Bush gets Foot in Mouth award for his abuse of English language!December 10th, 2008 - 1:21 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Dec 10 (ANI): United States President George Bush’’s long, rambling sentences and grammatically incorrect speeches have finally been acknowledged by a British language watchdog group.
Bushs famous gaffes have won him this year’’s not-so-coveted Foot in Mouth Lifetime Achievement Award, reports the New York Daily News.
The Plain English Campaign (PEC) gave the award to mark the departure of Bush from the White House.
While handing out the title, PEC praised Bush for “capturing the spirit of every true gobbledegooker” by using his unique way with words to address a wide range of subjects.
“I hope you leave here and walk out and say, ”What did he say?”” was just one of the Bushisms singled out for special praise, along with a comment he made on a visit to Rome in 2001.
Bush said: “I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe - I believe what I believe is right.”
Bush has joined the list of celebrities and politicians who have also received the title, including former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and supermodel Naomi Campbell. (ANI)
