First, former pop star Linda Ronstadt, you remember,"You're no good, you know, you're, you are no good, baby, you're no good. Well, Linda has joined the long list of celebrities1 and other public figures who berated2 President Bush for his lack of intelligence. But it is not just singers and movie stars who are suggesting that George Bush's mental weakness is damaging America‘s credibility at home and abroad.
Ronstadt said this earlier: “The Dixie Chicks said they were embarrassed he was from Texas...Well I‘m embarrassed George Bush is from the United States [The president] is an idiot.He's enormously incompetent3, on both sides, on both of the domestic and international scenes.”

That is, no doubt, a sentiment that is shared in some of the capitals of our friends and foes4 alike. Maybe because the president has such a long history of public gaffes5, but is that evidence that George W. Bush is stupid or just inarticulate.

Take a look, and decide for yourself.

GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I think tide turning, see, as I remember, I was raised in the desert, but tides cannot turn—it is easy to see a tide turned. Did I say those words?

No question that the enemy has tried to spread sectarian violence.And they use violence as a tool to do that.

We need an energy bill that encourages consumption.

Our enemies are innovative6 and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people. And neither do we; we must never stop thinking about how best to defend our country.

I am the decider, and I decide what is best.

The United States of America is engaged in a war against an extremist group of folks.

Families is where our nation finds hope; where wings take dream.

If you don't stand up for anything, you don't stand up for – anything.

If you don't stand for something, you don't stand for anything.

Fool me once, shame on you—it fooled me—we can‘t get fooled again.

In my State of the—my State of the Union—our state, my speech to the nation, whatever you want to call it.

At the high school level and find out that the literacy level of our children are appalling7.

I hear there is rumors8 on the Internets that we are gonna have a draft.

You are working hard to put food on your family.

I know that human being and fish can coexist peacefully.

Tribal9 sovereignty means that, it's sovereign. I mean, you're a—you're a -

you have been given sovereignty, and you are viewed as—a sovereign entity10. And, therefore, the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities11.

They (misunderstand...)underestimate the compassion12 of our country. I think they (misunderstood) underestimated the will and determination of the commander in chief, too.
