Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As Franken gleefully points out, Slate editor Weisberg has found a true gravy train, discovering enough previously uncollected nonsensical utterances by President Bush to fill a third volume. The president may have begun watching what he says since the publication of the first two volumes; Weisberg has to return to the 2000 campaign trail to fill out this collection. At least one statement, substituting "plowed" for "proud," raises the question of a presidential speech impediment, but that excuse won't get the self-proclaimed "master of low expectations" out of any of the other verbal missteps recorded here for posterity.

After reading this short book of Bushisms, it's hard to believe that the President of the United States could have so many neurons and synapses misfiring in his noggin. After all, this is the man who has his finger on the button, that's if he can remember the code, or recite it correctly.

This is the man who followed his mother's suggestion to always use a thesaurus so he would never use the same word twice. It's unfortunate he could not recognize a homonym and instead wrote, "The lacerates came streaming down her face." (It makes you wonder how Mr. Shortcircuit could have ever gotten into Yale without having had his grandfather on its board of trustees.)

I have given this only three stars because the calendar of Bushisms offers far more verbal stumblings and gaffes than this provides--365 to be exact. At only eighty-three pages, it is funny but does not contain the best of Bush, the bonehead. Even though I paid very little, I don't think it was worth the S & H.

This book is neither for republicans, nor Bush suppporters, nor English teachers. (Yes, I know.)

As our president said, "I think if you know what you believe, it makes it a lot easier to answer querstions. I can't answer your question."

You just can't make this stuff up!

And this is straight from the horse's mouse.

Make no mistake about it. Apart from a few flubs, this is not a book of mere malapropisms, nor would the first-rate journalist Jacob Weisberg have compiled it if that's all it amounted to.
No, to the careful reader, this book offers insight into the frighteningly simple mind (and shallow character) now in charge of decisionmaking on vital matters of war, diplomacy, the economy and the environment.
For example, is this a man who cares to learn anything about environmental protection in the Arctic?
..."the explorationists are willing to only move equipment during the winter, which means they'll be on ice roads, and remove the equipment as the ice begins to melt, so that the fragile tundra is protected."
Sure, you'll laugh, and laugh hard, but the question all Americans should ponder after reading this book is: how did someone of this caliber come to power in the world's greatest meritocracy? Where is the accountability of the university powers-that-be who admitted W. to Harvard and Yale? Why was much of the U.S. press and public in 2000 so oblivious to Bush's SCANDALOUS lack of preparation for the highest office in the land? Where was the examination of his character back in 2000, when Bush made it a leading campaign issue?
This is the book Kafka urges us to read: a book that "bites and stings" with implied rebuke: how did we let this calamity (this president of both breathtaking stupidity and impoverished character) happen?

I used to laugh at Bush's verbal gaffes too, but seldom is the question asked, is there something wrong with the man? Has he fallen off the wagon? Is his brain fried? Mine would be if I kept up the party-boy lifestyle I had as a college undergrad until I was 40. Think about it, wouldn't your brain be toast too after decades of alcohol and possibly cannibus and poppi abuse? Consider, in the August 2004 timeframe alone, Bush: > stammered some hysterically incomprehensible gibberish about tribal sovereignty to a group of native american journalists. Though it doesn't make for a good Bushism "sound byte" his incomprehensible, rambling, ad hoc answer was funny (there's a Quicktime video of this on the web...) Until you realize how remarkabley unprepared he was. His reply to a straightforward soft ball question also was offensive to native americans, who can actually be heard gasping in the background when his answer implied that native americans were "given" their sovereignty by the US government. > Actually, really, said, "Our enemies will never stop seeking ways to harm our country and its people, AND NEITHER WILL WE!" durning a press conference where he signed a $400 billion plus dollar military appropriation. Doh! > Last but not least, made a mega-freudian-faux pax on the campaing trail in front of thousands when he said something to the effect that... "we must not stop OB/GYN doctors from spreading their love of woman across the country." HA-HA-Huh?! Bear in mind, these >all occured around a one month period<! Also consider that these gaffes come from professionally prepared, written speeches in most cases! All's he has to do is read off a frigg'n sheet of paper!Read more ›

First of all I really love reading the extemporary words of wisdom spoken by the leader of our nation. Sometimes I have difficulty understanding exactly what he is saying, but no matter, his off the cuff remarks are unlike those of any other president in our history.
BUT: You are paying dearly for them when you buy this book. There are only 95 of them in the 84 pages of this slim tome. Gosh, almost 10 cents apiece? It's a book that can actually be read in a few minutes.
Staunch supporters of the prez should consider buying this book, not for the quotations, but for the 44 (yes, forty four)pictures of the president in the book - plus one picture of his dog. Many are full page, suitable for framing shots that would fit nicely on your corporate desk.
And now would someone please explain a couple of the quotes?
"You see, the Senate wants to take away some of the powers of the Administrative branch." I was taught that there are 3 branches of govmint: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. On what date was the Administrative branch added?
"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." I thought it was supposed to go "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."
And lets part with the following: "I am the master of low expectations." and "There may be some tough times here in America. But this country has gone through tough times before, and we're going to do it again." Hmmm, sounds sort of dire. Kind of reminds me of Kafka's saying "Hope is infinite, but not for us."
