Is Bush Articulate When Callous?

The New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman pointed something out today that gives us food for thought:

Mark Crispin Miller, the author of “The Bush Dyslexicon,” once made a striking observation: all of the famous Bush malapropisms — “I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family,” and so on — have involved occasions when Mr. Bush was trying to sound caring and compassionate.

By contrast, Mr. Bush is articulate and even grammatical when he talks about punishing people; that’s when he’s speaking from the heart. The only animation Mr. Bush showed during the flooding of New Orleans was when he declared “zero tolerance of people breaking the law,” even those breaking into abandoned stores in search of the food and water they weren’t getting from his administration.

It’s a little scary, don’t you think?

One response to “Is Bush Articulate When Callous?”

  1. Being someone who is around dyslexic people, it is no excuse to sound retarded. It’s Bushes policies that make him sound retarded to me. Check out political leaders with Dyslexia: Winston Churchill, Nelson Rockefeller, George Washington. It’s actually fun to see how many famous people do live with this
