There are some teachers of English here in Japan who used GW speeches to test their student's proof-reading abilities; they had to edit them first so they were at least comprehensible. Obama's on the other hand, are used as is for fluency practice.

A small part of me misses GW; he sure provided entertainment.

Didn't a serf bring up a teleprompter quip?

A quip for a quip.

Maybe you didn't get the memo. If someone questions or criticizes Obama, the response is "George Bush". Heck, even Obama is in on that game.

Obama uses a teleprompter, does he not? In fact, he is utterly lost without it, is he not?

Could you forward that memo to me? The one I got must be outdated. It just says the response to any criticism of Obama should be: "RACIST!"

It depends on the motivation for the criticism of Obama. If it is from people trying to get the Republican losers back in power after they spent 8 years ruining the country, they screw them! We don't need a bunch of spin, and we don't want any of the old Republicans back in power, ever.

If it is criticism that Obama deserves, on the other hand, then fine. I don't think he is doing right by the Chrysler bondholders, for example.

He uses it, yes, lost without it, I don't think so.
Reading a prepared speech, being prepared for questions from the press when everyone waits for what you say and ready to pounce.
Teleprompter or paper, it's called being prepared as best you can.

I've seen him in a group setting answering questions while walking around and winging it without a problem.
Bush? Most of the Letterman gaffes were in the same type of setting, with a screened audience.

Compared to Bush who sometimes didn't even know where he was.

Compared to Bush who needed a, phonetic teleprompter

Then the wolf was very angry indeed, and declared he would eat up the little pig, and that he would get down the chimney after him. When the little pig saw what he was about, he hung on the pot full of water, and made up a blazing fire, and, just as the wolf was coming down, took off the cover, and in fell the wolf; so the little pig put on the cover again in an instant, boiled him up, and ate him for supper, and lived happy ever afterwards.

Fox News reporting. If a fox where a wolf that is, silly me!! - looks down in shame, and blames lack of sleep.

I agree.

Don't know enough about the Chrysler part to comment, but the rest of your post is spot on.

Obama is screwing the secured bondholders, trying to give more money to the UAW than they deserve, which is why no deal was reached and Chrysler is in chapter 11.

Now that they are in chapter 11, the sale of assets to Fiat is a 2nd attempt at screwing the secured bondholders.

Got it. But this is pretty much his M.O. since walking into office. He's a command and control kind of guy. He's going to twist and shape and force things into his image of how they should be, existing contractual agreements or the rule of law be damned. I think we'll see more if it. If the economy doesn't rebound any time soon and the banks aren't lending money like they "should" watch for another round of hands on arm twisting and shaping things the way he wants them to be. Wait until the states don't do what he wants them to do with the money.

Do Bush supporters agree with everything GW did over the 8 years he was in office?

Most people never agree 100% with anybody in their entire lives; part of being human. If they did, life would be very dull... Borg-like.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Bush stated that "I have always acted with the best interests of our country in mind. I have followed my conscience and done what I thought was right." He also said that the United States must continue promoting human liberty, human rights, and human dignity around the world. One of his final lines was "We have faced danger and trial, and there's more ahead. But with the courage of our people and confidence in our ideals, this great nation will never tire, never falter and never fail."[53][54]

But torture was OK.

Heck of a job you did, Dubya.

You kinow you're probably right! I mean it's all relative. Bush took what? 6 months to go through the surplus from Clinton!

Although it did take him a long time ( 3 years ) to rack up mountains of debt and start an unnecessary war ( which of course racked up more mountains of debt ).

He really didn't do the " Let's let the market run on it's own and deregulate until later.

And only two recessions in 8 years ( although this one's kind of special ).

There's lots of alternatives other than pulling out the government credit card and spending like it's 1999.

How can someone criticize Bush for messing up the economy by spending and racking up debt and support Obama in his efforts to stimulate the economy by spending and racking up debt?

Because it's doing something about it. Even Paul Krugman says it's a step in the right direction just not enough.

I really haven't heard any solutions from the republican side that aren't the same things that got us here in the first place.

Yea, Obama is FAR worse than Bush, who lied us into a deadly war, tortured, allowed corporations to raid the U.S. Treasure, brought on the worse economy in nearly 100 years, etc. etc. etc.

Some spending stimulates the economy and some doesn't. Tax cuts to the rich... doesn't. An unecessary war... doesn't.
