'Bush seeking new ways to harm the USA'

Hello,

Please, don't see any Freudian theories in the next news blurb. And don't seek any political plans behind it either. And if you're doubting whether to take this one neutrally or negatively, keep in mind that I meant it to be neutral.

That said (and if you feel that any more statements should be included in the disclaimer, please feel free to add them yourself), here's another Bushism.

From the Boston Globe: http://www.boston.com/dailynews/218/..._admini:.shtml

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush offered up a new entry for his catalog of ''Bushisms'' on Thursday, declaring that his administration will ''never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people.''

...

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

No one in Bush's audience of military brass or Pentagon chiefs reacted.


Marty

I like those edits David Letterman does to make Bush and Kerry say funny things

hahaha you know, it would almost be worth voting for him to have another four years of hilarious Bushisms.

Consider this: one of the criticisms about 9/11 is that the government had not seriously considered the "airplanes as weapons" senario. To prevent new forms of attacks, you must think of the previously unthought of methods.

It called the researching the unknown unknowns.

Good point nbc, but terrible phrasing by Bush.

Also, regarding the unknown unknowns, Rummy said it best

Quote:
As we know,

There are known knowns.

There are things we know we know.

We also know

There are known unknowns.

That is to say

We know there are some things

We do not know.

But there are also unknown unknowns,

The ones we don't know

We don't know.

Well I'm glad they are thinking outside the box, but why oh why are they still letting this man speak?! Bush should never speak again. He can't do it. The man never ceases to amaze me. It's embarassing.

I work in public relations ... I know I get tense whenever my clients speak to the press or in public. I cannot imagine how tense Bush's press secretery gets.

The guy must be on Xanax 24/7. That's the only way I'd be able to do it.

Unfortunately, our illustrious President seems to do this a little tiny bit more often than most.....
