An Appreciative Look Back At George Bush's Oratory

Now that George Bush has left the White House, perhaps we can finally appreciate his oratorical skills. I'm specifically referring to his moments of high comedy. Though Bush cost this country dearly, one simply cannot buy the type of entertainment he brought us as a speaker, particularly when he was unscripted. His mangling of the English language and of logic is rare even among politicians. 

Now that we have a president who writes and speaks brilliantly and never says "noo-cular" and "misunderestimated," we know what we're missing. We share the wistfulness of David Letterman as he introduces his "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches" above.
