I wanted to create a thread to showcase Mr. Bush's most idiotic statements.
"What's interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some 'isms' that occasionally pop up. One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism. So if you study the '20s, for example, there was an American-first policy that said, 'Who cares what happens in Europe?' ... And there was an immigration policy that I think during this period argued we had too many Jews and too many Italians, therefore we should have no immigrants. And my point is that we've been through this kind of period of isolationism, protectionism and nativism. I'm a little concerned that we may be going through the same period. I hope that these 'isms' pass."
"I'm really concerned about isolationism, protectionism, and nativism."
"Freedom is the design of our Maker and the longing of every human soul...Freedom is the dream...of every person in every nation in every age."
"Nine decades ago Tomas Masaryk proclaimed Czechoslovakia's independence based on the 'ideals of democracy'"
"So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every culture and nation so we may end tyranny in our world."
"The war we fight today is...the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century. On the one side are those who believe in the values of freedom and democracy. On the other side are those driven by the values of tyranny and extremism."
"Is we learning?"
"They hate us for our freedom..."
