Quote:

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we," Bush said.

"They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

Hrmmm, maybe if you think about what they can do to harm you, it allows you to try and protect against those actions.

Now maybe he did not orginally intend to say that but it does work. Semantics is a tricky subject which a great deal of left leaning people just cannot grasp.

^^^^Exactly d33p.

It may not have been worded perfectly, but it's easy to see what he meant. 

I have no problem laughing at politicians, or anyone for that matter, for what they say.  Those quotes by Kerry were funny as well. 

I'm just wondering if any of you are calling Bush a retard have ever mispoke.  When speaking don't you ever interpret what you'll say one way but when it comes out of your mouth others interpret it completely differently?  When nearly everything you say goes on record, imagine how many times you might look foolish.

I'll even tell one of mine.

We were at a meeting for the company I work for and all the managers and higher-ups were there.  I don't even remember what it was we were talking about before the meeting started but it was something that I wanted put my two cents in.  Have you ever noticed how you sometimes talk differently around different groups of people?  Using words or slang that you might not otherwise use?

When it got time for me to say what I wanted, I wanted to reference it to my friend.  I had the entire conference table's attention.  I began to say "My boy Adam...." then decided "boy" wouldn't be appropriate around these people so I switched it to friend.  Of course this all happened in a fraction of a second and it came out "My boyfriend Adam...."  My eyes got really big and I just froze.  Everybody had this blank look on their faces.  Many of them didn't know me well and when I tried to explain, I think I just made it worse.  :crazy:

My argument is more than good enough to hold up in a court of law. The only problem i have is with the people who bring this trivial crap up. The man gives thousands of speeches, it is likely he will slip words now and again. All presidents do it.

It sounded like you were trying to say that he meant to say what he said. If that's what you're saying then I think you're hopelessly lost.

Yes, some people will get on Bush for simple things(like me) but some people(like you) will defend him til the bitter end just for ego's sake.

In this case though, he was just being retarded. He has a team of writers for his speeches, doesn't he?

Plus, Freudian slips don't work like that.

Note: not disagreeing or agreeing with anything said here, just poking holes

What he said was correct and made sense. How does that made him retarded? Please explain it to me.

I'm pretty sure those Kerry quotes were fake, if we're thinking of the same ones. I've heard them said before, and they were at the time attributed to Bush

Funny though, with the way the war on drugs is going, I believe Bush's quote wholeheartedly. And from the looks of Kerry finally speaking his mind, things are going to be even worse with Kerry than they are now

I'm sorry. I was distracted by this ^^^^. I've never seen anyone, in all seriousness, try to actually make sense of a Bushism. I was taken a back.

Why do computer companies hire hackers to find exploits and new ways to hack into their systems? So they can fix/patch/prevent this from occurring in a real life situation. It is similar in homeland security. By thinking of say "well they can use a dirty bomb or chem/bio attack" we could put measures in place to either prevent this or make the outcome more manageable. Why? Because they thought of ways to harm America. Now this is just a simple version but it proves what Bush was saying to be correct and since he was at the signing of a defense bill very relevant.

It sounded like Bush is saying "We, The Bush Administration, also never stop thinking of new ways to harm our country and our people."

Maybe just the intelligence of the people listening to Bush's speeches should be increased.

no, the way Bush said that, what Learyfan said is correct. Grammatically, that is what Bush said. Besides which, they should be anticipating the other side's attacks - ie, using their mindset and tools. Saying that the US is trying to find new ways to harm its own people is 100% useless to EFFECTIVE counter-terrorist defense, if such defense is used

Tom Kean of the 9/11 commission stated that our biggest intelligence failure was a lack of imagination. I assumed at the time that he was referring to our inability to imagine the methods that could be used. We just kept looking for the usual suspects and their usual methods. Got any more context for that quote? Because this could very easily have been what he was referring to.
