Before a crowd of Republican volunteers and activists Bush praised Kilgore as a man who grew up on a farm and "understands how the common man thinks." Kilgore, he said, "doesn’t have a lot of fancy airs.”I'm so sick of this "common man" rubbish!!! Ignorance and simple-mindedness is not a virtue. It is a curse!
The President is a fine example of everything that's wrong with this approach. Here's a man who doesn't read, can't speak English, doesn't care what's going on in the world, doesn't care about the people's problems, aspires to nothing, and is a disgrace to our once great nation.
We want leaders who are learned, who are diplomats, who are great orators, who appreciate the arts, who understand the sciences, and who care for the plight of the common man. And such men are not common.
