Winking at the queen, indeed.

Yes, it was painful to watch last week in the news here. They showed it in the end of the 2 different programmes I watched - you know, when they have a comic relief with something bizarre and ridiculous in the end? The queen did not like it AT ALL though.

Oh dear, faux pas city! The man is quite rough around the edges, no?<br><br>
However, how does that make it okay to call him names, I wonder, when Obama claimed that 10,000 died in the KC tornado, it was simply funny, now when Bush commits a faux pas, he's a moron? Hmm.

Because the man has been involved in serial moronic activities ("Bring 'em on", the infamous "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere" slideshow, the groping of German prime minister Merkel et al.) THAT's why.<br><br>
And rough around the edges? Please. He's old money New England Yankee and has been posing as a good ol' boy since his Phillips Academy boarding school days.

Well, because Obama just misspoke. He had meant to say that 10,000 people had been displaced. That's a big difference from winking at the Queen or groping the German PM. KWIM?

Bush has commited so many 'faux pas' that I don't think it's fair to call them that anymore - maybe 'charachter defects' or 'personality flaws' or perhaps a 'lack of consciousness' ; if we were trying to stay out of realm of name calling.

Is it possible he is just socially inept in addition to having no memory when it comes to important facts and figure? Although if that is true then how did such a person ever get elected as president <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Actually Bush misspoke as well, he said 1776 instead of 1976. Honestly I didn't see him wink at the queen - he kinda turned to look at her to see her reaction. And he didn't call her his mother he said that she just looked at me as only a mother would.

Well, so every footage shown again and again here has probably been altered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"> Bush REALLY was an embarassement, to say the least. But it is not like people were surprised - they just said "one more of his Bushisms" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Because his people cheated... disqualified voters for no reason the day of election giving them no time to re-register. Making sure there were not enough voting machines in area's that were heavily democratic..Turned people away when it was time to "close" even though they had been waiting in lines for HOURS UPON HOURS because there were not enough voting machines.... And that is just with the 2004 election. He LOST the popular vote in 2000.

This part about Bush I had me cracking up:<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">And in the pantheon of political gaffes, Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, is still the champ. He chundered into the lap of Japanese Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa during a 1992 state dinner, prompting the Japanese to coin <b>a new term for a humiliating episode of public vomiting, <i>bushusuru</i> (or, "pulling a Bush").</b></td>
