Maybe it's just me, but I don't think being a better orator makes someone "come across as a lot smarter". Last I checked, Dubya is the only president to ever graduate from two Ivy League schools. People that think he's stupid solely for factors like a southern/Texas accent and not being a poignant speaker are really ignorant. Bush was just as successful of a businessman as Romney was, so I think they're both good in that aspect.Originally Posted by Dittohead not!
That one wasn't Bush's fault. For all the crap about Republicans being the "party of no" this term, the Big Tenters were stalwart in trying to marginalize Bush and any ability of his to finalize law. Therefore, I can't say for certainty that he was adamant against working along both aisles.Romney also has a history of being able to work with the opposing party, which is another thing that is sorely needed and that Obama lacks.
