So basically you are saying since George has got more blood on his hands, he should get the prize?

No I disagree, let's see what George did at home shall we?

--Allowed the torture of so called "enemy combatants" in US institutions overseas.


And Obama is continuing it.


--Spied on his own people, illegaly I might add, in order to "combat" domestic terrorism.


And Obama is continuing it.


--Completely destroyed the economy by refusing to actually sit down and read the issues at hand and do anything but spend more money on the war.


And Obama is continuing it, and expanding immensely on the spending.


--Dissolved the Iraqi army in the days following the invasion. This lead to millions of people without jobs to feed their families, who in turn joined the insurgency that he "quelled".


And Obama killed the U.S. economy, thereby leading to millions of Americans losing their jobs.


--Has the blood of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of civillians.


And Obama's working on his share.


--Black Water Scandals


ACORN scandals.


--Oil For Food Scandal


More ACORN scandals.


--Mission Accomplished Speech


57 states speech.


Ok, so that last one was just a shot at him I will admit. But people who receive the prize should be receiving it for having done something positive, that didn't direcly cause the death of thousands of people and the dissolving of a constitution and the systematic destruction of foreign relations for corporate profit.

Bush did more positive than Obama did in his first 11 days in office.

I could not have said it better. Plus, Bush didn't hire a bunch of avowed communists to be his advisers.

I agree that he's no better than Obama, but he was President for 8 years versus 10 months.

Well I think it is kinda intolerent to make fun of a poor guy because he didn't always say these the way he intended. George is very smart and people tend to underestimate his smarts and his great sense of humor.

Cut and paste quotes? Very inventive. Let's see what Obama has said in the past, shall we?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of -- I don't know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing." --confusing German for "Austrian," a language which does not exist, Strasbourg, France, April 6, 2009

"No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something." --making an off-hand joke during an appearance on "The Tonight Show", March 19, 2009 (Obama later called the head of the Special Olympics to apologize)

"I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any seances." --after saying he had spoken with all the living presidents as he prepared to take office, Washington, D.C., Nov. 7, 2008 (Obama later called Nancy Reagan to apologize)

"I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." -- defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber, who argued that Obama's policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008

"What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." --in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, who jumped in to correct Obama by saying "your Christian faith," which Obama quickly clarified (Watch video clip)

"Let me introduce to you the next President -- the next Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden." --slipping up while introducing Joe Biden at their first joint campaign rally, Springfield, Illinois, Aug. 23, 2008

"Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee -- which is my committee -- a bill to call for divestment from Iran as way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon." --referring to a committee he is not on, Sderot, Israel, July 23, 2008

"Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain...administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change." --Amman, Jordan, July 22, 2008

"How's it going, Sunshine?" --campaigning in Sunrise, Florida

"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."

"The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."

"Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions." --exasperated by reporters after a news conference

"You're likeable enough, Hillary." --during a Democratic debate

"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died -- an entire town destroyed." --on a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people

I think your idea of safe and mine differ quite a bit my friend.

Safe should not come at the expense of freedom and life, which is what happened in this case.

So according to you George NEVER did anything illegal? Or wrong to the american people?

And you never answered by question about Rwanda. Why did George not intervene there? If he is such a humanitarian bent on keeping the world safe, then he would have jumped at that opportunity no?

Not inventive at all but keeping in rythm with the thread humorous. How can it be invented again when Bush already said them.

Well freedom and safety have always came at the expense of life. Nothing worthwhile in this life is free. I suppose if some people came in and threatened to harm your wife and children you would just say "in the name of peace, have your way my brothers". I hope not.

You evaded the question with another ridiculous statement. Nobody would say yes to that.

Stop using a straw man and actually speak about the issues or please take your trolling elsewhere.

You still haven't answered by Rwanda question....clever evasiveness.

There is a HUGE difference between protection, and war profiteering my friend.

I don't really know why? Maybe he was just following the lead of Clinton and maybe Obama is not doing anything about it either to follow the lead of Clinton and Bush before him.

Why hasn't any of the other great nations of this world intervened in Rwanda? What about Canada, Britain, etc.. Why are we always expected to do all the damn work in this world.

And that's ok with you?

So we can invade other countries who have NEVER asked for help, yet ignore the ones that do?

Yeah, that's worthy of a peace prize alright.

And actually other nations have attempted to help in Rwanda. But you can't pick and choose these things my friend. You either promote peace where it is needed or you pick and choose your battles based on the ammount of profit involved after the fact.

The ladder of the two is morraly wrong and this is what has occured.

Actually no...

You have been starting wars, extending them, leaving the countries in which you operate devout of any sort of living conditions, economic system or government system (proper functioning anyway) among a plethora of other things.

You see, America WANTED to be the police of the world, it gave you all prestige and honor to do so. However it's strange that you would defend the actions of one Tyrant and condemn the acts of another.

And this tyrant was George Bush. Look at all the ILLEGAL things he did, and then gave himself immunity in order to be protected from his obvious disregard for human life and the rights of his own citizens.

Do you find that fitting?

Do you think that George deserves all this praise simply because the US hasn't been attacked in 7 years? An attack that most people would imply he ALLOWED to happen.

He dropped the ball on one day and that gives him carte blanche to raid the world to make up for it?

Justify this to me. Justify his ILLEGAL activites and his lack of speaking ability. Justify the Patriot Act and Gitmo.

I will give you a chance to convince me, I respect your opinions, but you are going to have to do better than that my friend.
