    Uhhh... check your sources. I know for a fact that at least one is not W Bush.

    "A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls." was Dan Quayle

    As for this quote: "The problem with the French is that they don't have a word for entrepreneur."

    I actually agree with it. While upfront it makes no sense and is pretty stupid, the French are known for their lack of incentive for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. It's also very difficult to obtain business licenses in the country resulting in a brain drain of innovators and business leaders to other countries.

    Nevertheless, sad but funny quotes.

    Entrepreneur is a French word that is why that quote is funny and makes sense.

    I am sure you probably already knew that though and your thoughts are operating on a deeper psychological wavelength to mine and there must be something more deep and profound to that quote that I have missed.

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing.

    LOL @ this.......

    Any of y'all laughing at Bush over those quotes have never been to the South.

    That way of talking doesn't mean stupid, its just how we talk down here.

    If you'll read those in restless' post, it sounds more like he's getting nerves and crossing his words on the spot. None of those quotes actually said anything *dumb*, but apparently making fun of the guy because of his wording has become the vogue.

    You seem to miss the idea.

    I suppose you can speak perfectly and completely articulately off the cuff, each and every time, with millions of reporters watching you and people on the Internet ready to bust your ass over any slip.

    That's not the stuff I'm talking about.

    I'm talking about the way he structures his sentences, and the way he organizes his thoughts. Its not anything foreign, as far as I'm concerned.
