A linguistic derivation of Buddhism by the 43rd president of the United States. Philosophy that excessive desire to speak properly will cause suffering that leads to an endless cycle of reincarnation. Excessive conveyance of clear meaning is believed to cause the speaker and listener to focus on the suffering in the world and the desire to change it. As a result, the practioner of Bushism must try to avoid falling into the trap of "making sense," so as to envelop conversants in mystic contemplation of what was really said.
"I am responisible for all my mistakes. And so are you."

"Education is my top priority. However, education is not my top priotrity."

"I believe a military of high morale is conducive to keeping the peace when we find a senior who has to choose between food and medicine-that's not our vision of America."

"The fact that he relies on facts -- says things that are not factual -- are going to undermine his campaign."

I could write a book on this one, and it would be a big as The Bible. What can I say? Most powerful Nation, Biggest Shit-for-brains as Leader...
Bushism examples:

"This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table."

"I want to thank the President and the CEO of Constellation Energy, Mayo Shattuck. That's a pretty cool first name, isn't it, Mayo. Pass the Mayo."

"Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better. "

"We got an issue in America. Too many good docs are gettin' out of business. Too many OB/GYNs aren't able to practice their -- their love with women all across this country."

"I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep on the soil of a friend."

Wow, Brazil is big.

I hear there's rumors on the uh (pause) INTERNETS that we're going to have a draft

I want to thank my friend, Sen. Bill Frist, for joining us today. … He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. (Laughter.) Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me

The most important job is not to be governor, or first lady in my case
