George W. Bush's Top 10 Dumbest Moments

George W. Bush’s adventures in the White House are soon coming to an end. The “decider” will soon pack up his cowboy boots and head back home to Texas. He leaves office with a litany of problems, including two unfinished wars and a country in the midst of a catastrophic economic crisis.  He may be a deeply unpopular president, but he was always good for a laugh. Love him or hate him, George W. Bush was hugely entertaining.

10. Food on Americans

As a presidential candidate, George W. Bush was prone to gaffes. In Nashua, New Hampshire on January 27th, 2000 he spoke at a campaign rally and said "You're working hard to put food on your family." I wonder what family dinners are like at the Bush house. Does everyone line up and wait for Barbara or Laura to start smothering everyone with food? Even with an error like this, he still managed to get “elected.”

9. Bush Massages German Chancellor

In 2006, George W. Bush attended a G8 summit meeting in Germany along with other world leaders. In the middle of the meeting he decided that Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, needed a back rub. He sauntered over to the German leader and started massaging her shoulders and neck. Merkel immediately hunched her shoulders, threw her arms up in the air and looked terribly uncomfortable. Bush strolled away and bloggers screamed sexual harassment.

8. Bush Attacked by Camera

President Bush was in the middle of a press conference “sharing his thoughts on what he was thinking about” when a camera came unstuck and started swinging in front of Bush’s face. Bush looked at it totally confused. The moment perfectly captured how the Commander in Chief handles an unexpected situation.

7. Bush Swears

At the same G8 summit where he man-handled German Chancellor Angelina Merkel, Bush faced a barrage of criticism for uttering a swear word in a private conversation with British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. Bush was unaware he was being recorded when he explained his plan for peace in the Middle East. He told Blair “What they need to do is get Syria to get Hizbollah to stop doing this sh*t, and it's over." It’s not the worst swear word in the book, but it's hardly eloquent and very unpresidential.

6. Bush's New Ways to Harm the Country

During Bush’s campaign for a second term he inadvertently suggested that his administration was plotting new ways to harm the United States. While signing a bill for defense spending Bush said, "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." He certainly delivered on that promise.
