While I thought Bush had some shortcomings myself, I never thought him to be the abomination others built him up to be. So, in response to those who criticized him then, still blame him for our country’s problems now, and have propped Obama up as the second coming of Christ, here are some questions for you, courtesy of Teresa P., Heritage Foundation LinkedIn Group:
If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as “proof” of what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on “Earth Day”, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually “get” what happened on 9-11?
If George W . Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plans holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC would you have approved?
What sucks is that liberals say “There are people who will go to their grave swearing Obama is not a legitimate president and I don’t think there is burden of proof that can be met in their minds because they are predisposed to disliking and mistrusting this man unto death.” Yet they are the very same people who whined for 8 years that Bush “stole” the election.
What sucks is losing your rights.
What sucks is a 9+% employment rate.
What sucks is having a community leader as a president
What sucks is having a president apologize to ALL of our enemies for being America
What sucks is Obama firing the CEO of GM and putting the government in charge
What sucks is the president appointing 30+ Czars to date, that are not held accountable and do not answer to anyone
What sucks is the budget deficit quadrupling
What sucks is the government managing our Health Care system when they can’t handle Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran’s Hospitals, the Post Office and Social Security
What sucks is that everyones energy bill going up at least $800 per year due to cap and trade
What sucks is that the U.S. Treasury is being run by a tax cheat
What sucks is the Congressional Budget Office predicting that the bill from the Senate Finance Committee would increase the federal budget deficit by $1.6 trillion over the next 10 years
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 5 months — so you’ll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
