2006 George W. Bushisms Box Calendar

( 6 )

Overview

After the 2004 presidential election, the London Daily Mirror asked, "How can 59,054,087 people be so dumb?" This calendar provides some insight into that question by looking at the man that these people actually voted for as their leader-George W. Bush. Well known for his ability to turn a phrase-into a mess of syntax likely to send wordsmiths into fits of convulsive hyperventilation-Bush is a seemingly endless font of mangled verbiage for Slate magazine's Jacob Weisberg to compile into best-selling books as ...

Overview

After the 2004 presidential election, the London Daily Mirror asked, "How can 59,054,087 people be so dumb?" This calendar provides some insight into that question by looking at the man that these people actually voted for as their leader-George W. Bush. Well known for his ability to turn a phrase-into a mess of syntax likely to send wordsmiths into fits of convulsive hyperventilation-Bush is a seemingly endless font of mangled verbiage for Slate magazine's Jacob Weisberg to compile into best-selling books as well as this calendar, which sold nearly 200,000 copies last year. This edition contains such spoken misfires as, "You disarm or we will" and "One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures." It's a portal into the 43rd President's mind and those of his followers. We'll alert the Daily Mirror.

    Bushisms...Open Mouth, Insert Foot

    I'll admit it I'm not a Bush fan. So anything funny that can be said about him is OK with me. But this book contains direct quotes from the man himself. Yah gotta love him, even if it's just for his sheer stupidity. Some things I can't even believe he said, but judging by the research the author did, I feel a certain measure of accuracy in the quotes. One other note, most of the quotes represent times when 'W' is speaking off the cuff and hasn't had a speech written for him by his speech writers. In my opinion, these bushisms represent his true personality. It's easy to read a speech and sound credible, it's another thing to do 'improv' so to speak and sound intelligent. Something George W. Bush definitely is not after reading this book!

    A President who says things this stupid deserves a calendar poking fun at him

    It's sad that a calendar can be filled up with 365 STUPID things the president has said. I can laugh all I want becuase I voted for Kerry, thank God.

    First thing in the morning

    Take politics out of it and just think what your second grade teacher would have thought of W's grammerification *L*. Hard to believe that he made it into Yale let alone out of Yale. You can see why the White Staffers cringe when he goes 'off script'.

    Great!

    This just shows off how well spoken the President can be at times. It is a great way to wake up and appreciate that you are not as bad with the spoken word as the person who was placed in the presidency of the most powerful country in the world.

    get a life

    Obviously the author has nothing better to do than revisit the presidents speeches, he obviously is taken in by the president so much he has to write about him. The negativity is just an act:)
