Bush Must Step Aside!

Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises.
By a Democrat reporter, Chuck Green.

I think it is time that we asked George Bush to step aside so that Obama can
get his presidency going.

Here's an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes "Greener Pastures" for the
Denver Post Aurora Sentinel...one of the more liberal papers in the country.

Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat ... So this is rather a
stunning piece.

Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises!

Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first
term in office:
Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises
Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures
ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!

Wow! Talk about change.

Just over three years ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations,
President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation's most inspiring
political campaigns, the election of America 's first black president had
captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was
inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in
self-imposed crisis.

Of course, they don't see it as self-imposed. It's all George Bush's fault !

George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies
The White House, is to blame for it all.

He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for
five days before signing them.

He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations
broadcast live on C-SPAN.

He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.

He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the
first year.

He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks
with America 's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office,
ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high
White House jobs.

He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed
White House meetings.

He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all

He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday
services with his family by Easter.

Yes, it's all George Bush's fault! President Obama is nothing more than a
puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration. If only George Bush
wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved.
His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran
would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be
negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its
tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal

Oh, and did I mention what it would be like, if the Democrats, under the
leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn't have the heavy yoke of
George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door
drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest
influence (unions), no vote buying ( Nebraska, Louisiana ).

If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, we'd have real change by now.

All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care
reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama's fault or the fault of
the Democrat-controlled Congress. It's all George Bush's fault !

Take for example the attempt of Eric Holder, the president's attorney
general, to hold terrorists' trials in New York City . Or his decision to
try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

Two disastrous decisions.

Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush!

Need more proof?

You might recall when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from
Massachusetts, capturing "The Ted Kennedy Seat", President Obama said,
Brown's victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama
into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the
policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.

Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts , was
George Bush's fault.

Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy
seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George
Bush's fault!

Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for
hope and change ever arrive?

Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something / anything?

The Denver Post.)

Waah ... It's Bush's Fault!

    I'll bet y'all thought Obama was President, huh?
    Let's not forget it's Bush's fault that Governor Walker won a recall election in Wisconsin by a larger margin than when he won the office in the first place.
    That rascal President George Bush!

    From every anouncement by the WH press corps George is still in charge.
    At least when things blow up in Obama's face.

    Great post. I knew Bush was still president, I just couldn't get anyone else to believe me. But just on the off chance that Obama decides he wants to be president and take some responsibility, can we help him out the door anyway come November? His non-presidency has lasted long enough.

    Well he has substituted the Japanese tsunami, European finanical woes, ATM's and other inanimate objects. So to answer your question, Yes, he does know to blame other than Bush for the country's woes. BTW if you disagree, you're a racist. LOL

    Actually, I don't. He is not a natural born citizen. His father was a British colonial subject.

    That aside: he can't blame Bush for this Operation Fast and Furious business. His AG just got caught out in a lie, namely that "it started with Bush." It most emphatically did not.

    I'm thinkin' this is a fairly good assessment of our situation ....

    " The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

  • Cal paul 2012/06/21 20:10:25
    No. Even the liberal media is done beating the dead horse with Bush rhetoric. It's idiotic...and America doesn't even listen to it anymore. It's desperation at best.

    wait a minute, I think you and I are in agreement here, I believe the Obama administration is still trying to blame George Bush, even for the F&F scandal. I think the media is very bias, I would hate to think what people would be getting away with if it weren't for Fox News.
