"Look, there’s a guy in office right now who is smarter than almost anyone you know, who’s nicer and who has more compassion than almost anyone you know. And he’s having an almost impossible time governing." The Washington Times[snip]
Mr. Clooney, just as it's impossible to teach physics if you lack the intelligence, knowledge and experience to do so, it reasons it would be impossible to govern a country being inept and with no knowledge of, or experience in leadership. Can't blame that on Bush, now can we.
As for being smarter than almost anyone you know, coming from Hollywood that statement is certainly not much of a stretch!
