We bashed President Bush for all of his verbal miscues, it seems only fair to mock Obama for his. Wonder if Barack got a tour of those "Polish death camps" afterwards :pound:

I knew what he meant as soon as he said it. (Death camps filled with Poles located in Poland and run by Nazis)

Bush could only hope to make such accurate gaffs.

Haha, if nothing else, Bush was a very funny guy. I definitely enjoyed his sense of humor.

I thought it was pretty obvious too, though. Quite sure the POTUS knows there weren't "polish" death camps.

No worries, I think it's just human nature for people to defend someone they like. To me, it's almost comical how mad Poland is about it. I live in Pittsburgh, and if Obama would've said "Pittsburgh Death Camps", I'd have laughed it off, knowing that it was just a mistake. I wouldn't be all bent out of shape about it.
