  beatgiant: OK, might as well get this completely out of our systems now.

T Bush: It's clearly a chess ratings report. It's got a lot of numbers in it.

K Regan: I've outlawed the Russian Defense. We begin pawn storming in five minutes.

A Carter: Chess is the moral equivalent of war.

Ford: There is no Russian domination of chess.

T Nixon: I received one more gift after the election. Besides Checkers, the dog, I also got Chess, the cat.

Kennedy: Ich bin Hans Berliner!

  beatgiant: Back on topic again, what would be the follow-up after, say, 16...dxe5 17. dxe5 Qf5 18. Ref1 Qxe5?

Did White's attack have a legitimate basis? Or was it merely an attempt to swindle the opposition with some trumped-up threats?

Unfortunately, no matter how I comment on the game after this, it will sound as if I'm talking about Presidents ;-)

Apr-17-05  Abaduba: LOL.
How about:
Bryan Thomas Jefferson: "All pawns are created equal and endowed with the inalienable right to life, liberty, and two squares on their first move."

J Adams: "Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge of opening theory." Jackson: "The wisdom of man never yet contrived an opening system that would operate with perfect equality."

Apr-23-05  dzanone: Bill Clinton: "I never played chess with that woman."

Hillary Clinton: "It takes a village to promote a pawn."

  beatgiant: Here's a summary of the game (my apologies to readers unfamiliar with the history of presidential gaffes).

7...g4?!
Carter: "I'll whip his hoss!"

8. Bxf4
Bush: "Read my lips, no new piece sacs!"

10. 0-0-0?! (10. e5 instead looks much stronger)
Bush spokesman: "White's king has been certified to be in the castled position. No need for replay after replay after replay."

16. Ne4
Carter: "Killer rabbit!"

16...Nxg2?
(16...dxe5 as suggested in my earlier post would refute White's reckless war deficits.) Carter: "I felt lust in my heart to fork White's queen and rook."

17. Rxh6+
Bush: "Black misunderestimated me!"
(because of 17...Kg8 18. Nf6+ Bxf6 19. Rg6+ Bg7 20. Qh6, followed by 21. Qg7#)

  tpstar: Black had this one in the bag. He established dark square control while consolidating the gambit Pawn with the solid Fischer Defense; he advanced 7 ... g4 to nudge the Nf3 (7 ... Nc6 is also good); he grabbed the Muzio Knight (8 ... gxf3); best of all, he planted a piece on f6 to defend f7 (9 ... Nf6). He even got White to castle long with exactly zero for the piece, then developed the Queenside with tempo (10 ... Bg4/11 ... Qd7). I understand avoiding 12 ... c6?! due to 13. Bxd6, while 12 ... Nc6 (praying for 0-0-0) 13. e5, but 12 ... 0-0?! was the decisive error, giving White attacking chances which worked in short order. 12 ... Rg8 to meet 13. e5 with 13 ... Nxh5 and Black coasts to the finish line. In the KGA, the Black King is far far safer on f8 or ideally 0-0-0 than 0-0.
Nov-09-06  Whitehat1963: This should have been game of the day on Tuesday.
Nov-09-06  hpdrifter: Bush claimed it was his 'right' to win but Carter countered he 'left' a greater legacy...
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: LOL... the election...so oblivious
Jan-08-09  WhiteRook48: why isn't this game of the day?
Mar-02-09  WhiteRook48: also another pun: we drive the CAR into the BUSH
Apr-08-09  WhiteRook48: the BUSH could sac a lot

hahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahaha
my stomach hurt

Oct-17-12  fkahlo: Perhaps Madison (and i am paraphrasing but i will put it in the brackets anyway)

"even if all pawns in an assembly were queens and kings as it, gets bigger it will turn in to a mob"

  Stonehenge: Bush: "peanuts!"

Carter: "shouldn't you be choking on a pretzel?"

  beatgiant: Time to add the latest soon-to-be ex-President.

Barak : "My knight has toured 57 squares... I think one left to go."

"At the end of the game, I'll have more flexibility to offer you a draw."

"If you played an opening, you didn't build that, you didn't make it on your own."

Any other favorite gaffes? Get fired up and ready to post!

  sea7kenp: In the Final Position, I see the following continuation: 17 ... Bxh6, 18 Qxh6+ Kg8, 19 Nf6# (a particularly pretty Move, since it also Forks Black's Queen. I guess Black Sacrificed his King, to save his Queen?)

  beatgiant: The GSA has now ascertained the likelihood that the President is soon to be ex-President, but how to tell a joke such that people will take it humorously but not literally?

Walter Trumpf "Nobody knew chess could be so complicated." But sometimes my best jokes are the jokes I don't make.

  SteinitzLives: Carter: I have lusted in my heart for chess.

Bush: Forget putting food on my family, when is our children learning chess?

Carter: In Plains GA, we removed our ties when Billy played the peanut gambit.

Bush: Read my lips: no new time controls!
