If I ask "Should I hit my kid twice or 3 times for cussing" what should be acceptable as an answer and one that is "Polite" ?

Most people would not condone hitting a child at all for cussing. Have you looked into other solutions for the problem? If it is an ongoing battle I would suggest regular discipline as opposed to punishment. If it is just a once-in-awhile thing perhaps he is just reacting to an extreme situation and you could give a disapproving look, knowing that he is basically a good kid and that this is out of the norm.

There, doesn't that suffice as both usefull and polite? See it can be done!
