Le monde c'est moi
At yesterday's press conference, in yet another unscripted Freudian slip moment, Bush revealed what he thinks his job description is.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush ... said his message that "the world is more peaceful and more free under my leadership" will be a prominent theme of his bid for a second White House term.

Shouldn't someone break the news to him that he is only the president of the United States and not of the whole world?

I love it. More peaceful? It’s a measurable lie. Let’s compare the number of suicide bombings worldwide in the last three years under Clinton and the last three under Bush. If the world is more peaceful, it’s because a couple African civil wars have wound down, a process with which he had almost nothing to do.

Later in the same press conference he admitted he’s all hat and no cattle. Referring to the coming election: "There's no question politics can -- will -- create ... a lot of noise and … hot air. I'll probably be right in the mix of it, by the way."

Update Corrected my lousy French.
