Thanks for pointing that out. Someone who actually knows less than Bush! Maybe he ought to get some kind of medal.

Er, not really. There's "that internet" and "your own
personal internet":

Ten of them streaming across that internet and what
happens to your own personal internet?

That's one internet per person, apparently, plus
"that internet."

And then there are the internets that get sent
back and forth:

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my
staff at 10
o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it
yesterday. Why?

To be fair, he probably just inadvertently said
"internet" when he meant to say "email." And
you can sort of figure out what he means by "What
happens to your own personal internet?"

And then later when he talks about the Internet
being "a series of tubes," he probably means
"pipes," which is more or less accurate.

So he's more terminologically than conceptually
challenged. But still...
