White House ‘fixes’ Bush’s grammar.

"White House ‘fixes’ Bush’s grammar."

McClatchy’s Jerusalem blog writes that the White House transcribers are revising Bush’s remarks to read with more grammatical coherence:

“I ain’t got it yet,” Bush said as Abu Mazen stopped speaking and an aide got on stage to fix the problem – which looked like it might have been an unplugged chord.

(As an interesting side note, “I ain’t got it yet” was changed to “I haven’t got it yet” in the official White House transcript…)
