Bush Poem (04 Oct 2003 at 10:30)
I'm sure you guys have already seen this, but, I just want you to read it one more time. Pay particular attention to how Bush thinks that he can slip an extra syllable or two in each line, starting with 4 syllables and ending with 15.

Roses are red Violets are blue Oh my, lump in the bed How I've missed you. Roses are redder Bluer am I Seeing you kissed by that charming French guy. The dogs and the cat, they missed you too Barney's still mad you dropped him, he ate your shoe The distance, my dear, has been such a barrier Next time you want an adventure, just land on a carrier.
- George W. Bush, 53rd president of the United States

HOW CUTE !!!!

I thought this to be a joke, but I'm not so sure since it appeared on CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/10/03/bush.poem.ap/index.html

Congrats with this poetical, cultural president... ("oh my, lump in the bed", ugh... :-) )

Hahah, they even put it on the "interactive" part of the cnn-site: http://edition.cnn.com/interactive/us/0310/bush.poem/content.1.html

Seriously, what's so interactive about this?

Ha ha, well, maybe because we get to "interact" with the president without any mediating "speech writers."

dude, Bush is the 43rd president. Unless you're counting the, um, imaginary presidents? Because that changes everything.

Maybe he earned 10 Bonus Presidential Points for his poem?

This includes the presidents before the constitution was ratified. If you start from the constitution then GWB is 43rd.
