Bush's penchant for verbal mistakes are legendary. Fear is surfacing that he is dyslexic. He says subliminable when he means subliminal. Tacular for tactical. Sez vile when he means viable. Turned "basis" into "basics" when he said "Reading is the basics of all learning." When referring to McCain said, "The senator...can't have it both ways. He can't take the high horse and then claim the low road."

Dyslexia runs in the family. His mother was still drilling him with flashcards when he was 13 to get his reading up to speed. The Barbara Bush Foundation grants monies to train teachers how to teach dyslexics. Nancy LaFevers, a Houston speech and language expert sez, "The errors you've heard Governor Bush make are consistant with dyslexia." Sue Horn, who has been diagnosing dyslexia for 25 years sez, "Bush is probably dyslexic, although he has probably never been diagnosed." Worse still, if this is the case, dyslexia and attention deficit disorder have a 30% crossover.

I sure hope Bush doesn't cause any international holocausts with his language problems. If he actually gets elected, lets just hope that he doesn't misuse the word "tactical" very often.<P>

Duck - Usually logic reigns your posts,but when it comes to George Bush you stretch yourself way too thin. You carry a heavy grudge and it shows in your posts.

Who cares if he is dyslexic? I seriously doubt that it would cause any new issues that have not already arisen in the last half century of his life.

I am more concerned about a habitual admitted liar in office (like Gore) than a man who sees words backwards.

Bob Dole's ex is dyslexic, as are both her brothers to varying degrees. All three are very successful in their chosen careers (land development in Colorado, HP engineer, registered dietitian) because they work hard to overcome the problem. One of the three is probably ADD, which fits the 30% crossover, oddly enough.

While it can be a problem (which seems to worsen when the person is under stress), it is not a debilitating affliction.

What is ironic is that the left is always telling us that NO disability should restrict anybody from doing ANYTHING!
Even if he suffers from dyslexia, it is one of the least disruptive neurological disorders that exists. Overwhelmingly most dyslexics function at 100% capacity.

Duck, what's really IRONIC, however, is your pointing out Bush missusing certain words. It's ironic because Bush has done it ACCIDENTLY, whereas Clinton/Gore missuse words PURPOSELY.

It has been the Conservatives that have been saying for eight years now... WORDS MEAN THINGS!

I am sure that Duck believes that Franklin Delano should have been removed from office the day he went into a wheel chair as well.

Damn cripples and handicaps taking up good office space, right Duck?

Duck-

Here is a tip. Vanity Fair is a rag. (Are you a subscriber?) Gail Sheehy is a physco-babbling hack.

If your intent is to be taken serously when you post such things, use a better source.

The Enquirer and the Star tabloids have reporters with better credibility than her.<BR>

The Wolfman has me pegged. I'm not very good at bashing, but trying to do my part to even things out. Apparently, few folks will bat an eye at Gore and Demo bashing. Then react indignantly when someone Bush and Repub bashes. You rag on Gore's faults, I rag on Bush's faults. We don't want to seem too lopsided here. A bash for a bash....

But being a good communicator is important for a president. And since Bush has no redeeming quality that over-rides his language problem, the country would be better served if their mouthpiece had a handle on the language. If he's just going to be a front man for the cabinet, get someone that can speak coherently.

[i]since he has no redeeming quality that over-rides his language problem, the country would be better served if their mouthpiece had a handle on the language.[/i]

How can I argue with logic like this?! How about by saying that the simple fact that Bush wants to give me back some of MY money and get guvment out of my life as much as possible is redeeming enough. If he follows through on that much he could speak in pig-latin for all I care.

Tell me again about Gore's redeeming qualities? And leave out potential fiction novelist.

Actually, FDR was in a wheelchair before he was president. He was striken with polio while he was a senator.

Pam - He was not totally wheelchair bound until after he was in office. He deliberately used canes, walking sticks, etc. to get around the public eye and would not rest in the chair until he was out of sight. He did so for a few years. He was afraid the american public would see him as weak otherwise.
