Bush Didn't Stay Up to Watch the Speech
Karl Rove watched it for him.

What would happen if we were attacked after 9 p.m.?

Would someone even wake him up?

4. Would it matter?
He isn't in charge anyway. It wouldn't matter if he was awake or not, he'd idly sit by and watch the "grownups" make all of the decisions then he'd have a press conference to announce "his" plan.

This further exemplifies his total disconnect with the events of the world. The man is intellectually lazy and devoid of curiosity. He has a room temperature IQ and is PROUD of it.

8. I highly doubt it. Bush was a dirtytrickcampaign strategist for 3 decades.
They just put out this type of horseshit impression so the public doesn't see Bush as a cutthroat dirty tricks campaigner. In other words, the truth about WHO GWBush really is.

9. Republicans also said he would run on his record
That's going to be interesting.

Maybe he could teach us to fly fish and cut shrub. Or go mountain biking in Texas and fall off and hurt ourselves. Or how about a class in sarcastic facial expressions - Sneer 101. Or how about just teaching all of our kids to grow up to be nasty little jerks.

16. Bingo. FratBoy, Lee Atwater, and Karl Rove worked together on...
1. Reagan's 1980 win over Carter (Poppy Bush was VP);

2. Reagan's 1984 win over Mondale (Poppy Bush was VP);

3. Poppy Bush's 1988 win over Dukakis;

....Lee Atwater died of cancer in 1991, which may have been a big reason for:

4. Poppy Bush's 1992 loss to Clinton.

No doubt in my mind that Rove and FratBoy continued to work together behind the scenes to attempt to bring down Clinton during the eight years of his Presidency, 1992 to 2000.

And then we have the Coup of December 2000, the ultimate political dirty trick.

10. Makes me wonder how he's going to
stay awake to make his own speech. I'd give everything in my bank account to have the teleprompter fail and have him have to give the speech from memory - he'd curl up in a fetal position and whine.

24. What a fool!


How disengaged can you get?
What clear thinking person would not want to look at and critique the opponent?

All he needed to say was "Yes, I watched it. I'll be ready for him. Bring it on!"

He was drunk bottom line.

26. 'Course not....
Then he might be asked to provide an intelligent assessment. Couldn't do that....wouldn't be prudent.

28. Of course he didn't. He wouldn't know what he was looking at.
He had to wait until today so that he could get someone to explain it to him.
