Isn’t it sad that stand-up comedians, late night talk show hosts, etc. have become complete cowards? With very few exceptions, they are afraid to make fun of Obama because someone might call them a racist. Bush is still fair game, but Obama is off limits.
I sure wish a few of them would grow some balls.
As many of you know, former President George W. Bush spoke at Harding University last night. From what I have heard, the former President was great — interesting, engaging and very funny. I had family members who attended the speech and the reception and got to meet Mr. Bush.
What I found sad was Harding professor Mark Elrod’s comments on Twitter during the event. He criticized, disrespected and made fun of President Bush throughout his speech — questioning his intelligence, second-guessing statements (and having his disciples fact-check those statements). But even worse, he made fun of the audience (which contained fellow professors, students and administrators from Harding).
It’s interesting to see liberals shedding tears and wringing their hands as they call for more civility in politics. Of course, they’re doing this now that their guy is in the White House. Where were they from 2001-2008?
You Obama supporters, be honest now. Read the following and tell me how you would have reacted:
Ifhad made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had miss-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years likeand potatoe as “proof” of what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on “Earth Day”, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually “get” what happened on 9-11?
If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled
by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again 10 times within years, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to taketo a play in NYC, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
So ObamaCare is good enough for the American public, but not good enough for the Obamas???
Check out Obama’s “Michael Dukakis Moment” HERE.
Let’s hope his stupid “infomercial” on ABC hurts him, and his idiotic health care reform. Those of you who voted for this moron and talked about hope and change, can you now see how stupid you were? How you were blinded by the hype? How your hatred for President Bush made you do something so foolish?
But now we’re stuck with this hypocritical know-nothing for 3.5 more years.
This picture really sums up Obama’s trip to the middle east…..
The Obama Administration is now going after good ‘ol Cheerios, saying that their claims of lowering cholesterol makes it a drug. Unbelievable!
You can read the entire article HERE.
We shouldn’t really be surprised by this sort of thing. This is what you get with an overreaching, nanny-state goverment. Those of you who supported Obama are getting exactly what you voted for!
One of these three is not like the others…..
