Absurdity from CNN

Maybe the measure of a President shouldn't be the number of books read in office, but, instead, the number of briefing books read in office?
If Obama is close to finishing the novel, that puts him on less than a 10 book-a-year pace, far less than the close to 100 books President Bush was reportedly able to finish in the same amount of time.

It's my hunch that Obama maybe works a little harder in the job, not finding 3-4 hours a day for pleasure reading.


  • I think it's an open secret Bush's book-reading statistics are a work of fiction in themselves. It's all silliness.

  • Certainly, but CNN treating them as literal and then demeaning the current (obviously smarter) president with those statistics should not go without mention.

  • I get it... I weep for America when this is how we are "informed."

  • If Bush was reading as much as he claimed, it would explain how he let the mess he left us in get so out of control.
