Bush’s UN Bathroom Break
If these pictures weren't posted on Yahoo! News, I would find it very hard to believe them to be real. But there they are, credited to Reuters photographer Rick Wilking, and accompanied by this caption:

U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005.

I suppose even Presidents need to go to the bathroom.

Well, Tom, if you'd been paying attention all this time, you'd know it isn't hard to find W's flaws.

Has anyone else noticed that the President ended a direct statement with a question mark? Or is it really a question? I think he's coming up with an excuse for the reason he didn't do something else, and wants to see if the excuse meets with Condi's approval.

As in, "How about if I say, 'I need to go to the bathroom?' Yeah, maybe that will fool them."

Poor Mr. Bush, lol I feel so bad for him, he's got Green Day whining about him left and right, people getting close-up pictures of him writing on a piece of paper without him noticing it... tsk tsk tsk, if he's president he was obviously good enough to get elected crima nittley

of course it's two different people writing the note.. Look at the capital I's... And it's not even someone asking for permission. It seems to me like they were checking when a good time would be to head out... is it really that big of a deal?

what a f'ing moron.

I'm looking at the capital I's, and they look no different than how I write my I's. Oh are we to assume two people wrote it because not one I is an exact clone of the other???? When did all these morons become experts in this field of matching handwriting?

One more thing, the picture is real, and it was him asking Condi...

Why??????


Because he hasn't really attended a UN meeting that lasted that long, and so he wanted to ask someone with experience, if it was possible to go take a piss without offending 130 countries taking part in a meeting...

He can't just get up and go piss because he feels like it or because he's the Prez. He has to ask, because he is before the international community, and doesn't want to make an ass out of himself anymore than he does already.


I mean imagine, if he just got up and left to go piss during the middle of a speech given by say China or something... Can you imagine how they'd feel later on?? They'd probably wanna kick our butt or something.


USE YOUR DAMN HEADS, HE ASKED BECAUSE HE NEEDED TO KNOW IF HE COULD GET UP IN THE MIDDLE OF A MEETING, OR IF HE HAS TO RAISE HIS HAND...


Besides, why are you geeks about to have orgasms over this note in which he's just trying to make sure he doesn't offend the other UN members in attendance?? C'mon, out of all his bullshit, you guys are going to act like he's Condi's bitch??? Seriously, we all know Rove is the man, so give it up.



Remember, he asked, because he didn't want to offend other people by just getting up and leaving as if he were fed up with the meeting..


Next time you bush haters that jumped on the bandwagon try to find something to scrutinize, why not ask what goes on @ Bohemian Grove or something..

Well, I am a Bushhater, if you want to call it that. But as I said before, it could offend a country if he just went out. The irresponsible (and bushlike) thing to do would be to just stand and walk out, offending a more or less friendly country and costing millions of dollars if not lives.

The I's standing alone are different from the I in 'is' but is that unusual?

If G.W. has any reluctance to offend other countries, he sure as **** hasn't demonstrated it up to now.

haha!! why was he asking though? maybe it is code, why wlse would you "think" you "may" need a bathroom break?

It's hoax. The writing is bold and dark. That No. 2 pencil makes thin gray lines. Put in the Museum.

Well I totally agree with Bob there. Just a question about protocol. Assuming it is real, and its all W's writing. Which I think is probable.

And we've all, in writing short notes, written a question as a statement and then tacked on a "?" to make it obvious we want an answer.

Geez. There are hurricanes all over the southern part of this country, people are dying of AIDS and starvation in Africa and Asia, dangerous radicals are developing nuclear technology - NONE of this is W's fault - and you cant think of anything better to do than talk about if he wrote a note or has to take a break?

What, you mean you can?

Funny and sad how many people leave comments feeling sorry for this ridiculous man. He's the Chauncey Gardner of politics. I wish we could flush him.

Reagan was the Chauncey Gardiner of (real) politics. Shrub is the Mortimer Snerd of politics.

The Bush note of 14. of September 2005 is not a hoax.


It was probably illegal satellite beams which made Bush write the note.
