spent some time with them folks that don't look all that much like (and thank the

that small favour -- that they don't), he's be a little more in the groove with his

think that the problem with Trenty is we're so used to him saying nothing in a hundred

Bush Denounces Lott's Remarks
Calls Comments 'Offensive' and 'Wrong'

Thursday, December 12, 2002; 1:15 PM

PHILADELPHIA - President Bush, in rare criticism of a fellow Republican, said Thursday 
was offensive and wrong for Senate Republican leader Trent Lott to have said a
segregationist candidate for president should have won in 1948.

"Any suggestion that a segregated past was acceptable or positive is offensive and it 
wrong," Bush said to loud and long applause in a speech about his faith-based agenda.

"Recent comments by Sen. Lott do not reflect the spirit of our country," Bush said.

Lott said Wednesday he made "a mistake of the head, not the heart" by saying last week
the nation would have been better off if 1948 segregationist candidate Strom Thurmond
had been elected president.

He admitted the comment, made during a 100th birthday tribute to the South Carolina
Republican senator, could be seen as offensive and asked for forgiveness.

"He (Lott) has apologized and rightly so. Every day our nation was segregated was a day
that America was unfaithful to our founding ideals," Bush said. "And the founding 
ideals of
our nation and in fact the founding ideals of the political party I represent was and 
today the equal dignity and equal rights of every American."
