Description

'That's just the way he speaks.' so said a Bush aide after the President had scuttled treaty talks with North Korea because 'they haven't met their commitments, when he actually meant that they might not meet them in the future. Jacob Weisberg can conclude only one thing: Bushisms are now defining US national policy. If you thought his campaign-trail gaffes were hilarious in GEORGE W. BUSHISMS, just wait until you see the mangled phrasings, positive-negative confusions, spoonerisms and malapropisms of his first year. MORE GEORGE W. BUSHISMS proves that George W. Bush holds a place of honour in the pantheon of our most verbally-challenged presidents. Here is just a sample of the new Bushisms: 'You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.' - Feb 21, 2001 'The suicide bombings have increased. There's just too many of them.' - Aug 15, 2001 You saw the president yesterday. I thought he was very forward-leaning, as they say in diplomatic nuanced circles.' Referring to his meeting with President Vladimir Putin July 23, 2001
