I hate it when Stuttering George goes out of the country and embarrasses us:
Bush’s visit to the Canadian capital was intended to mend relations frayed by the war in Iraq. But as antiwar demonstrators clashed with riot police outside Parliament, Bush replied with defiance when asked at a news conference whether he was responsible for a rift between Canada and the United States.
“We just had a poll in our country where people decided that the foreign policy of the Bush administration ought to stay in place for four more years, and it’s a foreign policy that works with our neighbors,” he said.
Except that our “neighbors” completely disagree with it and will contribute nothing.
The White House had said in advance that it expected no diplomatic breakthroughs on the two-day trip, which will take Bush to Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Wednesday to thank residents for accepting U.S. aircraft stranded after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
If we wanted a “diplomatic breakthrough” we would have sent a diplomat…if we had one.
This just kind of makes you want to duck your head and tell people that you don’t know who that guy is and you’ve never seen him before…
