High Point of the Bush Presidency


In an interview last week with a German newspaper, George W. Bush was asked what he felt was the high point of the five years he has spent as President. He thought he had many such high points, but surprisingly enough, he chose: catching that seven and a half pound perch in a pond on his Crawford property. Yeah, that was the best. Not the unification of the world behind an America attacked. Not the installation of a new Democracy in a tyrannized nation.One fish, and not even a gamefish.This one is perhaps the most clueless recent statement from President GW Clueless, an international embarrassment. But come to think of it, Bush may have been uncharacteristically honest here.

Update : it turns out that the world's record for a freshwater perch is four pounds and something,so a seven and a half pound perch just can't be right. Either it was mistranslated or Bush meant a bass, probably a largemouth.

Hey Jim, good post, he told the truth that was his high point, he has not managed to accomplish anything else.
