George Bush Has Lost His Mind - Calls 'Australia' - 'Austria' - Calls 'APEC' - 'OPEC'

SYDNEY: Even for someone as gaffe-prone as US President George W Bush, he was in rare form on Friday, confusing Apec with Opec and transforming Australian troops into Austrians. President Bush’s tongue started slipping almost as soon as he started talking at a business forum on the eve of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Sydney.

Mr Prime Minister, thank you for your introduction,” he told Prime Minister John Howard. “Thank you for being such a fine host for the Opec summit .”
As the audience of several hundred people erupted in laughter , Mr Bush corrected himself and joked, “He invited me to the Opec summit next year.”Australia has never been a member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Later in his speech, Mr Bush recounted how Mr Howard had gone to visit “Austrian troops” last year in Iraq. There are, in fact, no Austrian troops there. But Australia has about 1,500 military personnel in and around the country.

Bush At APEC

Oh geez. There he goes again. All those big words and no pictures. It's tough when one's mind is permanently in an ice cream brain-freeze migraine.

Less than 500 days until a village in Texas gets its idiot back.

He's the most powerful human being on the planet, the one with the little black box that can destroy the world! Have a nice day!

It's hard to believe that so much stupidity can occur during the performance of single person: Welcome to the life of the President of the United States!

The "non-exit exit" was hilarious!

No wonder the rest of the world thinks Americans are blithering idiots.
