George W. Bush reveals the most nerve-wracking moment of his presidency

George W. Bush has told the world exactly when the most nervous moment of his presidency happened, in a HBO documentary about 9/11 that aired this past Sunday.

It wasn’t when he learned the first airplane had struck World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

It wasn’t when the second plane hit the WTC.

It wasn’t when he realized al Qaeda was behind the attack.

It wasn’t when envelopes full of powder that could have been anthrax were delivered to the White House.

And it wasn’t when he realized that the United States was hemorrhaging more than 700,000 jobs per month at the tail end of his administration.

“The president ya wanna have a beer with” says that the most nerve-wracking and anguished moment of his entire presidency came when he threw out the opening pitch in the third game of the 2001 World Series, three weeks AFTER the most horrendous crisis in American history.

It was the most nervous I had ever been,” he said. “It was the most nervous moment of my entire presidency, it turns out. The adrenaline was coursing through my veins, and the ball felt like a shotput. I just took a deep breath and threw it,” he said.

When asked by the documentary interviewer if the moment on 9/11 when he was told by Andrew Card, “Sir, the nation is under attack” would have been the most nervous moment, Bush said, “Oh … yeah … that was terrible, too.”

If for no other reason, this “revelation” should be justification enough to throw this drunken, imbecilic dunce into prison for the rest of his miserable existence.
