Bush to Disabled: "You Look Mighty Comfortable"

May 10, 2006

It's been a banner week for the verbal incontinence of George W. Bush. Just days after telling a German reporter that the highlight of his presidency was "when I caught a 7.5 pound perch in my lake," President Bush made a bizarre remark certain to charm disability advocates everywhere. Pitching his troubled Medicare prescription plan in Florida, President Bush said to a man in a wheelchair, "You look mighty comfortable."
Just another example of "compassionate conservativism" in action. Hopefully, the White House staff will keep President Bush away from our troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
