'Innovative, Resourceful' -- and Quotable

August 06, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

President Bush offered up a new entry for the catalog of "Bushisms" at the signing ceremony for a Defense spending bill in Washington.

"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."

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Bush's misstatement "just shows even the most straightforward and plain-spoken people misspeak."
