what a difference a presidency makes

I saw this bit on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show a couple of days ago: Governor Bush vs. President Bush.

    Hey, if Ashcroft can sound like NAACP when he is grilled by Congress over his nomination, then Bush can sound all lefty in the debate. It’s all about appearing in the center during the elections.

    I saw that too. The Daily Show is one of smartest political commentaries on television. I have learned my leason. I will never let Bush dupe me with his words again, not that I was duped, but I wanted to believe him.

    If that was lefty, I think maybe I should move to Cuba.

    Hey, if Clinton could pretend to ‘triangulate’ to the center, why can’t Bush?

    No offense, but why are you getting your political news off television? That medium is vapidity personified. It’s a known fact that when the optic nerves are engaged to that extent, intelligence is (for the moment) greatly reduced. Processing the images takes far too much brain power to leave serious cognitive capacity unaffected.

    Also, if you were not ‘duped’, why did you want to believe him? Was it the insidious power of television? ;-|

    i don’t subscribe to any political party, so you don’t have to bring in Clinton. Candidates from both parties hover around the center during the elections.

    I never said that I got my news from television. I only commented on the “vapidity” by claiming the the best news source on television is one that parodies “real” news programs. So, Big John, no offense taken.

    The desire to believe what one says is a strong desire that everyone should hold. There is nothing wrong with wanting to believe that our leader is half as good as what he claims to be. I only had the desire.
