Default Francoise Ducros, Who's the Moron?

Francoise Ducros





T O R O N T O, Nov. 22 — A three-word comment attributed to an aide to Prime Minister Jean Chretien dominated Canadian news reports Friday, with newspapers and broadcasts leading with the story of how she reportedly called President Bush a moron.

"What a moron," is the quote attributed to Francoise Ducros, Chretien's communications director, who reportedly was talking to a reporter about Bush in a private conversation this week at the NATO summit in Prague, the Czech capital.

Other reporters who say they overheard the comment wrote about it in newspapers published Thursday, and opposition members in Parliament called for her resignation later in the day.

Chretien, at his closing news conference Friday in Prague, said Ducros offered her resignation because of the furor but that he rejected it. He also said she told him she was unsure if she made the remark but acknowledged she uses the word "moron" frequently.

"She may have used that word against me a few times and I am sure she used it against you many times," Chretien told journalists, adding that "we don't live in as civilized a world as we used to, where private conversations are private."

After the remark was first reported on Thursday, White House press secretary Ari Fleischer told American reporters: "I just dismiss it as something from someone who doesn't speak for the Canadian government."

Chretien said he received no official complaints from U.S. officials at the summit and that the issue caused no damage to Canadian-U.S. relations.

On Thursday, when first asked about the reported comment, Chretien said Bush was "not a moron at all, he's a friend. My personal relations with the president are extremely good."

Thumbs down

What would you expect less ?? From one of these lesbian feminazi ultra-socialists to have so much power that they feel they can call an American President names LOL The reality is only because the best and brightest Canadians emigrate to the U.S. where they can earn a decent living without oppressive taxes and socialist indoctrination.

That Canadian dictator Cretin or whatever his name AKA a stooge double look alike is another loser with the real-estate deals going down on restaurant napkins and the mindless banter to the Bums in the park Makes Clinton look like a Saint.

Actually, I think there are probably times when Bush could be called a moron, as well as the rest of us. I know I'm a moron quite often.

Not by a Communications Director from Canada. Pretty classless.

Anyone who says anything negative about the President of the United States, even in private, shall be buried up to their ears and stoned til death.




Is this where we're going?

Aaahh err you got that very wrong It was Gore who destroyed his brain on Drugs (smoked way too much Opium) Shows BTW on his repeated collage flunkouts.

Also what did Clinton Pardon his Brother/Coke supplier for?? That family should have voluntarily stopped breeding eight or ten generations ago.

Incase you did not know; George W. Bush was born July 6th, 1946 and grew up in Midland and Houston, Texas. He received a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

The funniest thing is the Liberals and or their Prancing Transvestite supporters is that they
Continually underestimate Mr. Bush while he methodically goes on his way to become our Greatest President.

Parting Shot

There is a BIG difference between real intelligence and being a BLOWHARD DEMOCRAT
A confidently intelligent person is humble and reserved. An insecure, intellectually challenged person often pontificates to display the persona of a pseudo-smarty-pants (anyone we know). CASE CLOSED.

While on the subject of Canada

- Constitutional Republic gives head of state dictator like powers. Not kept in check

* - Charter of Rights and Freedoms not as strong as Bill Of Rights by far

* - Socialized health care is bull****

* - No right to bear arms

* - Under populated

* - Not enough National Unity
Chretien is a dictator, plain and simple. He's only slightly ahead of Castro or Sadaam.

Check out the Toronto Sun and one Eric Margolis. This "international journalist" has continually emitted a steady diatribe of anti-USA half-truths, innuendos, and "perceptions." The pro-Islamist flavor of his articles practically drips off the page/screen. Yet another identity-challenged poltroon from the Great White North.

More deserving of the company of Noam Chomsky, Susan Sontag, and all others that swim in the putrid swamp of hate.


It speaks well of Bush that the liberals hate/fear him even more than they do Reagan. Keep up the good work, GW!

Of all the Presidents whose IQs were measured, his was the lowest.

Not Bush-bashing here, just stating facts that are public knowledge. If you want more Bushfaqs go to www.democrats.com
Cat, actually the IQ testing I believe your refering to conducted by the "Lovestein Institute" was a hoax going around the net in early 2001. While some publications published the report, the "lovestein Institute" does not exist. US News and World Report did in fact call the "report" a hoax.


While the link you posted is certainly humorous....I don't think I'd go so far as to label it "factual"

In any case, my point to this thread was just to express my dissapointment of other Countries officials bashing our Presidents (yes, I said Presidents meaning our former ones as well) It's one thing for the general public to do so, we all do it all the time. But I believe it crosses the line when other Government Officials do it. In my opinion there is enough "America Bashing" in the world today and comments like that don't help the cause. In my humble opinion most of the rest of the world doesn't know how lucky they are to have the world's superpower be the United States.
