If Immigrants Need To Learn English…

… then so should presidents. Brian Williams’ recent interview with the president was more fodder for the “Is the president an idiot?” camp. Bush stated he had recently read Camus, and “3 Shakespeares.” He then stated he was an “ecelectic” reader. This word sounded like a cross between eclectic and epileptic, and possibly reflects a subconscious truth about our president’s thought processes. As Joe Scarborough pointed out in a recent segment actually entitled “Is the president an ‘Idiot’?” there may be some charitable distinction between being stupid and having a learning disability or speech impairment, so that, although the president is intelligent, he has no conceivable way of demonstrating this through speech. This hypothesis could explain all the observed facts if it were not for Iraq, Katrina, the Dubai ports deal, and countless other indications that the president has a deeper thought disorder than just a speech impediment. Besides, invoking dyslexia to explain bad behavior seems like such a liberal maneuver, uncharacteristic of the conservative modus operandi.

Unfortunately it appears we are stuck with a stupid president for another 2 years, at a time in history when world affairs would challenge even the most adroit president. We cringe when we hear that the president of Iran challenged our president to a debate, because, of all our presidents in our history, this one who can’t string together a coherent sentence to save his life would undoubtedly lose such a debate. Such a sad state of affairs!

  1. AND………he said that he’s read 60 books so far this year, “three Shakespeare’s and a Camus”. Somehow, thinking of Bush pondering Camus’ brand of existentialism seems sad and laughable at the same time.

  2. Come on now the guy really thinks he is the second coming…. of what I dont know but I think that we will eventually find out.

  3. how DARE you insult the almighty bush. being a personal friend of jesus, i’ll be sure and get all you sinners smote to bejezus and back.
