President Bush who has presided over more failures than any American President or Chicago Cub manager delivered an almost comprehensible speech praising the hidden strength of the US dollar.
To demonstrate his faith in the American currency, Bush showed reporters the crate loads of dollars he was bringing to Europe with me as he flew to Germany to give Frau Merkel a back rub.
I believe in the greenback, Bush was reported to have said, and I am taking every last dollar I have to the only woman left on this planet who will let me touch her. Reporters reminded Bush the German Chancellor Merkle looked repulsed at his last back rub overture. Bush is said to have replied that repulsion is the most positive reaction he has received in ages.
