I have a few favorites:

"I understand small business growth. I was one."
-New York Daily News, FEB. 19, 2000

"The most important job is not to be governer, or First Lady in my case."
-Pella, Iowa, as quoted by The San Antonio Express-News, Jan. 30, 2000

"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."
-Greater Nashua, N.H., Chamber of Commerce, Jan. 27, 2000

"Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"
-Florence, S.C., Jan. 11, 2000

Another favorite of mine: Bush or Chimp?

There is no doubt Bush is not the most eloquent speaker we've ever had in the White House...and sometimes his wording is less than comprehensible. But I like him nonetheless.

However, I think my favorite -ism from any president is "While my answers were legally accurate, I did not volunteer information," and the resultant confusion about the word 'it'.

I swear, I'm fairly well read, and haven't had an issue with the word "it" since I was about 2. I was a tad worried I had missed something in my life when the debate about what "it" is occurred.

Best-
Michele

Sorry Michele, I would rather have a smart man lying about sex, than a dumb man lying about everything else...

I personally think it should be *required* we lie about sex! I really don't want to hear about it.

I like the three jobs one the best I think, it shows how out of touch with regular people he is.

Another one I like is:

"I think if you know what you believe, it makes it a lot easier to
answer questions. I can't answer your question."

lol...lol...lol

I've found a few

"I'm hopeful. I know there is a lot of ambition in Washington, obviously. But I hope the ambitious realize that they are more likely to succeed with success as opposed to failure."

"I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn't here." —at the President's Economic Forum in Waco, Texas, Aug. 13, 2002

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." —Washington, D.C., Dec. 19, 2000

lol...lol....lol

I don't know...I mean I am trying to think, if my choice was a man who I thought truly cared for me and the world...and one who didn't have me on his radar, I would choose the former.

Would a man you were married to lie about sex AND truly care for you? It could be fatal. Don't get me wrong; I am NOT a Bush fan either. I love the saying "How come we have 50 choices for Miss America and only 2 for president."

I only brought it up because you responded to my comment "unless he's my husband."

Here's a great Bushism from my Presidential (Mis)Speak daily calendar...
"People can read everything they want into it when they hear 'faith-based initiative'. That all of a sudden opens everybody's imagination in the world to vast possibilities, some w hich exist and some which don't."
