What does "Acting Presidential" mean?
I know that there has been a lot of fluff over Dean and his speech following the Iowa primary and a lot of the media morons have been stating that it wasn't "presidential"...

Even when Kerry dropped the "F" bomb in Rolling Stone the media acted all prim and proper...

So what is "acting presidential"?

Bush can't put sentences together coherently, he mispronounces the names of foreign dignitaries and spends most of his time fundraising ...kind of like a chimp being controlled by the GOP organ grinder......is that presidential???

The dog failed to produce evidence that it did not have programs for the creation of weapons of mass destruction.

7. Was * referring to Adam Clymer
as a "major league asshole" Presidential?

In the Bush era, acting Presidential means "not being drunk."

11. Ask General Clark; he knows. Lead by example.
Don't say one thing and do another.

12. Don't speak too quickly...you never know what gaffe any candidate
may make...

Its just that we are electing the leader of our country...does that mean this person has to have lead a life without sin or any kind of problem?

How perfect are they supposed to be?
