Questions asked at Press ConferencesEdit

  • Since there've been so many questions about what the President was doing over 30 years ago, what is it he did after his honorable discharge from the National Guard? Did he make speeches alongside Jane Fonda denouncing America's racist war in Vietnam? Did he testify before Congress that American troops committed war crimes in Vietnam? And did he throw somebody else's medals at the White House to protest a war America was still fighting? What was he doing after his honorable discharge? — February 10, 2004
  • The Welfare Reform Act comes up this year for renewal. Is the President supporting efforts to insert meaningful work requirements into the bill, for today there is none? — February 18, 2004
  • Doesn't Joe Wilson owe the President and American an apology for his deception and his own intelligence failure? — March 15, 2004
  • In your denunciations of the Abu Ghraib photos, you've used words like sickening, disgusting, and reprehensible. Will you have any words left to adequately describe the pictures from Saddam's rape rooms and torture chambers? Will Americans ever see those images? — May 10, 2004
  • Why hasn't the administration made more of the U.N. Inspector's report that says Saddam Hussein was dismantling his missile and W.M.D. sites before and during the war? — June 15, 2004
  • With all the reaching out that's going around here, the President said Thursday in his press conference that he was reaching out to the press corp. What did he mean by that and why would he feel the need to reach out to a group of supposedly non-partisan people? — November 8, 2004
  • Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. [Senate Minority Leader] Harry Reid was talking about soup lines. And [Senator] Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet in the same breath they say that Social Security is rock solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work – you've said you are going to reach out to these people – how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality? — January 26, 2005
