Oh yes, <shakes head> he did.
In a press conference on Thursday, President Bush was defending the administration’s Iraq policy when he blundered once again:
“…Now where’s Mandela? Well, Mandela is dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.”
Then he goes on saying some kind of confusing and rambling statement about Saddam being a tyrant and something about hard work. By the way, I love how he talks about getting a “B” in Econ 101 but an “A” in keeping taxes low and being “fisky” responsible with the peoples’ money. Ah jeez…. Is he hitting the sauce again???
“Connie is the Ph.D. and I’m the “C” student.”
He also replies to a question about MoveOn.org and their statements about General Petraeus. He calls their insinuations “disgusting.” I can agree with him on this one.
As for Mandela, the Mandela Foundation released a statement shortly after that Nelson Mandela is indeed still alive.
Do you ever just sit back and wonder what other countries think of our leader? As I quote Bart Simpson, “Aye carumba.”
I’m off to go pop some aspirin after this one.
