Meh. There's a whole lot I don't agree with W on, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Much as it pains me to say it... I actually agree with George W. on something.

Nice.
 
2010-01-18 11:17:22 AM  
Yep. I kinda like the guy now that he doesn't have any power anymore. I like that he isn't out there mudslinging along with dick.

GW doesn't even look like he showered for this.

This.

And its really too bad that Bush is incapable of giving Rush the good verbal beatdown he needs.

Yeah, seriously. I guess he figures that Limbaugh can't make him apologize.
 
2010-01-18 11:23:06 AM  
I disagree with the actions of the Bush administration on many things. I fully support what he has done here, and I support his remarks.
 
2010-01-18 11:24:30 AM  
I don't really see where he told Limbaugh to STFU.
 
2010-01-18 11:30:00 AM  
Can't wait for Rush to start calling Dubya a liberal now.

Seriously, when even George W. farking Bush calls you a douchebag, you know you're a douchebag.

It looks like Obama and Clinton are standing over Bush saying, "Go on. Read it. Read it to everyone."
 
2010-01-18 11:47:36 AM  
Kudos. My GW Bush rating just went up to 10%.

wanna bet Limbaugh ignores the slap down?
 
2010-01-18 11:54:08 AM  

ne2d: I don't really see where he told Limbaugh to STFU.


This, first of all. He said he didn't know what Obama's critics were talking about. That sounds more like cluelessness than condemnation to me.

I'm over it now: ....and Fark heads asplode over the Hero tag for bbbbbBush.


Hardly. If he had actually condemned Limbaugh's remarks, I'd agree with him, but think the Hero tag was a bit of an overstatement. The fact that he didn't, really, just makes it seem a little extra dumb.

Either way, I don't think anyone's freaking out about it, chief. I'm certainly not.
 
2010-01-18 11:54:09 AM  

ne2d: I don't really see where he told Limbaugh to STFU.


He didn't, but made it obvious that he disagrees with Rush. I didn't expect any Republican to speak out against Rush, even in this passive way, so I'm happy to see one that did. Organizing relief for Haiti is no more political than it was when we begged Myanamar to let us help or when Bush asked his father & Bill Clinton to help organize relief efforts to Malaysia & Thailand.

well this just further bolsters my claim that gwb was really a RINO liberal and all of his failed economic policies are to be blamed on liberal republican ideology. we should all remember this in the upcoming elections so that we can elect leaders that will actually implement true conservative economic and social policies.

And there you have it. Delusions at work. Let me guess, this is what Rush is saying today?

Exactly this.

Also, I can't find it and don't remember what I was watching, and I'll admit I may have dreamed it, but I'd swear I saw Clinton completely side-step the very same issue during one of the many interviews.

When you're an ex-President of the political party he shills for, you don't have to use a rhetorical sledghammer, especially if you already just appeared in the Rose Garden and spoke to the nation about it. President George W. Bush. Classier than his supporters.

if you say so. i'd suggest that it's more delusional to ignore bush's policy of government expansion and economic bailouts and give-aways that were basically straight from pelosi's playbook. it's just icing on the cake that he would be parroting liberal talking points about sending aid to haiti what is an absolutely obvious ploy to gain political capital.

Somacandra: President George W. Bush. Classier than his supporters.


It pains me to say this but, if W's comment was intended as it's portrayed, then I agree with him fully and it's nice to see him becoming a human being.

Still think he was a terrible president, though.

The Fourth Karamazov: I disagree with the actions of the Bush administration on many things. I fully support what he has done here, and I support his remarks.


I'm not going to criticize this, but it's hardly remarkable. Former Presidents of rival parties uniting for a message of goodwill during a humanitarian crisis is pretty standard.
 
2010-01-18 12:22:21 PM  
Bush really improved my opinion of him by saying what he said. Now let's see some Republican who needs to get re-elected show a spine and tell Rush to go to hell.

brigid_fitch: He didn't, but made it obvious that he disagrees with Rush. I didn't expect any Republican to speak out against Rush, even in this passive way, so I'm happy to see one that did.


Naturally no Republican will stand up to him. Naturally they will also not recognize that what Rush is saying today (donating to private charity = BAD, LIBERAL, COMMUNIST) is the polar opposite of what Rush and other neoconservatives have been saying for the last 30 years (private charity = GOOD, government aid = BAD, LIBERAL, COMMUNIST).

This is, I think, one of the problems fundamental to modern Republican ideology that Democrats/progressives simply do not have an effective strategy to overcome. Simply put, they don't determine "correct" and "wrong" by whether what they're saying agrees with facts or logic; if Rush repeats it and no Republican stands up to him, than it is correct. It doesn't matter if "it" is the direct opposite of what Rush was saying last year or last month. It doesn't matter if "it" agrees with or contradicts any facts in evidence. If he says it, it's true, and if it's true it's because he said it, even if it's not what he said yesterday and what he will say tomorrow.

won't happen. Rush won't LET it happen. He'll destroy anyone who steps up and tells him to STFU. Or he'll try to anyway.

So then what, the entire Republican party was just deluded for the last 8 years when Bush was the champion of conservatism? I mean, if you say so...

I can't believe anyone fell for the first one, but this one... just might get some bites.

Anyway, what Rush Limbaugh says or doesn't say usually doesn't concern me, but the fact that he may actually be discouraging people from helping victims of a disaster, when they may have otherwise helped, pisses me off a little.

i'm just warming up the crowd before the professionals get here. if i had time i'd love to go back into rush's archives and see what he was saying after the tsunami a few years back.

I'm still trying to figure out how this fatass, pill-popping, racist lunatic still has an audience. On top of that, there aren't any elcected Republicans willing to stand up to him. I know he has a lot of listeners, but certainly not anywhere near even 10% of the population. Can't they see that normal people don't think his way?

Not exactly a direct defense of Obama and refutation of Rush specifically, but it will do. He's essentially saying, "Consider and appreciate the challenges.

i'm not even sure Limbaugh's numbers are all that high. He doesn't release his arbitron data to the public.

One thing is for sure - if Brown takes the election, Limbaugh will be crowing about it for the rest of the year.
