If George Bush had...

Reading Charles Krauthammer's excellent column this morning in the Tribune in which he criticizes the Obama administration for still blaming everything on former President George W. Bush, reminded me of something that has been circulating on the Internet for some time. It's worth revisiting:

Obama bows to Saudi King

If
George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter
installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have
laughed and said this is more proof of how he inept he is on his own
and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?



If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?


If
George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock
by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have
approved?



If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given

him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?


If
George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos
of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly
narcissistic and tacky?



If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia would you have approved?


If
George W.. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the
non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a
minor slip?



If
George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with
people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you
have approved?



If
George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de
Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May
(Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would
you have winced in embarrassment?



If
George W.. Bush had mis-spelled the word "advice" would you have
hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of
what a dunce he is?



If
George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a
single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?



If
George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low
over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown

Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If
George W.. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report
directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is
happening in America, would you have approved.



If
George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major
corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so,
would you have approved?




If George W Bush had proposed to double the national debt,
which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year,
would you have approved?



If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

  • The main reason Obama is forgiven for making occasional mistakes is because, as a former Harvard Law Review president, constitutional scholar and self-made man, he's not generally viewed as a moron.
