Liberals in general, the MainStream Press, TV talk show hosts and comedians and people like Rosie O'Donald, Janeane Garofalo and others in particular, loved to lambaste President George W. Bush as a hayseed from Texas who was basically the stupidest thing the White House had ever seen.

He was depicted in banners and posters as Hitler, he was ridiculed as bumbling and scoffed at by the Democrat Party.

The following email has been making the rounds and has been pooh-poohed by the liberal press and blogosphere as either untrue or unimportant.

I provided a link to each question showing the event in question. Some of the links are to conservative sources, some to liberal sources. All are accurate.

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 his first year in office-- so you'll have 3 more years to come up with an answer.

Joe - When I read the words 'IN REMEMBRANCE' and saw the picture below, I thought for a moment that we had lost 43.

Trader Rick said...

Obama should get a Darwin Award...

Joe said...

sue: Well, that was sort of the idea: Get your attention with a phrase that has more than one meaning. Did it work?

Trader Rick: Great idea! Who's on the committee? We'll submit his name.

The Libs will never face facts. They're ducking and weaving as we speak.

Joe - Well, yes, it got my attention. But just as you are a Conservative, I am the opposite and am loyal to the man I voted for. And I have stated on this blog before how I feel/felt about 43. (Did you notice I left out a couple of key words?)

But politics aside, Joe, your range of knowledge is impressive and your blogs good.

Joe said...

ablur: True.

PCC: All of their bobbing is why they keep bobbling the ball.

sue: See, you keep confirming that you are a nice person.

sue said...

Joe - Let it rest. I'm just a mean old lib who wants to get in on the action, but doesn't quite fit in.

BTW, deep down beneath these negative posts, you're a pretty good guy. (Does your wife know how we feel about each other?)
