I'm beginnng to wonder if Bush didn't decide to write his own speeches. I mean, really, how the hell do you get to be a speech writer for the
President, if you are incapable of writing intelligently? Shouldn't the President or his P.R. people be making sure that the people writing speeches
are the best one's they can get? Besides, this isn't the first time he's said something this stupid. Usually, though it's not this insulting.
For instance, "And so, in my State of the — my State of the Union — or state — my speech to the nation, whatever you want to call it, speech to the
nation — I asked Americans to give 4,000 years — 4,000 hours over the next — the rest of your life — of service to America." --Bush at Connecticut
Fundraiser, April 9
"They underestimated America. They underestimated our resolve, our determination, our love for freedom. They misunderestimated
the fact that
we love a neighbor in need. They misunderestimated
the compassion of our country. I think they
the will and determination of the commander in chief, too."" --Washington Post, 10/27/01
"After the [Ellis Island citizenship] ceremony, Bush led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance, mistakenly urging them to hold up their right hands
rather than place them on their hearts, as is customary. 'Right hand up, please,' Bush said, prompting most of the group to follow suit, before
catching his mistake. 'Actually right hand on your heart.'" --Reuters, 7/11/01
