Bush video gaffe

The BBC has a video from St Petersburg of President Bush talking to Tony Blair. Unfortunately Mr Bush didn't realize his microphone was on and sat there talking with his mouth full and telling Blair "What they have to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit". Blair, being the professional life long politician knows what a microphone-on light looks like, mumbled some politer response and later turned off Bush's microphone. Duh :-) On the up side we now know that, regardless of whether you agree with them or not, the worlds leaders can cut through diplomatic waffle and call it as they see it.

The BBC presenter also seemed to take some pleasure in saying the word "shit" on TV. :-)
