Obama Responds to Bush and McCain

It looked like this (actual response here):

You better bring some better game than “hysterical diatribe,” McCainiacs.

“B-b-b-but it’s Different When I do It!”

President Bush, yesterday: “Obama would sit down with terrorist appeasers!!”

President Bush, today: “Welcome to Saudi Arabia, good buddy!!”


Bush’s Speech

Bush’s “appeasement” speech has been discussed in detail everywhere today, and I don’t have a unique take on it other than that he remains true to form- a jackass. I will note that whoever it was that remarked that all history for wingnuts begins and ends with Hitler has some more evidence.

I did, however, just see the speech, and I have to say it fills me with pride to watch my President be unable to pronounce the word “argument.”

Just go away, you buffoon.

*** Update ***

Matthews is hammering some guy on Hardball, and it is glorious. “What did Chamberlain do wrong?” and the guy does not know. I will have the video as soon as possible.

Matthews is hammering him- “You don’t know. You don’t know what you are talking about.”

He just ended with the statement “I gotta go to someone who knows something about history. He is as bad as the press secretary who does not know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was.”

This was, without a doubt, the finest hour for Chris Matthews. I take back everything negative I have ever said.


It is painful to watch. I love how he turns redder and redder and just yells appeaser.

What is So Special About 2013


In a speech in the heart of Ohio, a major battleground state in the fall election, Mr. McCain set forth a sweeping, extraordinarily positive vision of what the world will look like 2013, when he says he will have been in the White House for four years.

“By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom,’’ Mr. McCain said at the Columbus Convention Center. “The Iraq War has been won. Iraq is a functioning democracy, although still suffering from the lingering effects of decades of tyranny and centuries of sectarian tension. Violence still occurs, but it is spasmodic and much reduced.’’

McCain isn’t even President yet and he is dumping it off on another administration in 2013. That is all kinds of awesome.

These people will say anything.

Barack Obama: Kinda Like a Nazi Appeaser

President Bush – Asshole (redundant, I know):

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” said Bush, in what White House aides privately acknowledged was a reference to calls by Obama and other Democrats for the U.S. president to sit down for talks with leaders like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“We have heard this foolish delusion before,” Bush said in remarks to the Israeli Knesset. “As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American Senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

What a fucking jerk. Nobody has ever sugested negotiating with terrorists – NOBODY. What Barack Obama has suggested, and what was made clear by the Obama campaign this morning, is that:

“Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy — to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the President’s extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.”

We should have a January 20, 2009 countdown ticker at this blog, and I think we should have a national celebration when this criminal leaves office. I mean a truly national celebration, with fireworks, street parties, city proclamations, etc that would be televised all over the world. I want President Bush’s last day in office to be the most huniliating experience of his life – one where the American people show him how absolutely jubliant they are that he is no longer the leader of this country. We could call it “National Thank Fucking God Day” or something like that.
