Explaining the Bush speaking style

I recently listened to the first dunce go on about why we stay in Iraq and the threat of N. Korea. It occurred to me that he "sounds" almost like his handlers must sound as they teach him what his rationale is while coaching him to speak publicly.

That would explain his own condescending, simplistic "explanations." He is subconsciously imitating those who have been teaching him what to say.

I can just see Rove, Cheney, or Condi leaning in before his press conference and explaining to him with a tinge of exasperation: "...So, now listen, we have a number of nations involved with talks about North Korea. Six nations at this time. And that is what we want, got that? A number of nations with a single purpose, one mind. A coalition. And we will talk with those nations. All of them. That is our purpose, remember, to talk with all six of the nations who are concerned about the problem in North Korea. That is what a coalition does. It talks things out and gives support. And it is right that we talk to them all. We are not a nation that wants to go it alone in these matters. We need to emphasize that. We want to cooperate with the world community, O.K.? And so it is…, that is…, remember, we will keep the lines of communication open to all the nations concerned with the North Korean threat. That is just the way it is. We will stand firm on this."

And Bush nods at their prompting and then goes before the cameras to recite. Only not quite so well. A little like Tim the Tool Man Taylor interpreting to his wife what his face-hidden neighbor, Wilson, has told him about some weighty issue on the old sit. com. "Home Improvement."

Stop me before I foam.

Bush's language problems reveal a person who has problems processing words and meaning. The failed policies of the Bushies show that he also has problems processing the meaning and effects of critical information about running a government .

Welcome, counter mag. Loved your snide comment.

But you presented no evidence to refute my "moronic" rantings. Surely if you disagree, you have reasons other than the in-bred, traditional support of your party.
