Vanity - Hey Obama supporters...would you have approved if George W. Bush had...
Unknown | Unknown

Posted on 07/08/2009 3:08:12 PM PDT by seanmerc

You Obama supporters, be honest now. Read the following and tell me how you would have reacted:

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 Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, 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 on their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco deCuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro 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 "potatoe") 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 been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughedand said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

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 10 times within years, 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 spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, 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 the above in just 5 months -- so be patient you've still got three years and seven months to come up with an answer.

It's bad enough they have to make up stuff that GW said or did. i.e. going AWOL, French not have a word for entrepreneur, etc.

Actually it is Cinco de May (Fifth of May) so you might want to change that before passing it on.

Well, they probably WOULD HAVE approved that one.

Yeah, it was the day before Cinco de Mayo. He WAS trying to say Cuatro de Mayo. He said Cinco de Cuatro though.

No, re read it. 0bama said “Cinco de cuatro.” (fifth of four) The correction says “Cuatro de Mayo.” (Fourth of May) It is actually “Cinco de Mayo.” (Fifth of May) I am not wrong.

I’m going to go post this on DU. It will be a one-shot fire-and-forget ID, and it will be deleted immediately, but at least their commie moderator will have to read it first.

Yeah, but the correction is incorrect. The holiday is Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May. 0bama said Cinco de Quatro, the fifth of four. In the correction, the author calls it the fourth of May, which is a day of no particular significance. Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the victory of the Mexican army over the French at Puebla on May 5, 1862.

No, he/she is right. Read the article I posted. He was trying to be funny. He had them there for a Cinco de Mayo celebration on the 4th of May and he WAS trying to say Cuatro de Mayo.
