Great extended interview (RealMedia) – runs over 11 minutes.
Reaction here, here, here and here. Also here which includes a quote that the journalist had submitter her questions three days in advance to the White House.
Update: They’ve canceled Laura Bush’s interview with Irish media. Some gloating over at WaPo.

I saw the interview. From my perspective, the reporter did indeed ask some hard questions, and Bush just plain didn’t offer much in the way of answers. He talked a good deal, and offered a number of platitudes that many Americans mystifyingly accept as answers. But he came off looking like an addlepated jerk.
I was appalled when he said “i have a vision. i’m going to lead to that vision and let the chips fall where they may” — this leads me to the assumption that he truly does not care where the chips fall as long as he thinks he keep to his own personal view of things. a true fuck them all attitude. which, to me, is a dangerous attitude for a world leader.
I couldn’t stop laughing. He’s obviously near his breaking point and I hope he snaps. And poor lil’ old Laura, couldn’t argue her way out of a wet paper bag much less answer some simple questions, so they cancelled the interview. “This interview is too hard, let’s go read books to some negro children instead!”
‘Fuck them all’ or ‘Go fuck yourself?’ 🙂
Erin go bragh!
