Err, this Bushism is just too weird not to note and for some reason has been hard to find in the US press. (via DaveNet).
During a chat between the American president George W Bush ....and Fernando Henrique Cardoso (of Brazil), Bush suddenly burst out with the question: "Do you have blacks, too?" Rice, his national security advisor rescued the situation by explaining, "Mister President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Outside of Africa, it has more blacks than any other country in the world." Cardoso reasoned afterwards that where Latinamerica is concerned, Bush is still in the "learning stage."
