Somebody Check Cafferty's Kool Aid

Yes, it's CNN. Yes, it's Jack Cafferty. But it looks like fun to push back on this thing:
Russia invades Georgia and President Bush goes on vacation. Our president has spent one-third of his entire two terms in office either at Camp David, Maryland, or at Crawford, Texas, on vacation.
Only fake presidents can take vacations in Hawaii while Russia invades Georgia and get away with it--real ones are always on call as Hillary noted in her 3 AM ad. Cafferty knows this, which can only mean he's fallen so far in the tank for Obama that his mind is gone. Presidents need to occasionally venture out of DC, even if it's to play golf or grab photo ops on a yacht. For Jack's sake, here's a photo of the vacationing president vacationing:

There's more. Summarizing, Bush should have seen 9/11 coming in August just like everyone else in government, like Richard Clarke. Damn him. After all, he had that August PDB to work with (trutherism?). Too bad he never looked back on past PDBs while he was waiting for the missing W keys to be replaced. Guess he really was intellectually incurious. But Cafferty's target wasn't Dumbya, he built that strawman to tear down McCain:
It occurs to me that John McCain is as intellectually shallow as our current president. When asked what his Christian faith means to him, his answer was a one-liner. "It means I'm saved and forgiven."
True he's no C.S. Lewis but that's basically being saved in a nutshell. Some tend to mistake fancy words for intelligence, going as far as seeing Bush as an incurious moron slacker who caused a hurricane after starting a war over an attack he could have prevented by not going to Crawford, Texas before the attack. And that John McSame is just like same, and a phony Christian to boot!

After reading a column like that it's not hard to imagine Mr. Cafferty at some point chanting 'O bom A' to the master among the European throngs. As if not enough, CNN gave us a two-fer with a same day profile of the man for whom change can't happen fast enough. Sharp contrast to the black hole known as the missing Annenberg Challenge years. Oops, can we use that term anymore?
