PAT: Yeah, I do, too. She says it's time for W to weigh in. And, you know, she refers to him as W out of sheer affection. You know she does.
GLENN: She wants him to weigh in on the mosque because she thinks that George W. Bush is going to agree with Barack Obama.
PAT: So that Obama's got a little bit of a cover. Because he's getting some flack.
GLENN: Why would you want cover from a guy who is too stupid to know
GLENN: exactly how to tie his own tie?
PAT: Yeah, yeah.
STU: That was they painted him as the dumbest man in America for eight years.
GLENN: No, no. No, no, let's put this into perspective. Let's not just say they did. People like what's his name on CNN that's how memorable he is Hawaii boy.
STU: Oh, Rick Sanchez?
GLENN: Rick Sanchez. Rick Sanchez says that he is one of the dumbest men alive.
STU: Does he?
GLENN: This guy, this guy.
SANCHEZ: How can you get a volcano in Iceland? Isn't it too when you think of a volcano, you think of, like, Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there.
PAT: That never gets old, never gets old.
GLENN: Just play it again.
SANCHEZ: I was just asking Chad, how can you get a volcano in Iceland? Isn't it too when you think of a volcano, you think of, like, Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there.
GLENN: Okay. So people like this say that George Bush is stupid. So why would you want I wouldn't, I would never call for Rick Sanchez to weigh in on anything, on anything. We could be doing a study on stupid people and I wouldn't think that he would have a valuable opinion on stupid people. So why would these people want George W. Bush to do that? Isn't that weird?
STU: It's always about politics.
GLENN: That's all it is. That's all it is.
STU: Maureen Dowd has been criticizing George W. Bush, you know, you know, just incredibly, it's been like her main job for the past 10 years. And now all of a sudden where she thinks she can get one little half a percent political point out of it, she's willing to bring him up as an example.
PAT: The hypocrisy is just, it's stunning. Eugene Robinson at the Washington Post is also looking for some help from George W. Bush. He says, I would love to hear from former president Bush on this issue. He held
GLENN: You didn't want to hear about anything from George W. Bush when he was in office!
PAT: He held Ramadan iftar dinners in the White House as part of a much broader effort to show that our fight against the Al Qaeda murderers who attacked us on 9/11 was not a crusade against Islam. He was absolutely right on this point, and it would be helpful to hear his views. Yes, wouldn't it be helpful?
PAT: For Barack Obama, who got himself into hot water?
GLENN: Well, no, hang on just a second. That's assuming that George Bush wouldn't say, yes, they have a right to build a mosque, but let's look into the finances, let's look at where they are getting money, let's look at who this guy is. I mean, remember George Bush and Barack Obama not exactly in lockstep.
PAT: No. I'd love him I'd love for him to come out and sound off on the issue and then also sound, "While I'm at it, let me talk about the war, the way that's being prosecuted and ruined, the deficit, the deadification of America, the Social Security and the healthcare reform. Let me talk about some stuff."
GLENN: Social Security, remember everybody was saying that Social Security is collapsing? Barack Obama yesterday said there's no emergency.
STU: No crisis, yeah.
GLENN: There's no crisis in Social Security. I've got to get his dictionary, man. Because we don't speak the same language. I don't there's no crisis. Does crisis in his dictionary mean that there's no money? Crisis equal money? Because that's true. There is no money in Social Security.
