Today's Bush Joke Humor & Fun

Many people have criticized the Bush administration's strategy in the global war on terror. Their plan has always been to take the fight to al Qaeda and slowly, but surely destroy them. So, Mr. President, if you had to sum up your strategy? [on screen: Bush saying al Qaeda has been weakened]. Well, Tuesday saw the release of the latest war on terror progress report, a new National Intelligence Estimate on the terrorist threat to the homeland. It says al Qaeda has re-established its central organization, gained a safe haven in Pakistan, and rather than being hurt by the war in Iraq, has been instead "energized" by it and helped Osama bin Laden to recruit and raise funds. But most important about the NIE? It proves once and for all why we must stay in Iraq [on screen: Bush saying, "The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq were the ones who attacked us in America on September 11th"]. The same folks? First of all, what exactly do you have to do to people to lose your colloquial status as "folks"? — Jon Stewart
