Bush vs Obama

Bush vs Obama

Let's get one thing straight right off...I was not a Bush proponent nor am I an Obama proponent.  I think for myself and when I received this...I thought on it for some time and have come to the conclusion that it makes sense....what do you think?

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 mis-spelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and 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 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 created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have approved.

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 within 10 years, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 12 months -- so you'll have three years to come up with an answer.

They are just 2 more human beings in a powerful we need government to control nearly every aspect of our lives?  We must think carefully and make informed decisions.  Don't believe everything you see, hear, or responsible and make informed decisions.  If it's a politician telling you  they are doing 'stuff' for your benefit..beware!!!

Now for a brief commercial plug...I am making an effort to sell the remainder of my Collectible Advertising Tobacciana Ashtrays. I've sold alot, have a bunch listed for sale and have about 3 more boxes to get listed.

Collecting Tobacciana, or smoking paraphernalia, has been growing and while most items are still readily accessible at garage sales, second hand stores and flea markets, there are many long discontinued Smoking Collectibles that are hard to find. The most popular collectibles today in this category include the early Advertisments both on and off the products, Novelty items, Gambling and Casino, Gold and Sterling plated items, limited production items such as Commemorative and Political items, and certainly anything marked "Occupied Japan" which was manufactured only from 1945 to 1953.

Here are some examples:

That's one thing that I just don't get, SG. The left supports BO no matter what idiocies he engages in, how much he embarrasses or endangers us, and not matter . . . what. That's not how it ever was with President Bush. I don't know one person, not one, who defended every single thing he said or did (I personally was furious about amnesty and TARP and not a few other issues/decisions). My main thing, though, is that President Bush, whatever else he may have been, was a great president and a GOOD MAN. He was (and is) a patriot. I never for one second doubted that he loved this country, that he would always do what he thought best for it and for us. I couldn't say that about BO in a million years. No way. Heck, I even believed that Clinton was at heart a patriot, that he loved our country, and God knows, he was a mess. I don't trust BO. I don't think he has our best interests at heart, and I don't think he loves our country or is a patriot. And honestly, at this point, I don't think there's a thing he can do that would change my mind. I'm dead certain there's not a thing he could SAY.

Good Poser SG, you are starting to sound like me, lol. I love that Lufthansa ashtray. Very pretty color. I agree, too much government, yuk. I fear it might be too late for our youngsters to learn common sense. Young folks believe someone or the government should take care of them. Self reliance is no longer in their vocabulary. The age of entitlements is upon us. :(

Fuzzy, I do agree with you that President Bush truly loves this country so he is a true patriot. I am afraid that BO is not a lover of this country and the Constitution this country was founded upon...he promised us a fundamental change in this country...that is happening... and is taking our freedoms. I want to make my own choices... not be told by the government what is good for me!!

Ace, I guess I learned it from you:)

Wow, SG, good poser! There were only a couple of instances cited above that I did not recognize from news broadcasts... and that is sad.

As an Illinois citizen, I was hard pressed to find a reason that BO was qualified to run for President. He certainly didn't do much while in office here.

And since I usually avoid political discussions, I will close by saying that EXPERIENCE goes a long way with me, and I am afraid that our leader is garnering HIS the hard way and at the expense of many Americans.

Flea, you're a wise woman...Chicago style politics...
