This short Youtube video shows George Bush providing his opinion on Barack Obama, saying, “I certainly don’t know what he believes in. The only foreign policy thing I remember he said was he’s gonna attack Pakistan and embrace Ahmenijhad.” The videographer goes on to show how both of these claims are completely false, providing good clips of Obama giving his consistent foreign policy statements on opening communication with countries we are currently on hostile terms with, and working to remove Al Qaeda from Pakistan.
I like the videographer’s question: is George Bush astute enough to know he is lying in the Fox interview? Or, here’s my question: is George Bush learning disabled? Does he suffer from executive function problems, with what is termed a “hostile cognitive bias” whereby he misperceives others and “persists in representing interpersonal [or international] conflicts in a biased and inflexible fashion?” You decide.
