Cowardly Bush Terrified of Octogenerian Reporter

President Scared to Take a Question from Helen Thomas

According to DrudgeReport.com, at his impromptu “news” conference yesterday, President George W. Bush was scared shitless of columnist Helen Thomas, 85, and refused to call on her, even though she was seated in the front row:

President Bush today again avoided taking a question from White House doyenne Helen Thomas during his 45-minute press conference, even though he took questions from every reporter around her front-row, center seat.

“He’s a coward,” Thomas said afterward. “He’s supposed to be this macho guy. He’ll take on Osama bin Laden, but he won’t take me on.”

Thomas, who worked as the UPI White House reporter for 57 years and is now a columnist, raised her hand every time the president was concluding an answer to a reporter’s question, but he never called on her.

She had a few questions in mind, though. “I wanted to ask about Iraq: ‘You said you didn’t go in for oil or for Israel or for WMDs. so why did you go in?’ ”

    Just as well, how in the hell would he answer her questions anyway ? the ‘jackass in chief’ can summon only the most incoherent, fragmented, rambling and disconnected responses. And besides who pays attention to his BS. ?
    Nice try Helen.

    The coward is scared she will catch him in a lie, like she did his father. Senior Bush when running against Reagan called Reagans ecininic policies voodoo econimics. He denied it after gettung on Reagans ticket as vice President. Helen Mason called him on it and he denied saying it. She asked hin if he wanted her to bring out the tape to show what he said. He told her Helen everybody knows you dont mean what you say when running for office.

    “He’s supposed to be this macho guy. He’ll take on Osama bin Laden, but he won’t take me on.”

    Helen Thomas is wrong on that one. He won’t take on Osama bin Laden. (“Nah, I just don’t spend that much time on him.” – W)

    Helen Thonas is fucking class! She’s the only news person I even respect anymore, she follows up 10 times, all those other corporate newswhores should be lined up and shot without benefit of the clergy for their terrorism, fear, lies, and war crimes and apathy!

    Helen Thomas is all class and does Detroit proud!

    We live in very scary times and Bush only shows what a puppet man he is.

    In her honor, we may say that the first time he appeared in a press conference as president, she was the only one that hit him in the head. All the rest MSM jerks were there just celebrating him…

    They won’t call on her because she doesn’t roll over and let them talking-point there way out of everything. Good for her. Bush IS a coward.

    If just one third of the so-called WH reporters had half the balls that Helen has, we could get that beedie-eyed twit to curl up in the corner and cry for his mommy.
