George Bush has cat-like reflexes

December 14th, 2008 // 140 Comments

President George Bush had shoes thrown at him during a press conference in Baghdad yesterday. An Iraqi journalist, who surprisingly didn’t get his ass shot, whipped not one but BOTH of his shoes at the president after calling him a “dog.” Personal feelings of Bush aside, you gotta admit the bastard is quick which will apparently come in handy considering the Secret Service are lame-ducking it themselves. To emphasize my point, check out the agent who hops up to the stage after the attack then acts like he’s on top of things: “No, Mr. President, I wasn’t just playing GameBoy. Hey, there’s shoes back here…”

Thanks to Joel. You weren’t fucking kidding me.

    Too bad he missed :(

    We would be out of Iraq by now if Bush had a “sole.”

    Was that Anderson Cooper?

    God. I would have not been able to contain my laughter if someone had thrown shoes at me, and then i ducked them, and watched someone epic fail and get the shit tackled out of them afterwords.

    Some people need to calm down a bit.

    Thats a hell of an insult in the world of Islam !!

    Wonder if he’s still breathing, the attacker, no Bush :p

    Despise the President, but this lifts the spirits of some Americans…Idk why, don’t ask. But seeing him duck and laugh it off and not care is kinda like “Oh, he’s kinda like us” or some shit. All the shit that fucker has faced and he’s still in high hopes, he just doesn’t give a fuck what anyone thinks besides him. If he fucks the country up in the process, then so be it.

    BODYGUARD: Sir, I’ll take a bullet for you, but I draw the line at shoes.

  9. By George! He was simply too agile for his age! In politics you definitely need such sharp minds!

  10. Mat

    Man, what poor aim. He was only a few feet away and missed TWICE.

    What they’re not reporting is the droves of other Iraqi “reporters” who were profusely thanking President Bush for freeing Iraq from the terrorizing reign of Sadaam Hussein. Iraq had no “free press” before President Bush, and the reporter who threw the shoes at Bush should also be thanking him, for he now has the freedom to throw shoes. Where as before if he had thrown something at Hussein, he would have been dipped in acid and fed through a paper shredder by now. Whatever you say about Bush, we’ve been safe here in the US by bringing the war to the terrorists since 9/11.

  12. You know where the coldest place on earth is? Between Barbara Bush’s legs!
    I mean this woman cannot be proud of this guy every night!

  13. Yawn.......

    I think I’m going to go back to bed…………..

  14. F-Obama

    I hope they string that sand nigger up like they do to us. Lets cut his head off on TV. You fags forget what they do to us? F them. That fucker needs to get killed “accidentally” That fuck would have been killed immediately if Sadam were there and that douche will get a trial now. Stupid Americans don’t understand the rights we have and spread around the globe and obviously by some of the comments here, you don’t either.
    You may not like GW but maybe you need to visit another country for a while and see what the rest of the world lives with. And I don’t mean go to Cancun or Toronto and watch the Opera.

  15. Pete Wentz

    Say whatever you want about Bush, but at least he’s not a pussy like the rest of the presidents.
    I would not want him as my president but i’d sure buy him a beer and get high with him at a strip club. puff puff pass G

  16. She is my favorite. Just saw her on milllionaire personals site “”"” W e a l t h y D a t e r . c o m”"”"”" last week. I am wondering what kind of relationship she is looking for on that site.Is she single again now?

    I have lived in other countries (four and counting) and the funny thing is about the people living in them — they’re proud. What I mean to say is that they are proud of their nationality and their country, as proud as Americans are of theirs. And since when were the terrorists and the fanatics supposed to be taken for the country they were living in? If that were true, America would be measured by the people who attacked the WTC. In this case, this particular reporter had been captured and tortured by Shiites and was angry with the Bush admin. for instigating it and when the announcement came that they wouldn’t be leaving for another three years, he was none too happy about it. Know something before you post something and Long Live Free Speech!

  18. Christine

    Gosh, it seems like I couldn’t wait for him to go, and now I don’t want him to leave.

  19. Becca

    I’m no fan of Bush, but that is really frightening that the secret service slowly ambles up on stage like 5 seconds after all the shit went down. Someone should have dove in front of the shoe and caught it in the head. That’s their job and I hope someone gets fired for it.

  20. Bickus Dickus is retarted

    #11, they didnt show that because it didn’t happen.

    And do you really think you are safe in the US because of Bush? Bush had a BIG part in the 9-11 attacks you genius.

    Do you really think with all of the intelligence and technology we have that Bush couldn’t find Bin Laden? It’s not that that CAN’T find him…it’s that they don’t WANT to.

  21. Mart

    hahaha! a moment where i like bush? Woah.
    He better have a cameo in DodgeBall 2.

  22. Bigheadmike

    10 years ago he would have been taken out and shot for that.
    Just the fact that he had the freedom to try something like that is a victory for the people of Iraq.
    He was probably on the Statue of Saddam smashing his shoe.

  23. Aquila

    Damn, the Daily Show is not on until January. That would be great material.

  24. I get the un-easy feeling that this will look like child’s play compared to whats thrown at the next one, president that is….

  25. Jason

    If shoes are outlawed, only outlaws will have shoes.

  26. Don’t shoo-t!

    Welcome to Gitmo Abdul…..

    You’ll love it. We have waterboarding every afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

  28. Shep

    You think the secret service is bad at protecting Bush……. Wait until Obama gets into power.

    “Sorry Mr President, He told me the gun was a lighter for his cigarettes”

  29. George Austin Bush Powers

    That really hurt! I’m gonna have a lump there, you idiot! Who throws a shoe? Honestly! You fight like a woman!

    I’m an open minded girl from US, I’m interested in exotic things, photography, outdoors and sports…I have my photos on — Tallhub. com —, I love tall guys!
    Do you love travelling and have some experience? Just find me out.

  31. It's Me Fuckers!!

    that has to be one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life! Lol, Bush so deserves it! ROFL!!

    LOL, you fucking Liberal pussies are so goddamn predictable. Bush had a BIG part in the 9-11 attacks??? yes, he planned the whole thing I’m sure. You portray the guy as the world’s biggest dumbass but he’s then capable of orchestrating an attack on his own country and no body knows about it but you apparently. What a fucking retard you are.

    And FYI, Foxnews is gonna air the praise given to Pres Bush on tonights programming.

    I wholey expected your pre-programmed liberal America hating response. Even when confronted with the absolute fact that we haven’t been attacked since 9-11, you still can’t accept it, when in fact it was the lax anti-terrorist effort by the Clinton’s that was responsible for the attacks….fucking dumbass.

  33. AB

    Yeah, he’s gonna get executed, gonna get sent to Gitmo, blah blah blah.

    Wake up, Americans. Anybody with their eyes open the past 5 years knew immediately this guy would be a hero:

    “The Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at President Bush during his farewell visit to Baghdad was hailed a hero in the Arab world today as thousands marched to demand his release.”

    Just watch. The Iraqi government will find some way to give the tiniest slap on the wrist possible, and you know they don’t even want to do that.

    Unilateral invasions based on LIES tend to be unpopular. Apparently some Americans are too dumb to grasp that simple fact even now.

    Reports from Iraq say that the person who threw the shoe was arrested and had hot cold placed into his hands. Doctors say that he will never recover full movement as his hands were cooked for several minutes. Reports also say that his first son and daughter are now missing–they will never be found.

  35. Eric

    Worst American president in modern history.

    Hands down.

    Case closed.

    The time of blustery chickenhawks like “Bickus Dickus” is over. Thank fucking god. We can finally get back to acting like rational people in the world as it actually exists, not like in “Father Knows Best” fantasies.

  38. scott

    cat-like reflexes…that was more like Neo from ‘The Matrix’!!!

  39. #33 – In 2045, you’ll be known as the crazy man in the nursing home trying to convince everyone that Bush died for our sins…

  40. dumb americans

    do you think they wanted us there in the first place

    you dumb fucks they lived their own way for centuries, it’s apart of the culture now we go in there to free them! free them of what, their identity?

    in stead of focusing on the middle east, we should focus on the home grown terrorist on wall street. those fuck heads screwed the american people worst than the 9-11 attackes.

    9-11 didn’t put our economy in the shitter those fuckers on wall street did.

    AMERICANS, dumb fucks

    lucky for that crazy sandniger Sadam’s gone… or he’d be dead by now.

    Fox News proudly broadcasts pro-government propaganda. They were recently sued in Florida for distorting facts and disseminating lies (unfortunately, they weren’t convicted). It is a miracle this guy was even in the room considering the exhaustive screening this admin. does to make sure no one who disagrees with them within ear shot.
    I just heard this story on the radio and the journalist said something like, “the first one is for the war in my country” and the second is for “all the widows and orphans and bodies” or something (anyone who feels like finding the quote… would be…less lazy than me).
    Why do you find it so offensive that anyone might criticize this admin.? Or maybe you are like this Pres., like a child dangerously in denial with the facts.

  43. Plenty of Future Material

    Its going to be hilarious watching you radicals defend the corruption headed our way for the next four years. Just look around its already started. The criminally contempt leading the blind….. Ha Ha

  44. Jeb

    Notice how Bush cowardly ducks the second shoes and let’s it hit OUR AMERICAN FLAG!!!!

  45. Gar

    Hilarious..

    Hell we got a hero now.

  46. Bigo

    When Cheney shoots, he knows he must duck… so, yeah, he gets his reflexes from that!

    BTW, the other Iraqi reporters who were there gave an apology to Bush. I don’t think this guy should go to jail but I think that he should be fired from his job because it’s an insult to journalism. Throwing shoes to Presidents or stones to raped women is freedom of expression??? Come on!

    Americans should be soo pissed of on Baghdad ..its not an offense to Bush,its an offense to America….no journalist from Baghdad should throw things in anything representing America..its one one the most powerful countrys in the world and it should be respected…..

  48. Pixie

    My only regret is that he didn’t bean Bush in the head. :) Still, it’s a fitting close to this disasterous administration.
