An Honest Look at a Dishonest Presidency

by D. E. Carson (writer), , July 19, 2009

George W. Bush would never have gotten away with half of what his successor has.

What would you say if you turned on the news right now and heard that during his time as President of the United States, George W. Bush had:

·         Made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics.

·         Ordered the installation of a teleprompter in the White House press briefing room for news conferences.

·         Given the prime minister of England a set of DVDs he could not play anywhere outside the United States after the prime minister gave the President a thoughtful and historically significant gift.

·         Given Queen Elizabeth II of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches.

·         Bowed before the monarch of a foreign state.

·         Visited the nation of Austria and inappropriately referred to its native language as “Austrian” even though Austrians speak German.

·         Nominated people to his cabinet with tax problems.

·         Flubbed “Cuatro de Mayo” before the Mexican Ambassador on the fourth of May calling it “Cinco de Cuatro” not once but multiple times.

·         Burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to plant a single tree on “Earth Day”.

·         Someone on his staff authorize a fly-over of lower Manhattan by a large aircraft for a mere photo opportunity.

·         Completely ignored more flood victims in the Midwest than were affected by Katrina.

·         Proposed to double the national debt, which took almost 200 years to accumulate, in one single year then proposed to double it again over 10 years.

·         Virtually wiped out your retirement plan with General Motors and fired the company’s CEO without any Constitutional authority to do so.

·         Taken his wife to New York City to a Broadway musical using taxpayer-funded transportation just so they could have a “date night”.

You’d be angry as all hell and would demand some kind of investigation.  But the truth is, George W. Bush didn’t do any of these things.  These offenses were committed by the man who currently holds the title of President, Barack Hussein Obama.

So why in the hell aren’t you equally as outraged?  In fact, you should be more outraged at Obama’s apparent lack of work ethic at all.  During the first three months he was president, he spent more time on that “spiffy” Air Force One than he did at the White House.

This economy is no longer Bush’s, it is now wholly Obama’s.  He promised the world and has delivered nothing but apologies to foreign countries and a whole lot of smoke and mirrors.  If you’ve read this far and are not completely outraged at his incompetence as president you obviously don’t care.  This isn’t to say Obama isn’t smart.  He’s a very intelligent person.  To convince 69,456,897 people to vote for him even though he never directly answered a single question or never said anything about how he intended to pay for the nanny government he intended to implement takes a lot of brains, a lot of talent, a lot of charisma, some shifty salesmanship, a super-tanker of chutzpah and enough male bovine fecal material to fertilize the entire Sinai peninsula for the next 5,000 years.  Obama is the slickest snake-oil salesman ever to set foot in the White House and now he’s trying to sell this country the worst health-care plan ever seen in the world.  China, France, Canada and England are all begging America to stay away from socialized medicine.  China knows that if America goes down that road all the money they’ve loaned to us will be not only lost but will cause their own economy to collapse.  France, England and Canada already have the kind of system Obama wants to implement and they’re trying to get rid of it.

But Obama isn’t listening.  He’s hell-bent for leather to see America driven full-speed ahead into the ground like a meteor.  And Democrats in Congress are beginning to see him for the snake-oil salesman that he is.  When will the other 69 million fools who voted for him wake up and realize the emperor ain’t wearin’ no clothes?

Wow.  You're really talented.  It's amazing to find someone who can read a computer screen while at the same time giving felatio to Obama.

DUDE!!! Oh my God!!!  I forgot how great your lightning-rod articles were!!!  I miss this bloodsport, and I am so glad that someone is keeping score because you KNOW the slobbering lovestruck cheerleading lefty media is already preparing the legacy/look-back videos on this fool.

Good to see you've given up zero ground to the Kool-Aid drinkers who are still so caught up in the great big Group Hug of November 2008 that they wouldn't believe any of the screwups listed above even if you showed them the evidence.

I absolutely love that your comments on your own article have been shouted down and negated!!!  I see nothing has changed here.  Keep spittin' into the wind, and keep keeping score. In 3 (and hopefully not 7) years, when people want to know what hit them, you can whip out the tally.

later, CC

For the party that created our crises of misbegotten war, mismanaged economy, the lack of regulation of our banking industry, handing our country to rich crooks... to obstruct the one person who is trying to repair the damage is obscene.

Just imagine where America would be today if the 14 to 20 million voters -- "the rube base" who slavishly follow the likes of Limbaugh -- had not voted as a block year after year thus empowering the Republican fiasco. We would have a regulated banking industry and would have avoided our current financial crisis; some 4000 of our killed military men and women would be alive; over to 35,000 wounded Americans would be whole; we would have been leaders in the environmental movement; we would be in the middle of a green technology boom fueling a huge expansion of our economy and stopping our dependence on foreign oil, and our health-care system would be reformed.

After Obama was elected, Republican leaders had a unique last chance to send a patriotic message of unity to the world -- and to all Americans. Republicans could have backed our president's economic recovery plan. Since we all know that half of our problem is one of lost confidence and perception, nothing would have done more to calm the markets and project resolve and confidence than if Republicans had been big enough to take Obama's offered hand and had work with him -- even if Republicans disagreed ideologically. Republicans had the chance to put our country first. Republicans utterly failed to rise to the occasion.

The worsening economic situation is the Republican's fault and their fault alone. The Republicans created this mess through 8 years of backing the worst president in our history and Republicans, because they put partisan ideology ahead of the good of our country, Republicans have blown their last chance to redeem themselves. Republicans deserve the banishment to the political wilderness that awaits all traitors.

Where Is A Barry Goldwater When We Need One?

I just love how blind with hatered for Bush you liberals are.  You have no problem bringing up ever gaffe committed by Bush but when someone starts tallying the gaffes of your precious Messiah and Savior, His Royal Higness, B. Hussein Obama ('cuz he sure as hell ain't MY Messiah) you get all pissed off and start whining about what Bush did and trying to deflect the reality that Obama is the idiot everyone tried to make Bush out to be.  Anyone care to explain the video of Obama's visit to Russia where no one would shake hands with him?  You're so fond of pulling up egg-on-face video of Bush, how about figuring out why no one wanted to shake hands with Obama?  Oh, wait, you don't care about that part, now do you?  So long as you can make Bush look stupid and Obama look almighty that's your M.O.

When are you going to wake up and realize that Obama is no better than Bush (and in some cases worse)?  Or are you so stupid that you can't admit that Obama is a screw up -- or as the letters in his name say: One Big-Assed Mistake, America.  You selfish, socialist liberals can't handle the truth that Obama made some HUGE faux pas in his first 7 months in office -- many of them bigger than Bush ever thought of -- and yet you are still willing to get on your knees before him.  I've never said Bush was perfect, but he was a damn sight better than that screw up we have up there now.  At least he didn't double and triple the budget deficit in less than 1/10th the time of his 43 predecessors combined.

Republicans aren't backing Obama because they can see that he isn't worth a pitcher of spit.  They won't back him for that same reason -- he's trying to turn America socialist, period.  BTW Speedbump: If Obama and the Democrats are so good, where are the jobs they promised if that stimulus bill got rammed through Congress?  Where is the 8% unemployment that is now pushing 10% nationally and exceeded 10% in many states?  Why are so many blue-dog Democrats pushing back against your socialized healthcare plan?  Why are Obama's popularity numbers dropping?  This is Obama's recession now.  His moronic plan to fix it didn't work.  In fact, things are worse now than they were under Bush -- Bush NEVER had to stare 10% unemployment in the face.  You can't blame the Republicans for this one now.  The Democtats have been in charge of Capitol Hill for too long to be able to lay this one on Bush's feet anymore.

Start smelling what you're shovelling.  I'd take Bush back as president in a hot minute if it meant reversing all the stupid things Obama has done -- hell I'd take Roosevelt back over Obama if it meant just getting back to only the damage FDR did to this country.
