‘œBrownie, you’™re doing a heckuva job’

Yup, most memorable phrase by Bush according to Paul J. J. Payack of Global Language Monitor (there’™s more on their site, too)

Paul JJ Payack, president of Global Language Monitor, a nonprofit group that monitors language use, says Bush’™s statement in support of the then-director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency may be remembered for years to come.

‘œThe ‘Brownie’™ quote leads our 2005 list of Bushisms ‘” memorable phrases or new words coined by the president,’ Payack said, adding that Bush may be the foremost White House creator of new words, citing such past efforts as ‘œmisunderestimate’ (to seriously underestimate) and ‘œembetter’ (to make emotionally better).
