George Bush is a Total Incompetent.

The other day, that is what one of my friends said: "George Bush is a total incompetent." I don't really know much about him so I didn't really say much. But I was thinking about it later on. I can see why people think that. After all, George Bush has said things like:

"I want to thank my friend, Senator Bill Frist, for joining us today. He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me."

"Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?"

"You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.''

"It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."

"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."

And when I read those things I laugh out loud! It's funny! But, anyone who is in front of a camera so much and under so much scrutiny will make lots funny mistakes. That doesn't mean he is incompetent.

People also say he is incompetent for bigger reasons than the funny things he has said. But it may just be that Condoleezza Rice is actually correct.... Whatever the case may be, I'm sure he is a lot smarter than most people give him credit for. Which I think this article about his love of reading helps to support too. In 2006, he read 95 books! In the last couple years, he has read about a book a week. (He also reads the Bible cover to cover each year and a daily devotional.)
