The D'oh!-Bama Administration
http://www.foxnews.com/slideshow/politics/2009/12/06/obama-staff-mishaps?slide=5
The Obama administration's low- and mid-level staffers have made their share of goofs during their first year in office. Of course, some didn't make it the whole year as a result of those goofs. With "gatecrasher-gate" making headlines this past week, here's a look at the more memorable flubs and faux pas of the Obama administration (not counting Joe Biden). Chronicle details Gatecrasher-Gate, New York Flyover, Russian Relations 'Reset', Vetting Woes, and Teleprompter Troubles...

In order for a scandal to get "gate" status, it must first contain a possible impeachable offence.

Fabricated drama.
Senationalizing tabloid news stories.
Fox.

Many New Yorkers considered BHO's buzzing of their city with AF1 just that....

How about you back that claim up?
Air Force One Terrorizes New York
http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/04/27/air-force-one-terrorizes-new-york/
New Yorkers have a lot to be worried about these days. President Obama's plane shouldn't be one of them. About four hours ago, a Boeing 747 flew low over Lower Manhattan, trailed by two F-16 fighter jets. Can you guess the first thought most New Yorkers had upon seeing that sight? That's right, they thought that Mayor Bloomberg was on his morning commute from the Upper East Side to City Hall. No, just kidding. They of course immediately thought of September 11th, and did the sensible thing: panic.

Scare Force One: $328,835 to Taxpayers to Terrify New York City in Fly Over … Feds Knew it Would Cause Panic

As President Barack Obama tell American to cut costs and states that he will order government departments to cut a paltry $100 million … the low-altitude flight for a publicity-photo shoot and one of the most ignorant, stupid and moronic stunts ever by any Administration cost tax payers $328,835.

OBJECTIVE reality
As I recall, the very first thing Bush's people did following inauguration day was to make up some ca-ca-poo-poo story about the Clinton people trashing the White House before they left. The story was totally phony, but they had people barfing and defecating in desk drawers, leaving behind pornography, cutting phone and computer lines, and stealing the White House china. And all the media, apparently being virgins to Karl Rove's brand of perverted sense of fun, duly reported it as if it were fact. :rolleyes:

But if you wanna compare first years...by all means!

Of course, to my mind, nothing compares to putting off Richard Clarke's warnings about terrorism for nine months, then going on a long vacation, getting a memo about bin Laden attacking the U.S. and saying, "I'll read it later..."

I also didn't see the part mentioning that Obama himself was in the cockpit flying the plane :rolleyes:
If the imbecile can't take responsibility for the office he holds maybe he go back to community organizing...

So we've finally gotten to the point where you can do nothing but hurl insults everywhere. Way to go.

Have you ever realized that no one cares? How many people got killed because of something he didn't know about? None, yeah. Who cares that he uses a teleprompter, I haven't heard "thrice" in a while. Has one ever noticed that when there is a Democratic president all we heard about is irrelevant things to them being fit to lead: Obama, Air Force One photos; Clinton, Monica; Jimmy Carter; his brother. When Bush was in office no one brought up his drug use, alcoholism or the fact that Laura Bush may or may not have killed someone. Could you actually talk about him and his actual policies, there is plenty one could critique him for, but really, would John and Sarah have done it better?

Not to mention Dick Cheney shot somebody, and that was just a terrible mistake.

I get the feeling that if Joe Biden shot someone in a hunting accident, conservatives would be screaming attempted murder. Because obviously whoever got shot had discovered just a bit too much about the global warming conspiracy, and had to be silenced. :eek: ;)

Considering that it hasn't passed yet, sure let's talk about hypotheticals. Iraq or Bush economic policies totally not responsible for the current economic situation.
:rolleyes:

Is it at all possible for you libs to discuss anything without blame attributed to former president Bush? Is it a gag reflex from you Democrats to accept responsibility for nothing and blame everything on someone else? You sound like a bunch of childish delinquents blaming others while accepting no responsibility...

Umm. You brought up the deficit and a bill that hasn't passed yet. Seems as if the bill cannot be blamed for a hypothetical problem given that it hasn't passed yet. If you ask me why we have a huge deficit now, my answer is above.

Our economic problem has been long in the making. Bush certainly didn't help the matter.

No, clearly, as InTheNet has pointed out, our economy was amazing right up until the day of bHo's inauguration. We were all making millions of dollars, there were no homosexuals on the planet, there was no war, and it rained puppies and sunshine.

Then we went and elected...a kenyan :eek:
:rolleyes:

Confession is salvation for the soul; Democrats need to accept the concerns of the citizenry of the republic and the tears from the stars of the flag of democracy over the hijack of U.S. Constitution.

Isn't that why we have a checks and balances system. Oh yeah, the Puerto Rican judge is going to cause massive problems, oh wait, Puerto Rico is part of America.
