Don't you get it? The point here is that anyone in such a high position should know the name of such a high magnitude disaster. Since Laura obviously

word but said every other word just fine.
The people on the affirmative side of this thread are people that note any and all leadership of a country, and would drop their jaws no matter who
in such high office
did this. Even if it did turn out to be a speech blunder, it is worth discussion. You can't just dismiss this.
You should stop trying to turn this around. Don't bring up other people, we are not talking about other people. We are talking about one person here,
Are you familiar with disinformation tactics? Everyone should be. Here are a few you are using:
"Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used to show the topic as being
critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the 'How dare you!' gambit."
"Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could be taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias.
This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive."
"Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or
controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can 'argue'
with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues."
Don't be such a disinformant. home.datawest.net...
