Yes it is, except vacation comes first.
Spotted at Wegman’s in Ithaca:
Always the Projection… (not that the Bushes had coherent or conservative economic plans).
The more I dig, the more the Bushes are not my cup of tea.
I despise and denounce the lie Bush II fomented about Islam right after 911.
He did not tell the truth. Whether he did so intentionally or not, we may never know. It was a lie nonetheless and I greatly resented the gobblydegook readings from the Koran during the 9/11 memorial ceremonies.
I have come to the same conclusions with regard to Bush.
That being said, he respected the office of POTUS – no shoes thrown up on the Resolute desk in the Oval Office and he and Laura dressed accordingly – no sloppy beach wear getting on and off or Force One.
You’d think the owner of the vehicle with the bumper sticker would attempt to remove that sticker – after Mooch’s 17th vacation in 3 1/2 years.
17 vacations? I am sure that will be revised up, unexpectedly of course.
Eh…Bush’s vacations were far longer….silly issue.
I think Bush invented “staycations” – pretty much his “vacations” were like extended weekends holed up at home. I betcha the security and logistical costs of one or two of Obama’s vacations exceeded the costs of all 8 years worth of Bush vacations. No contingents of Secret Service caravans heading down to the ice cream shop.
Yeah, I know what you mean…
I remember when Booooosh took a vacation to Buckingham Palace where he kicked out staff so his entourage could have the 200 rooms the needed, and of course, he had to have bullet proof glass installed so he was safe – because places like where the Queen live are clearly in a bad neighborhood where someone of importance is probably unsafe…
Oh and then of course, when he was on this vacation, Boooooosh made a complete ass of himself! His massive armored limo got stuck on a raised driveway in Ireland, stranding him and his wife in the back. His wife walked around with a hair-spike looking like the Grinch then stupidly put her hands on the Queen. He signed the wrong year in the Westminster Abby guest book, apparently still stuck in his election year 3 years after the fact. Oh, and then Booooosh had possibly the most embarrassing moment any president has ever had when he fumbled through the Queens toast, talked through the National Anthem and drank before the Queen before having to be put in place by the Distinguished Lady.
Wait, that wasn’t Booooosh, was it…
Here’s a picture of Bush with his feet up on the desk, as well as President Ford.
Another silly issue…the president lives in the White House, he can put his feet up if he wants to.
So, and I want an answer….are Bush (and Ford) disrespecting “the office of POTUS”?
You guys are so silly.
Bush economic plans = Obama’s = Keynesian claptrap.
More importantly, I just miss Wegmans. Their house branded chips are the bomb.
To be fair if this was Obama’s economic plan you would need something along the lines of “lather, rinse, repeat”. With an emphasis on the “repeat”.
“…except vacation comes first.” And second, thrid, adn fourth. With a few rounds of golf in between.
What would the Obama equivalent be:
1. Wait for disaster that you can act like you care about
2. Blame anyone and everyone else for the problems while doing nothing yourself
3. Vacation – preferably in the most embarrassing way humanly possible
Ideally, that embarrassing way will include things like wearing horrifically inappropriate outfits which seemingly mock the disaster you are supposedly so concerned with. You know, like this
Obama’s economic plan can be summarized as a perpetual fiscal crisis. However, to be fair, the crisis has been progressive.
Chinese firm surpasses Exxon in oil production
A lot of people seem to believe that economic development is a product of magic. They seem to believe that wealth is a reflection of something other than the product of individual labor. That it can be redistributed at will without consequence. These people would like to eat their cake and have it too. Enjoy your physical, material, and ego instant gratification while it lasts.
Obama’s always had a 4 step plan.
1) Pass Blame
2) Take Credit
3) Blow Smoke
4) Play Golf
