The "Windshield Cowboy"
We all know (except for "the stupids") that President Bush is "All Hat, No Cattle" -- but now we need to add "No Horsies" to the list:
Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a “windshield cowboy” – a cowboy who prefers to drive – and “the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life”.By cockiest, I believe Fox meant that Bush doesn't have one, he just is the biggest cock Fox has ever met. Besides, everyone knows who the real cocksman is in the Bush Administration:
He recalled a meeting in Mexico shortly after both men had been elected when Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a “big palomino” horse.
Mr Fox, who left office in December, recalled Mr Bush “backing away” from the animal.
"A horse lover can always tell when others don’t share our passion,” he said, according to the Washington Post.
