January 3, 2009 - President George W. Bush will leave behind a legacy of Bushisms, the label stamped on the Commander-in-Chief's original speaking style. Some of the president's more notable malaprops and mangled statements:

"Too many good docs are getting out of business. Too many OB/GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." _ September 6, 2004, at a rally in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
