Vicente Fox: Bush a "windshield cowboy" who's scared of horses
And that's what the guy's friends say about him! Daily Telegraph covers Fox's biography:
President Bush may like to be seen as a swaggering tough guy with a penchant for manly outdoor pursuits, but in a new book one of his closest allies has said he is afraid of horses.
Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a "windshield cowboy" – a cowboy who prefers to drive – and "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life".
He recalled a meeting in Mexico shortly after both men had been elected when Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a "big palomino" horse.
Mr Fox, who left office in December, recalled Mr Bush "backing away" from the animal.
'A horse lover can always tell when others don't share our passion," he said, according to the Washington Post.
C'mon, let's be charitable. Maybe Bush was scared of the horse because He didn't have a firecracker to shove up its ass?
NOTE Via TPM, but they left out the good quotes!
UPDATE I have to say, I love "windshield cowboy." I really hope that one sticks. And is that Kinky Friedman I hear in the background?
