Political Circus: Bush a better dancer than Obama?

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail to the international stage, there's always something that gets a laugh or a second glance.

'So you think you can dance?'

Former President George W. Bush appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" for the first time in 10 years Thursday night. Leno, who joked that Bush provided him with a decade's worth of material, asked the former president who is the better dancer - him or President Obama.

And the winner is ...

    If Bush is a better dancer than Obama it's because Obama spends all his spare time working on basketball moves while working out with NBA stars and working on his golf game.Come to think that not spare time it's all the time. That's why the economy is in a mess.

    You have got to be kidding me.

    Bush is not a better anything than Obama. Well okay there is one thing; I was happier on Bush's last day than I will ever be on Obama's last day.

    Boy do I miss George Bush. That was a president with character and respected the office of president. Even today he does not criticize the Obama administration (and that must be tough keeping his opinions quiet about Obama after how he has knocked this country back 40 years and for the FIRST time in American history our kids will have a lower standard of living than we had). Many dislike George Bush (and you are welcome to your opinion) but we had incredible economic growth (up until the Democrats took control of the House in 2006 and THEY were the original "Party of No" for the next two years) AND our country was protected. Do you realize we did not have another terrorist attack on U.S. soil from 9/11 until the day Bush left office? Now less than two years into the Obama administration we have had five terrorist attacks or attempts? Obama is such a disgrace. Goodness I MISS GEORGE BUSH!!!

    The only things Obama can top Bush on is lying and corruption. He is the lyingest and most corrupt of all time.

    The only dancing Obama is good at is when he asked a tough question ay the media.

    The difference is that Obama was courteous and sensitive enough with his dancing, not trying to outshine the children even though he could have. Bush was condescending and patronizing, not to mention trying to take centerstage with his ridiculous dancing.
