Conservative lap dog and House Minority Leader John Boehner is asking the greatest contemporary composer, Sir Paul McCartney, after the former Beatle took a shot at ludicrous boob President Bush during a recent White House ceremony.
McCartney was awarded the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song - a lifetime achievement award given by the Library of Congress.
Upon receiving the award, McCartney deadpanned, "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is."
The comments generated laughter and cheers from the audience in the East Room, but Boehner said the remark showed a "lack of grace and respect."
"Like millions of other Americans, I know that President Bush was the greatest US President in history. That is why I am so surprised that Paul McCartney would disparage him."
"Mccartney has joined the vocal minority in bashing President Bush. He is an intelligent, articulate man, despite what was written about him by editors from such newspapers and magazines as USA Today, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, New York Post, Long Island Newsday, Houston Chronicle, Cleveland Plain Dealer, St. Petersburg Times, Portland Oregonian, San Diego Union-Tribune, Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News, Miami Herald, Sacramento Bee, Orange County Register and St. Louis Post-DispatchHarper's Magazine, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Common Dreams NewsCenter, and The Nation, who have referred to Bush as 'the worst president ever.' "
McCartney's comments came at the end of the ceremony and Obama did not reference them.
President Bush was too busy playing with his toy trains to comment.
