President George W. Bush will leave behind a legacy of Bushisms, the label stamped on the commander in chief's original speaking style. Some of the president's more notable malaprops and mangled statements:

• "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." — September 2000, explaining his energy policies at an event in Michigan.

• "Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?" — January 2000, during a campaign event in South Carolina.

• "They misunderestimated the compassion of our country. I think they misunderestimated the will and determination of the commander in chief, too." — Sept. 26, 2001, in Langley, Va. Bush was referring to the terrorists who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks.

• "There's no doubt in my mind, not one doubt in my mind, that we will fail." — Oct. 4, 2001, in Washington. Bush was remarking on a back-to-work plan after the terrorist attacks.

• "It would be a mistake for the United States Senate to allow any kind of human cloning to come out of that chamber." — April 10, 2002, at the White House, as Bush urged Senate passage of a broad ban on cloning.

• "I want to thank the dozens of welfare-to-work stories, the actual examples of people who made the firm and solemn commitment to work hard to embetter themselves." — April 18, 2002, at the White House.

How nice that the worst president ever gets to have his stupidity described as his "original speaking style." To me, he's simply a moron. If it speaks like a moron, behaves like a moron, and grins and smirks like a moron, it is definitely a MORON...and Bush fits all the criteria.

But keep the thread going by all means, anniefey...At least we have one of the most intelligent Presidents being sworn in on January 20, and we can wave goodbye to President Bush forever. After that, Bush will simply be referred to as "the former president." He's left his muddy footprints all over the Constitution, the White House, and the entire planet...and it will take decades to clean it all up...if it ever is.
