Bushisms, The Last Round ...
President Obama will be sworn in by now and immersed in the day's festivities, celebrating with, well, most of the nation. Funny how his approval rating is 79 percent, yet 79 percent of the country didn't vote for him. Could it be that he's won folks over since election day?
But I digress. This is the last-ever installment of Bushisms on this blog, because while I'm sure Bush will go on to say stupid things in his post-Presidential life, I won't be paying any attention, just as I don't pay any attention now. But
First, a prescient quote from Karl Rove:
"As people do better, they start voting like Republicans — unless they have too much education and vote Democratic ...."
And now, some final words from W:
"I'm not the expert on how the Iraqi people think, because I live in America, where it's nice and safe and secure."
— Washington, D.C., 2004
"I speak plainly sometimes, but you've got to be mindful of the consequences of the words. So put that down. I don't know if you'd call that a confession, a regret, something."
— To reporters in Washington, D.C., January 14, 2005
"This business about graceful exit just simply has no realism to it at all."
— Amman, Jordan, November 2006
And last but not least:
"I hope you leave here and walk out and say, 'What did he say?' "
— Beaverton, Oregon, 2004
Over and out, George. Over and out.
