Why President Bush Refuses To Withdraw From Iraq; Just A Matter Of Phonetics
As reported by ABC News, on-air, and on their web site in an article titled “Bush’s UN Speech Full of Fone-eh-tick Pronunciations for World Leaders“.
But this year, a glimpse of how the President sees his speeches was accidentally placed on the UN website along with the speechwriters’ cell phone numbers.
Pronunciations for President Bush’s friend French President Sarkozy “[sar-KOzee]” appeared in draft #20 on the UN website. Other pronunciations included the Mugabe “[moo-GAHbee] regime” and pronunciations for countries “Kyrgyzstan [KEYRgeez-stan]” and “Mauritania [moor-EH-tain-ee-a].”
So now we know how to get George W. Bush to listen to the people and get engaged in withdrawing our troops from Iraq, we need to put a Teleprompter in front of him and spell it out phonetically, so he can read it out loud to himself:
Wiff-Dra Fr-Um Eye-Rak
Maybe then he will understand the concept.
