Got these last fall from my friend Kristy. I kept meaning to post them, but you know how time is, and all that. So without further ado, here are some funnies about … Obama!
If George Bush was an idiot. . . .
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 inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
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 in 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 5th 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 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 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 created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.
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 5 months — so you’ll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
I saw this in my Reader, and immediately a Bob Parks post from Black & Right sprang to mind.
My thought was, “Yeah, never stoop to calling your opponents ‘Nazis’ … you mean like THIS?”
I’m afraid the right wing Republicans are miles behind when it comes to almost eight years worth of presidential-Hitler analogy, and Lisa Derrick knows this as well (I will take it for granted that she has some intelligence). But seeing how Barack Obama has perpetuated most of George W. Bush’s terror and war policies, and has imposed an authoritarian nature to our government that makes his predecessor look like a bush leaguer, I’d be very careful about whining about those Obama-Hitler comparisons.
They may be vile, but they may be closer than Ms. Derrick would want to admit.
I’ve been going through my Reader, catching up on all my blogs, and I caught this fascinating article over on American Thinker. Exactly Wrong, Again
“We are not in recession. The economy of the last eight years has been fine. And we are doing better than our European know-it-alls who favor an Obama victory. At least that’s what the most recent economic data show.”
Statistically, we’ve been better under Bush than we were under Clinton, although Liberals would have you believe otherwise. Taxes were much higher under Clinton, so don’t get so excited when Obama tells you he’s going to “put things back” to Clinton levels. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Check out the article linked above and you’ll see what I mean. It’s been better in America under Bush than it was under Clinton, and it’s better in America than it is in Europe. So if Bush is supposed to be some kind of economic problem, why are things worse in Europe than they are here?
