Just a friendly reminder.

Friday, September 3rd, 2010 @ 12:44 pm | Clueless Conservatives

Republicans still love Bush.

They love him, they love his policies, they wish it had never ended. They didn’t learn a thing in 2006, they didn’t learn a thing in 2008, they just think they got robbed by the librul media. They would bring him back in an instant, and if they could find a way to pretend Bush had been right about anything, they’d be throwing parades in his honor and trying to put him on Mt. Rushmore.

It seems axiomatic that everybody’s forgotten just how awesome Republicans thought Bush was during his reign, how perfectly he embodied who they said they were.

    More fabrication from Iowa Liberal…. Truth be told, most reasoned Republicans took disfavor with Bush and Republicans during Bush’s second term (spending and the drift away from conservative policy) and along with the war in Iraq, it was indeed a factor in the 2008 election.

    Meanwhile in the here and now, Obamanomics ‘ain’t work’n.

    Unemployment rate up to 9.6%

    So in retrospect, yes, a lot of people at this point would take even a not-so-great George Bush over a clueless Barack Obama.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Most reasonable Republicans left you teabagging whackos behind and just try to figure out how to use you without getting too close.

    You can’t fool us, Thayer. You were part of the 30% who still loved Bush no matter what the hell he did. But you know his name is radioactive and that he is regarded outside of the GOP, including by many actual conservatives, as a failed president who only left big problems behind.

    You think you know so much, but you actually know so little.

  4. Henry Whistler Says:

    I’m fairly confident that I have a better grasp on what I know and don’t know than you do.

    Your inability to demonstrate otherwise isn’t my fault.

    Ahhh, if only I had the access to embed the picture in this comment on the Iowa Liberal!

    George Bush wasn’t perfect by any means, but compared to Barack Obama, he’s tremendous!

    You clowns are trying to get rhetorical mileage out of a guy who is currently in the looney bin? That’s sad.

  7. Henry Whistler Says:

    TreeBeard: Eh?

    Dana: Miss Bush? Is he really gone, if we’re still fixing everything he screwed up?

    I think it’s rather clear that Obama has been several orders of magnitude better than Bush. I think if you handicap him for the shit sandwich Bush left behind, it’s pretty stunning what he’s managed to pull off.

    And shouldn’t your image have Dick Cheney’s picture in it too?

  8. Dana Says:

    Well, we can’t vote President Obama out of office this November, but it looks a whole lot like the voters are going to do what they can to rein in his agenda.

    Well, being out of power has given you guys two years to sit around making up things freely without any accountability, so the election is likely to follow historical trends.

    We’ll see how this “restoring honor and freedom” mush-brained pap translates into policy.

    On the prediction, however, I make an exception: Where Democrat candidates stand up and fight and go after you guys, they’ll win. It’s sitting around acting afraid while Republicans talk madness and economic theology that loses voters. Democrats just need to make two points stick:

    1. Republican policy proposals are worthless.
    2. That’s why they talk so much crazy shit.

    Obama has been remarkably sober during the two years of Tea Party Madness, and during the HCR debates he took down a room full of Republicans effortlessly. Any Democrat politician should believe they can win any argument against any Republican right now. MuslimBirtherSocialistMarxistBlackLiberationTheology crazy talk is primarily about anger. It’s the same extreme right wing that talked the same shit about Kennedy and Clinton. As always, they’ve got nothing, they just need to be drawn out and forced to discuss their actual beliefs in public.

    Of course, Sarah Palin created the model of simply running from/attacking the press to make up for policy deficiency and the inability to talk like you know anything. We’ll see how it works for Sharron Angle and now Jan Brewer.

    This will be a very interesting election indeed. If Tea Partiers turn this historically likely defeat for the Democrats into some kind of validation of the crazy, I think it’ll work out pretty well for Democrats in 2012.
