More Coming Soon

More coming soon.

But in the meantime, I'll leave you with one thought:

Why does President Bush always sound like English is not his native language? I am not talking about his accent, or the Southern verbal tics that have (over time) somehow made “nuculur” an acceptable alternative pronunciation of “nuclear.” No, I am talking about his enunciation (or his challenges therewith), and his very awkward flow and timing when reading perfectly average sentences from a teleprompter.

Our president sounds like a 3rd grader, still learning to read, and in these instances listening to and watching him undermines the credibility he seeks (desperately) to project. For a presidency in which appearance is everything (think of that “Mission Accomplished” banner), it is all the more ironic.
