Liberals, including those in the mainstream media, have had a jolly good time of it in recent years by ridiculing the native intelligence (lack thereof!) of W., AKA, America's 43rd President.
According to the left, in a head to head IQ challenge with sawdust, W. would come in second place. Or worse.
Admittedly, W. has his shortcomings, especially with regard to public speaking. Pity he was not raised by a teleprompter, as was the case with the current occupant of the White House.
Then again, W. has the advantage of being a citizen and was fully eligible for the presidency, gifts not accruing to the Marxist illegal alien who has taken over the Oval Office.
For the record, despite his alleged lack of brilliance, W. managed to whip leftist intellectuals Al Gore and John Kerry for the presidency.
Even more impressive, however, was W.'s ability to outsmart liberals into doing what was best for America despite their natural inclinations to do otherwise.
Take the Iraq war, for example.
W., the dunce, was clearly out of his league in trying to convince much smarter anti-war Democrats to vote for military intervention.
Yet, somehow the fellow with the pea brain was able to fool folks like Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, John Kerry, and a host of other Mensa type Democrats into voting for war.
When the war eventually became unpopular, W. continued to insist that the invasion was the correct course.
On the other hand, Democrats who had voted to authorize military intervention, howled that W. had deceived and fooled them into supporting an immoral and unjust war.
Blah, blah, blah.
Here you have a man whom liberals claim is barely bright enough to blink, yet he has the intellectual wherewithal to fool the best and brightest the left has to offer?
W.'s legacy as a deceiver of ultra-smart liberals grew even more storied as Nancy Pelosi now claims that the CIA and the Bush administration deceived her about the treatment of terrorists.
As reported at the Washington Post, in part:
"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (Calif.) assertion at a press conference this morning that the Bush administration and the Central Intelligence Agency misled her and the Congress regarding the treatment of suspected terrorists adds further fuel to the fire on an issue that has been on a low boil for weeks.
Asked whether she was accusing the CIA of lying to her during a 2002 briefing on the use of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques," Pelosi said: "Yes, misleading the Congress of the United States, misleading the Congress of the United States. I am."
Again, the burning question: How can a fellow with all the brain power of mud fool so many sophisticated Marxists?
