Comments: A Manly World

I can't speak about Bush much, but from what I've read of Truman and Reagan, calling them mouth-breathers is wholly inaccurate. You should check out "Reagan: In His Own Hand," a compilation of Reagan radio addresses. You probably won't agree with his conclusions, but Reagan's intelligence shines through regardless. I haven't read anything written by Truman, so I can't speak to him directly, but certainly what I have read of the man indicates he was also a pretty smart guy.

Are they saying that Reagan wrote his own speeches? Because he'd be the only President to have done so in quite a long time.

He delivered the speeches well, I don't disagree with that.

Anyhow, it wasn't me calling names, exactly. I just pointed out that FPM was saying that their heros weren't the brainy types.

Admittedly, "mouth-breather" was sort of obnoxious. I should probably have restrained my rhetoric. Sorry. I'm trying hard (snerk) to be Fair and Balanced, after all.
