I am not sure I like the choice you present. Given the language thing, I would have a hard time saying Kerry's problem is the worse one. Not knowing how to pronounce words, in my experience, is often correlated with not knowing what words mean. The exception is one who reads a ton and never hears the correct pronunciation. But Bush does not make those sorts of mistakes. Still, I go Bush on the issues.
But you're adding a seperate problem. I've never seen Bush make any mistake that would lead me to believe he doesn't know what words mean. Kerry has made mistakes that lead me to believe that he doesn't care what they mean, and that's far worse.
Bush said, "They misunderestimated me." That's not a mispronounciation and it's not a misunderstanding of meaning--it's a ridiculous, non-existent word. That is one example of at least dozens, probably hundreds. I can't believe someone would say that George Bush has a firm grasp of meanings of words.
Heh. Misunderestimated. Are you sure Bush wasn't just messing with you and people like you? You do recognize the irony of that statement, right?Post a Comment
