Would you have Approved if George W. Bush did the following…: The Libs’ Double Standard

Posted on May 22, 2009. Filed under: Liberal Idiots, Media Bias, Obama |

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!!


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.

Not sure just how big a deal that bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia was, but the rest of it really rankles me.

Thank you for keeping us from forgetting all this stuff.

Too bad when we run it by the libs and they just blow it off.

If George W. Bush had…

-Yes, I am not politically correct & since W would have been competing in the events, it would have been even funnier.

– Who the hell cares about this? I know I don’t.

-Yea because then I would have to believe that W had a shred of intelligence to know other people’s customs.

-& how many “minor slips” did we endure under W? Please.

-As apposed to people who flat out lied about the reasons for a war? There are degrees here sir.

– In this case, hell yea I would have been fine with it. If the government is giving out money, it should have a voice. I personally didn’t back the bailout to begin with.

-I still am concerned, but it seems this is not really being used at all. I’d love to know where the money is really going.

– Depends, I am against the bailout, however I do understand their reasoning at least for the short term spending. As for the increase “within” the next 10 years, if you could tell me the shit-storm we’re in now would have hit when it did, 8 years before hand, then come talk to me about “future” budgets.

-I would & still do. The point is that I can read the bill now & nothing’s hidden in it, just a lot of spending.

– Yes, because a smart man prepares himself for a speech. After enduring 8 years of W talking, please give me a president that can read.

– No I wouldn’t, but I don’t consider any of the Major New outlets Fair & Balanced. They all lean one way or another & I get more useful news from the Daily Show & Colbert.

-This disturbs me on levels I can’t even articulate.

– You know what? both sides had their hand in the honey “ACORN” pot, so get off your high horse. These politicians are shitty on both ends. I trust ACORN about as much as any business, profit or non-profit, they’re only looking out for themselves.

-The torture memos need to be released, IMHO. The flyby stunt was sheer stupidity, but at the same time I also realize that pissing over $300,000 of our budget is looking in the wrong direction.
