The Monkey has left the White House

“”I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will execute the office of President of the United States faithfully, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The Reign of Stupid is over.  Woohoo!

  1. “W” does kind of look like a monkey, doesn’t he? And since I think monkeys are adorable.

    But stupid, he isn’t. If you don’t agree with his moves or politics, that’s fine, but to say that he’s stupid only makes you sound ignorant.

    BTW, I referenced your comment in my most recent post, and linked back to you.

  2. Mpmmmm.. if you think a stupid man could rise to the presidency, aganist soo many intelligent folks trying to get there. perhaps you should re-evaluate your thought process.
    And What is with the hate? Are you comfortable with calling another human being a “monkey”??

    • It helps if Daddy was a former president himself. It also helps that this country has very little understanding of the political process.

  3. Perhaps the same argument can be used to explain why BO was in office.
    Your weekness is in my humble opinion, demonizing anyone with whom you do not have a meeting of the minds with politically.

    Does it not bother you to refer to someone you probably have never met as a “monkey”?

    You also consinder yourself “enlightened” compared to “those that voted for the monkey” and therefore I deduce you feel qualified to be in a better position to pick their leader for them since you know better.

    Do you not think that kind of thinking is probably what gets societies in trouble?

    • After what he did to this country in the last eight years (economy in the toilet, the entire world hates us, war with two nations that we can’t get out of, and the disaster that was Katrina), I can call him a monkey if I want.
      That’s why I love this country. I can call him anything I want.

      • Yes, you certainly can. But you’re just demonstrating ignorance when you say that it’s his fault that the “economy is in the toilet,” that “the entire world hates us,” that we’re at “war with two nations that we can’t get out of,” and that Katrina was his doing.

        It is impossible for the President to have full control of the economy, but if you want to insist that the economy is a reflection of the President’s policies then you might want to reflect on the fact that we started going into recession during Bill Clinton’s tenure.

        The entire world hating us… First off, that’s not true. Second, those who hate us now hated us before; they just are making more noise.

        9/11 wasn’t a good enough reason to go to war with Aghanistan? Say what you want about Iraq, but ALL of Congress voted to go to war in Afghanistan.

        As for Katrina — are you kidding?

      • Do I blame him for the economy? Yes. Trickle-down economics didn’t work in Reagan’s time and they still don’t.
        Do I blame him for the war in Afghanistan? Yes. We had bin Laden cornered at Tora Bora eight years ago. And he’s still laughing at us!
        Do I blame him for the war in Iraq? Hell yes.
        Do I blame him for the US losing goodwill with the rest of the world? His “us vs. them” stance didn’t help.
        Do I blame him for Katrina? All I can say is “Brownie, you’re doin’ a heck of a job.”

      • You’re looking at the picture from a micro-perspective. That works for your personal world view, but it’s the macro-perspective that matters in the bigger world view.

        You can blame Bush all you want, but if you study economics, sociology, and world politics then you’ll find that your perspective is very narrow.

      • I don’t know why I got a reply in my email and it’s not here, but in response to your comment that, “the ‘big picture’ does not help those currently affected by unemployment or a lack of health gare,” —

        You’re wrong. You can’t solve the problem without looking at the big picture.

        Also – how did you get a BA in political science without studying economics? Studying the basics of how our economy works is enough to show you that it’s impossible for the President to be solely responsible for the economy. Of course, liberal professors try to disregard that fact, but if you look at the facts yourself, you can’t miss it.

        College professors are notorious for being one-sided, taking the liberal perspective. Perhaps your BA studies were colored by that bias.

  4. You mean besides my BA in social science and my graduate work in political science?
    Actually, most of my grad school classmates were even more flaming liberal than me. Moreover, the “big picture” does not help those currently affected by unemployment or a lack of health gare.
