That's what Dubya said-- in mid-sentence during the debate-- to that little voice in his ear that was telling him what to say, as he can't talk and think at the same time. A commenter on the post Bush Blows it! Exposes Earpiece in Debate says:

"... It [the presence of an earpiece] also explains why Bush pauses in odd places... he's listening before repeating. On the night of 9/11 our local network even patched this voice over the air by mistake before realizing it. We watched in amazement as Bush repeated, word for word, whatever this voice said. He could only remember three or four words at a time, so the natural flow of someone speaking on their own was completely interrupted. This mistake, of broadcasting the voice in Bush's ear was made again, more recently, and I believe Danny Schechter has written about it."

Over 65 million Americans saw the Kerry-Bush debate; I hope that a majority now can see what a simulacrum Dubya is. America deserves better.
