George W. Bush's greatest sin

No, it wasn't that he was teh stoopid or that he was a fascist. It turns out that the problem with Bush—and every other President we've ever had, it seems—was that unlike Obama, he was a square:

During his first 100 days as president of the United States, Barack Obama revealed how different he is from all the white men who preceded him in the Oval Office, and the differences run deeper — in substance and style — than the color of his skin.

Barack Hussein Obama is the nation’s first hip president.

This, of course, is subject to debate. But watch him walk. Listen to him talk. See the body language, the expressions, the clothes. He’s got attitude, rhythm, a sense of humor, contemporary tastes.
And that's just what we need most of all in a time of crisis. A guy who won't make the kids roll their eyes when they're seen with him out in public. Yeah.

I mean, according to Politico's Sam Fulwood III, he just can't help but be a hepcat. Check out the next paragraph, Daddy-O (with my emphasis):
This much is clear: Whether dealing with the Wall Street mess, shifting troops from Iraq to Afghanistan or fumbling to fill his Cabinet, Obama leans heavily on personal panache to push political policies. Truth be told, his style is rooted in something elusive and hard to define. Pure and simple, it’s hip.
That's right, even when he's fucking up by nominating a bunch of tax cheats to Cabinet-level positions, he's just so goddamn cool.

That may well be the first time the word "fumbling" has been associated with someone being "hip," by the way. But then again, Barack is an inspirational man of many firsts.

If you don't mind throwing up a little in your mouth, read the whole gushing, fawning thing, which includes the obligatory references to Michelle as "obviously cool" for setting trends like (I shit you not) "Tending her own garden!" This kind of toadying would be really depressing if it wasn't quite so funny. (Or is that the other way around?)

Update: The hipness, it just, just...radiates from him. DO NOT CLICK BELOW, lest you are prepared for Obama's sheer coolness to freeze your retinas solid!!!


Um, I guess it's the sunglasses. Yeah, sunglasses are hip, right?
