Nevertheless, our finding of increased response time during lying is congruent with a 2001 report of a convicted murderer filmed while lying and telling the truth.20 Although recounting similar material on both occasions, this person exhibited slower speech with longer pauses and more speech disturbance when lying. He also displayed fewer bodily movements. Previous meta-analyses of behavioural lying studies have likewise pointed to speech disturbance, increased response latency and a decrease in other motor behaviours in the context of attempted deception. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...
originally posted by: IgnoranceIsntBlisssEveryday you see allegations that Bush is a fool, an idiot, he's stupid, incompetent and so on. In truth it's a mixture of his act and what lying with virtually every breath he can muster is doing to his brain he when tries to talk. The incompetence that's become the legacy of his presidency, and it's all an act to coverup their true intentions so they can get away with mass murder.
With Bush this is interesting because what few people seem to remember is that he used to be able to lay down the 'law' in some debate... long before he 'won' his true career of constant and ongoing lies and deception that is.

The backwoods good ol boy routine is Bush's impersonation of how he views American's, most particularly those he's trying to have self-identify with him. He's laughing in their faces. His entire act in one carefully crafted and groomed by some of the world's top propagandists. If you doubt that then you have much to learn about the spectre of politicians and presidents
There's a choice documentary specifically about and titled "Stupidity". In it they study the entire spectrum of stupidity, and the important view they present is how smart people like comedians use stupidity to be successful. The part important for this discussion is the surprise twist ending where they assert that perhaps GWB could be using stupidity to achieve "success".
Hillary Clinton treated for blood clot in her head
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was treated with blood thinners on Monday at a New York hospital to help dissolve a blood clot in her head and doctors were confident she would make a full recovery.
Clinton was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday due to the clot that was discovered during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said.
The clot was located in the vein between the brain and and the skull behind Clinton's right ear and did not result in any stroke or neurological damage, her doctors said in a statement.

I think my favorite Bushism by far is...
“There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.” GWB
Here you can see a recent shot of when a flashlight was used show she could find her way out of that rally:
Her being held up at a speech:
Her almost being carried up the steps:
Her "handler" possibly carrying a diazepam injector for incase she enters another seizure:

So according to her own campaign schedule, she is taking 7 days
out of the first 14 days in August...simply off???
No campaigning, no speaking. That is a very big concern.
If she were to be installed into the White House, who
is going to run the country while she can barely function?
Bill? Nope, he could not even stay awake for her lifetime moment.
Poor Old Low Energy Hillary Can’t Walk the Gay Pride Walk
The headlines in the biased media wing of the Democrats' Party were all filled with glee over Hillary's "surprise" appearance in the parade. But the real surprise is that poor old Hillary didn't have the energy to walk the gay pride march. According to the New York Times, Low energy Hillary only lasted about 15 minutes and "four blocks or so" before being "hustled into a waiting vehicle."
That's right only four of the thirty-something blocks of the parade route: --
Makes one wonder whether Hillary is too low energy to withstand the rigors of the presidency.
Clinton skipped the parade last year, sending her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, as a surrogate. The last time Hillary marched in the city’s Pride Parade was a decade ago, during her 2006 Senate reelection campaign.
