Six Sigma is a business management strategy, originally developed by Motorola, that today enjoys wide-spread application in many sectors of industry. Six Sigma seeks to identify and remove the causes of defects and errors in manufacturing and business processes.It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Black Belts" etc.) who are experts in these methods.
Origin and meaning of the term "six sigma process": The following outlines the statistical background of the term Six Sigma. Sigma (the lower-case Greek letter σ) is used to represent the standard deviation (a measure of variation) of a statistical population. The term "six sigma process" comes from the notion that if one has six standard deviations between the mean of a process and the nearest specification limit, there will be practically no items that fail to meet the specifications.This is based on the calculation method employed in a process capability study.

George Bush is best person to call this, if someone is going to do it. He is viewed with distaste within his own country, not to mention actively despised as well, and throughout the world. If he's such an egomaniac to not understand how poorly this move will be received should he declare himself "King George" he's stupider than I thought. This will bring about a massive revolt, and bloodshed.
