How did I get in this handbasket?

Now there's some quick thinkin' by our leader.

Ok, I don't really have time to post, so I'll spare you my usual long-winded spew, but I simply could not resist pointing this out.

On April 13, 2004 during a press conference Mr. Bush and a reporter had this well documented exchange:

Q Thank you, Mr. President. In the last campaign, you were asked a question about the biggest mistake you'd made in your life, and you used to like to joke that it was trading Sammy Sosa. You've looked back before 9/11 for what mistakes might have been made. After 9/11, what would your biggest mistake be, would you say, and what lessons have you learned from it?

THE PRESIDENT: I wish you would have given me this written question ahead of time, so I could plan for it. (Laughter.) John, I'm sure historians will look back and say, gosh, he could have done it better this way, or that way. You know, I just -- I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with an answer, but it hadn't yet.

Well, now it is 4 months and weeks later, and he finally has come up with something.

In what The New York Times said was the US president's first acknowledgement on the issue, Bush said he made a "miscalculation of what the conditions would be" in postwar Iraq.

That's right, folks: He's been plugging away at this question for 136 days and he finally has an answer for us! You'll notice that he wished he could have had "this written question ahead of time." Apparently, If he was going to give an answer to that question on April 13, 2004, the reporter would have had to submit the question on November 29, 2003.

Man, this guy is dumb like a sack of wet mice....
