New best line of last night's debate
I've been chuckling over Bush's "Need some wood?" quip in response to Kerry's telling him he owned a timber business, personally, simply because Kerry's charge was actually verifiably true and if there's any funny bone in the collective press corps then the prez is going to get his ass fact-checked into an "invented the Internet" moment. But there's another debate Bushism I haven't seen the blogosphere point out yet.

Hat tip to kuangning, who caught a subtle but telling Freudian slip here:

Oh, and near the end?
BUSH: (...) The truth of that matter is, if you listen carefully, Saddam would still be in power if [Kerry] were the president of the United States, and the world would be a lot better off.
Emphasis mine, of course.
... Mr. President, I couldn't agree more.
(Double-checked against the official Associated Press transcript. He said it.)

Current Mood: amusedamused

I thought he was trying to say that Kerry thought the world would be better off. But our President is so damn hard to understand sometimes, I honestly have no what he might have meant.

Yeah, those things tend to slip through Bush's mind. I don't think he meant to make that a compliment, but there you go, he doesn't mean to say a lot of things. Like how he started that comment regarding the media...
