Former conservative Republican congressman Joe Scarborough, who last week discussed at length whether Bush "was an idiot," revisited the topic again today. He includes an entire, wonderful series of video Bushisms. John Amato at Crooks and Liars has the video, it's great. The rest of the video is a conservative spin-meister trying to explain that Bush really isn't an idiot.
But of course, Bush is an idiot. He lost an entire American city. He was in charge of the biggest US foreign policy disaster since Vietnam (if not bigger than Vietnam). He's spending hundreds of billions a year on TAX CUTS - not on the war on terror, on TAX CUTS.
George Bush is quite likely the worst president in US history. But there's something worse. Scarborough notes how Bush's mental capacity has declined dramatically since the early 90s. In the early 90s, he was actually intelligent, alert, answered questions quickly and smartly. Bush has changed dramatically as he's aged, to the point where you will not recognize the man he was a little over a decade ago. Scarborough is right, something is going on with Bush and his health, and it is not clear if our country can afford two more years of George Bush's increasingly erratic behavior.
Watch the video of Bush then and now for yourself.
