About to make another Bushism

About to make another Bushism

President George W. Bush will leave behind a legacy of  Bushisms, the label stamped on the commander in chief’s original speaking style. Some of the president’s more notable malaprops and mangled statements are published here.

Some that I like are:

• “Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?” — January 2000, during a campaign event in South Carolina.

• “There’s no doubt in my mind, not one doubt in my mind, that we will fail.” — Oct. 4, 2001, in Washington. Bush was remarking on a back-to-work plan after the terrorist attacks.

• “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” — Aug. 5, 2004, at the signing ceremony for a defense spending bill.

• “The fact that they purchased the machine meant somebody had to make the machine. And when somebody makes a machine, it means there’s jobs at the machine-making place.” — May 27, 2008, in Mesa, Ariz.

• “And they have no disregard for human life.” — July 15, 2008, at the White House. Bush was referring to enemy fighters in Afghanistan.

  1. Greg, I had warning bells ringing about this peabrain when during his original campaign he revealed that Africa was a country, just like that emptyhead Palin did recently.

    And when a university student approached him (captured on camera) during a dinner at the start of his first term, and declared that, “I’m ashamed of what you are doing, Mr President”, he replied, “Who cares what you think, son”, with that now traditional smirk on his face.

    That was more than enough to convince that in the Ol USofA, anything’s possible.

  2. The ‘Bushisms’ just prove what a real f*ckwit he was … and is. Only in America could someone so f*cking stupid rise to such a position of power. At least we here in Australia recognise real dumbness in our leaders early in the piece and ‘nip it in the bud’ … Yeah, well, I’m talking about Brendan Nelson, in case you hadn’t cottoned on. G’night all!
