Voter IQ Tests Needed?

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.

  1. Geez, next thing you know, John Kerry will show up with Bush, since he obviously thinks that all the stupid people are over in the Iraq in the military. They are beginning to sound frighteningly similar.

  2. Its fascenating to me the number of people who still believe John Kerry was talking about the military when he made that stupid coment. Hats off to the Republicans for managing to get the hedlines and the first paragraphs of every news story in the country to focus on their explanation of his comment instead of the written remarks prepared for that speech which clearly show the intent of the comment.
