At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Is barack hussein obama brilliant?

Since barack hussein obama has pledged that anything that went wrong during his regime would be the fault of George W. Bush - let's take a walk back over the last sixteen long months of obama rule.

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent tens of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved? 

If George W. Bush bribed a retired US Admiral not to run against an incumbent he wanted in office, would you have been offended?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky? 

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, would you have said that he is just plain clueless.

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas, would you have thought he was a self important, conceded, and egotistical horse's ass.

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment? 

If George W. Bush completely ignored the worst environmental disaster in American history simply because the people impacted were not high propensity Republican Party voters - and he therefore didn't care what happened to them or their states - how would you have felt about him?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potato as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11 ?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved? 

If George W. Bush had instituted a system whereby you could report "fishy behavior" on the part of your neighbors to the White House where that information would be kept on file for whatever future use the government might find for it, how would you have reacted?

If George W. Bush and his administration had flaunted US Law to the extent that a US State (Arizona) had to take matters into their own hands to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into their neighborhoods, would you have approved?

Don't worry. barack hussein obama has done all this in just a bit over one year-- so you have three years to come up with an answer. And there is one thing you can be assured of. The 'daily outrages' by the obama regime will continue.

Let us hope that by this time next year
With a less compliant Congress in place
Obama can't do things quite as outrageous
As those that have already taken place.

It amazes me how ANYONE can still support him ... unless of course they are completely politically stupid.

Hoping the Blind Will See said...

Don't forget these:

If GWB had made the statement that he didn't have all the facts but it appears the Cambridge police acted stupidly, would you have cried out how ignorant he was?

If GWB had callously informed half of America to "get out of the way so I can clean up your mess" would you have tolerated it?

If GWB had as manyb terrorist attempts on Ameica in 15 months as Obama has, would you cry that he didn't have the security of America as a top priority?

If GWB had attempted to take over 1/6th of the economy through a healthcare initiative, and another huge chunk through Cap & Trade would you have allowed it without a whimper?

If GWB confiscated millions of acres of land in western USA for unspecified reasons, would you think the media would be all over it?

Yes my friends, this is one slick and unsavory character. The sooner he is ousted from office the better. The sooner we can put people into congress, from both sides of the aisle, who will support constitutional law, not the law of "compassion and feel good", the better we will all be.

Let's just hope we can hold on that long....

It is now virtually impossible for any President to look, act, or sound stately or impressive. Never happen. The wedia is out there and every flub, gaffe and slip-up is exagerrated a millionfold on the 24/7 interwebs.

Even the lamestream media has to follow suit. How on earth can they grab eyeballs without lowering the bar for the great unwashed huddled masses...who cling to their cognitive dissonance and archaic notions aboot how the world should work.

You would have to be a complete narcissist to even consider a political life...which is why the best and the brightest will never run for office.

The brilliant thing he did was pick Rahm Emanuel.or was it that Rahm picked Obama? Either way, will he one day thrown Rahm under the bus too?

Of course your list is not comprehensive, that would require another few single spaced pages.

For example:

IF George W. Bush had promised to receive public campaign funds, then flip flopped on that promise, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush has pronounced the word 'corps' as 'corpse', would you have destroyed his credibility like Dan Quayle's because of his 'potato' gaffe?

Fredd, excellent. But I can't take credit for this piece. LL is the author.

>Is barack hussein obama brilliant?

No. I'm starting to think that he might even be as stupid as Al Gore. Chairman BaO is typical of the educated moron class.
