Thread Name: BS: Bush..........the truth is out
Subject: RE: BS: Bush..........the truth is out
Whoever wrote the speach was a damn good writer. John Kennedy used Gore Vidal for some of his speaches. Hard to top Vidal.
I'm not a big fan of Bush - I didn't even want to hear it but Philip asked me to lunch and, Susan's father-in-law being a bit deaf, the TV was turned up loud. One of the commentators said that it was off-the cuff, without teleprompters but I suspect Bush had long cuffs.
Even prompted, he sounded like he was enjoying his visit and enjoying what he had to say. He didn't sound like he was choking on a speakwriter's ideas.
