    Bush would have probably stopped in the middle of it and politely told the guy playing the music "Dude...I dont really think it's appropriate that you play "My Country Tis of Thee" right now...but later...k?"

    Whats wrong with..."man...what was I thinking...of COURSE I know its 2010...sheesh" or 'Hey...I got the 25 and May part right...so...2 out of 3..." or..."yeah...that was kinda goofy...I usually let Michelle handle all the numbers and stuff..."
    And maybe he was just having a bad day. But why should any of us presume to tell anyone else how they should handle a truly embarrassing, international moment?

    The hacks cut both ways. Thats for sure.

    I always smile at least a little when people suggest someone who has reached the status of Governor or President is a moron. I ESPECIALLY smile about it when most of those folks think that about the governor or president ( and in the case of our last few presidents, people who have advanced degrees from prestigous universities) and post their comments from a computer after a hard days work at a job with their name on a tag on their shirt.

    Not 'presuming' to tell him what to do...but I will laugh at his FU...just like I did at Bush. Its a lot easier to laugh WITH someone than laugh AT someone, especially when that someone is actually laughing and not rigid from a broomstick shoved up his or her own ass.

    Post #92 was a Red vs. Blue reference that described what I think about this thread perfectly. My statement was a paraphrase of the clip in my post. I guess I'm the only Halo or Red vs. Blue fan on the board.

    No worries. I'll use a less obscure rip next time

    That bit at the end was a bit vulgar and probably unnecessary. Embarrassment has a lot of faces, especially when you're at a high formal function.

    Yeah...good point-truly. Sometimes I can be a bit of an ass myself.
