Just another out-of-work executive…

from the AP:

Former President George W. Bush has visited a Dallas hardware store that earlier this month made him a lighthearted offer to work as a greeter.

Andrea Bond, a manager at Elliott’s Hardware, says Bush walked into the store Saturday and quipped: “I’m looking for a job.”

The store had published an open letter to Bush, inviting him to apply for a store greeter position. The tongue-in-cheek appeal appeared in The Dallas Morning News and its commuter-oriented sister publication, Quick.

Bond says Bush spent about an hour shopping and talking to customers during the surprise visit. He bought a few flashlights, batteries and a can of WD-40. He also bought night lights.

Bush and his wife, Laura, moved into a home in the Preston Hollow area of Dallas on Friday.

Well, the nightlights part I can understand. But, the WD-40, for example. I mean, really, if he’s going to mix in with his former constituency, he’ll be needing an industrial size container of vaseline. I’m sure he can find someone local to show him how it’s used.

Yet Mr. Obama will inflate his challenge by forsaking several gimmicks that President Bush used to make deficits look smaller. He will include war costs in the budget; Mr. Bush did not, and instead sought supplemental money from Congress each year. Mr. Obama also will not count savings from laws that establish lower Medicare payments for doctors and expand the alternative minimum tax to hit more taxpayers — both of which Mr. Bush and Congress routinely took credit for, while knowing they would later waive the laws to raise doctors’ payments and limit the reach of the tax.

What! Bush cooked the books!. He lied to we the people about how much he was spending and how much we were going to have to pay. You don’t say. Well, I think that hardware store owner should look for someone with a little integrity…an honest person. After all, we already have enough tax evaders, and over-compensated crooks, and such out there who have Made Off with other’s hard-earned money. We need change. Thank God, we now have Obama in place of Bush and his cronies.

Amazing how you libs were able to figure it out all on your own, isn’t it?

I mean really, all these years I thought the war was free.

Speaking of “cooking the books-”

Obama’s first budget proposes cutting the $1.3-trillion deficit he inherited when he took office to $533 billion by the end of his first term, bringing it to about 3% of the economy, said the official, who asked not to be named because the budget hasn’t been released.

OK so what about the other 3 trillion he added to it in less than 30 days?

And you got to like it, the most “transparent” administration in history and they take the fifth amendment when discussing the federal budget.

Question: Does anyone really care about the Oscars besides HollyWeed and their airhead democrat following?

Chad Harris

February 22nd, 2009
10:56 am

The quote from W a few months ago was that he wanted “to make a ridiculous amont of money.” He’s doing just that. Management asked who care’s about the oscars? It’s a fair question. The majority of people who watch (less and less per year) watch to escape from their lives and check out the glitz in the the overpriced clothes on the red carpet and to watch for surprises and reactions. Most of them will never see most of the movies that are nominated, and a lot of movies are just as good that aren’t.

But my question is why would anyone pay a cent to hire Bush to speak unless you wanted to explore the mind of a complete failure in every job he’s had except this one.

Bush is speaking at private venues for a good chunk of change that will decrease and will be nowhere in the ballpark of the length of time and amount Bill Clinton rakes in.

Tge Canadian firm where his first private speaking engagement is held March 17 is stupidly paying him $150,000 according to the Dallas Morning News.

Bush wasn’t “lookin’ for a job” at the hardware store because greeter would have been way over his head and tool salesman would have been out of reach for W.

Yes, George W. Bush was everyman.

And of every man I know, and I mean relations, friends, aqaintances and coworkers – past and present – none are qualified to be President of the United States. Many very well educated, successful, deeply good human beings touch our lives everyday, but let’s be honest,
it requires much more than an everyman skillset to be President of the United States of America.

I’m willing to bet President Obama not only knows exactly what 10WD40 is and how to use it but in addition could accurately communicate the meaning of the economic concept of the broken window and put rollers in his daughters’ hair at the same time. He’s smart, he’s wise, he’s good,
he’s brave, he’s pragmatic and he has a sense of humor. Well rounded, not cornered.

Obama has had an amazing first month.

To: AJC/DNC Mgmt – To each their own. Some (like me) find the Oscar’s and movies in general (they are one of the few industries still making money) entertaining so I am awaiting with anticipation tonight’s presentation. Hugh Jackman being hot is only one of the reasons. Some people still look for light hearted ways to lift them from their everyday burdens and not constantly whiling in self pity.

To: @@ – As for the topic at hand Bush needs to give up his unearned, tax payer supported pension (which includes medical care, Secret Service protection. staff salaries and free stamps to name a few perks). He needs to get a real job, if he can find one, and get off the government dole. He’s a welfare cheat if there ever was one. Accepting payment for poor job performance should be unacceptable. And as to whether Obama knows how to use or what to do with WD-40 is the least of this countries problems. We have already been to willing to turn over the reigns of this nation to a mediocre handy man who let others do the reading and analyzing and never, until the end, made a decision himself. Bush did a better job in his last 120 day day then throughout his whole presidency. His Cabinet and Staff deluded him into thinking he was the “Decider” and he believed in the house of cards they built. It finally dawned on him (too late I might add) that the very people he had been listening to not only dragged our country down internally as well as externally but ruined any legacy he truly wanted to leave behind for history. If he had listened more to his father and less to the neo-con’s we all would have been better off including himself.

Dave R. has made vacuous pleas for legal information, invoking the Constitution and the Federalist papers but as per wingnut script avoiding any legal specifics.

In the law suit between the House Judiciary Committee and Carl Rove, Harriet Miers and John Bolten who have been held in contempt of Congress, District Court Judge in D.C. John Bates denied them Absolute Immunity in an opinion that was about 120 pages, but the D.C. Circuit stayed Bates order before they could testify and the contempt citation ran out with the last Congress.

We’re back for Round II because the House is pushing contempt hard and giong to the mat, except that by law the House could have these 3 picked up and thrown into a room in the basement of the House via the principal and power of Inherent Contempt. The Senate could and should do the same to Josh Bolten. I’m betting all of these people who are tough law and order types would be wetting their pants after 5 minutes locked in a closet.

Late Friday, the D.C. Court of Appeals cut the time in half for the Obama administration to decide how their DOJ is going to weigh in –they’re the potential “other side now.” Will they defend Rove, Miers, and Bolten or will they opt for the traditional path of always trying to uphold the power of the Presidency?

The Obama administration asked for two weeks, basically because there are 3 bloggers who have jumped from the blogging world to take over control of the DOJ office that makes these kind of decisions–it has a name and it’s OLC–Office of Legal Counsel.

The confirmation hearings for these 3 bloggers who are also 3 of the best known constitutional law professors in the country and prolific law review writers deploring every stance the Bush administratino has taken in 8 years will be Wednesday afternoon, and they will be confirmed in a slam dunk although the Wingnuts on SJC will try to dog and pony show a few questions. What’s funny is that every lawyer like Cronyn knows they have to walk a tightrope because when they broach the laws that were broken as to wiretapping and torture and rendition, these prolific bloggers will be in their face having blogged every day against it and written several long law reviews dissecting the Bush law breaking.

It could be an entertaining confrontation if C-Span has the sense to televise it or someone streams it from the web since SJC hasn’t gotten around to getting in this century doing it.

Late Friday, the D.C. Appeals panel moved up the date for the Obama administration to submit its brief, to the exact day when the new OLC will be confirmed.

The obvious solution is for Obama to get their opinions and let them run the show now so that the brief will reflect what they want done as it would after they are confirmed.

The move up means that the Obama administration whose decision makers hate the Bushies and blogged against them either have to make a deal with Rove and company within 2 days or else decide how they will play their position in the D.C. Circuit.

Obama recently issued an Executive Order on Presidential Records holding that the President gets to decide the Executive Privilege claims of the predecessor.

Actually what the Clintons have been doing are far worse NRB than you describe. Bill has swung numerous deals for money into their Foundation, and Library Fund. When HRC got the SOS job there were all kinds of noises and head fakes that there would be full disclosure of the secret lists of the two money machines for the Clintons and there haven’t been. The Clintons are a 200 million dollar buisness right now, and HRC has stiffed small vendors in this economy over a few million which she could pay as easily as some people pay valet parking in midtown.

There is an obvious conflict of interest when the wife is SOS and the husband is soliciting millions and milliolns every week in and out from countries off shore. It’s going to continue while HRC is in office as she spends her time getting ready to run against Obama in the 2012 primary.

“*George Bush appealed to the voter because he was every man.*”

In the end, George Bush appealed to about 24% of voters. By then, the rest figured out Bush was not “everyman” and that his primary interest was “richman.”

There are very good reasons not to quickly forget about George Bush. First of all, his legacy will plague us for decades. His apologists excuse Bush of ruining the economy, blaming it on everyone but the executive in charge who was responsible for anticipating and preventing disaster. Some here adamantly maintain that the big trouble pre-dated the Bush administration, that he inherited a meltdown that was years in the making. But, for some reason those who claim the symptoms were obvious during the Clinton administration and again after the 2006 mid-terms, can’t account for the all-Republican interlude between 2000 and 2006. Apparently, Clinton could have averted the crisis and Obama must solve the crisis — but for six years, Bush and the Republican congress was helpless.

The claim that the liberals wanted Bush to fail is ridiculous. When a president fails, the nation fails, and nobody wants that. Opposing policies is not wishing for failure. Bush failed early, often, and all by himself.

The reason not to let Bush slink away without a candid evaluation is that, if we do, we will not have learned anything from the disaster of the past eight years. The Bush administration was consistently unprepared for events and developments. Alarms before 9/11 went unheeded. Evidence that Iraq had no WMD and was not an urgent threat was ignored. A powerful hurricane moving on New Orleans was dismissed. Chaos and civil war following the fall of Saddam blindsided the Bush administration, though intel predicted its likelihood. The surplus left by Clinton as a reserve in case of a future crisis was erased by tax cuts for the wealthy. The housing and credit bubble was a loudly ticking bomb allowed to explode because greed trumped fiduciary duty. Bush anticipated, prepared for, and prevented none of these disasters. It was his job to do so. We need to remember that, because we will be living down George Bush the rest of our lives.

No 3 people have been better at taking apart the Bush administration and Bush DOJ. And I want people to get their heads around it–even wingnuts who never heard of OLC in their lives.

It’s also unprecedented for 3 everyday bloggers to get some of the biggest decision making power in the US. It’s never happened before and it’s a great deat for the blogosphere and this country.

Not true, we all said his first stimulus was a waste of time and money. We have been proven correct. So far Obama’s has been and will continue to be. Just wait and see!

Bush and the Republican congress was helpless.

For two of those eight, a democratic congress was extolling the worthiness of Fannie & Freddie while Bush was telling them something was afoot over there. They didn’t listen. Bush’s “HOPE NOW” program made more sense than Obama’s HOPE somewhere down the road program.

Alarms before 9/11 went unheeded.

Sho ’nuff, they did — all the way back to Carter, the alarms went unheeded. Bush was the first president to take any action against the threat of a militant ideology. You might not have liked the way he went about it but at least he did something.

Evidence that Iraq had no WMD and was not an urgent threat was ignored.

‘Ya know….traces of uranium were recently reported by the IAEA at that site in Syria –the one the Israelis bombed back in September? Just before we invaded Iran, SOMETHING crossed over into Syria from Iran. The question of what has yet to be answered.

A powerful hurricane moving on New Orleans was dismissed.

I beg to differ. The evacuation warning was put out in plenty of time. Why is it Bush’s fault that there were those that didn’t heed it? Do the names Nagin and Blanco ring your bell?

Chaos and civil war following the fall of Saddam blindsided the Bush administration

I somewhat agree with you on that but how many more troops would have suffered had there been more boots put in at the onset. Would there have been an “awakening” to the damage militancy wreaks on an otherwise, civilized people had we gone in with too many guns a-blazing and imposed our will upon them?

Hear the Word of God, heathens-

4 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.

5 Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth,

6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”

7 He said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

8 Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance; and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

9 Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

10 And the crowds asked him, “What then should we do?”

11 He said to them in reply, “Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.”

12 Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do?”

13 He answered them, “Stop collecting more than what is prescribed.”

14 Soldiers also asked him, “And what is it that we should do?” He told them, “Do not practice extortion, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be satisfied with your wages.”

Management,
The tongue tattletales on your soul. If you speak evil of another, you are letting others see who you really are, what you believe deep down. This is not me talking, this comes from the Word. And you can’t just cherry-pick what you want to hear. Either you believe it all, or none. If you believe it, you will live it. I live it. Please re-consider James’ commentary on the tongue. If you are a Christian, your actions and speech will be reflective, and May God Bless.

6The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
7All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, 8but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
9With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and saltwater flow from the same spring? 12My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

13Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. 16For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

“Accepting payment for poor job performance is unacceptable”. Wonder if Franklin Raines thought about that when he bought his 8M condo in FL with part of his 190M Fannie bonus. I wonder if Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd, the CEOs of Citibank, Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney as well as those running GMC, Ford and Chrysler thought about that either. Never a mention about those “deserving, hardworking, competent businessmen”. Easier to blame Bush for every damn thing that has happened since the 2000 elections.

And yet Cynthia Tucker can write fiction as she did today, and because she calls it her “opinion” it somehow has some value. It must be nice to write off 30 years of fiscal mismanagement under Democrat policies with a single, ignorant paragraph –

“First off, the government did not force banks to give loans to poor people with bad credit. The Community Reinvestment Act — a law passed in 1977 to prohibit “redlining,” the practice of withholding loans from entire neighborhoods — had nothing to do with this crisis.” – Cynthia Tucker

Yeah. Right. Only if you had your head up Barney Frank’s butt for the past 30 years (I’m sorry – was that insensitive?).

People are going to dissagree with you when you blame everything on an individual who has been in office for only one month. The economic mess is owned by the Bushadministration and his appointees including Greenspan, Phil Gramm, and people who not only deregulated but couldn’t regulate their way out of a paper bag at FINRA and SEC and we got Madoff and Stanford, Minimadoff.

A lot of people disagree with the policies we have had the past eight years to the point where it will be very difficult for anyone who is Republican to get elected in all but a few venues.

Pushing those policies is like pushing Heath Ledger to quarterback in the NFL. It ain’t gonna happen.

“Taxpayer, Sarah Palin had to pay back taxes – yes. I did not deny that. What I denied, and why you remain ignorant, is that she was, in your words, a tax “cheat”. And as I asserted days ago, and what you still refuse to accept (even though it is in the very same story you used to call her a tax cheat) is that a panel changed the rules on whether her per diem was taxable or not. The rules were NOT changed for Hope & Change’s Treasury Secretary, nor for Tom Daschle. Ergo, these two are “tax cheats”. Sarah Palin owes back taxes, but is not a tax cheat.

“Taxpayer, you’re the third person of the left persuasion to claim that people want their leaders to follow the letter of the Constitution, or some other such verbiage. I asked two of them, Ms. Godzilla and Chad Harris, to cite specific policies they wish President Hope & Change supports or would like to see him support that they consider “Constitutional”. Unfortunately, I also challenged them to name the specific text from the Constitution or the specific Amendment that would allow that particular policy to be enacted.

I note that both declined to do so, as specifics are not liberals strong suit when it comes to arguments, or for that matter, the Constitution.

Maybe you can try to connect the dots; as in, Social Security, welfare, housing programs, banking regulations, etc, etc, etc. Tell us which provisions of the so-called stimulus bill are Constitutionally-correct, and don’t forget to cite the pertinent wording that allows it to be so.

I’m sure the silence will CONTINUE to be deafening.

Maybe then you can all stop trying to be Constitutional scholars when you have no qualifications to be so. And you can stop using the Constitution as a punch-line.”

All Taxpayer can do is go back to his moronic (and incorrect) assertion that Sarah Palin is a tax cheat. As we all know, cheating – as in lying – implies intent.

Chad, great link to that article written by Dean.

Though there will be volumes written about the abject failures of the Bush administration and the neo-con ideology. But this paragraph is perhaps the single best summary of the quasi-criminals I have read recently:

Examples of the President and Vice-President’s overreaching are many: the pervasive secrecy, the flawed legal opinions authorizing torture and ignoring the Geneva Conventions, the endless and vague signing statements announcing the President would not follow the law, and their refusal to comply with an array of long-standing laws – from the Presidential Records Act to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. None of these actions has strengthened the presidency, rather, it is through these actions that Bush and Cheney have shown themselves to be law-breakers. They have also shown how presidential hubris and shamelessness, accompanied by Congressional timidity and widespread public gullibility, empowered the Bush/Cheney presidency. Such conduct has also established dangerous precedents for any future presidents who have no interest in following the law.

Never said she didn’t, Taxpayer. Just called you out on the phony “cheated” on taxes line. Soory you aren’t man enough to admit it when you’re wrong.

And thanks for proving that you are nothing but IGNORANT on Constitutional issues. I love it when liberals are caught red-handed at their games. They get all huffy and start calling people names.

And Chad baby, I said we’re not talking Constitutional LAW (or your foolish OLC) as it has been bastardized by liberals and the government over the past 200 years. We’re talking hard-core, raw U.S. Constitution, something you obviously have never read.

And I, for one, know that it wasn’t President Hope & Change who got us into this mess. Just as I know it WAS Democrat policies over the past 70 years that did. Which is why there is nothing he can do to fix this mess, because he believes in this Socialism stuff more than most.

Naw, it’s not about “sensitivity”. Try calling people by the name they use in real life or on a blog.

I’m trying to educate the teacher. Start reading some quality sites so that you can make an informed opinion when you make your political choices instead of the junk you linked to. There aren’t many excuses–you have an internet connection so thousands of them are out there and free.

If you’d get off the junk websites and read some decent ones, you’d be better informed.

Right now the Republicans have no one who has a chance at getting elected President. At least Charlie Crist is keeping it real on the money Florida needs. A lot of people are on the street there and Bush, Gramm, Greespan, the deregulators and ignorance that was systemic in the banks, mortgage lenders and the end users contgributed. I could write legislation that would force mortgages to be explained to perspective homebuyers in explicit language and force qualifying that would have prevented much of the home loss, but job loss helped to do the rest and Bush owns it.

There is no economic package that is going to get out of this near Depression or severe recession in the entire 8 years of Obama’s Presidency, and in the entire 8 years of the following Democratic President.

Paul Krugman sure took ole Georgie Will (who caused a WaPo retraction last week) to school this morning.

Reuters — Amnesty investigators in the Gaza Strip said they found fragments and components from munitions used by the Israeli army, many made in the United States, in school playgrounds, hospitals and homes.

Good grief! Amnesty International thinks we’ve got our children making munitions? U.S. citizens are making them in our homes?

Words matter.

I’ll let you know when I need or want your help. Until then….

Chad,

all they have is the names.

no facts, no truth, no substance, no clarity – just names.

Pathetic, isn’t it?
