“The Decider” Has Determined Obama’s Policies Lacking

In a speech in Erie, Pennsylvania, former president George W. Bush was critical of a number of decisions and approachs adopted by Obama.

* Waterboarding helped get information and protected American lives

*Closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center is a bad idea

*Government should stay out of healthcare

*”You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money.”

I was starting to have my doubts about Obama, so thanks George for straightening me out.  Read the entire Washington Post article.

  1. Isn’t the photo of Bush adsolutely priceless? He looks much dooffier than usual.

    He’s the only person I know that moves his lips when he’s signing his name!

    “Hey George, did you forget your Beano again?”

    Memo to Barack Obama: Dear Barack, what ever George did, do the opposite, you can’t go too far wrong. All the best, Will.

    That motto could be ” Don’t Dub, Bub”

    What priceless sayings Bush has for us now.

    We can spend our money better than the government can spend our money? Where was that motto when GWB and Gang were spending billions on a senseless and unnecessary war? How many private companies in Iraq were paid billions while our soldiers went without the basics to survive – like body armor?

    The Bush’s TARP bailouts were handed out like candy and then the Wall Street CEOs only needed to make a phone call – remember? The Detroit auto companies were made to come to Congress in person to beg – and then they were turned down.

    I was not in favor of any of the bailouts but my feeling is that if we bailed out Wall Street then why not bail out the Detroit auto companies and at least try to save those jobs too?

    Have you seen the latest Republican talking point about these Wall Street banks repaying the TARP money? It goes like this – these banks are repaying the TARP money so they won’t have to be under the iron fist of Obama.

    Excuse me, but wasn’t the whole theory behind the TARP bailouts was to help these bankrupt companies get back on their feet so that they COULD pay the taxpayers back? And, since when is paying the taxpayers back a bad thing?

    If rational thinking was a litmus test for being a current Republican, I’m afraid their next GOP convention could be held at the nearest QuikTrip.

    There would be no need for a public option health care if the insurance companies offered everyone coverage at a reasonable cost. If these companies don’t want the competition, then let them get busy and enroll more people who actually need health care.

    We’ll see that happen when that lipsticked pig flies.

  8. Yeah, like anyone cares what his opinion is! Hasn’t he done enough damage? Can’t he at least sit down and shut up after raping our country and every citizen for eight long years!?

    You know this is absolutely absurd the reaction is more fitting if he had use a racial slag then what Bush did say. By and large what Bush said was not detailed but was not outlandish, yet it has been the talk on MSNBC like he had called for Obama’s death!

    Give me a break! The reaction has been childish and not nearly as much a sin as what Cheney and the rest of the Neo-Cons has been saying.

  10. I think it has to do with that word hypocrisy. Until this speech the only thing bush had said publicly was that he wouldn’t say anything, shouldn’t say anything. And now suddenly he does. Can’t he make up his mind? He is the decider, isn’t he?

  11. Probably the truth is that he is a politician, just like many others who tell us first one thing and then another. And they all speak to the audience they’re in front of at the moment. bush was in front of a supportive audience so he told them what would please them.

    Yeah, yeah, I’m late, and it’s very late, but I stopped by to see what’s been going on. Busy here, now that I can breathe again and actually walk to the other end of the house (small house) to go to the bathroom. 🙂

    I’ve read only the title of this, and I’m snorting. No, not snorting “something”, just snorting. Very unladylike of me, but good grief. As if anyone gives a fat rat’s patootie what Dubya thinks of anybody. “Anyone” includes his own party members. He’s done.
