I'm not trying to talk about politics much here, but Bush's actual intelligence. I've been in many conversations with Republicans who've asked me why I don't like Bush. Generally, the first thing that comes out of my mouth is something to the effect of "First of all, he's a complete moron." They UNIFORMLY take this as a completely unacceptable reason to dislike a president. I, of course, have policy reasons I dislike Bush for, but the President of the USA should not be a moron, and disliking him for the fact that he hardly speaks English, and really has no ****ing clue what's going on should be totally legitimate. So to the Republicans, or Bush fans in general, do you find it concerning that he really has no clue? Just today in a speech, Bush asserted that "When the new Iraqi government takes office next year, Iraqis will have the only constitutional democracy in the Arab world..." I'm 17 years old. I knew instantly that was BS. Turkey and Lebanon both have constitutional democracies. Remember when Syria supposedly assasinated the popular Lebanese Prime Minister? Did you hear that they supposedly killed another outspoken critic of Syria just today or yesterday? Those were democratically elected, popular MP's. Taken from the CIA World Factbook. Lebanon: Government type: republic Constitution: 23 May 1926; amended a number of times, most recently Charter of Lebanese National Reconciliation (Ta'if Accord) of October 1989 Suffrage: 21 years of age; compulsory for all males; authorized for women at age 21 with elementary education Legislative branch: unicameral National Assembly elections: last held in four rounds on 29 May, 5, 12, 19 June 2005 Turkey: Government type: republican parliamentary democracy Constitution: 7 November 1982 Suffrage: 18 years of age; universal Legislative branch: unicameral Grand National Assembly of Turkey or Turkiye Buyuk Millet Meclisi (550 seats; members are elected by popular vote to serve five-year terms) elections: last held 3 November 2002 Isn't it really just disconcerting that day after day, consistantly, he's shown to simply be stupid?
