Serving eight years as President of the United States of America, George W. Bush brought us plenty of laughs with his many funny quotes, gaffes and other Bush-isms. What made things even funnier is that Bush often was clueless of how idiotic his words came out. Whether he was talking to the press, a large group of people, a fellow world leader or on the campaign trail, George W. Bush had a way with words, and his way was nothing short of Bushspeak.

This hilarious collection of the dumbest and maniacal utterances by Bush includes classic Bush bloopers and statements that would make even the best comedians jealous. If nothing else, Bush gives us plenty of stress relief with his often interesting choice of words.

Though he may be one of the best when it comes to providing us with funny quotes, he certainly is not the first president to do so and will not be the last. For other funnies, look to the president before him, for Bill Clinton-isms, or the president after him, for Barack Obama-isms.
