The Latest Obamaism

From a Memorial Day speech that Obama gave in New Mexico:

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

And this man wants to be commander-in-chief??

I’ll have to admit, Bush has committed more than his fair share of malapropisms. But his can’t compare to the spectacular gaffes coming out of Obama’s mouth these days.

    I guess, just like any democratic politician, he expects the dead to vote for him, in this case the dead vetrans in the audience.

  2. {Begin sarcasm} How dare you question anything that Sen. Obama says. {End Sarcasm}

  3. {Sarcasm} Yeah, ha ha, Bush really can’t compare to Obama’s spectacular gaffes. We’ve totally never had a commander-in-chief so stupid before. Ha ha ha {/sarcasm}

    Bush:

    “Information is moving — you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it’s also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets.”

    “As yesterday’s positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured.”

    “I heard somebody say, ‘Where’s (Nelson) Mandela?’ Well, Mandela’s dead. Because Saddam killed all the Mandelas.”

    “The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq were the ones who attacked us in America on September the 11th.”

    “Wait a minute. What did you just say? You’re predicting $4-a-gallon gas? … That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that.”

    “There is no doubt in my mind when history was written, the final page will say: Victory was achieved by the United States of America for the good of the world.”

    “You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror.”

    “A lot of times in politics you have people look you in the eye and tell you what’s not on their mind.”

    “See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”

    “Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYN’s aren’t able to practice their love with women all across the country.”

    “That’s why I went to the Congress last September and proposed fundamental—supplemental funding, which is money for armor and body parts and ammunition and fuel.”

    “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

    “The ambassador and the general were briefing me on the — the vast majority of Iraqis want to live in a peaceful, free world. And we will find these people and we will bring them to justice.”

    “We ended the rule of one of history’s worst tyrants, and in so doing, we not only freed the American people, we made our own people more secure.”

    “Perhaps the biggest problem is that we have passed children from grade to grade, year after year, and those — child hadn’t learned the basics of reading and math.”

    “There’s an old…saying in Tennessee…I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says Fool me once…(3 second pause)… Shame on…(4 second pause)…Shame on you….(6 second pause)…Fool me…Can’t get fooled again.”

    “There’s no doubt in my mind that we should allow the world worst leaders to hold America hostage, to threaten our peace, to threaten our friends and allies with the world’s worst weapons.”

  4. Oh please, it’s obvious you’re reaching. At worst, Obama’s supposed gaffe is an example of ambiguous grammar. I’ll admit a lot of Bushisms are the result of statements and reactions taken out of context, but much of it is pure, misunadulterated comedy gold. Bush seems like a nice enough feller, but as a president, he was the laughing stick of the entire world for good reason.

  5. give him time he’ll be making loads more where this came from
