This is the quality of character that this country is sorely missing in our Commander in Chief. Remember when George Bush, regardless of how bad things were, he would always remind us of how great America is, how exceptional Americans really are, and how we would always muddle through no matter what? I do…and I miss that.
Now I’m not saying I need to have mmy hand held by my president, but I am saying that what the president says and re-iterates over and over sets the overall tone for the country as a hole. How much longer do you want to hear our president call us lazy, cowardly, arrogant, and so many other things, like Barack Obama has done all throughout his first 3 years as president? I’m sick of it, and I’m ready for a new day, a new president, and a revival of the American spirit so we are motivated to rediscover that entrepreneurial, unbreakable, enigmatic sense of what it means to BE an American!
As part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Social Enterprise Initiative, the Warrior 100K Bike Ride highlighted the bravery and physical strength of the warriors wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan, as well as those organizations that have made continuing commitments to supporting America’s heroes.
The three day event provided an opportunity for military support organizations to highlight their good work and was sponsored by several companies and individuals that have generously contributed their time and resources to support America’s servicemen and women.
This bike ride was through the desert southwest part of Texas, and by all accounts was a grueling trek. But even though some sustained damage to their prostheses, or were injured during the ride, there wasn’t a single one who complained. I love to see W. interact with our troops…the relationship is obviously a warm one, and the friendships are felt both ways.
This was a great compilation for the Media Research Center. Subjects included the BP oil spill, Helen Thomas, winning female political candidates, PBS, radical “Christianity” according to Tavis Smiley, the Israeli flotilla incident, all things “Bush’s Fault,” Arianna Huffington, the dark overlords a.k.a. “Boooooosh-Cheney,” the Gore breakup, Sarah Palin, Islam, and more.
Bozell’s job is just too easy, ya know? LOL @ the MSM.
Now remind me again what all the hullabaloo was about George Bush using incendiary language when he tallked about bin Laden being taken “dead or alive” and “you are either with us or against us“? I know everybody’s feeling all righteously indignant about this whole Gulf mess, but can you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if it were Bush that would have said this AS President of The United States?
Secondly, why can’t Obama seem to get this worked up about the radical Islamic jihadists who are intentionally trying to hurt us? After all, this BP mess in the Gulf was an accident – it’s not as if BP intentionally created this disaster, but radical Islam is PURPOSELY trying to kill us! Why is there not the same level of anger directed at that enemy? “Swift justice,” I suppose, only applies to those evil, greedy corporations or profiteers who prey on innocent poor people. Wouldn’t want any “swift justice” at all with Al Qaeda now, would we?
On This Week yesterday, the round table was woefully inadequate on the left (which isn’t saying much), when they pitted Arianna Huffington and Markos Moulitsas against Liz Cheney and George Will. That’s like pairing a AAA team with the Yankees. Nice job, Tapper.
The Daily Kos kid handler, Markos, and HuffPo’s leader, Arianna, tried their best to blame everything that’s happening in the Gulf (and on Wall Street) on “Booosh-Cheney,” but they weren’t very successful.
Sparks flew on our powerhouse roundtable this morning as Liz Cheney, a former Bush administration official, and Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post, sparred over who was ultimately responsible for the conditions that led to the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
“The truth is,” Huffington said, “that right now we have precisely the regulatory system that the Bush-Cheney administration wanted: full of loopholes, full of cronies and lobbyists filling the very agencies they are supposed to be overseeing the industry.”
“So,” George Will asked, “it’s Bush’s fault? Just clear this up.”
“It is absolutely, a thousand percent Bush-Cheney’s fault,” Huffington said.
