He has some mad ninja skills
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip
Dubya is nimble.
Iraqi's can't aim very well.
That camel jockey just seriously disrespected the president of the United States of America. I hope there was a beat-down waiting for him in the back room.
Kudos to Bush for the reflexes. That first shoe would have taken McCain clean out.
That was AWESOME!
That dude has a pretty wicked fastball. . . . er. . . . shoe.
Almost got him.
The shoe slinger was yelling "This is a farewell ... you dog!"
W's replies included:
"That was a size 10 shoe he threw at me, you may want to know."
"So what if the guy threw his shoe at me?" Bush told a reporter in response to a question about the incident.
"Let me talk about the guy throwing his shoe. It's one way to gain attention. It's like going to a political rally and having people yell at you. It's like driving down the street and having people not gesturing with all five fingers. ..."
You know it is so strange, because I thought if that had been McCain you are right that first shoe he'd been down for the count! LOL
Seriously though, Bush was on his feet and nimble! Total disrespect though for sure!
While I certainly have no love for President Bush, he IS the President of the United State of America and that is about as shitty as it gets.
That is a funny ass video though.
He's NOT the president.
He is "The One!"
Sadly, he missed.
Would've knocked Palin out too. This is what Hillary meant by sniper fire. She meant sneaker fire.
Fortunately, one jackass doesn't speak for the entire Iraqi people. They probably aren't really pleased with us, but you don't dis the prez. Obama's on board in a month--just chill out, Omar!
Throwing shoes is just a really stupid insult for Iraqis. After it's all said and done, you have no shoes! The joke's really on you.
"The reporter has been identified as al-Ike Bin Turner."
I can't believe how fast he reloaded.
Of course, we know WHY they throw shoes:

It's how they they get their point across, it's how they get things done, it is how they "Converse".
He put the "air" in his Air Jordan shoes.
Trying to define a New Balance of power in the region.
Getting back to the b Asics...
An example of why Westernization is dangerous. You'd never get that kind of velocity on a sandal.
That guy is obviously NOT Gellin'

that guy rules! it takes some sack to try that
If it was Obama though, he woulda been quick enough to catch the shoe and throw it back at Habib before he could get the 2nd one reloaded.
I agree. He's OUR president to make fun of. I don't like seeing him disrespected by some foreigner and having the video spread around the world.
He did have some cat-like reflexes though.
