Did he really say that? The Iraqi journalist who flung his shoes at the US President? May be he said
Here’s your Christmas Gift – you’re hot.
Considering the recession – he might have been worried that the poor President Bush who’s just lost his job may not be able to afford a good pair of shoes. So he was spreading Christmas cheer.
What impressed me was the agility with which Bush ducked the shoes. Oh boy, he gave me an insight into his domestic life. He is such a bumbler …. the Missus must be throwing things at him daily. And then, if you watch his expression clearly, he smirked!!! It was as though he said “You missed Stoopid!!!”
The famous American Security that surrounded the President took its own sweet time getting into the act. Someone should have told them – Hey, its not the guy’s wife throwing cutlery at him, this is a foreign country and its a diplomatic incident …. accident … whatever
The fallout of the incident :-
Bush can actually forge a career based on his smirky quick reflexes
The Iraqi gave him the shoe, the Americans gave him the boot. These commonalities will help both countries forge stronger cultural ties in years to come.
Terrorists will be complaining to TERROR GOD why the inspiration to put grenades in shoes to be flung at Presidents was not bestowed on them
The manufacturers of that brand of size 10 shoes will be thinking of the catchline to advertise their product with.
The Iraqi journalist will have sharp shooters ring him up and give him helpful tips on how to not miss the next time.
As for me …. the footage made my day LOL. Tcha!!! Why’d he miss?
