THE PRESIDENT: Let me tell you something. Part of the tax relief for small businesses was not just cutting the rates. We also incentivized people to buy equipment. In other words, if he bought equipment, he got a little extra help in the tax code.
There is no end to the Bushism phenomenon. At least, until November.
(And hey: I scooped Weisberg!)
Update: each speech Bush gives is a goldmine of rhetorical bungling. Another example:
We don't need as many troops stationed overseas anymore because the Soviet era is no longer a threat.More to follow, I'm sure.
Second update: Bush isn't the first to use "incentivized." It's originally attributed the great orator Dick Gephardt. The Prez is in distinguished company.
