It is onerous to know for sure who in Mister Bush’s pantheon of officialdumb most regularly selected “determined” or “desperation” to explain the emotional state of Iraqi insurgents. You is perhaps tempted to present Donald Rumsfeld the prize since he spent the summer time of 2003 telling the shocked and awed and fatally compliant media to not say “rebel,” solely to say “determined.”

However rigorous competitors arises when you’ve gotten Scott McClellan—bear in mind him?—going for multiples, calling the insurgents “determined” 4 occasions in 5 minutes at a June 2005 press convention. He, however, bought whipped by an newbie within the good tidings biz. Maj. Normal Ray Odierno tagged the insurgents “determined” eight occasions throughout a press convention in Tikrit in October 2003. For relentlessness, nonetheless, Mister Bush is untouched, having made a minimum of 35 such “determined” references in varied venues, a median of 1 a month because the warfare started up till he instantly gave it up chilly turkey in March 2006.

Too unhealthy. It had that euphony so beloved by propagandists wanting to hammer hoi polloi till they virtually sing the popular expression like a tv industrial jingle.
