Subject: when it’s W you laughed… Bush was a clown right?

You used to say that George W. was an idiot, right?

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

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

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

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 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

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10
years, would you have approved?

If W. had allowed a health bill with mandatory body chipping for humans,
(when it causes cancer in dogs,) would you have been OK with that?

If W had signed a healthbill with forced 7k a yr healthcare signups with
the HMOS
who wrote that bill, you’d have stormed the palace!

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 8
months — so you’ll have three years and four months to come up with an

How’s that “hope and change” working out for you?
