Re: Blair's speech to congress

While I'm not a fan of Blair's approach to this "war on terrorism" at least he is capable (unlike Bush) of stringing a few coherent sentences together. But even though he is eloquent and sincere in his demeanor, he is doing a questionable job of representing the interests of his country, the majority of who don't support his position. As for the press conference and the answers Bush gave? I couldn't begin to count how many times I've heard that same speech. He gives it regardless of what question he is asked.

Not sure why everyone thinks that the most endearing quality of a president should be eloquent speech.

I find Bush's rural language skills kind of refreshing. I would like to see a president just say something like: "I'm plumb mad and I'm going to kick some terrorist ass!"

I wonder how many on this forum would speak as well as they write if they found themselves on TV in front of the whole world. And if they "mangled a salable" would it make them any less intelligent?
