  •  My favorite Bush estupido remark (5+ / 0-)

    was about Brazil - when he was totally unaware that there are black people there.  Embarrassing himself in Germany.  He needed Condi to ear whisper for him then.

    •  Yeah, that was bad (5+ / 0-)

      but I think that there's a difference here between stupid and ignorant.  The truly stupid are deserving of our pity and our help --- I don't want a truly stupid person as POTUS, of course, but I don't look down on them --- many are doing the best they can.

      Bush is not stupid (maybe not as bright as you or me, but not stupid).  He's ignorant, and, worse, he's willfully ignorant.  Again, if that single parent working two jobs doesn't know much about current events, that's excusable.  But Bush has no excuse.  He's not stupid, he's not overly busy, he has tons of assistance available, he just doesn't want to know.  I don't have pity or sympathy for Bush, I have contempt for him
