"Rarely is the question asked: |
Is our children learning?"
--George W. Bush is right. That question is rarely asked, probably because most Americans know the difference between the singular and plural forms of a verb.
(Quote is from a Bush statement in Florence, S.C. on 1/11/00)
"My [tax cut] plan is realistic because it avoids meaningless 15-year projections."
--George W. Bush goes to extraordinary lengths to defend his tax cut plan. Imagine a life insurance company telling you that its financial picture is "realistic" because it hasn't bothered to project death rates, filings of claims, and sales revenues in the years ahead. Kind of crazy, isn't it?
(Quote is from a Bush speech in Iowa, 12/1/99)
"They are attacking women and children, aren't they?"
--Only three days before George W. Bush was to deliver a major foreign policy speech, he told a reporter during a phone interview that the U.S. should take action "if the Russian government attacks innocent women and children in Chechnya." When the reporter asked if, in fact, that wasn't already the case, Bush moved the phone away from his mouth and asked this question to his aides nearby.

"I think anybody who doesn't think I'm smart enough to handle the job is underestimating."
