Bushisms on DVD

Bushisms on DVDBushisms: The DVD
You’ve Read The Book, Now Watch The Real Thing on DVD

You thought it couldn’t get any better than reading the President’s words and finding new ways
to decipher what he was trying to say, but failed to communicate. Well now imagine hearing and
seeing what you are reading. That’s right, Bushisms is now on DVD.

Watch over 60 minutes of George W. Bush’s accidental wit and wisdom. See for yourself the
serious determination in which W repeats the same wrong word time after time until he actually
gives his made-up word a real meaning. And so goes the development of “The George W. Bush
Dictionary” of words and phrases added to the American vocabulary by our speech-challenged,
43rd President. Words like “misunderestimate” and “subliminable.”

Your host on this journey to destroy the English language is Brian Unger with special
commentary and grammatical interpretation by Slate Magazine’s Jacob Weisberg, Al Franken,
and Gary Trudeau’s “Doonesbury.” Bushisms includes actual footage from the President’s
public speeches, photos ops, interviews, and random encounters to produce the funniest
collection of misstatements ever on video. Animated shorts by Chris “Sketchboy” Routly and
music videos by The George W. Bush Singers add to the entertainment by interpreting the
President’s greatest oratory moments.

“What’s it like when you can’t find your WMDs or your ABCs,” asks Brian Unger in the
opening scenes of the show. “What’s it like when what you meant to say is exactly what you
said?” Join Brian for an hour of exploration to see how easy words become so hard for President

The direct-to-DVD project Bushisms is based on the popular series of books of the same name
featuring the accidental wit and wisdom of President George W. Bush. This program is not
rated, but suitable for all audiences and includes W’s commentary and segments on “Families
and Children,” “Mr. Bush’s Neighborhood,” and the “Top 10 Bushisms.”

This is a true collection of classic comments taken from public speeches and remarks given to
Americans around the country with Mr. Bush’s thoughts on the economy, the war in Iraq, our
relationship with other nations and his presidency. Bush’s observations and advice include such
memorable soundbites as:

 “It’s clearly a budget. It’s got a lot of numbers in it.”
 “Rarely is the questions asked, is our children learning.”
 “Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.”
 “I know how hard it for you to put food on your family.”

In a season of one million speeches, don’t miss your chance to bring the real George W. Bush
into your home. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but the actual video speaks millions
of them.
