Did Bush really just say that? (updated)

I’m lying in bed this morning listening to the news on and I hear Bush’s comments on the search for Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan’s wilderness:

It’s a wild place out there. Wilder than the Wild West!

He really does think he’s living in the movies! It reminds me of his “Top Gun” moment:

Bush Top Gun

Update: I just found the of the talk the sound clip was from. I misquoted slightly. The actual quote is:

Taliban and al Qaeda fighters do hide in remote regions of Pakistan — this is wild country; this is wilder than the Wild West

It sounds no less silly to me.
