George Bush Tells Hedge Fund Community What He Was Eating When He Got The Call About Osama

“I was eating souffle at Rise Restaurant with Laura and two buddies,” Bush said on Wednesday at the SALT Conference in Vegas, when asked what he was doing when he received the call from President Obama. “I excused myself and went home to take the call,” Bush said. “Obama simply said ‘Osama Bin Laden is dead.'” [ABC]

     Souffle? Weak.

     Osama dies and you excuse yourself immediately.  Thousands die as buildings collapse, you continue reading.  Makes sense.

       Kind of a dark comment in a post about souffle

    • Guest says:


      (1) they we’re impressionable little kids he was reading to, you dipshit;
      (2) Buildings didn’t collaps and “thousands” didn’t die untill hours later;
      (3) he excused himself to take a telecon from POTUS, regardless subject (per prototocol)

      To sum:
      Get a fucking clue

      -Other than that, I have no concern

         I’d like to know where he was when he came to the realization that he has fucked up this country for at least a generation. Cocksucker.

         “(2) Buildings didn’t collaps and “thousands” didn’t die untill hours later;”

        yeah. I mean, he was told that a plane had crashed into the WTC but that’s not such a big deal right? how was he to know people would die as a result?

      • Guest says:

        “(2) Buildings didn’t collaps and “thousands” didn’t die untill hours later;”

        and since we’re talking about bush, it’s actually conceivable that he didn’t realize people in the buildings hit (which he was told about) would die.

        in sum:
        get a fucking clue.

      It was a lighthearted remark to juxtapose his reactions to the two situations.  Calm down, folks.

    …and then I took an “Osama”… two shots and a splash of water.

    At least it wasn’t quiche.

    He must have been eating the eponymous Southwest Chicken Souffle preceded by Marshmallow Soup.

    • FinkNottle says:

      Everyone knows that the only souffle to get at Rise is the lobster souffle. It’s not on the menu, natch.

  6. Guest says:

    More importantly, what was he wearing? Was it Armani, Canali, Brioni, Carhartt…?

    Having a US president report to you when you are grabbing some midnight tacos with your buddies is the NKI

  8. Guest says:

    Makes sense. Anything harder, like pretzels, is a security risk. 

  9. guest says:

    I normally like to enjoy a quiet souffle alone with my wife and not bring two frat buddies along, but hey, that’s just me.

    “Two buddies” is code for Secret Service detail. 

    Everyone loves to hate Bush, so I’m guessing he can’t go out without major security detail, lest he be attacked by some dirty hippie or Ivy League grad-turned-banker who thinks he’s so f*cking smart. 

    • Anonymous says:

      No former presidents can go out without the Secret Service, regardless of whether or not they’re hated by ‘some dirty hippy or Ivy League grad turned banker who thinks he’s so f*cking smart,” as they get a Secret Service detail for life.

      Other than that I have no concerns.

      “Dirty hippies (?)”  Did I time-travel back to the ’60’s?

    Running train on Laura Bush while eating souffle is the NKI.

     Souffle?  He’s lucky he’s not a Democrat.   

  13. Ben Dover says:

    Truth is, his spins doctors just didn’t want to say QUICHE.

    • JR says:

      If he threw a baseball like Barrack “Mommy Jeans” Obama, the quiche thing would be a worry. That, however, is not the case. W might be a bit slow but he’s not an effete mamby pamby like Barry.

      Unless you find out the resturaunt is ‘Rise’ and famous for…Souffle…

     Want to know what I was eating when I got the call? 

  15. leadbelly says:

    I though he was eating crow 

  16. HFguy says:

    “I excused myself and went home to take the call,” — WTF, doesnt he have a cellphone and was Obama holding the call for his highness to come and pick it up.

    -Guy with no concern

    • Guest says:

      Presumably he took the call on his secure line at his house, not on an un-secure cell phone, hence he excused himeself and returned home.
