Poor Ole George W the Funniest President Ever

Hello Dummies! I am the Decider Man!
Just recently I watched the movie W. I don't know what happened but I wasn't even aware that there was such a movie until I was sitting back and watching it. If the portrayal of G.W. was  anywhere close to being accurate I felt pity for the guy. Yeah, he was a rich kid who didn't really have much sense but all he ever wanted was for his daddy to love him and to be proud of him. I do think that the movie only touched the surface on how much G.W. (and every prez) was manipulated by the string pullers.

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
"And, again, I don't know where he is. I - I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him." - G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

"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?
"Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties." -discussing the Iraq war with Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson in 2003

"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

"We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories ... And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them." -Washington, D.C., May 30, 2003

"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...


  1. Ahh..memories! I truly believe the late night comedians were shedding a tear when he left office. There went so much material..now they were actually going to have to work at jokes! There for a while, all they did was repeat whatever "double-ya" had said that day.

    I will never be a fan of the Bush's (or any politician) but I do think the movie itself actually gave a fairly accurate description. He was a very good puppet..the string pullers will remember 'im fondly.

  2. Yeah, I have said it before, We should choose a president based upon how funny a character they are.

    We should let the Saturday Night Live audience decide!
