Catherine this question was asked about a year and half ago so watching today's news wouldn't be very enlightening to you on this matter. However, with all the old blogs resurfacing with new dates perhaps you didn't actually say what you did on the date that we are lead to believe you said it.

catherine ... It was apparently back in 2006!

I have not watched the news today. So, what did he say?
---catherine on 1/22/08

And I supposed there's no one on this list who has never used improper language at one time or other.

Get over it.

Nobody has ever claimed that Bush glowed in the dark.
---Jack on 1/22/08

Steve,I won't comment much, however the clips on Craig are a hoot! Craig cracks me up, I saw him live in Las Vegas a few months ago, so funny!
However wrong it may seem, perhaps Bush and Blair are close enough to 'act out' a bit towards each other. Cheeky monkeys!
---NVBarbara on 2/28/07

Who recalls when he also held up his middle finger in front of a running camera? He thought it was funny, I failed to see the humor.
I don't have a problem with a president cussing, but I do raise an eyebrow at a Christian, any Christian, who does such things so easily. It lets me know that this is a part of your every day communication. When you are in a position of authority, especially, and claiming to be born-again, I believe you should carry yourself accordingly. President Bush doesn't.
---AlwaysOn on 9/8/06

Enought already. President Bush is a MAN under tremendous pressure..more than any leader in our country has seen in a long while. He's attacked by Democrates and others who are poor loosers just for the heck of it to make trouble and reporters hound his every breath and then only report "bits and pieces" of distorted truth.
Thank GOD he's strong enough to handle the poor excuse of people he deals with daily.
---Terry on 8/10/06

Alan, I heard what they broadcast on TV. Again, we only know that part of the conversation, not the hours and days before, nor the hours and days after. I think the 2 men speak frankly to one another - even strongly, just as men sometimes do. I certainly don't think of either as master of the other.
---daphn8897 on 7/25/06

Daphne ... did you hear or read the conversation.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/25/06

Gee willikers! Bush is not Blair's master. The two men were talking. I know I've had conversations with friends and said, "Why don't you take care of this and that..." Just because I said it doesn't mean they'll do it - it was 1 or 2 comments out of an ongoing discussion. Crimminies!
---daphn8897 on 7/25/06

I'm afraid if I was president ... well, I'd more than likely not behave properly sometimes. I'll pass on his plate.
---Nellah on 7/22/06

Yes Bush & Blair had a private converstion which the mikes picked up.
The cussing was only the least of it. Did you read what was said in that conversation? I am afraid when I realise that the fate of the world lies in Bush's hands, and that Blair just goes along with his master.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/22/06

Pres. BUsh is always cussing. If that was his biggest issue we'd be fine...
I just looked at a news release where him and Tony Blair were having a conversation and didn't know the mic's were on. Pres Bush cussed there too!
---sue on 7/21/06

We are born again AKA saved by the grace of God. We receive salvation through faith, believing that Christ came in the flesh and died to pay for our sins. He rose from the dead. 1Peter 1:16-23, 2:24
God judges every person according to his work. We don't lose our salvation for sinning, but we lose rewards for the sins of omission and commission. 1Cor. 3:11-15
I don't think the slang for manure is cussing. I believe slang words for God and Jesus are more offensive to God like je, golly, or gosh.
---Creamcup on 7/20/06

Bush still has trouble saying 'nuclear.' Has anyone seen the slowed down version of some of his speeches on the Craig Ferguson Late Late Show? Histerical!

Sometime back I posted a blog on Ed tolerance and what the little kids are being forced to learn about porn in the name of Ed. How we should be contacting our senators and congressman on this. I only got 1 reply. Now everyone is concerned about what Bush said? Are we from the planet of the apes?
---wayne on 7/19/06

JohnT: I appreciate the humor, and I was just being silly myself, as Jay Leno had a clip of Bush mispronouncing the Russian Presdient's name on his show last night.

With all the stuff that is happening on the news these days, it is nice to just fool around sometimes.
---Madison1101 on 7/19/06

Madison, You say Bush cannot be trusted... You are correct in that ultimately we are to trust in God, not in any man. I trust God in and through Pres. G.W.Bush - not him standing on his own merits. Has he made mistakes? yes. Will he make more? probably. I know of no Pres. who hasn't. So, let's stop throwing stones and start praying.
---daphn8897 on 7/19/06


I see you are concerned about the deep issues!

"He mispronounced the President of Russia's last name"

Relax, I am trying to kid you after you got hammered by Rebecca on another blog, OK?

Robert, By the way, King David was also a murderer - had a man killed to cover up his affair.
---daphn8897 on 7/19/06

Robert, "No Christian is a philanderer and no philanderer is a Christian." Well, I guess we should throw out most of the Psalms then, as well as any scripture that referred to David as "a man after God's own heart." God saves flawed people - and, they are not immediately "fixed" upon salvation... otherwise scripture wouldn't say, "if we sin... we have an advocate."
---daphn8897 on 7/19/06

I believe Pres. Clinton is a Christian - something the Lord showed me years ago, a brilliant man, also flawed.

Pardon? No Christian is a philanderer and no philanderer is a Christian. The Clintons are buying Christians with their recent behovior that they might get another term in the White House. Hilary Clinton has already had her term, and should be disqualified from a third.

There is little Chistianity in the entire democratic camp. (And I am neutral, affiliated to neither)
---Robert on 7/19/06

Madison, I don't think LBJ shot from the hip so much as he was vulgar and rude. He loved the authority he had and abused it in vulgar ways. He was hated by his staff, no wonder. He was a good follow up to the lying, adultrous Kennedy.
---Steve on 7/19/06

Shop For Church Furniture

JohnT: I was referring to LBJ about trusting him. He was frank, blunt to a fault and didn't care what the press corps, or anyone thought.

Bush can't be trusted. He is a "born again Christian" when he runs for office, and then someone else at other times. Plus, he fumbles his words pitifully.

He mispronounced the President of Russia's last name.
---Madison1101 on 7/18/06

Alan of UK--Some Christians here would consider the word "crap"...well, not so acceptable. If I remember correctly, the blogger who used it got criticized because of it (though it was not used as an expletive).It, too, is not used "in the best circles".
---Donna2277 on 7/18/06

President Bush should not have sworn - it is wrong especially for a leader. I believe leaders will have a greater accountability to God. However, we are not called to judge him, but to pray for him. He has an unenviable job.
---Helen_5378 on 7/18/06

All US presidents have been guilty of cussing. I think the prize should go to Richard Nixon as many of his cuss words are on tape found today in the Nixon library. Even old Billy Graham commented that "that is not the Nixon I know" as he himself was one of his spiritual advisors.

So; he's human. We all make mistakes and I am just thankful that he watches his language and reads his messages correctly for the most part in public and shows sympathy for many.
---Shari on 7/18/06

Some here think that Bush walks on water.

Others think he is lower that whale stuff on the ocean bottom.

For the latter, I wonder if they actually saw him walk on water, or was the latter, should they require an environmental impact statement from the President?

One Christan woman who writes for a Christian magazine remarked on this subject of "dirty words" is that it's the hatred they are used with that makes them dirty; how can sounds and syllables be dirty in themselves?

As she pointed out, a man whose livelihood depends on the fertility of his livestock can hardly expect to be coy about referring to their digestive and reproductive functions.
---Jack on 7/18/06

Elder if you want it to count, thats ok :D

knowing my past, Im not going to judge.
---NurseRobert on 7/18/06

Actually, I was semi serious when I asked the question. There are those on this site that think his stuff doesnt stink. Honestly, I don't really care what word he used. I even admit that I have rattled it off more than once (its a nursing term, after all :D).

I still don't think he is a good president.
---NurseRobert on 7/18/06

the word "crap" was used by a very holy contributor to these blogs. In the US, presumably an acceptable word. In the UK, not a word to be used in the best circles.

Donna: Sorry, I missed the sarcasm. You are right about this issue being much ado about nothing.
---Madison1101 on 7/18/06

I don't believe the President thought he made a mistake or even was all that aware of the word he chose. My sense is that a word like that is part of his vocabulary and it's how he speaks in a casual social situation. That word is probably spoken so much down on the ranch that it is second nature. When he read the transcript of what he said he just chuckled. The Prez. is a man of action, not words, unlike...well nevermind. What you do speaks so loudly that what you say I can not hear.
---ralph7477 on 7/18/06

Whether or not you agree with his politics, Pres. G.W.Bush is a Christian. There is far too much evidence, not just his words, but by others who are quite credible, to say otherwise. He is not a pastor, nor does he claim to be a spiritual leader. He is a flawed man, doing the best he can in the calling he believes God gave him. How can we expect or ask for more. And, furthermore, I believe Pres. Clinton is a Christian - something the Lord showed me years ago, a brilliant man, also flawed.
---daphn8897 on 7/18/06

Madison--My response to Nurse was just a wise crack. I wouldn't blame ANY president in this situation, Christian or not, for saying what Bush did. I can't see why everybody's got their knickers in a knot.

Who has determined what words are curses and what words are not. In the US if we say bloody, it is not a curse...but I think it is in England. So why are some words worse than others. With the exception of taking the Lord's name in vain, why are the other words so bad?
---mary on 7/18/06

Madison's answer is perfect! Wake up America! Our president is not really a born-again Christian - he is just using his false witness to get the Christian vote! If he had known he could be heard speaking to Blair, I guarantee you he would have watched his mouth to protect his image. He didn't get where he is through being his "honest" self - none of them do!
---melissa on 7/18/06

Madison, I don't think Pres. Bush is invincible or perfect. I do think He is the man God wanted in the White House. You are right, he certainly is human. I guess that means there's hope for the rest of us ;o)

One point here - he used a vulgar word - he didn't misuse the Lord's name - nor did he slander another. He expressed frustration over a very difficult international situation. If I was Mrs. Bush, I might've given him the "hairy eyeball", but beyond that....
---daphn8897 on 7/18/06

no he should not have and neither should we.
that is what 1. john ch 1 v 9 is for!!
more important is America must involve in this struggle. The enemy is not terror it is islam. The q'uran orders the death of all those not muslim. i read it this weekend, and we have all been conned about islam, it is a false religion of war!!nothing less!this "religion" seeks the anhilation of all israel! this is ordered in their book!

Donna2277: I expected it from Bush, just like you would expect it from Clinton or Kerry. I never thought Bush walked on water in the first place. I always knew he was human, and prone to making mistakes. Too bad there are so many Christians who think he is invincible. Just wonder what other mistakes he makes while in office, like the important decisions you all think he is great for.
---Madison1101 on 7/17/06

Steve: I heard that LBJ once had the press following him into the bathroom, where he continued his business and addressed their questions at the same time. I just loved his candor. He didn't care what you thought. I trust people who shoot from the hip.
---Madison1101 on 7/17/06

I can not get excited by what the Pres. said. It is not a sin but perhaps an example of a little impatience. It does not rank with keeping a book out of the library a day past the due date.
---Josep8873 on 7/17/06

Nurse, I for one, along with many many others, forgave Clinton for his Fornication and Kerry for his lies and their filthy language.

I just finished hearing what happen and how they forgot the mike was on, He was talking to Blair, and what he said was nothing like, "I did not have sexual relations with that women" now that is bad. Just a joke, please don't take it serious. Many Christians fail and I cannot see why we cannot move forward.

Anyone that has been in the US Navy should not be held accountable for cussing as that is something we all learn to do even without thinking.

Bill Clinton has a potty mouth, no one made a big deal out of it, he had other 'habits' that were worse.
The worst offender I've ever heard of was LBJ, he was nasty and purposely tried to embarass his staffers. Read his biography written by a staff member!
Kennedy was no saint either.
---Steve on 7/17/06

1. There are more important things going on in the world to concern ourselves and pray about. 2. How many people can honestly say they have never cussed? 3. Bush was talking to his friend Blair and didn't know the mike was on. 4. Bush is not perfect.

Yep, better not use that kind of language, but it happens.
One word, not a string of expletives, I can understand to a degree his frustration. As most have said, get over it!

---Rebecca_D on 7/17/06

Many people, including good Christians, cuss. I don't feel this is a reason to condemn the president. He has shown very good moral character in the past and should not be seen as less of a man because of this transgression.
