DU's motives are so transparent. When they figure they have to do this you know conservatives are winning.

I can see how his audiences were carefully screened because he wasn't too smart.

I've always thought he was thin-skinned too--too much so for politics. But I might have gotten that idea from the way Republicans/conservatives were so defensive about him.
I don't ever remember them saying that President Bush was "thin-skinned". Yes that he was "dumb" and yes that he got "mad" But not "thin-skinned".

At least not until it has been pointed out numerous times that Obama is thin skinned and cannot let a criticism of him or his policies go by with out squawking

2. I think he was as thin-skinned as any egotistical moron put in a position he couldn't handle. n/t

3. Apparently he had a very nasty and long lived temper

reports are he was very intolerant of criticism of himself..
Just more BDS and a need to be able to say "Bush was like that too", "Bush did that too, he was even worse". DUers are really quite pathetic.

(If any CUer
s are DU moles please exclude yourself from those who are "pathetic".):D

If anything, Bush NEVER defended himself - and has ALWAYS been VERY gracious to his political opponents.

If they want thin skinned, perhaps they should take a gander at the current White House occupant.

Let's see what does that remind us of? Pearls of wisdom like "I won the election" and "The campaign's over, McCain." Yup, thin skin on an egotistical moron put in a position he couldn't handle.

Exactly, the current POTUS can't stand being questioned and for sure fits the "Thin Skinned" stereotype.

In actuality, Bush seemed to laugh at himself.

Indeed.
The closest thing to defending himself Bush did was in the summer of 2004, when the White House gave a statement basically saying (And rightly so) that the allegations Michael Moore made in the then- recently- released 'Fahrenheit 9/11' were all a crock.

"Thin SKINNED"

Is that a euphimism for something... Raaaaaaacist?
