It's Be Kind To George W. Bush Week! If that isn't a depressing way to start off, I don't know what is, except for New Heart for Cheney Day.
Mark Davis, Town Hall: "If George W. Bush Were President Today"
"So with no archive of articles featuring George W. riffing on events of the last four years, we are left with his record and the handful of quote nuggets he has offered up in interviews this week."
We are left with his record. Right you are, Mark. His record as the worst President ever. I don't think that's the tale you are going to be spinning here...
"...if he were to spend more than I would like, at least it would be fueled by the engine of an economy energized by lower taxes"
Yeah, just like the lower taxes he presided over, which "energized" our economy so much that it drove right off a cliff.
"If the fiscal issues would be a mixed bag, at least the social agenda would be returned to some level of human decency."
"In short, a new Bush presidency would probably satisfy conservatives in some ways and annoy them in others, much as his eight actual years did."
And what about the Bush Presidency satisfied Conservatives? Man, I'd like to hear that one explained. Except the torture, of course- they all loved that.
Keith Hennessy- former Bush Advisor: "President Bush is extremely smart by any traditional standard. He’s highly analytical and was incredibly quick to be able to discern the core question he needed to answer. It was occasionally a little embarrassing when he would jump ahead of one of his Cabinet secretaries in a policy discussion and the advisor would struggle to catch up. He would sometimes force us to accelerate through policy presentations because he so quickly grasped what we were presenting. I use words like briefing and presentation to describe our policy meetings with him, but those are inaccurate. Every meeting was a dialogue, and you had to be ready at all times to be grilled by him and to defend both your analysis and your recommendation. That was scary."
Man, how stupid do they think we are?
Myra Adams, PJ Media: "What Was Bush Thinking While Obama Spoke at His Library Opening?"
Well, judging from his behavior in office, nothing.
John Ransom, Town Hall: " Let’s just call it what it is: The country has a big, nasty case of V.D.-That’s Virus Democratus...This is what happens when you put hippies in charge."
What, you mean no economic disasters and no wars of aggression? Man, those hippies never want to have any fun.
"Quick: What percentage of people in the Obama administration do you think go to church each week? What percentage of people in the Obama administration smoke weed each week? Now subtract the one number from the other. Any questions?"
John, of course, doesn't have a clue what those numbers might be, but still...
"After a decade of letting Obama work on scholarship because of white guilt, demographics and a weak bench of unelectable doofuses- John Edwards, Howard Dean, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton anyone?- now that political results matter to the Democratus Party, some are getting a little shy about the president."
"Some" are getting a little shy about the President. No names of course, just "some." And my God, after what we saw in the last year, how does any Republican have the nerve to accuse someone else about a weak bench of unelectable doofuses? And just wait until 2016, when you can see just how "unelectable" Hillary is. She'll be unelectable, of course, in your polls- right up until she wipes the floor with Marco Rubio or another Bush or whatever idiot you find to run against her, no matter how much your rich corporate vultures spend.
Doug Giles, Town Hall: "Jihad On Our Tax Dollars? Screw That. That’s a question folks. What do you propose we do to make certain they don’t get one red cent to spill one ounce of our red blood?"
How about never electing another person like Ronald Reagan, who essentially gave birth to the Taliban and Al Qaida, by arming Afghan Mujahedeen to fight against the Russians?
Daniel Doherty, Town Hall: "Surprise: Stoners at Weed Convention Are Utterly Clueless"
And what is your excuse for Republicans at their convention? At least stoners' cluelessness isn't wrecking the country.
Dennis Prager, Town Hall: "Why Is There a Hookup Culture? It is well known that most college students engage at one time or another in what is known as a "hookup" -- an emotionless, commitment-less sexual encounter."
Why do people have commitment-less sexual encounters? Well, listen, Dennis...no, if you don't understand it by now you never will.
Sher Zieve, Renew America: "Obama and other traitors bring an end to sanity and my country"
Well, Sher, I hadn't noticed that our country has ended, but when I read you, I see what you mean about an end to sanity. Here (no, I can't control myself) is an example of what I mean from Sher:
"the federal government is now working to rid itself of the States...altogether"
Maybe they should think about that. Without the States, the Federal Government won't have much left- pretty much just the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Not exactly what you need to keep telling yourself that you are a superpower.
"Taking on the tone of the surreal, recent "massacres" – many aspects of which strongly appear to have been staged by the ObamaGov and Marxist Hollywood for maximum effect toward assisting them in establishing a US police state – from Aurora, CO through Sandy Hook to the latest Boston Marathon bombings are continuing to develop into what appear to be "staged events" status."
Well, there it is. It's all a pack of Muslim Commie plots. There's the right wing take on the government. Hard to figure out how you deal with people who claim to believe that, huh? Short of electroshock therapy.
Laurie Roth, Renew America: "Who is the real Obama running our country? I and millions believe that his own behavior reveals the tale. He is Muslim, not eligible to be president, because he wasn't born in the U.S; he is gay or bi-sexual; he is a Communist and an internationalist, where the ends always justify the means. Obama is just another boring dictator and tyrant stealing from the playbooks of all the others."
Yeah, yeah, blah blah blah. If you and millions really believe that, Laurie, you are among the biggest fools in the history of the world. But we know that you do not believe that. What you believe is that you are never going to admit that a black man was elected to be your President, and you will claim to believe he is a Martian before you will accept reality.
John Rocker, World Net Daily: "I'd rather profile than cower in fear"
Well, the rest of us are not cowering in fear, John, just you and your wingnut buddies. So we'd just as soon keep our freedoms. We're not giving them up because you are too cheap to see a shrink.
Michael Bresciani: "Obama berates birthers -- when did asking honest questions become a joke?"
Honest questions. Right. Here is a list of the "honest questions" that this jackass wants to ask Obama, with answers from Green Eagle, to save Obama the trouble:
"Why, are your school records, sealed from public view? Are you ashamed of them?"
Obama has been elected President twice by the American people, who have had years to see who he is. What the hell would revealing his school records accomplish, except to give right wing asses a chance to crow that they beat him down, before claiming that they are all forgeries, and moving on to some other irrelevant, invasive demand?
"Why hasn't someone in the United States been held responsible for the death of a dedicated Border Officer due to the botched gun running brainstorm called operation 'Fast and Furious?'
Maybe we should hold Bush and Cheney responsible, since this type of program was started under their administration.
"Who exactly is responsible for the deaths of one U.S. ambassador and several of our finest fighting men in the hideously handled harangue called 'the Benghazi attack?'"
Who exactly is responsible for the deaths of 4,600 American troops in the hideously handled criminal aggression called "the Iraq war?" And why, exactly, aren't people like you interested in that?
"Why are you tying the hands of ICE agents who should be actively tying the hands of those who illegally cross the borders of this country?"
God damned right! Why are you making ICE agents follow the law, and treat people according to the Bill of Rights? We've got wetbacks to keep out!
"Why are you allowed to hurdle piles of bucks at failed green dreams like Solyndra and then close the White House to visitors for lack of funds."
Why are Republicans allowed to "hurdle" (I think he meant hurtle) vastly greater piles of bucks at the richest industry in the history of the world, while closing cancer clinics for lack of funds?
"Why were sequester fears laid on the public in a systematic and concerted effort while Michelle vacations around the nation, and the world, on the taxpayer's dime."
What exactly did you have to say when George W. Bush took vastly more vacation time than any President in our history? Of course, from Green Eagle's viewpoint, every day he was goofing off down in Texas was one day he didn't have a chance to damage the country, so maybe it was a good thing.
"Why are you so sensitive when Americans doubt that you are a Christian? Hasn't anyone told you that abortion and homosexuality are both diametrically opposed to Christ, his Apostles and every prophet and the Biblical message contained in both the Old and New Testament?"
Hasn't anyone told Michael that Christ never had one recorded word to say about abortion and homosexuality? And what about the "Biblical message" where Christ did talk about helping the poor, the sick, foreigners among us, prisoners, etc? Funny how right wingers routinely ignore what he really said, but are able to intuit through mental telepathy or something, or because they're just so much holier than the rest of us, how he felt about things he never bothered to talk about. I mean, it couldn't be that Michael is projecting his own hate-filled, racist intolerant views on a guy who has been gone for two thousand years and can't answer back. No, that couldn't possibly be true.
Well, God in heaven above, that's enough for today. This gets harder and harder to take as they get more and more idiotic.
