The title on the video above
 
"Is Bush an idiot" did it for me - I am sure the video was compiled by some little weenie in their mom and dads basement - the hypocracy -
 
After all, Mr. Bush is is a Ivy League Graduate, successful business man with $ millions in the bank, the freely elected president of the most powerful nation on earth, has attained the highest office in this country....
 

The idiot is making free videos in his basement that are critical of someone that has attained far more in his life than video boy could ever dream of, lol...

The video you are referring to is not compiled by "some kid in his moms basement".
It is from MSNBC a recognized news leader. You are correct that G. W. went to an Ivy league school.
What kind of GPA did he have?

All I care to say is he has held his ground from day one.  He wasn't the orator Reagan was.  Doesn't matter.  He held his ground in the same fashion.  To me, for someone to do this through smear s#!+ like this is priceless.

Most of the clips were shot in the "Bushism" days.  Still funny, but I still support him.  He doesn't care about this as much as the hopefuls do.  That is the difference between bull and rhetoric.

I never said he was a bad President, or that he was dumb.
He just doesn't have the public speaking skills that most politicians do.

What school did you go to?  Wherever it was, odds are its much easier to get a 4.0

If you can ever seriously raise/defend the statement that a man that has accomplished what he has is an idiot becuase he is not silver tounged like willi or osama then I have learned volumes about you in a few short paragraphs.

You wanna play a game about how many mis-statements osama, er obama has already made in his short run?

Then explain raising the subject of his gpa...?  Looks to me like you were trying to make case there.  Pedaling backwards will still get you there - just takes a lot longer.

if W is so bad at speaking and so dumb, why have the dems been unable to do anything since they took control of congress? He certainly has not been a lame duck president.
I enjoy his spoken mistakes. he is down to earth and doesn't put on an act like the dem candidates are.
I also enjoy the fact the dems and others are still slamming W. I guess they still don't realize he isn't running for reelection.

First for the sake of discussion, do you really think a democratic congress can get any of their goals accomplished when a republican President is in office? How long has bush been in office? Almost 8 right? How long have the dems had control of congress? Give them time they will get things accomplished. I enjoy watching bush trip over words as much as our parents enjoyed watching Gerald Ford fall down steps. Nothing political there.


 
After all, Mr. Bush is is a Ivy League Graduate, successful business man with $ millions in the bank, the freely elected president of the most powerful nation on earth, has attained the highest office in this country.

You're the one that brought up his schooling my friend, I simply asked If you knew what his GPA was.
I think it is great that "C" students now have hope for becoming President.
As for the freely elected part, President Bush lost the popular vote. (Our votes do not seem to matter as much as those in the electoral college.)
I not only watch the news in this country, but news from the UK, Germany and South Africa. (All news channels here in America have political ties, and their view is askew ed.) The President represents our country when he visits other countries. This is but one reason the USA is not revered as the great nation it once was by foreign countries.
I personally do not vote straight ticket, I vote for whom I feel is more capable to run the country, be it democrat or republican.

P.S. In my opinion, the last President we had that we could be proud of was Reagan.

then why did a republican congress get things done under clinton?
 the dems were in power for 40 years when the republicans took the house and senate in 1994. that was because they didn't get things done. the reason the dems are in the majority now is because the republicans lost their way and forgot it was conservatism that got them elected.
the dems have a majority in the house and senate,why have they not been able to pass legislation or override the vetos? they are in the majority,yes?

I talked to a foreign exchange student that lived with us a couple years ago today.  She is German.  We had many good discussion about real global issues, as well as the standard world political views.  They are being fed a bit of a different picture than we are right now - ref the upcoming elections.

One thing she noticed as well is the lack of chosen running mates.  We have been left with 3 choices - an aging white man, a little over the hill white woman, and finally a rather young and full of hope black man.  But no running mates.  Electoral college my a$$.

I have always enjoyed the candor of our CIC.  He isn't worrie about any of that as much as he is the issues.  Bubba was an eloquent speaker, but he was very weak on anything that wasn't covered with a reward of Mc Dies or caviar.  Not to mention the occasional pole stroking.

Ron Reagan was a true leader through and through.  I don't see anyone on the horizon that will come close this time around.

MSNBC is a recognized news leader. Bullshit, they are a left wing propaganda network. Whens the last time they said anything positive about the war in Iraq or our soldiers period. All they talk about is what they think is wrong with our great country. If this was back in the WW days they would have been shut down. Mr. Bush has his faults but so do you, and I! Right now he is the most powerful man on this earth. Like it or not!

I agree that MSNBC puts a spin on their stories, just like Fox News puts a twist in theirs. Even though they are biased, they are still news leaders. (See my above post.)

I served our country, and I pay my taxes. I'd like to think that I earned a right to laugh at our Commander in Chief when he flubs up. I'm sure I will laugh at our next President. Be they, Republican, Democrat, or (Gulp!) Independant.

I served my country as well - perhaps that is why I have a very high, very deep respect for that post and anyone that attains it - wether the person I vote for attains it or not, I will not impower foreigners or enemies of this nation by chipping away at the credibity of the President of this nation - particularly when it is mean spirited,  biased, has no basis in fact, and is agenda driven.

The electoral college is how it has been done and was done back in 2000.  Sorry, Gore didn't get the rules changes "after the fact" like what Clinton is now trying to do with FL and MI, after the Dems agreed not to include those two state delegates!  However, I guess you forgot, Bush won the popular vote by over 50 percent in 2004.  And if I'm not mistaken, that was more than Bubba ever won by.  I like the fact that Bush could care less what anyone says about him, he cares about the job he currently has and does what he believes will keep us safe.

no it is a term used to describe the kennedy's not the democrats.  when we get a perfect president, let me know, until then, a blow job wasn't such a big deal in perspective to the entire world hating us, and trying to invade and control everyone and everything.

Amen
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Remember that no matter how bad things are in your life, there are others dealing with much worse obstacles, and be thankful for what you have.
