Sorry (again) for the lack of updates. Given that I can't think of anything funny to blog about, I just let (soon to be ex) President Bush run his mouth off. Till my next update, hope all my readers are still gainfully employed.
And oh, happy 2009 to all! And you know, this is the fifth year anniversary of this dumb blog.
The 'misunderestimated' president?
All politicians are prone to make slips of the tongue in the heat of the moment - and President George W Bush has made more than most.
The word "Bushism" has been coined to label his occasional verbal lapses during eight years in office, which come to an end on 20 January.
Here are some of his most memorable pronouncements.
"They misunderestimated me."
"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."
"There's no question that the minute I got elected, the storm clouds on the horizon were getting nearly directly overhead."
"I want to thank my friend, Senator Bill Frist, for joining us today. He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me."
"For a century and a half now, America and Japan have formed one of the great and enduring alliances of modern times."
"The war on terror involves Saddam Hussein because of the nature of Saddam Hussein, the history of Saddam Hussein, and his willingness to terrorise himself."
"I think war is a dangerous place."
"The ambassador and the general were briefing me on the - the vast majority of Iraqis want to live in a peaceful, free world. And we will find these people and we will bring them to justice."
"Free societies are hopeful societies. And free societies will be allies against these hateful few who have no conscience, who kill at the whim of a hat."
"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."
"Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"
"Reading is the basics for all learning."
"As governor of Texas, I have set high standards for our public schools, and I have met those standards."
"You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.''
"I understand small business growth. I was one."
"It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."
"I do remain confident in Linda. She'll make a fine Labour Secretary. From what I've read in the press accounts, she's perfectly qualified."
"First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren't necessarily killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn't mean you're willing to kill."
"I don't think we need to be subliminable about the differences between our views on prescription drugs."
"Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYN's aren't able to practice their love with women all across the country."
"Will the highways on the internet become more few?"
"It would be a mistake for the United States Senate to allow any kind of human cloning to come out of that chamber."
"Information is moving. You know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it's also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets."
OUT OF LEFT FIELD
"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."
"Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."
"Those who enter the country illegally violate the law."
"That's George Washington, the first president, of course. The interesting thing about him is that I read three - three or four books about him last year. Isn't that interesting?"
"I have a different vision of leadership. A leadership is someone who brings people together."
"I'm the decider, and I decide what is best."
"And truth of the matter is, a lot of reports in Washington are never read by anybody. To show you how important this one is, I read it, and [Tony Blair] read it."
"All I can tell you is when the governor calls, I answer his phone."
"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office."
