Some people may think George W. Bush is the Democratic Party’s favorite punching bag. But the fact is President Bush has been out of office for over four years now, thank God! And he’s looking pretty good compared with today’s GOP. So he’s not as much fun to take shots at and make fun of, except when old videos appear about his presidency and some of the less intelligent things that he said. During that long and felt like indefinite presidency with one disaster after another, like going to war on bogus intelligence.
And President Bush trying to change the reasons that we went to war and certain weapons of mass distraction, I mean destruction weren’t found shortly after the invasion. Or Hurricane Katrina, the financial and economic meltdown of 2008. I could go on but there’s actually something else I would like to talk about. To come up with the most outrageous statements that Michelle Bachmann has ever made even in her little over six years of service in the U.S. House of Representatives. Is a tall order.
This is a little difficult for me because that’s like coming up with best plays that Larry Bird ever made playing basketball. Or the best passes that Joe Montana ever thrown, or the best home runs that Hank Aron ever hit and so-fourth. Also I don’t live in Representative Bachmann’s House district or state, thank God, otherwise I would’ve moved or been kicked out of there, whatever came first. And I’m not in Congress myself so what I hear about her is from the national media or from blogs. But I can limit it two or three as someone who follows politics closely and has big annoyance when it comes to political hypocrisy and contradiction.
When Representative Bachmann announced for President in the summer of 2011, as I and every other blogger and comedian were celebrating about all the new material that was going to come our way free of charge and at her expense coming from Michelle herself, she announced she was in favor of two constitutional amendments. One was to outlaw pornography and the other was to outlaw same-sex marriage both at the federal level. Keep in mind this coming from someone who calls herself a constitutional conservative.
Also keep in mind this coming from someone who knows as much about conservatism and the U.S. Constitution as a fish knows about Wall Street. During her fourth month presidential campaign she also came out against big government. Well that makes sense because that’s an issue she knows a lot of about with all of her positions in support of big government. Michelle has a habit of bashing things she’s in love with, well take big government to use as an example. And claiming to love and support things that she says she loves. Take well the U.S. Constitution to use as an example.
What if I were a Republican today, first of all I would ask myself why am I a Republican today and if I could answer that question and I was still a Republican, I would want George W. Bush back leading the GOP. And prey that he learned something from all of his dumb mistakes as President and didn’t repeat them. Because GWB looks like a God compared with today’s GOP and Michelle Bachmann represents the intelligence and information gap in the Republican Party. And why they can’t win elections they are supposed to win easily going in.
