Stupid is as stupid does

Looking into the wisdom of Google-answers reveals the following

Forrest's version of the saying means that stupidity is not just a
surface thing derived from a person's appearance. Stupidity is a
matter of deeds, not looks. Like the other versions, it comes down to
this: judge people by what they do, not by how they appear.

I readily admit that Dubya looks stupid from time to time. Most of us would do so occationally with a camera stuck up our face nearly 24/7. Let's have a look at his deeds and see what can be learned..

In Iraq 26 millions has been liberated from the dude who really can aspire for the nutjob title and Iraq seems to be the major example for the liberal left to shout about. In the words of Ralph Peters:
And it’s about power. Had Bill Clinton invaded Iraq and deposed Saddam, the Left would have cheered their throats raw, praising him as one of history’s greatest liberators. The rhetoric about Iraq isn’t about justice, or the Iraqi people, or even about the horrors of war.

Sure you can find ugly news about what's happening in Iraq and if you try a little harder it's also possible to find the better news. Chrenkoff is the man who makes it easy.

Iraqi refugees in Iran chooses to repatriate. It seems to me that many prefer Iraq "under Bush" compared to Iraq under Saddam...

Since last year, more than half of all Iraqi refugees in Iran – an estimated 107,000 people – have returned to their homeland. Most of them have gone back of their own accord, some 12,500 with UNHCR assistance. The rate of departure has been even higher among refugees staying in camps, with more than 80 percent of them choosing to repatriate.

How does the Iraqi people view the future? Like leftwing liberals? Not so...

More than 71 percent of those polled said they "strongly intend" to vote, and 67 percent said they believe Iraq will be ready to hold elections by the end of January, compared with 24 percent who said the country won't be ready.

Just a few words about another of Dubyas deeds (ok, he didn't do it alone), Afghanistan. Talibans are going down, education, rebuilding, economy and education are on its way up. Read more about it by visiting Mr Chrenkoff again. Yep, he covers Afghanistan too.

The slogan of which i assume was born after the liberation:

"Afghanistan: The Friendliest Country in the World, Possibly the Universe."
