In a recent interview shoe-chucker Muntadhar al-Zeidi told Egyptian TV that Obama is no different than Bush.
“Away goes a white dog, and along comes a black dog.”
MEMRI TV reported:
Muntazer Al-Zaidi: With regard to Bush’s bloodthirsty nature, several foreign journalists asked me, after the earthquake in Haiti, about the fact that Bush had gone there as if he was a “peace activist.” I said: Believe me, Bush did not go there for the sake of human rights or for the victims. He went there because he missed the smell of blood, and the stench of destruction that he wreaked on Iraq. So he went there to get a whiff of that smell, because he is a sick man.

Interviewer: In your view, Obama is not very different from Bush, even if he wraps the actions of the US in false humanitarian wrapping.
Muntazer Al-Zaidi: We have a saying in Iraqi Arabic – and I’m sure the Egyptian brothers living in Iraq know it. “Away goes a white dog, and along comes a black dog.” They are the same, except for the color. Away goes a white US president, and along comes a black president. They are no different.
That’s just racist.
