How did this FOOL become President?
Edited on Mon Aug-29-05 09:25 AM by ck4829
"The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country."
- George W. Bush

"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."
- George W. Bush

"One word sums up probably the responsibility of any Governor, and that one word is 'to be prepared'."
- Governor George W. Bush

"I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future."
- Governor George W. Bush

"The future will be better tomorrow."
- Governor George W. Bush

"We're going to have the best educated American people in the world."
- Governor George W. Bush

"I stand by all the misstatements that I've made."
- Governor George W. Bush

"We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe."
- Governor George W. Bush

"Public speaking is very easy."
- Governor George W. Bush

"A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls."
- Governor George W. Bush

"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur."
- Governor George W. Bush

"For NASA, space is still a high priority."
- Governor George W. Bush

"Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children."
- Governor George W. Bush

"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
- Governor George W. Bush

"It's time for the human race to enter the solar system."
- Governor George W. Bush

One thing is for certain, and that is if you don't believe that there are people who control Bush, then you might be a bigger fool than him.

PS - I hear that most of these quotes are not real.

8. He won the election because he cheated....twice.
Maybe, he even cheated in the Texas Gubernatorial race against Ann Richardson, too!

12. Interesting that one email attributed these quotes to John Kerry!
And that some of them are from a spoof of Quayle from MAD magazine!

18. And in 2000 they were attributed to Al Gore
And these quotes will be used against both the GOP and Dem candidates in 2008. Book it.

6. Mencken on democracy
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

-- H. L. Mencken

14. This one's more apropos today
As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - HL Mencken 1880-1956

9. Good question....
It could be viewed that his entire tenure, and everything to do with his oath of office is illegal.

It is illegal because the elections were fraudulent, and the Supreme Court Justice was corrupt.

Therefore if we ever get off our asses and get the FBI involved, we might be able to remove the whole lot of them. On account of universal criminal activity and breaching or trouncing the constitution for selfish gain.

19. Another question that deserves answering.....
How come most pro-war bush supporters, Free Republicans are 30 years of age or younger?

How most of these folks are young and not enlisting in the war?

What in the world happened where these guys, got so poorly educated that they believe we should go to war all the time and destroy other countries for oil?

:wtf:

I think that's a question everyone needs to answer, how did we get an undereducated free republic.
