Maybe Dubya isn't completely hopeless, supposedly had no idea what conservatism even stood for
Matt Latimer, a former special assistant to the president for speechwriting, is the author of a new book titled "Speech-less: Tales of a White House Survivor," which includes a number of embarrassing Bush anecdotes including the assertion that the former president was confused about the very concept of the conservative political movement.

"Do you know how many people have emailed me and said, 'Who the heck is Matt Latimer?'" Dana Perino asked. "Who is this young man? What is he talking about? He doesn't think the president understands the conservative movement? This is a man who won the presidency twice, with a larger margin on the reelection, so how could he possibly not understand the conservative movement?"

The only ways that someone can understand today's conservative movement is through delusion, severe brain damage, or through trepanation.

1. Prosecute him anyway
He made a conscious decision to screw America up and lie us into invading Iraq. Let the gavel fall and the trial begin...

2. Oh, and Ken Lay didn't know anything about energy futures
Yep, money just fell out of the sky into Kenny boy's pocket. No sense asking any questions about that! Similarly, George Dubya didn't know anything about politics, or paybacks, or slimy tactics, or hypocrisy, or cheating, or fraud, or waste, or anything! Nothing's his fault, now, in the past, or ever.

5. I doubt if DimSon knows much of anything. The political hacks and criminals
surrounding him know plenty, however. They're the ones who "won" * the WH twice. I've always seen * as a witless tool.

6. This makes him worse, IMO
He had no idea what it stood for, yet had no qualms about using it to gather support for his extremist agenda.

His picture should be next to Webster's entry for

sociopath so'-see-o-path, n. A person possessing no morals or conscience; an evil person.
