From the transcript of a meeting at a trucking company in Virginia where Bush spoke at length on many subjects and took questions from attendees which were obviously all setup in advance. In the course of one question, here is what he said:
Q (Inaudible.) And we're proud of you Mr. President, and your --
THE PRESIDENT: Keep it up, will you? (Laughter.) About time.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Laughter and applause.) It's always good to have a plant in every audience, you know? (Laughter.)
The word "plant" must be on his mind alot when he attends these staged events. He must be fully aware, and reassured, that he is almost always talking to groups that his handlers have pre-screened and which have had questions planted among them. He knows how it all works. He just spoke the truth out loud.
