We're not laughing now (Sure we are, at you: “eloquence of a second greater.”)

Posted on 07/18/2006 8:51:14 AM PDT by Liberty Toad

Remember back in 200 when George W. Bush was running for President? Even if you didn't support him, you were somewhat anticipating a Presidency with this amusing guy who didn't know the names of foreign leaders and who spoke with the eloquence of a second greater. Remember how after he was elected,Comedy Central even saw his Presidency as being whimsical enough to create a show, "That's my Bush." It was a laugh a minute back in those Bush salad days.

Now we have quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan, a budding world war centered around Israel, $3 a gallon gas, $85 a barrel oil, the return of stagflation, a ballooning budget deficit, and a world that hates us.

I really don't feel like laughing anymore.

We have a Dow at nearly 11,000 after a drop of over 3,000 points immediately after 9/11, less than 5% unemployment.
And my friends in Iraq and Afghanistan would beg to differ with you regarding a quagmire. You wouldn't know a quagmire if it bit you on the ass, spun you around, shook hands and said hello. Stop using words that are too big for you, okay?
I'm sure people need some color copies over there at the Kinkos - go help the nice customers.

I don't think that anyone who says we are currently in "stagflation" is oversimplifying. He is making so absurd and baseless a characterization of the situation that he simply cannot be treated as an equal. My guess is s/he was drunk -- if only with rage -- when s/he posted that rant.

Thanks for saving me so much time - (seconds seem like minutes). It is better to learn didactically than experientially.

While I think that this post is an oversimplification, I would have expect FReepers to come out with more intellegent arguements, most of these posts are lame

Why don't you do it then ?, come out with more intellegent arguements, the ones you wish to see ?

Meanwhile, let the rest of us play !

You're an idiot. Of course that goes without saying, because you are also a troll. "That's My Bush" was created by the creators of South Park, mainly because they liked him. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it hippy.

Really? I hadn't noticed. Last time I looked, we were kicking major islamofasist A$$!

a budding world war centered around Israel

Try centered around Iran and their "gifted" leader, Amadingynutjob.

$3 a gallon gas

$2.70 here.

$85 a barrel oil

Cuz you refuse to let the oil companies drill for new sources.

the return of stagflation

Not even close, junior.

a ballooning budget deficit

Which has been projected DOWN 3 times in the fiscal year

and a world that hates us.

Like I give a rat's rear what the French think of us!

Go back to where you came from and don't come back until you grow a brain....

Can someone tell me what the President has to do with gas prices?

They keep running this argument. What was HILARIOUS was there was a protest the other day here in Milwaukee where one guy had a sign that said "WHY ARE WE PAYING $3 A GALLON FOR GAS" and another guy had a sign that said "NO MORE TAX SUBSIDIES FOR OIL COMPANIES!"

I mean WTH???

Facts, instead of insults, tend to work better; otherwise, we are in the same boat as 20-something college liberals who can't formulate an intellegent arguement and resort to debased forms of communication (i.e. students arrested at UT-Austin when Ann Coulter spoke).

Were these protesters holding bottled water? I doubt they ever took the time to calculate what they have been paying for a gallon of water. Or soda...

$3 a gallon gas

This confuses me greatly.

Ten years ago or so (remember how you still played outdoors then until Mommy had to call you in, and now how she can't get you out of her basement?) your kind were complaining that gas here in the U.S. was TOO CHEAP (evil Oil Company subsidies by the U.S. Government while the godlike world government types were paying through the nose)?

And remember when you & yours said several bajillion times during the '04 Presidential campaign that President Bush (we call him that here) would get the price down by just calling up his family friends, the Saudis? 'Member that?



You also said that he would use exploit his flight suit photos in the campaign. Well? I'm still waiting.... *sigh* looks like we'll have to do it ourselves.



...eloquence of a second greater.

Oh, geez -- You mean President Bush even got better grades than Jen•Jis way back in the second great? I thought the academic outing of Thurston "Lovey Had All The Bucks" Howell (previously was known/sounded like Chatsworth Osborne, Jr.) was when Dubya got better grades in college! Go figure!


I really don't feel like laughing anymore.

Me neither! So I brought in the Big Guns:

There...of course, maybe you were around in 200, but the rest of us are a little younger than that. And maybe GWB is the second "greater" Republican president we've had in the last 20 years, Reagan being the first "greater."
