Since he apparently doesn't know, the name of the older and larger political party in the US is "The Democratic Party", not "The Democrat Party".

You should read his interview over at NPR. Try not to laugh at Bush's answer to Mr. William's question, "So, some people would say, well, if you believe in spending restraint, why haven't you vetoed one bill, you know, one appropriations bill?" Its hilarious. Seriously, I about died laughing, when I heard it last night.

Did you see Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes this week? If CBS doesn't have a feed on their website, it probably has a transcript.

Bush is hardly alone in this mispronunciation. It extends to pretty much the whole of the Republican party, really. I think it's one of those stupid bully things, trying to call somebody by something that's not really their name.

"Democratic", being the adjectival form of "democracy", is generally considered a positive term. "Democrat", on the other hand, refers to a person (or type of person), and can therefore be derided. They're basically trying to maneuver the language so condemning the party is easier.
