These George Bushisms and Bush Speak were taken from various sources such as Presidential Speak and the big list on Slate.com. A Complete list of Bushisms are updated frequently by Jacob Weisberg on Slate. We will try and update these as well but Slate's list will always be the most current for the ones they find. Even though we believe that actions speak louder than words and one should always judge a politician by his deeds and actions and not his staged, media manipulated performances, we also felt that a four-page list this large and impressive speaks too loudly about the ignorance of the man. On our list you will find misuse of tense and other bad grammar, inconsistent thought, unintended thought, mangled words, made up words, and many other mistakes of speech. We couldn't make this stuff up if we tried. Enjoy!
