13. What a dirt bag. It's the oldest trick in the book...
...to attribute a quote to someone else so that you get the advantage of it without any of the fallout it might cause. Bush is saying, Hey, I'm just the messenger, here, so don't shoot ME, okay, folks?

And our boy in the White House takes it even one step further by associating this Charlie Gaines with Jesse Jackson, a man the right wing loves to hate. So, while it may be an odious, if true, quote, his audience (which, no matter who he's actually speaking to, is always the fundie bigots) has been informed of the less than "white, right, and outta sight" source from whence it came.

I repeat: what a dirt bag.
