|Hello Dummies! I am the Decider Man!|
Anyway, I was reading around about some of the things G.W. said and put some of it together here for some laughs.
This might be my all-time favorite Bush quote right here:
"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office." -Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008
That is priceless!
G. W. Bush talks about Osama bin Laden:
On September 13, just days after the infamous "9-11" G.W said this:
"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him." - G.W. Bush, 9/13/01
A few months later he was still positive and dedicated to the mission of finding the bad guy. He was quoted as saying:
"...Secondly, he is not escaping us. This is a guy, who, three months ago, was in control of a county. Now he's maybe in control of a cave. He's on the run. Listen, a while ago I said to the American people, our objective is more than bin Laden. But one of the things for certain is we're going to get him running and keep him running, and bring him to justice. And that's what's happening. He's on the run, if he's running at all. So we don't know whether he's in cave with the door shut, or a cave with the door open - we just don't know..." - Bush, in remarks in Crawford TX, 12/28/01, as reported on official White House site www.whitehouse.gov
In only 6 months time G.W. had all but lost interest in bin Laden:
|I have no idea and really don't care|
"I am truly not that concerned about him." - G.W. Bush, when asked about bin Laden's whereabouts, 3/13/02
Years later, on Sept. 6, 2006, "You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror." -interview with CBS News' Katie Couric.
"So what?" –President Bush, responding to a an ABC News correspondent who pointed out that Al Qaeda wasn't a threat in Iraq until after the U.S. invaded, Dec. 14, 2008
Here are just a few of my own favorite Bushisms that will go down in history:
|Where Do Imports Come From?|
"I think I was unprepared for war." –on the biggest regret of his presidency, ABC News interview, Dec. 1, 2008
"I will not withdraw, even if Laura and Barney are the only ones supporting me." -talking to key Republicans about Iraq, as quoted by Bob Woodward
"Do you have blacks, too?" -to Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso, Washington, D.C., Nov. 8, 2001
"I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." -on "Good Morning America," Sept. 1, 2005, six days after repeated warnings from experts about the scope of damage expected from Hurricane Katrina
"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." - Saginaw, Mich., Sept. 29, 2000
"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound largemouth bass in my lake." -on his best moment in office, interview with the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, May 7, 2006
"I wish you'd have given me this written question ahead of time so I could plan for it... I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with answer, but it hadn't yet... I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I'm confident I have. I just haven't - you just put me under the spot here, and maybe I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one." - after being asked to name the biggest mistake he had made, Washington, D.C., April 3, 2004
"Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere!" - joking about his as he narrated a comic slideshow during the Radio & TV Correspondents' Association dinner, Washington, D.C., March 24, 2004
"I'm the decider, and I decide what is best. And what's best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the Secretary of Defense." - Washington, D.C. April 18, 2006
"There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again." -Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002
"Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." -Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004
"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." -Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004
So, what do you think? Would you vote G. W. the funniest president in history? Do you feel even the least bit of pity for the poor guy? Me? I say feed 'em fish heads...
