By the time you see this, I’m sure it will be all over the news – but I can’t not post this.
In a sign of lingering anger over the war that will define the Republican president’s foreign policy legacy, an Iraqi journalist shouted in Arabic “this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog,” and hurled his shoes at Bush during a news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
Well they’re throwing something, just not flowers… or at his feet, from the look of it (unless the dude’s got really bad aim). Does the man get half credit? Maybe one third?
If Bush wanted to write a better legacy for himself, he probably should have stayed home. I think this photo sums it up beautifully. Is there any chance it could be used as his official White House portrait?
Yeah, I know. It’s not nice to kick a guy when he’s down… or in this case bent over.
Loved the video, didn’t read the translation. Until now. Updating my Facebook status accordingly.
