Obama 'Cold' and 'Bloodless' The UK Telegraph has a remarkable story from America about a new trend that, so far, seems to be going unreported in the American media. Americans, turned off by President Obama's cold demeanor, are missing George W. Bush.
"In a sign that the Obama honeymoon truly is over, I began to hear this week the first stirrings of a wistfulness about Mr Bush. 'I never thought I'd hear myself say it,' one Democrat told me. 'But Obama makes you feel that at least with Bush you knew where he was on Americans Are Starting to Miss President Bush something.'"
The Telegraph piece cites, among other things, President Obama's relatively cold public reaction to the Fort Hood Massacre in which a Muslim soldier took the lives of at least thirteen of his fellow soldiers and wounded thirty. It is noted that President Bush felt very deeply the deaths of servicemen and women in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Indeed, former President Bush and his wife Laura paid a private visit to Fort Hood to meet with the wounded and the bereaved. President Obama has yet to visit Fort Hood, though he is scheduled to be at a memorial service on Tuesday.
A year since Barack Obama was elected on a wellspring of "hope and change" there seems to have developed a yearning for a President who can feel, who actually has emotions. In a way Americans exchanged a President like Captain Kirk for one like Mr. Spock and do not very much like it.
The nostalgia for President Bush has even manifested itself in a poster and bumper sticker that shows a smiling Bush with the caption, "Miss Me Yet?"

Here's a pic of my desktop background...
That’s the one!
The answer is an unqualified “Yes!”
Well, I didn't see it coming this soon...
People are thinking faster in a faster society perhaps?
Count me in from Day 1!
I miss him. :(
SPOCK?!!! The man-child is SPOCK?!!! I don’t think so. He’s more like Charlie X.
You have no idea how much nostalgia I’m having for 2002-2005 right now.
It’s almost like Obama is some sort of reptile just disguised as a human.
When it comes to liberals, that is dogma.
It's the fence riders that are seeing the light.
Well, I for one miss even Clinton.
I miss him, but I really, really, really miss PResident Reagan. :(
I missed President Bush about five minutes into President Obama’s inaugural address...
To those who admit it and to those who don't, we ALL miss him today.
He's a puppet disguised as a president.
Not only ‘Yes’, but YES!, YES!, YES!!!!!!!
Really? I haven't heard anyone say that except for here at FR. I voted for Bush twice and would take him over Hussain any day but I have heard no one I live or work around say they miss Bush.
Nov.4TH 2008: "WELL Burrack, if you thought the media hated me,wait till next year,we'll see how the American people feel about you"

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
He’s having trouble hiding his real feelings about Americans and particularly the military. His heart is with the terrorists.
Don't dredge the mud to shore my FRiend. ; )
He was a great Commander in Chief. Too bad he spent money like a democrat.
I’m a postal sorting clerk and someone put a Xerox of that
up near the time clock...and a couple people wrote “yes” on it. This, in a place where our unions were all over supporting Obama. Talk to some of us in private and you’d find we aren’t necessarily 0-bots.
I say we kidnap President Bush and lock him in the Oval Office.
I miss President Bush, Laura Bush, Condi Rice. I miss my peace of mind.
There is no comparison!
I remember that Rush Limbaugh was so describing many months ago. Not cool, but cold. Cold as a dead fish. Not as bad as Carter, who IS a dead fish.
He's a community organizer with an agenda.
As president, what else would a human with a normal I.Q. take him as?
both from rightwingstuff
W selected two pretty good conservative judges to the supreme court. No dem lite would have ever picked. Dem lites don’t pound the taliban and say either you’re with us or against us. A dem lite lite would pander to the politically correct. He’s not perfect but the lame congress and senate is what killed everyone. Throw them out.
starting to? Missed him the day after bozo was elected
Oh my God, that is hilarious juxtaposition of presidents!! Sharing it with everyone I know.
“Cold” and “bloodless.” It’s important that people should see him that way, because it’s the truth.
Everyone was under the misapprehension that he was warm and caring. Nothing could be farther from the truth. He could care less about anyone other than himself and his vision of his own importance. He hates whitey, but he doesn’t really care about blacks, either. He just uses them.
Malignant narcissism. I have seen nothing in his behavior to change my mind that that’s his problem. He was abandoned, sexually abused, and mistreated as a child, and he was brainwashed by communist fanatics all his life. So it’s not surprising that he is the way that he is.
Frankly, he belongs in a loony bin, not the White House. And people had better start realizing it.
I missed him from day one too. I remember hearing Mark Levin say that President Bush signed so much of the spending bills because it was the only way he could get the budget he needed for the military. So, apparently, Congress tucked military spending monies into other bills, just as they’ve done recently.
Obama is a cold-hearted snake! Cool and calm? How about cold and calculating?
But he never even hinted that he wanted to change the fundamental path of this country. While he was in office I don't recall citizens actively talking of armed revolt or succession.
-10nobama, I shout Rush's mantra,
I HOPE YOU FAIL!
I hope you FAIL so completely that Americans will never even think about electing another socialist/fascist/communist.
I was thinking more like "Q". Malicious mischief, haughty condescension, elusiveness, etc. Yep. He's "Q."
He’s Tom Marvolo Riddle.
Sorry, but he was a Tax-n-Spend democrat, plain and simple. Was he better than the alternatives? Sure. But a conservative he wasn’t!
..Bush: "..now this is called a door, you use it to git inside"
At this point, I am begining to miss the rather benign and bucolic Jimmy Carter....
At least Jimmy had been a military officer and was somewhat versed in the application of nuclear power, so far as it applied to propulsion of naval vessels.
But rather like Resident (Pres_ent) Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., or Barry Soetoro, or Mr Michelle Robinson, or Sock-Puppet, not a clear understanding of what constitutes the “best interests” of the United States.
Jimmy just wanted to “make nice” to the more radical brand of Islamic jihadists.
Obama considers himself to be a “sleeper agent” for Islamic jihadists.
Even if he doesn’t, I do.
