The kind of language he understands

You know, I think George Bush’s reaction to having shoes thrown at him was probably the finest moment of his presidency. He was quick, calm and cheery.

Watch it here.

Compare it with his agonising attempt to answer a question about what his biggest mistake has been and what lesson’s he’s learned. That was in 2004. And let’s not forget his educational response to the news of major terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

But flying shoes – well, he’s the man. Can you imagine Barack Obama handling that even a tenth as well? To Mount Rushmore, and don’t spare the chisels!
