Let me make this perfectly clear, I believe George W. Bush was a terrible President whose 2nd term in office served to promote his place in history and public opinion. He betrayed his conservative values and supporters and bowed to political pressure in order to appease the masses. I believe he failed America when he allowed our government to steal $800 billion to fund TARP. He became "John the Baptist" preparing the way for the "Messiah".
Just because George proved to be imprudent, irresponsible and incompetent, doesn't mean the man who replaced him will do a better job. George may have started the fire, but now we have a leader pouring gasoline on it and the mob is cheering him on.
If you honestly answer the following questions, I believe you will find whether you are prejudice on the subject. We do have the right, as Americans, to be prejudice; just don't be a hypocrite and deny your bigotry. I don't!
If George 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 Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
If George 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 Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George 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 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 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 Bush had created the positions of 32 or more 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 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 Bush had spent more than all the Presidents combined since George Washington, would you have approved?
Feel free to fool others. You're even welcome to fool yourself. Just remember, many people don't suffer fools.
