Terrible!!  The man's on his way out and you make fun of him.  We shouldn't be so quick to judge and. . . . . . . . . . .

You missed a few:

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we.  They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

"I'm the decider, and I decide what is best.  And what's best is for (somebody who just resigned in disgrace) to remain as the (something important of something important)."

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

"As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured."

"Major combat operations in (some occupied country) have ended."

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

"For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings.  And, folks, this is unacceptable.  And we're going to do something about it."

"I hear there's rumors on the Internets that we're going to have a draft."

"Tribal sovereignty means that; it's sovereign.  I mean, you're a--you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity."

"You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test."

"We spent a lot of time talking about Africa, as we should.  Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease."


Don't worry moderators, this post is not about politics.


It's about literacy.
