Blame Bush? I Think I Like It!
I realize we have a clueless administration... making one mistake after the next, and blaming them all on George Bush. I see where it's politically expedient to do this. Bush's appointees were blamed for the oil spill even though the Obama team replaced them two years ago. Bush is blamed for deficit spending, although this President has initiated spending gone wild, spending in his first year more than all of our previous Presidents combined, including Bush.
And on and on... one issue after the next. Many on the left said Bush was responsible for Al Gore's divorce, because of the trauma of the 2004 election.
I then realized that the Blame Bush syndrome is the perfect solution for the rest of us too... especially those who won't take responsibility for their actions, think the world owes them healthcare, a free house, free education, and every other entitlement... like today's youth.
Ever since the lady spilled McDonalds coffee in her lap and sued and won a million dollars, as a society we have been trying to blame everything on somebody else. George Bush fits the bill.
I decided to try it. If the President can do it for all of his obvious shortcomings, who am I to say it doesn't work.
I was late for a lesson this week, so I blamed it on Bush. My student didn't believe me (just like the American people don't believe the President), but I felt better.
I decided to try it again. When I was pulled over for speeding, I blamed Bush. I told the officer that he had screwed up the economy so badly that it was affecting my driving. I again felt better.
Later in the day I forgot some things at the store, so I told my wife it was George Bush's fault. She thought I was deranged, but I felt better. How great it is to have someone to blame for all of my shortcomings. I just feel sorry for George Bush. Who can he blame all his mistakes on? Don't answer that!
The Fool On The Hill: Paul McCartney in Washington kissing up to Obama!
Recently Paul McCartney attended and performed at one of the regular performer homages to the King of the World, I'm sorry, President Obama. Instead of just performing, he did as all entertainers do... proselytize from the pulpit, I'm sorry, the stage.
Somehow they all must show their Shawn Penn-like ignorance in political matters, and this event was par for the course.
McCartney's cheap shot: "After the last eight years, it's great to have a President who knows what a library is."
The fact is Paul, youhardly know what a library is, having just barely made it through high school, while never even learning how to read music. No college! This is so typical of the moronic left... and most in the entertainment field... bullying by insult, when there are no facts to support their arguments... regurgitating things they read in the Huffington and Puffington Post.
The facts are Mr. McMoron, that George Bush not only has a degree in History from Yale, but is the ONLY U.S. President to have earned an M.B.A. And that was from Harvard. There are many things of which George Bush may be fairly accused, but a lack of education isn't one of them.
Bush’s wife Laura is a librarian. She and her husband made a mini-cause of supporting literacy and public libraries, both when he was governor of Texas and when he was President.
The Bush administration oversaw creation of a federal grant program to train a new generation of librarians. It’s called the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program, and it has awarded $130 million to date. During Bush’s presidency, federal funding for public libraries grew from $163.2 million per year to $212.2 million per year – a 30 percent increase.
And then there's Laura Bush, with a master's degree in library science. She has made libraries and literacy her lifetime's work. She even worked as a librarian.
I know what my left leaning readers are going to say. "Obama is much smarter than Bush, who was only an average student. You know how I answer? At least we know what Bush's grades are... we have his complete records, transcripts, etc. Our current President is only a "genius" because the sycophants in the media have told us so. There isn't one scrap of evidence of anything about this man... no college transcripts, no term papers... nothing! Hopeful liberals can only estimate Barack Obama’s intelligence. All of his records – that’s ALL of his records, are hidden from the public. An inquiring mind would wonder why. If they were stellar, they would not be hidden.
In conclusion, the ignorance of the left is once again highlighted. Paul you should stick to writing great songs. Stay out of matters of libraries and learning institutions... these are things of which you know not. And what is your contribution to literacy?
The rest of us will be singing one of your songs in November, however. I believe it's called "Revolution."
