Whew! What A National Relief: Our New President Reads (for a change!)

As Opposed To The Former President
- Who Just Looked At The Pretty Pictures!

(From Think Progress)

Yesterday in his CNBC interview, President-elect Obama said that he doesn’t plan on living in a “bubble” during his time in office and will be “open to outside information, particularly criticism.” “I very rarely read good press,” he added. “I often read bad press, not because I agree with it, but because I want to get a sense of are there areas where I’m falling short and I can do better.”

This opinion is a drastic departure from President Bush, who never reads newspapers. In 2003, Bush told Fox News, “I glance at the headlines just to kind of (get) a flavor of what’s moving. I rarely read the stories.”

The best part of Obama's statement: that he reads criticism. Can you ever think of a time Bush might have read criticism about his administration? Occasionaly a question from the Waashington Press Corp. might hint of it, but then was usually put down with "I'm the decider" crap.

As we wrote in another post, most of the country didn't believe Bush could read at all! Sure hope he doesn't have to drive much around Dallas:

And The Stupidity Never Stops

Good God! They Still Think She's Intelligent!

I also know, with moral certitude, that the media assassination of her, her character and family, was one of the greatest public injustices of our time and that I’m totally justified in devoting my life to correcting the historical record in my forthcoming film, “Media Malpractice… How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Smeared.”

As to what Sarah Palin thinks about Caroline Kennedy jumping into the political fray:
I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” Palin told conservative filmmaker John Ziegler during an interview Monday for his upcoming documentary film, “How Obama Got Elected.” Excerpts from the interview were posted on YouTube Wednesday evening.
Ahem, the grammatically correct phrase is: "I'll be interested..."

Sorry, Palin's still a dunderhead.

Just a Thought.
