This one is priceless! George W. Bush finally says something that I think we can all agree with him on 100%----he's lacking in the ability to communicate orally, shall we say. (Anyone who has responded to KSAs when applying for jobs will know what that's about!)
Anyway, when explaining his use of the term "Democrat majority" (as opposed to "DemocratIC majority") during the State of the Union speech, Bush said "That was an oversight. I mean, I'm not trying to needle." He then went on to say "I'm not that good at pronouncing words anyway."
Here's the thing, Mr. President. (And I do use that term loosely in your case). When you have to give speeches frequently, and you know you're going to come across words that you have no clue on how to pronounce, you look up those words in advance, to see the explanation of how they are pronounced. That's why we have these things called dictionaries. They really come in handy. Try it sometimes.
