So Dubya came up with a stupid and ridiculous comment about his finest moment in office. Fine, that is just dumb. I can’t stop shaking my head thinking about how far he shoved his foot in his mouth.
But this post on Kos tops it. What a moronic and idiotic comment.
“Jesus. H. Christ. Is Bush even capable of telling the truth?
Bush says the highlight of his presidential career was catching a 7.5 pound perch in his lake. Except that…
The only problem is that the world’s record for the largest freshwater perch caught is 4 pounds 3 ounces.
So Bush either doubled the world record, and didn’t report it, or he’s a liar.”
Laughing boy, is this the best that you can come up with. You try to skewer the president because of a fish tale. There are so many substantive remarks that could be made and all you can do is accuse him of lying about a fucking fish. Geez, give me a break.
If I dropped a dozen fish in your lap could you correctly identify them and if not, would that mean that your foreign policy sucked or should I say that your domestic policy is completely ineffective.
It is no wonder that we spend more time fighting about partisan politics. What a sad commentary.

The real cause for criticism is Bush’s priorities. It plays right into the image of a guy who hates to interrupt his vacation for the sake of his responsibilities as President.
Wouldn’t it be nice if he could say that his proudest moment was the tens of thousands of lives he saved in New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina hit?
But I forgot â€” he was on vacation that week. Maybe that’s when he caught the fish he’s bragging about.

Plus the article quotes him as having caught a “large-mouth bass” not a perch.
