Was G Bush an idiot? Before you answer please read and stick to the topics.

    I want my president to have balls of steel when things get tough, not give limp-wristed apologies to terrorist sympathizers, constantly "misspeak" and believe that having a beer with the guys as a result of making a fool of yourself on national television, is looked upon as strong character building!!! LOL


    GREAT POST, OP!!! Don't expect the Obamabots to support you--they hate being reminded of how bad their choice was!!! LOL

  • If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

    If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?

    If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

    If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

  • Yeah, that fly-over is what gets me. You just don't do that just because you "wanna see". That was mean, tasteless, classless and down right stupid.

  • *sigh* You ask many different questions. Would I have approved if Bush did all those things? Probably not. Doesn't mean he's not an idiot! He did many other things that make him an idiot. Just because he didn't do any of the things you mention doesn't mean he isn't.
