Did Bush wipe hand on Clinton after Haiti handshake?


www.smh.com.au

George W. Bush has been captured on camera apparently wiping his hand on Bill Clinton's shirt after shaking hands with survivors in earthquake-stricken Haiti.

But questions have been raised as to whether Mr Bush was insulting the Haitians, politely wiping away his own sweat and paying scant respect for Mr Clinton in the process, or if indeed the footage had been doctored.

The former US presidents travelled to Haiti as part of humanitarian efforts to aid the stricken nation following the magnitude 7.0 quake on January 12.

The media is calling this one "ShirtWipeGate". I have to admit that it certainly does look like Bush shakes a Haitians hand, goes to wipe his hand on himself, hesitates then wipes his hand on Clinton's shirt. Now, while the hand-on-shirt could be construed as just being a polite "hurry up" gesture, the hesitation in wiping his hand on his own shirt proves, to me at least, that Bush didn't want any of those dirty Haitian cooties on his Precious.

What do you guys think? Polite gesture or display of disdain and disregard toward those Bush sees as "lower" than him?

Let "ShirtWipeGate"commence!!

You're from Australia. How about you leave our political leaders for us to worry about and concentrate on the shabby condition of your own country, which has enough going on.

Seriously, you don't see us showcasing your politicians on ATS now do you?
