    Default a Bush league joke

    One sunny day in January, 2009 an old man approached the White House from Across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S.
    Marine standing guard and said, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

    The Marine looked at the man and said, 'Sir, Mr.Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.'

    The old man said, 'Okay', and walked away.

    The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

    The Marine again told the man, 'Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.'

    The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

    The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying 'I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.'

    The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, 'Sir, this is the third day in row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer
    the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?'

    The old man looked at the Marine and said, 'Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.'

    The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said,
    'See you tomorrow, Sir.'

    Hey Sandra,
    your joke happened in the future ! = really special

    Most women don't like president Bush.
    They all seem to prefer Bill Clinton, even though he is known to be a womanizer...

    amicalement,
    Frank.
    beste groeten - sincères salutations - kindest regards - atentamente - mit freundlichen Grüßen

    Frank, as an American myself, I can say that a dislike for George W. Bush and/or his policies is not limited to any gender, age group, ethnicity, etc. In fact, members of his own party were so displeased that they publicly supported Obama, which is normally a big no-no. The joke made me smile, not laugh...but only because I feel very similar to the old man.

    My friend Frank, I didn't realize it said Jan 09. I didn't stop to think about it, really. Anyway, I really enjoyed although like Scott, didn't laugh, just smiled.
