yeah, he puts on a 'good ol' boy act', but that don't mean he's a moron and he ain't edjumacated.

Didn't he go to both Harvard *and* Yale?

I believe he's a lot sharper and more intelligent than people give him credit for. He may have outwardly simple ways, and may not be the great orator that Clinton was, but I often wonder what Al Gore might have done after 9-11 if he'd been elected....and if he would have had the same national rallying power as GWB did.

And doesn't GWB have some of the highest overall ratings of *any* president *ever*according to some polls?

Moron??? No way, mon.

I agree - all the Bush-bashing lately has made me sad....

I'm not sure.
He lacks any common sense whatsoever but he must be doing something right to make us believe his lies.

I've abstained from voting so far, but I'm tempted to vote yes at the moment.

Tis interesting ya know, none of us can say for certain the man is a moron. Sounds honestly like *general dislike* is being confused with a somewhat inappropriate term.

I've heard good points from both sides. I think Bush is doing a better job than most Americans would do, but that doesn't say much about the state of the union.

By definition Bush is not a moron, but how often do we resort to calling "stupid" people as morons? All the time, right? That being said I don't know if we should assume that the Canadian representative that brought this conversation about should be held to Webster's definition.

Bush is definitely stupid in front of the camera. Maybe he's still camera-shy....it could happen

One more thing: Discotheque asked if Gore would have been able to unite the masses after 9/11. My answer is, yes. Any president would have done a satisfactory job. Does anyone honestly believe that it would have been any different had it been Gore? First off, the media would never criticize anyone after an event like 9/11. Bush was guaranteed to jump in the polls due to the level of the atrocity. Bush did whatever anyone else would have done.

That brings up my last point. It's off-subject, but worth it.
------If 9/11 never happened, how would Bush be viewed by the American public? I think the attack was the best thing that ever happened to Bush, because his approval rating skyrocketed from the 50% to over 80%, it took focus away from the economic problems, etc.

Yes, Angela Harlem. it is a possibility to confuse the 'general dislike' with the true nature of his intelligence.

However, one should ask WHY this general dislike exists.
I certainly know about mine, and I am pretty sure I'm not confusing the elements.
