Are You Smarter Than the President?

I doubt that I am. And I am referring to the CURRENT president, George W. Bush. Not the President-Elect. I doubt that I'm technically book-smarter than him either. [I certainly knew that there aren't 58 states.] Nor would I want to speak in public or run for public office the way candidates must.

However, I bet that if the media had played some of these clips of Obama over and over and over again the way they do with W's gaffes we may have had a different outcome in the election.

I love this clip with Christopher Hitchens. I don't agree with him on everything (he's a rabid atheist for one thing) but he does unfailing work smacking down Maher's audience and Maher himself. Maher is a loon.

I don't care for Obama. Period. The left feels about Sarah Palin like I feel about Obama. Plain and simple. The only difference is they call me either uneducated or racist.

I don't have television so I don't have to listen to idiots like Mahur either. I don't much care for Hitchens flipping the bird and calling people stupid though.

I removed myself from a bunch of bloggers (lefties) that I just can't stomach anymore.

Have a terrific day and weekend. :)

I DESPISE Bill Maher. He is an incredibly pompous ass who is not funny. Nor is he particularly insightful, or well-informed.

Hitchens is right. Maher is popular because he says the same crap over and over until he has a group of people who believe that they, too, are superior to the rest of us hayseeds. When, in fact, they are just lemmings following an idiot that can't really think for himself. He just spouts liberal talking points.

And, he's ugly. And, I don't mean in an "I just don't find him that attractive" kind of way. I mean, in an "I can't stand to look at him, he makes me nauseated" kind of way. (Not nice to talk about looks, I know... but I just have such an unbelievable aversion to that guy...)

Yeah, but sometimes looks aren't just external. The most beautiful person can be physical ugly when they have an evil soul.

Sandee---Hitchens can be pretty foul but he's totally right. Mahur's audience is stupid ... and he's so not funny. He's a miserable person and I'm not sure what he's going to do when Bush is gone. Who will he make fun of??? ROFL
