Another Side to Bush

I enjoyed these two articles. The first is from Associated Press, and the second I read on the blog C.Orthodoxy. They describe a President Bush that many of us don’t get to see: Bush the inquisitive and serious thinker.

Analysis: Bush’s personality shapes his legacy
“And you say you don’t have time to read…”

Note: I welcome anti-Bush comments, but I probably won’t respond to them. I’m not in the mood right now to get into a debate on Bush or his policies. Maybe another time! Right now, I just want to share something that I enjoyed.

    So why didn’t he show it where it actually counted, if this is true?

    Oh, I don’t think Bush came across as dumb when he discussed policy. He could handle himself pretty well in an interview–not as well as Cheney and Bill Clinton, mind you, but fairly decently. But his mangling of words didn’t help him that much.

    My coworker had a calendar this year. Its title was “bushisms”.

    Every day he would pull off a date, and we’d all have a laugh at the latest one. Then another coworker would start doing it in the style of Bush… and he wasn’t that bad. And then he’d do it in the style of an asian guy, and then we all sat down and got to work.

    The funny thing is, the calendar went to Jan. 20th.

    The calendar people should’ve added quayle-isms and palin-isms.
