I am afraid, Mr/Ms Stinger, we have different ideas about Mr. George W. Bush. I give him all my respect and consider him being a serious and wise statesman and a real patriot of his great country.
I had a pleasure listening his public speeches on TV, and I did not find there anything unreasonable or eccentric. And about slips of tongue: well, who is free from making some?

Anyone who wins an election with less votes than the 'loser', gets my respect too.

This pertains to the specific of electoral procedure in the USA, when the President is being elected indirectly. This was not Mr. Bush, as far as I know, that established such rules.

Listening to George Bush, is a source of much pleasure to me as well. Indeed, it's not just pleasure, but amusement as well......

About "Mexican language". I am sure, it is a slip of tongue. Mr. Bush is fluent in Spanish, and I cannot imagine that he does not know the name of the language he is able to speak and read.
Slovakia is a relatively young independent nation; for centuries it was a part of Austro-Hungarian empire, then it was a part of Czechoslovakian federation. When Mr. Bush was a student, there was no independent Slovakia on the political map of Europe.
Africa, surely, is not a nation, it is a continent hosting dozens of different nations. But, in this case, I also consider this being a slip of tongue: I cannot imagine that anyone may not know such a thing.
About Texas, California and Washington, D.C. Well, technically Mr. Bush is right: Texas is much closer to California than D.C.

Mr Bush to the president of Brazil:

"Do you have blacks in your country as well?"

It's interesting to learn that GWB is fluent in Spanish, because fluency in English seems so far to have eluded him.
