Bush condemns Hamas for their bad PR
After hearing that Hamas did well in elections, President Bush stated, "I don't see how you can be a partner in peace if you advocate the destruction of a country as part of your platform. And I know you can't be a partner in peace if you have a -- if your party has got an armed wing. ... But I will continue to remind people about what I just said, that if your platform is the destruction of Israel, it means you're not a partner in peace. And we're interested in peace."

Later that day, Hamas clarified their positions. No longer seeking the destruction of Israel, Hamas now calls for "regime change" in Israel. The armed wing of Hamas has been shut down, and a new "Hamas Department of Defense" has opened in its place.

"Thank you," said President Bush. "That's much better. I now declare that Hamas is a partner in peace and a man of peace just like Ariel Sharon."
