Today's Tuesday's Tribute is about our departing president Mr. George Bush.
While I think that Bush was not a fabulous president (understatement) and not really a bright man (understatement), I have to give credit where credit is due. Mr. Bush did do a great deal for the Pro-Life movement and I applaud his Supreme Court appointments. Yet, by far, his best achievement has been the creation of Bushisms. Mr. Bush was quite possibly the funniest president this nation has ever had. Really, what other president inspired whole calendars with Bushisms?
Here are just a few of my favorites.
"Misunderestimate" (November 6, 2000).
"I'm the decider." (April 18, 2006).
"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." (September 29, 2000).
"You work three jobs? ? Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that." (February 4, 2005).
"Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?" (January 11, 2000).
"It was not always certain that the U.S. and America would have a close relationship." (June 29, 2006).
"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." (May 24, 2005).
Sorry BO, as charming as everyone seems to think you are, you just can't rival Bushisms.
