“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.

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

    He must have been eating the eponymous Southwest Chicken Souffle preceded by Marshmallow Soup.  http://risesouffle.com/index.php?page=menu

     Kind of a dark comment in a post about souffle

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

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

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

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

    True, I guess I’m just confused as to why he didn’t stay for dessert?

    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.

     Bush wore Oxxford Clothes suits when he was president…it is sad that I know that

  18. Posted by Guest | May 13, 2011 at 3:45 PM

    Actually,

    (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

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

    It was Alton Lane.  Because he wants his suits to look like a million bucks, not cost the same.

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

    Isn’t souffle dessert?

     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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, I know that.

    Actually, secret service detail is only for 10 years after presidency.

     ”(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?

  49. Posted by Guest | May 14, 2011 at 3:39 AM

    “(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.

    “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.

  53. Posted by Guest | May 16, 2011 at 7:09 PM

    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.
