Portion of Remarks by President Bush at the Radio-Television Correspondents Association 57th Annual Dinner:

"Then there is my most famous statement: "Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning." Let us analyze that sentence for a moment. If you're a stickler, you probably think the singular verb "is" should have been the plural "are." But if you read it closely, you'll see I'm using the intransitive plural subjunctive tense. So the word "is" are correct. (Laughter and applause.)

And you know what? Life goes on. My wife and my daughters still love me. Our military still protects our shores. Americans still get up and go to work. People still go out and have fun, as we're doing tonight.

I don't think it's healthy to take yourself too seriously. But what I do take seriously is my responsibility as President to all the American people. It's the office I hold. And that is what I came tonight to tell you."
