Will Ferrell strikes again with his dead-on impersonation of President George W. Bush, who is reportedly feeling left out in the celebration over the death of Osama bin Laden. So Will provides an update from the president.
President Obama went on national television Sunday night to announce that U.S. Special forces had located and killed the al Qaeda terrorist leader and is getting much of the credit for the operation.
Al Qaeda launched the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. on President Bush’s watch.
Although Bush vowed to capture or kill bin Laden for masterminding the attack, he failed to do so during his administration to the point of announcing that bin Laden was no longer being aggressively pursued.
But Obama announced during his 2008 presidential campaign that eliminating bin Laden would be a top priority of his administration.
So Ferrell does his best to save face for Bush by coming up with skit to prove the ex-president has eliminated his own nemesis down on the ranch.
“I’ve personally overseen a strategic and covert operation that killed the gopher who’s been tearin’ up my back yard,” Ferrell-as-Bush says.
“This gopher has been responsible for terrorizing Laura’s fruit trees and diggin’ up holes all over the yard, causing me to trip and fall over them no less than 15 times a day,” he adds.
While Bush no longer has the White House as a backdrop to make official pronouncements, he chooses a place that is representative of his administration –a Sizzler Steak House in Texas.
