Spinsanity's Bryan Keefer's latest article, The Strategically Ambiguous George W. Bush, examines the handful of rhetorical turns Dubya has employed in his speechifying on controverial subjects, including tax cuts, terrists, and some of the more embarassing items stemming from the Iraq muddle, in order to win over the soundbyte-swallowing hordes of unwashed McCitizens that drive everybody's favourite hegemony. From the article:
President Bush's recent claim that weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq highlights...disturbing trends in rhetoric from the White House...[a] history of strategically ambiguous statements that, while technically or arguably true, imply connections between two things which he cannot directly demonstrate.
