A Bush blooper - Address @ Queen Elizabeth II Ceremony

At the white house welcome ceremony for HRH Queen Elizabeth II, the audience laughed aloud at a verbal slip by Bush when he said the queen had dined with 10 U.S. presidents and had helped the United States "celebrate its bicentennial in 17.." though I am 100% sure I heard him say 'seventy-seventy-six' 1776 . Bush caught himself and corrected the date to 1976."

Bush joked that the queen just "gave me a look that only a mother could give a child."
