Bush's Freudian Slip

Yesterday at the Whitehouse President Bush signed H.R. 4613 authorizing the use of billions of more dollars for defense of the United States. While giving his signing speech, Bush said:

“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.”

Journalist Rupert Cornwell published an article today quoting Bush. Whitehouse transcripts also verify what could very well be a Freudian slip. Somewhere in the background of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building, Karl Rove must have been cringing. As if appropriating billions more for our “offense” budget wasn’t enough to give a fair share of Americans acid indigestion, Bush goes and makes a mistake like this one.
