The Incompetence Defense

The latest White House Meme on the Spanish National Anthem Kerfluffle:
Critics have accused Bush of hypocrisy for opposing a Spanish language version of the anthem.

They pointed to a book called "American Dynasty" by Kevin Phillips, who wrote that Bush "would drop in at Hispanic festivals and parties, sometimes joining in singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' in Spanish."

McClellan said the assertion did not ring true to him because, "The president speaks Spanish, but not that well."

"I'm saying that not only was that suggestion absurd, but that he couldn't possibly sing the national anthem in Spanish. He's not that good with his Spanish," McClellan said.
Next up, ya can't blame the President for the failures in Iraq and the Middle East because he doesn't know foreign policy that well.

If it limps like a duck, yet quacks like a duck, it is a lame duck!
