The September 9th Rasmussen poll indicates Obongolo's approval rating continues to plummet. Only 23% of Americans strongly believe he's doing a good job while 47% strongly believe he's doing a bad job. Thats an approval rating of minus 24%. As I previously posted, Obongolo's approval rating before he leaves will be lower then George Bush. He's well on his way to fulfill that prediction. Minus 24% is with the backing of the NAACP, Acorn, SEIU, labor unions such as the UAW. He's been totally exposed as a FRAUD.

While I don't dispute the content, I find the caustic manipulation of the President's name to be a junior high attempt at humor, and a poorly done one at that. Seriously...his real name is the one we want to remember after he serves his one term.

FORT WORTH — Some people are criticizing President Barack Obama's handling of the economy, but George W. Bush will not be one of them, ...
"I don't think it's befitting the office of the presidency to go out and be criticizing my successor," he said. "I didn't like it when some of my predecessors — a predecessor — criticized me."




Say what you want about him, Roger, et al but that's a lot classier than the whining from the other side.

Very respectable thing to say. I would expect nothing less than that from W. I wonder what the finger pointer in chief would do if the shoe was on the other foot.:rolleyes:

Really how about Bush blaming Clinton.

Bush blames Clinton's Mideast summit for current disaster (?!)


The audacity of that Texas truckdriver and White House burglar George W. Bush continues to amaze. On British television, Bush blamed Clinton for the disaster in the Middle East. This is too good! We must let the man's words speak for themselves (as reported by the Associated Press on "Yahoo News" (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20020406/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush_clinton_4)) :
"It wasn't all that long ago where a summit was called and nothing happened, and as a result we had significant intefadeh in the area," Bush said.
This is obviously the schoolboy president's way of trying to divert attention away from his own inaction during the first year of his presidency while the Israeli-Palestinian situation degenerated into the savagery we are now seeing.
Here's how Bush explains it: "The problem is, the American president, when he calls a summit, better get it right. If a summit fails, if the president ... lays it out there and nothing happens, generally the ... follow-up is worse than the status quo." This then explains clearly his policy of doing nothing at all. According to this logic, trying only makes things worse. Obviously the chance of a summit failing is high in such an incendiary situation as the one between Israel and the Palestinians. Bush neglected to explain why attempting to help negotiate a settlement would make things worse. Bush's neglect of the entire situation - or his encouragement of the bloodthirsty instincts of Sharon -- has certainly not helped.


Or this

Bush says he inherited recession
Bush, Cheney take advantage of revised GDP data to say economy a mess when they took office.

George W. Bush, retreating to familiar ground, has blamed the Clinton administration for North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. But the official who brokered the Clinton-era deal with North Korea called the idea “ludicrous,” and defended his efforts (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/11/AR2006101101793.html)

Uh Roger, what part of the phrase " criticizing my successor" didn't you understand?

I was referring to the comments and actions of those Democratic former Presidents that undermined PGWB's policies/positions and interfered with then current events.

Actually I have never heard of a former President criticizing his successor ever. OOps I spoke too soon, I take that back.

ERIE, Pa.| Former President George W. Bush fired a salvo at President Obama on Wednesday, asserting his administration's interrogation policies were within the law, declaring the private sector -- not government -- will fix the economy and rejecting the nationalization of health care.
"I know it's going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we're in," the former president said to applause from members of a local business group. "You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money."
Repeatedly in his hourlong speech and question-and-answer session, Mr. Bush said he would not directly criticize the new president, who has moved to take over financial institutions and several large corporations. Several times, however, he took direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his own during eight years in office.

From the article you link to -

Repeatedly in his hourlong speech and question-and-answer session, Mr. Bush said he would not directly criticize the new president,...however, he took direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his own during eight years in office.

On Guantanamo, ..., the former president was diplomatic. "I told you I'm not going to criticize my successor," he said.

Mr. Bush did not directly address Mr. Obama's response to the election in Iran,

Mr. Bush returned again and again to the economy, and sought to defend his own actions after the financial meltdown in the waning days of his second term -- Mr. Obama repeatedly has said he inherited that mess.

Asked by the evening emcee at the 104th annual Manufacturer and Business Association meetingif he finds the new president's policies "socialist," Mr. Bush started -- then stopped.
"I hear a lot of those words, but it depends on --" he said, breaking off. He later offered a more diplomatic assessment: "We'll see."

Compare those with Carter's critical statements and visits to countries that oppose US interests during the Bush Admin. Not even close..

"Several times, however, he took direct aim at Obama policies as he defended his own during eight years in office"? I can't resist. You call that criticizing the current president?? restating your own policies and defending them when attacked is criticizing the president?? What a joke.

I'm just wondering who would show up to listen to Mr. Bush discuss the economy. :confused:

What next? Joseph Hazelwood talking about navigation?

funny - obama blames bush daily, and the libs have to dig deep to find one instance where W blamed clinton

but you guys arent listening!!!!!!!!! BUZZ will tell you!!! the reason obamas ratings are so low is because too many WAYYYYY leftists vote against him because his tactics dont go far enough, so it gives a false illusion that he is not liked when these same people love him more than sarah....or something like that.

however, IF he were to move farther left - even WAYYYY farther left, then BUZZ says that the more centrist obama fans will stay there. so in other words, the far lefts wont bend now, but the centrists will bend later. typical you-know-what.

so in other words, the manipulation of data only works one way - and that is whatever way makes the dems look better...:barf:

i'll bite here, because you have ZERO knowledge in this realm.

hazelwood has more knowledge of navigating the worlds oceans than you do even navigating your own personal area of which you have professional domain.

i have very close connections to this man, and know exactly what happened on that night. even discussed it in detail in the last week. VERY interesting story.....

its like you had your best nurse do a procedure on a guys arse to prep him for your later very expertise procedure, but she was not as good as your company said she was and she hollowed the guy out - and who gets blamed?? YOU - because you trusted the expertise your company claimed she had.


so if that were the case to me the joke should be:

what next?? dnf777 (because you wont reveal your fullname) talking about safe proctor exams????


i'll take my chances with hazelwood regards....

I deleted my other reply. Not worth the time.

I'll just say, you insult my professionalism with an obvious total lack of any knowledge of what I do or how we do it, and you defend a drunk captain of a supertanker in one post.

You are truly amazing.

(your rant makes no sense anyway. Must be hanging out with Joe before posting?)

just trying to put it in terms you could understand, dear boy, showing how an insubordinate can ruin your day no matter how competent you are. geeeze you are sensitive.

hazelwood was not on the bridge at the time of the accident. he placed the ship in the command of a licensed third mate. once out of harbor pilot waters, the licensed mate should be able to navigate that area blindfolded. any AB or heck even myself as a USCG licensed ordinary seaman could have done it. they left the shipping lanes briefly to avoid icebergs, then it was a simply manuever to return to the designated lanes, but the 3rd mate Greg Cousins screed up, not paying attention. Blighs reef is very prominently marked on all charts.

the third mate screwed up and the caca rolls uphill. the buck stops at the captain.

being drunk had no bearing on the cause of that accident. a neglectful 3rd mate is all it took. once free of the harbor pilot, a ship is navigated by the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st mates in 8-hr shifts with the overall supervision of the captain. like a head coach who lets the OC call the plays, the coach still gets the credit and the blame.

Silly me. I thought the captain of a ship was ultimately responsible for its safe operation, and that he should NOT, even if not at the helm, be drunk while ultimately responsible for his ship. Ah, its easier to pass the buck and pop the top. Especially when you have friends like you to stick up for ya! Is a couple of weeks aboard a vessel carrying over 10 million gallons of crude oil too long to go without getting in the sauce?

Have a good one.

Silly me. I thought the presidentof a countrywas ultimately responsible for its safe operation, and that he should NOT, even if not at the helm, be on vacationwhile ultimately responsible for his country. Ah, its easier to pass the buck and smack around the little white ball. Especially when you have friends like you to stick up for ya! Is a couple of months in charge of the response to a well that is leaking a few hundredmillion gallons of crude oil too long to go without playing golf or going on a date or vacation?

Have a good one.

This is just too easy to let this one go...:D
