Cheap Shot

This may keep me laughing all day. Words of wisdom from George W. Bush, courtesy of a 2004 campaign speech and Michael Moore:
“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.”

When I first heard it, I thought he said “good dogs.”

Alright, we all know the US president has some problems with coherent speech so maybe it’s unkind to make fun of him. And really, just too easy.

The health care problems in this country aren’t funny. I’ll confess for the sake of honesty that I’m far far far from being the president’s biggest fan, so maybe the fact that I’m politically left is another reason I can (or should not?) mock him happily. As a good will gesture, however, I want to thank him for giving me the chance for some self-righteous laughter this morning. That’s always inspiring. So thanks, Mr. President.

  1. If I remember correctly, the doctor he actually said that about had some serious issues. Which didn’t come up until after the speech. Because the Bush team? They are thorough like that. Yeah, I am not a fan either.

  2. Sara, go to youtube and put George Bush Idiot in the search bar. You’ll be crying for DAYS! He’s one of the world’s finest funny men…when you’ve watched his blooper clips, you might even miss him when he’s gone….lol!

  3. Yeah, he is an easy target. But that was funny. Although, Bill Clinton used to give me quite a bit to laugh about too.

    I am pretty sure I am to the right of you (though not SUPER right), but I am not a fan either. The Constitution is wise… time for someone new.

  4. I thought the quote was pretty funny to begin with, but “dogs” was an inspired addition — even if it wasn’t intentional.

  5. He does have a way with him, doesn’t he?

    We used to have a prime minister with speech issues, mostly due to his accent & a lot of translation misunderstandings. I was pretty floored to discover that IRL he spoke quite clearly, almost no accent. He’d improved his english after 30 years in politics, but realized that people liked him better if he had feet of clay.
