President Obama Insults Former President Bush At His Own Portrait Hanging
The Blaze ^ | 5/31/12 | Mytheos Hold

Posted on 05/31/2012 9:51:15 PM PDT by Nachum

Apparently, as with so many other things, some people who hold the Presidency have class and some don’t. To all appearances, former President George W. Bush is the former, and current President Barack Obama is the latter, at least if this afternoon‘s unveiling of former President Bush’s Presidential portrait is any guide.

This event – which is, at least in theory, supposed to be free of partisan sniping, got an earful of just that when President Obama gave his introductory remarks welcoming Bush:

President Obama on Thursday twisted the knife he‘d stuck in his predecessor’s legacy, reminding former President George W. Bush that he left the economy a mess and al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden alive when he left the White House three years ago.

“The months before I took the oath of office were a chaotic time,” Obama told a crowd of mostly former Bush administration officials and members of the Bush family, including Bush’s parents, former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush.[...]

“We knew our economy was in trouble, our fellow Americans were in pain, but we wouldn’t know until later just how breathtaking the financial crisis had been,” Obama continued, raising some eyebrows among the Bush crowd seated just a few feet away.

There will be more blowback from these remarks, IMO.

Obama is a total, complete and unmitigated ass. And all that voted for him and all those that will vote for him fall into the same category. IMHO

Is anyone surprised?

Even if it is satire, it is believable of this cretin.

It would be poetic justice for obama to speak at Romney's inauguration and have the crowd start chanting “ solyndra”.

I remember the tacky dem crowd when Bush spoke at zozero’s inauguration

Zero has insulted all of us and all that we all hold sacred. Insulting President Bush is just a small portion of what this idiot has done. President and Mrs Bush handled it the way they have handled everything. They handled it with grace, style and class. A very foreign concept to RAT presidents, past and present.

Obama is in for a terrific humbling. He’ll be humbled like no one in history.

He deserves only the very worst.

I have to admit I was disbelieving. But Youtube has this “introductory speech”. I am completely shocked and awed.

W’s comments were very humorous, but in context, he may have been being sarcastic as well.

The Won is even a more classless jerk than I imagined.

I really, really don’t like O. I don’t usually wish bad on anybody, but I wish someone would give a disrespectful moment to him when his portrait is revealed.

I volunteer.

That remark made me uncomfortable also, not that it wasn’t accurate, I mean it was a crisis, it loomed right before the election and both candidates were called to the White House, and no one knew how deep it was going to be at the time.

It’s just that why bring it up, unless Barky is lost in making fund raising speeches 24/7 and fell back into his mime for the cash tour he’s taking.

Michelle looked VERY tempermental toward Barky today. VERY.
At the end, following the speeches, during the shuffle of couples for photos, she was befuddled where to stand exactly and gave Barky a look to kill, resenting his finger pointing and arranging her, seemingly. Barely got the scowl off her face in time to smile for the camera.

There’s something going on there, between those two, Michelle and BO.

I am certain that the Big Zero will have to answer to history and be treated far worse than George W.

I am also certain, the Big Zero will likely be found to have gotten greedy and violated a host of laws involving bribery or at least to having gotten and used false identities for some illegal purpose.

Karma is a bitch.

Whatever it is.... I hope they do it to each other! I would LOVE to see a volcanic eruption between them (like in the movie What's Love Got to do With It, when Ike & Tina got into a knock down, bloody fight in the limo) and to see Michelle & 0dumb0 clubbing & clawing & screaming at each other on national TV. Ohhhh I would LOVE to see that!

Seriously, I’d go up against the Italian Mafia or the Russian Mob before I went up against the Bush, Rockefeller or Kissinger folks. I guess no one ever explained that to Barry or his 20-something speechwriters. BTW, can you put an insurance policy on someone else?

No satire - those are direct quotes as reported in the Washington Examiner (link in The Blaze article).

You probably don’t follow the Ulsterman Report, with the White House Insider interviews he publishes regularly, but I do. The Insider said on certain levels Barack hates both Valerie and Michele, however, even Michelle defers to Valerie. (It’s a Valerie presidency.) For months the Insider reports that he is hearing that Michelle is miserable.

The volcanic erruptions occur, just not in public.

Nice diss of Michelle by W...

"It is my privilege to introduce the greatest first lady ever," he said, then paused to acknowledge his mother. "Sorry, Mom," he quipped.

Gee, I hope you’re both right. Payback by the Bush’s must be very subtle and a sophisticated operation, because you never hear a word uttered of them ever ending careers of enemies, banishing a soul. They are seen just floating through all things in gauzey graciousness. Now Barbara. SHE might be more than willing to take a switch to someone’s netheregion.

Who did not see this coming? It was virtually guaranteed Obama would find a way to insult Bush at the unveiling of his portrait. The only question was, how would he do it?

Obama is the slimiest prez we have ever had, and hopefully will ever have. I have no doubt that he informed his partners in crime of the insult he would deliver so they could snicker and laugh when it occurred. Classic Leftists, no morals, no ethics, no class, no soul, just darkness. Ugh.

neither does his wife.”

Barbara used to come to my grandson’s school years ago every other month and was their “story lady”. That is one lady that never minces words but she does choose her time and place. She is the best I have ever seen when completing any standard southern statement that begins with “Well, bless her heart....”

Could this have all started when Reggie Love left the building? Maybe Barry is miserable and he is taking it out on Michele. Hmmmm... Inquiring minds want to know.

BINGO!! I've been saying "WATCH the vacations they take this summer"!!! If Michelle and the girls go on more expensive vacations, Bammy is feeling he's got the election in the bag. If they go to State Fairs and such, he KNOWS he;s in trouble.

MICHELLE will be very,very unhappy if she can't take her entourage on million dollar trips this summer.
