And if Barack Obama attempted to give Angela Merkel a shoulder-rub without her consent, what would the right-wingers say? If there were easily Googled pictured of Barack Obama holding hands with that same king of Saudi Arabia, what then? And, well, if it had been him who suggested the wire-tapping and the Patriot Act, I'm sure I don't know what conservative America would have made of it all.

*cough*

George Bush will go down as the worst president in US history and there is no possible way for the wingnuts to polish that little turd, try as they might.

Fail again.

Well, we've seen this litany of whining about how W is allegedly so much "better" than BHO. I won't go on except to remind that there are photos not only of W holding hands & happily skipping down a path w/King Saud, but there are phots of W kissing him full on the lips.

So, please: stow it, sore losers.

Again with ACORN? Since when did Obama give them hundreds of millions of dollars?

And since you're asking if I'd be pissed if there was a right wing group which did get billions from Buch Co despite sketchy dealings, I think I would be.

I'd really be pissed if some company tight with the Administration profited from billions in no-bid contracts and then did such shoddy work that US soldiers ended up injured or killed as a result.

I'd be really pissed if the administration paid billions to private mercenaries who shot first, shot second, and otherwise shot anything which got in their way with zero accountability for their actions.

I'd be really pissed if the Bush Administration planted friendly reporters to toss softball questions or required that only die hard Republican supporters be allowed into the "real" town hall meetings held by the President.

I'd be super pissed if Bush proposed doubling or tripling the national debt, especially given that he inherited a strong economy and a huge potential budget surplus.

Boy am I happy that none of those things happened during those 8 great Bush years!

"If George W. Bush had been "addicted" to using a TelePrompter, and seldom gave a speech without having one, wouldn't you think he was intellectually challenged?"

I remember distinctly thinking that Bush came off as "intellectually challenged" most of the times he spoke. If a teleprompter would have helped him, then damn do I wish he had used one. It would have been nice for America to look less stupid from 2000-2008.

Oh, wait. Shit.

Plus, on the word "addicted"... I do not think y'all should keep accusing other people of being intellectually challenged.

Well, W seldom gave a speech, and thank gawd for that. I agree w/the last post, if using a Telepromtr would've made W look smarter, I'd have been all for it.

Geez, the very times that W did speak, it was always cringe-inducing bc of his stupdity, and during his last year in office, he always seemed drunk (not that it mattered if he was bc he was never in charge or ever made any decisions, except to rub Angele Merkle's shoulders, which was one of the most cringe-inducing moments of his whole sorry term of office).

FEH.

I'm pretty sure W did use a teleprompter for most speeches.

I don't understand that issue at all--it's not only what pretty much all politicians do, it's what most newscasters do, too. Not memorizing a speech doesn't make you stupid.
