Remember when Presidents (and First Ladies) had class and loved their country?

Former President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush among many to greet Troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan at DFW airport

This man and woman, former President George W. Bush, and former first lady Laura Bush, have more class and love for our GI’s and our great country in their pinkies than Obungler and his wife have in their entire America-hating bodies.

You can tell by the reaction of the soldiers when they meet him and Laura how much these heroes appreciate Mr. and Mrs. Bush being there. Just look at the smiling faces of the troops, not to mention all those around them.

I distinctly remember President Bush and Laura greeting and talking to the enlisted Marines and Air Force Airmen and the pilots as they boarded and exited Marine One and Air Force One. Bush knew their names, and the names of their family members, and would ask how they were doing.

Next time you see that POS Obungler and his wife getting on or off Air Force One or Marine One, watch what he does.

The incompetent, conceded asshole gives his pathetic salute and walks right by without saying a word or even bothering to acknowledge that they even exist (other than his phony salute) as if they’re not worthy or important enough for him to speak to them.

But while we know all liberals hate the military, at least Bill Clinton was honest and had the balls to say he loathed them, even if it was in his college days.

We’ve read about and seen all these “Do you miss me yet?” signs with the former President’s pic on them popping up all over the country. I really do miss President Bush.

    There are a lot of people who miss the bad old days of the Bush Administration. The DNC decided to drop their ad campaign attacking Bush. I guess they didn’t really want people to ask themselves if they were better off 3 years ago…

    From an economic standpoint, the Bush years were good years for the most part. I was working so much overtime I actually turned some down on account of exhaustion. I used those funds to buy new windows, a new roof,and wall to wall carpet. The portfolio took a hit at the end of his term which I was none too happy about, but I have real, tangible benefits from his time in office.

    You don’t have to worry about that out of Emperor Barack Hussein I. He wouldn’t soil himself visiting the lowly privates that are part of the awful Imperially Aggressive War Machine that he is dismantling as fast as he can. He is better off stopping traffic in LA for a couple of hours so he can visit his people in Beverly Hills.

    All through his administration, the left and the media (but I repeat myself) tried to portray the economy as “on the edge of disaster”. It finally took the Dodd/Frank housing bubble to create the disaster that was handed off to Obama.

    GW has more class than the America-hating couple occupying the White House could ever dream of having.

    Remember he and Laura were the ones who went to El Paso after the terrorist attack at Ft Hood. I think NoBama was playing golf

    Although many (like myself) disagree with many of Bush’s initiatives, one can easily say he did more good than harm.

    His love and admiration for our troops was always, and remains authentic.

    For this, I salute him.

    Kudos, to Laura too, a fine woman.


  13. 13 | August 21, 2010 5:32 pm

    @ vagabond trader:

    Yes, very briefly on both occasions. I don’t think he mingled with the troops, though. Just visited the brass. Nothing like Bush would have done. I don’t recall him doing anything after the Fort Hood massacre. You know Bush would have gone to the funeral/memorial or whatever. Obama, not so much.

    I didn’t always agree with his politics, but I never ever ever doubted that President Bush was a man of the highest honor. He loves his country and he agonized over every decision he made and he made all of them with the best of intentions.
    And he gave up Golf

    complete contrast to this freeloader and his freeloader wife we have now.

    Thanks President Bush for all you do and still do!

    It wouldn’t even occur to zero to meet the returning troops. And certainly not, like Pres. Bush is doing here, well after he is out of office and a civilian.

    32 | August 21, 2010 6:00 pm

    Bush has been attacked for ‘looking down on’ anyone who isn’t like him. I never saw that. I don’t remember the Bush administration saying that if only people understood what they were doing, why, we’d be 100% behind them (Obamacare). I don’t remember Republicans, when they were the majority, saying ‘we have to pass this bill so we know what’s in it.’ I DO see Obama and his fellow leftists looking down on anyone who doesn’t think like they does and who didn’t attend the ‘elite’ schools.

    *Gun clinger speech on*
    I guess we’s jest too dumb tuh git what they’s talkin’ bout up thar. We’s jest too stuck to clingin’ to our guns an’ our religion to know what’s best fur us. But that’s ok. We’s got them up thar gonna take care of everythin’ for us. Barack. The Hildabeast. All them czars that Obama keeps bringin’ on. These judges that are gonna make good decisions ’cause they’re ‘wise Latina women’ instead of white men.

  35. 35 | August 21, 2010 6:13 pm

    @ chickadee:

    I blame John McCain. If he had actually ran for office instead of wanting to have a collegial, feel good contest, he might be President now. Just as had the Republicans governed as Republicans instead of Democrat-lite they might very well still hold the House and Senate. If they’d done what they were elected to do in 1994, we wouldn’t be here today with an almost collapsed economy and a Federal Debt that probably is past the point where it can ever be paid back.

    Iran broadcasts missile launch on state television
    Iran has test fired a surface-to-surface missile, according to the country’s defence minister.

    Published: 2:02PM BST 20 Aug 2010

    101 Comments

    Link to this video Ahmad Vahidi’s announcement comes a day before Iran is scheduled to launch its Russian-built first nuclear power plant in the southern port city of Bushehr.

    Television images showed the sand coloured Qiam (Rising) blasting into the air from a desert terrain, amid chants of “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest).

    The words “Ya Mahdi” were written on the side of the missile, referring to Imam Mahdi, one of the 12 imams of Shiite Islam, who disappeared as a boy and whom the faithful believe will return one day to bring redemption to mankind.

    Yeah, there’s not Iranian threat. The Obama Administration says so! :roll:

    I read that the POS Obungler doesn’t even get down to the Oval office until 9-9:30 every morning, whereas President Bush was in bed by 9PM at the latest and down in the Oval Office for his daily security briefings at 6AM sharp every morning, and expected all his aides to be there.
    I guess that’s because Bush didn’t have a White House party about once every three days like the swine who currently reside there do, eating lobster tails like M&M’s and $100 a pound Kobe beef.

    Those two assholes really do think they’re royalty.

    I expect that we will have some kind of nuclear action before the economic collapse that I believe is coming in the early 2020s. We are in an awful position, mostly thanks to the Democrats. I think Bush would have taken care of the Iranians if the Democrats had let politics stop at the water’s edge and done what was right. The CIA fucks who fabricated the report saying the Iranians weren’t seeking nuclear weapons should go to jail. Now there is nothing to do but wait for the sky to fall.

    That is a different issue. I certainly didn’t believe it. I doubt that Bush or most of his administration did either. But the Democrats in Congress saw what they wanted to hear, and that was all the evidence they needed. When that report came out, and chance that the Bush Administration would be able to take pre-emptive action against Iran evaporated. That will eventually cost many, many lives.

    Iranian missile tested is not the threatened 3 stage, but a variation of the current short range missile with a top range of 160 miles. And it looks huge. Which means it is rather primitive. Secondly, there was no way to tell from the video if the targeting was accomplished. The test range was extraordinarily short, IMHO. And the warhead did burst on impact, not via a far proximity fuse. Let us say I am not in a panic. This is a lot of industrial effort to make something that is circa WWII.

    they are Democrats. They’ve done that on so many issues that I’ve lost count. When you own the Media, you can get away with a lot. Why anybody votes for a Democrat I do not know.

    @ pat:

    True, but although that range doesn’t threaten us, or even Israel, from Iranian territory, it’s well within striking range of Tel Aviv from anywhere in Lebanon.

    And primitive or not, if it lands on your apartment complex, it’s still going to ruin your day.

    Holy shirt.

    In an unprecedented move within the Department of Homeland Security, the special agents responsible for enforcing our nation’s immigration laws issued an exhaustive, scathing letter simply titled “VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN ICE DIRECTOR JOHN MORTON AND ODPP ASSISTANT DIRECTOR PHYLLIS COVEN” on June 11, 2010. The letter, acquired through sources, provides a litany of examples of how ICE’s mission is being skewed towards supporting an unflinching goal of amnesty by refusing to allow agents to do their job; allowing criminal aliens to roam free; depleting resources for key enforcement initiatives that preceded this administration; and misrepresenting facts and programs, demeaning the extent of the criminal alien problem and geared to support amnesty.

    [snip]

    On June 11, 2010, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council and its constituent local representatives from around the nation, acting on behalf of approximately 7,000 ICE officers and employees from the ICE Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), cast a unanimous “Vote of No Confidence” in the Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), John Morton, and the Assistant Director of the ICE Office of Detention Policy and Planning, (ODPP), Phyllis Coven

    But this missile is not readily transportable. It requires a tractor trailer. For each one. NB. I think this is more internal propaganda and more likely a prototype anti-fleet weapon.

    Yup.

    The V-1s and V-2s the Nazis launched in WWII were primitive, too, but I don’t think that knowledge was much comfort to the people in London at the time…

    Hezbollah is the only real delivery system the Iranians need. They can take a nuclear truck-bomb anywhere in the world. I just think that it goes towards proving the hostile mind-set of the Iranians in that they chose to commerate fueling their reactor by launching a missile, and the particular drama (allahu Ackbar, and such) they chose to accompany it. If that didn’t trouble you, perhaps this will:

    US: Iran’s Nuclear Plant ‘Safe,’ But Weapon Could be a Year Away

    by David Lev
    Follow Israel news on and .

    Iran reiterated Saturday that an attack against its Busheher nuclear plant would be considered an “international crime,” now that it has become operational. Iran celebrated the loading of enriched uranium into the reactor for the first time Saturday.
    President Obama’s top adviser on nuclear issues said ‘We think that they have roughly a year dash time. A year is a very long period of time.’

    Meanwhile, the United States sought to reassure Israel and other Middle Eastern countries, saying that it posed “no threat” to anyone’s security. “We recognize that the Bushehr reactor is designed to provide civilian nuclear power and do not view it as a proliferation risk,” Darby Holladay of the U.S. State Department told news agencies. And in fact, he said, the U.S. welcomed Russia’s involvement in Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s reactor, he said, “is under IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) safeguards and Russia is providing the needed fuel and taking back the spent nuclear fuel, which would be the principal source of proliferation concerns.”

    However, while the threat is not immediate, Israel was not out of the woods – with Obama administration officials saying that Iran could, if it wanted to, develop nuclear weapons in about 12 months, perhaps a bit more.

    Yes, that is from the same Obama Adminstration that says there is no threat. 12 months. What is it, really? I’d say no one but the Iranians know. The best reason we have to think that they don’t already have nuclear weapons is that they haven’t used them. Yet.

    @ waldensianspirit:
    And that is why they put the wing on top.

    Little known fact: the 747 grew out of the C-5 program. Boeing proposed a design similar to the one Lockheed eventually won the contract with. Having done all of this design work, Boeing decided to move the wing down, and add windows, and the 747 was born.

    There’s a reason why the 747 cockpit is on the second floor, just like the C-5: one of the design requirements was an elevated cockpit. The air force people were afraid that if a tank shifted forward in the air, it would crush the crew. Look at pictures of the 747 and C-5 from the front; they both have the cockpit on top. Even the A-380 doesn’t do that.

    Re; Iranian nukes. Obviously the mullahs shouldn’t have them.
    But the civil situation in Iran is unstable. Taking advantage of that may be a better option than a military intervention, given that their weapons and delivery systems are still few and rudimentary. Just a thought.

    I didn’t say they were good roads, especially given how many of them probably have bomb craters in them from the IDF.

    I was just pointing out that the fact that a missile requires a tractor-trailer to move doesn’t mean you couldn’t get one to Beirut.

    One, the C-17s engines (like the rest of the plane) are designed for rough field use (unlike those of an Airbus); and two, there’s a difference between ordinary sand and volcanic ash. The ash turns into a glass-like substance under the heat and pressure inside a jet engine, and builds up inside.
