Bush: Holding Three Jobs Uniquely American
While talking with audience participants, the president met Mary Mornin, a woman in her late fifties who told the president she was a divorced mother of three, including a 'mentally challenged' son.

The President comforted Mornin on the security of social security stating that 'the promises made will be kept by the government.'

But without prompting Mornin began to elaborate on her life circumstances.

Begin transcript:

MS. MORNIN: That's good, because I work three jobs and I feel like I contribute.

THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?

MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)

That sounds terrible, yes, but it could have been much worse. Like instead, he could have been like:

"Well, DUH, that's what you get for getting a divorce! Stand by your man! DUH, what a dumbass!"

And then he would have given her a noogie.

Is it too late to call him an idiot?
