Bush: Working Three Jobs "Uniquely American "
Anyone seen this yet?

http://hammeroftruth.com/2005/02/09/bush-working-three-... /


Last Friday when promoting social security reform with 'regular' citizens in Omaha, Nebraska, President Bush walked into an awkward unscripted moment in which he stated that carrying three jobs at a time is 'uniquely American.'


MS. MORNIN: Thats good, because I work three jobs and I feel like I contribute.

THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?

MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isnt it? I mean, that is fantastic that youre doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)

3. That's not fantastic!
That sucks! I don't think the guy's point was, "wow, I'm a great American! and I'm really happy to be helping the economy." What the hell would he have said if the guys said, "You're motorcade ran over my dog."

7. Ironic.
Under the Bush administration, it is "uniquely American" for the average person to work three jobs if they hope to get by. I suppose he spoke the truth without meaning to. :D

8. Yes, I saw it, heard it, and...
was shocked and disgusted by it.

I don't expect any more from this piece of shit despoiling the Oval Office, but I would have expected at least a little public outrage.

9. If any Democrat anywhere
made a comment like that the MSM would be all over it. Bush says it and once again it only raises eyebrows here.
