    Oh boy…

    by Sunny on 14th September, 2007 at 4:08 pm    

    Mr Bush flew to Australia via Iraq, and during his keynote speech to businessmen in Sydney he behaved like a man in the throes of jet lag. Many will sympathise with his mispronunciation of the South-East Asian militant organisation Jemaah Islamiyah, and his struggle with the name of the Burmese democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi. It was forgivable when he walked the wrong way off the stage and had to be guided by John Howard, the Australian Prime Minister.

    But when he referred gratefully to Mr Howard’s forces in Iraq as “Austrian troops”, he had perhaps used up his credit. The worst mistake was made in the third sentence of his speech. “Thank you for being such a fine host for the Opec summit,” he said, confusing the 12-member Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries with the 21-member Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation forum. “Apec summit,” he said quickly in correction. “He [Mr Howard] invited me to Opec next year.” But that wasn’t true either.

      So, will we see a US Pres crack under pressure?

      I know its horrible how we’ve got here BUT (Silver lining and all that) this could be great street theartre?

      Scenario: Bush cracks and has to resign. Pres Cheney.
      Cheney impeached for trying to attack Iran.

      Pres Pelosi…..!!!

      Come On!!! (In my best Human Traffic stylee!)

      Hey, Opec, Apec. What’s in a vowel? Everyone is going to assume George is dumb as a fence-post anyway.

      Personally, I don’t think he is. He is probably slightly above average intelligence, although given the company he keeps I would guess he is often the dumbest guy in the room.

      He’s an eeejet — tell us something we don’t know.
      Roll on January 2009.
