Visit to Haiti: Did Bush wipe his hand on Clinton's shirt?
In the recent Clinton/Bush visit to Haiti, Bush seems hesitant to mingle with the crowd, and appears to wipe his hand on Clinton's shirt after shaking hands. (00:47)

2. He does appear hesitant and uncomfortable. I think he just placed his hand on
Clinton's shoulder to get his attention.But he really looked liked he didn't want to be there but who knows? It was just a snippet.The crowd seemed more engaged with Clinton.They didn't pay any attention to Bush.

3. Yeah he really did
I had to watch it twice to make sure my eyes saw what they saw. Unbelievable. It's bad enough to have to wipe your hand after shaking someone's, but to wipe it on someone else's shirt. Jeez. What a shit-stain that man is.

10. Yup.
Was during the break or something. She was talking with Letterman, bent over in front of Bush. He grabbed her jacket and wiped his glasses off on them.



He's a total class act, eh?

5. he looks like he doesn't want to be there throughout the whole video
why the fuck did he go at all. look at the huge difference between Clinton and the dumbass . someone who didn't know would never guess that thing could have ever been President but it was.

14. Yea, he looked a bit put-out, didn't he? Probably wondered why people were
flocking over to Clinton.

Anyway, he did wipe his hand on Clinton's shirt. That's something a little kid would do, not an educated, grown elder, and a statesman wannabe/pretendabe

8. I wonder if he got hold of some coke?
He does'nt look so boozy to me this time - he usually has that stupid smirk when he's been sneaking vodka.

20. I'm guessing since leaving office

11. First he tries to shake his hand in the air to
remove the sweat he received from the Haitian
then sees Bill shirt and wipes his hand down his shirt from his shoulder to his forearm
and passes it off as a gesture.

Remember Katrina.... never forget.

23. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt before I saw the video
but after watching it...

Yeah. He did.


What a no-class asshole. Maybe he should think about carrying a handkerchief or something for wiping his hands.

27. Big Dawg is engaged, even after just having surgery!
Big Dawg is always engaged in whatever he's doing. He's connected, taking part.

Bush is just there for the press. It's very obvious to anyone who bothers to notice.

Glad that Big Dawg is on our side.

29. Ha, I told someone on another forum he wiped his glasses on a
woman's jacket on Letterman and was called a liar, that it was just part of the show.

He has no shame.
