Bush-speak: frightening drivel

For seven long years Bush has been proving the worst fears people had for his suitability for the office.

“You know, when you give a man more money in his pocket _ in this case, a woman _ more money in her pocket to expand a business, they build new buildings. And when somebody builds a new building, somebody has got to come and build the building.

“And when the building expanded, it prevented (sic) additional opportunities for people to work. Tax cuts matter. I’m going to spend some time talking about it,” the president said.

He offered a pointed description of his job.

“My job is a decision-making job. And as a result, I make a lot of decisions,” the president said.

He elaborated on that point later.

“I delegate to good people. I always tell Condi Rice, `I want to remind you, Madam Secretary, who has the Ph.D. and who was the C student. And I want to remind you who the adviser is and who the president is.’

“I got a lot of Ph.D.-types and smart people around me who come into the Oval Office and say, `Mr. President, here’s what’s on my mind.’ And I listen carefully to their advice. But having gathered the device (sic), I decide, you know, I say, `This is what we’re going to do.’ And it’s `Yes, sir, Mr. President.’ And then we get after it, implement policy.”
