Our dimbulb President
From Political Wire
“Had I known that the enemy was going to use airplanes to strike America, to attack us, I would have used every resource, every asset, every power of this government to protect the American people.”
— President Bush quoted yesterday by the Associated Press.
On August 6, 2001, President Bush personally “received a one-and-a-half page briefing advising him that Osama bin Laden was capable of a major strike against the US, and that the plot could include the hijacking of an American airplane.” — NBC News, 9/10/02, via the Center for American Progress
President George Bush sparked a political firestorm yesterday after making what many judged a tasteless and ill-judged joke about the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
He narrated a slide show, described as the White House election year album, making hay of the administration’s reputation for secrecy and strained relations with European allies. But it was the joke about the war in Iraq that drew attacks.
A slide showed Mr Bush in the Oval office, leaning to look under a piece of furniture. “Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere,” he told the audience, drawing applause.
Another slide showed him peering into another part of the office, “Nope, no weapons over there,” he said, laughing. “Maybe under here,” he said, as a third slide was shown.
HA … Ha … ha… Lord, what an ignorant yokel we have for President…
Hey Dubya, try laughing at this –
“Be afraid, be very afraid. Government warnings about our vulnerability to terrorism underline how badly its war on terror is going”
