Poor George Bush. At this point, he is pathetic. So much so, that I cannot help but feel badly for him. His approval rating is dismal, he will undoubtedly go down as one of the worst presidents in history, and now it turns out all those folks in Iraq to whom he tried so hard to bring democracy aren’t all that appreciative.
I guess they aren’t fans of near civil war, constant bombs and civilian deaths over there in the Middle East… whouda thunk? Well today Bush surprised the Iraqi’s by bestowing them with a visit – I’m sure they were thrilled! One Iraqi reporter decided to show his love and appreciation by screaming:
“This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog” — and threw one of his shoes at the president, who ducked and narrowly avoided being struck. As chaos ensued, he threw his other shoe, shouting, “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.” The second shoe also narrowly missed Mr. Bush as Prime Minister Nuri Kamal Al-Malaki stuck out a hand in front of the president’s face to help shield him. NYTIMES
Hmmm… I guess the USA and Iraq have more in common than I previously thought. The same idiot has driven both countries and its’ citizens into a state of anger and despair.
