Here is a selection of 50 quotes from President George W. Bush, for entertainment or for meditation:

A man lost in his geography(一个地理“迷”):

1.We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe.”



注:其实这句话是Dan Quayle(奎尔,老布什的副总统)说的,现在被安到了布什的头上,冤枉啊!

2. “It’s time for the human race to enter the solar system.”



注:Dan Quayle1990年说的

3. “The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country.”



A man lost in his logic(一个逻辑“迷”):

4. It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it. “



注:这是Mad Magazine假冒奎尔说的话,讽刺其9095年的政策。

5. “Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.”



6. “These people are trying to shake the will of the Iraqi citizens, and they want us to leave…I think the world would be better off if we did leave…”



7. “I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family.”



8. “If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.”



9. “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.”



10. Well, I think if you say you’re going to do something and don’t do it, that’s trustworthiness.



A man lost in space(一个宇宙“迷”):

11. “For NASA, space is still a high priority.”



这句话也是Dan Quayle说的,在1993年。

A man with heaven on his side(侧身即天堂的人):

12. “I believe God wants me to be president.”



13. [I was] chosen by the grace of God to lead at that moment.”



14. “God told me to strike at al-Qaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East.”



15. “I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn’t do my job.”



The man lost in his vocabulary(一个词汇“迷”):

16. “Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children.”



17. “The problem with the French is that they don’t have a word for ‘entrepreneur’.”



18.One word sums up probably the responsibility of any Governor, and that one word is, ‘to be prepared’.”



19.’There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.’



Thoughts coming straight from George Orwell’s ‘1984’(直接来自乔治 奥威尔的《1984》的想法):

20. “Iraq and Afghanistan …are now democracies and they are allies in the cause of freedom and peace.”



21. “Ariel Sharon … is a man of courage and a man of peace.”

“沙龙是一个勇敢的人,热爱和平的人。” p>


22. “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.”



The deceiving pacifict(愚弄……):

23. “I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we’re really talking about peace.”



24. “This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table.”



25. “Free nations don’t develop weapons of mass destruction.”


26. Governments accountable to the voters focus on building roads and schools—not weapons of mass destruction.” (N.B.: The U.S. has 10,000 nuclear weapons)



The theologian(神学家):

27. “Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of people, is a peaceful religion.”


28- “The Islam that we know is a faith devoted to the worship of one God, as revealed through The Holy Qur’an. It teaches the value and the importance of charity, mercy, and peace.”



The Flip-Flopper(爱变卦的墙头草):


29.”I favor leaving up to a woman and her doctor the abortion question.”


30. “I am pro-life.”


Someone who is pro-life thinks that women do not have a right to choose whether or not to give birth to a child they have conceived, and that abortion is wrong in most or all circumstances.

31.”The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.”


32. “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”


33. “We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories…for those who say we haven’t found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they’re wrong, we found them.”


当然,为了配合布什,拉姆斯菲尔德说:我们知道大杀器在什么地方,They’re in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south and north somewhat.就在Tikrit 和 Baghdad周围,往东、往西、往南或往北的某个地方……

The forecaster of things to come(先知……):

34.”Oh, no, we’re not going to have any casualties [in Iraq].”



35. “We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur. “
