...Speaking of trolling, the week was capped by a whopper of a fish tale. Bush lied about catching a fish. That is, among the softball questions tossed at him during an interview for a German magazine was: 'What has been the most wonderful moment of your presidency?' His answer: 'When I caught 7 1/2-pound perch on my lake.' 

Besides confirming what a pathetic soulless human being he is, the answer proves his ability to lie anytime, anywhere about anything. When the story broke, every media outlet reported the fish as a 'perch.' The U.S. record for largest perch ever caught is 4 pounds, 9 ounces, in 1971. If we are to believe Bush, he nearly doubled the record?...

Does it lower your opinion of President Bush when he lied about catching a 7+ pound perch?

Don't know that my opinion could go any lower...
Maybe the Huge Perch is part of a bigger plan to scare away terrorists?

I like Bush because he supports illegal aliens.

Everyone lies about the fish they catch.

I've done it, and I expect others too.

So no, it doesn't lower my opinion of him.

It seems to me like it was meant as a joke...but I don't really care, to tell you the truth, if he lied about a fish. My opinion stays the same.

"The U.S. record for largest perch ever caught is 4 pounds, 9 ounces, in 1971."

That is their basis for why you think Bush is lying? I'me pretty sure he was kidding, but if he wasn't, there are many species of Perc that grow to be massive, and they can all crossbreed. It don't have to be a Yellow Perch, it could have been any of the subspecies. Also, fish, like some reptiles, contenue to grow throughout their lives. Assuming he isn't joking, it isn't unlikely that he caught an old Perch, especially seeing as it was in a small lake, and it was no doubt pretty high on the food chain.

It supports my opinion of him, but doesn't change it for the better or the worse.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/28/06 - 4:39:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
My opinion of this man couldn't possibly be any lower than it already is.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/28/06 - 4:40:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why is everyone always so mean to Bush?
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/28/06 - 5:08:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, everyone lies at one point or another.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/28/06 - 5:09:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I concentrate on the politics not his personal hobbies
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/28/06 - 5:11:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hunters lie about the size of their catches.
Men lie about the size of their penises.
Women lie about their age and weight.

Get the f*ck over it.

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 4:03:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
The fact that he even fishes lowers my opinion of him.

Agreed.

But that aside, what a dumb thing to lie about. I mean, I'm sure he was just trying to come up with some cute response to the question that would make everyone chuckle, but he even failed at that since he couldn't come up with a real story. Sad.

I really enjoyed this line in the story, by the way: "Besides confirming what a pathetic soulless human being he is,"

I really don't think it was a joke, the interview was a serious one. Besides with all his problems, catching a fish probably *is* the best thing that's happened during his presidency.

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 7:38:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hate bush, PERIOD!
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 7:47:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think my opinion of Bush could get any lower anyways.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 10:21:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
maybe it wasnt a birch and he's just not bright.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 10:28:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not surprised at all. He is an idiot!!!
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/29/06 - 10:31:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like President Bush, and it dosen't lower my opinion one little bit. Dosen't every fisherman in the world tend to stretch the truth, even just a little? It's not like he was lying about interns in the oval office or anything.

Not really.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/17/06 - 9:02:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Surely you can find a better reason to dislike him.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/17/06 - 9:15:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
What fisherman doesn't lie about the size of the fish he catches?
