At the unveiling ceremony of his official portrait at the White House today, former President George W. Bush got off some great one-liners!

Click on the link and watch the clip. Compared to the bitter socialist occupying the WH now, it's hard not to miss him.

The best line was when George W. asked Michelle to grab HIS portrait if the WH were to ever catch fire again. LOL

Agreed, it’s nice to see a president with a sense of humor, who seems like a human being.

Heard some of the clips from both on Rush. Either Rush was having some fun with us or Obama's comments were despicable beyond redemption.
Could be that the tapes were doctored, but you can't put it past Obama to make a campaign attack speech at an ostensibly non-political event.

True. I’ve often remarked to my wife that another thing I consider in a politician is “would I want him as a next-door neighbor”. Bush and Cheney can afford a higher-dollar area, but they’d be great neighbors.

Nice clip. Also happened to notice off to the right on that page a poll for Myth’s VP pick...happened to take a look to see if Palin was on that list; she was not. Just an observation for what it’s worth.

He absolutely DID attack President Bush by accusing him of handing off a faield economy- This was Pre3sident Bush’s day- it was suppsoed to be abotu President Bush m,and our current ‘president’ (and I use the term loosely) couldn’t even be gracious enough to let President Bush have his day i nthe sun- o had to piss aqll over President Bush’s parade today- o is a vindictive whiny chicago thug- and hwat he did to President Bush today was as low as I have ever seen him get- and beleive me, I’ve seen him go pretty low- it was despicable

Its thanks to the failure and disgrace that is Dubya that we have a bitter socialist in office now. TARP anyone? Selective memories of the Bush bot is in overdrive today.

People can say what they want about Dubya...but...he’s a true gentleman, a classy MAN, a fine, decent human being, and an American.

For myself, I don’t know that I could be that classy standing up there with Odumbo, knowing what he did to my country. I’ll leave it at that because I can feel the bile rising...

God bless ya, Dubya; and even though I had some major policy disagreements with him, I never, EVER doubted that he was an American first, and tried to do the right thing for his country.

Thanks for posting this, Fabrizio.

I disagree with you. The media portrayed Bush as awful the day he went into the office non stop harping non stop and they lied about him as well. I actually believe the economic crisis was invented to get Obama into office. MCcain was a wimp. Yes Bush signed Tarp at the end after he was told the whole world was going to crumble if he did not act. Anyway just my opinion and yes Bush was not 100% perfect but I think there were many other things that got Obama elected. Never let a crisis go to waste.

“I think there were many other things that got Obama elected.”

What? Like the economic collapse which occurred on Dubya’s watch? How about Medicare Part D? His Amnesty proposal? No Child Left Behind? Quit distancing Bush from the the blame and responsibility for Obama that is rightfully his.

Obama made reference Thursday to the economic problems he inherited upon taking office in 2009.

“Our economy was in trouble, Americans were in pain,” he said. “But we didn’t know until later how great the financial crisis had been.”

But, Obama continued, Bush and his advisers helped make the transition of power as seamless as possible.

“President Bush understood that rescuing the economy was not a Democratic or Republican issue, it was an American one,” he said. “I’ll always be grateful.”

I’m so confused. Perhaps you and the others can explain something.

Obama now won because of Bush? Those who refused to vote for McCain have claimed he was a rino, therefore, they couldn’t vote for him. Now, it’s Bush’s fault? Or, did they not vote for McCain due to his VP pick. No, wait, so many of the non-McCain voters claim they would support Sarah Palin now. So it can’t be that, either. It was TARP! That’s it. Conservatives stayed home and refused to vote for the person they now back, Sarah Palin because of Bush’s TARP!

I get it. When in doubt, blame Bush.

Honest to God, shame on you. If you don’t see the damage done by Obama, double shame on you.

Obmma would have won no matter who was running or who preceded him. This tendency by the left and some on the right to blame bush for everything is irrational. Sure Bush had his faults but they pale in comparison to obama who proves the adage that it can always be worse.

What you see in this thread are not bushbots (whatever that is) but those who have seen things get so bad that even george bush looks pretty good now. Heck even bill or hillary would be an improvement.

Mrs. Bush is pro-sodomite marriage. Don’t know if George W. Bush is still against it. He at one time favored an amendment protecting marriage.

“Obmma would have won no matter who was running or who preceded him.”

Ever heard of a guy called Reagan? See because he wasn’t a complete schmuck failure who threw our country into a ditch like Dubya, he was followed by a selected successor.

“I’m so confused. Perhaps you and the others can explain something.Obama now won because of Bush?”

Obama won because Bush screwed this country up seven ways from Sunday. If Dumbo Dubya HADN’T been such a failure, the 2008 GOP candidate might have had a chance at election. But when you have an electorate so disgusted at Bush’s reign of error it’s hard to gain any traction even with Palin’s popularity. Take off the rose colored glasses.

I will take his “reign of error” as you call it ANYTIME.

8.2% unemployment, debt that will can NEVER repay. We are being ridiculed around the world. I thought the world was supposed to love us after electing Obama? I mean that awful John McCain couldn’t get your support, right? It was Bush’s fault!

You or ANYONE who works to elect Obama again, are just so sad. Whats in it for you? Are you going to be happy to see total socialism in our great country? What unemployment rate would make YOU happy? 10%? 15? 20? Obama’s taking us in that direction.

But, right, you couldn’t vote for that awful John McCain, It was Bush’s fault!
