Excellent question, O Beloved Leader. Perhaps the answer is, “Because you were a total doofus”?
A better question, to which I don’t know the answer: Where were the grown-ups in the Republican Party when this doofus was elected, and re-elected, to an office for which he was intellectually and temperamentally unfit?
Footnote No, Matt Latimer’s account of what he saw and heard writng speeches for GWB doesn’t reflect much credit on Latimer’s morals, or for that matter on his brains. But that’s no reason to disbelieve him, or to ignore the questions raised by the facts he recounts. Like Wall Street, the Republicans had no capacity for noticing when an asset was absurdly over-valued and likely to turn toxic.
