I'm sorry, could you repeat that?

“President” Bush held a news conference this morning which covered a wide array of topics…

Fear-mongering (he said the country is in more danger now that a temporary surveillance law has expired)... recession (Bush says America is in a “slowdown” and not headed into a recession like every other economist on the planet has suggested)… and $4 gasoline.

It was $4 gas that prompted the best exchange of the presser when Bush was asked by a reporter what “advice” he would give to the “average American” who is “facing the prospect of $4 a gallon gasoline.”

Bush’s reply was a curt; “That’s interesting, I hadn’t heard that.”

Minutes later, Bush was asked a question regarding donations for his presidential library which he refused to answer, saying; “I, frankly, have been focused elsewhere, like on gasoline prices.”

Um... okay?
