How does Bush misquoting him have anything to do with this? I give Bush a lot of credit for having these meetings where he takes questions, also note how Bush quiets the jeers. Regardless of that, of course his phone won't be tapped, that's a stupid thing to say.
every president should be taking these meetings as a normal part of their job- it's been five years and he's been on vacation more than any other president while simultaneously holding less press conferences- I'm not giving him credit for doing his job
First of all, yeah Bush goes to Crawford a lot. But he's still the president. He's still doing the job. Any reasonable person knows that the president doesn't ever really go on vacation. Did Clinton take unscripted questions audiences on a regular basis? That's a serious question, I can't recall it. So if you can show me an instance where Clinton or a previous president did this, please do so.
clinton and his associates all held press conferences on a regular basis. when he was president, blow jobs were the biggest concern for americans- not a "war on terror" and two real wars in foreign lands. futhermore, the man was rarely on vacation in comparison to this President- relaxing for 2 days at martha's vineyard before jetting of for summits at camp davis hardly count as vacations. Bush managed to eclipse reagan for most time off 5 years into his presidency compared to Reagan's 8 years in office- that should tell you something about a man who claims to be a "war president".
Ok you clearly did not read my post very closely. I am aware that Bush has a small number of press conferences, relatively. I am asking if Clinton ever had these town hall meetings where he took unscripted questions from real people. Obviously press conferences are unscripted. And I'm not saying he didn't, this is a serious question. Please show me an instance of this. Also, I'm not saying Clinton took too much vacation. I'm saying that the president, no matter who he is, doesn't really go on vacation like other people. The president may leave the White House, but that doesn't mean he's stopped doing his job.
