You have GOT to be kidding me, right? Today on The View, Whoopi brought up the subject of Bush’s final press conference he recently gave, and opened the topic up for discussion.
Katrina was brought up, because Bush said there were some things done wrong after Katrina, but he said he felt it would have been disruptive to land in the middle of the evacuations, and Behar asked “disruptive to what?” Well, Joy, knowing you, if Bush HAD landed, taken away local law enforcement resources to watch his caravan, you and your ilk would have been belly-aching about “why did he have to grandstand and hog the spotlight?” or “that was just a photo-op.” You see, Joy, Bush just cannot win with people like you, and he never would have. You would find some fault no matter what his decisions were in that case. Were mistakes made? Hell yeah! But as Elisabeth tries to rightly point out, neither Chocolate City Mayor Ray Nagin nor Gov. Kathleen Blanco have clean hands on that one either, but as usual, Elisabeth didn’t get to finish that point.
Wow! This is a first. I never thought I’d see this day happen. Maybe it was because Elisabeth was not on the show today, due to the passing of her grandfather, and the audience felt they had to speak for HER at this libtard Behar’s usual Bush jokes. It’s also funny that she’s also highlighting her stupidity – she said when she didn’t have money to repair a car, but the dashboard light was on, she put a band-aid on it? That explains EVERYTHING!
What a moronic bitch. And GOOD ON the audience for her lame Bush joke against that backdrop.
P.S. Prayers for Elisabeth and her family in this tough time.
Today on Fox News Sunday, George H.W. Bush was on to talk about many things, but one thing that was brought up was the way the press has treated his son. Papa Bush didn’t pull any punches. Here’s a transcript of this portion of the tape:
WALLACE: Iâ€™m going to ask you about that, because you were quoted recently as saying, â€We want to get our son home. We want to get him home from the rat race and all the unfair attacks.â€
G.H.W. BUSH: Yes.
WALLACE: How tough has that been on him? How tough has it been on you?
G.H.W. BUSH: Well, I donâ€™t know about him, but itâ€™s been tough on his father and his mother. Weâ€™re not very good sports about sitting around and hearing him get hammered, I think unfairly. Now, thereâ€™s some things that clearly he deserves criticism for, but I think â€” I think the idea that everything thatâ€™s a problem in this country should be put on his shoulders â€” I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s fair.
And Iâ€™m not trying to get back in the game by criticizing people â€” for example, The New York Times â€” but if Iâ€¦
Today, violence in Iraq is the lowest it’s ever been, and by all accounts, the Iraq war has been won. Where is the media to praise President Bush for this?
I could go on and on and on with example after example, but for everything the left has blamed Bush for, they have failed to give him credit when the reverse results were true, regardless of the event. But then again, I guess that just goes to the known double-standard I’ve observed in the press. If it helps Bush, don’t print it – if it hurts Bush, it’s front page for months.
I was just watching the Kennedy Center Honors tonight, and one of the honorees was Barbra Streisand (okay, okay! just read a bit more will ya?). I seem to remember a particular awkward embrace being discussed in the media, but out of curiosity I took a peek at her website, and was quite surprised at her own words. This is what she had to say:
Last weekend, I was in Washington DC to accept the Kennedy Center Honors, and I noticed that the kiss between me and the â€œsoon to be formerâ€ President Bush created quite a stir. The Today Show even proclaimed that it was a sign of the apocalypse. The timing is ironic. After eight years of President Clinton and on the cusp of at least four years of President Obama, I get selected to receive this prestigious awardâ€¦during the Bush Administration. I have never met George W. Bush, but for the past eight years I have been blogging about him and his administration on my web site. I have relayed my frustration at the direction he has taken our country in no uncertain terms. So it was just as surprising to me as it apparently was to the press that upon meeting President Bush and extending my hand to him, he said to me, â€œAw câ€™mon, gimme a hug and a kiss,â€ and then he proceeded to embrace me. I must say, I found him very warm and completely disarmingâ€¦even though I think he was kissing me hello as I was kissing him goodbyeâ€¦
