I don’t know why ANYTHING stupid that GW does surprises me anymore. But, this may be my all time favorite, if for no other reason than to affirm, in jaw-dropping fashion, how ridiculously cocky and clueless our President is.
As we know, Bush is in Australia, the country that is kind of like a cooler cousin to the U.S., but with their own complete fucktard of a leader, but I digress.
Anyhoo, Bushie stopped by the Iraq on the way just to bolster the morale of the troops and, you know, check in. Then, after arriving in Australia, a conversation between Bush and a Deputy Prime Minister was caught by the press. When the fella asked Bush how it was going in the Iraq, Bush replied—SWEAR to God—“We’re kickin’ ass!”
Then he apparently went to a kegger.
Seriously, is he that deluded? You'd be hard pressed to find ANYONE who would even classify the war on Iraq as a success. But "We're kickin' ass?" Wow. Maybe he just got it backwards and meant to say, "We're getting our ass kicked." That would ccertainly make more sense.
This is the second thing Bush has said while Down Under that just floored me. The first was when he was walking into a formal dinner, accompanied by Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. He turned to Secretary Rice and said, “You can be my date.” WHA?!!? She’s the fucking Secretary of STATE, dude. He would never have said that to Colin Powell.
Oh, Dr. Rice! They ate your brain, didn’t they? January 20, 2009 can't come soon enough.
