:LOL :LOL :LOL :LOL Too funny!

* "When I was coming up, it was a dangerous world and you knew exactly who they were. It was us versus them and it was clear who them was. Today we are not so sure who the they are, but we know they're there." -- Texas Gov. George W. Bush, presidential candidate.
* "Food on the family." -- George W. Bush listing one of the priorities of his future administration.
* "This is Preservation month. I appreciate preservation. This is what you do when you run for president. You've got to preserve." -- George W. Bush to several hundred children at an elementary school in Nashua that was celebrating what it called Perseverance Month (not Preservation Month).
* "Is your children learning?" -- George W. Bush on education.
* "Some people have too much freedom." -- George W. Bush
* "The Grecians." -- George W. Bush on Greek people.
* "What I'm against is quotas. I'm against hard quotas, quotas that basically delineate based upon whatever. However they delineate, quotas, I think, vulcanize society." -- George W. Bush, meaning to say "balkanize," not "vulcanize" -- we think -- and something about quotas (Austin American-Statesman 3/23/99).
* "Sitting down and reading a 500-page book on public policy or philosophy or something." -- George W. Bush when asked to name something he isn't good at (Talk magazine, September 1999).
* "Please! Don't kill me." -- George W. Bush to Larry King, mocking what Karla Faye Tucker said when asked "What would you say to Governor Bush?" prior to her execution by lethal injection (as reported by Talk magazine, September 1999).
* "Tell them I have learned from mistakes I may or may not have made." -- George W. Bush

2000 "Jeb's the smart one" -- George Bush Sr. to dinner partner

I wish i could remember where I put some of the funny Dan Quayle quotes I used to have. Anyone?

Those are great, but you left out one of my favorites:

"It's not pollution that's harming our environment, it's the impurities in the air and water."

I just finished reading "More Bushisms" and am about to go pick up "Bushisms" from the library. Sad, more than funny really. Other good books are, "Is our children Learning?" which was written before he was elected and "Its still the economy stupid."

This one:

Just makes me sick and angry. Mocking a person being executed is beyond good taste, imo.

He is rather reminescent (sp?) of Quayle isn't he? I guess we needed a good laugh, but at what cost?

It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic. But then, it doesn't seem to me like our country honors deep thinking that much lately. Its all "show your support, tie a ribbon, wave a flag" but don't you dare ask any questions, got to be a good American, ya know.....

At what cost? Are you implying that something bad will happen of we quote the president? these are only quotes, i haven't talked about how awful it is that a man with an IQ of 98 got into the WH or how incredible that people are trusting someone who said in his campaign thathe isn't a smart men but his cabinet would be good. once Pat robertson said "Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." I decided not to even comment on what an idiot he is because i thought his quote spoke for itself. I intended for the quotes here to dothe same. and i think they do.
