For some reason, this morning NPR had George Bush news conference on. I tried to listen to a couple minutes of it, but with most Bush talk, I was immediately disgusted that this man is the leader and representative of our country. He uttered a whole lot of nonsense and seemed very patronizing to the reporters. I cannot imagine how these Harvard and Princeton educated intellectuals manage to put up with him if I, a normal citizen, cannot even listen to five minutes of him talking.
I then did something I don’t do normally, I flip to the hip-hop station to catch up on the latest tunes. Funny thing was, the song “This is Why I am Hot” came on. It made me laugh because someone told me that this song is ridiculous because it uses a lot of “circular reasoning”. Circular Reasoning is define as “an attempt to support a statement by simply repeating the statement in different or stronger terms.” So when he says “I am hot, cus I am fly” and “you ain’t cus you not” he is just using circular reasoning.
Ok here is the funny part. I got sick of the hip-hop and I switched back to Bush. Then after several minutes of listening to Bush, I realized that OUR PRESIDENT uses circular reasoning too!!! He would simply rebut what the reporter say by repeating them, or he would give support for his actions by simply stating that he’s doing it because it’s the right thing to do. He really does not give a good argument supporting or defending his ideas, he just uses a lot of circular reasoning. Hilarious. I still cannot believe he won a second term. :lol:
