If George W. 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 he 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 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 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 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 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.

The above is making the email rounds, but it ties in wonderfully with Lorne Gunter's article from yesterday:

Obama's never found guilty by association

Suppose it was revealed that the pastor who had married George and Laura Bush, baptized their two daughters and ministered to their spiritual needs for 20 years was a raving white supremacist who, from the pulpit, preached the separation of the races, claimed that the promiscuity of African-Americans had quickened the spread of AIDS and mused about how America might be improved if black people were sent back to Africa.

Read the whole thing!

Hunter you savage you ... all your trolls will be madly typing their cryptic comments and trying to get past the moderation door. Their hearts will be pounding, their palms sweating, their eyes bulging with anger (not to mention their mouths spewing forth!!)

Thanks for the Saturday Funnies - you win!!

The Cinco de Mayo crack never would have happened under George W. Bush, seeing how he spoke Spanish.

In fact, remember when Obama was saying during the campaign that to be more loved in Europe, Americans should all learn a second language such as French? Well Obama doesn't speak French...or any non-English language. Bush, on the other hand, found his bilingualism didn't impress people across the pond.

(On a similar note the infamous Hilary's "reset button" gaffe never would have happened under Bush, since his Secretary of State Condi Rice speaks fluent Russian and would have spotted the translation error in a millisecond).

Hunter, you should let the trolls slip through for one hour which you pick at random. Frustrate the little twits. Obviously, SQ still reads your blog because he did slip through during the recent troll day. Your pet trolls must be twisted up in knots right now. LOLOLOL, or as they would say: hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Reminds me of the door fiasco. GWB was mocked because, during a state visit, he tried to open a door that turned out to be locked. BHO, shortly after entering the white house, was photographed trying to open a patio windo. Dang thing didn't even look like a door. Where were the mocking voices?

(by the way, I don't think either should be mocked for making a mistake. Who hasn't done something like that at some point?)

And on the thread of double standards, I found this the other day...

Funny how short some people's memories can get.
