Saying “I Told You So” Never Gets Old

We PUMAs have said from the beginning that Barack Obama is no different from George W Bush, and of course, no one listened. After all, we are just a bunch of old, unattractive, uneducated, Peruvian lesbians. Who cares what we have to say?

But now even Politico has noted Dear Leader’s mimicking of his predecessor enough to say this:

Truth is, the detention policies of George W. Bush and Obama are more alike than not. Indeed, Bush came within a weekend of announcing the closure of the Guatanamo prison. Somewhere between Saturday and Sunday, he realized he would never get congressional support without a concrete plan on what to do with the detainees. He was right. Obama has discovered he faces the same problem.

Neither speech was really about addressing substantive policy issues. Both were designed primarily to make Americans appreciate the challenges of being president. “Sympathize with me, people!” he was essentially saying. “This governing stuff is hard!”

In the National Archives speech, Obama could have been honest and said, “Look, we are a band of brothers with the last administration, struggling to find the best way to keep us both free and safe.” But he didn’t. Instead he whined, basically saying: “Look at the mess they left me. Feel for me, people.”

What a baby! OF COURSE GOVERNING IS HARD! That is generally what is done when running for public office. You know, governing and all. People vote for a candidate because they expect him or her to govern well.
And sooner or later, as even Politico admits, it’s going to come back to bite the President in the ass:

In the end, both speeches sounded great. The president certainly dodged a bullet at Notre Dame. Likely as not, the National Archives speech will help keep his numbers up, as well.

Over the long term, however, they could well damage the president’s credibility. Those on the left who hated Bush’s policies will figure out in a New York minute that Obama’s are not that much different. Those on the right, meanwhile, will quickly pick out the credibility gap and think of devilish ways to make it wider.

This could well leave us with a president less able to govern. If that happens, though, there is only one person to blame — and it’s not Obama’s speechwriter.

In fact, even some Obots seem to be coming out of their kool aide induced hangovers. Kos has yet to delete and ban the Diarist that has posted this gem:

OBAMA NOW OFFICIALLY SUCKS

there was no reason for this….there was no reason for a lot of things.

But this is ridiculous.

This is not the change I voted for.

Man did I get hoodwinked

from CREW

CREW learned today that the Obama administration is opposing our request that the Supreme Court reconsider the dismissal of the lawsuit, Wilson v. Libby, et al. In that case, the district court had dismissed the claims of Joe and Valerie Wilson against former Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby and Richard Armitage for their gross violations of the Wilsons’ constitutional rights.

and you think we are gonna get a truth commission?

or a repeal of DOMA

or a repeal of DADT

or single payer health care.

our MAN has become THE man.

Yes, rubyfruitjungle7, Obama is THE MAN. And you have yourself to blame for him. You could have listened to us. You could have stopped this from happening, but you didn’t. I don’t feel the slightest bit sorry for you, and I will continue to say “I told you so,” until I am blue in the face. I, among many other people here, will mock you relentlessly. Not only because it’s fun, but because it’s a paltry sort of satisfaction. To be honest, it doesn’t make me feel much better.

Because the majority of Americans aren’t Obots. The majority of Americans had jobs to keep, children to feed, sons in Iraq, medication they couldn’t afford, houses in foreclosure. They voted for what they believed and were told was change. They voted for what they thought was a Democrat. They didn’t have any incentive to believe that he wasn’t what he said he was, because they were good people who don’t have time to post misogynistic diaries on Daily Kos. I have no pity for you. It’s them I feel for. They were hoodwinked, not you. You should have known during the primaries, when THE MAN took four delegates that weren’t his and cheated his opponent to get the nomination. You should have known when THE MAN flip flopped on FISA. You should have known when THE MAN used sexism as a campaign tactic to smear and humiliate the women he ran against. You should have known when THE MAN wouldn’t guarantee that every America have Health Insurance. You should have known a million times over, but it was more fun to harrass the people who tried to tell you. It was more fun to call them uneducated, Peruvian lesbians.

You have only yourself to blame for THE MAN.

And that is why mocking you and saying “I Told You So”, will never get old.

  1. Lesson leanred? ~ Never scorn a PUMA!! 😉

    The great irony is that most deeply red conservatives were cheerleading PUMAs along the way as they sought to unveil the masked manipulator Odumbo.

    And that’s NOT because PUMA efforts might have helped McRINO either (who most conservatives generally detest!)

    …but it was because PUMAs (like conservatives) could actually see well in advance what a complete and bumbling idiot this man Odumbo was, how corrupt his background and associations were, and how very very dangerous this rookie political hack would be with virtually EVERYTHING he touched in America and abroad.

    Every conservative that I know would gladly forfeit 8 years under a Hillary Presidency if they could have prevented the rookie-hack Odumbo from gaining executive office for even 1 year.

    Hilary is no more liberal than McRINO and neither one of them would have driven the economy straight into the ground the way this Manchurian candidate Obumble has done.

    Like Conservatives, the PUMAs saw this disaster coming well in advance.

    Too bad the rest of the country was wearing their hopey/changey blinders.

    Dupes!
    ~ every last one of them who voted for this colossal failure of a President.
