Not My President [Dan Collins]

Over at Flopping Aces, Wordsmith has up an excellent post on GWB. An excerpt:

Here’s the way WaPo reported it:

As Bush, in blue academic robes, accepted his award and rose to speak, the graduates raised a sea of yellow protest signs with slogans such as “Conservation, not Consumption,” and “Execute Justice, not People.” Students booed, hissed and heckled the president, and some turned their backs on him, made gagging sounds or shouted “Go away!”

Students from the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies wore miniature power plants on their mortar boards, burning incense through tiny smokestacks. Scott Hedges, whose power-plant graduation cap even had a toy coal car, joked that “emissions requirements were waived” for his polluting cap under Bush’s new energy policy.

More than 170 Yale professors boycotted the ceremony because they said Bush was not worthy of his honorary degree. Students wore stickers declaring “Got Arsenic?” and “5-4,” a reference to the Supreme Court decision that essentially handed Bush the presidency. A banner flying from a dorm room window portrayed Bush as Mad magazine’sAlfred E. Neuman wearing a pin that said “Worry.”

The angry reaction to a GOP president was no surprise on a liberal campus

He had been in office for only 5 months.

Some critics say they gave President Bush a fair shake and a decent chance; they point out his high approval rating right after Sept. 11th.

I don’t buy it. I think most decent Americans who call themselves patriots would have rallied around the sitting president by default no matter who it was. From DAY ONE, many of Bush’s staunchest critics never accepted him as their president.

Recall the protests in 2000 against his inauguration. Was it just about the Florida recount fiasco? Recall some of the fear and protests against Reagan’s election to the presidency and how protesters worldwide thought he’d plunge us into a nuclear holocaust:

When he traveled to Europe in 1982 he faced massive protests in France, Britain, Italy, and especially Germany. Historians and philosophers of history will be faced one day (when they wake up) with a puzzle. Compare Reagan’s trip to Europe in ‘82 with JFK’s two decades earlier. Both arrived bearing the same message: America will stand by Europe. America and Europe will face down the Soviet threat together. But Europe loved Kennedy to pieces and did not love Reagan at all. Why? The answer must lie, at least partly, in a sign waved at Reagan by a European peace-marcher in 1982: “I am afraid.” As Europe steadily disarmed and her enemies did not, she grew (not surprisingly) steadily less bold and more scared. ‘63, ‘82, ‘03; the deterioration is sad and clear.

The answer also lies in the “D” and the “R”.

I’m proud to say that the wingnut reaction to Obama’s election has been, by and large, very different. When Cokie Roberts reads off her poll numbers on The One, she may reflect that O!s political opponents do nevertheless view him as their president and are willing to extend him their goodwill and to give him a chance.

The infantile left will say that their animus is Boooooooshitler’s fault, of course. It is impossible that they should have any conception of their own bad faith or the distaste that their eight years of unmitigated tantrums have left in our mouths.

Meanwhile, we can expect more revelations about matters such as O!s actual funding on the one hand, and the actual legality of the Chimperor’s wiretaps on the other, once The One is safely ensconced in the White House. Apologies? Naw, those we won’t see.

  2. “I mean, I think personally he is a good man who loves his family and loves his country. And I think he made the best decisions that he could at times under some very difficult circumstances.”

    Uh oh.

  3. People (in my family) have forgotten what things were like for Bush before 9/11. I had to remind them just the other day, as does the above example. They don’t hate Bush because of the war, they hated him before. They were deranged BEFORE.

    Me, I’m looking forward to the day when conservatives actually start to criticize Teh One (after the “we’re giving him a chance” grace period) and the criticism gets decried as RACIST.

    Anyone want to put a date on it?

  5. Am I the only one who has absolutely no confidence in The One!. So far his performance has been promise them anything and everything to get elected and then start making excuses. Already the press has mounted its defense for the “O” by laying the ground work of lowering the public expectations. What I see is a “straw man”. By no means do I have the capacity to hate a person as those who hated G.W.., but I do house a strong distrust for a man who would allow himself to be packaged and ribboned as the O has.
    The bell weather is about to ring. Obama’s foreign policy will be dictated by his reponse to how he supports Israel. He will get bogged down in Afghanistan and mishandle Pakistan. He will make Jimmy Carter’s spend and inflate look like mild resession. He will increase the size of dysfunctional government by a third, and his legacy will be “just another big government Democrat in techno brown”. Six months for the public “African American” to become disillusioned, one year for the Yuppie Boomers, and four years for the Democratic Party. The in fightning has already begun, so within his first 100 days Nancy, and Dianne will have emasculated him into submission.

  7. There’s something about being a Texan that brings out the worst in the coastal types. It’s almost as if they resent having their pussyiness thrown up in their face or something.

  8. “The answer also lies in the “D” and the “R”.”

    The answer is in what comes first, what is most important. For the far left the answer is “The Party” first. This is what defines them as people of the left.

    For Conservatives, freedom is first, family, and country closely follow. “The Party” is pretty far down if it is even on the list.

  9. For me on Obama, what he actually does and how it effects the important things, freedom, family, country, is how I will judge him.

    My thoughts/actions in the election were predicated on what a candidate has shown himself to be. In actions more than words, and how it fits or doesn’t with what I see as important. In that respect both Obama and McCain were failures with Palin the only bright spot. She was the tie breaker.

  10. The in fightning has already begun, so within his first 100 days Nancy, and Dianne will have emasculated him into submission.

    Speaking of that “first 100 days”, the effort is well underway to reduce or even eliminate expectations for The Messiah:

  11. Me, I’m looking forward to the day when conservatives actually start to criticize Teh One (after the “we’re giving him a chance” grace period) and the criticism gets decried as RACIST.

    Anyone want to put a date on it?

    It was about three quarters of the way through the primary season, wasn’t it?

  12. There is just something in me that is so appalled by the spectacular hoopla on display right now. It’s hard to delineate where the gushing because he’s black transforms into the gushing that he’s notBushMr.HopeandCHange. It’s like a crescendo of the last 8 years. U2 and Beyonce and Bruce Springstean willingly playing the soundtrack to the biggest political propaganda movement in American history.

    I don’t know how much more I can take.

  13. I love all the hoopla and pomp surrounding this empty suit.

    The fall will be that much more striking. Imagine the disappointment of these idiot supporters when he is revealed by his lack of sucess.

    Too bad we all have to pay the bill…

  14. I’m trying to figure out why I’m so creeped out by people putting Obama’s face on every available surface–not just flattering, well-rendered portraits like Mao (if the government starts ordering 12′ portraits of Obama in every post-office, it will be a different kind of creeped-out), but all sorts of cheesy schlock. Maybe it’s the connotation of religious iconography–my grandmothers kept pictures of Jesus on their nightstands–or maybe it’s because I’ve spent twenty-fives years looking at news photos of Third World demonstrators carrying pictures Ayatollahs and Noriegas and whoever staged the latest coup…

  15. Holy missing prepositions, Batman.

    And I forgot to denounce myself for the racism of not thinking Obama is Jesus and not wanting the U.S. to turn into Iran or Kenya. I’ll be in the corner.

  16. The fall will be that much more striking. Imagine the disappointment of these idiot supporters when he is revealed by his lack of success.

    Don’t worry, it will all be the fault of that evil Booooosh!

  17. So, any reactionary leftist heads exploding on Tuesday when Boooosh doesn’t spring his fascist coup d’etat against Hopiness and Changitude?

    Or does all that go down the Memory Hole?

  18. Log Cabin – I get that you could feel that way. Hoping for that nice piece of schadenfruede. I just can’t take it anymore. It’s embarrassing. These idiots are making fools of themselves. If the situation were reversed – if conservatives were putting on this ridiculous circus …

    I mean, does anyone EVER remember people cheering “Bush, Bush” at rallys? Wasn’t it always “USA”? The patriotic support for Bush sprung from a love of country. The love of Obama seems to be very a love of him and how he’s going to change our country. “OBAMA, OBAMA” is what they cheer for him. Reminds me of scenes from “The Last King of Scotland.”

    As I said. I just can’t take it.

  19. When the people who voted for this political version of “American Idol” realize that. The winner is going to be on everyday and night for four years. No matter what the plot twists into. No matter which supporting players are dropped or brought on board. No matter who are the ridiculous guest stars. It will still play out 24/7 whatever the ratings become. Then will they still get that “tingle” in year four? Can you be excited about a circus that is always in town?

  20. The winner is going to be on everyday and night for four years. No matter what the plot twists into.

    Everyone knows the villain is always more interesting than the hero.

  21. I went over to my girlfriends parents house yesterday for dinner. They had the Festivus of O! on their television. I had to restrain myself from yelling at the TV at the hypocricy of all the speakers. Those were the ones whining about moving to Europe if Bush won. Those were the ones calling the President a murderer for the last 8 years now saying how this was a great moment in Democracy and how we should all unite. Where were the calls of unity the last 8 years? Where were the huge spectacles on HBO celebrating Bush’s election?
    Fuck em. Fuck each and every last one of em.

  22. OT, I suppose, but my university is closed for MLK Day.

    If I went to a tanning bed today does that make me ironic or racist?

  23. I second that sentiment, despite my handle of a 23rd century secret agent, I come from a country that’s been playing off that ‘hope and change’ motif for 50! years now. That’s why I responded to Thor’s recent? stupidity re; the Che film, of course he didn’t listen, he might as well be a random meme generator.

  24. I thought yesterday’s spectacle was “Obamapalooza?”

    Someone commented (over at Hot Air I think) in response to Bono’s idiotic statement about the world thinking America was “gone” and now it’s back … that next time the World should try to give tsunami aid w/o the U.S. WTF is wrong with Bono? Even he , HIMSELF, acknowledged all the help the US (and Bush) gave to Africa and AIDS.

    What a wanker.

  25. “He had been in office for only 5 months.”

    Yeah, They didn’t even give him a chance to exercise his ‘Uniter’ skillset, and his lower-case ‘gubmint’ conservatism before they pigeon-holed him as a member of the ‘Bush’ gene pool.

    His attempt to establish his own bona fides separate from his Daddy and granDaddy was doomed from the outset.

    But y’all will be defending him for decades, just as you did our beloved Nixon. When it comes to justifying the behavior of YOUR Nazis, it’s all in the same gene pool y’all swim in. Nothing changes for conservatives; hence the synonyms, stingy, closed loop, intransigent, cheap……….

  26. Cowboy, why not both?

  27. If someone sets a policy you don’t like, that person is a nazi. Got it.

    Back under the hammer for you.

  28. Yea, cleo, I was all over that defending Nixon fellow.

    Cleo does all his research in his imagination.

  33. If I portray Obama as a easily controlled simpleton with severe daddy issues, does that make me a racist?

  34. Carin, I was thinking it’s a bit long for a video/slide show, but I though it’s might make a decent sound track for our new overlord.. I’ve been holding out for swearing-in images.

  35. thought, not though.

    I think I need some lunch.

  36. The Yale story should be published far and wide.

    Yeah, some “chance” and “unity” the Left gave GWB at the start of his term.

  37. Back under the hammer for you.

    Yeah, Semen just popped up for me again too. Back in the bin it goes.

    I’m seriously considering increasing the time limit on TrollHammer.

  38. Well, crap, I’d better cancel that screenwriting session with Oliver Stone then.

  39. The infantile left will say that their animus is Boooooooshitler’s fault, of course.

    It’s always their Parents’ fault, you know, for having given them life, an injustice which they then must face.

  40. The TrollHammer™ time limit is okay, but shocks can occur. I was away from my home computer for two weeks over the holidays and when I came back, they were all back. It turns out I didn’t miss anything.

  41. So, any reactionary leftist heads exploding on Tuesday when Boooosh doesn’t spring his fascist coup d’etat against Hopiness and Changitude?

    Plus, I have it on good authority – my own – that Bush decided to relinquish his Dictatorship only because he knew Obama was going to have to follow his wot policies.

  42. Will the Obamatrons be happy tomorrow after he is sworn in as our president? No, they won’t.

    I await the delicious sound of their whining when the Obamessiah proceeds to break every damn campaign promise in his first hundred days. Their tears will taste so sweet.

  43. Everyone knows the villain is always more interesting than the hero.

    Generally, the more intense the radiation the shorter the half-life.

    Then again I find Holmes more interesting than Moriarty.

  44. I have too much self respect to descend to deranged hatred of the new president. I’ll oppose the policies I disagree with. I might even go so far as contributing to a fiscally conservative, limited government candidate, assuming one exists.

    There are going to be a lot of disappointed people when unicorns and rainbows don’t fill the world tomorrow.

    Bush as victim. Please stop, you’re making the dismal man look even more pathetic.

  48. Crap, the Hammer expired for everyone today. Time for a lot of clicky-clicky.

  49. And we have two tangents already, good job trolls.

    Breaking News: Bush commutes sentences of Border Guards.

    http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D95QC1FO0&show_article=1

    Good job, about damn time.

    On his last day George Bush reminds us that he could have pardoned them years ago. What a wart covered cunt he is. He purposely let those border guards sit in jail until his last goddamned day in office.

  57. Wow, SarahW, that takes me back. I have Commoner’s Crown on vinyl – bought it my final year of high school. Maddy Prior sure has a beautiful set of pipes.

  58. Probably so people would be so enamored with The Lightworker that they’ll skip the “OMG Bush *hearts” brown people killers” editorials.

  59. “He purposely let those border guards sit in jail until his last goddamned day in office.”

    It’s a genuine mystery why he hasn’t pardoned ‘Scooter’ yet.

    If Bush leaves before he frees that jailbird, I should think ‘Scooter’ might want to talk more about what got him defrocked and disbarred………………………….

    There once was a lawyer named Scooter

    Who spied a spook’s spouse as a looter

    He got caught in a trap

    Agreed he would yap

    And fingered his boss as the shooter.

    “FitzZorro on line 3 Mr. Libby……..”

  60. So, what was Libby convicted of again, ‘cleo? I’d love to have that clarified.

  61. WTF are you talking about parsnip?

    Carin, you seem to have forgotten all the Republican attempts to undermine Bill Clinton.

    He left office with a 70% approval rating, BTW.

  62. “what was Libby convicted of again, ‘cleo? I’d love to have that clarified.”

    Income tax evasion…just like Al Capone…..

  63. Which explains how his two-term VEEP, formerly know as “the smartest man in the Senate”, the TalkieToyRobot from Tenn. lost to the Gov. of Texas.

    Also, who said anything about Clinton, you brought up Watergate, which occured 20-18 years before Clinton took office. Are you failing a Turing Test?

  64. The truth lies in between hating Boooooosh! for the way the election went, and simply hating Boooooosh! because, in the opinion of the Democrats, it was Al Gore’s hereditary right to succeed the departing king Billy Jeff-the one who had done such a wonderful! job as President and run the most ethical and trustworthy administration EVAH!

    As for the 2000 election drama, I’ll just point out that Nixon, previously the most reviled and hated national poitical figure before Reagan and Booooooooosh!, chose to do the honorable, gentlemanly, and right thing for the country in 1960 when he didn’t plunge the country into divisive chaos by contesting the election that Kennedy stole; coincidentally stolen by masses of zombie dead-people voting in, wait for it, Chicago Illinois by da Mayor Daley the elder. Nixon felt that it was better for the nation, and the confidence of the public in their government, not to subject the nation to the unsure line of succession and the exposure of the corrupt Chicago machine…

    Of course Al Gore had no such problems of conscience, being no gentleman, having not a shred of honor, and putting his and his party’s ambitions before the good of the nation; so it’s no surprise that he was willing to go all the way. Beside’s even if he still lost, I;m sure he recognized the political utility of being able to label Booooosh!, “selected, not elected” and therefore diminish and delegitimize him from day one of his presidency…

    This is tied into the second root of BDS; the feeling of entitlement for Al to succeed Clinton in the White house. The left never could any of Clinton’s shortcomings; much like they accuse the right of viewing Bush through rose colored glasses. And, they were counting on Gore’s succession to continue Clintons work in some areas and to roll back his acts that they disapproved of. After all, for all Gore’s public posturing and performing, he is politically to the left of Clinton…

    So due to both factors, Booooosh! never stood a chance of recieving an iota of respect,or even the benefit of the doubt, from the Democrats and the far left. They were determined to be obstructionist from day one, and simply wait him out until a righteous Democrat could be rightfully elected. What they didn’t count on was the galvanizing effect of 9/11 and the revalations that Clinton ducked his responsibility in recognizing or dealing with ascendant Islamo-fascism…

    In large part, Obama will get the chance that Boooosh! was never given to argue his policy wishes based on their merits. He will never be diminished or delegitimized regardless of the fund-raising shenanigans and flip-flopping hupocrisy that went on during the same…

    This is because in general the right respect the constitution, literally, and reveres the power transfer mechanism that it stipulates. Unlike the left, they don’t choose to twist it;s meaning to suit their purpose and choose to go with the intent of the authors. That a their greater poitesse, and respect for the office and nation will afford O! an easier time than Boooosh! could have ever dreamed of…

  65. BTW, have you sent your check to the UN for Randa Relief yet?

  66. “This is because (in general) the right respect the constitution.”

    ‘In general’ is the perfect weasel-word for the Right Wing Bush apologists who cast out the constitution when it suits their legal interpretation for ‘torture’. The Party of ‘the end justifies the
    means’.

  67. Comment by Semanticleo on 1/19 @ 12:37 pm #

    ““what was Libby convicted of again, ‘cleo? I’d love to have that clarified.”

    Income tax evasion…just like Al Capone…..”

    ‘Clit, you been into the KoolAid again? What Libby are you mewling about? Certainly not Scooter Libby, as he was convicted of not remembering a conversation the way Tim Russert did, not income tax evasion.

    You must be taking lessons from the Obambi Fellator-in-Chief, thor-boi, on how to make stuff up out of whole cloth and still look like a total idiot while doing so.

  68. “Cast out the Constitution”. I thought you guys had settled on “Shredded” for your hyperbole?

    I think I learned my history from a different book, ’cause my didn’t say Clinton had anything to do with Watergate.

    But, then my geography book doesn’t list Randa either …

  70. “he was convicted of not remembering a conversation the way Tim Russert did, not income tax evasion.”

    Are you a recovering glue-sniffer? Do you understand why the Feds had to settle for a tax crime in order to convict Capone?

    Better stop dipping the mallow bars into the Cheez Whiz

  71. Here’s the thing, guys:

    When you argue with nipply/Semen/Whore the Impotent you are wasting your time. What, do you think they’re going to suddenly become rational? That you’re going to change their minds? That they’re here for an honest debate? That you’re going to “win”?

    Thor is a major-league asshole poseur with daddy issues.

    Nipply and Semen are, to put it bluntly, insane.

    Their only goal is get you to waste your time.

    Think about all the time you’ve spent “arguing” with them. Think about how that time could’ve been put to productive use.

    Your time is worth something. Their time is worth nothing. If you respond to them, they win.

    That’s today’s PSA.

    Now, back to your regularly-scheduled thread derailment.

  72. If O sticks to his leftism, he’ll predispose the country for an attack, just as the Clinton policies and actions did. The question is, will O be in office when the attack comes? Another quesion: if he is, will he declare a national emergency, suspend the constitution, and create a Peoples National Security All-Union Workers Commission for Peace that will monitor all anti-Democratic-Party activity?

  73. Please listen to the sagacious SPieHole. He wants to save your time.

  74. He purposely let those border guards sit in jail until his last goddamned day in office.

    Yea, even TORTURING them, and, what’s worse, thus also deviously robbing Obama of an opportunity to do the right thing, malevolently stealing from Obama’s rightful credit! Booooshhh, the RACIST SOB strikes again!

    As if routing innocent Geese into the jet engines just wasn’t enough!

  75. Thor is a major-league asshole poseur with daddy issues.

    That may leave a mark.

    I got to wondering, though: does poseur connote an inability to truly be “a major-league asshole”? Sir, may I commend you for composing an insult rewarding on many levels?

  76. Sigh, agreed.

  77. What’s the matter, SBP?

    Should we be pretending the Republicans treated Clinton with sweetness and light and those mean old Lefties came up with hardball politics all on their own?

    Y’all are just bitter you lost a nasty little game your side came up with.

    Boo friggin’ Hoo!

    Play the victim card some more.

  78. Snippy’s right. We did Clinton wrong with our silly Watergate issues …

  79. But, if only Clinton had sent troops to Randa … I bet he still regrets that.

    (and no, I don’t have anything better to do at the moment.)

  80. What they [Dems] didn’t count on was the galvanizing effect of 9/11 and the revalations that Clinton ducked his responsibility in recognizing or dealing with ascendant Islamo-fascism…

    Nor did they predict the perfect record Booooshh would amass in protecting the Country from further 9/11-like attacks, by changing from the previous strategy – with its 0% success rate – to his new, enlighted one, against which Obama’s will be judged, and, hence, to which Obama must adhere.

  81. Oh, he’s a genuine asshole, TheGeezer, just a poseur at everything else.

  82. So those anthrax attacks on the U.S., Trashy?

    And all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan dying to terrorist attacks?

  83. Peden – the assumption is that nothing happened in the last 7 years because nothing was seriously attempted. Bush is so incompetent, he certainly can claim no credit for keeping us safe since 9/11.

    So, of course he gets no credit for that, and anything he did to make it happen was to be ridiculed. His incompetence must be complete, or their entire house of cards falls down around them.

  84. Shit, snippy, more people die on a Saturday night in Detroit than died from Anthrax attacks.

  85. Personally, I’m rather enjoying watching His Oneness throwing people and campaign promises under the bus.

    From what I can tell at this point, he just wants his mug on TV, captioned as Teh Presentdent.

    Actually doing anything? Not in his job description. Bill and Hillary can take care of all the messy details.

    BTW, has anyone heard anything from Biden lately?

    You’re nothing but a deranged name-calling attention whore-loon (don’t look at them look at me, Mommy!).

    The topic at hand is the sad legacy of George W. Bush and those who threw insults and shoes at him. To be who you claim requires you clear your fuckin’ head of your want for attention and that you stay focused on Booosh!

    Hello Sailor! Now say something stupid.

  87. The only attention thor is going to get from me is a beatdown, should he ever be unfortunate enough to encounter me in person.

    I haven’t forgotten what he said about my wife.

  88. And all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan dying to terrorist attacks?

    oh yes, that’s just like killing 3000 innocent civilians with a few airplanes. /sarc

  89. Do you really think it matters to the dead how many others souls departed this life with them, maggie?

  90. Ever since I installed BushFlogger into my Firefox browser all I can do is flay the former President.

    BushFlogged!

    Dauuuh.

  91. Heh. ABC blotter via Hot Air regarding last night’s celebration for the people:

    The concert was supposed to be part of “the people’s party,” said Shawn Paterniti, who had come with his wife Mia from Columbia, Md., to see the show. “But still, you have the VIPs who want their front-row seats. So I guess they get their tickets no one knows about,” he said, as he and his wife headed to join the “general population,” far away from the performances.

    “It seems odd to have a VIP section for a concert about unity,” quipped the local blog DCist.com. The blogger, Kriston Capps, suggested a new name for the event: “We Are One, but Some Are More One Than Others.”

    FTFY!!! Dauuuy!

  93. let’s review snippy, “Trashman” said:

    Nor did they predict the perfect record Booooshh would amass in protecting the Country from further 9/11-like attacks

    you said:

    So those anthrax attacks on the U.S., Trashy?

    And all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan dying to terrorist attacks?

    how is what you mentioned anything like 9-11? Particularly when we’re talking about volunteer military people carrying out a mission, so it’s hardly “terrorist attacks” against them. terrorism generally being defined as an action aimed at non-military targets for political gain.

  94. And, apparently air ports are JAM PACKED with private aircraft.

    Cosmetic procedures way, way up (via AoSHQ).

  95. Semanticleo, for some obscure reason, bleated: “But y’all will be defending him for decades, just as you did our beloved Nixon. When it comes to justifying the behavior of YOUR Nazis, it’s all in the same gene pool y’all swim in. Nothing changes for conservatives; hence the synonyms, stingy, closed loop, intransigent, cheap……….”

    Quit tryingto steal poor little parsnip’s act, you big bully! Parsnip’s the comedian par excellence around here! Although the ‘Snip was gracious in following your unwise theft-performance by coughing up “Watergate” like a hair-ball gacking cat–I loved it, parsnip, btw–your imitation of a fur-bedecked, grouchy feline barfing up a petty theft from 1972 was brilliant, and practically had me on the floor (I nearly knocked over my cocktail, and almost jabbed Cowboy with the little paper umbrella I was so negligently twirling), Semanticleo, you’re just not funny. Leave the burlesque to parsnip.

    Just as a friend, Semanticleo, amusing wordage is not your forte. Perhaps orgami would suit your skill-set better.

  96. So those anthrax attacks on the U.S., Trashy?

    And all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan dying to terrorist attacks?

    Let’s see Obama make a bet against Bush’s perfect record. He won’t. “You”, however, are terminally constrained to see Him only as another atomic parsnip. Boo hoo.

  97. If Bush is going to claim some sort of strange victory from a lack of terrorist attacks here then extending his logic would beg him to go gravel for mercy from Spain and England since he’s responsible for their dead.

    The outgoing President has, sadly, gone nutters.

  98. The root of Bush Derangement Syndrome is and has always been clear.

    It starts with the Entitled Elite. You got yer chip from Hahvahd. You got yer Old Families Certificate. You got yer driver’s license from a Certified Blue State. Then you can dump on a Sarah Palin, who has none of those things but still presumes to actually have a say in governance. It cannot be borne. Destroy!

    Bush is worse. Bush was born to all that — the beach house at Kennebunkport, the weekends on Martha’s Vineyard. He even did the Right Schools. There was no reason to expect him to grow up differing noticeably from, say, John Kerry. But, inexplicably (disturbingly so), some malign influence led him away from all that, and caused him to take up with them Awful Texans and (worse) their non-Episcopalian religion. All of which makes him the one thing a True Believer cannot abide: apostate. It’s just too horrifying to contemplate. Could that happen to me? To my kids? Shudder.

  99. If Bush is going to claim some sort of strange victory from a lack of terrorist attacks here then extending his logic would beg him to go gravel for mercy from Spain and England since he’s responsible for their dead.

    um, When did England and Spain elect him?

  100. Should we be pretending the Republicans treated Clinton with sweetness and light and those mean old Lefties came up with hardball politics all on their own?

    Find me a verb that predates “Borking”.

    Actually as best I recall, the repubs treated Clinton with sweetness and light because he perjured himself at least once, and lied while not under oath, a couple of thousand other times.

  101. Sarah Palin? Anyone seen her around lately? Is she wet nursing her new grand child? We know she’s got a new Neiman Marcus party dress and some shiny hump-me-and-dump-me pumps, so where is that Mama Grizzly?

  102. If Bush is going to claim some sort of strange victory from a lack of terrorist attacks here then extending his logic would beg him to go gravel for mercy from Spain and England since he’s responsible for their dead.

    That might be the most politically retarded sentence I’ve ever read.

  109. “is and has always been clear.”

    Since Krautmacher coined the term, his psychotherapy peers have winced at the all-too-obvious defense mechanism. Bush Derangement
    Syndrome attempts to color the prolific anti-Bushism as a delusion without any foundation in truth, and more like the hallucination of a paranoid schizophrenic. It’s a deflection worthy of Plausible Denialists. The problem seems to be that Bush is a yellow shit-storm of redundant idiocy that cascades almost daily upon a hapless public who can’t comprehend how they ever believed in him. It’s BDS, but pronounced..’Bush Days Suck’

    Right, the Repubs forced Bill to have sex with Monica, then lie about it in Court, when Bill was at that same time being sued by Paula for sexual harrassment, which allowed Bill to be questioned as to his current sexual dalliances, precisely because of a change in such law which Bill himself championed.

Really, Semanticleo, it just isn’t done anymore, and hasn’t in most countries, excepting the NA tribes (and that didn’t really work out well for them, either). George III of England didn’t lead the Redcoats into battle (and just as well for them!). In fact, I cant’ think of any nation’s leader…perhaps Chairman Mao, when he was a young fellow? Nope, no, you’re being silly without being funny again.

    Indeed, a warranty greedily cooks cheese grits for a paycheck. A pickup truck beyond a ball bearing hesitates, because a slow freight train shares a shower with some chess board. For example, some bottle of beer indicates that an apartment building inside the pine cone graduates from a lazily nuclear polygon. Any pine cone can borrow money from an earring, but it takes a real carpet tack to underhandedly avoid contact with some mastadon.

    Sometimes the miserly insurance agent gets stinking drunk, but a blotched customer always eagerly bestows great honor upon a vacuum cleaner! A hardly burly canyon self-flagellates, and a corporation of another roller coaster learns a hard lesson from a college-educated paycheck. When a razor blade behind the plaintiff daydreams, an impromptu CEO dies. The chess board for an apartment building brainwashes some lover from a bullfrog. The dolphin is varigated.

    Another microscope is obsequious. A pit viper pees on a customer. A stovepipe from a spider hesitates, and a power drill for some anomaly beams with joy; however, a burly submarine hardly knows a bohemian wheelbarrow. When you see a crank case related to a razor blade, it means that the crane about the defendant reads a magazine. If another dolphin for the football team can be kind to a hesitantly moronic tape recorder, then an umbrella from a salad dressing rejoices.

  139. “Should we be pretending the Republicans treated Clinton with sweetness and light and those mean old Lefties came up with hardball politics all on their own?”

    I gotta admit that the Republican started playing hardball politics with the Democrats from the beginning. Back then we called it the Civil War. I’m not feeling apologetic though.

  140. Republicans, pimf

  141. Could that happen to me? To my kids? Shudder.

    Which, of course, is exactly the message intended not just to anyone considering running as a Republican, but also in the attempted high-tech lynching of Clarence Thomas and the attempted high-tech rape of Sarah Palin.

    Because they deserved to be crushed.

  142. “and the attempted high-tech rape of Sarah Palin.”

    isn’t that on YouTube. Or is it Palin’s MySpace home page?

    Regime? Isn’t Our Mighty Fortress of Faith ascending tomorrow? You silly thing, a Regime is something that doesn’t go away short of armed insurrection. Little Kim’s NorKo, that’s a Regime. Pol Pot ran a Regime. Mugabe has a Regime. None are particularly comical.

    Bill Hemmer?

    Well he’s just a tele-prompter powered robot-dork. BUT…he was on CNN once, so I guess The One might work him up a Hot-Pocket or something.

    Steve Doocy will get fed. But only because the Obamaciples mistake him for minor celebrity Ryan Stiles.

    They will then crucify Doocy in front of the Washington Monument because his “Stiles” improv is actually Doocy. And makes fun of Obama.

  156. “Any creature who’s gene pool hovers in the vicinity of humankind would find scant reason to be humorous about the Bush Regime”…

    But Dolphins, Armadillos, and those of us whose gene pool doesn’t hover, (but is square in) humankind LOVE us some George W. Bush!

  163. As a longtime lurker around here I know I don’t have any standing with the PW community, but I have to agree with Andrew the Noisy – I’ve actually been coming here less and less over the past few weeks/months since every single frakkin’ thread devolves into poo flinging (from Cleo, Thor, Parsnip) and troll-baiting (pretty much everybody else). As SPB said up there somewhere, these folks’ entire purpose is to get folks to waste time – they are not, will not, cannot be open to debate of any kind, and the endless circle-jerk is driving away this reader at least (and I presume a lot more). And what good would setting up TrollHammer do? Every other comment on the thread is just a reaction to the ongoing idiocy of those three. As a longtime reader who used to love coming here to both learn and laugh, I’m begging you — either ban these morons or ignore them.

    Thanks.

  164. “Another 160-post thread, another tedious playing of the dozens amid the usual suspects. It’s like watching kindergarteners have a slapfight, except stupider.”

    Slapfight? Come on. There were at least a few kicks to the balls in there, and, well, yeah, I’d agree some stuff that got short-bussed in.

    But despite the flamey-type stuff, the topic at hand still gets turned back on in a second in the threads. Talk it up over at Ace of Spades and see who bothers to respond.

    PW still stays a small community which (especially when its daddy Jeff is around), tends to be a one man Hudson Institute on really good acid.

    The comments, god or bad, have always just provided the resulting trip.

  165. I was sad to see the thread devolve into another troll call and response song.
    I’m sick of it. It’s old.

    It was very old before Karl left. It’s not getting younger with the passage of time. It’s nice of Dan and others to take care of property which the owner has abandoned (and never really defended) but at this point it makes more sense to fire up a site owned by someone who values their property enough to manage it rather than waste time watching idiots drivel.

    I admire your perseverance and have no issues whatsoever with what you are doing. I also recognize that I can safely leave with a click. I check in from time to time and I still enjoy most of the posts and many of the comments.

    It’s simply unfortunate that Jeff has so little respect for his property that he allows it to be used as a dump for brainless progressive trash. It detracts from the ambiance just a tad. A true outlaw would hang the bums and laugh as they twitched out.

    Well, then, bullfrog, enlighten everyone as to how you get rid of them back in real life.

  175. Jeff is busy.

    Regarding the trolls – at times they are irritating, at times they are not. It’s sad that dissenting voices are represented by them but that’s all we got here.

    You work with what you have. And, not all interaction with them is trollbaiting.

  176. Dan, I think you and et al are doing a fine job. I like this place because I learn from people I usually disagree with without too much shrill howling. I get silly, I know.

    Back on topic, I will give Bush grudging credit for at least a couple of things. One, his initiatives in Africa that truly improved the lives of many people there. Also, although he has been called a coward, I always found him to be anything but — swaggering, even. But that probably kept a lot of malicious folks guessing, and maybe that’s a feature.

  177. I always liked cynn …

    when she’s sober, of course;)

  178. I always found him [Bush] to be anything but — swaggering, even. But that probably kept a lot of malicious folks guessing, and maybe that’s a feature.

    So, therefore, you, cynn, bowed before a “juggarnaut”. Right.

    “How do you get rid of them?”

  179. Well, we got rid of SWMNBN over at teh Wheel by giving keys to the kingdom to a few vigilant souls and regulating any pop ups with a whack a mole approach of ip zapping…

    Censorship implies repression of ideas and since they don’t have any….

    Just takes a gatekeeper or two and they will soon give up and go away.

  180. I agree with cynn (a testimonial to the cunning effect of envisioning her in a pink Yes We Can baby-t). Dan, I know you’re trapped in a world you never made, a Gitmo-reality cage, held hostage by the Fourth Estate’s liberal agenda, wobbled by the daily swirl of today’s omnipresent Marxist madness, yet you persevere and soldier on. So that the other defeated subjects might find the same strength, will you reveal your secret?

    Could he have waited because assholes like you are surrounding the presidency with a total load of bullshit, and sitting right outside the Rose Garden with your long knives, ready to cur Bush’s balls off because hw dared ignore socialist morons like you?

    I mean, we ALL know that you are smarter than the average bear.

    The proof will be in the pudding, but you and the rest of your brainwashed buddies, as usual, will throw the blame for a disaster on anyone but yourselves.

Our problem here is not that you are more stupid than most, but that you are way more stupid than the men who wrote the constitution. A closed mind is begging for subserviance.

    Yes, my screwheaded groupies, it’s obvious many of you suffer from tDS-associated cranio-facial paralysis, crazy spins, mental despondency and terminal dicklessness. And somehow through PW’s retinal horror show of your tDS I’ve developed a vested emotional interest. I really do want to see you troubled hicktards get better. I’m here to help.

  198. what’s tDS? Is that thor Derangement Syndrome? What I hate is hanging out of this goddamn hotel window into the bracing subzero NY morning trying to have a cigarette and I think it’s all blowing back in anyway. Bloomberg. I hope he chokes on it. Whatever just go with it.

  199. Yep, Happy, it is. Sadly thor derangement syndrome is a radical form of cognitive displacement and hyper-projection and usually recognizable by mediocre message board postings, hobbled syntax and a care-too-much regard for yours truly. Poor yutzes will end up doing needle point in secured hospital room if they don’t the professional attention they need.

    An intervention is what’s needed.

  200. oh. Any excuse for a Xanax is a good excuse I say.

  201. That is why God put vent fans in bathrooms, ‘feets.

  202. good call

  203. hf,
    I hope you brought your own smokes with you to NYC. Here they add some creepy chemical agents to ensure that they go out after approximately 30 seconds if you’re not actively puffing. It’s a save-me-from-myself innovation, meant to stop people from burning the house down by smoking in bed, but just ends up being annoying to thise of us who knew better anyway!

    Brought to you by the nanny-state testing and development center east…

    I believe you live in the nanny-state testing and development center west…

  204. Sweet. I knew I could make him spew four penis-related rants in two days. Wanna bet I can get it to 20 in a row? Ignore the rants about “fags” & penises – we got us a heterosexual with a Very Hot Russian Girlfriend.

    “I’m here ter heelp”. Good – ’cause Hopeychangey needs some.

    “Over the last three months, Mr. Obama has quietly consulted Mr. McCain about many of the new administration’s potential nominees to top national security jobs and about other issues — in one case relaying back a contender’s answers to questions Mr. McCain had suggested.”

    Hopenchange? Huh?

  205. “I mean, we ALL know that you are smarter than the average bear…”

    Everyone, let’s all talk about our investment banking jobs. Or is it our literary degrees??

  206. For all the troll crap bringing the site down…I do rather like readin lamontyoubigdummy. Even in a troll derailed thread, I’ll keep peeking back in to see his latest.
