This one is pretty good; the audio is really clear, and at the end they cut to the crowd outside holding up deuce of diamonds playing cars with Bush's mug on'em while they sing!

Man, I wish I could have been there...

1. Bad form? Really?
Come on... Bush is a criminal, and this is a democracy. We get to criticize the President however we please. He serves at OUR PLEASURE.

3. Well, it wasn't even close
It's not like halt the crowd was belting out "Onward Christian Soldiers" and the other half "Hey hey hey, good-bye". Nor was it a scattered handful of people singing and most everybody else clapping politely.

This was unified, intense dislike!

And DC is just as close to the heart of the red states as the heart of the blue states... balance was not that hard to achieve if Bush had a smidge of a reason for anybody to like him!!!

18. The Villagers clutch their pearls whenever one of their kind is treated so inconsiderately
The ungrateful masses just can't see all the tremendous things Bush has done for them! Heavens, let us not be...uncivilized! Just because a few people are dead, there's no need for such rudeness.

:sarcasm:

19. typical bullshit equivalency from the Bush enablers in the media...
Matthews is just following the lead of people like Charles Krauthammer and George Will who refuse to see a difference between civility and decency.

If some politician (or a pundit like them) says that torturing little children to get their father's to confess is in the best interests of national security, well that's just an opinion on matters of policy. Nothing to get worked up about.

But if you called that politician a disgusting, vile excuse for a human being for suggesting such a thing, well now you're being rude, and we can't have that!

So, Bush sits back while 4000 people die in New York; literally eats cake while 2000 people die in New Orleans, which itself disappears under water; murders a hundred thousand Iraqi civilians and 4000 US troops; destroys the world economy and America's standing in the world, etc. etc.

But don't you dare boo him, because that's "bad form."

22. Exactly...
Only I think the figure in Iraq is up around 800,000 last time anyone gave a shit to count.

Bush is a POS and heckling him is the patriotic thing to do.

28. The last study done on the subject
Has Iraqi deaths at 1.2 Million people from this war, 2.7 million internally displaced, 2 million externally displaced, and another 1.5 million people, 500,000 of them children from the decade of sanctions.

It looks to me as though the number of dead are now approaching the number who died in the Holocaust.

4. Almost fell off my chair laughing!!!
Bad form??? Were they expecting RESPECT? For a man who took office twice after losing both elections, and then proceeded to destroy this country in every way he could, cheering or even polite silence would have been a totally appropriate sendoff. The na na na hey hey good-bye had me laughing till I had tears in my eyes! But what the man deserved was to be tarred and feather and run out of town on a rail.

5. They sang the same thing at the Malcolm X Library in San Diego when Bush left on the helicopter!
Coincidence...or an organized protest?

Very fitting in my view, and certainly not the worst song they could've come up with.

11. Absolutely!
Free speech zone are now returned to the entire country. Let's hope he has a thick skin because he just might finally have that bubble that he's been living in burst right in his face!

7. They didn't show this on TV
Okay, they must have I guess because of this clip, but when I was watching this with my girlfriend, she pointed out that they didn't show anything from the crowd when he entered and left. We both knew that there had to be boos. This is much better.

Maybe when he said, this is not what I expected, he meant that he thought that there would be pitchforks and torches?

8. When he dies, will his ghost get kicked out of the White House?
If not, he'd make a great boogey man for future presidents' kids....

Go to sleep or Bush will get ya!

20. I would think his ghost would be reassuring...
Say you're president in 2045 and the economy is once again in trouble and we're at war, wouldn't it be nice for Bush's ghost to show up so you can say, "Oh, thank God for showing up and reminding me that, no matter how bad things get, I will never be the worst president in the history of the United States." ;)

12. I think the anchors were referring to adults...I can see kids at a high school football game maybe..
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 09:19 AM by newtothegame
But adults at an inauguration? And throwing eggs 8 years ago?

We won, let's move on and sweept out the criminals with policies, arrest and convictions, not childish songs on a day that was supposed to be about OBAMA.

ed for clarity

14. Right, because shit like THIS:


...deserves respectful silence.

Our representatives ALLOWED HIM TO MURDER
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of INNOCENT PEOPLE.

Our voices must be heard SOME WHERE!

He is LUCKY it is just a "goodbye" chant.

21. I was there, and I sang it, and I booed Bush...
...and I don't regret it one bit.

I also told my parents that I did it, and they both laughed hysterically.

23. Nor should you regret it.
I consider you a patriot for speaking down to that little man. Bush is a worthless turd and we are right to tell him that to his face.

25. I was really suprised to hear Rachel Maddow say
That she didn't see that coming. Really Rachel? I would think that you of all people would have seen the reason the crowd reacted to Bush in that way. I was disappointed with her when she said that yesterday.

27. I thought it was tacky at first, but now I believe it was richly deserved. Here is a man who
spent eight years saying "fuck you" to the citizens of the USA, and it was about time he got a little bit of a "fuck you" in return.

29. it would have been tacky if they had booed McCain
the way Republicans booed Kerry at the inauguration in 2005. that was far worse considering Kerry had not served as President and had lost that election

in this case Bush had served as President and people had reason to boo him.

30. I have waited to see THIS video...
for an agonizing long ass time. Unplanned, but a wonderfully executed event. I would love to hug each and every person that was singing, "Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Good-bye".

The look on *'s face is now wonderfully etched in my memory.

The man was scared shitless.

P.S. Can I download this to my hard-drive? And if so, how to I do that?
