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?"

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!!!!!!!
