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 nonexistent "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 with their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in the United States , would you have said that he is clueless?

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas , would you have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk?

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 misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes 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 15 months -- so you'll have two years and nine months to come up with an answer.

Observer: If George W. had!.........

Not just about destroyed us and may yet, we would be happier with him!
As to George Bowing to King of Saudi Arabia, well he held his hand like a little girl! The Bushes are tight with that group of Muslims!

As to the debt, George W. did double the deficit--we will have to wait and see what Obama does.

President Obama can not fire any corporate officer and didn't do so. He could have stayed if Treasury had simply not saved their butt. He is living OK.
I haven't heard about any Czars doing anything out of order, have you? They are advisors.

And most embarrassing of all for you: George W, did fly Air Force One over New Orleans for all to see!

Democrats plan political triage to retain House

Democrats plan political triage to retain House

In the next two weeks, Democratic leaders will review new polls and other data that show whether vulnerable incumbents have a path to victory. If not, the party is poised to redirect money to concentrate on trying to protect up to two dozen lawmakers who appear to be in the strongest position to fend off their challengers.

How pathetic. Liberals, losing the battle of ideas, decide the only way to win is to throw money at their campaing.

Why is it libs always think that spending more of other people's money is the solution to everything?

Only if George would have been a Democrat

If George would have been a Democrat you would be touting his praises and showering him accolades. But....

We will have to wait won't we Bonky? I mean it really looks like he has that debt, spending, and deficit thing very well managed with that Democrat monopoly on fiscal policy issues. I mean...we have managed the deficit issue, all those new jobs you brag about, he successfully ended the Iraq war. He has those Israel and palestine eating out of his hand and the terrorist Iranian leader is groveling at his feet. Yep... we'll keep this wait game up since all seems to be well under your god's watch.

Observer...further facts

And, I think the King of Saudia Arabia slept in George's Texas house that night! The old boy who used to be Ambassador to USA when "Daddy" was President made the Bush's tons of money!
