A lot of folks noticed Dubbya's little dig at the Democratic Party during the recent State of the Union Address in which he engaged in the childish little Republican game of refusing to call the party by its correct name, calling it instead the "Democrat" party, even as he piously wished for bipartisanship. Now the Weasel-in-Chief calls it an honest mistake:
"That was an oversight," said Bush, who frequently uses the formulation. "I mean, I'm not trying to needle. Look, I went into the hall saying we can work together, and I was very sincere about it. I didn't even know I did it."
Bush also said he "didn't mean to be putting fingernails on the board," while noting that the parties need to work together on addressing problems with the Social Security system. "I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town," the president said. "And I'm sorry it's the case, and I'll work hard to try to elevate it. So the idea that somehow I was trying to needle the Democrats, it's just -- gosh, it's probably Texas. Who knows what it is? But I'm not that good at pronouncing words anyway."
As our African-American brethren say, "Nigga, please."
You don't know why there's so much distrust? How about this, asshole:
"However they put it, the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: The terrorists win and America loses."
"Suggestions, for example, that we should withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq simply feed into that whole notion, validates the strategy of the terrorists."
Maybe one way to build trust is to apologize for slurs like that. Until then, go fuck yourself, Mr. President, and have a nice day.
