    Book: Bush dissed Obama, Palin (and Hillary's behind) | KansasCity.com Prime Buzz

    from newsmax.com

    President George W. Bush's former speechwriter Matt Latimer reveals that Bush considered Barack Obama unfit for the White House and predicted that vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would be a disaster for the GOP.

    "After one of Obama's blistering speeches against the administration, the president had a very human reaction: He was ticked off," Latimer writes in his forthcoming book, "Speech-Less: Tales of a White House Survivor," which has been excerpted in the October issue of GQ.

    "He came in one day to rehearse a speech, fuming. 'This is a dangerous world,' he said for no apparent reason, 'and this cat isn't remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you.'"

    During the presidential campaign Bush believed that Hillary Clinton would win the Democratic nomination, but he didn't think much of her as chief executive either, according to Latimer, who served as a speechwriter for the last 22 months of Bush's term.

    He writes: "'Wait till her fat keister is sitting at this desk,' [Bush] once said (except he didn't say 'keister')."

    Latimer recalls a comment Bush made after Sarah Palin was selected as John McCain's GOP running mate. "Bush said: 'I’m trying to remember if I’ve met her before. I’m sure I must have.' His eyes twinkled. Then he asked: 'What is she, the governor of Guam?'"

    When conservatives responded enthusiastically to Palin's selection, Bush advised people to wait "until the bloom is off the rose," Latimer reveals.

    "This woman is being put into a position she is not even remotely prepared for. She hasn't spent one day on the national level. Neither has her family. Let's wait and see how she looks five days out."

    I didn't see cons demonstrating against Bush. After he's gone, they all say how bad he was.

    I don't speak for 'Cons.'

    BTW, since you seem to be clueless on the subject, Chimp left office with an approval rating of around 21% which means most people didn't support him.

    The only reason conservatives voted for McCain was Palin. It would have been a bigger wipeout if she wasn't there.
    But on the other hand Palin is a disaster for the GOP because she points out how they've lost their conservatism.
    And Sarah is still on the job by putting a stick in Obamas' eye about Health Care.

    Exactly correct. Obama has no clue.
    She does have a fat ass! Why do you think she wears pant suits all the time? And look at her performance as Secretary of State so far, name one accomplishment? She's an embarrassment.

    i am no fashion expert, but i thought the narrative is she wears pant suits to hide her cankles.

    dresses and skirts are good for fat-assed women, but the legs have to be presentable.

    and why does this guy replace the real word with keister, is america so free, that not even in a book the word ass can be used, or what word did bush use that warrants substitution.

    land of the sexually repressed.
