In a joint press conference held with British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Thursday, President Bush expressed regret over the use of provocative language in reference to the war on Terror. He specifically mentioned regretting using the terms "Bring it On" and "Wanted Dead or Alive" when referring to Osama Bin Laden.
When asked by reporters if there were any other phrases that he would refrain from using in reference to terrorists, the president provided this list :
- Gonna open up a big can of Texas Whoop Ass on those boys
- Neener Neener Neener
- Osama Bin Butthead
- Jihad Shmeehad
- Abu Musab Zarqawi is gonna be the guest of honor at my Fourth of July BBQ - if you get my drift.
President Bush also agreed to stop using the following terms when speaking about the Muslim religion:
- Jesus rocks and Allah rots
President Bush closed the press conference by apologizing to anyone in the world whom he offended with the use of the above terms and said,"I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner. However, I reserve the right to refer to Tony Blair as a pansy whenever he's not around."
