    "The taxes we cut are working, . . ." Bush said. Ah, that doesn't sound like Shakespeare.

    I wonder if the president understood the implications of telling folks that compared to himself (Bush), Burns makes Bush look intelligent. :rolleyes:

    A case of dumb and dumber?

    Is it true that Bush claimed last week that he did not like to invade Iraq? :grumpy:

    Please don't hijack this thread and turn this into a political discussion. This started out as a light-hearted, fun poke at Bush. Don't drag it out of that.

    Hail to the Chief (2001)
    words and music by John McCutcheon (using actual quotes from GW Bush)

    The election of George W. Bush made us realize that Dan Quayle was a man way ahead of his time. Based entirely on W's statements and speeches.

    I was born in West Texas, pretty near California
    Far away from Dad's home in DC
    When I'm talkin' 'bout myself and
    They're talking 'bout myself
    All of us are talkin' about me
    Now some may retort to personal attacks
    Take the high horse then claim the low road
    But I'm not revengeful person
    I'll simply respond with this ode

    When I delivered the State of the Budget Address
    I offered a question or two
    How can a man still put food on his family
    Will the tollbooth to the middleclass become more few?
    It's time to make the pie higher
    This idea's sure to resignate
    This is no time to be subliminable
    It's a time to unificate

    If there's more trade, there's more commerce
    And we'll bring this solution to an end
    Even if your business is Hispanically owned
    If you speak French or Mexican
    We're working for a hopefuller country
    No longer vulcanized
    Where humans and fish can coexist
    And each act civilized

    I think we agree, the past is over
    Still we're held hostile everywhere
    Today we're not so sure who "they" are
    But still, we know that they're there
    No longer inoculated from what is coming
    With a foreign-handed foreign policy
    Keep good relations w/ Kosovoans and Grecians
    And resist emotionality

    We know reading is the basics of learning
    And learning -well - I forget the rest
    But teach a child to read and he or her
    Will sure pass a literacy test
    So I ask you, "Is our children learning?"
    Will we tolerate failed subsidation
    Or will this be where wings finally take dream
    Not a cufflink of federalization

    So if you're tired of the politics of polls and of principles
    It's time that you join this campaign
    We're looking for women who while serving our country
    Never the house will they stain
    Where our priorities is our faith
    Where a troop can house his family
    We'll find power to power the power of the power plants
    No, you'd best not misunderestimates me

    And yes, Bush actually made those statements. :rolleyes:

    With every word and every breath
    Our language dies a slow, sad death
    Hail to the Chief, let's give him hail
    Part Yogi Berra
    Part Dan Quayle

    Charlottesville, VA 2001

    I was so "in the mood" for this today. Do you own this album? Sounds funny.

    Bush should come with a disclaimer.:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    :rofl: I think that's why it's funny. What was he actually referring to anyway? A Montana accent compared to a Texas accent? But, yeah, I just love it when people say things that have a double meaning like that and they don't even realize it. :biggrin:

    While speaking at the Euro economic summit, Bush drove right to the heart of the problem with the French: "...they don't have a word for entrepreneur".

    But the BBC attributes the comment to The Times on 9 July, 2002. :rolleyes: The question is whether or not a Times reporter actually heard that and is quoting Bush, or if they got it from a reliable source/witness.

    It wouldn't suprise me if Bush believed or said that.

    That's the key to urban legends: They have to be believable. This is certainly believable. :biggrin:

    The history and propagation of that particular (false) rumor is traced in the link I gave, which apparently no one glanced at.
