A Horse! A Horse! My Kingdom for a Horse!



Is apparently a phrase Bush, that windshield cowboy, will never utter:

President Bush may like to be seen as a swaggering tough guy with a penchant for manly outdoor pursuits, but in a new book one of his closest allies has said he is afraid of horses.

Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a "windshield cowboy" – a cowboy who prefers to drive – and "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life"...

Mr Bush has spoken of his fondness for shooting doves and cutting brush on his Crawford ranch in Texas, which he bought in 1999.

The property reportedly has no horses and only five cattle.
As the magnificent Molly Ivins used to say, all hat and no cattle.

Flashback: Laura Bush on what her husband did to a male horse.

From the same article we also learn this:

Donald Rumsfeld, his defence secretary until last November, asked recently if he missed the president, said flatly: "No."
Careful Rummy, or you'll be as welcome as a horse at Crawford and the White House.

Added: And speaking of Rummy, Stanford faculty and students are none too happy with its Hoover Institute giving him a visiting fellowship.
