Maybe not in so many words, but if he likes the company of men that are alumni of Time's Man of the Year, he'll be meeting a lot of people in a very hot place deep underground, with fire and brimstone to boot. President Bush was very candid (perhaps clueless as well) about the award and just might have revealed a little too much, even if the comments appear innocent on the outside.
From The Huffington Post:
President Bush gave an end of the year press conference today. Amid questions about congressional spending, the CIA tape investigation and the Iraq war, Bush was asked what he thought about TIME magazine's choice to name Russian President Vladimir Putin as its Person of the Year.
Bush responded, "You know I'm looking forward to seeing him at the alumni meeting of the men of the year...or the Persons of The Year. I don't know when it's going to be, but... " Bush was TIME's Person of The Year in 2000 and 2004.
If the dictator and/or Tsar-like Putin isn't bad enough to meet up with, he might want to remember who were some of the other winners of this wonderful award.
