Diplomatic Language

So by now I am sure that most people have heard what President Bush said during a coversation with Prime Minister Tony Blair about the situation in the Middle East. If not, below is the video. Some people have been outraged that he would act like this.

My fiancee was horrified by this. Not by the language but by the way he acted towards Blair, i.e. talking over him and talking with his mouth full. And she is the Republican.

Personally, I do not have a problem with the language. It was a conversation that was not really meant for public consumption. Furthermore, its probably the most coherent policy that Bush has been able to articulate since he was back at Yale.
