One word: Nucular

Can someone explain how Bush's mind works that he could continue to mispronounce this important word?

Does he know it's wrong, but just can't say it right?

Is he stubborn about it?

Has anyone told him?

It's just weird!

Lets see. There is Fox News, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS. Now if I want to become a talking head expert and make big cash which position should I espouse? By the way, why aren't the major networks, and this thread, also commenting on his statement that the Press is not doing our soldiers any favors?

My father use to say bum for bomb. He new the difference, his mind just didn't cooperate when he used the word bomb. When I was growing up it took me a while to figure out what good it would do to drop bums on the North Koreans.

I have learned from my kids that there are several words I miss pronounce. Wrestling for one. So I guess I can cut the President a little slack on this one.

Yeah, but if you had to say "wrestling" on camera in a speech that would literally be heard around world, wouldn't you practice it until you got it right?

I had a roommate from Hong Kong would just could not say the word "flower" correctly. He could say "Fa" and he could say "Lower" but he couldn't put them together. But he wanted to, so he practiced, "fa - lower - fa - lower" closer and closer together until he could do it.

My Korean real estate agent in SF could not say "Ginger Lynn", so he kept getting "Gina Lynn" movies instead. Lucky lisper.

I don't think so because Old George W is from the east and his family only migrated to Texas only after the varmint was already born.

The varmit was born in New Haven Connecticut.

Do not blame his use of the English language on Texas and the GREAT WILLIE NELSON.

GOD BLESS
