American president George W. Bush made it official on October 13th and signed the UIGEA into law. He made no mention about anti-gaming legislation, focusing on the national security aspects of the bill. Although it’s a good thing he avoided talking about online poker. Thanks to statements made at a recent rose garden press conference, it’s quite obvious Mr. Bush knows jack about poker.
During discussion concerning the North Korean nuke tests and other pressing international issues, Bush compared his strategy in dealing with these "evil-doers" to an optimal poker strategy, stating:
"...one has a stronger hand when there's more people playing your same cards..."
Um. Uh. Ok.
