Always Bush’s Fault

Pastor Max sanchez showed us the way to the article by Chuck Green. Pastor Sanchez works hard for conservative causes.

The following column was published in the Aurora Colorado Sentinel on February 7, 2010 and updated April 27, 2010.  We can see that the author (who happens to be a seasoned Democrat) was satirizing the record of Obama during his term as President up to the publication of the article.

Nothing much has changed since Mr. Green first penned his piece.  We know Obama, to this day, finds it difficult to accept responsibility for his inability to deliver and we are in worse shape today than we were when he started. Bush still gets the blame for whatever Obama has failed to accomplish.

We have posted Mr. Green’s piece believing it is educational and of service to the general public. We believe such publication is allowed under the Fair Use Doctrine.  No compensation in any form or amount is derived from our publication of this article.

Green: Obama is a victim of Bush’s failed promises

Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first year in office.

Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever.

Wow. Talk about change.

Just one year ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation’s most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America’s first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

Of course, they don’t see it as self imposed. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in Congress and who no longer occupies the White House, is to blame for it all.

He broke Obama’s promise to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

He broke Obama’s promise to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

He broke Obama’s promise to end earmarks.

He broke Obama’s promise to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

He broke Obama’s promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

He broke Obama’s promise to make peace with direct, no pre-condition talks with America’s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

He broke Obama’s promise to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

He broke Obama’s promise to end no-compete contracts with the government.

He broke Obama’s promise to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

He broke Obama’s promise for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

He broke Obama’s promise to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter of last year.

Yes, it’s all George Bush’s fault. President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending, failed Bush administration.

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, all of President Obama’s problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel, North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

Oh, and did I mention what it would be like if the Democrats, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn’t have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks. There would be no earmarks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying (Nebraska, Louisiana).

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, we’d have real change by now.

All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama’s fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s all George Bush’s fault.

Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president’s attorney general, to hold terrorists’ trials in New York City. Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

Two disastrous decisions.

Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush.

Need more proof?

You might recall that when Scott Brown won last month’s election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, capturing “the Ted Kennedy seat,” President Obama said that Brown’s victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years, and they wanted change.

Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts last month was George Bush’s fault.

Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats.

It is all George Bush’s fault.

Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and change ever arrive?

Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something — anything?

Official Presidential Portrait of United State...

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Game Change has more to say about the underbelly of presidential politics. Everyone from Sarah Palin, whose “handlers” felt she was clueless or worse,when it came to foreign relations and such; to Bill Clinton who may never sip another cup of java for the remainder of his alleged “cheatin’ heart.”

Game Change, the book, reports on more “peccadilloes” by the Tomcat. Supposedly some of Ms. Clinton’s campaign aides determined, in their minds at least, that our former president was in another tangle with the opposite sex during some part or all of the 2008 Presidential campaign. Clinton, who has been referred to by some in the black community (maybe others) as the “first black” President of the United States, may have lost some of his glow as a hero for at least one of his stupid comments to the now deceased Senator Ted Kennedy.  This time his words had nothing to do with defining “is.”  His comment according to Game Change and a report by Ben Smith in Politico was as reported:

[A]s Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

Hard to fact-check this one unless there is or was a tape recorder wherever Senator Kennedy is now or was then … we could ask Bill … NOT.

Will there be speculation as to whether Senator Kennedy could have actually been offended or has he heard worse without having his ire raised?

What The Mind Conceives

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

I sometimes wonder from where the thoughts of man are dredged. A well written piece can sweetly kiss the cheek of reality and enable you to get on with life with a perseverance so strong that hardly any adversity can quiet your heart and soul. On the other hand, there are pieces written that seem to be dipped from the most illogical pool of slime one could ever imagine. Something that buries its fist in your stomach so far that your spine is almost pushed outside your back. Something so mean that your brain lacks the capacity to wrap itself around the thought seemingly presented to educate.

Such is the case with some pieces written in an effort to explain the claimed mystique of Edward Moore Kennedy. The unfortunate aspect of the liberal lemmings attempt to explain away Kennedy’s many foibles is that they always manage to some degree to besmirch the reputation or memory of some man or woman that has been harmed by Kennedy.

The following was written by someone who piles on the platitudes while not quite defining the attitudes of a faux-hero that fought the demons of his character all the days of his life :

“…We don’t know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she’d have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history. What we don’t know, as always, could fill a Metrodome. Still, ignorance doesn’t preclude a right to wonder. So it doesn’t automatically make someone (aka, me) a Limbaugh-loving, aerial-wolf-hunting NRA troll for asking what Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted’s death, and what she’d have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded.

Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.”

Malissa Lafsky penned this mixture of slop and suet. It looks to be a soliloquy that should, but never quite unravels in the mind of the author. It fails to explain her effrontery in posing her very idiotic question. Ms. Lafsky, who describes herself as an ex-lawyer needs to take a bite of reality and learn to be more thoughtful … or just censor herself out of existence as a tool of liberalism…

And maybe, just maybe, she’d feel worth it.

If you wish to read the entire liberal soup … here it is SOUP

Laughing At Chappaquiddick

Chappaquiddick (Dike) Bridge 2008

Chappaquiddick (Dike) Bridge 2008

If you were to be asked whether you feel humor when someone mentions Chappaquiddick or if you find any part of the death of Mary Joe Kopechne in the least amusing, I trust your answers would be, “Hell no.” I am amazed that according to at least one person, the man being put under on this day might have been able to find humor, rather than remorse, in the death of Ms. Kopechne.

Why do I report further, that Theodore Moore Kennedy may have found something to laugh at with the end of the life he managed to drown in a moment of carelessness or contrived negligence.  Why? Because even monsters such as Hitler, Saddam Insane Hussein and Ted Bundy may be capable of delivering love, compassion and good will toward people with whom they have come in contact, but they were still evil beyond comparison. Could the same apply to Kennedy … I guess it depends on how well you have been vaccinated against and how tolerant you may be for cruel folks who laugh at cruel incidents in which they had a hand.

You can listen to the entire following interview which I will point you toward or you can start into the interview at around the 30 minute mark to hear an assertion that may shock you, but for sure will get your attention for pure rotten chutzpah. Click right here

NOT MY HERO

Ted Kennedy – A Special Person?

By Bob Steiner

Whenever or wherever the “Kennedy” name is mentioned  it is normally done in a respectful manner.  When one thinks about the many sacrifices this family has made over the years on behalf of our country,  it is hard not to be appreciative of their many contributions.  Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. was a  B-24 pilot in the Air Force during  World War II.  He died while on bombing mission over German-occupied Europe.  Of course, everyone knows the story of John F. Kennedy.  As the commander of a Patrol Torpedo boat during World War II, he attained hero status for his service in the Pacific, even before being elected as our President. Of course everyone  knows about that sad day in November 1963 when he gave his life for our country.  While Robert Kennedy did not serve in the armed forces, as U.S. Attorney General  he too, was a hero by pushing civil rights issues. During the ’68 presidential campaign he was shot to death in San Francisco by a Palestinian immigrant named Sirhan-Sirhan.

After the three older Kennedys, we come to the youngest brother, Edward Theodore.  “Teddy” Kennedy seems to have been  the least-gifted son of the family.  With such talented and famous brothers it certainly must have been awkward for him, growing up in their proximity.  In any event,  on the “back” of the family name he has managed to make a “name” for himself, albeit not in the manner the rest of his family would endorse.

Obama & Edward Kennedy

Obama & Edward Kennedy

Since he was elected to the senate to replace his brother John, the one area where he has excelled was in promoting a national health care plan.  Even now, as it appears he is approaching the end of his life, he continues to work hard on this issue. See Notable Names Data Base.    Yesterday he contacted the Governor of his home state, Massachusetts,  and  apparently, sensing he may soon succumb to Cancer, requested that his state’s rules regarding succession be changed so Massachusetts will not be without representation in the event a vote on Obama’s health program should come before the senate.

Presently, if a senate incumbent in his state were to resign, die, or otherwise vacate his position, the law requires there be a “cooling off” period of five months, during which, the state has no one occupying that position. After this period of time the Governor would then call a special election to fill the vacancy. He has requested that the law be changed so the Governor (a Democrat and supporter of the  president) could  immediately appoint a new senator, should a senate position become vacant. This action would insure that the President would have  the maximum  support for his health plan in the Senate if the matter were to come to a vote.  While outwardly this sounds like a noble venture ,  I find  Mr. Kennedy’s action to be at the least high-handed, yet typical of a self-centered person who is willing to do anything  to further his own cause. It is interesting to note that he was the person who pushed the “five month” rule when Mitt Romney, a Republican, was governor. This is truly a shameful example of the partisan politics in Massachusetts and Ted Kennedy‘s role  as an “honorable ” politician.
