What the **** is up with that?
A backrub? A friendly pat? A ninja choke attack? Or maybe they should have omitted the last two words in this headline (and the 's).
Watch that potty mouth, what are you GW?
Apparently she didn't like him doing that judging by her reaction.
Hotel Motel Time!
Bush's idea of hands on diplomacy.
I bet it was one of those terrible aggressive backrubs. Like Buster from Arrested Development. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I dunno, I've heard he has kinda a limp handshake.
Do you ever get the idea that the art of Diplomacy and the conduct of Foreign Policy may not be Fearless Leader's strong suit? Just perhaps the Chancellor of Germany's person might be treated with a little more dignity and respect? What a concept!
Wow, he's such a good guy.
but bush looked deep into her soul and saw that...
no, wait, those were her tits.
I think you've captured the frat boy's soul with that. A good laugh before I go to bed. Thanks, zim.
Here is a very, very rough translation:
Scene 1: Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel speaks with the Prime Minister of Italy, Romano Prodi - Then comes George W.
Scene 2: Merkel talks with [Romano Prodi], not noticing, Bush approaching from the rear.
Scene 3 (4 above): Suddenly, the US-President puts both hands on Merkel's shoulders.
Scene 4 (3 above): The Texan begins a second massage. (?)
Scene 5: Frightened, the chancellor waves her hands highly, not knowing who grabbed her from the back.
Scene 6 (not pictured here): With an innocent expression, the President leaves for his spot at the conference table (?), and Merkel takes the surprising attack as a joke, and smiles.

he needs to stop doing that s***.
Wow, his trip to Germany was pretty much an unmitigated disaster on the diplomatic front. And this just takes the cake. Maybe the pig wasn't as good as Chancellor Merkel had led President Bush to believe...
My theory is that he has gone insane, but the rest of his administration is just letting him do whatever, since no one will notice the difference anyway.
it's getting difficult to keep all the miscues straight. to review, all of these happened on his germany trip?:
1. pig talk
2. the 's' word
3. the backrub
are there more?
Can we say "icky?" I knew we could.
Well there's the lack of anything substantive coming out of the trip...
There is no "German trip". It's the G8 in St Petersburg, Russia. It's very important that the G8 leaders try and find agreement on issues, most of which probably aren't even making the headlines - There's more happening than one expletive.
See 32nd G8.
And the last picture at the bottom - Chancellor Merkel. Priceless.
Oh and let's not forget Bush urging Putin to adopt Iraqi-style democracy, Putin politely declining, and Bush getting the last word in with "Just wait."
A somewhat ominous interpretation could be placed upon those words. It's certainly not typical diplo-speak.
All distractions that the press keeps focusing on that detract from the real issues. Bush has completely lost it alright, but not the way you'd think. Something is definitely up.
Unless you're speaking of the other "S" word he used.
In yesterday's Providence Journal, they ran a feature in the Lifebeat section (entertainment, comics, etc.) about physical contact in politics. On the front page? Not the backrub, but Vladimir Putin shaking hands with a 5 year old boy in Moscow, then lifting his shirt and kissing him on the stomach.
I Remember laughing very hard watching that video on tv. She practically jumped up. I think GW was just trying to be friendly, but he over did it...
