners.
My all-time favorite show on TV - the Rummy Press Conference. 72 years old and he not only bests them everytime, he hangs them up and changes their diapers for them.
First President Bush, then Cheney, now Rummy! Hand them their arses, guys :-D
