Today's poll question; do you think that former American President George W. Bush is an idiot? He has some new memoirs being released and he recently did his first sit down interview since he retired from politics. So many pundits on the left have fought so hard to paint him as an idiot that it seems to have become part of the narrative. Yesterday I has having a friendly chat with someone at work who told me that George Bush was mentally retarded and that the greatest travesty in the history of democracy was Al Gore not winning Florida in 2000. I just smiled, said something nice about Obama, and changed the subject. It is best to keep politics out of the workplace. I despise Al Gore and I like George Bush.
Does that make me an idiot? I am not defending all the man's policies. TARP was a nightmare. He made mistakes, but he gets the most flak for military decisions and the man is loved by many military families.
