Random Irony

Andrew Card, the former Chief of Staff for President Bush, thinks President Obama is being prideful over the killing of Osama bin Laden.

In an interview with German newspaper Der Spiegel, Card said that Obama has “pounded his chest” too much over the death of Osama bin Laden, particularly by going to Ground Zero earlier this week, the site of the 9/11 attacks.

“I think he has pounded his chest a little too much,” Card said. “He can take pride in it, but he does not need to show it so much.”

Card, of course, was a top official in an administration noted for its theatrical press events, most notably the decision to have President Bush land a fighter jet on board an aircraft carrier before delivering his famous speech celebrating the invasion of Iraq in front of a giant “Mission: Accomplished” banner.

I can never tell when these people are being serious or not.
