No, I had no problem communicating with Latin American heads of state - though now I do wish I had paid more attention to Latin when I was in high school. -- Vice President Dan Quayle ...Buzz Lukens took that fateful step... -- Vice President Dan Quayle confusing the sexual assaulter/congressman with Astronaut Buzz Aldren. Dan Quayle was in South America and was presented with an empty box that was to contain a gift from a sailing team. He was told that the gift was not ready yet, and that it would be presented to him when they arrived in the United States. Qauyle said: "Ok, I won't open it until then." During the White House Easter Egg Roll of 1991, Quayle signed autographs using only his finger. He had prepared pre-signed cards which his aides handed out while he made signing gestures. This allowed him to move briskly and efficiently through the crowd, said his spokesman. Dan Quale, in April 1991, was concerned that his advisors may be getting out of touch with "Real Americans." In order to combat this, he suggested that they read People magazine. People that are really very wierd can get into sensative positions and have a tremendous impact on history. -- Vice President Dan Quayle I stand by all the misstatements that I've made. -- Vice President Dan Quayle I'm going to be a vice president very much like George Bush was. He proved to be a very effective vice president, perhaps the most effective we've had in a couple of hundred years. -- Vice President Dan Quayle The loss of life will be irreplaceable. -- Vice President Dan Quayle after the San Francisco earthquake ============================================================================ Prince William Sound, Alaska, May 1989 [Remarks to oil spill clean-up workers]: "It's a very valuable function and requirement that you're performing, so have a great day and keep a stiff upper lip." "The President is going to benefit from me reporting directly to him when I arrive." __o o__ o__ o__ o__ _ \<,_ _.>/ _ _.>/ _ _.>/ _ _.>/ _ (_)/ (_) (_) \(_) (_) \(_) (_) \(_) (_) \(_)
