Lest we forget...

George W Bush 'was projecting calm' with 9/11 blank look

George W Bush says his blank reaction to the first news of the Sept 11 attacks while US president was a conscious decision to project an aura of calm in a crisis.

In a rare interview with the National Geographic Channel, Mr Bush reflected on what was going through his mind when he was informed that a second passenger jet had hit New York's World Trade Center.

Mr Bush was visiting a Florida classroom at the time, and the incident - which was caught by television cameras - has often been used by critics to ridicule his apparently dazed response to the attack...

And remember it was on his watch that the powers that be REALLY started taking the pi$$. :angry:

Stupid, stupid man.

Obama has been criticised heavily, trust me, but he has much more charisma and oratory skills than GWB who always came across as a right numpty (even though his real IQ is surprisingly high and he had the aptitude to become a pilot in the Air Force, though he was a Guard reservist). Ben Bernanke gets derided as a buffoon by arrogantly printing more cash but is really frighteningly bright in other ways when he had near perfect SAT scores and won himself a scholarship.

I guess that's why we distrust him so much...because we've already had the "benefit" of a smooth-talking used car salesman as PM..and know from hard experience that they are crooked.

much as we sleight brown,he was at least honestly incompetent and misguided,rather than pulling of true malevolence with a glib smile and social panache.

blair was FAR more dangerous.
