President Bush: "Ooh, I Touched a Negro..."
Just as a picture speaks a thousand words, a video can speak volumes. Or, sometimes a video doesn't really really show what it clearly appears to show. Anyway, I couldn't help but post this video of President Clinton and President Bush touring earthquake-ravaged Haiti. Watch President Bush closely at the :13 mark.
Tell me that President Bush didn’t just wipe his hand on President Clinton’s shirt after shaking hands with a Haitian. Actually, it looks like he first started to wipe his hand on the woman to his left and then changed his mind.
I have no idea what really happened or what, if anything, President Bush may have said, and I don’t really think that President Bush is a racist or a xenophobe. But I think that the title for this post bears at least some similarity to what the video seems to show.
