With Clarity and Conviction

At a signing ceremony for a $417 BILLION defence spending bill, Bush said, ‘Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.’

To quote CNN, ‘No one in Bush’s audience of military brass or Pentagon chiefs reacted.’

One of his handlers later stressed that it was obviously a misstatement, proving that everyone–‘even the most straightforward and plainspoken people’–have their gaffes. ‘…the American people know this president speaks with clarity and conviction’.
