Before the birth certificate madness began this morning, there was some other actual news happening. Among that news was a shakeup among the nation's intelligence heads. So when former President George W. Bush appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" to talk about an upcoming charity bike ride, host George Stephanopoulos decided to ask the president about the shakeup. That's when this happened:
Bush: Is this gossip or truth?
Stephanopoulos: No, it’s truth, we are reporting it this morning. It is done. It’s being announced later this week.
Bush: Just because you’re reporting it, as you might recall, doesn’t necessarily mean . . . (laughter)
Stephanopoulos: I’m fairly confident on this one, this morning Mr. President.
