Shut Up, Freud!

Has anyone else noticed that President Bush tends to blurt out statements that some suspect are true, but are diametrically opposed to his party's platform?

He said that, after a debate with Kerry, "I made it very plain. We will not have an all-volunteer army." The crowd fell silent. "WE WILL have an all-volunteer army," Bush said, quickly catching himself. "Let me restate that. We will not have a draft."

And, speaking of America's occupation of Iraq:
"The world would be better off if we did leave"
(Thanks to Atrios for the clip.)

Anyone can stumble while speaking publicly, and Mr. Bush has elevated the verbal stumble to an art form. But does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that Mr. Bush might be having a little trouble keeping the lies straight when he's under stess?
