Freepers fight back....with photos (DON'T click if you have a weak stomach)
Edited on Sat May-02-09 09:36 AM by Jackeens
I know, I know, I shouldn't bring Freeper madness here....but this is good. As a fightback against the media "hype" of President Obabam's first 100 days they've been posting their favourite George and Dick photos, and they're being all tearful and nostalgic about it. Lovely, lovely photos they are too.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2242536/posts

"All of April and the start of May 2009 find us still being bombarded by the media hyping up the first 100 days of President Obama with no sign of it dying down. Following the introduction to the monthly thread I will post some photos to remind us of the first few days of the first May of the George W Bush Presidency - those were the days....I am sure we will see the contrast what we see and hear from the first few months of the Bush Presidency to the Obama Presidency will make us realise even more so how much more respect and love GWB had for the office and the country and more importantly the individual citizens rather than just special interest groups as the current President does not even bother to try to hide."

Some moving comments from the thread:

"We prayed for a righteous and upright leader, and the Lord provided that - for His purposes. Now, He has permitted an unrighteous and haughty leader. This too will be for His purposes. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."

"I so miss President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Its almost like being homesick. Ofluma is THEIR president. WE dont have a president right now."

"Oh, my. Its so nice to see pictures of a REAL President, again."

"WOW !! I was so glad to see these. Thanks for the post."

"Just watched last years National Georgraphic shows about Air Force One, Marine One, and Behind the Doors of the White House. I cant tell you the emotion I felt seeing President Bush sitting on Air Force One after 9/11 and the comfort and peace just hearing his voice, knowing it came from his heart and were his true feelings and convictions. Ive been so uneasy and upset since he left office, it was almost like your dad had come home after a long trip and everything was going to be ok. This sounds really hokey, but I was shocked at the comfort I felt watching a true leader and First Lady who had the countrys best interests in their hearts and minds. You always knew where he stood, and watch you saw is what you got. Not this shell game we have going on at the White House."

"such beautiful images, youre breaking my heart...why does it all seem such a long time ago?"

"A huge thank you for this. I miss him so much and Cheney."

"Great photo of Cheney, he is a favorite of mine."

"...your collection is so beautiful I am lost for words, got a lump in my throat. It was really wonderful that you brought us this post, I will be looking forward to the next one."

:cry:

94. You are 100% correct
See: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

which references : http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2243151/posts


Some excerpts of which are:

"It is definitely time to leave the Bushes behind. No more Bushes!"

"Why do RINOs like Jeb and Romney want to ditch Pres.Reagan?"

"I dont know many people (including conservative Republicans) who would EVER vote for another Bush for President. EVER. They would stay home."

"Im beginning to believe that the Bush family runs as Republicans simply because in Texas you had to be Republican in order to win an election. They are becoming nearly as bad as McCain. One thing Jeb is right about is that we have to look forward and not backward - the Bush family has run its course. It is now time to find some REAL Republicans to fill the gap."

"Apples. Trees. Distance. You get the idea.Please, someone tell the Bushes they are over. We don't need/want you losers anymore."

"Let all conservatives finally, once and for all , rid ourselves of these Bush serpents. If it was not for Ronald Reagan the whole cursed family would be nothing but blue blood losers. Time to echo the immortal words of Cromwell to little boy bush:
You have sat for too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!


So, I'm guessing these posters didn't see the beautiful pictures....or maybe they only liked the ones of Cheney?

That and this -- "Me too. And here is my fave pic of Cheney" -- are just incomprehensible to me. Who in their right mind sincerely has a favorite picture of that criminal? What sort of girl calls herself a CHENEY chick?? Oof. I'd say this Snugs seems like a good contender for the evil, upside-down and opposite-world doppelgnger of you, posting a thread full of pictures of the worst president and vice president EVER at Freeperville, but I'd not want to taint your lovely picture threads by association! All I can say is if you ever see an English chick with a goatee, wearing a Cheneyesque smirk... RUN! :cry:

He spent eight years shooting the bird at everyone. And is still shooting it at everyone. As he sits in Dallas watching the money start to roll in.

17. Actually this picture...


Is the one of the few of him that I think reflect him as having any humanity at all.

His face conveys the horror and shock of what so many of us felt when we realized it wasn't an "accident."

However...

It was his reaction to that moment that I immediately could never forgive him for...how COULD he...JUST SIT THERE!!!!

You are the Leader of The Free Fucking World!

You are The Commander in Chief!

You can't get news like that and Just FUCKING SIT THERE! :grr:

32. You must be joking...
He has no sense of humanity at all. More than likely the look of shock, as opposed to horror, is the realization that the hijackings he expected to be told about were more than just hijackings.

The Bush girls are lovely and Laura is a pretty woman. It's the actions of Bush and Cheney that I have an issue with, not their physical appearance.

33. Looks can be deceiving...
People probably thought the same about George HW Bush and then George W Bush. Evil doesn't skip generations. It is passed from one generation to another. Passed equally among the daughters and granddaughters and the sons and grandsons.

34. I don't agree with you.
Why should Bush's daughters be responsible for their dad's actions? I also don't believe that evil is transferred from a parent to a child. There is no proof of that theory.

47. Hmmmmmm...
Maybe you're right. Samuel Bush didn't pass it on to Prescott Bush and Prescott Bush didn't pass it on to George HW Bush and George HW Bush didn't pass it on to George W Bush. Believe me, it's passed on.

And hopefully you will meet one of the Bushes no one talks about, reads about, or thinks about, the grandchildren in particular, and find out for yourself.

78. Is it?
Just look at the children of George HW Bush - not only George W but Neil and Jeb and Marvin and even Dorothy whose husband like Marvin makes his living, a nice living, off government contracts for companies that can be summed up best by the term "military-industrial complex" which involves far more than just Halliburton.

When you have time google "Samuel Bush" and then tell me that evil isn't passed from one generation to the next. Prescott Bush had brothers and I believe two sisters. As did George HW Bush. All part of the family Bush in every sense of the word. They have been a dynasty for a long time. And it isn't a nice dynasty. It rivals the most brutal of the Chinese dynasties in terms of its absolute power.

95. But I wasn't disputing the Bush family history, just...
Edited on Sun May-03-09 07:06 PM by Jackeens
...your general assertion that "evil doesn't skip generations". It's just my belief that it does, I don't believe an 'evil' mother or father will necessarily have 'evil' children. But we'll agree to differ!

Hope you have the pleasure of encountering them that is. Special treats as they say.

40. That's just absurd. JFK's dad was an evil prick.
But JFK was a good man. Just to provide an example.
It's unfair to judge somebody as evil just because of the actions of their parents.

101. My point exactly...
I don't know that I would call Joe Kennedy evil but he certainly was a cut-throat businessman. Evil or not, all of his children developed a keen sense of obligation. And a keen sense of fulfilling it. As have his grandchildren. Even the ones who have had problems with drugs and alcohol. All of whom owned it and became better for it.

Unlike the Bush children and grandchildren. Who think they don't need to own anything except an attitude that they are above it all. Including the law.

Michael Reagan was adopted by Reagan and Jane Wyman.

Funny how the son who didn't share genetic material became very rightwing, and the son who did share genetic material became very liberal and enlightened...You just never know.

77. Oh my
You and several others apparently have a problem with anyone posting anything you don't agree with and when you can't counter with a rational response you resort to accusing them of being a freeper or tell them to fuck off. Why don't you fuck off? I'm tired of being told to fuck off and tired of being called a freeper because I can look at things beyond a very narrow partisan view which obviously you cannot.

91. Wait...I'm the partisan one?
You are calling the children of a politician evil based on nothing, yet because I say that's nonsense it makes me the narrow minded one?

The reason you are being told to fuck off is because you cannot separate those deserving of criticism and those that are not. Leave the kids out of the argument for fucks sake. It has nothing to do with partisanship

52. What's amazing are the first two pix they chose of W
In the first, classic mouth breather inaction; the second, W with his chimp face on. He actually doesn't look too bad in the one with his tie blowing, but what's with that informal belt with that suit? Oh wait -- he's probably got those gawdawful boots on, too. GQ for Gumby Quarterly

Edited on Sat May-02-09 03:30 PM by tblue37
the Bush twins and their mom when I read about the photo shoot for this picture:



During the photo shoot the girls were laughing at the image they presented. The said, "We look like cupcakes. Mom, do we look like cupcakes?"

Laura responded, "Yes, you do."

Maybe it's just me, but I found the exchange charmingly humorous and self-deprecating. It made me like all three women better than I did before, and now whenever I see such gowns, I always think cupcakes.

(I do think the gowns are gorgeous, though.)

62. I've never had anything against the Bush Twins or Laura.
I think they're probably fine folks. It's not the twins' fault they were born to such an idiot father and while Laura chose marriage, you've got to wonder if she just shakes her head most of the time?

92. And laura had the grace to defend Michelle when others were attacking her
for the 'never so proud' statement. She talked about Michelle just not having yet learned how the national media can take anything you say out of context and twist it...and how she knew Michelle loved America and other nice things. (Michelle even sent her a thank you note)
I didn't hear a lot of republicans do that. She could have said something vague if not cutting but instead she defended her strongly.
She also didn't flinch when she was being interviewed with one of her daughters and her daughter said she might vote for Obama. She just smiled.

103. The First Ladies Club...
I think they all stick together when it comes to the "press corps" which is gunning for them from day one. No matter what the political reality of their husbands, they are usually the ones the press corps goes after simply because they are easier targets. They all are baptized by bonfire. And often it is the bonfire of the vanities.

Nancy Reagan was crucified because she preferred couture and Hillary Clinton was then crucified because she didn't. Seems no matter what they wear, there's a criticism in the media. Michelle Obama seems to have gotten it from both ends whether she wears J Crew or Lanvin.

Michelle Obama made a harmless comment that was blown out of context and then blown out of proportion.

Nancy Reagan did the same thing and while everyone laughed over her "itty bitty gun that fires itty bitty bullets" comment the reality is her commment was also taken out of context and blown out of proportion.

First Ladies aren't elected to the job. They seem instead to be doomed to the job.

80. So do I!
I swear, just a day or two ago they showed old Bush footage on TV and I just felt this awful dread and revulsion, like UGH, get him off my TV! You know, when you feel you've put something traumatic way behind you and it's just so very unwelcome to see him pop up on TV again, talking like a moron, especially now that we have a president we can be proud of who can actually speak... that's how low the bar was set. Just ughhh.

79. You'd kiss him too if he'd made you rich...
No one knows how much the Bushes are worth. Probably billions at this point. Most of it from oil. And much of it from the long-standing relationship with the Saud family. All of it hidden away in corporations and trust funds. They all live frugally. Only Samuel Bush really enjoyed the trappings of his wealth. They live frugally only because it belies the wealth and of course the power behind the wealth. And they want to hide the power more than the wealth.

And they are good to those who are good to them. Which is how Dick Cheney ended up so rich from Halliburton. I bet he kisses the Saudi princes and kings as well. He is in the end just another loyal servant of the dynasty. As are, in a way, the Saudi princes and kings.

I still don't even like any of the pictures of pubescent teen girls in gowns looking like Queens.....disgusting!!!!!!!!!
