I Can’t Understand Why Politicians Say the Darndest Things?

I don’t know what to write today. And it sucks! Truly.

Browsed over my favourite blogs on my overcrowded reader reading a post about a scandalous photoshoped picture of Miley Cyrus blowing a big candle (sorry I am not going to give you the link to save you from damnation LOL!); opened news sites crying of Imelda’s poverty and her non-sense appeal to emotion; ate pichi-pichi, dinuguan and puto; turned on my radio; and twitted; unfortunately got no inspiration still. No idea for a post today. I think I got so drained making all those reports and pretending to be one hell of a statistician of our office.

I browsed once again on some sites and found something. Quite a relief but not yet a total blogging satisfaction.

One thing that makes our politicians be voted to office or thrown out of the political radar; remembered as great people or condemned by history as flops; is primarily by the way they communicate to us, the people they serve and should only be serving. As I said on my previous post, a great part of leadership is the way they influence the people.

So I saw some of the infamous lines from the former US President George W. Bush that make him most remembered about by the people and most especially by David Letterman, Stephen Colbert and Jay Leno. I actually haven’t given him yet my farewell message, so this is it. Braced yourselves, take a deep breath. Bombs away!

“One of the very difficult parts of the decision I made on the financial crisis was to use hardworking people’s money to help prevent there to be a crisis.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009 (Wow! Thank then Mr. President for we are actually now in a crisis with our own money on it?!)

“I’m telling you there’s an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That’s the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009 (Imaginary enemies? And all the best to terrorists? For heaven’s sake, this is too much cordiality. Pati sa terorista, pacute pa rin eh.)
“I guess it’s OK to call the secretary of education here ‘buddy.’ That means friend.” –George W. Bush, Philadelphia, Jan. 8, 2009 (Proooot! Lakas ng tama ah! Gin bilog ba?)

“So I analyzed that and decided I didn’t want to be the president during a depression greater than the Great Depression, or the beginning of a depression greater than the Great Depression.” –George W. Bush, Washington D.C., Dec. 18, 2008 (I think you should better use these signs Mr. President < , > ).

“You know, I’m the President during this period of time, but I think when the history of this period is written, people will realize a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over a decade or so, before I arrived in President, during I arrived in President.” –George W. Bush, ABC News interview, Dec. 1, 2008 (Ano raw un? Nakakalbo na ko sa kakaisip what he really means!)

“I’ve been in the Bible every day since I’ve been the president.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Nov. 12, 2008 (So, that means eight years with the bible? Ayos, kapag nagging president ka pala eh napapabasa ka ng bible. Heard that GMA?)

“I want to share with you an interesting program — for two reasons, one, it’s interesting, and two, my wife thought of it — or has actually been involved with it; she didn’t think of it. But she thought of it for this speech.” –George W. Bush, discussing a company that improves access to clean water in Africa, Washington D.C., Oct. 21, 2008 (Ano na naman raw? Adik talaga eh!)

“I didn’t grow up in the ocean — as a matter of fact — near the ocean — I grew up in the desert. Therefore, it was a pleasant contrast to see the ocean. And I particularly like it when I’m fishing.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Sept. 26, 2008 (Bangag lang yung nakakita ng ocean sa desyerto noh! Punta kang Manila Ocean Park)

“Wait a minute. What did you just say? You’re predicting $4-a-gallon gas? … That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Feb. 28, 2008 (Ano ba ang alam mo kasi!?)

“I want to tell you how proud I am to be the President of a nation that — in which there’s a lot of Philippine-Americans. They love America and they love their heritage. And I reminded the President that I am reminded of the great talent of the — of our Philippine-Americans when I eat dinner at the White House.” –George W. Bush, referring to White House chef Cristeta Comerford while meeting with Filipino President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Washington, D.C., June 24, 2008 (Chef Cristeta, lagyan mo nga racumin pagkain nyan ng magkakilanlan kayo!)


I hope making you read over those lines has kept your sanity intact inside your skull lest you sue me and make me pay your medical bills and psychological tests. Georgie is only one of the so many politicians who got caught from their very own words. But hey, I really don’t know if dear George is always drunk or have some speech problems or his thoughts does not coincide with his words or he is simply that stupid. And I would rather believe on the last one. How about you?

Going local, who would ever forget Gov. Joey Salceda’s remarks on GMA’s luck being a bitch, but one lucky bitch. It is no wonder that GMA loves generals. Kaboom!!! Kaboom!!! LOL!

I think I’m gonna post here next time all those dardnest lines from our very own politicians.

On to you now. Which among those lines of former US President George W. Bush you liked so much? Do you think that he should make a copyright out of his infamous lines to earn some more cash? Why do you think that politicians say the darndest things?
