Putting things into perspective: What If George W. Bush had …

  • What 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 Fifth of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
  • If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potato 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 is 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?
  • 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 10 weeks — so you’ll have three years and nine-and-a-half months to come up with an answer.

    1. warrantonegirl, thank you for the extra time to come up with an answer. I think GW was kinda cute, but I admit I was not kind. haha

    2. If President George W. Bush had done all of those things, would Obama and his media whores be any worse on him now than they already have been?

      But, the point is spot-on. But of course, President Bush would NEVER do those things. He was a gentleman and was raised in the home of a diplomat. We must never forget that. He knew the appropriate thing to do and when to do it. We cannot say THAT for Obama. He has made so many “snafus” where would we start?

      Let’s begin with inauguration day. What ABOUT that gold coat thang that his wife wore? Simply GAUDY. In contrast, First-Lady Barbara Bush looked simply stunning in her gray dress and pearls. She was raised “right” and obviously read the book on how a “southern girl” dresses. I wonder what sorority what’s her name was in?

      But I digress….then there they are across the pond, and WHO puts their hand on the Queen? I mean, THE QUEEN! What’s her name does. And Obama, he gives her a “sniff” and the brush-off. This is our most dedicated “friend”; Great Britain. Then he proceeds to go to Saudi Arabia and BOWS to the King. No President of the United States BOWS to anyone. But the press just overlooked it and then attacks President George Bush for holding hands with the King on one of HIS trips. Well, it is a custom in that country to hold hands. President Bush well knows this because his father was again, a diplomat to Saudi Arabia for many years and President Bush spent a great deal of time there. It was paying great respect to their culture for him to do this. BOWING TO THE KING was not. We didn’t see anyone else BOWING TO THE KING. It made Obama look like a court monkey.

      Then there’s what’s her name with a hoe (not to be confused with a “ho”) making a garden in the back of the White House. (What respectable first lady does this? Really, oh, yes Eleanor Roosevelt did this; but we must remember that she also had a live-in lover in the White House and it was no man but then I think what’s her name is a he, but I digress). There she is in her cheap-looking sneakers with rhinestone things on them (they look like they were made in Hobby Lobby), telling us we must conserve and eat naturally while she wears trash that looks like it fell off of the Supremes clothes 25 years ago.

      Well, I’ve sufficiently denegrated what’s her name and what’s his name enough for today. I think. If I remember anything else, I’ll come back.

      They are trash and they are not suitable to live in the White House. I’ll be they’ve painted the walls PURPLE or something. They are tacky people. Tacky people with NO TASTE. What a waste.

      • whatsinaname, girl girl girl, I hear Ya! hahahhaah I do not have time to respond to this entire message from you, but Not to Worry, I will; piece by piece. I just have to say, I love your digressing, rofl! I agree honey. you can take the people out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the people. Yes, she is a he and he is a she…they were made for each other. I will be back to comment some more and thanks!
