Bush's lexicon of lingo lives on

President Bush, in his surprise visit to Afghanistan today, was asked a question about Osama bin Laden. Not surprisingly, his response was riddled with the same old buzzwords and catch-phrases we've been hearing from him for the last four years. This really is beginning to sound like a broken record.

Q: I'd like to ask you, Mr. President, there was a time when you talked about getting Osama bin Laden dead or alive. Why is he still on the loose five years later? And are you still confident that you'll get him?

PRESIDENT BUSH: I am confident he will be brought to justice. What's happening is, is that we got U.S. forces on the hunt for not only bin Laden, but anybody who plots and plans with bin Laden. There are Afghan forces on the hunt for not only bin Laden, but those who plot and plan with him. We've got Pakistan forces on the hunt. And part of my message to President Musharraf is, is that it's important that we bring these people to justice. He understands that. After all, they've tried to kill him four times. So we've got a common alliance, all aimed at routing out people who are evildoers, people who have hijacked a great religion and kill innocent people in the name of that religion.

We're making progress of dismantling al Qaeda. Slowly but surely, we're bringing the people to justice, and the world is better for it, as a result of our steady progress.

"What's happening is, is that we got U.S. forces on the hunt..." Nice grammar, Dubya.

Nothing but the same old rhetoric from the same old, grammatically-challenged dimwit. Way to go, Duh-bya.

What an embarassment.

You forgot to add in several spaces [pauses, strikes the "you know?" pose].

Right, right. And the little laughs. And the supercilious sneers. All those little details that make a Bush speech so bloody pathetic.

Sadly, the transcript I used came right off of the web site...bad grammar and all. Ugh.

"Let me sum up. On the hunt, brought to justice, steady progress, brought to justice, on the hunt. Thank you, God Bless America."

I hate it when they plot and plan!

Look, I think Dubya is doing a heckuva job!

The last person accused of doing a "heckuva job" was soon relieved of his duties. One can only hope the same fate would await Dubya. The sooner, the better.

Of course, then we get Old Dickie Shotgun in there. Worse.
