W - the Comedian

After George W.'s final press conference yesterday, I must admit part of me will be sad to see him go. Oh, this is not to say that I agree with his politics or not (that is not what I am questioning) however some of the more humorous moments occur when this man starts to speak.

Take for example - in yesterdays final unscripted press conference, when George is asked about Mistakes he believes he has made during his presidency he states:
"Not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment. I don’t know if you want to call those mistakes or not, but they were — things didn’t go according to plan, let’s put it that way."

In 8 years in office this man has been the 'butt' of many a joke - so much so that he even spawned a little cartoon "lil Bush" (which I watched faithfully.) He may not have been the best President we've had, but he will not be forgotten...

Bushisms 101 -
"Your eminence, you're looking good." --George W. Bush to Pope Benedict XVI, using the title for Catholic cardinals, rather than addressing him as "your holiness," Rome, June 13, 2008

"We got plenty of money in Washington. What we need is more priority." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., June 2, 2008

"Wait a minute. What did you just say? You're predicting $4-a-gallon gas? ... That's interesting. I hadn't heard that." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Feb. 28, 2008

What will you remember most about George W. Bush?

There are way too many things to EVEN go into, but mostly I will rmember the vomit taste in my mouth every time I saw his face on tv.

It's impossible to make everybody happy.

With as much speaking as the presidents do, I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often!
