    Stole this from Gixxer. Found it humorous and sad at the same time.

    This oughta be good:

    If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

    If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

    If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro†in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

    If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as “proof†of what a dunce he is?

    If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on “Earth Dayâ€, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?

    If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually “get†what happened on 9-11?

    If George W. Bush h ad been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

    If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

    If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again 10 times within years, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

    If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

    So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 9 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.

    I voted for him.

    Now in 2012 ill be able to vote for a conservative. Mccain was no conservative. He was a liberal impersonating a conservative.

    Those bullet points dont even need to be prefaced with Bush. It should stand on its own, any president in our past that has been elected would have been ran out of office. Oh wait never mind, the rules do not apply to President Obama because apparently we are happy with just hearing the nice pretty words instead of seeing some god damn results.

    Barack Obama also just won the Stanley Cup, and it was announced that he won the 2000 and 2004 Florida elections. This guy is just magic !

    When I heard about the Nobel Prize today I honestly thought it was a joke. And a funny one at that.
    There was widespread panic in Jersey City that day too. I know of people personally who were injured(broken bones and such). And when you turned on the TV, it was all Swine Flu. NOTHING about it. My sister said half her office took personal time for the rest of the day. People were extremely shook. And Obama gave a half ass apology like it didn't matter. Fuck him for this alone.
    Only flaw in this entire thing. We had a surplus under Clinton. The debt that Obama doubled was GW's and his alone.

    incorrect
    you are confusing budget surpluses/deficits with national debt, they are two very different things
    the last time we were DEBT FREE (ie: owed no money to anyone else around the world) was January 8, 1835 under Andrew Jackson

    in 2000 Clinton did run a comparatively small deficit of $17.91Billion, but the national debt was still $5.674178 trillion (up from $5.656270 trillion in 1999)
    so we still borrowed almost 18 billion dollars, you can not run a surplus on borrowed money
    and for what its worth Clinton's final budget which ended 9/28/2001 was $133.29 Billion in deficit
    even if you figure Bush's tax credit checks ($38 Billion) into that final Clinton budget... Clinton still left office with a budget that was $95.29 Billion in deficit, and the country was still in $5.807463 trillion of debt

    I was going to say something like that but left it for someone who could put it in better words.

    Our monetary system sucks balls. Why did we ever get rid of backing all of our money in gold anyways? Its absolutely disgusting we're in debt so deep. If I were to go in debt I couldn't buy anything and I'd have to pay it all back and then some.
