Am I correct in thinking that Bushisms have become a type of humour in their own right (at least in America) and that many Bushisms are not actual sayings by George W. Bush?
Many of the apparently genuine Bushisms are, however, pretty mind-boggling, as for example:
- "For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It's just unacceptable. And we're going to do something about it." - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, May 14, 2001.
- "I'm going to put people in my place, so when the history of this administration is written at least there's an authoritarian voice saying exactly what happened."
- "Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." — Poplar Bluff, Missouri; September 6, 2004
