Russian reporters asking the tough questions of Bush that our own right wing corporate media should be asking. Bush must have been upset that the reporters were not screened for compliancy. No lobbing of softball questions here. Heh heh.

'"The regimes in place in Russia and the U.S. cannot be considered fully democratic, especially when compared to some other countries of Europe, for example — for example, the Netherlands," the Russian reporter said, his preamble taking so long that Bush pursed his lips in apparent impatience.

He then asked Bush how the "great powers that have been assumed by the security services" in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks square with democratic values.
"We could probably talk at length," the journalist said.

Bush clearly wasn't interested in that. He offered a brisk retort that democracy is doing just fine in America.'
