President Bush ducks close range flying shoes like a pro (Video)

December 14, 2008

Iraq (ChattahBox) — Soon to be ex-President George W. Bush may have a future in dodge ball. Many politicians have seen a hostile egg or tomato come their way to test their poise and reflexes.  President George Bush who made a surprise appearance in Iraq today it’s safe to say was not welcomed with open arms. During a news conference with the Prime Minister of Iraq, a reporter threw two shoes, one after another at close range at the President’s head. President Bush seemed to spot his attacker and confidently dodged both shoes, like a seasoned pro. Check out the video of the incident after the jump.

While he was throwing his shoes, his assailant was yelling “This is the end.” According to Bloomberg, throwing a shoe in the Arab culture is a sign of disrespect ( as in most cultures I would guess).  Security pounced on the assailant and no one will probably ever see him again.

Afterward President Bush quipped about the flying shoes saying, “I’m OK… All I can report is it is a size 10,” he said.
