All the Mendelas are Dead!

The president once again showed his rhetorical skills while opining Iraq's lack of political leadership. Bush suggested that the lack of political progress in the country can be attributed to the absence of Mandela- style leadership.

Or, as he put it, "Mandela's dead!" Notice how the President talks to reporters like they are little kids and have no idea about Saddam's awful reign, slowly explaining that he split up families etc.

My favorite part of this clip?
"...sombudysezame... wheres MAN-DEL-A?"

The irony is that, Mandela is indeed still alive and he was adamantly opposed to the Iraq invasion in 2003. If there was a "Mandela of Iraq", I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be very Pro-American, and would possibly be labeled an enemy combatant.

"What I am condemning is that one power, with a president who has no foresight, who cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust."
- Nelson Mandela in 2003, referring to the Iraq War.

I can just see Nelson shaking his head at Bush as he's watching this from his home in South Africa...
