President calls Cheney "Very Strong and Powerful"

"Meanwhile in Texas, the sheriff's office looking into the shooting said it had ended its investigation and no charges would be filed."

There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey. --John Ruskin

RE: President calls Cheney "Very Strong and Powerful"

I hate it when (any) politician uses phrases that are the result of some focus group research.

Its like some advisor said, " Use the words.'strong' and 'powerful', They make you sem like a better leader"

I'd rather hear the President in his own malformed words; at least thats the real Geo. W Bush.

It's advertising. Say the same few key words and phrases repeatedly. It's Clinton's "It's the economy stupid." The Repos recognized the power of the technique and have embraced it. Bush does a terrible job at it, it is so obvious that he has a key phrase that he tries to use until it sounds nonsensical. The professional spinners do it masterfully, you hardly notice. Which is worse, a president to does it with ineptitude or a president who does it with grace?

I hate it.
