There must be something about the Orient that dis-orients the Bushes.

On January 8th 1992 GHW Bush yaks in the lap of Japanese Prime Minister Miyazawa Kiichi, and then faints during a state function in Tokyo. An incident which inspired the Japanese Slang Verb 'bushusuru' which literally translated is 'Bushing it'.

In a visit to Beijing
President George Bush worshipped at a state-run "patriotic" church yesterday in an appeal for China to grant greater religious and political freedom to its citizens.

But reflecting the White House's policy of cautious engagement, Mr Bush's lectures about human rights were mixed with entreaties to his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, for greater economic cooperation. Apparently tired after trips to Japan and South Korea, Mr Bush was on mixed form. At one point, he attempted to dodge a reporter's question about his seeming exhaustion by trying to walk out through double doors that turned out to be locked. "I was trying to escape. Obviously, it didn't work," he quipped. An aide pointed him towards the correct door.

Ok so GWB didn't bushusuru, but this isn't helping their perception in that part of the globe... GWB my man, time to regroup back at the ole ranch.

Now that is pretty damn funny. C'mon, he handled it well and humorously. Handled about as well as can be anyhow. lol

Uber, I agree!

Josh, I won't be online much for the next week or two. I just wanted to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
