The president, II

I hope my last post on President Bush didn’t come across as too critical. My sole criticism (in that post) was in regard to his public speaking abilities when he can’t lean on a script. I was truly amazed at his incoherence yesterday, three years into this presidency.

From everything I have heard, I believe if I met George W. I would truly like him. Apparently he comes across as amiable, compassionate and empathetic, at least when the meeting is on a one-to-one basis and he’s out of the public spotlight. And there’s no doubt he is intelligent. That doesn’t alter my opinion about his (in)ability to think and speak on his feet.

He can speak, but he sure can be funny without trying.

If nothing else, George would give you a cute new nickname. “Hey, Duck-man! Duck-meister! The Peekster!”

Well said. Thanks for the clarification, and I love the following cartoon.

Dude, you said he’s smart. Are you nuts? The guy has a combined SAT of 1200. You can’t even get into a good college nowadays with that score. He got into Harvard b/c of daddy. Now the moron is leading us down the moral toilet.

Cory, I’ll agree with you on his leading us down the moral toilet. But if he were so dumb, he wouldn’t be getting everything he wants. (Whether those things are vile or not is another conversation.) But I have read enough from responsible journalists indicating that he can be extremely engaging and bright in the right circumstances (when he’s at ease, without the cameras and microphones). I’m just trying to be fair….
