Bush, George W. - Want Some Wood?
During the second presidential debate between George W. Bush and John Kerry (10-8-2004), John Kerry was asked a question about how America could remain competitive in manufacturing. During the answers and rebuttals between Senator Kerry and President Bush, the following exchange took place:
KERRY: The president got $84 from a timber company that owns, and he's counted as a small business. That's how they do things. That's just not right.
BUSH: I own a timber company? That's news to me. Need some wood?
A funny exchange, intended to make Kerry look like a liar and/or an idiot. Only one problem...yes, the President does, in fact, own a timber company.
Bush has part ownership of Lone Star Trust, which is an oil and gas company. Lone Star Trust owns 50% of another company, LSTF LLC. According to Bush himself, LSTF LLC is a company organized "for the purpose of the production of trees for commercial sales."
So, according to Bush's own words, he DOES own a timber company. Guess he forgot!

Wow! Bush is very amazing. I think when he goes to bed at night, he comes up with ways to seem more and more stupid.
