Bush to Hezbollah: "Stop doing this shit"

Knock that shit off!
Call it "caught on an open microphone" if you want. It sounded more like straight shooting to me when US President George Bush was heard to use some earthy language in discussing the fighting in the eastern Mediterranean region. More Bush quotes from the G8 summit meeting in St Petersburg, Russia:
Talking to British Prime Minister Tony Blair at a working lunch at the G8 summit, Bush also hinted that US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would take a bigger role in the crisis, and appeared to express frustration about UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

'I think Condi's going to go pretty soon,' the US president said, leaving Rice's destination unclear, though she is widely expected to travel to the region after a UN fact-finding team returns.

Later, Bush added that 'the irony is, what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit, and it's over,' though he does not specify who 'they' are.

And he appeared to express frustration about Annan, saying 'I felt like telling Kofi to get on the phone with Assad, make something happen.'

The recording picked up as Bush, apparently expected to make remarks, declared: 'I'm just going to make it up. I'm not going to talk too damn long like the rest of them. Some of these guys talk too long.'
You tell 'em, W! Don't hold back on Kofi Anan, either. We can use some tough talk for this tough situation.
