4. He's having a flashback...
...to when Mommie was putting a tie on him and got it just a tad too tight. :scared:

What kind of flowers are those anyway? They look like a cross between a dandelion and a thistle.

No offense meant, just an observation. I freely and fully admit my abysmal ignorance of Hawaiian flora. :hi:

18. Not sure,
but judging by the other red & orange leis, these are exceptionally special, rare and well-made. Pickle's long lei is very special. Of course, she is wearing it wrong. It should not be resting on the back of her neck, but rather half front/half back. But these clods never have an aide to advise them on cultural courtesy (or never listen to them).

Not to metion an ordinary gentleman bends slightly to accept a lei to be placed, rather than flailing arms about and wincing.

34. His body language is always off base.
If I were his height, I would have bent forward and stood still. What is all that flailing about about?

37. Well, there's the problem right there...
"Not to metion an ordinary gentleman bends slightly to accept a lei to be placed, rather than flailing arms about and wincing."
The operative word being 'gentleman'.

'George W. Bush' and 'gentleman' in the same sentence don't fit... unless there's some kind of negative modifier in there.

She has worn gaudy colors galore in the past, I think a grey on grey outfit is a little odd for paradise :)

17. What a strange reaction
coming from a president who is notorious for inappropriately touching other people. The famous neck rub, rubbing bald men's heads, and several other instances come to mind. He really is a coward, isn't he?

49. several years ago, there was a photo of him wincing ...
... when he was being hugged by a young sailor at the Annapolis graduation. Bush looked angry and terrified (sure, he can strut in front of a backdrop of servicepeople, or rub their heads, but this really seemed to repel him). I haven't been able to find a picture online -- but I thought it was interesting that the sailor was African-American.

27. You do have to wonder why the White House communications office requested beige leis.
What's even the point of going to Hawaii if they don't drape big assed ugly pink flowers around your neck?

38. Someone should have given him a lei hala
a lei made with seeds of the pandanus (hala) tree, which, according to Hawaiian legend, is supposed to prevent the recipient from getting elected.

Wait a minute! He wasn't elected! :P

50. This Clown of a prez cannot even hit a nail with a hammer....holds the hammer like a gurly mon
and takes 16 whacks on an 8 penny common nail and still leaves the nail half way out....he is a joke.

The SS guys banned him from the chain saw...too dangerous for THEM

They let him use the machette because its all dulled out and can't cut anything...its photo ops for Gods sake

Yeah, dats was his guts hanging out on the Lincoln when he landed 2 years ago...He likes to play act out his fantasies...
