quote of the day--directional difficulties
"And...it's gettin' worse. That's what people have gotta understand up there in Washington, or over there in Washington, down there in Washington, wherever--thought I was in Crawford for a minute."
George W. Bush
January 16, 2003
Referring to increases in the cost of medical malpractice insurance. Speaking in Scranton, Pennsylvania (north and slightly east of Washington, D.C.).
I suppose I can forgive this one, considering the President does do a great deal of traveling. However, you have to admit that the quote doesn't really make Bush sound like the brightest man on the planet, or at least not the man with the best sense of direction.
