Here are some interesting questions:
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 he inept he is on his own and that he 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 given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs in exchange for Gordon Brown’s 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 filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish-illiterate as to refer to the Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May) as “Cinco de Cuatro” (Fifth of Fourth) in front of the Mexican ambassador, and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
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 (followed by a jet fighter) flying low over millions of people 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 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 in one year the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, 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 people think him so brilliant and impressive?
Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry… He’s done all the above in only 8 months — there’s still three years and four months to come up with an answer.
