We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura.
If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of Dubya nearly every day parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.
Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000 and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.
We were convinced that ANYONE who was president would have done what Bush did, and would have set that right tone of leadership in the wake of that disaster. President Gore, President Perot, President Nader, you name it. ANYONE, we assumed, would have filled that role perfectly.
Well, we told you before how much the current president, Dr. Utopia, made us realize just how wrong we were about Bush. We shudder to think what Dr. Utopia would have done post-9/11. He would have not gone there with a bullhorn and struck that right tone. More likely than not, he would have been his usual fey, apologetic self and waxed professorially about how evil America is and how justified Muslims are for attacking us, with a sidebar on how good the attacks were because they would humble us.
NOTE: Read the comment section of this blog. Very enlightening. People are starting to see what Obama is all about

How sad it took over a year for some folks.
I recognized that fraud named Obama back in February 2008.
It’s tough, real tough admitting being wrong. It’s uncommon. Of course this president does make it easier.
It’s easy to draw the contrast between Bush and Obamao when it comes to the Commander and Chief. Obamao isn’t in Bush’s league. What we don’t hear, and won’t hear from the Obamao’s fawning media is that Obamao is an economic disaster compared to Bush. Obamao’s foreign policies are sucking big time too. Before Obamao is another year into his catastrophic screwup, people will long for the good ol’ years of Bush.
My spider sense tingled at the mere first mention of his name, and a large robot was waving his arms around, screaming “Danger! Danger! Young Will Robinson! Do not elect. Repeat. Do not elect.” Now Dr. Smith finally gets it. What a newsflash.
The column is reminiscent of kids hating their parents for being their parents instead of being their ‘friend’ and popular. Then when the kid matures, they realize how great their parents really were, and are grateful that they were that way.
It’s not all just about Obama. There’s praise of the Bushes in this article. To wit:
“You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.
Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, youll answer to us.
We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all theyve done, and continue to do. They didnt have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.”
I don’t know if I should be thrilled or chilled. The Bushes are now the same to them as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro? Jeesh.
“The Obamas should have done that.
No photo ops, I guess. They wouldn’t let him pose next to a flag-draped coffin.
dr. utopia says it all...
” dont know if I should be thrilled or chilled. The Bushes are now the same to them as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro? Jeesh.”
That’s about the highest compliment they can pay. That site is a Clinton admiration society.
I'd never think I'd see the day.
If Gays are supposed to be lauded as on the cutting edge of trends (popular culture wisdom, not me speaking) then what does this portend for the rest of the Bush Hating Democrats?
Will we see even more buyers remorse in the coming months ( and year or to) and coming to the realization they really got snookered by believing in his most exalted his name will not be mentioned by my lips, the Poseur from Chicago?
It always infuriated me to see the mistreatment the press and Democrats heaped upon President Bush and his wife. But I have no doubt that as the scales fall away from the eyes of those who refused to see the goodness in this man, history will be kind to him. Bush an ex alcoholic, born again Christian,
The press IMHO hated the Christian part and the goodness it added to his heart, the still don't get it, they never will and it eats at them.
THe article and mostly the comments were astounding.
The theme was more than Pres Bush was a man who loved his country and gave leadership and goodness to AMericans.
The writer realizes Dr Utopia is “not one of us”,,he sees that O doesn’t like AMerica. That has been my deepest take on Obama,,he is a foreigner in heart and thought. He does not like this country, he would deconstruct it given enough time. ANd he detests whites and doesn’t like blacks much better.
And the comments, I read them all, were astounding. I think there is more buyer’s remorse than we know. And I agree with him, Bill Clinton loves this country. THere are democrats and liberals who do. Pat Caddell is an amazing AMerican, along with some of the old libs.
They have been silenced by the Marxists. But they are there and while we disagree I think they have a love of country same as I,,they just envision a different future and one that I think is at our peril.
The Obamites on the other hand, want us gone, ground under their boot, a new collective society with a Dear Leader.
Is Molon a nominative singular participal, or a genitive plural noun? Also, what does it mean? I’m not familiar with the term.
“Will we see even more buyers remorse”
I wonder if it is possible that the Ft. Hood massacre has caused some to pause?
Regardless of the MSM spin that it was only an isolated incident of an over-wrought soldier who just happened to be Muslim, perhaps a few more Americans are slowing waking up to the concept that there could be an incident like this anywhere, anytime, any place in the U.S. and our TOTUS would simply shrug his shoulders and tell us to not jump to conclusions.
Perhaps a lot of Americans don’t feel totally safe with the indecisive, dithering Boy-Man-Child as ‘Present’.
It was George W. Bush who gave us Barack Obama.
Well worth reading the whole article! It actually made me cry. Wow! I’m going to send this article to several lib friends of mine.
It's worse even than it sounds.
Someone notify DU, we have found the ultimate "Bush's Fault" excuse.
FReepers are starting to realize that GWB was the ultimate RINO.
“Won’t be fooled again”.
I wouldn’t presume to speak for Free Republic if I were you.
And Bush didn’t make Obama “black” or McCain a lousy candidate.
And I would suggest against calling me a “Cyber Thug” in Freepmail.
I mistakenly addressed that last reply to myself instead of you:
I would suggest against calling me a Cyber Thug in Freepmail.
I know this was not addressed to me but I believe in its modern day speak it means something like ‘bring it on’. But, I could be wrong.
Damn those aorist participles and their corresponding, completely different present-tense forms! But I discovered a great classical Greek on-line dictionary while looking in Wikipedia. Thanks.
It appears you’re right. Roughly translated, it means, “having come, take!” What the Spartan king is supposed to say to the Persian emperor at Hell’s Gate when he demanded the Greeks lay down their weapons. In other words, come get them. This according to the Wikipedia.
Thank you for that. I checked out wiki just now (didn’t think about that before).
