Bush Finally Shows Some Class

By Fred

Beyond anybody’s expectations, George and Laura Bush have been gracious to the Obamas, even having Barbara and Jenna give Malia and Sasha a private tour of the White House.

Republicans are usually such sore losers – like Sarah Palin blaming McCain’s loss on everybody but herself – is it possible that Bush realizes how deep in the ditch he’s plowed this country and he knows Obama is our only hope?

If McCain had won, we’d have seen a lot of self-satisfied smirking and good ole boy back-slapping on the steps of the White House as Bush and McCain put their heads together to figure out how McCain could keep Americans teetering on the brink of financial collapse and terrified of unemployment and marauding terrorists while he pretended to be improving things.

But with Obama, it’s all different. After he survived the slings and arrows shot at him from all sides with super-human grace, for Bush to diss Obama now would be a new low, even for Bush.

I think Bush secretly hopes Obama will repair the damage Bush has done so in hindsight he can claim, “See? It wasn’t so bad. I wasn’t the terrible president y’all thought I was.”

That’s why 20,000 people in Baghdad just threw a big block party to beat and burn Bush in effigy on the former site of that big statue of Saddam Hussein.

By being nice to Obama, Bush may be rehearsing his return to the role of lovable Uncle Georgie, the Bush family idiot everyone wants to have a beer with.

And Obama optimistically steps into the worst job in the world – cleaning up Bush’s mess.

    I have to agree with you Fred.. note to self talking to cats not good.

    But Yea I Really Don’t understand why Bourdain didn’t just do him up like a roast republican pig.

    Maybe that was a bit harsh, but impeachment for Clinton??? He screwed around.
    Bush Fucked the whole county.

    Obama has his work cut out for him, but from here it looks like hes the right cat for the Job.

    On the side, just watching football, the 96th Grey Cup. Gotta love Canada every thing has a history here.

    I, clearly, have no problem in talking to cats. It’s probably not good, but after 30 years as a social worker, dealing primarily with child abuse, I’ve rounded the bend long ago; it’s probably a pretty short trip to senile dementia.

    Fred, I’ve been hoping for some opinions from you guys about Barack’s cabinet picks, and Adele, after watching Sarah Palin, have you mellowed toward Hillary? I’m trying to withhold judgement ’til after the first 100 days. As you and Bob say, Fred, we’re so far in the crapper that Barack probably wants people around, who, at least can hit the ground running. In any case, it’s all very interesting.

    See, I can think about things other than Anthony Bourdain’s love life.

    Bob, I don’t think Karen would mind my saying that she talks to all of us here CONSTANTLY – like we’re people – because she has no other human to talk to. It undoubtedly has contributed to our phenomenal level of literacy.

    Talking to cats is therapeutic, and if you could pet us, your blood pressure would drop like a stone. So don’t feel bad about it. 😉

    We will undoubtedly be posting soon about Obama’s new hires. I saw Yul poring over the list in the paper just this morning. And Adele is watching Hillary very closely and plans to share her thoughts. I think Sarah Palin gave Adele such a good scare, she’s rethinking her harsh stand on Hillary.

    Bob, when you say you’re watching “football,” are you talking about the ball that’s pointy at both ends, or a round one? Not being into any sport but horse racing, I’m clueless about Canadian sports.

  4. Bob says:

    Pointy at both ends football, We call Soccer Soccer here. Not quite that British.

    It was a good game, end to another year. Alas my team lost out in the first round of the playoffs. Next year next year….. GO BLUE BOMBERS!!!!!

  5. catsworking says:

    Thanks, Bob. You taught me something. I had no idea that any country but the U.S. had football as we know it.

    Actually, we don’t know it. Karen doesn’t allow it ever on our TV. Aside from the few seconds where someone actually gets the ball and manages to run with it, in her mind it’s endless hours of watching men either standing around doing nothing, or lying on the ground in a heap.

  6. Bob says:

    Well our game is a bit different. Unlike your US game it only allows 3 downs not 4.

    We have a bigger field and more men on the playing field. Also BIGGER BALLS.
    The CFL ball is larger.

    I think cats would be awesome footy ball players, good claws to grab in the balls.
    Awesome speed, and good scrambling.

    If you like the world try some BBC. Learn a bit about the world you live in.
    The Internet is a wonderful thing.

  7. catsworking says:

    More men on the field doesn’t sound like an improvement. The Americans have a hard enough time moving the ball an inch with the people they’ve got.

    Cats might be good at football if we cared at all about competitive sports. We could really get into the tackling. The fur would fly! And you’d see a lot more scoring with our lightning-quick plays.

    We watch BBC World new just about every night because we enjoy the UK’s perspective, and they usually cover stories from around the world that our network news doesn’t deem important enough.

    Karen also leaves this magazine called “The Week” lying around that we read on the sly. It provides both the left and right American viewpoint, and writings from many countries on virtually all major happenings here.

    For the sake of well-informed blogging, Yul, Adele and I strive to be more catmopolitan than the average housecat. Sometimes it’s exhausting.

    Still think Obama has done such a wonderful job Fred??

  9. catsworking says:

    Hi, Sara. Very old post. Unfortunately, Fred died a little over two years ago, but I feel sure he would be disappointed with Obama now. On the other hand, that wouldn’t have any bearing on his opinion of Bush.
