    Imagine if something like this were true. Wait….it was.

    Who can forget that zany routine performed at one of GWB’s fundraisers, performed by the creator of the names TurdBlossom and PootiePoot, the master himself:

    “No WMDs in here.” Laughter. “Nope. None here either.” More laughter. “Nope. None over here either.” More laughter.

    It was quiet laughter. I don’t know if it was just the way the audio recorded it, or whether the people there were just as shocked as I was as to how awkward that was. Did they laugh just because he was president? Or did they really think he was funny? Do you think there might have been a parent of a wounded vet in the audience? Gotta give the man credit: I could never imagine having the guts to do that particular routine, no matter how friendly the audience.

    Nope. Before you say it, I’m not “blaming Bush”. Just a walk down memory lane, sparked by the obvious inspiration for this cartoon.

    …we do, just like 1930’s Germany.

    So glad our most “Open and transparent” President ever chooses a late-night comedy show to address the most critical issues facing our country.
    That was a really in-depth, hard-hitting interview he and Jay Leno had.
    Talk about a joke……

    “…. the Patriot Act was shoved down our throats by his predecessor…”

    Spying on U.S. citizens started significantly under Carter with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, was expanded under Clinton, and expanded further by Bush and Obama. Obama had the opportunity to take the high ground by vetoing the 2012 military appropriations bill but didn’t do it. It seems as though a lot of our Presidents are hell bent on making the FBI in the image of old German and USSR organizations.

    “Must have been watching fantasyland”

    Nope. It’s for real. I’m sure you can find it on YouTube.

    “That is where you liberals spend all your time instead of seeing the reality of 2009-2013.”

    If you had ben paying attention, you’ll note that I’m pretty up on what’s happening. I just haven’t decided that anything that happened pre-2009 never really happened, or didn’t really matter, like some others on this site.

    Want to go after those who really violate our privacy get the profiteers who sell our phone numbers to telemarketers

    Get on the no call list.File a complant every time a telemarketing scumbag calls.

    With some folks it takes a 9/11 to get their attention.But they spend so much time stoned that they soon forget what just happened.

    Lest you forget (elephants) or even if you’re an ass (mules, donkeys?)…we have ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS had domestic spying programs.

    I accept your apology.

    “Oh indeed—YouTube is a credible source for you.”

    Perhaps you’ll find this more to your liking. You can read a transcript or press the “watch and listen” button. Enjoy.
