    Bush Audio Archive

    INFO ACCESS: Nothing sounds more painful to me then listening to George Bush on purpose -- I already cringe at the sound of his voice when listening to NPR's Morning Edition. However, this project is pretty cool. The George W Bush Audio Archive is a database of every public speaking event George Bush has given, assembled in a way that allows one to search for any particular phrase just by using your OS's file search function.

    The George W Bush Public Domain Audio Archive is a public domain database of the speeches of George W. Bush. Every phrase from each major speech has been made into an individual audio file, where the filename is, in most cases, the exact text content of the sample. This allows you to search the entire database for individual keywords. In the list of links below, "Individual files" links allow you to download a zip file containing the individual phrases. "Linear recording" links are an mp3 of the entire speech, which may be downloaded or streamed. In some cases, either the linear recording or the individual phrases are not available.

    The site says the entire database was about ten gigs in wave format. That's a lot of "misstatements" for one man to stand by.
