This post is from many years back.  I wanted to give myself some comic relief amidst the present political maelstrom.

"I hear the voices, and I read the front page, and I know the speculation.
But I'm the decider (not dictator [sic]) and I decide what's best."
 Rose Garden, Washington D.C., April 18, 2006

The Long War President has spoken.
He hears the voices!
But the voices he hears are not delivering fine-tuned language.
Is decider an actual word in the English language?
Is it a very good word?
Not really.
But the Long War President is in the habit of using bad words.
Not bad as in scatological. Just bad.
As in bad diction.

1. "If the terriers and bariffs (barriers and tariffs) are torn down, this economy will grow." 
Rochester, New York, January 7, 2001

2. "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

9. "But Iraq has - have got people there that are willing to kill, and they're hard-nosed killers. And we will work with the Iraqis to secure their future."
