|This reminds me of an old (2001) Nation article about how the press has taken to judiciously editing Bush's blunders:
Muriel Dobbin said that she didn't use Bush's own words because they "didn't make great sense in English." In general, Dobbin said, if the President completely mangles a sentence it should be noted in the story, but "if he's simply muffing the syntax it seems OK to correct it so as not to torture the reader."
