President Bush visited the area last week. I didn't go to see him, not having been invited to the invitation-only gathering, but the local newspaper reported that, in typical Bush fashion, he made a few blunders and dropped a few malapropisms. For example:
"My job is a decision-making job. And as a result, I make a lot of decisions."
He referred to the building he was visiting as an S-CHIP corporation," even though it was actually a "subchapter S corporation."
Referring to his advisers, he said, "...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.'"
He also said, "The politics is coming around the corner here in 2008."
And, "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, it - they build 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."
The President's words speak for themselves, so I won't even comment.
