'Tard of the Decade - George W. Bush

Tuesday, January 20, 2009
"Strategery."

"I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn't here."

"They misunderestimated me."

"I'm the commander -- see, I don't need to explain -- I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being president."

"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."

"I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe -- I believe what I believe is right."

"Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

"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."

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

"Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed."

"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office."

"Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?"

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

"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."

"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."

"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

See ya', W. Good luck with that "legacy" thing, you 'tard.

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

A little reminiscent of George Orwell's 1984, where the three slogans of the ruling party were "War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength."

Bye bye Big Brother.

Is that why it's so sunny today?

Wendy said...

What was that "whooshing" noise we heard at 12:06 PM EST???

Why, it was the collective sigh of an entire country at the moment PRESIDENT OBAMA finished taking his oath of office!

Dear Secret Service,

Please take extra good care of the Obamas, and let us know if there's anything we can do to help.

Signed,

Concerned Citizens

My all-time favorite Bushism: "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."

And then there's his classic tribute to the nobility and sacrifice of practicing medicine: "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 the country."

Farewell, Mr. Bush--it's been surreal.

What I simply do not understand is this reported crowd of 25,000 cheering people that greeted him in Midland TX upon his return there. Do these people literally see a completely different George W. Bush than I do?

Janiece Murphy said...

Natalie, I really couldn't say.

But I'm kind of sick of talking about ole W and his insane clown posse.

So you all can chat amongst yourselves, if you wish - just don't drink all my beer and eat all my chocolate.

Jeri said...

Or - both at once!

Chocolate Porter

I've had it and it's like a dark porter with an extra layer of bitterness from the chocolate - fun to taste but I don't know that I'd order it or even drink a pint of it.

neurondoc said...

Hmmm, chocolate or ol' Georgie? That's not a hard choice.
