During a campaign tour of the Apache Nation (during the campaign) in the state of New Mexico, President George W. Bush said he had a plan to increase every Native American's income by $40,000 a year. The President refused repeated requests for details of his plan. However, he also told the Apaches that during his career as the Governor of Texas, he signed YES 9,637 times.... for every Indian issue that reached his desk for approval.
Before his departure, the Apache Tribe presented the President with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, Walking Eagle. After the President departed on Air Force One, tribal officials explained to the news media that Walking Eagle is the name given a bird so full of shit that it can't fly
Sometimes, things just won't work the way we want them to.
