    I'm seeing a troubling trend lately -- people claiming President Obama is stupid and an idiot, while the whole time asserting he's "destroying the country."

    You simply can't make that argument. It's exactly like:

    "Bush is stupid but he planned and executed 9/11"

    "Bush is stupid but as it turns out, his college grades were better than Kerry's"

    "Bush is stupid but he was able to steal the 2000 election."

    "Bush is stupid but he still beat the best guy we could put up in 2004."

    "Bush is stupid but he tricked us into war"

    And so on. It cannot be both.

    The point is, President Barack Obama is not stupid, not an idiot, and he cannot destroy the country. This union is NOT that fragile.

    You may now resume shaving your back.

    You can be stupid and not be an idiot.

    Bush was used by neo con Republicans. He is both stupid and an idiot. Worse, he was also incompetent. But I never thought of him as evil. Just a spoiled, privileged kid who was lucky enough to have a father who was rich, connected and a former president. Only, it wasn't lucky for the country.

    The Republic has been deteriorating for decades. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are just another set of goons sent to destroy it, just like Bush. They'll eventually succeed.

    BTW, I can't reach my back very well. Do you mind shaving it for me?

    They will not. Our country, our Union, is not that fragile. I refuse to buy into the doomsday scenarios.
    I'll politely decline, noting that you appear to have what's called a personal problem.

    Obama isn't stupid...he's suffers from a complete lack of experience.

    He's destroying the country by attempting to put into practice the ivory tower, socialist agenda that permeates academia.

    The sad part is, P-BO is not stupid. I'm quite sure he's doing precisely what he wants to do and intends to do.

    I think you have a very valid point. I really believe a lot of Bush's problems started because he listened too much to other people. Toward the end of his presidency, he had a very shakey relationship with Dick Cheney. I've read that he stopped listening to him. In particular, Cheney wanted him to pardon Scooter Libby and Bush refused and would not budge.

    It's not that I think Bush was totally clean, but some of the things he is accused of are silly. Especially his being behind 9/11. That was a really awful rumor. I truly don't think that I have seen a prez in my lifetime that has deliberately set out to ruin the country.

    He did pardon Libby, at least his jail time.
