So, just when did Homer become such a big Bush fan?
Since he has been out of office and can do no more damage. I believe everyone deserves a second chance.

Now just answer the fcking question:

Good under Bush, bad under Obama?

What Arab country are you trying to describe here?

By the way, the only "war" on the unemployed is to make them get off their lazy asses and get a job. You're right. It just might take a war to do that.

There are no poor people in the United States.
A poor person doesn't have a hundred hours of tatoo work on them.
A poor person doesn't have the money to buy booze, drugs, stolen guns, etc., etc., etc.
A poor person doesn't have a mobile phone.

And, billion dollar drug cartels don't sell drugs in poor neighborhoods because -- you might need to write this down, idiot -- there isn't any money in poor neighborhoods.

Fuck the so-called poor. Get a fucking job... or starve.

President Dilbert

Clinton, another leftist "success story," was just as much a failure.

His lying was so ubiquitous that leftists actually began to opine about the virtue in society of lying.

Clinton repeatedly promised the people of Arkansas that he would not run for president, yet he did.

He managed to be disbarred for lying in federal court (while he was president!), and Clinton angrily turned to news cameras and told the American people that he did not have sex with Monica Lewinsky.

Now we have in the White House the logical successor to FDR, JFK, and Slick Willie Clinton:

Only now has Obama finally presented a real budget, which he was required by law to do years ago.

He still has no real plan to deal with the very dire threat of a crazy nuclear North Korea or a viciously anti-Semitic nuclear Iran.

Even his "policy" of stimulus spending is a HEADLESS CHICKEN: Obama honestly seems to believe that simply government spending money helps the economy.

The real Obama is profoundly unserious. His wife appears in gossip magazines or gives advice, as she did in February, about how to diet...

while Obama opines about serious issues, like when he projected last month who would be the NCAA Four Final basketball teams.

Obama seems almost obsessed with the vacuous, the vapid, and the venal.

OBAMA IS THE DILBERT PRESIDENT: the meaningless meanderer in national life, the automaton who cannot function without a teleprompter.

Barack Hussein Obama is an empty suit, but he grew up idolizing the other empty suits which the left has placed in the White House. In fairness, the RINO presidents from Nixon and Ford to Bush and Bush have been little better than empty suits.

Why, in 2004, after he had been out of office for 15 years and out of public sight almost as long, did millions of Americans wait long hours for a last chance to pass by the body of Ronald Reagan for a few brief moments?

Because these Americans knew what the media flacks who fawn over Obama today do not know: EMPTY SUITS CANNOT LEAD.

Bush and the “Objective Historians”

George W. Bush made a curious comment on how his presidency will be judged:

I won’t be around, because it will take a while for the objective historians to show up [bold mine-DL].

I’m not sure that there are ever any entirely objective historians, so it may take a very long time for them to appear on the scene. What I assume Bush means here is that he expects that there will be more historians in the future that aren’t interested in criticizing his record as harshly as his contemporaries have done. That may be true. However, I suspect that Bush’s presidency will tend to look worse as the years go by. There will be fewer people in every generation inclined to defend his genuinely awful record, and there will probably be a clearer picture of the consequences of Bush’s failures in another twenty or thirty years than we have now. Contemporary pro-Bush revisionism is a blatantly partisan and ideological exercise carried out by those that supported Bush or worked for his administration, but in the future there will be very few people interested in taking up the cause of rehabilitating his reputation. Future historians may not be more “fair” in their assessment of Bush’s legacy than his contemporaries, since the bad reputations of leaders perceived as failures usually don’t change or improve over time.

It’s also strange to think that “history” judges the actions of political leaders more fairly than their contemporaries when almost all of the sources that future historians will be consulting have been created by contemporaries. An unbiased future historian is just as likely to discount pro-Bush accounts of this period as self-justifying propaganda as he is to reject hyperbolic criticisms of the Bush presidency. That will leave the facts of what the Bush administration did during its eight years in power, and on the whole the evidence shows a record of bad judgment, mismanagement, incompetence, and failure. It’s impossible to know what the U.S. will look like in a century or two from now, but it seems unlikely that it will be a country that is more sympathetic to Bush’s preoccupations and more understanding of Bush’s decisions than we are.

Yes, in 2001 it was 90%, after 9/11, by 2008 it was 25%, was it any/much higher when he left office?

I wonder what happened from 2001 to 2008 for his approval to drop 65 points? Poor leadership? Bad policies? Homer ponders.

Not to mention the electrified showers they installed for our troops.

No wonder Bush surrendered to Al Maliki.
You may want to use the correct terminology... it may help you appear as if you actually know something about what comes out of your ignorant mouth.

Yep, Rand Paul advertises that he is "Board Certified" in an obviously attempt to dupe people. Yet he is not Board certified by the official board. Nope., He is certified by the "Rand Paul Board", the one he made up.
This is how Freakin dishonest this weasel is.
Galt would go to Paul because weasels think alike.
And now the whole story

"In 1995, Paul passed the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) boards on his first attempt and earned board-certification under the ABO for a decade. In 1997, to protest the ABO's decision to grandfather in older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify, Paul, along with 200 ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO). Paul's ophthalmology board is not officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties(ABMS). The NBO was incorporated in 1999, but he allowed it to be dissolved in 2000 after not filing the required paperwork with the Kentucky Secretary of State's office. Paul later recreated the board in September 2005, three months before his certification from the ABO was scheduled to expire. His ABO certification lapsed on December 31, 2005. Paul has since been certified by the NBO"
