W In The Double Digits ...

Bush has fewer than 100 days left in office.

In honor of this "milestone," I thought I'd dust off the ol' George W. Bush Out of Office Countdown page-a-day calendar (a Christmas gift from L.A. Dave), and rummage around for some shiny gems from the past few months because this is it, kids. There will be no more Bushism calendars. Once he leaves office, I'm sure he'll continue to say stupid things, but we'll pay less attention. Or maybe we won't pay any attention at all.

So we best get while the gettin's good. Here, then, is a smattering of Bushisms for your very much president-mocking pleasure:

"I own a timber company? That's news to me. Need some wood?"
— Second presidential debate, St. Louis, Missouri, October 2004

"Brie and cheese."
— Speculating about journalists' favorite foods, August 23, 2001

"I said I was looking for a book to read, Laura said you ought to try Camus. I also read three Shakespeares. . . . I've got a eck-a-lec-tic reading list."
— Interview with Brian Williams of NBC News, August 29, 2006

"One of the interesting initiatives we've taken in Washington, D.C., is we've got these vampire-busting devices. A vampire is a – cell deal you can plug into the wall to charge your cell phone."
— Denver, Colorado, August 2001

"This morning my administration released the budget numbers for fiscal 2006. These budget numbers are not just estimates; these are the actual results for the fiscal year that ended February the 30th."
— Washington, D.C., October 2006 (referencing the 2006 fiscal year, which ended on September 30th)

"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."
— Interview with Katie Couric of CBS News, September 6, 2006

"We stand for things."
— Davenport, Iowa, August 4, 2004

And finally, from the "It was true then and it's true now" file:

"America better beware of a candidate who is willing to stretch reality in order to win points."
— Aboard the 2000 campaign plane, September 2000

You can only make decisions based on what information you have available. After 9/11 official sources from the UN, NATO and the US Military concluded that Iraq had developed weapons of mass destruction and were harboring terrorists. At the time about 83% of Americans supported going into Iraq, and 88% of Americans supported going into Afghanistan. It is easy to just complain after the fact when all has been said and done using very selective reasoning. You are not in the position of executive responsibility and accountability to the people, and thus don't have to make the tough decisions facing the leaders of our world.

IF actually you believe that 9/11, during his first months in office, and hurricane Katerina happened because of President Bush, then you might as well blame him for the nail you broke in the morning.
