Today we came across a remarkably gracious comment by the president in an interview this week with talk show host Larry King. King asked the president if he was ambivalent about the change of power in the White House and the inaugaration of Barack Obama. Here's the reply:
King: Do you like him?
George Bush: Yes, I do like him, and you'd like him, too.
Here's a link to the entire interview.
And, here's a sampler of other coherent (dare we say articulate?) Bush quotes, such as this one:
"After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers."
Other sources for non-embarrassing Bush quotes:
A little googling shows W could be deliberately (not accidentially) humorous, too. Click here to browse more examples such as this:
"I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to come and witness my hanging."
Now if you've had enough serious stuff, don’t miss this great BBC story about Bush's gaffes that has good video links.
