I found this in an e-mail that was not attributed to any one person or posted as anything other than an opinion. It does seem to be a well written and thought provoking group of questions! There is a double standard here and it is getting more and more prominent every day in our LSM!

Obama: The "Smartest person in America"?

If George W. Bush had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?

If George W. Bush joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?

If George W. Bush had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one company had an accident would you have agreed?

If George W. Bush had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87,000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, would you have said that he is clueless?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas, would you have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had ok'ed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had ordered the [termination of employment] of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 19 months -- so you'll have two years and five months to come up with an answer.

Every statement in this pathetic laundry list of failures is factual and directly attributable to Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

Some of these statements drip of bias. But, yes some are scary true.

Anonymous email...honestly, this fact doesn't cause any hesitation with you? No fact checking as long as it bashes a given POTUS that you don't like?

ATS's motto is "deny ignorance"...is it too much to ask posters to actually factcheck anonymous spam emails before posting?

Here...I'll get you started..with item 1.

Obama doubling national debt in 1 year.

On the day President Bush took office, the national debt was at $5.727 trillion.
When President Bush left...10.7 Trillion

He doubled the national debt.

So when this email says "If GWB had doubled the National Debt"...It means "GWB Doubled the National Debt.?

Or is it saying...only in the first year? OK...thus far... 18 months...more than a year.. President Obama has added 3.5 Trillion to the debt...roughly 30%. So why did the email saying President Obama doubled it in his first year?

www.politifact.com...

BTW Fact checking is YOUR JOB, NOT MINE...before posting ANONYMOUS EMAIL SPAM

if some crazy person made up a bunch of stuff about bush, would you have believed it?
if someone blamed all of our problems on bush, would you have agreed?
if someone was stupid, would you have laughed at them?

Wow, Hillary sure will be PO'ed when she reads the title of this thread. Oh, that's right, she is the smartest WOMAN in America, I forgot.

That is quite a list.

Why don't we defend the facts and worry about the whole "Liberal" partisan hackery later once we asses whether an anonymous email is BS or not?

Or is this where you close your eyes, plug your ears and start chanting the talking points of an anonymous spam email?

But surely assertions that fit my personal bias can't be wrong?
Aren't we all entitled to our own facts?
Whats wrong with mindlessly repeating talking points, if it is done in concert?

You are not adding in the debt that the legislation he has signed in the first year will do to the budget and the debt. You are only going with what has now been spent. What is already in the pipeline to be spent with no way to ever pay these new entitlements back! They ARE part of the debt he has signed onto the citizenry.

No its not BS. I remember all of these points in the past. yes bush added almost 5 trillion in 8 years but obama has added 3 Trillion in 18 months. Now just because i bring up bush doesent mean i suport him fully. Bush was to liberal of a republican, he spent like crazy and doesent represent the conservitve side of the republican party. I would say he was more of a liberal then anything. He would have fit in the Dem party just fine

Like most 'successful' politicians, he's a great b.s. artist, nothing more. "Smartest Person in America"? That's just outright comedy.
My favorite clip of the "Smartest Person in America" is probably the Town Hall meeting in Virginia when his brain seemed to have stopped working.
As Dan Quayle said: "Man, that Obama is dumb!"

This kind of thing is worthless, no matter who or what it is attacking. Those that don't see that need to start posting on AOL.

WTF are you talking about?

Best count is 1,823 people died due to Hurricane Katrina..

In Tennessee they lost 31 people.

And the Govenor of Tennessee stated


Bredesen: "The President was on the phone to me before the sun came up practically on Monday morning." In another White House statement, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs posted Bredesen's description of the federal response:

I have to say that FEMA and the White House have been absolutely supportive. Very quickly FEMA was on the ground here before the raindrops started falling. ... The President was on the phone to me before the sun came up practically on Monday morning. Slightly after it came up, other people from the White House had called and checked in with us and helped. ... I've never seen this kind of a response to things that have happened. We've had our share of tornadoes and those kinds of things. ... I'm very, very pleased with the response we've gotten from the administration

Please stop treating ATS like a garbage dump.

Hmm.
Been looking through it.
Most of it is a slam dunk though a few points are arguable.

Strangely enough. This isn't even a major portion of what Obama has "accomplished" since he got into office but one arguably incorrect point seems to be all that is needed to aquit him of all accusations in the eyes of his supporters.

Is is biased? Yes.

Is it true? Pretty much.

I guess the truth is ignorable as long as it doesn't come in the form of a liberal media news story or a partizan proclamation from Obama or one of his tzars.

glad to see ATS is still a never ending cesspool of arguments that lead to no solution for the problems the majority of us face.
Remember that nothing will change unless you actually do something. Calling or emailing your puppet politicians, complaining on the internet, voting and continuing your mediocre daily routines will not change anything.
How hard is it to understand that politics are dividing us even more? How hard is it to think of the possibility that the right and the left are under the same control as the president and do things to stir up chaos and cause the misinformed people to react emotionally, instead of rationally. Seriously guys. GROW THE HELL UP. This argument is as childish as arguing over your favorite sports team. I cannot believe the immaturity and baiting that goes on at ATS which is allowed by the mods and staff, yet talking about marijuana gets the post deleted.

Hahaha welcome to the internet folks! sad to see all your potential wasted on being workbots until you die of harsh conditions because you couldn't put your minds together to form critical thoughts or solutions to save your god damned children's future. Good going, world. Remind me to tell a story 60 years from now about how the majority of the world was scammed into accepting money as power, to be slaves to material things, to kill over material things, to hate one another over material possessions , to accept what was in front of them as all there is without a single thought bigger than the mental box they were imprisoned in.

This post is denying the entire ignorance of this website and this thread. Is what i said too blunt? Remember that everyone has their own feelings on subjects and when they don't correlate with their own, they might turn an actual discussion into a temper tantrum because "YOU DON'T AGREE OR BELIEVE IN WHAT I BELIEVE IN
"

You REMEMBER? DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT YOU ARE DEFENDING AS TRUTH?

IT"S RIGHT THERE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE...Reconcile it with what you just posted.

To double the National Debt in one year...President Obama would have added 10.7 Trillion in 12 months...what you just stated is that he added 3 trillion in 18 months...which is acccurate..

So the claim is BS.

What are you missing?

BTW - GWB did in fact double the national debt during his presidency.
