It's too bad Bush isn't a reader.

Is this true? With Mrs. Bush being a former librarian, it is my understanding that the President is a reader. Perhaps he is not reading the history books that Charley Reese thinks vital in regard to foreign policy and empire.

Too bad Charley Reese is an idiot.

I hope Bush isn't a reader, because all there is out there in bias-land is crap like this.

My prayer is that Americans will wake up and re-establish the republic the Founding Fathers gave us

Charley's only about 140 years too late on that wish. It is amusing to read rants about the administration's myopia, or naivete, alongside statements like "We won't lose the peace if we hand Iraq over to the Iraqis and say goodbye."

Arguments against entanglements are fair, and debate about whether we should have gone into Iraq is fine. But I don't think it's even a remotely good idea to invade a country, destroy its infrastructure, and then leave.

It is a rather subjective description but I have read that observation before, dating back several years.

Some attributed it (not being a 'reader') to dyslexia.

----------------------------------------

I've heard this before and though I don't have links to sources I remember in the 2000 campaign it was something of an issue that he not only didn't read much as an adult but also that he wasn't well read even during college days where it is said that his graduation was due to family status and not scholastic achievement. As president there was an interview (fox news perhaps) in which he is said to have claimed that he didn't watch the news but depended on his advisors to inform him on what they felt was important for him to know. For what it's worth that's the word on the street.
