There is no doubt that George W. Bush felt a lot of pressure as the president of the United States. But, there is a limit to how many mistakes the public will let pass without harsh criticism. Unfortunately George W. Bush is possibly the worst speaker of this century, which can be forgiven, but often his quotes are truly humiliating. Here is a list of quotes from HoldemHarry that George W. Bush should be embarrassed of.
“I promise you I will listen to what has been said here, even though I wasn’t here.” Sadly this was said at the President’s Economic Forum in Waco, Texas, August 2002, seems like a place a president should be paying attention. Wonder where exact George W. Bush thought he was that day, truly a quote to be embarrassed of.
“You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.” and “Is our children learning?” are two quotes that actually raise concern. Obviously our schools need more assistance if the president of the United States cannot form a couple proper sentences, which were ironically about education.
“The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq were the ones who attacked us in America on September the 11th.” George W. Bush announced this in Washington D.C. July 2007. Shocking to hear the president admit an attack on his own country, George corrected this statement immediately and as he should have been was embarrassed.
“Do you have blacks too?” America should be partially embarrassed for this since it was said to the Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso in 2001. Not only is this question unbelievably racist it is also incredibly ignorant. George W. Bush should not only be embarrassed by this question, but also ashamed he ever asked it all.
“They misunderestimated me” it was in Bentonville Arkansas that George W. Bush said this. Who knew that the president had the authority to make up words on the spot? Not only is misunderestimated not a word, but it is a double negative. Therefore George Bush should be double embarrassed for this quotation.
“I just want you to know that when we are talking about war, we’re really talking about peace” said in Washington D.C. June 2002. Really, what kind of backwards logic is that? Apparently foreign disputes and people dying is part of peace. George W. Bush should be embarrassed by this quote as well.
George W. Bush was unfortunate enough to suffer from a stutter when speaking in public which was the start of his ridicule, but by the end of his presidency he had said enough humiliating quotes to shame himself as a horrible public speaker. Most often these quotes were corrected, though some were not, and even the most offensive ones were never addressed by him in public. Reading the quotes above should open up eyes to the type of man George W. Bush really is, an individual who often makes mistakes. Always bear in mind that just because George Bush has embarrassing quotes does not make him the worst president or a bad person.
