Adding some value to Bush’s knowledge


Today Bush signed the Second Chance Act, which is something about rehabilitating former prisoners through the power of Jebus.

IN OTHER WORDS: “The bill I’m signing today, the Second Chance Act of 2007, will build on work to help prisoners reclaim their lives. In other words, it basically says: We’re standing with you, not against you.”

He had a photo op with some people who work with former prisoners, but he couldn’t thank them: “I can’t thank the folks who care enough about a fellow citizen to offer their love and compassion.”

Later, he met Singapore’s Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong.

GOOOOOAAAAL! “And I also am so pleased that the trade agreement that we negotiated during our respective times was kicked in.”

DON’T FEAR THE VOICES: “We spent time on Burma and the need for the military regime there to understand that they shouldn’t fear the voices of people. And yet they do.”

Goh made a Bush-is-so-stupid joke, to general hilarity: “Then the President was interested in developments in Asia, so I was able to add some value to his knowledge -- (laughter) -- on Southeast Asia and on Asia.”

Bush also spent some time this morning searching for Lincoln’s gold.
