(How many times can Dubya use the phrase "In other words" in a single outing?)
 
The See-Count : The In-Other-Words-Count

A tendency exists in Dubya's public speaking patterns. He seems to rely on the phrase "In other words" -- a lot -- in explaining himself in front of audiences. Now, there isn't anything necessarily wrong with this, but it's noteworthy nonetheless.

On this page we post the standing record for number of times Dubya has used the phrase "In other words" in a single public appearance, along with several other appearances that were chock full of this favorite phrase.

If you know of a Dubya appearance with a higher "in-other-words-count", by all means please e-mail DubyaSpeak.
