Bush Gets the Boot at Press Conference
During a press conference in Baghdad, President George W. Bush was nearly pelted in the head by a shoe thrown by an Iraqi reporter!
The man -- who called the Commander-in-Chief a "dog" in Arabic -- was yanked out of the room by U.S. Secret Service agents, while Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki moved forward with the conference.
"It doesn't bother me," George W. told the crowd. When asked about the incident later, Bush told AP, "I didn't feel the least threatened by it."
Other journalists in the conference room apologized on behalf of their colleague. The prez arrived in Baghdad over the weekend for his final visit before handing the reins over to Barack Obama in January.
