Oh, come on - he was wiping his hand... and Bill's reaction was like "hey, this dude's comin' on to me....."Myeah.... I think Bush was a terrible president but there's nothing here. He just patted Clinton... doesn't look like he was trying to wipe anything off on him.
I'll give you this, it's much to do about nothing... but you'll have to admit, G. stroking Bill's arm was worth a laugh..Just goes to show that if you hate Bush, he can do no right in your eyes, even when he's trying to raise money for Haitians there always something to fake rage about.
No one is showing any actual outrage here. It looks very much like G.W. shook a hand and then wiped his hand on Bill's shoulder. Personally, I think that's funny as hell. He probably didn't even think about it, but if I shook your hand and then wiped my hand on something, that'd be considered rude. I personally think that GW has actually been significantly better post presidency than during.Just goes to show that if you hate Bush, he can do no right in your eyes, even when he's trying to raise money for Haitians there always something to fake rage about.
That's GWB for ya. He refused to shake Arlen Spector's hand because Spector had cancer and Bush thought it was contagious.

Arlen Specter's new book, "Never Give In: Battling Cancer in the Senate," chronicles the long-time Pennsylvania senator's struggle with an advanced case of Hodgkin's disease. During an appearance on "Hardball" with Chris Matthews Thursday, Specter brought along a photo of himself shaking President Bush's hand to illustrate one of the lessons of his book.
In the photo a bald and visibly ill Specter can be seen shaking hands with a clearly reluctant Bush, who noticeably keeps his distance with his arm fully extended. "He's keeping you at arms length," Matthews laughed. Why was he doing so? Specter offered several theories of what might have been going through Bush's mind at that moment, for example: "He's the chairman, I guess I got to shake his hand."
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23955734/MATTHEWS: Hes got the longest reach, senator. Hes like hes keeping you at arms length there.
SPECTER: Thats the point. The point is that I speculate on what he was thinking. Maybe it was Arlen Specter doesnt look good; I dont know whether hes going to make it. He might have been thinking, hes the chairman; I guess Ive got to shake his hand. Or perhaps hes thinking, they say it isnt contagious, but who in the hell knows?
WE have a different idiot in chief now. Just making sure you got the memo. The last one didn't like black people, the current one doesn't like white people.Pahleese. Talk about reading into things.... He could have been like "hey bill lets head over here"
There is a lot more shit to deride the idiot in chief than this. Least he's making an effort.
