2006–Bush Sr on W: “But he doesn’t get to play much.The press at home give him hell if he goes out and plays golf”

In September 2006, George Bush Sr attended the Ryder Cup held at the K Club in Ireland. He gave an interview to BBC Five Live Sport’s John Inverdale at the K Club. There is a post on the interview at theBBC Ryder Cup blog as well as the link to audio of the interview. I transcripted the following from that interview which can be heard starting at the 1:05 mark:

BBC Five Live Sport’s John Inverdale: Does your son play?

George Bush Sr:The President? He’s about 15,16. But he doesn’t get to play much. The press at home give him hell if he goes out and plays golf. He came to visit Barbara and me the other day up in Maine where we are and ah said you got to come up [uninteligible] and play. He said no the press would just you know here we are fighting, so it’s just not, not good. He can ride bikes. He can’t run anymore but he rides bikes.

Or below is re-recording of the audio of above (35 seconds):

  1. I am so sorry, how dare we ask that he do his damned job we elected Gore to do!
    And – that he do it w/at least a modicum of professionalism that we have yet to see.
    Nope, we get the most vaycayshunin’, brush clearin’, coke-snortin’, wile turkee swillin’, back-rubbin’, bass-catchin’, cake-eatin’, illegal-war-startin’, environment-destroyin’, economy-killin’ preznit…EVAHHHHH!!!!

  2. What gets me is that he didn’t have to say anything. But he decided to paint himself as Mother Theresa.
