  • Trash Bush, Blame Bush, BE Bush! Obama rebooting....

    After running against all that Bush represented to become president, Obama spent the next several years blaming Bush for all his own failures.

    NOW it seems Obama is trying to BE Bush to save his JimmyCarter-like presidency.

    Barack Obama’s first speech to the UN was filled with the giddy hopes that won him the presidency in the first place. “More than at any point in human history, the interests of nations and peoples are shared,” he told world leaders in 2009.

    Five years later, it was a greyer and more sombre Mr Obama who warned the UN this week about the “generational task” of defeating Islamist militants in the Middle East, two days after he launched his first air strikes in Syria. “The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force,” he said.

    Replete with George W Bush-style rhetoric about a “network of death” and “this brand of evil”, Mr Obama’s speech this week was an effort to reboot his flagging presidency.

    Hey, Jimmy Carter was a poor president but he did not do his best to weaken the nation and promote racial strife and class strife.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        Jimmy Carter would be a welcome alternative, for sure. Even some of my more liberal friends are saying, "Gee, I miss Bush".

          "Oh! Cut him some slack! He's black!"

          If I had a quarter for every time I saw people try to play that card, I wouldn't need a job!

            Obama swore from the beginning to go after and to kill, and proceeded to go after and to kill, terrorist. He got Bin Laden, not to mention many other terrorist leaders. Did you conveniently forget about that CP.

            As above, his words and actions haven't changed CP. Problem is, he has now the burden of trying to clean up the foriegn policy mess that your guy caused as well. Not to mention the economic mess!

              Yeah! As if being black meant he was not able to do the job a white man could do. Baloney no matter how thin you slice it.

                Now that is original, it is all the fault of President Bush. Never heard that baloney before.

                    He would not even BE president if he was NOT black.

                        And that, without a doubt, was a good thing. Too bad he then acted like the problem was now over and we could forget about it.

                        The problem is that his words and actions for the most part have only made things worse. At what point are you guys ever going to concede the at some point Obama is also responsible for what is going on?

                          Well, Obama personally and singlehandedly flew to Pakistan and killed Bin Laden - when are you going to give him credit for THAT? He located Bin Laden, piloted the plane, BOTH copters, mapped out all the navigation, did the dynamic entry, killed Bil Laden, then carried his body back to the copter and escaped unharmed!

                            The Obama Time Line...


                            1. Promise Change (because it is all Bush's Fault!)
                            2. Promise to bring our troops home. (because it is all Bush's Fault!)
                            3. Keep doing the same thing as he blamed Bush for (no change), for 6 years. (because it is all Bush's Fault!)
                            4. Start to bring troops home. (because it is all Bush's Fault!)
                            5. Oops, sends them somewhere else instead. (because it is all Bush's Fault!)

                              I like the part where Obama dove out of the helicopter sans a parachute with only a knife clenched between his teeth while those wimpy SEAL Team Six guys were still preparing to rappel down their effete little ropes and how Obama manually shoved the bullets into bin Laden's body since he doesn't need some sissy gun.
