It’s ALL Bush’s Fault. No really.

H/T to a friend on facebook who posted this there – this article is fantastic.  It’s written by Chuck Green, a lifelong democrat and published by the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel, a quite liberal rag.  Amazing – I think some of the leftys are waking up!

Obama is a victim of Bush’s failed promises

Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first year in office.

Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever.

Wow. Talk about change.

Just one year ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation’s most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America’s first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

Of course, they don’t see it as self imposed. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in Congress and who no longer occupies the White House, is to blame for it all.

He broke Obama’s promise to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

He broke Obama’s promise to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

He broke Obama’s promise to end earmarks.

He broke Obama’s promise to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

He broke Obama’s promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

He broke Obama’s promise to make peace with direct, no pre-condition talks with America’s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

He broke Obama’s promise to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

He broke Obama’s promise to end no-compete contracts with the government.

He broke Obama’s promise to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

He broke Obama’s promise for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

He broke Obama’s promise to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter of last year.

Yes, it’s all George Bush’s fault. President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending, failed Bush administration.

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, all of President Obama’s problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel, North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

Oh, and did I mention what it would be like if the Democrats, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn’t have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks. There would be no earmarks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying (Nebraska, Louisiana).

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, we’d have real change by now.

All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama’s fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president’s attorney general, to hold terrorists’ trials in New York City. Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

Two disastrous decisions.

Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush.

Need more proof?

You might recall that when Scott Brown won last month’s election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, capturing “the Ted Kennedy seat,” President Obama said that Brown’s victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years, and they wanted change.

Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts last month was George Bush’s fault.

Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats.

It is all George Bush’s fault.

Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and change ever arrive?

Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something — anything?

“W” got a Facebook page and a Twitter account today.  As tweeter @AndyLevy said, now we know who to blame when they go down.  HA!  You can follow him on Twitter @George_WBush and like his facebook page here.

EDIT:  according to @KarlRove via @seanhannity on Twitter, @George_WBush is NOT the real deal, although the Facebook page is for real, so I removed the link to the page.

Memorial Day musings

I had the pleasure *cough* of watching the President’s helicopter fly by the track where my hubby was riding his motorcycle. Some pretty heavy storms blew through and I heard later that those same storms had postponed the TOTUS’ Memorial Day speech at Lincoln National Cemetery.

From USA Today:

A massive thunder-and-lightning storm opened up just as Obama was set to deliver a traditional Memorial Day speech at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery near Chicago.

“A little bit of rain doesn’t hurt anybody, but we don’t want anybody struck by lightning,” said Obama — umbrella in hand — in urging crowd members to retreat to their cars.

The president had to scrap his speech, opting instead to visit with military families — but not before another setback during a motorcade ride, as described by pool reporter Anne Kornblut of The Washington Post:

At about 1:30 PM, the presidential motorcade screeched to a halt on I-55. One of the SUVs had blown a tire. The occupants got out and into another car, we’re told.

Yes, it’s that kind of day.

Later, Obama’s motorcade headed to the airport for the flight back to Washington.

As Air Force One revved up, Anne reported to her fellow correspondents that, “of course, now that he is about to leave, the rain has stopped and the sun is finally shining through.”

Apparently God wasn’t too pleased that TOTUS decided to abandon Arlington either. When I heard the audio clip of him telling the crowd that they were asking people to take shelter because they were “concerned about the lightning” I told hubby that if I was him I’d have been concerned about it, too! >:-(

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right…

First we have Michelle Obama referring to Kenya as The One’s “home country…”

Then there’s Phil Hare who doesn’t care…about the Constitution (which by the way he is sworn to uphold!) — and then attempts to quote it which is a miserable fail because, as someone in the crowd points out, he is quoting the Declaration of Independence….

And then Rep. Hank Johnson is worried about sending more U.S. troops to Guam, because, well, we might throw things so out of whack that the whole dang island will capsize and flip over…

These are a little late for April Fool’s Day, but they certainly qualify as April Fools….  And these people are gonna fix our messed up health care system.  God help us!

Wonder how many of the MSM will be reporting these things?
