All The News That Fits

A Quiz For Liberals – Answer Honestly

Posted by Nancy on July 11, 2009

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

If, at a public event, George W. Bush had referred to the United States of America as having 57 states, would you have thought him an idiot?
 
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 (a fountain pen made from wood from the hull of a two-hundred year old British ship that captured slavers in the Atlantic ), 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 clearly bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved? What if he denied it afterwards?
 
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 on 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 fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment? Or just chalked it up to his being a bumpkin cowboy?
 
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 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 inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes? 

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest although there were more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence? 

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 10 times within years, 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 spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved? 

If George W. Bush had suspiciously fired the government investigator charged with examining illegalities in one of his own government programs shortly before he was due to turn in an unflattering report, would you have approved?
 
If George W. Bush, after years of America hoping for political change in Iran , had sat on his hands and said nothing whatsoever to encourage the free, peaceful and democratic protests in Iran because it was “meddling”, would you have approved?
 
After this, if George W. Bush had publicly insisted that people in Honduras were wrong for throwing out a bloody and cruel dictator, and that their own Supreme Court was wrong for issuing a perfectly legal warrant for his arrest would you have approved? Or would this be “meddling”?
 
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 5 months — so you’ll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
