Funny George W. Bush Quotes

It's been many years now since George W. Bush was the president of the United States. He's had many achievements during his term but he is often remembered for mostly 2 things. First, initiating the Iraqi War of 2003; and second, his rather interesting way with words, more popularly known as "Bushisms".

Bushisms 101: Sometimes, George W. Bush likes to point out the obvious.
