So, George W. Bush is Stupid? Compared to Whom?

Written by Steve Bowers on September 22, 2013

If he was as classless as some occupants of the Oval Office we’ve known, George W. Bush could now be on Fox reminding us of how he thought Saddam had shipped his chemical weapons to Syria.   (Unfortunately I cannot recall how to spell Saddam’s last name, but I distinctly remember it is spelled the same as our President’s middle name.)

That’s right!  I’d forgotten what Bush said.

This reminds me of a friend (now deceased) who would rant about how stupid President GW Bush was whenever Bush’s name was mentioned. I always wondered how “stupid” he may have been since he went through Yale (I think) and got a graduate degree in something (maybe economics, I don’t recall … I’m getting old). I probably couldn’t have done that. Ergo, if Bush was stupid, I’m stupider. The old, dead friend tried to go to college (he claimed … but he said a lot of things) but in all his talking about his past he never actually explained how things worked out at college. (Graduation date, major, those sort of details.) So, if Bush is stupid, the old guy was stupider. Much stupider.

The old dead guy probably claimed at some point that Bush’s dad had gotten him into Yale (?) and had gotten him through the course work by Geo. Herbert’s influence. (The old guy may not have made such a claim … but others did … but, of course, the old, dead guy never talked about Bush’s accomplishments, only his failing(s); ie; “He is so %&#@$$)(* stupid.” 

In other words, the old guy spouted a conclusion, which he never bothered to support with evidence (all of the evidence ran contra). A person guilty of such shenanigans is himself “stupid” and assumes his audience is, too.

Hey, GW could fly a fighter jet. How stupid could he have been to do that? Daddy might get you into Yale, but he can’t fly your fighter for you. So, if Bush is “stupid” in the opinion of some, how “stupid” are the people who cannot fly a fighter, but insist that Bush is “stupid”?

And while we’re discussing “stupid” people, let’s discuss Sarah Palin. Remember when Katie Kouric interviewed her and asked her if she read certain periodicals? Do you recall the names of those periodicals? Neither do I Never heard of them. (Maybe they didn’t exist.) Remember, too, how right away the press jumped on how “stupid” Palin was? Well … my old and deceased pal never heard of those periodicals, either.

So if Sarah is “stupid” because she doesn’t regularly read those periodicals, how “stupid” must my deceased pal be since he never even heard of them. Pretty “stupid,” huh? And consider, she had also governed a very important state, where she also put a bunch of political crooks in jail, many from her own Republican party. She came up from the bottom by her own efforts to become Governor. She has experience. Had my dead buddy done anything like she had? Nothing close. Has our current “community organizing” president done anything like Sarah has? 

No. Nothing close. An elected dog catcher has more collective experience. 

So, if Sarah Palin is “stupid,” ergo, how “stupid” is Obama? Rhetorical question, right?

The answer is more apparent every day. The Syrian/ poison gas/ Red Line thing makes it very clear. (And we’re not going to mention Solyndra or IRS targeting of Tea Partiers or “fill in the blank.”

George W. “Stupid” Bush was right about Saddam shipping his chemical weapons to Syria … and the press laughed at him. As did liberals in Congress along with the current Administration. 

Who’s laughin’ now?

“Stupid?”  What did Forest Gump say? And I’m not talkin’ about the “box of chocolates” or “Stuff happens” statements.

PS: We all know why the liberals hate Palin. It has nothing to do with intelligence. Female liberals hate her because she is something they aren’t. Male liberals hate her because she is something the liberal women they are stuck with will never be. Or have!

PSS: Have you ever looked at the top rankin’ female liberals? Please!

PSSS: There are several cartoons lurking in this mess. If only I didn’t have a day job.
