    virtually everything, he was a competent politician. An incompetent president, but not a bad politician. Dowd is right that Sarah Palin is incompetent, as in incompetent at everything shy tries. And as bad a president as Bush was, at least he didn't quit. IMO Palin really is in a class of her own. She's not the evilist (that would be Dick Cheney), but she is the most prominent politician who knows absolutely nothing.

      but he sure spent a hell of a lot of time on vacation.

      Bush spent a total of 967 days, or about 32 months on vacation or at Camp David. If you figure one month of vacation per year (He was Commander in Chief, after all, and that's what his troops and officers get for vacation) and slide the rest of the time to the end, he'd have been gone after almost 6 years: so he gave us 1 1/2 terms of actual service.  

      Bush's competence is an open question: he was surrounded by people collected by his father, Rove and Cheney.

        Would you have wanted him to put in more time at the office?

        Just imagine how bad things would be if he'd been more productive!

        If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

      than Romney.  He is so encased in his own little plastic bubble that he doesn't even realize that the oxygen has run out.
