Bush blunders 

Before State of Union address

Any president's State of the Union address goes through multiple drafts to convey a careful, and hopefully eloquent, message. After such a carefully scripted event, Creative Loafing thought it appropriate to revisit a few of President Bush's remarks made without the benefit of speechwriters.

"Scott, sometimes you're the commander-in-chief. Sometimes you're the educator-in-chief, and a lot of times, you're both when it comes to war." -- Jan. 14, 2007, in response to the query, how can you escalate the war when so many people in this country seem to be against it?

"Make no mistake about it, I understand how tough it is, sir. I talk to families who die." -- speaking with reporters about the war Dec. 7, 2006

"And truth of the matter is, a lot of reports in Washington are never read by anybody. To show you how important this one is, I read it, and our guest read it." -- appearing with British Prime Minister Tony Blair Dec. 7, 2006
