article image"Childrens do learn," Bush tells school kids

By RobotGod     Sep 27, 2007 in Politics
Offering a grammar lesson guaranteed to make any English teacher cringe, our own President George W. Bush told a group of New York school kids on Wednesday: "Childrens do learn."
Yahoo reports that Bush made his latest grammatical slip-up at a made-for-TV event where he was urging Congress to reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act.
The event even drew New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Education Secretary Margaret Spellings plus teachers of course, and about 20 fourth and fifth grade students P.S. 76.
You might remember this classic. During his first presidential campaign, Bush once asked: "Is our children learning?"
They is. They is.
Again on Wednesday, Bush seemed to answer his own question with the same kind of grammar:
"As yesterday's positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured," he said.
You would never know it viewing the transcript. The White House decided to clean up Bush's diction in the official transcript.
Our poor children. Such an example.
He is no stranger to verbal gaffes. He acknowledges he was an average student in school and jokes about his habit of mangling the English language.
Hooked on Phonics did not work for him obviously.
