Bush still sounded like a repetative idiot, but he managed to put together mostly coherent sentences this time. Although i was amused when Bush said something that sounded like (when speaking about or troops) "which means we need to be lighter and quicker and more fastile," but according to the transcript what he said was "facile," which i'm not sure makes that much more sense. I'm not sure how you be more of an adjective.

Hmm, facile: "Done or achieved with little effort or difficulty; easy" so he thinks our troops should be ligher, quicker, and more easy :)

The biggest blooper that i noticed was Kerry not pointing out how stupid it is to say "i asked my generals if they had everything the needed and they told me yes" when he "retired" those generals who said they didn't have what they needed =P

Edit: Heh, the second definition of "facile," from another dictionary: "Easy to be surmounted or removed; easily conquerable; readily mastered." Just what we want in our armed forces! :)
