    "America is indispensable for the world" -george -bush

    By all means enter the thread title as a Google search.

    No results found for "America is indispensable for the world" -george -bush.

    The only person recorded as using the expression is George W Bush.

    George W Bush was claiming they were the words of Winston Churchill. They weren't.

    George W Bush is still just as misunderestimated as ever. What a wally.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Next to Trump, he looks like Lincoln. From Land of the Free to Land of the Freaks...

    Applies to the UK too, at present.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    From what I could find, the notion came from the Clinton Era of the 90's
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    That it was a quote from Winston Churchill? An instance or example of someone saying that would be useful, I don't know of it.

    IT was apparently dreamed up as a slogan after the Cold was was declared officially over. Where bush got it, may never be known. One of his illustrious speech writers, no doubt.

    I am not sure what the point is, of going back to the past to badmouth Baby Bush, now, unless it is to show that Donald is not the ONLY American President guilty of the Mis-quoted word.
