Vincente Fox Trashes bushboy
Everyone's getting in on it.

Former Mexico pres. calls Bush 'cockiest guy I've ever met'
Fox and Bush, pictured in 2006, appeared to enjoy a warm relationship.
WASHINGTON (CNN) The two leaders shared a border for six years, but former Mexico President Vicente Fox gives a tough assessment on President Bush in a new book out next month, according to U.S. News and World Report.

In "Revolution of Hope," set to hit book stores October 4, Fox calls Bush "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life," and is sharply critical of the president's Iraq policy and his immigration stance, according to the magazine.

Though he describes warm relations with Bush, Fox in the book also calls the president's Spanish skills "grade-school" level and says, "I can't honestly say that I had ever seen George W. Bush getting to the White House."

4. yep..thats why the delivery of Bourbon to the WHouse has been
doubled this week.
Spose we're paying for THAT too.
And of course the drunkard is swiggin down the finest & most expensive there is. By this time in his drunk-years, would he really know the difference if his pricey booze was replaced with a bottle of Gold Bell?

3. That is because Fox did not let Bush stare into his heart and get a gut feeling like Putin...

5. We Canadians hear the same bullshit about Bush & Harper being such good buddies!
The right wing propoganda machine is trying to make us think that Canada will get along much better with the U.S.A. government as long as we keep Conservative P.M. Harper in power. This is a joke. There have been several world leader get togethers since we elected Harper and never once have I seen Bush anywhere near Harper at these affairs. You would kind of expect that the two North American neighbours would be sort of together or at least in proximity of each other, but Bush looks like he's avoiding Harper like the plague at these affairs. One (Bush) is a spoiled frat boy and the other (Harper) is a condescending elitist. They have nothing in common personally.
As far as getting better results in our dealings with the American government, they do what they please no matter who they are dealing with.

6. Cali, Fox called Bush a Pendejo. That means asshole, not cocky
The US press is very much misreporting this statement.

Fox called Bush a Pendejo:

Wikipedia says "Pendejo is etymologically related to the Latin pectiniculus, meaning "pubic hair" or "anal hair". It may be translated as "asshole" in many situations, though it carries an extra implication of rank and willful incompetence. The less extreme version, which is used in most Spanish speaking countries translates more or less as "jackass". The term however, has very high offensive connotations in Cuba and Puerto Rico.

In Mexico, Central and Northern South America, pendejo refers to a stupid person, synonymous with idiota or dumbass, although it is a much stronger word in Mexico and Central America than it is in Panama. . ."


The urban dictionary says
* pendejo is a spanish slang word for idiot,stupid or dumass
* Pendejo is a single pubic hair. In Mexicos slang it is used as an insult like idiot or fool, but in Perus slang it used to describe a smart guy with few or no scruples.
*Spanish slang for "asshole"
