38. Not only that, but how do you settle on the list, considering...
that everytime the dumbass opens his mouth (especially lately!), he's spewing out something else that might be deserving of a top-50 spot!

Even so, most of those 50 would be pretty hard even for this moran to top! And so I say, "DUBYA, you've said enough. Now just shut up and go away!"

I was getting worried that "won't get fooled again" wasn't going to make the list.

This was real good, but I'm sure there were some lame quips (what's the white house like? "it's white") that made the list over some of his truly idiotic statements.

11. One of my favorites is missing
The one concerning people putting "food on their families".
And how about the time he kept calling out the name "Bianca" at a news conference when there was no such reporter there?
There was a very funny video I had seen on the "internets" about a year ago narrated by Arianna Huffington that was a spoof on how he arrives at some of his great words of "wisdom" -- but I can't find the link now.

related to GWB. Nowadays, the only thing I hate more than seeing a picture of him is hearing his voice. I still like hearing about him being mocked secondhand or even mocking him by seeing his words written down but his pictures and his voice no longer amuse me no matter what inane thing is coming from it and him.

28. "I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5-pound perch in my lake.
2006: Poor George, in an interview published today by the German weekly Bild, answers a question about the best and worst moments of his presidency.

Recent presidents have also dealt with this question. President Carter said I think the best time was probably dealing with the Middle East issue at Camp David. President Clinton said, ...I don't know. So many things passing economic plan, passing the Brady Bill and assault weapons ban the role that I was fortunate to be able to play in the peace process in the Middle East and in Northern Ireland (PBS interview with Jim Lehrer).

President Bush said: You know, I've experienced many great moments, and it's hard to name the best. I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5-pound perch in my lake. The White House would later say that President Bush was joking, although Bild did not report the president as being humorous. President Bushs answer in the same interview as to his worst moment certainly was serious; the president cited the events of 9/11. Mr. Bush said I would say that this was the hardest moment, once I had the real picture before my eyes.

29. "...achieve important goals. And one such goal is a democracy in Germany
2006: Poor George is interviewed today by a German reporter. Mr. Bush starts the interview with an Oval Office tour: One of the interesting things about the presidency is people watch me like a hawk These are all Texas paintings ... At least if you're a Texan, it reflects a way of life and a way of thinking. The interesting thing about Washington is that they want me to change and I'm not changing no matter how pressurized it may seem, I'm not changing That's George Washington, the first President, of course. The interesting thing about him is that I read three - three or four books about him last year. Isn't that interesting? Later, Mr. Bush lays out some plans for the future including this one: The point now is how do we work together to achieve important goals. And one such goal is a democracy in Germany

My trip to Asia begins here in Japan for an important reason. It begins here because for a century and a half now, America and Japan have formed one of the great and enduring alliances of modern times. From that alliance has come an era of peace in the Pacific.

33. No. 2 - sad, and true.
No. 1 is just sooooo stupid! Only a person who does not accept any personal responsibility for the repercussions of that statement would say that! What a dooshbag. Needs the AA program. bah. humbug.

51. Number 2 is funny, but sad because it's true. Number 1 is jsut incredible.
Number one takes the cake for sheer stupidity. It's like asking for US soldiers to be shot at and killed. 2996 now?

But I have to cite Number 47 as being just unbelievably DUMB. What a totally dumb thing to say to a reporter.

47. "We both use Colgate toothpaste." after a reporter asked what he had in common with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Camp David, Md., Feb. 23, 2001

37. At 10,000 dead people a laugh, it's getting painful.

41. Here's one I have always laughed at

"And let me say in conclusion, thanks for the kids. I learned an awful lot about bathtub toys--about how to work the telephone. One guy knows--several of them know their own telephone numbers--preparation to go to the dentist. A lot of things I'd forgotten. So it's been a good day." --George W. Bush at the Emily Harns Head Start Center in Catonsville, Maryland. 1/21/02

Too stupid to live and yet, somehow he does.

53. These bushisms give me a good old fashion belly laugh!
:rofl:

On a serious note, it's really not all that funny that the president of the United States is such a dim wit.

60. # 15 isn't dumb,
it makes sense.

Things should have been like that. What 5-6 years of incompetence can't achieve...

61. My kids and I were talking about quotes like this just last week.
They find it hard to believe that anyone, much less the "elected" leader of a nation, could be so dense and ignorant on such a wide variety of subjects.
