“It seemed like to me they based some of their decisions on the word of—and the allegations—by people who were held in detention, people who hate America, people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble—that means not tell the truth.” — George W. Bush on a report from Amnesty International that was critical of U.S. detention facilities. Washington, D.C., May 31, 2005

“I think younger workers—first of all, younger workers have been promised benefits the government—promises that have been promised, benefits that we can’t keep. That’s just the way it is.” — George W. Bush in Washington, D.C., May 4, 2005

Does anyone understand what he just said? Does Bush understand what he just said?

If nothing else, the U.S. President is always good for a laugh. Or two. Sometimes three.
