Oops Bush does it again….

Posted in bush, dumb, funny, US on September 24, 2007 by enblithe

US President George W Bush has done it again. This time the presidential faux pas claims the apostle of non-violence, Nelson Mandela.

The president’s latest faux pas took place as he tried to draw a link between the revered former South African leader and the sectarian violence in Iraq. And in true Bush style he made Nelson Mandela a victim of Saddam Hussein’s brutality.

President Bush is known for making gaffes. Earlier this year he mixed up Austria with Australia in a speech in Sydney. Another Bush gaffe took place when his unstatesmanlike “Yo, Blair” greeting to Tony Blair at the G8 summit in St Petersburg made news last year.

After this startling comment made by the American President, the South African authorities were besieged with calls. Many people feared the death of the country’s first black president and Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Soon after reports of his demise were highly exaggerated, Achmat Dangor, the CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation said, “It’s out there. All we can do is reassure people, especially South Africans, that President Mandela is alive”.

Terrorism & Bush

“The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq are the ones who attacked us on Sept. 11,” Bush said.

The president was responding to a question from NBC correspondent David Gregory, who asked why Americans shouldn’t believe he is “stubborn or in denial.” Gregory was referencing a report in Thursday’s Washington Post that indicated CIA Director Michael Hayden saw as “irreversible” the lack of progress in Iraq.
