Bush's speech: then and now

A little video contrasting the Bush of 10 years ago to the more recent Bush. His ability to articulate does seem to have declined. I don't know if pre-senile dementia is a good diagnosis. It could simply be that W had a reasonable grasp of the issues when he was in Texas, but is now in over his head.

Languagelog once wrote about this, but I'm not sure where. I guess this must be the post I had in mind.

Given the general sense that this administration is willing to use any tactic to manipulate the public, I'd be willing to believe that Bush's "Aw-Shucks" manner is an affectation.
