WASHINGTON (AP) – President George W. Bush offered up a new entry for his catalogue of “Bushisms” on Thursday, declaring that his administration will “never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people.”
Bush misspoke as he delivered a speech at the signing ceremony for a $417-billion defence spending bill.
“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.”
No one in Bush’s audience of military brass or Pentagon chiefs reacted.
