Conventional wisdom of leftists has it that our “conservative” president is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Indeed, G.W. Bush is the object of constant ridicule, mostly from liberal media and embittered Democrats still unable to accept the fact that Bush is a two-term winner.
Of course, demeaning Bush is the only option available to liberals. And it does provide a way to vent their frustrations at being unable to defeat the dyslexic cowboy from Texas whom they love to call “idiot.”
Democrats who insult G.W. Bush's intelligence need to be careful. In other words, Howard Dean, how good are your candidates and ideas when an “idiot” can subdue them not once, but twice?
Obviously, G. W. Bush is not an idiot, or even just average. He earned an MBA from a prestigious university, and has achieved heights that the overwhelming majority of people can only wistfully dream of.
President Bush is a capable world leader who deserves the respect of people all over the globe, especially those who call themselves Americans.
Having said that, it is difficult to understand President Bush’s thought process when it comes to illegal immigration. Most distressing is Bush’s assertion that deportation of millions of illegal aliens is “impossible.”
How in the world can it be “impossible” for the most powerful and technologically advanced nation in the world to remove criminals who have invaded our nation at time of war?
Surely the greatest hope for the civilized world in the global “war on terror” is not helpless when it comes to criminals inside its own borders? Some of who are most likely terrorists?
But,if America really is that impotent,Osama bin Laden and other Islamofascists will see that as great news, and a source of inspiration for continuing their brutal assaults on the civilized world.
If America is unable, or unwilling, to control who enters and who stays here, victory for terrorism and world domination by Islamic extremists are all but assured.
Is that really the message you wish to convey to the world, Mr. President?
