McCartney's Put-Down of Bush Draws Jeers from Republicans
The 67-year-old former Beatle attacked Bush's intelligence after receiving the Gershwin Prize from the Library of Congress on Wednesday.
All together now . . .
"It's a fantastic honor (for) the Gershwin family to give me this incredible award and for me to be awarded it by the Library of Congress. And in fact, after the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is," McCartney said, drawing cheers from the audience.
Marc Thiessen, a former speechwriter for Bush, called the comment "crass" and "rude."
"One, it shows no class. Two, it's ignorant," Thiessen told FoxNews.com, noting that Bush's wife, Laura, is a librarian.
"They made literacy an issue during his presidency and he is probably, as Karl Rove has pointed out, one of the best read presidents in recent history," he said.
Add to the above list the fact that Bush received an MBA from Harvard.
Just more evidence of how lacking in class the left is. Note that the article said the audience cheered. If I am not mistaken, Hussein and Michelle Obama were in the audience. But then, we've already covered the lack of class on the left so I am only repeating myself now.
The most ironic thing about this is that the one person with class, and the target of these jokes, refuses to join in. He said again this week in Grand Rapids, Michigan that he will not criticize Obama. He just quietly goes about his business while these idiots make asses of themselves. Who's the dummy?
