You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

"I'm thrilled that Speaker Denny Hastert is here, and Leader Bill Frist. ... We got a fabulous Speaker and leadership team in the United States House of Representatives and a great leader in Bill Frist in the United States Senate. ... If you want your taxes low, keep Denny Hastert and Bill Frist as leaders of the House and the Senate. ... I want to thank you for helping make sure that Denny Hastert and Bill Frist remain in their positions in the Senate and the House."

-- President Bush, speaking in Washington, June 19

One problem: Frist is retiring from the Senate in November.

Maybe we're already seeing the effects of the planned departure of top Bush aide and speechwriter Michael Gerson.

Senior White House Advisor Karl Rove called Gerson a "once-in-a-generation" aide -- if that's true, expect more "once-in-a-generation" gaffes from Bush.

shows Bush doesn't really care about anyone but himself

I really think he looks on Congress with disdain.

Is "Once-In-A-Lifetime Gaffe from Bush" an oxymoron?

hard to believe it's not a secret.

"I'm running for president, Mr. President."

"Huh? I'm the president. Karl? Come here."

"Yes sir."

"I'm the president, right?"

"Yes sir."

"See, Bill. I'm the president. You can't run for something I am."

OMFG, he really is that stupid without someone feeding him everything word for word. Now we have proof that it really is true.

Bush is just not interested in his actual job. He loves playing dictator, but the role of "president" simply doesn't interest him. He's never up on current events and he doesn't even seem to understand how the government is supposed to work.

That's not a GAFFE... it's a f*cking LIE!

And he knew that when he said it.

Thanks for posting. But let add a unrelated whine - here is another intriguing website with a black backgkround. Very hard to read. Very hard on the eyes.

? Taxes low?

These are Bushbots who have led us to $9 trillion debt and counting.

"Once in a lifetime"? More like "every hour on the hour"!!!

When he's not getting his obligatory 8 hours of sleep/passed-out time, of course...
