President Bush, asked why he was surprised by election results:
“I thought when all was said and done that the people would understand the importance of taxes, and the importance of security”
Hunh? Is the President of the United States actually suggesting that the voters of the country are just not bright enough to understand what is important to their country?
UPDATE: At a later press conference with Donald Rumsfeld announcing his resignation we got this from Rumsfeld: “this little-understood, unfamiliar war…. It is not well-known, it is not well understood, it is complex for people to comprehend.”
Again with the implications that the people of the U.S just aren’t bright enough to understand the issues that are important to our country.
