Default An old lady's view of Obama

For some reason this lady's blog was in my bookmarks and this entry caught my eye when I went cleaning them out and seeing what the sites were.


Quote:
Margaret. Forgive me honey for I have sinned… I realize now that President Obama is not perfect. I was wrong to suggest that Obama would rid the world of evil and walk on water while doing it. I was wrong to believe he was the Messiah. I can now say that he is not the smartest human to have ever lived and quite frankly he throws like a girl. Whew. That feels good to get off my chest.

I am a big enough woman to admit when I am wrong. But there is one thing wrong with all of this. I never said any of those things in the first place and neither did any Democrat I know. I never said he was perfect. I never expected him to solve all the problems of the world. And I know lots of women who can throw a ball better than most men. I recognize that he is human and I am sure most people in their right minds know that as well. But you would never know any of this if you listen to Rush Limbaugh. Evidently we Democrats are deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to Obama.

Bull****.

I am not giving Obama a free pass. I’m giving him a chance. He has four years to “make it or break it” as they say. And considering what George Bush did to it, breaking it is the least of our worries. Healthcare in the United State is broken. Our reputation around the globe is broken. The banks are broken. The tax system… the school systems… the environment - all broken. Someone needs to try and fix it. So why not Obama?

When George Bush was President I didn’t want him to fail. I wanted him to stop acting like an idiot. I wanted him to be honest and listen to the debate of the people. I didn’t expect him to act like a Democrat. I expected him to act like an American. And I expected him to at least try to keep his campaign promises. Instead what we got was a moron of a President who crawled up Dick Cheney’s ass and lived there for 8 years.

If all Rush Limbaugh can do is wish for Obama to fail and talk about what is wrong with America, then what’s the use of giving him airtime everyday? After 20 years hasn’t he made his point? If he had been right about anything along the way then certainly he would appeal to more than just angry white men or at the very least been promoted to FM radio.

Yesterday the Rush Limbaugh Show suggested that Walter Cronkite was just another liberal journalist who was responsible, evidently, for the deaths of 10,000 American soldiers during the Vietnam War. What in the world will it be tomorrow? Mother Theresa was selfishly hoarding food that otherwise could have ended world hunger? Seriously, Rush. It’s getting old. Eventually the sky has to be blue in your world.

Or does it?

Can you believe that 72 percent of Republicans have a favorable approval rating of Sarah Palin? The woman quit mid-stream and even that didn’t knock her off the pedestal. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, Margaret. After all his listeners agree with him on healthcare reform. Rush Limbaugh, a man who will never have to worry about the cost of insurance and admits to a prescription drug addiction, actually wants to challenge Obama on healthcare reform. Really? I am just stunned. And now they attack Walter Cronkite … the most trusted man in America… Uncle Walter. I guess the Americans with Disabilities Act needs to be revisited again to include “Republican” as a form of mental impairment because this has gotten out of hand. And I will gladly give up my mobility impaired classification and the great parking space that goes with it to make room for them.

Let me tell you about Walter Cronkite. Besides being sexier than Rush will ever be, Cronkite was someone you could respect even if you didn’t agree with him. He knew the difference between news and opinion and was quick to announce when he had switched from one to the other. Each evening for years he brought millions of Americans together to know and better understand the world around them. He was a man’s man who wasn’t offensive to women – unlike Rush who is an ass’s ass who couldn’t pay a woman to respect him… and I am sure he has tried.

In 1970, Cronkite received a “Freedom of the Press” George Polk Award. In 1981, the year he retired, Jimmy Carter awarded Cronkite the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 1985, Cronkite was honored with the induction into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame. In 2006 Cronkite became the first non-astronaut to receive NASA’s Ambassador of Exploration Award. Cronkite’s numerous awards included four Peabody awards for excellence in broadcasting. Admittedly Cronkite was no Rush Limbaugh. Thank God.

Rush has made an entire career out of never admitting when he is wrong, and I find that very funny because Rush is the biggest person I know. Literally.

I mean it. Really.
It's an interesting thought.

Because in this day and age, acting like an American means demanding what you have not earned be taken from others and redistributed to you?

Wow, this lady is kind of an idiot. Typical Brainwashed-Liberal stupidity.

I figured the idiots wouldn't get it. Seems I hit that one out of the ballpark.

Kindly explain what parts you think are idiotic. Do you think it idiotic that she gives Obama a chance, as she did with Bush? Do you think it idiotic that she didn't want Bush to fail.

Is it only because she has views that differ with yours? You seem to like to call people names on here quite regularly when their views don't match your own. Why is that? You sure don't practice what you preach. You seem to have a lot of hate in you and it's quite pathetic when you can't make a statement without being so rude and obnoxious.

Tell us how you really feel.

Her only statements concerning Bush were:

1) I didn't want him to fail. (a meaningless statement and typical leftist rhetoric that is little more than a jab at Rush Limbaugh)

2) Bush is an idiot.

3) Bush is dishonest and I wanted him to listen to and agree with people that have no regard for America's safety.

4) She wanted Bush to act like an American. (really? what the does this even mean? because she doesn't qualify it with anything other than noting that all government problems are both new and were brought about by Bush)

5) Apparently Bush kept zero campaign promises (which promises has Obama managed to keep besides killing more of the unborn?)

6) Bush is a moron (in case you skipped over the part where she called him an idiot)

7) Bush crawled up Cheney's ass and lived there for 8 years (how intelligent and meaningful yet again)

Honestly I can only hope this is a fake blog written by George Soros, otherwise it's easy to become depressed at how blind some Americans really are. Let's assume it's real though. How on earth can you gather from what she wrote that she even attempted to give Bush a chance on earth at anything? The entire blog is full of hate and nonsensical diatribes against anyone considered a conservative. I knew I should have stopped reading after the first few paragraphs of utter nonsense, but against my better judgment I read on...

Thanks for calling me an idiot. If being an idiot means not willing to put up with the fascist, socialistic and unconstitutional trash being wrought by every branch of government, then I'll gladly be an idiot. Bush is not my personal hero, he made a lot of wrong decisions, especially when it came to unchecked spending. But it seems kind of obvious to me that taking what Bush did poorly, and doing it even worse is probably not the right direction is it?

Just remember, the majority of people that died so you could call anyone that doesn't agree with you an idiot were on the opposite side of the political spectrum as you. They didn't care though, and they would gladly do it again.

I like your list, sums up this woman's stupidity pretty well.

So if anyone who isn't a conservative makes that comment it's typical leftist rhetoric right, while if a conservative were to make it it would be meaningful dialogue?

2) Bush is an idiot.
Bush is/was an idiot. He earned that title all on his own. I didn't always dislike him, but my opinion of him changed drastically with the blunders that he pulled out of his hat.

3) Bush is dishonest and I wanted him to listen to and agree with people that have no regard for America's safety.
Bush was dishonest, in my and many others opinions. Your mileage may vary.

4) She wanted Bush to act like an American. (really? what the does this even mean? because she doesn't qualify it with anything other than noting that all government problems are both new and were brought about by Bush)
You'd have to ask her what it means, I have some idea though. I sure didn't see where she blamed all government problems on Bush. You must have made that one up yourself.

5) Apparently Bush kept zero campaign promises (which promises has Obama managed to keep besides killing more of the unborn?)
I don't recall which campaign promises Bush kept or broke. I deleted my spreadsheet of it. Bush had 8 years to work on his campaign promises, Obama has only been in office for 8 months. I gave Bush a chance, surely I'll do the same for Obama.

6) Bush is a moron (in case you skipped over the part where she called him an idiot)
Again, I tend to agree. I've got to hand it to him though, he is a rich moron who moved up the ladder with his silver spoon in his mouth.

7) Bush crawled up Cheney's ass and lived there for 8 years (how intelligent and meaningful yet again)
Bush was Cheney's puppet, not sure if he lived in Bush's ass though.

Honestly I can only hope this is a fake blog written by George Soros, otherwise it's easy to become depressed at how blind some Americans really are.I get depressed too when I see the blindness of some members of the conservative party. It goes both ways. There is blind followers on both sides of the coin.

Let's assume it's real though. How on earth can you gather from what she wrote that she even attempted to give Bush a chance on earth at anything?She stated so in the beginning. Just because she didn't make a list of all things that she gave him a chance on doesn't automatically mean she didn't. I gave Bush a chance too. Will you believe me or do I too have to list and document everything that I gave him a chance on and how well he did on each issue?

The entire blog is full of hate and nonsensical diatribes against anyone considered a conservative. I knew I should have stopped reading after the first few paragraphs of utter nonsense, but against my better judgment I read on...Wow, you read into a lot more than I did.

Thanks for calling me an idiot.I actually wasn't calling you an idiot, you just got caught in the middle of my throwing the idiot term back in the face of the one who used the term first. My apologies for that.

If being an idiot means not willing to put up with the fascist, socialistic and unconstitutional trash being wrought by every branch of government, then I'll gladly be an idiot. Bush is not my personal hero, he made a lot of wrong decisions, especially when it came to unchecked spending. But it seems kind of obvious to me that taking what Bush did poorly, and doing it even worse is probably not the right direction is it?
If you were to put up with it when Bush did it but not Obama, then you would be an idiot. Since you appear to have been against the stupid maneuvers on both sides, you seem to be giving each side equal disdain.

Just remember, the majority of people that died so you could call anyone that doesn't agree with you an idiot were on the opposite side of the political spectrum as you. They didn't care though, and they would gladly do it again.How can you clam to know what the majority of people who died thought? I am still having a bit of trouble understanding what your final point was.
Thanks for taking the time to respond to this though.

Seriously, we had to live through 8 years of this anti-Bush nonsense, can't you people give it a rest?

No, because apparently they think if they can make Bush look bad then that somehow makes Obama look better. Just like he said this was an 'An old lady's view of Obama'. No, it wasn't. There were very few statements about Obama. The majority was bashing Bush and Rush.

I erred in the naming the title, my mistake.

There wasn't much in the way of Bush bashing, there was one paragraph. The funny thing is I don't need to make Bush look bad, he did it all on his own. I will say that I still have hope, just as I did when Bush was in office. I'm not happy with everything Obama has done, but I'll still give the man more than 8 months of a chance to try to undo the damage of the past 8 years.

Limbaugh is a blowhard, I think even he would agree with that. He is great at spewing hate though and I'll give him the credit where it is due.

Have a great night all.
