Mika Brzezinski: 'I'm Hoping' Blaming Bush Will Work
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/13/2012 5:50:02 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

We've gone from "hope and change" to hoping blaming Bush will work. As Joe Scarborough said: at least Mika Brzezinski's honest about it. Asked whether she believed that President Obama's attempt to continue to blame George W. Bush for the country's economic woes will work as a campaign strategy, a seemingly dispirited Mika Brzezinski replied: "well, I'm hopin'". Scarborough burst into laughter.

The Morning Joe panel was responding to a clip of President Obama from yesterday in which he analogized Republicans to people who had ordered an expensive restaurant meal, left just as Obama was sitting down to dinner, and then finding himself accused of running up the tab.

His analogy was frought with BS!

A proper analogy would be that HE and the Democrat Congress were sitting at the table with Bush, telling him what they wanted ordered, but when the bill came, they ACTED as if Bush ate all those steaks by himself!

What a pompous A$$ we have as a President!

For twenty years, the Left used the portrait of Reagan for the Two Minutes Hate. Since 2000, it’s been GWB’s portrait.

Christians use the Apostle’s Creed as an expression of faith. Leftists use the phrase, “I HATE GEORGE BUSH!!!”

When two people pass in the street, uttering that affirmation of faith identifies you as a New Socialist Man. It can also be used at parties and social gatherings, to help get laid by hippie chicks.

Imagine a forth-year NFL head coach blaming his predecessor for the teams current rotten W/L record. Can you say coaching change time?

Imagine the CEO of a Fortune 500 company blaming the CEO of the company four years ago for the current red ink. Can you say time for a new CEO?

Imagine a dim-bulb TV news host blaming the host of four years ago for their current dismal ratings. Can you say time to fire the dim-bulb?

I saw this, this morning. It was hilarious. Mika was doing her usual adolescent girl making faces and rolling her eyes at the camera, while the adults discuss serious topics routine.

It's amazing to see a forty-something year-old woman/news anchor behaving like a spoiled eleven year-old girl. Again like an eleven year-old girl, she never says a word during these discussions, just sits and pouts and makes faces. The level of discourse, for all its mundaneness to most adults watching, is far above Mika's intellectual capacity.

That is when the program is at its most entertaining, when they all are having fun at Mika's expense and she just sits there silently making stupid faces and pretending that, for all her bovine vacuity, she understands what's being discussed.

Mika's just another perfect example of what it takes to be a true blue liberal--a complete lack of comprehension of the world around you.

“It can also be used at parties and social gatherings, to help get laid by hippie chicks.”

Suprisingly enough, it works. And it works even faster if you are wearing a beret or a t-shirt with some kitchy progressive phrase.

Blame Bush.

Blame Europe.

Blame the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Blame Greece.

Obama was elected on "hope and change" to make things better and fix the economy.

After 3 and a half years, things are not better, they are worse. And the economy is terrible for any and all sectors, public and private.

And we get metaphors, analogies and excuses.

Obviously, Obama was not up to the task and can't handle the job.

And as for his favorite analogies, try these on for size:

If your car is in the ditch and the guy with the tow truck can't get you out after 3 and a half years, it's time to call a different tow truck operator.

If you sit down to dinner and get left with the check, if after 3 and a half years all you have done is order everything on the dessert tray and bottles of champagne and added it to the bill, it's long past time to shut the Hell up and go wash dishes while someone else starts to pay the tab you not only doubled but tripled and quadrupled down on.

Do these Obama acolytes ever think to themselves that maybe it’s Obama’s policies that are screwing things up? I bet they look at the bad news every day and wonder why things are still awful. Because more government and more government control over the economy should work magnificently, right gang? These are people who love and believe in Big Government as the cure for every ailment.

That’s an old “Archie” comic line, shrieked in frustration by Principal Weatherby to Archie & Jughead in his office.

That rascally Republican minority in Congress stuck Obama with the stimulus bill right after he was sworn in, and no one told him he could veto it. Sure, he used to teach constitutional law, but all he covered was the 14th amendment.

What he's got going for him is that people don't really understand what caused the financial crisis in 2008, so he can say it was all Bush's fault. But after three and a half years of saying that non-stop, it may be wearing thin.

A. To remind her that toes go in first.

Mika jokes-- the new blonde jokes, I like 'em.

Q. Why did Mika put on a ski jacket and a mink stole to paint her living room?

A. She read on the paint can, "For best results, put on two coats."
