U.S. President George W. Bush told a German newspaper his best moment in more than five years in office was catching a big perch in his own lake.
(I think that was his "benchmark" day also)
"You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.

"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake," he told the newspaper in an interview published on Sunday.

Bush said the worst moment was September 11 when hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

"In such a situation it takes a while before one understands what is happening," Bush said.
(I don't think he's got it figgered out yet)
"I would say that this was the hardest moment, once I had the real picture before my eyes."

Because Bild could not immediately furnish English quotes, Bush's comments were translated from the German. The paper said the White House planned to release an authorised English version of the interview on Monday.

Well, we knew it would have to be something that was all about HIM, right? HIS lake, (Not "OUR" Lake) HIS fish, HIS WAR. Total egomaniac! When it isn't about him, he can't relate, takes him seven minutes to digest Two Jets crashing into the WTC, and five days to digest dead bodies floating, and people starving and dying in New Orleans. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Lucky Rumsfeld wasn't there with the bird shot. That could have been Bushies's worst day. Did he have the fish with Rice,and a white wine?
