George W. Bush....the Word Master...LOL
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 01:06 PM by glarius
Have you noticed how poor old George is soooo proud when he uses a word that he considers to be a BIG word? It is so pathetic, (you almost feel sorry for him), I stress almost. For instance, when he's making one of his glorious :sarcasm: speeches. He will say something like...."Americans are intrinsically good people." He'll stumble over intrinsically, but with emphasis on the word, in such a way that seems to be saying "see, I DO know big words!" Almost like a small child showing his mother what a good job he has done! He is so transparent. It's hilarious!

Oh well....hang in there America, you've only got about a year and a half to go!

2. What gets me is that he graduated from Yale.
I know Yale graduates, and they are all polished and articulate. Bush, by comparison, sounds like someone who dropped out of a poorly performing high school. I hope that Yale rethinks their policy of admitting children of alumni that show no academic potential. Bush's spot could have been given to someone who would have used the education they got for bettering mankind.

13. Bush is the living, breathing embodiment of how a legacy admission policy can be truly fucked.

15. Yes!
And do you remember a few years ago, a news report was released showing dumya and John Kerry had received practically the same grades in college?
My freeper boss thought that was great. "See, I told you Kerry is no smarter than Bush", he says.
IS THERE ANYONE BESIDES FREEPERS WHO BELIEVE DUMYA EARNED HIS GRADES????? x(

21. and Harvard!
I keep thinking of all the hardworking, intelligent people I know who would have gotten so much more out of the experience than he evidently did.

22. Yeah, as a C student.
Getting into Yale's the hard part. Any brain dead mouth breather can graduate from it.

3. It is so easy to imagine what the coaching and tutoring sessions
must be like and all the crossed fingers.

4. Yes, kind of like the SOTU address a few years back
when speaking on the WMDs, and bringing up the yellow cake uranium from Niger. Notice his speech writers didn't put "Niger" in his address. You know they would have been sweating over that one big time.

14. I had to tutor a football player in college.
He didn't know the basics of history-to me the course was a snap, as it covered things I'd already learned in high school. The player was shocked when:

1. I had no idea who he was and wasn't swooning over him

2. I insisted that he learn the material and quizzed him on it

3. I refused to do his work for him.

I entered university at age 17, so I was very likely younger than him as well. I did this my freshman year, first semester.

17. I think our 'face' President - stand-in for Cheney - decided early on
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 03:07 PM by higher class
that all he needed to learn was deal making. Someone guided him through the concept of getting a Harvard Business School degree. Also, cheerleading was also probably considered of value. Skull and Bones at Yale. He learned all he thought he needed since he is an admitted 'doer', not a thinker or deep thinker. We got all he meant everyone to get - deals.

6. Yes, and sometimes he actually leans forward when he says the
big word, then leans back, looking even more smug and self-satisfied, if possible, than usual.

8. And when he says them, he sort of grins and pauses.

accomplishment.

What a moron.

19. yes, that little pause-smirk thing he does ...
I swear, anybody claiming to be able to do an impression of Dubya had better be able to nail that, in my book.

12. It grates on my nerves when he uses the new word he learned - just for
the current speech - and follows up by explaining the meaning of the word. :eyes: Little Georgie assumes that because his vocabulary is at the kindergarten level, ours is as well.

20. "In other words ..." (as many as 19 times in one speech!)

16. "people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble -- that means not tell the truth."
This one is my favorite.

23. It's part of his psychopathy, to wit: HE will "command" the words in whatever way he wants to,
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 04:02 PM by WinkyDink
including mispronouncing them and/or using them incorrectly. When he DOES have command of a word, he is bizarrely proud of that feat, as though he has wrangled it and won, and, in his megalomania, speaks it in a way that implies we DON'T know it.

Bush, in short, has the same deep-seated---and insane---contempt for syntax and language (pretty much de rigueur for liars) as he does for laws, people, reality, morality, and truth.
