Politician Demands Mccartney Apologise For Bush Gag

A top U.S. politician is demanding SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY publicly apologise for a joke he made at former President GEORGE W. BUSH's expense during an appearance at the White House on Wednesday (02Jun10).
Republican John Boehner was not amused when the former Beatle poked fun at the ex-leader's intellect as he became the first non-American to collect the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from Bush's successor, President Barack Obama.
MCCartney said, "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows where the library is."

Tho many will agree with McCartney's comment, it was not the wisest move on his part. Now, especially that he is touring the country and in front of large audiences where someone could could find reason to retaliate. He was a guest at the White House and should have used better judgment than to accept an honor with an off-handed remark about a former US President.

For reasons yet to be given, it seems that THIS PARTICULAR President is the ONLY one in the history of all the United States Presidents that non one is allowed to criticise or disagree with. Everything he does is wonderful and turns to gold is the widely thought process. Even though there are many things that he has done in error that adversely affected a lot of people in his short 18 months. I also wish that celebrities would keep their yaps shut about their personal political or religion preferences unless they are SURE that EVERYONE in their audience thinks EXACTLY the same way they do. How gall it was of Sir Paul - he is not an American, he was a guest from another country in the White House and he should have behaved accordingly. It was bad judgement on his part. And also kind of RACIAL for him to say its always an honor to get such an award from a President, but "moreso from THIS particular President". Wasn't Paul also friends with Bill Clinton?? So why THIS President particularly, Paul????

Well considering his second marriage and how he praised her prior, I'd say that McCartney's judgment of a person's true character is not so well tuned!! LOL

You say Sir Paul was right - but so are those Americans who voice discontent with the President's health bill, and how his staff have mishandled security incidents lately that almost resulted in new bombing. And let us not forget this current oil situation that he has taken his sweet time dealing with!! Oh but that's right, Paul, YOU want everyone to "lay off him!" :-/
