Bush's WMD Joke

I heard it last night... only caught a glimpse, but if my glipse was correct, Bush was commenting on a photo of him looking under something in the Oval office, captioning it with something to the effect: "Are there any WMDs in there?" or something like this.

I was offended. How could he think that is funny when so many of our soldiers and so many Iraqi lives have been lost looking for WMDs that have not been proven to exist?

Really tacky... beyond tacky. Heartless.

This is from my brother, via email this morning.

Hear that joke at the White House media dinner where Bush looked under a couch and said "Are there WMDs in there?"

This site makes that joke not seem so funny...

Why would ANYONE think that was funny? I wonder if anyone laughed accept politely?

Strange how quiet my ultra conservative friends get at times like this.

Now you know why you inherited "the DEMOCRAT" RAH from mom 0 mom...lol. Was there a "I am George Bush, and I approve of this message?" before hand? I find nothing humorous, as I am sure the weeping parents have realised, their president belongs back home on the ranch...

There was laughter... the crowd was, apparently, 1500 or so journalists, I believe.

Arguably, the joke was "appropriate" for THAT audience. The error was that it was absolutely inappropriate for the entire country.

I have to believe that he had no knowledge that it was going to be broadcast and/or taped (HARD TO BELIEVE). I imagine that this kind of joke WOULD get a chuckle from reporters who were so hard pressed to get an answer to that question.

But, when broadcast to the world, he looks like an insensitive buffoon.

What REALLY gets my goat is that I haven't heard any conservative pundits saying anything negative. Could you imagine the backlash if Clinton said these remarks under the same circumstances (or any Democrat/liberal for that matter)?

I confronted my rabid conservative friend and was told..."Don't worry Bush will do just fine!" My gawd poor ole Clinton would have been tarred and feathered at this point. These aren't stupid people....It just boggles my mind at their thinking. All reason goes right out the window.

Simply because Politicians are given a label, I.E. Democrat, Republican,does in NO WAY guarantee us wisdom, or the ability to hold office.

BLINDLY supporting a "political label" is LUDICROUS ., the two parties have produced numerous men of proven greatness, e.g. Lincoln, Kennedy, and most of all F.D.R.

The present holder, "GEE-Doubleyer" is a "Buffoon",his command of the English language would have prevented him from transferring from a British Primary, (Elementary) school, to the next level.

As for his "insensitivity", he never saw, or heard a bullet nor "enemy" projectile, fired in his direction, (National Guard/non service), SAME THING, (Circa. 1960s/70s), so to make light of this, SHAME ON HIM.



His predessessor, Clinton, was a "Buffoon" on a different level,
his very able "Oxford educated" brain transferred , over his presidential tenure, to his "Presidential" Groin., not that, that was "grounds for Impeachment", however lying under oath IS, "Ala Tricky Dicky"(Nixon)., and Yes YOU TOO "Bill".

So we have Two "Buffoons" in a row, Where do we go from here ??

"God Bless America".
