President of the United States

Here’s some reasons why it is hard to believe that George W. Bush is our president:
*These reasons are based on the premise that the US President is the most intelligent, most qualified, has the best character, and is just the all-around best person to lead our country. 

  1. What are the odds that two people in the same family are both in the top .0000000000000000001% of Americans that fit the criteria to be worthy of presidential consideration?  It would almost be like 2 brothers playing quarterback in back to back Super Bowls!  Seriously though, Bill and Hillary, George H. Bush and George W. Bush, any time I see two people from the same family, it just smells funny.
  2. What the heck was his experience, he didn’t win the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, or any prize.  He worked for a pitiful Major League Baseball team.  He also got a job at his father’s oil company, but by all accounts, he wasn’t too successful at that job either.  What were people looking at when they voted for him, what did he do that made people say, “he is the greatest living American I can think of, he is someone I want as my president.
  3. He somehow managed to avoid the Vietnam War during an era that was so low on soldiers it needed to draft them.  I can understand trying to avoid a war when you’re asked to fight in one, you don’t want to die.  But I don’t agree with making other people going to war when you had the opportunity to fight in one yourself but did not. 

Listen, I am sure George W. Bush is a good guy and he’s got his heart in the right place (actually, I not sure of it, but for argument’s sake, let’s assume that I think George is a good guy), but I just think there’s probably 897,457 people out there that are better qualified.  People teaching at Ivy League Schools, people running successful business, churches, and people that really care about the environment, poverty, and the way America is perceived around the world.  But this is not my point.  My point is this, the American people elected someone who I think is far from the best candidate and America is still alive and well. 

I guess you could say, we’re fighting in an unjustified war with Iraq where thousands of young US soldiers have died, we’re waltzing into a recession, home prices are plummeting, every American is having their wires tapped, and any US Attorney General that was investigating Republican abuses of power has been wrongfully terminated, but honestly who cares?  We’ve got Brittany Spears and the Writers Strike to worry about.  I know that I have a big game of Madden coming up, if I win, I’m in the finals!

  2. Listen Rob I’ve been to Dave’s blog and noticed someone left a comment, as me, saying I liked his blog better. That’s crap. Your blog is the only blog for me. Some times I read off to your blog 5 or six times in a night. And as far as him rating stuff I don’t think that’s cool. Of course people are going to flock to the site that rates stuff, it’s only natural. I suggest you rate more stuff on your site. Take Ed’s idea and rate your friends. Or rate Pink Floyd Songs, or RedSox, or wrestlers, or rate Dave’s entries. I’d give them all 0/5’s. Hahaha High Five.PeaceThe Real JM
