Bush: 'We're kicking ass' in Iraq
Overheard in Australia, Bush tells minister 'we're kicking ass' in Iraq
John Byrne
Published: Wednesday September 5, 2007

Things are going well in Iraq, according to President George W. Bush.

Upon his arrival in Sydney Wednesday, Deputy Australian Prime Minister Mark Vaile "inquired politely" about his stopover in the war-torn country.

"We're kicking ass," Bush said.

"Apart from his introductory remarks, Howard never spoke during the press conference," the paper added. "It was the George W. Bush show."

4. He really is like a child.
It is as if the development of his maturity stopped at age 10.

5. Amazing
"Apart from his introductory remarks, Howard never spoke during the press conference," the paper added. "It was the George W. Bush show."

I'd imagine Howard never spoke because of a severe sprain to his jaw caused by a too rapid drop, received when he heard * make that asinine statement.

21. We are actually lucky the entire economy hasn't collapsed with
leaders like this. Guess they ain't done yet.

7. Just whose ass are we kicking here?
As far as anyone can tell, our presence in Iraq has done waaaaaay more damage to innocent civilians and US soldiers than it has to that loose collective the President casually refers to as "bad guys."

Are we kicking our OWN asses? Maybe what Bush MEANT was "We're kicking ourselves in the ass right now." At least, that's what most of the country does when reading about stupid, stupid press conferences like this one...

10. Really now, after almost 5 years, WHO is getting their asses kicked?
That's right, US! By ragtag groups of fighters, and by the stubborn population who refuses to submit to our dominance. We're a superpower, supposedly the mightiest military in the world, we own their damn army and police, and we STILL can't get control of the country! Unbe-fucking-lievable.

18. Yeah, a swift kick to the Republican Party, and not to the back side either!
The Rs are on the floor, curled up in pain.

Well, the Rs nominated their boy, they cheated in Florida, and they had five of nine judges.

So there you have it. You decide who to blame! All of the above gets my vote.

19. Leave it to the GOP to target that anatomical part - instead of hearts or minds.

20. Look, folks. Iraqis are dying. The "enemy" in Iraq is 98% Iraqi.
Therefore, we're winning. Not hard to understand.
