Memo: Bush Speechwriters
I was watching the president's speech to CENTCOM in Tampa on Wednesday morning. Toward the end of the speech he has this wonderful moment:
"The 24 million people of Iraq have lived too long...odd, long pause...under a violent criminal gang calling itself a government."
Talk about shock and awe. If you know that your speechmaker is not the most verbally adept person, do not write text like that. Are these guys on the Iraqi propaganda staff? Cue up the audio or visual for yourself. It's just after the 22:45 mark.
