President Bush’s Big Fish Story
The only problem is that the world’s record for the largest freshwater perch caught is 4 pounds 3 ounces.
So Bush either doubled the world record, and didn’t report it, or he’s a liar.
The plot thickens, as the White House transcript of said interview has Bush saying, “I would say the best moment was when I caught a seven-and-a-half pound large mouth bass on my lake.”
So, either the German translation was off, Bush somehow said “perch” when he meant “bass,” or he was trying to score big points with the Germans by claiming a record fish catch. Hmm.
