Bush Press Conference Transcript.

You can read the entire transcript of the President's press conference here. We'll have more Friday, but three things stood out:

1. Lots of repetitive questions on North Korea.

2. President Bush's pitch on No Child Left Behind needs work (and should be a lot easier):

He could say something like,

We need NCLB because-
I. Competition with China, India, and others, which are producing more engineers than we are. It's about the global marketplace.
II. It works. Scores are up. Less kids are slipping through the cracks.
III. Ultimately, the goal is school choice, rewarding successful teachers with merit pay, and other education reforms; we're only on phase one.

...and then just end it.

3. Lots of predictable questions. Just before the press conference began, the Mrs. and I came up with three certain-to-be-asked questions/statements by the press corps.

First, "your poll numbers are awful and nobody likes you..."

Second, "the religious right is taking over your administration and the country..."

Third, "terrorism is way up under your administration..."

Fourth, "why aren't you doing anything about 'record' gas prices?"


...Sure enough. All of them.

[sigh]

More to come Friday.

That is so funny! I had a feeling they would play up the religious right much more than they actually did! I believe the gas prices are the true reason for the polls being as they read, but I figured they didn't want the President to go into that too much because of how awesome he answered! ... I really think our President did so well last night!!...He is so non partisan! I really like that. He just wants everyone to get to work and stop wasting time! He is such a gift to our country! Having a man like him to lead us in this crazy world we live in today we all should be so thankful...
