Thursday, 13 September 2001 : "Bush"11:08am: Gee, Bush is actually taking questions right now. Good. As clumsy as he is on his feet (and he's actually standing in the Oval Office), he's much better than he is when reading his speechwriters' vague, weak language.
Bush's remarks from yesterday:
This is an enemy who preys on innocent and unsuspecting people, then runs for cover, but it won't be able to run for cover forever.If I say something three times that only needed saying once, I appear to be filling time.
If a speech is already short but then I pad it by repeating myself twice over, I appear to not have anything to say.
If my point was made sufficiently with one statement, repeating myself twice more will mean that I want to look like I have a lot to say when I don't actually have much to say at all.
