Bush Zinger of the Month

• Views: 836

Oh, man. If you’re a whining duplicitous EUroweenie, this has gotta sting.

Bush said even a decision by countries such as France and Germany to forgive Iraqi debt would not enable them to compete for the contracts in Iraq. And he was derisive when asked about German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s remark that “international law must apply here,” saying: “International law? I better call my lawyer; he didn’t bring that up to me.”

UPDATE: The Washington Post is not amused:

When told yesterday that Mr. Schroeder believed Mr. Bush’s contract decision might violate international law, the president responded with a sarcastic gibe: “International law? I better call my lawyer.” Like other puerile taunts delivered by administration officials, the president’s words will merely serve to further erode support for his policies in countries that historically have stood with the United States.

I can see already that the bastions of correct opinion (i.e. The New York Times, The Washington Post) are going to have twitching fits over this one. But I predict it’s going to play very well with most Americans.
