A Look At Bush's Brain

Well now we know. The question as to why Bush doesn't listen to reason is that he doesn't hear the same as everyone else does. He doesn't read the same or see the same. He is quite unique in that he is apparently a total moron and he still convinced a lot of people that he was capable of being the President of the United States of America. Was he an actor before he was president? Didn't he play Forrest Gump so convincingly?

President Bush has said that there is no controversy over why he doesn't listen to the people. He does, he says the people agree with him
"Last November, the American people said they were frustrated and wanted a change in our strategy in Iraq," he said April 24, ahead of a veto showdown with congressional Democrats over their desire to legislation a troop withdrawal timeline. "I listened. Today, General David Petraeus is carrying out a strategy that is dramatically different from our previous course."
Yup, he slipped the bonds of gravity and started floating away. Here is where he hit escape velocity.
"I recognize there are a handful there, or some, who just say, `Get out, you know, it's just not worth it. Let's just leave.' I strongly disagree with that attitude. Most Americans do as well."
The truth of the matter is that a large majority of Americans do agree with that statement and we're starting to get pissed off that Bush doesn't get it.
In one poll released Friday by CBS and the New York Times, 63 percent supported a troop withdrawal timetable of sometime next year. Another earlier this month from USA Today and Gallup found 59 percent backing a withdrawal deadline that the U.S. should stick to no matter what's happening in Iraq.
Again and again and then one more time; Bush understands all of this, he just doesn't care what the people think. He cannot give this up, he has nothing else to offer, no goals, no nothing. His domestic agenda does not exist. Condeleeza Rice is trying to salvage something on the diplomatic front, even having talks with Iran. Something she has said repeatedly that she would not do.

Bush just thinks he can lie his way through this, but he's being, not acting stupid.
Wayne Fields, an expert on presidential rhetoric at Washington University in St. Louis, said the president's new language exploits the fact that there is no one alternative strategy for the public to coalesce around, which clearly spells out how to bring troops home. Bush can argue that people agree with him because no one can define the alternative, Fields said.
The truth of the matter is that he is either out of touch, or he's lying. Either way it's just what you would expect from the worst president in U.S. history.
