Quite a leap

We’re all so focused on the presidential campaign, I thought we would celebrate Leap Year 2008 with a little comic relief:

At George W. Bush’s press conference yesterday:

Q What's your advice to the average American who is hurting now, facing the prospect of $4-a-gallon gasoline, a lot of people facing …

THE PRESIDENT: Wait, what did you just say? You're predicting $4-a-gallon gasoline?

Q A number of analysts are predicting …

THE PRESIDENT: Oh, yeah?

Q … $4-a-gallon gasoline this spring when they reformulate.

THE PRESIDENT: That's interesting. I hadn't heard that.

Q Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. I know it's high now.

THEN, just a few minutes later, when a reporter asked Bush whether there would be restrictions on contributions to his presidential library, whether he would accept foreign money:

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I'll probably take some foreign money, but don't know yet, Ken. We just haven't -- we just announced the deal, and I, frankly, have been focused elsewhere, like ON GASOLINE PRICES and, you know, my trip to Africa, and haven't seen the fundraising strategy yet. So, the answer to your question, really, I can't answer your question well.

OK. It would be funny if it weren’t so darn serious.

Frodo could not help but remember his Old Man standing there in a grocery store, looking at the scanner at the check-out line and not knowing what to do. Out-of-step, I reckon.

Ditto Frodo. When they fell out of the DUNCE tree they hit every limb on the way down. Just hope and pray it isn't contagious! Jan

That is such a George W thing. It is scarey that it's so typical. And we live with that!
