safe? oh, that's right. for eight years now, i've slept like a baby. when any other prez was in office, i could not sleep at night. i was terrified.

so long, "w." the world will really miss you. we won't be able to sleep at night anymore from fear of terrorist. you left this nation in great condition. you will be in the history books alright. so long "w," and have fun watching someone else clean up all the shit you left behind.

it's me...your turn is here. Let's hope Obama is as great as you and all his cronies think. How about looking at yourself in the mirror and see what you yourself have done to contribute the this MESS and stop deflecting to one man. America is made up of millions, government for and by the people. At some point you will have to own your own contributions and ignorance of the last 8 years. You couldn't be more wrong...And I say that with all due respect. :)N

it's me, i've never liked bush for president. however, let me say somethng about the safety issue. it's easy for you to sit in the middle of america and joke about safety. we had a real crisis here in america in september 2001. ppl on the very streets i lived and worked on in new york, at that time, DIED on 9/11. i don't know what kind of aftermath there might have been if another prez were in office at the time. what i do know is my colleagues and i at the time still had to business travel. and those years following 9/11 was a very scary time to get on a plane. you joke about being not being "terrified" with previous prez. no other prez saw almost 3,000 innocent americans die as a result of a terrorist attack on u.s. soil. what i also know is bush was pissed, feisty, and kick-ass. and for new yorkers who were attending funerals for weeks following 9/11, bush had the right attitude.

i don't know how well this "war" was handled. but i know that cocky, nail-spitting bush was at the helm. and while i can blame him for oh so many of this country's problems, i'd be a hypocrite to not credit him with this country's success.

nikki, you never backed down in your support for our prez. you are a true patriot and i love your fever. respect and love,

maria

The Obama rhetoric Bush picture kinda creeps me out.

namaste said...

yeah, nik. i agree with clay. why not use a better pic of w instead of a copycat of the obama campaign pic.

Nikki said...

Maria, its really a mockery, but I see your point. I am going to look around for a better one...stay tuned! :)N

Sorry, I love you guys but I won't miss Bush for a second. While he did a fine job initially after 9-11, the rest of his presidency was a embarrassment. Don't know how Obama will do, but it couldn't possibly be worse.

It's Me said...

Amen, Sandi!


"America is made up of millions, government for and by the people." I love this quote of yours, Nikki. I really do. I will keep reminiding you of it when you are dissing our new president.

I looked in the mirror, as you asked me to do. I asked myself what I have done to contribute to this mess America is in. Hmmm...
Lemme see.....

How did I contribute to lieing to this nation and leading it into an unjustified war? How did i contribute to the financial mess and unemployment? How did I contribute to all the shark mortgage loans?

It's me seems to forget that Bush (and congressional Republicans)attempted to intervene on the mortgages calling for additional regulation, but Fannie and Freddie had already purchased Barney and Barack (a guy who'd only been a senator 2 years but was number 2 on their contribution list).

It's me seems to forget that through most of his presidency Bush had lower unemployment numbers and higher GNP growth rates than Bill Clinton did.

And as for the unjust war crap, It's me seems to forget that before Dubya took action her boy Saddam had gased his own people, invaded Iran, Invaded Kuwait, attack Israel twice, fire rockets at Saudi Arabia, tortured kurds, attempted to assasinate a former U.S. President (that alone should be grounds to open up a can of American whoop-ass) and violated UN resolutions like Bill Clinton violated campaign workers.

Nikki, you nailed it with the "intellectually superior"

The present participle of the English verb "to lie" is "lying". As in the common 90's expression, "The Clintons are lying." C'mon... "lieing" wouldn't pass muster in fourth grade.

As to a couple of your other questions, how did you contribute to the nation's lousy finances? Well, if you overborrowed, you contributed. If your net worth is zero because you're up to your eyes in consumer debt, you contributed. If you live from paycheck to paycheck and never put anything away in the form of savings, you contributed. If you fell for an adjustable-rate mortgage, you contributed. (Not all your fault on the mortgage, because idiot banker/salespeople were peddling these mortgages, but it wouldn't have gone as far as it did without common sense taking a vacation.) The problem wasn't shark mortgage loans, it was the opposite: too easy, too cheap, too stupid credit.

Now, It's Me, if you didn't do any of these things, no you didn't contribute to the financial mess. I'm just targeting your words, perhaps inappropriately, to make a point.

It's Me said...

El Cerdo, thanks for lending a helping understanding hand! And, for the record, NO, I did not contribute to this financial mess!
