This should be fun.

Maybe Obama started adopting the tactic everyone said he should: say stuff just so that the GOP disagrees with him.
 
2013-08-23 10:13:48 AM  
With half of the internet distracted with the devastating news that Affleck will be Batman, this is a good time to let this one slip by.

Good job, Obama.

That'd be fun. I don't see it, however.

Presidents/ex-Presidents tend to be very cordial with each other.

Well, I guess he does look a little better by comparison, for whatever that's worth

Welp, time to start impeachment proceedings.

This.  And it's actually a great thing.  Bush Sr. and Clinton teamed up and did a lot of good things in the world.  I still recall in the infancy of dubya's first term, prior to 9/11 he was taking a lot of heat and Clinton basically said "hey, you know it's a REALLY tough job, cut him some slack."

I'm sure there is a lizard-people joke in here somewhere.

nekom: cut him some slack


My line runs out somewhere between an unprovoked war, a systematic torture regimen and imploding the global economy.  Maybe I should get another roll.

Yup.  The author is right.

JFK said that he used to say Buchanan was the worst president in history, until he became president. He said no one can possibly know what it's like, even other presidents, and he decided it was no longer possible to judge Buchanan because we will never know what information and advice he was presented with.

I've read worse satire, at least he ended it early before it got stupid.

It's like that damn 3 page test that says read all instructions before beginning...then at the bottom of page three...

SecretAgentWoman: It's like that damn 3 page test that says read all instructions before beginning...then at the bottom of page three...


Yeah, my 6th grade teacher did that to us on the first day. She was hot, and one of the instructions was "look at me and smile." Of course, she smiled back knowingly, giving all the guys stiffies. Then when we saw the end, that made the embarrassment even more palpable.
Since then, I've rethought it, and who's to say that the last line is the one you should follow? Why does it necessarily override all the other instructions? It's a philosophical quandary, I'm telling you.

He's right. Cheney was an awful president.

That briefly made my mind go all DeLorean for a moment before I realized it was James, not Pat.

Rush Limbaugh said, "I always knew President Obama was a man of integrity and intelligence."  While Glenn Beck chimed in claiming, "President Obama epitomizes what it is to be a "Constitutional American."

bwhahaahahahahahaha
 
2013-08-23 11:45:01 AM  
That was poorly written for what it attempted to be, both before and after the reveal.

It was almost believable until Limbaugh and Beck praised Obama. That would never, ever happen.
 
2013-08-23 12:12:15 PM  
Is this the Lamestream liberal gotcha media I have always heard about?

What was the point of that? Is it really necessary to invent new ways to hate on Bush?

Lame.

I would check to see if the morons at Drudge already posted this, but I won't be giving them ad revenue today, no sir.
 
2013-08-23 12:19:06 PM  
See, in my writing I've noticed a very alarming pattern - people not reading the articles, but commenting on them.

TL;DR
 
2013-08-23 12:22:01 PM  
Christ, didn't I see this article a few weeks ago on Fark?

Slow news day?  Or just another Farker taken in, who didn't bother to read the entire article?
 
2013-08-23 12:23:33 PM  

Cletus C.: What was the point of that? Is it really necessary to invent new ways to hate on Bush?


It's commentary on how people don't read the actual content of articles and base all their "knowledge" on the (often misleading) headlines. It's scolding everyone ("it's happening by both conservatives and liberals") on the way we form our opinions.

But sure, it's an attack on Bush. Whatever.
 
2013-08-23 12:23:36 PM  
Yeah, soon as I saw the "remarks" from Limbaugh & especially Hannity, I checked to make sure I wasn't on the Onion and started looking for the reveal.
 
2013-08-23 12:32:36 PM  
He did a lot of great things for our economy, national security and national debt."

Well taking those in order, "our economy"...he turned a surplus into a record deficit and gave tax breaks to companies that outsourced workers. "Security"....the largest terrorist attack in our country's history happened under his watch and he used that to start two bullshiat wars and excuse him of wiping his ass with the Constitution.  National debt...see #1.  But on the bright side, he never got a blowjob from an intern and if he did, he'd have the sense to disappear her. And he never had a scandal like Benghazi, because 4 embassy employees didn't die on his watch. Oh wait, it was 13.
 
2013-08-23 12:35:43 PM  
"While this has literally happened with every single article I've ever written..."

Is that the traditional "literally" or the newfangled one that means the opposite?

That article is a bunch of Bullshiat!  Obama is a major Ahole for going against his principles.  This is patently absurd!  There is no way that George W Bush could have done anything at all that could be construed as good.  He was a moron and an utter failure and drove the US to the brink of disaster.  Not only that but their message turned the country against itself.  Now we have mindless right-wing conservatards that are unable to accept even simple facts because jesus or that RE. RE. RE. email they received.  This whole thing just pisses me off!

So now that you have read that I want to say my anger against Obama is false (Not true -- to clear up confusion in the conservatard segment).  Most the stuff about Bush and the conservatards is however spot on.
