bush protest in LA : 27.6.03 : clickitbigger

generally bush is not regarded as the best of public speakers, and his english is more than poor, and often comical. bushism’s galore. yet he seems to convey his message rather well and polls show his popularity ratings staying solid despite all the blatant lies and the ongoing crisis.

alterNet: renana brooks, a clinical psychologist, has analysed bush speeches to understand his use of language, his rethoric, his tricks; and she has found, that among other things bush is a master at “emotional language”.
highly interesting!
