Bushims: They Will Be Mist

Watching this collection of Bushisms is oh so bittersweet. On the one hand Bush’s presidency was, by all accounts, a complete and utter disaster. On the other hand, he did manage to give us some of the most delightfully cringe worthy sound bites of any president, and now they shall be no more. Watching Bush speak is like watching a poor swimmer slip and fall into the deep end – which is probably why you get a sinking feeling every time you see him standing at a podium. He stands there and does his best to keep his head afloat, but eventually he succumbs to the unrelenting current of grammar and and syntax. What bubbles up afterward is both hilarious (because you can’t believe what he just said) and depressing (because the guy who just said that is also the President of the United States of America). Honestly, Bush seems like a pretty down to earth, laid back and likable kinda guy – the kinda guy you’d want to sit down and have a beer with, but certainly not the kinda guy you’d want to hold the most powerful office on the planet.

They say the toughest times are yet to come, but if we can survive eight years with Dubya at our country’s helm, than I’m certain we can handle whatever else might lie ahead. And that, my friends, is a sentiment that shouldn’t be misunderestimated.

  1. Wonder how long before someone starts collecting Obama-isms. Hopefully, there won’t be any, but I know there are some diehard Republican losers out there just waiting. Thanks for the memories.
