As the Facebook world hummed with the news ex-President, George W. Bush now had his own Facebook page, it became proof positive very quickly that George W. Bush still can’t string two words together in a grammatically correct fashion.
On his first Facebook post, George W. Bush’s wrote, “Since leaving office, President Bush has remained active. He has visited 20 states and 8 countries; given over 65 speeches; launched the George W. Bush Presidential Center; participated in 4 policy conferences through The Bush Institute; finished the first draft of his memoir, “Decision Points”; and partnered with President Clinton to establish the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. More on his activities in future posts…”. or did he?
Now either George Bush hasn’t figured out you don’t talk about yourself in third person on Facebook, or, someone else wrote the post for him. Either way, it doesn’t bode well for his intelligence or for the future interesting nature of his Facebook page, now does it?
His second post, even more fascinating (she says, covering a huge yawn) was this – “Laura Bush’s memoir, “Spoken from the Heart,” is #1 on the “New York Times” Bestseller List for the third consecutive week. To learn more, visit her website at www.laurawbush.com”
Now call me suspicious but, if George W. Bush actually wrote either of those posts himself, I’ll paint myself red and run naked around Capitol Hill.
As a President who always had problems with people calling him “stupid”, you’d think he’d spend some time trying to resurrect his abysmal intellectual reputation by at least writing a couple of Facebook posts himself, wouldn’t you? After all, it takes less than a minute to write a Facebook post, a minute even an ex-President who’s spending most of his time on vacation or shooting innocent animals must still have time to do.
Sad, but not surprising though. I spent years living in Texas when George W. Bush was Governor. Back then, he was known as being one brick shy of a load, as the late writer and humorist, Molly Ivins, was always quick to point out. As she once so famously said about George W. Bush, “”The poor man who is currently our president has reached such a point of befuddlement that he thinks stem cell research is the same as taking human lives, but that 40,000 dead Iraqi civilians are progress toward democracy.” So, it’s not surprising to realize, from his Facebook page, he really didn’t get any smarter nor more media-savvy.
I mean, seriously, if I wanted a rehash of George W. Bush’s mediocre life or a quick blurb about his wife’s latest boring book, I’d read The Republican National Committee’s website and not George W. Bush’s fake Facebook page.
