Deep Thoughts

At a recent stop, the President of the United States had this to say:
You know, I just recently came off a trip to the Far East. By the way, representing the United States of America around the world is one of the great experiences of the presidency. And it struck me that I was in a region of the world where there -- where wars had started.
Deep thoughts, there. Hey, man, have you ever looked at your hands? I mean really looked at them?

Seriously, it's nice to see the president getting out there and meeting the global community that hates him.

If only he'd had a chance to visit the Far East earlier, as a representative of the United States of America. He might have even been able to witness one of those wars himself! Too bad that the fickle finger of fate needed him to keep Texas safe from the Viet Cong.

(Hat tip to Atrios, who had the stomach to reprint even more of this brilliant address.)

Believe me, man, I know. I watched Hamburger Hill like three times. I was IN THE SHIT.

mmm. hamburger.

I wonder if it also struck him that he was in a part of the world where his brother had contracted venereal diseases.

He was probably disappointed that hot women didn't appear at his door wanting to have sex. Probably blamed the Secret Service.

What the fuck is he even talking about? WWII? Is that where it started? I think he flew past that place that got us involved about halfway there...

And what is his point anyway? What region of the world hasn't been where some war started at one time or another? He divides his time between two places (DC and TX) that have some pretty bloody soil.

And that's not even counting the fact that he sits at a desk where he personally started two wars.

What a goddamned maroon.
