It must have been all that running Bush does to keep on his toes.  Bush is quite the athletic fellow you know :)

It's funny that ever since I think Carter was in office the presidents have had incidents that were caught on tape.  
Carter: Fell down alot (I been told, since I wasn't alive to witness it)
Regan: Not sure of but figure something has happened to him.
Bush Sr.:  Incident in the Embassy with the Dipolmat being used as a barf bag
Clinton: Falling off of a step of a porch injurying his leg.
and now Bush Jr.: Trying to get on a Segway and falling off his first time.

And I would love to see people here the first time they get a chance to ride a Segway since most of us haven't and propabally will do the same thing or something similar to it.

Oh, lest you forget Gerald Ford kicking it off, falling down the stairs from Air Force One.  But this definitely counts up there for Bush as a "DOH!"  moment.

I think that most of us wouldn't want to use such a silly, pointless device in the first place.  :)

Exactly...

This isn't questioning Bush's policy, and this isn't questioning his integrity.  This is making fun of him because he's clumsy (He's had a LOT of "funny" moments like this one, not just physically but verbally...  He's just a president that's easy to poke fun at for "little" things).

No need to fear a "Political debate" because the only reason you'd take offense to making fun of a man falling is if you're the man who fell.  No harm, no foul...

I'm a democrat but still laugh at Carter's clumsy behavior, it was amusing...  I think the 3 Stooges are mildly entertaining too. :)

I cringed too when I saw Bush's name in the title here, but we're fine.  This isn't a thread that's political in nature.  It's just a funny/embarrassing moment caught on film for a famous politician (yeah, I know that's a slight understatement).  But as long as the conversation just relates to Dubya's clumsiness, we're cool...  Could've been any famous person really, and it would've still been pretty damned funny.  Being the President of the United States, whether he's democrat, republican, independent, or whatever, just makes it even more noteworthy...

We've got the JD seal of approval here (so far)...   8)

Maybe he can send it to America's Funniest Videos and win!

If only he'd nailed himself in the groin. America's Funniest Videos generally specializes in accidents involving crotches. (I'm sure Clinton already sent his in.)

Clinton's was more of a disaster than an accident...  

It was like Ernest Borgnine booked a flight on Clinton's crotch and doomed it to tragedy.

I thought of this thread when I saw this picture of the President dropping his dog



How many funny pictures of you would they have if there were reporters constantly around?
