Bush Is Back
A man who knows all about shoes as he had enough thrown at him during his time as President is George W Bush who is back in the news with his artistic efforts of World leaders.
'I'm not very good' he said as a way to pre-empt the chorus of everyone saying that he was not very good but having the dumb Texan back in the papers is a fine excuse to reminisce over some of the greatest Bush quotes.
Quotes such as: 'They misunderestimated me' and 'For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America and we're going to do something about it'.
Then there was classic Bushisms like: 'when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace', 'Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?' and on leaving the White House the brilliant 'My first speech since I was the president of the United States and I couldn't think of a better place to give it than Canada'.
My personal favourites are the gloriously inept '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' and 'The problem with the French is that they don't have a word for entrepreneur'.
Oh George, if we put aside the fact that you were such a dangerous, intellectually stunted, warmongering moron, you were quite entertaining.
