Bush Is First US President in Mongolia

He might be the first anything in Mongolia.

I thought that Mongolians were just a tall tale invented to scare little Chinese children and justify the building of a tremendous wall. Guess I was wrong.

President Bush became the first sitting American president to visit Mongolia, stepping out of Air Force One into a frigid plain. Right now, that could be anywhere. You could describe Washington DC as a frigid plain for Bush.

President George W. Bush thanked Mongolia Monday for standing with the United States in Iraq. Mongolia has troops in Iraq? Mongolia has troops? There's a Mongolia? I am learning more and more each day doing this. What's next? Tomorrow I'll learn that there's a country between Germany and France that starts with an L.

Mongolia has 131 troops in Iraq and about 50 to Afghanistan in support of the U.S. war against terrorism, clinching its status as an ally. That's not an allied military presence, that's a high school football game turnout. Thanks Mongolia for at least pretending to support. Most countries won't even pretend to not hate us.

Most people do not see a reason for being in Iraq. Even rabid partisans like a couple of my cousins have become disappointed with bush.

yeah I saw Bush having difficulty finding the exit strategy for the Mongolian press room. I would make fun of him but I've been known to walk into closed plate glass doors.

Thanks for the compliment and for stopping by the blog.
