Bush Beaten by a Door (No Exit Strategy)

I'm starting to feel sorry for this bastard.

A locked door thwarted his quick exit from a news conference in Beijing on Sunday, after he answered just six questions from a group of US reporters he strode confidently towards the door that was clearly not with him but against him. President Bush tugged manfully at both handles on the double doors before admitting: "I was trying to escape. Obviously, it didn't work."

He then made his way out of the backdoor. How appropriate is that? The BBC has the story here with the added bonus of video. Go watch, go laugh and then remember he is the most powerful man in the world.

On a personal note, this week brings a couple of days teaching little people about how you shouldn't be mean to others and the most important audition of my life on Thursday. Be more of that later...


  1. Oh, don't feel sorry for him...He's a walking cluster F%&#.

  2. hooray. If he can't work a door there is pretty much no chance of him being able to do something complicated. (like a key & a button combination that launches a pre-emptive strike).

  3. We should all start calling him Backdoor Bush. Since he's been in office we're all taking it up the ass.

  4. I loved this story when I saw it on the news. I laughed, then quickly felt embarrassed - not for him, but for myself. After all, he is the President of my country and given his ongoing mispronunciations, foibles, and public humiliation, it's really no laughing matter. It's quite sad, really.

    But it still is fun to watch.

  5. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts for my son and his wife. Their deployment to Iraq, especially with the holidays upon us is tough. Its kind comments from people such as yourself who help to make my load a little lighter. Happy Holidays!

  6. Well he isn't the most powerful man in the world, but the brains behind him are.

    That man is a complete embarassment. We would've done better if we'd elected The 3 Stooges for co-presidency. At least they'd be entertaining.

  7. "I'm starting to feel sorry for this bastard."

    Funny, that is what I thought when I saw your performance in Bouncers.

  8. EEEK. I have a friend named Dan. I know you prefer to be called Daniel. Mea Culpa.

  9. Hey anonymous coward! If you want me to take your bullshit seriously put a name to yourself and an email.

    Put up or shut up chicken.

    And Saur, Dan is fine.

  10. i think bush is funnier than the stooges would be. have you ever seen him walk up to a podium for five minutes? instead of trying to portray confidence he tries to show that he's just a good old-fashioned regular joe but that's what's so absurd and funyy when he's forced to act like a king/powerful leader

  11. towards the door that was clearly not with him but against him.
