‘What about the Bush Administration?’

Do liberals really believe they have a complete pass from answering any questions or factually answering any allegations of corruption against their beloved President by saying ‘What about the Bush Administration?’ or ‘the last eight years….’?

I have such a new love and respect for Michelle Malkin.  This girl can fight!  And while she doesn’t make the hosts jump out of their skin and leap with vocal rage like Ann Coulter has with both Matt Lauer and Barbara Walters, she does a darn good job.

In both of these videos, Malkin discusses corruption and cronyism and with Joy Behar gets the ‘What about the Bush Administration?’ line. 

I’d like to point out that all conservatives were angry about Mike Brown and Harriet Miers and actually fought against Bush for appointing them.

Simply because these folks existed though does not excuse the true corruption hanging around the White House these days. 

Be prepared as the veil continues to be pulled off.  Now it’s time for every alleged act of corruption out of the Bush administration to make a comeback.

Valerie Plame, call your agent!  Maybe you can get that book published, after all.

  1. The “What about the Bush Administration?” argument is the political equivalent of “But Johnny’s mother lets him smoke pot, stay out past 11, ect…”, you tried with you mother when you were a kid, the end of it was the usual line “if everyone else jumps off a bridge” phrase your mother would say. You might as well say “Stalin killed 60 million people so why can’t I?”

    Yes Bush was wrong on things, that doesn’t make it right if Obama does it, or does it even more. Grow up.

  2. I think her fan base is growing. She is a great debater and her facts to the discussion cannot be ignored. Her passion and gentleness makes her standout. The View’s interview of her was simply the best to see the left female shut up. They were ill prepared and dumb on the topic. Matt from the Today Show was simple speechless.

  3. “The “What about the Bush Administration?” argument is the political equivalent of “But Johnny’s mother lets him smoke pot, stay out past 11, ect…”,”

    The Bush Administration would not have sent a high level person to North Korea to appease Kim Jong Il. But, this administration did. Now, Kim Jong Il will try his next stunt because this one worked.

    I am glad those two women were released. At what cost remains to be tallied.

  4. John, I actually think that the North Korea thing made Obama look like he was unable to handle things on his own without the Clintons stepping in to save his behind.

    Is that necessarily the truth? I have no idea. But that’s what it looks like to me.

  5. Michelle Malkin kept them speechless because when you offer sound proof of corruption, the supporters of the person who stands accused don’t know what to do. Of course they’re going to be quiet; they can’t admit that their guy was wrong this quickly.

    I have to point out the fact that liberals decried Bush for refusing to release White House visitor logs due to security concerns. Then, when Obama refused for the same reasons, nobody made a peep.

    Do as I say, not as I do.

  6. “Do as I say, not as I do.”

    You betcha!!!

    That is the bedrock tenant of Liberal think. It’s official form as coined by Ann Coulter is:

    One set of rules for me and a completely different set of rules for everyone else.

  7. “In both of these videos, Malkin discusses corruption and cronyism and with Joy Behar gets the ‘What about the Bush Administration?’ line”

    Yes, to point out the hypocrisy of conservatives, who lauded and lapped up corruption on the part of their president, then turn around and call Obama corrupt for some contrived reason known only to the nutbags who spout such drivel.

    I like watching Michelle Malkin getting all worked up over something she has to know damn well no one is taking seriously…

  8. “I like watching Michelle Malkin getting all worked up over something she has to know damn well no one is taking seriously…”

    You’ve never read her work, have you?

    She proverbially skinned Bush alive. On more than one occasion. As, might I remind you, did WE.

    We just feel that there wasn’t as much corruption during Bush’s years. In politics, you will always have some level of corruption. That’s the nature of the beast. But when you build a campaign on promises of transparency and change and all you do is give more of the same, you make yourself out to be a liar.

  9. “You’ve never read her work, have you?”

    Fuck no, I can barely stand the sight of her.

    “She proverbially skinned Bush alive. On more than one occasion. As, might I remind you, did WE.”

    Please. If that bailout never happened, you’d never have this flimsy argument to stand on.

    “We just feel that there wasn’t as much corruption during Bush’s years”

    Are you serious right now? That was the most blatant and wanton law breaking regime ever seen in this country. This is what I mean when I say you were fine with every single fuck up Bush made, except when it came to violating the paramount free market. Violations of conditional amendments, no prob; but money, oh shit, it’s on! One thing I do respect about my conservative friend Alma, at work, is that she’s principled, not partisan. I disagree with quite a bit of her positions, but she’s right when she says she’s a true conservative, and it warms my heart when she expresses her desire to Bush behind bars, and not the kind that earned him a DUI…

  10. “Yes, to point out the hypocrisy of conservatives, who lauded and lapped up corruption on the part of their president, then turn around and call Obama corrupt for some contrived reason known only to the nutbags who spout such drivel.”

    Just as Michelle said to Behar (just before she left her looking down with her mouth open), even though the White House is filled from top to bottom with corruption and cronyism, your best answer to it is moral equivalence. And most of that moral equivalence is based upon your own conspiracy theories that got a pass because of the mainstream media’s left leaning slants.

    Your conspiracy that Bush was racist and left blacks floating around in New Orleans. The conspiracy that he was hungry to go to war and engaged in illegal and immoral activity by removing a guy who really WAS evil.

    And as Mel pointed out a few posts ago, the conspiracy that Bush lost the election in 2000.

    Coulter; by the way, wrote quite a humorous column this week on the conspiracy of Obama’s birth certificate and in detail pointed out the true crazy left-wing conspiracy theories since 2000 against Bush.

    “Are you serious right now? That was the most blatant and wanton law breaking regime ever seen in this country.”

    Of course, this is one of those crazy liberal conspiracy arguments.

    Just because you scream them doesn’t make them true, Robert.

    I’ll bet you still believe that the White House revealed the name of a covert agent and listened to your cell phone calls because they had nothing better to do.

    The fact is, this White House is worse with cronyism, and the fact that he rode in like he did promising change makes it worse.

    And finally, it doesn’t matter what Malkin screamed at Bush over…it could have been Harriet Miers as Ann Coulter also skewered him over, it could have been his stance on illegal immigration, it could have been the bailout.

    The fact is, conservatives were overwhelmingly critical of Bush – including some of his massive spending. But we hold true to the mission in Iraq as does your President who has continued the surge and continued the surge in Afghanistan. (The second part that left Joy and Whoopi’s heads down at the end).

    And if that isn’t serious enough for you, check the NY Times Bestseller list and see what’s number one. 🙂 People are being informed. Get ready to be really irritated.

  11. To prove Malkin wrong, why don’t you answer without infecting us with your crazy Bush theories? Where’s the substance to your answer to the points made in the book? Hell, what’s the substance to answer just one thing she states in these interviews?

  12. “Fuck no, I can barely stand the sight of her.”

    Robert, that ranks right up there with a woman in Florida who petitioned her kids’ school district to stop schools from carrying the Harry Potter books. Her complaint was that the books supposedly taught satanism and witchcraft to kids and it was dangerous. When asked if she’d ever read the books, the woman said, “no! I would never subject myself to something so evil!” What you just admitted is every bit as nutty as that broad–you’re just on the opposite end of the political bent.

    “Please. If that bailout never happened, you’d never have this flimsy argument to stand on.”

    We were climbing all over Bush back when he was snapped holding hands with King Abdullah and barking about keeping the country safe while allowing our borders to remain wide open. We questioned his and Cheney’s ties to Enron, too. Get mad at us for being conservative, but don’t talk about what you apparently didn’t read. The fact that you don’t like our views doesn’t mean we’re always wrong, and it sure as hell doesn’t mean that we’re the extremists you accuse us of being.

    “…and it warms my heart when she expresses her desire to Bush behind bars, and not the kind that earned him a DUI…”

    Oh, so you’ll respect someone for going after Bush the way you do, but if they get mad at him for different reasons and try to tell you that they disagree with your reasons, they’re complicit? Come on. I’m still waiting for you to give me tangible evidence that Bush stole the Presidency.

  13. Bush could not ave stolen the presidency, he was too dumb remember, granted we just spent the last 8 years hearing about how stupid the guy was while at the same time how much of an evil genius he was since he could rig the election and plant all the bombs in the towers without people knowing, just so he could go to war in Iraq to finish what his dad started.

    When it all comes down to it all politicians are scum, and they all are dirty, Bush is gone, Obama is here, talk about him, you might as well talk about Nixon and not only is Nixon not the current president but he is dead. Obama doesn’t get a free pass because someone else did something wrong.

  14. “Bush could not ave stolen the presidency, he was too dumb… ”

    One thing people seem to forget is New Hampshire. If the Democrats had taken that state, then forget about who won Florida or how because it becomes moot.

    New Hampshire was a very winnable state in 2000. Ralph Nader screwed up the Democrats in that state. Perahps if Gore and Co. had payed more attention to New Hampshire, then history might have rolled out different.

    So enough of the bitching about Florida. When you could have saved yourself and you chose not to, don’t bitch about how things go.

  15. Do the liberals understand and comprehend that Bush is no longer in office? No wait, they can’t seem to let go of Sarah Palin and Gov. of Alaska was the best she could do. So yeah, if they cling to Sarah Palin why not cling to a former President of the U.S.?

  16. “Just as Michelle said to Behar (just before she left her looking down with her mouth open), even though the White House is filled from top to bottom with corruption and cronyism, your best answer to it is moral equivalence.”

    It’s really a matter of convenience to point out that someone can be so concerned with the machinations of a crazy neocon like Malkin, while turning a blind eye to the mountain of corruption perpetrated by someone with an R after their name. It’s the same with this these loons bitching about spending; where the hell were they when it cost us a trillion to bring democracy to Semites in some far off land? Where were the hue and cry over expanding government when your guy grew government by 40%? You know, I hate to break it to you people, but Bush was no conservative.

    “And most of that moral equivalence is based upon your own conspiracy theories that got a pass because of the mainstream media’s left leaning slants.”

    Oh really? Is this the same liberal media that marched us happily into a war based on outright lies? That media? Or is it the liberal media that painted Al Gore to be a sore loser, when history and the facts prove that he won the popular vote? Those damn liberals in the media! The media is all corporately owned, you clown. And unless you’re going to try to convince us all that giant media conglomerates that only benefit from republican deregulation are somehow rooting for the other guy, please keep that shit to yourself…

    “Your conspiracy that Bush was racist and left blacks floating around in New Orleans.”

    Do you actually know what a conspiracy theory is?

    “The conspiracy that he was hungry to go to war and engaged in illegal and immoral activity by removing a guy who really WAS evil.”

    Again, no conspiracy there. Conspiracy theories start with conservative Alex Jones, who wants us all to believe that the Bilderberg Group is secretly controlling every aspect of our financial lives. That is a conspiracy theory, the belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event. Pointing out that Bush went to war without a declaration from Congress, in violation of the constitution, is not a conspiracy, it is a fact.

    “Of course, this is one of those crazy liberal conspiracy arguments.”

    You’re out of your mind. Is it legal or is it not legal, according to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, to place a wiretap on a phone line without a warrant? Is it legal or is it not legal to lie to congress? Jesus, in your world, nothing is fact unless Ann Coulter says it is, and reality flies right out the window…

    “The fact is, conservatives were overwhelmingly critical of Bush – including some of his massive spending.”

    Bullshit. The first ounce of criticism of Bush came after he left office, and even then, you’re riding the news of the fact that he left office with the highest disapproval rating of any president in history. Had he been popular, you’d be singing a different tune…

  17. “When it all comes down to it all politicians are scum, and they all are dirty”

    That’s not true. Some are, well lots are. Anyone hear about scumbag William Jefferson being convicted of corruption? The moron still maintains his innocence. But, there are statesmen out there. They’re sometimes hard to find, but they’re there. Russ Feingold is one, and as much as I disagree with many of the guy’s positions, even Ron Paul can be put into that category.

  18. “So yeah, if they cling to Sarah Palin why not cling to a former President of the U.S.?”

    Says the guy who hails from the party who regularly bashes Jimmy Carter at every available opportunity…
