“misunderestimated”

The Best of Bushisms

slide7

Difficulty with large words and complicated sentences, resulted in mangled sentences

  • “I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe – I believe what I believe is right.”
  • Confusion over true meaning
  • Slow, halting speaking style – due to sentence difficulties?
slide8

Result = negative outlook on intelligence

  • Verbal missteps not always indicative of lack of intelligence
  • Bush’s IQ above average
  • “Some sort of language-skill deficit akin to dylexia” – Jacob Weisman
  • Explains difficulty with coherence
slide9

Fairly capable speaker when going off a script

  • “Speaking to the nation, he was learned and articulate” – David Blair
  • 2005 Inaugural Address
  • Usually only in unscripted appearances that Bush ran into trouble
slide11

Good eye contact

  • Pleasant voice, but more variance of tone would be more exciting
  • Usually fairly confident, not always poised
  • Gestures – simple and effective
  • Comfortable utilization of space
slide12

Lively eyes – very personable

  • His personality – a great strength
  • “The President’s way is an aptitude for connecting to people, in part through his familiar use of nicknames, banter, and physicality. He charms people by remembering who they are and has a powerful memory for details and figures that truly matter to him.” – Jacob Weisman
  • Helped him win both 2000 and 2004

elections

  • Example of humor in 2000

debate

conclusion
conclusion
  • Will never be considerate one of greatest orators in the presidency
  • My opinion – a thoroughly average speaker
  • History may not be too kind, but…

“There’s no such thing as legacies. At least, there is a legacy, but I’ll never see it.” – George W. Bush
