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

  whiteshark: I couldn't blame Bush here.
Oct-17-12  fkahlo: <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!

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.">

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"

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!

  perfidious: Carter was even so bold as to confess his sins in a <Playboy> interview.

  HeMateMe: Carter might have been too decent and honest a man to work in D.C....

*************

Same game, different pun?:

<Air Force Won>

I'm thinking Bush I was an aviator who was shot down in the Pacific during WWII.

Jimmy Carter was a navel officer, an engineer on a nuclear aircraft carrier.

The different branches of the service often compete against each other in sports, so...if Bush wins the above game then Air Force Won! Of course the presidents all fly Air Force, One, the very special plane.

Aug-06-21  Stanco: You're always one move away from hero to zero.
16...dxe5 saves the day.
Aug-06-21  catlover: This was a fun GOTD. I enjoyed the game, but I enjoyed everyone's humorous posts even more.

Bush was in the Navy, not the Air Force.
