A Hat Tip To Bush
IBD Editorials ^ | July 11, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 07/11/2011 5:02:07 PM PDT by Kaslin

Freedom: As South Sudan joyfully celebrated its independence from Sudan, President Obama hailed it as the fruit of partnership, togetherness, hope and unity. South Sudanese, however, hailed President Bush.

Proudly wearing the black cowboy hat given to him by President Bush, South Sudan's new president, Salva Kiir Mayardit, couldn't have made a stronger statement about who made his country's independence possible after 50 years of warfare.

"It was George Bush and the Christian fundamentalists who heard the cry of South Sudan," affirmed a South Sudanese man quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

But to hear the White House — in its official recognition of the new republic, as well as on the White House blog and in an op-ed published earlier this year, President Bush had nothing to do with this.

“Proudly wearing the black cowboy hat given to him by President Bush...”

I was wondering about that. Funny how NO ONE in the MSM mentioned that despite seeing that photo at least a dozen times. /sarc

Blame Bush! Oh wait...what? Typical of this crass administration. Taking credit where it’s undue (yes, that includes killing Osama, IMHO) while shirking blame and responsibilities for unfavorable items like the economy.

You can’t have it both ways, Zero!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings. Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.

Do it!

A typical reaction of this insecure person with his shriveled soul. Dear Pres. Reagan and Pres. Bush, with their expansive natures, never were so desperate for approval that they were jealous of the achievements of others.

Glenn Beck spoke to the Knesset yesterday in Israel. According to The Jerusalem Post, at the end of his speech, a member of the Knesset asked Beck to send her love to George W Bush. It's nice to know that real allies might acknowledge a former U.S. President with respect and affection, in spite of the Obamanation sitting in the White House for now.

Amen and AMEN! The LORD will remember! And the Lord is exactly who George W. Bush sought to serve as President, and seeks to serve even now.

We were blessed by his servant-leadership, and so were all those around the world who are now free because of what he accomplished!

I remember that when George Will was asked about Bill Clinton whether he was the worst President in history, he said, No.....but he was the worst man to ever be President.

That's no longer accurate.

Obama has now surpassed all others in being the 'worst'......both as a president, and as a man.

It’s almost comical at how Obama is desperately trying to steal the honor of other peoples’ work, except that he’s completely serious about it and has a propaganda machine ready to serve him.

Tanks for South Sudan - WikiLeaks
December 9th, 2010 at 4:23 pm

The U.S. under Bush was letting shipments of arms go through Kenya to South Sudan with a wink and a nod. This worked fine until Somali pirates captured a ship full of tanks from Ukraine and exposed the whole thing. The Obama administration reversed our policy, in effect supporting Bashir the Butcher, who is good buddies with Odinga, the PM of Kenya. Remember him? Obama campaigned for him.

The US Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger, threatened Kenya in December 2009 with "sweeping sanctions" if they transferred the 33 tanks and ammunition to Southern Sudan, according to the WikiLeaks cables.

However, this position "confused" the Kenyan government. The US was aware of previous, secret shipments under George W Bush, according to a Kenyan official quoted in the cables, but was strongly opposed to the latest delivery of tanks under President Barack Obama.

Well "he" can't, and there is something wrong with "his" ears.

And his bold message of liberty and freedom from tyranny reverberates .. and will continue thru generations. God bless him.

I wonder if he will be at the 10th year memorial service at Ground Zero. They said the tickets were “scarfed up” within hours. Would they deny coming, I wonder?
