    The 'misunderestimated' president.

    President George W Bush; Here are some of his most memorable pronouncements:
    1. "They misunderestimated me."
    2. "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."
    3. ''I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe - I believe what I believe is right."
    4. "There's no question that the minute I got elected, the storm clouds on the horizon were getting nearly directly overhead."
    5. "I want to thank my friend, Senator Bill Frist, for joining us today. He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me."
    6. "For a century and a half now, America and Japan have formed one of the great and enduring alliances of modern times."
    7. "The war on terror involves Saddam Hussein because of the nature of Saddam Hussein, the history of Saddam Hussein, and his willingness to terrorize himself."
    8. "I think war is a dangerous place."
    9. "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."
    10. "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."
    11. "You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror."
    12. "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"
    13. "As governor of Texas, I have set high standards for our public schools, and I have met those standards."
    14. "You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.''
    15. "I understand small business growth. I was one."
    16. "It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."
    17. "I do remain confident in Linda. She'll make a fine Labour Secretary. From what I've read in the press accounts, she's perfectly qualified."
    18. "First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren't necessarily killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn't mean you're willing to kill."
    19. "Will the highways on the internet become more few?"
    20. "It would be a mistake for the United States Senate to allow any kind of human cloning to come out of that chamber."
    21. "Information is moving. You know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it's also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets."
    22. "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."
    23. "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."
    24. "Those who enter the country illegally violate the law."
    25. "That's George Washington, the first president, of course. The interesting thing about him is that I read three - three or four books about him last year. Isn't that interesting?"
    26. "I have a different vision of leadership. A leadership is someone who brings people together.""I'm the decider, and I decide what is best."
    27. "And truth of the matter is, a lot of reports in Washington are never read by anybody. To show you how important this one is, I read it, and [Tony Blair] read it."
    28. "All I can tell you is when the governor calls, I answer his phone."
    29. "I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office."

    I hope Micheal Moore makes a documentary on his quotes and speaches.
    I was laughing by the half way mark of this list. Some I've heard, others that are better than I could have imagined.
    I love the sound of an idling bike early in the morning

    The stand-up comedians of the world must be preparing for a day of mourning on inauguration day. A continuous, bountiful source of material--gone!

    Just think: two boring seasons of Obama jokes until Palin starts her primaries.
