Was George Bush an Idiot? (Passed Around via Internet)

Food for thought.  If nobody has sent this to you yet, read it here:

Was George Bush an Idiot??????

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes,would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, would you have said that he is clueless.

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas, would you have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.

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 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes 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?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 15 months -- so you'll have two years and nine months to come up with an answer.

Bush was no idiot.

Not the brightest bulb in the chandelier - but not an idiot.

Obama is an absolute nobody. Idiot isn't the right word. He's unqualified to be in any position of responsibility over others.

In a normal world, Obama would be two-bit attorney in a legal aid office. Either that or a department store salesman.

Not directly related but the RNC's latest video is pretty good:

What took so long?
If you don't recognize the repeating annoying background voicetrack in the video, it's James Carville. Heh.

And Americans prefer Obama over Bush. Makes democracy look worse and worse. I guess I ought to keep calling Obama, "America's affirmative action President." If he hadn't been black he would never have gotten nominated, forget about being elected.

Some Americans are turning against Obama now. It's a queer alliance of sorts between political enemies.

Example, the mega liberals in the WNY Peace Center protesting against Obama for not stopping the war but having us in wars in two countries.

Conservatives may disagree with them on the war but all agree Obama is doing a terrible job and not honoring his Santa Claus like promises.

It'll work out, because the US Presidency is too complicated to fake for 4 long years.

The US Presidency may be too difficult for one president to fake for four years, but Obama has many handlers to help him through it. Is the four years too long for an entire team to fake?

So far, if it wasn't for the media's support, he'd be out. This is harder than they expected.
