The Internets are flying with rumors American President George W. Bush was behaving strangely at the 2008 Beijing Olympics — some believe he appeared drunk in public, and one online magazine has wondered aloud in the past if Bush is a “Dry Drunk” — and so if an image speaks a thousand words, I’m curious what the following captures in time reveal to you.
Is this the behavior of a proper, tired, man — or a man who is unsteady on his feet because of an unfortunate effect taken into his body?
Is this how we believe the President of the United States should act and behave in public with our Olympic beach volleyball team?
Is the leader of the most powerful democratic nation in the world allowed to “let loose” at an international event without pausing a moment to determine the power of the propagated memes?
Or does the role of the President require a certain amount of decorum and grace at all times?
