This is not my idea. I got it from my son who passed it along after he got it from someone out in the Internet, and I even saw a reference to it on the weekend news. It was FOX News if you must know and it was on a panel discussion. I can't remember who said it on Fox because the faces are beginning to run together but it doesn't matter.
We are within a day of the first anniversary of President Barack Hussein Obama mmmm, mmmm, mmmm's election as President of the Untied States of America - that is not a typo. I used to write Untied Nations because I think that body is totally screwed up, and now it also applies to the Untied States of America because this country is now officially more screwed up than I have ever seen it.
This country is now officially more screwed up than my mother has ever seen it and she is nearly 93, meaning she was born before the end of WWI; saw the Great Depression up close and personal; nearly lost her husband, my father, during the Battle for Leyte Gulf in WWII; saw Kennedy die; saw Johnson blow Vietnam right out of his you know what; saw me go off the fight in Vietnam; saw Nixon, Ford and Kissinger screw up our military victory there and turn it into a political defeat; survived the jimmy carter presidency; saw hope resurrected through Ronald Reagan; saw it get screwed up again in the Clinton years; wept over the attacks on 9-11; cheered for our victory in Iraq; and now believes Obama is bound and determined to destroy America in her lifetime.
Obama for his part is still, through his lemmings, gofers, and stooges, blaming everything that is wrong in America on George Bush. You only have to look at the polls in the high profile races around the country to see how well that is working for him.
So someone out in the uncontrolled territories of America came up with the following and it is spreading across the Internet faster than Swine Flu on the Rotisserie Networks.
Without further ado, please give some thought to completing the following, "If George Bush had":
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 spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, 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 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 in 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 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potato 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 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 then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
There are numerous versions of this theme out on the Internet although I found the full script on Tom McMahon's website but he referred to the Grouchy Old Cripple website, which from my standpoint is one great blog. But Politico had a version, and the GOP itself is talking, half-seriously, about doing a website on that theme.
So, I don't know where it started, but I wanted to pass it along just in case you hadn't seen it. And to point out that all across America, and all across the political spectrum, ordinary people who aren't pushing a party line, as well as many who are, have noticed that our anointed president is getting a huge PASS from the American Terrorist Media, which is now revealing itself to be in cahoots with the American Communist Media - or possibly has been the American Communist Media all along.
Can you answer one question for me? Considering who Obama has appointed as Czars - a suspect title if ever there was one - not to mention nationalizing the banks, the financial industry, the housing industry, the auto industry, as well as attempting to nationalize medical care and the insurance industry, is he upholding his oath of office?
See for yourself: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Where in the Constitution does it allow the President to nationalize so many industries and bankrupt future generations by running the national debt to proportions that go beyond the power of mere mortals to comprehend? Is he living up to his oath, or does the phrase "to the best of my ability" serve as an escape clause?
Worth thinking about, isn't it?
