Bush Speaks

4 10 2007

The Huffington Post has a great article about an event they sub-titled: Audience Endures 76 Minutes of Unscripted Bush Speak.

And as you might guess, there are at least a few gems:

My job is a decision-making job. And as a result, I make a lot of decisions.

I delegate to good people. I always tell Condi Rice, `I want to remind you, Madam Secretary, who has the Ph.D. and who was the C student. And I want to remind you who the adviser is and who the president is.

I got a lot of Ph.D.-types and smart people around me who come into the Oval Office and say, `Mr. President, here’s what’s on my mind.’ And I listen carefully to their advice. But having gathered the device (sic), I decide, you know, I say, `This is what we’re going to do.’ And it’s `Yes, sir, Mr. President.’ And then we get after it, implement policy.

I’ll be glad to answer some questions from you if you got any.  If not, I can keep on blowing hot air until the time runs out.
