Picture of the day – Presidential potty break
This is not a joke. Actual note caught by Reuters photographer.
[UPDATE: Reuters confirms this is the real deal. The Freepi see conspiracies…]
The caption: “U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s vision of freedom from want, persecution and war.

I’m still thinking about how Condi was going to assist him on that front.
Feel free to add your own “very special caption.”
I’m sorry, but I had to see if the Freepers were going to react to this. I was not disappointed.
“Well it’s a wonder he needed a bathroom break. With all of the bullshiite going on in the UN, it’s enough to make anyone puke.”
“Those Reuters reporters never use toilets. They just pack it in~!”
“Not only a poor editorial choice, but the photo is deceptive on top of that. Perfect MSM B.S. storm”
“Explains why they’re always full of it.”
“That memo will surface out of Durbin’s pocket tomorrow in the Roberts hearing.”
“Seriously though why does rueter think this is news worthy?”
“Low-life media. Was it REALLY necessary to publish that, or was it published simply to make Bush look weak or dumb? Is that picture ANYWHERE near approaching something newsworthy? No, of course not, but we know the MSM’s agenda. Pathetic.”
“The President pees like the rest of us…I’m SHOCKED.”
“In the past, this kind of thing would be considered bad form. But it’s Bush, so decency is out the window.”
“I would have relived myself on the carpet as the smell would have been covered by the background stench.”
“I’m curious who they let in there with cameras that can zoom that close.”
“Is this like that secret prompting device he wore during the 2004 debates?”
“For all we know…it could be “code” to Condi for wanting to signal something to her like ‘they’re full of …” and that’s their code cause he couldn’t write what he really wanted to share with her.”
“IF THIS IS BUSH– could he be writing a reply to someone who was asking HIM for a break?”
“1) Why is this “news?”, 2) Should I feel concerned that a photographer can get a photo of what the President is writing to his Sec of State? Did we doge a bullet, in that it could have been something sensitive?”
“That picture and note is a phoney. He would have never written that many words. He would have just said; “Gotta Pee” or “Gotta Poop””
“Pardon me while I whip this out”
