Default But Bush Did It!

I laugh every time I hear that...

Not because it's NOT true (which it is), but because of the redirection Obama supporters want the public to believe...

Unlike Bush43, Obama ran on a campaign of NOT being the "same old" politician like Bush...

He said he REJECTED Bush policies...

He said he REJECTED overreaching surveillance...

He said he REJECTED federal intrusion of privacy...

UNLIKE Bush, Obama lied through his teeth...and some still love him for it...

Just like not letting lobbyists deal with this administration (which was a lie two days into his presidency), this NSA surveillance is something that Captain Unicorn said he would NEVER do....Bush never said that...

So pretend that President Rainbows is above us lowly serfs and everything he wants his image to be is real...

Bush was a politician...Obama's a politician who won on a platform of "I'm anything but a politician!!!!!!!!"...

Suckers!...

I trust ya, but I'm gonna spy on ya.


Look, You think people who are okay with Obama are suckers, but you don't bother to realize that they're just as big a suckers as those who voted for Bush.


And Bush didn't run on being an outsider and different than Washington and go in and do the same Washington BS?!

We would call that selective memory.

George W. Bush 2000 Campaign Ad - YouTube

Not even close...

You ask 100 Bush supporters if they voted for Bush because he was different than every other politician, you'd get crickets...Ask the same to 100 Obama supporters and my guess is you'll get over 90 screaming "Yes!!!!!!"...

Being an outsider to Washington is VERY different from claiming you're not a politician like everyone else...

You can roll off a list of VERY political "outsiders to Washington"....Bloomberg, Jerry Brown...Chris Christie...Jan Brewer...All of these people are politicians to the hilt...Being an "outsider to Washington" has nothing to do with not being political...

But Obama ran on a platform of TRANSCENDING politics...And now we see he's not only a politician's politician, but he's the master of it...

Actually, you would get them screaming "Yes we can!!!"

That's if they weren't screaming about their Obamaphones.

I'm confused.
Can you keep your story straight on why we supposedly voted for Obama?

I mean, I've been told that I voted for Obama cause he gives benefits.
I've been told that I voted for Obama cause he's black.
I've been told that I voted for Obama cause I worship him.

Obviously, you know better than the actual Obama voters why we voted for him, but it's just confusing for you to keep changing your story...

Incidentally, to make sure that we're consistent for our left-wing explanation for why the right voted against Obama, it's because you guys are racist.

Just out of curiosity, do you see anybody denying that Obama's a politician?
