During tonight’s presidential debate, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) was asked how he would use President Bush if he were elected president. Tancredo said he has “been so disappointed in the president in so many ways,” and that he would tell Bush to “never darken the doorstep” of his White House. The audience applauded. Watch it:

Asked the same question about Bush, former governor Tommy Thompson said he “would put him out on a lecture series” talking to “the youth of America” about “honesty” and “integrity.”

Digg It!

Transcript:

TANCREDO: Some time ago, in 2003 I think it was, that I got a call from Karl Rove, who told me that, because of my criticism of the president, I should never darken the doorstep of the White House.

I have been so disappointed in the president in so many ways since his — actually for the last several years, not just the immigration issue, but several other things, including the No Child Left Behind and the massive increase in government that we call prescription drug — Medicare prescription drug, that I’m afraid I would have to tell the president of the United States — I mean, as president, I would have to tell George Bush exactly the same thing Karl Rove told me.
