Uh, No. When Bush and Blair had the open mike incident, it was ALL OV£R the news like white on rice. Are you sure you weren’t under a rock? For one thing the BBC reporter (and you can probably find it on youtube) reported with GLEE that Bush said ‘....so I told them someone ought to tell the X to stop doing this sh*t...’ etc. etc.
It was during the 2006 Israeli war and Bush said (with his mouth full of food) something like, Syria needs to quit supplying arms to Hezbollah. And your right, it was plastered all over the news and analysts were all over saying how dumb Bush was.
