Crowds boo, shout obscenities at Bush
WND ^ | January 20, 2009 | Chelsea Schilling

Posted on 11/21/2011 5:03:29 PM PST by Recovering_Democrat

While crowds cheered Obama during his inauguration, the reception wasn't as warm for outgoing President Bush –some booed him while others lined up to throw shoes at his effigy.

Many in the crowd began booing and shouting obscenities when President Bush and Vice President Cheney were introduced during the inauguration ceremony, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Kevin McDermott wrote.

Anyone remember this? The media did a few "tsk tsk" comments, and then turned back to worship Hussein and repeat for months his "blame Bush" meme.

So any of this crap about NASCAR fans being mean to Hussein's wife needs to be remembered in the light of the media's utter incompetence to hold Hussein accountable.

I also remember the trash and litter his worshiping fans left behind. Appropriate.

I don’t remember the media being all that “tsk tsk” about booing Bush either. I seem to recall it was “America’s dissatisfaction with the old regime on display.”

That was “different”.

I see a lot of this logic used by the idiots on the Left.

M.O.....oh, boo-hoo, Mrs. Beard. Fire your “director of event planning”, or whatever you call the bird brain that set you up for this “get the idiot, religious, clingers vote” event.

Didn’t work very well, huh?

I’m actually enjoying seeing the dopes (like pissy-Chrissy) fall out of love. Why, GOSH! The Obama’s AREN’T the smartest people in the world!

Oh...and M.O....just a fat fraud. Those itty bitty sweaters she wore backwards? Yep! Now you realize! Jackie K still has that “fashion icon” thingy. Moo, just a crass POS. Oh....mean, I know. I would have boo’d the cow, too. Bavo to those in the crowd that did.

When the president goes abroad and trashes the United States and its citizens, he deserves to be booed wherever he goes. As far as his wife, if she wasn't out and about criticizing what Americans eat, do or don't do, and lectures us on how to act, we'll boo her too. If they would conduct themselves with even an ounce of class, maybe I would consider your position as being legit. But they don't.

Anyone remember this?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Remember the picture of BO, Outgoing Pres Bush and Outgoing VP Cheney?
VP has his ‘go to hell’ hat on and he is staring daggers at BO from under the brim.

Speaking of ‘Outgoing Pres’ do you suppose BO will establish an “Office of the President Kicked Out” to follow up on his “Office of the President Elect”.

“WE” knew at the time this was going to be a helluva bumpy ride but when pointing out this new ‘office’ we were accused of being petty and (AGAIN) racist.

Of course sigh when ‘his’ or ‘her’ name comes up and one is considered racist...don’t even think of rolling your eyes..

Not saying booing is not well-deserved in some cases.

But I prefer public respect for the Office of the Presidency.

There are plenty of other ways to voice displeasure/disagreement with an administration.

But, I hear ya.

In a free society, they would be incompetent.

In an aristocratic totalitarian dictatorship, they are just doing their job.

As much as I dislike these people, it’s not OK to descend to such rude, boorish behavior.

In my view, showing respect to the Office of the President in public has nothing to do with “being nice.” And I think it does “get us somewhere.”

As I’ve said, there are plenty of other ways to voice disagreement/disapproval of the occupants of that office.

I agree. It will never turn out any way but badly.

We have all the freedom in the world to disagree, disapprove, protest and so on, without doing this. And it happens on both sides of the aisle.

Bush may have been booed in D.C. but he received lots of cheers in Midland that day when he returned home to Texas. I know - I was there.

What was witnessed was reality. The media could not control what the public heard. Many of us boo them everyday, however it is not reported.

In Canada, and the rest of the Realm, we have a politician as Head of State (Prime Minister), and the Queen as Head of Government. The PM is treated like any other politician — cheered, booed, whatever. The Queen is generally afforded the respect due to her, as the embodiment of the state.

The U.S. President is both Head of State, and Head of Government. If only there were some way to be respectful of the HoS, while simultaneously dissing the HoG. It's not easy, when a single person plays both roles. Then there's the FLOTUS — evidence that the U.S. really misses having a royal family. Otherwise, why all the fuss, over a politicians wife?

I respect the office of the president, but when the man holding the office disrespects it, all bets are off.

Respect has to be earned. It is not given just because you have hoodwinked and lied into a position of privilege.

Perhaps folks were booing the contempt this First Lady shows her public. Booing her extravagant vacations, ransacking the public purse, having no pride in being an American, and reminding everyone how much better they are than the rest of us.

The Obamas hate the premises of the White House, because to them it is the seat or center of colonialism. Their objective is to rake it in from the taxpayer for all those years of perceived subjugation.

In other words, they are enjoying the ultimate rewards of entitlement.

An Inauguration is a state event. It’s all about the peaceful transfer of power we enjoy in the USA.

It would have been inappropriate for us to boo the Zeros that day.

However, Moochelle was pandering at the NASCAR event. She and her husband have been on display for three years now and we don’t like what we see.

It’s completely different.

Moochelle Antoinette was most definitely pandering.

Took some chops ( of which she has plenty ) to pander to a crowd that her hubby caricaturized in his book and whose party voted to defund Army sponsorship of Nascar.

Twas lucky that it was only boos falling on M. Antoinette’s head.

Agreed.
There is literally a war going on to save our nation from the socialist scum who hate and would destroy it, and being nice toward sick scum like Ubama and his wife the way McCain was during the last presidential election only demonstrates weakness to the enemy.

Oh, horse manure.
Why should anyone show "respect to the Office of the President" when the holder of that office shows no respect for either the office or for the nation? Screw that turd. Once Ubama is flushed down the toilet next November, maybe the office can once again be deserving of respect.

There will not be enough Texize, bleach, or pine sol oil manufactured in a year to disinfect the White House.

Thanks, I have been trying to locate this picture for awhile.

Perfect emotions, Bush the perfect gentleman looking away, Cheney the antagonist, both making more sense without saying a word than BO does by constantly running his pie hole non stop.

Of course the question should be “What did these two know, and when did they know it”?

Yeah, I heard the sound bite when he was squealing for Obama to be the General and tell his minions what to do.

I actually think Chris is on drugs or drink. I watched him 10 years ago and he just wasn’t like this crazoid he has morphed into.
