Bush Is Against Us

Posted by clubsodaandsalt on August 9, 2004

So this gaffe was pretty amusing. Here’s the thing – is it just me, or does that particular error not seem like Bush misspeaking? I mean, given the way the line was written, it would have been clumsy for him to say “and we never stop thinking of ways to protect yada yada” as opposed to “so do we”. It just looks like the sort of thing that was supposed to be a pithy soundbyte, and I can’t think of the “correct” version being pithy. Seems to me like Bush read what was in front of him, and someone messed up the writing of the actual speech.

So. Is there a mole in the White House speechwriting corps? I certainly hope so.
