Who else thought that competitiveness was not a word when Bush used it in his State of the Union? (turns out I was wrong, it is a word)

Gee, ya think? John thought he was being real clever by 'catching Bush' make up a word that didn't exist. Turns out the joke was on John. So if John was ready to call Bush an idiot for making up a word, what does it make John for not knowing it actually was? :cool:
