This is just pathetic. Slate is resorting to Bushisms that were not said by President Bush. It seems that Bushchimpler is not giving them much material these days, so Slate just attributes others' mistakes to him. Reality-based community, indeed.

Eugene Volokh:

Yup, it seems like today's Bushism wasn't said by President Bush, but rather by European Council President Jean-Claude Juncker (who is also the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, hence the honorific that President Bush gave him) — or, I suspect, by the translator. I checked all the transcripts I could find on LEXIS, and none attributed this to Bush; all attributed it to Juncker, except one that attributed to an otherwise unidentified "Scheffer," likely an error.
