This article about the power of Bush's oratory skills has me worried about my sanity. I saw the man's primetime press conference; he came off as insincere and possibly delusional.
This is the kind of rhetoric that keeps his numbers up...
"We're carrying out a decision that has already been made and will not change: Iraq will be a free, independent country," Bush said at an April 13 news conference.
This is commanding and reassuring?! He has yet to give us any details on how this is going to be done and lied to get us there in the first place.
"Other nations and international institutions are stepping up to their responsibilities in building a free and secure Iraq," he said.
As far as I know, more countries are pulling out than are stepping up.
Nonetheless, the American public believes the lies they are told if they are repeated often enough by Bush and his minions...
The poll also found that 57 percent thought Iraq gave "substantial support" to al Qaeda or thought Iraq was directly involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The quality of his oratory seems to be ignorance of the facts and repetition of the lies.
...And yet it is working. I fear that the majority in this country are half-wits.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
