Im sure we will simply see a bunch of gaffes by President Bush posted up next.
Fact is people make mistakes in what they say. So you can't speak, that doesn't make you stupid. Some of the smartest men in the world cant speak. Stephen Hawking for one.
We should be looking at their character, the effect of their policies, and their leadership skills.
Bush had some issues. Obama has more. in both cases, we seem to be getting screwed.
To be completely fair, he and Napolitano have not only halted the rise in privacy, but eliminated it
Yes I do remember how stupid Bush was. Obama seems to be a third Bush term.
I can't judge a man for stuttering to find the answer to a question. Public speaking is hard for the well trained.
The lies are to be expected, sadly.
And the jackass is a White Sox fan, not a Cubs fan, and that was the music for Monday night football.
All politicians speak so much and so often they are going to make mistakes or make idiot utterances but what gets me both during the election and during his first year was how much of the media played cheer leader for him like a bunch of love struck teen aged girls rather than doing the something that used to be called journalism. The best journalists are not fooled by eloquence because they love language and seek to make it serve truth and meaning.
Most of the speeches he gave during the campaign were eloquent sounding hallmark cards with very little substance and the media just swooned.
In a way Obama is now suffering from that love affair, the media created unrealistic expectations of him and now he has fallen to earth and had to govern, make real decisions and not just say inspiring sweet nothings.
It's true. If any of us had to speak in public that much we would make all kinds of gaffes.
But it sure is fun seeing the Bumbler in CHief get skewered after the big talking up all the media gave him. He has been way oversold to the American People.
On another note, nice to see you back here, Frogen. I had wondered what happened to you.
Depending on what his real agenda was, he's either stupid, or he's stupid like a fox.
Since I cannot read minds, I really don't know which he is.
I suspect the latter, though, FWIW.
You didnt get the memo fro Rachel Maddow.
I'll repeat. Bush was a stupid figurehead. The real power was in Cheney and Richard Perle, who in turn were answerable to Israel's amen corner and the Vatican.
