  1. Post your favorite Bush quotes up here.

    Some might make you laugh, others might make you cry... but it's our President nonetheless.

    Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream. - George W. Bush

    But oftentimes I'm asked: Why? Why do you care what happens outside of America? - George W. Bush

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

    A lot of times in politics you have people look you in the eye and tell you what's not on their mind. - George W. Bush

    I'm oftentimes asked, What difference does it make to America if people are dying of malaria in a place like Ghana? It means a lot. It means a lot morally, it means a lot from a -- it's in our national interest. - George W. Bush

    I heard somebody say, 'Where's (Nelson) Mandela?' Well, Mandela's dead. Because Saddam killed all the Mandelas. - George W. Bush
  2. "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."
  3. "My plan reduces the national debt, and fast. So fast, in fact, that economists worry that we're going to run out of debt to retire."
  4. I love all the nicknames he gives people.

    My favorite is either Turd Blossom which he gave to Karl Rove, or Pootie Poot for Vladimir Putin. I mean come on, the guy may be a complete doddering tool, but he is a funny fucker!
  5. "Should the Iranian regime-do they have the sovereign right to have civilian nuclear power? So, like, if I were you, that's what I'd ask me. And the answer is, yes, they do."

    - (on the possibility of a flu pandemic), July 10, 2007

    "My relationship with this good man is where I've been focused, and that's where my concentration is. And I don't regret any other aspect of it. And so I -- we filled a lot of space together."

    "In my line of work you got to repeat things over and over again for the truth to sink in... to kind of catapult the propaganda."

    On a talk with Vladimir Putin:
    "I sat down with him and I said, 'Look Vladimir'- I call him Vladimir."

    After one of his father's fundraisers while apparently intoxicated answering the question 'What do you think about the American people?:'
    "I love the American people. It's an election year right- yeah, I love the American people... good tax payers."
  7. Sorry I can't embed this, so many to choose from. Nobody makes it sound as bad as dubya does it!


    My favorite lie of his though, is when he swore under oath to protect the US Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. What a joker!

    He's told that one twice now.
  8. A quote made in the months leading up to the 2000 election:

    "I don't think our troops ought to be used for what's called nation building."
