It was said, too often, that the thing about George W. Bush was that he's the kind of guy you'd like to have a beer with. I admit I never felt that way. Neil Degrasse Tyson, yeah, for sure.
But, if it's a test of electability -- as the question was always framed -- let's engage in that test. Now, conservatives and liberals alike, look at these clips with an open mind and decide, if the premise were true -- that you'd vote for the guy you'd rather have a beer with -- which one would you choose? I for one think the answer is clear.

Now, Barack Obama:
Yeah, that's what I thought.
Update. I can be dense. Romney's Mormon. He doesn't drink. Of course, neither did George W., after years of abuse. So, point's the same. Who would you rather have a beer with, Obama, or a Republican who doesn't drink? Okay, fine, then, power smoothie. (Make mine a beer.)
