So MRP will admit that picking on President Bush for not being super articulate is kind of a cheap shot, but his official Mother’s Day greeting was just too good to pass up (emphasis mine):
THE PRESIDENT: Laura and I want to wish everybody a happy Mother’s Day. It’s just a special day to give thanks to our Moms; appreciate the hard work that Moms do. And I understand that for some, however, Mother’s Day is a sad day for those who lost their lives in Oklahoma and Missouri and Georgia because of the tornadoes, are wondering whether or not tomorrow will be a bright and hopeful day. We send our prayers to those who lost their lives, the families of those who lost their lives.
And oh, it doesn’t end there:
And the federal government will be moving hard to help. I’ll be in touch with the governors to offer all the federal assistance we can.
