A "crusader", if you will

George W. Bush runs into a questioner in Florida who doesn't understand that certain things are only to be said in code:

Q ... And also, I just want to say, thank you very much for the way that you run the government with the beliefs of -- your Christian beliefs, and not letting others -- (applause) -- bring you down when you stand behind on your beliefs. It's very important. (Applause.) All the Christians stand behind you.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Yes, ma'am.

While Bush has been accused in the past of only taking screened questions, read further down in the transcript to see the risk of taking unscreened questions. But given the administration's incompetence, maybe the dudes with the "patent to control hurricanes" and "the solution to Social Security" were screened.
