Remember, I mentioned I received the day calendar of "Bushisms" - quotes from some of the most interesting remarks ever made perhaps, by our illustrious, well-spoken current president. And, because I am loving this little desktop day calendar, I'm giving you a bit of a "head's up" of quips and quotes by GWB so you can start the new year off just right! Yesterday, I listed in my entry for the day, the quotes for January 1st and 2nd. Today, in keeping the momentum going there, I now give you the quotes for January 3rd and 4th! Hope you enjoy them as much as I am!
January 3rd - "We need an energy bill that encourages consumption." (Trenton, New Jersey, Septrember 23, 2002)
January 4th - "Whether you're here by birth, or whether you're in America by choice, you contribute to the vitality of our life. And for that, we are grateful." (Washington, D.C.; May 17, 2002)
Oh my! Now I am on a roll here! I can't let this opportunity pass by without also giving you the quote for January 5th!
"The administration I'll bring is a group of men and women who are focused on what's best for America, honest men and women, decent men and women, women who will see service to our country as a great privilege and who will not stain the house." (Des Moines, Iowa; January 18, 2000)
I have to confess that of these three quotes, the one for January 5th is the one I like the best. But I have to say too that I am a bit confused by the last line there - what can that mean "Who will not stain the house" - just can't figure that one out, can you? But then, rarely have I found myself able to figure out much of what he says.
Feel free to illuminate this bit of a quagmire I'm in with that last line.
And with that parting thought, I think it is best I head off to bed!
