Would you have Approved if George W. Bush did the following…: The Libs’ Double Standard
Need I say more?? I read this somewhere and I’m not sure who the author is, but I agree with their sentiment. The double standard of the left get’s very old!!
WOULD YOU HAVE APPROVED IF GEORGE W. BUSH DID THE FOLLOWING?
If George W. Bush had…
-made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
-given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have approved?
-bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
-visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
-filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
-ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
-a Republican Congress allocate 5.6 Billion dollars for a civilian volunteer security force, as strong and well equipped as the regular Army and under his personal authority, would you have been concerned?
-proposed doubling the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved? Then proposed doubling the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
-promised detailed tracking of the spending from a $785 Billion Stimulus Bill and then postponed that oversight until 2010, would you approve or would you think something “smelled fishy”? If Bush had promised 48 hour advance posting of the same bill on the internet and only released it two hours before congressional approval, would you wonder what was being hidden from the public?
-been “addicted” to using a TelePrompTer, and was afraid to give a speech without having one, would you have approved ? Would you think he was intelligent?
-pre-approved/pre-picked the list of reporters allowed to ask questions at his press conferences and refused to call on the correspondent from MSNBC (FOX with Obama), would you have approved? Is that a Fair and Balanced news conference?
-moved the Census from the Dept. of Commerce into the White House and put his Chief of Staff in control of the counting?
If George W. Bush and a Republican Congress had given hundreds of millions of dollars to a group (the right-wing equivalent of ACORN) after its members had been convicted of voter registration fraud, would you approve of them to doing the 2010 Census, which will determine congressional districts for 10 years? Will you trust ACORN in 2010?
If Bush’s White House Staff had spent over $300,000 flying Airforce One low over New York (for a publicity photo flyby with the Statue of Liberty) frightening the city, wouldn’t you have expected Bush to make the pictures public? Would you have approved? Obama won’t give them up, but he will release the secret “torture memos”.
Obama has done all this in 14 weeks — so we still have three years and eight-and-a-half months full of surprises to come.
