In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Video || Henry Reminds Earnest that Obama Called Bush “Unpatriotic”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday he felt “sorry” for Rudy Giuliani, who called President Obama “unpatriotic.” That is, Giuliani is merely pathetic, in the White House view.

I can tell you that it’s sad to see when somebody who has attained a certain level of public stature and even admiration tarnishes that legacy so thoroughly. And the truth is I don’t take any joy or vindication or satisfaction from that. I think, really, the only thing that I feel is I feel sorry for Rudy Giuliani today.

Aww, such high-minded stuff! Well, turns out someone else tarnished their legacy with such comments – NONE OTHER THAN BARACK OBAMA, who while running for president called George W. Bush “unpatriotic” for running up the debt.

Under questioning from Ed Henry of Fox News, Earnest was careful not to say Obama was “sorry,” lest he cast the same pall of pathos over his own boss.

Note Henry, in his questioning, is incorrect on one matter. Obama was clearly referring to Bush in using the term “unpatriotic.” Henry avows that Obama was referring merely to “the issue” of piling on too much debt.

  1. We knew Obama was talking about Bush with that debt comment. Trouble is, Obama piled on more debt than all our previous Presidents combined. Therefore, Obama is unpatriotic. #IStandWithRudy :D

    1. You are correct DeniseVB. Thanks for the hashtag.
      On top of that o speaks with a soft voice. He as said some terrible things himself in office.
      One thing he left out was the one step behind issue. Giuliani did not serve being one step behind.

  2. If we’ve been taught anything in the last 6 years it’s this: MrObama can deride, malign, ridicule any American he chooses without consequence.
    On the other side, no Repub, no conservative, no White person can say boo about MrObama unless they are prepared to pay a steep price.

    1. I feel if there were not any truth to the matter, than nothing should have been stated.
      Bush was being torn apart with words of distaste. He kept his attention on our safety!

    2. Sharyl Attkisson has a metric she calls the substitution game:
      What happens if the same events were done by the OTHER guy?

      So if $4 Trillion in debt equals “unpatriotic” — what does Obama’s red ink equate to?
      Terrorism? Treason? (Just considering sound bites the Obama campaign would use in another run for the WH).

  3. Obots always want it both ways. President Adolescent can demean the Presidency in any way that he wants — but if a person criticizes Obama himself, suddenly it’s very important not to do that out of respect for the office.

    I wasn’t aware that the person who is President is above criticism because he’s President. A new rule, I guess.

    Obama and Meesh never wanted to be in the WH. They needed the power for their agenda. Remember Meesh’s whining about no pay for the First Lady?

    1. Well said.
      I have always held respect for the office, but Obama is determined to turn it into a charade.
      He instead requires respect for the individual that holds the office.
      Big difference.

    1. Thanks for the website.
      One thing I overlooked, that he said:
      This is a P I have never seen before.
      He is correct, that is why I am still astounded by the blind sheep.

  4. 0 is a comedy of errors. In past times in history, there were the satiric & parody writers. Gulliver’s Travels comes to mind. The biting words & entertaining tales served up those current leaders on a platter. Things have changed now, as stated profusely, no biting words of criticism allowed, as anyone not in lock step is unpatriotic, racist & a Right Wing Extremist. Sad how far we have fallen.

    1. I agree. I am curious if the msm: Free Press, is going to stand behind his comment, even if they do not agree, or if they are going to bad mouth him for his Free Speech.

    2. ZD,…you mentioned Gulliver’s Travels, an excellent book to read and an indication that this has been going on for a long time.

      His satire is remarkable and still applies today.

  5. What happened to “America’s Mayor’? After 9/11 everyone united behind Mayor Giuliani – Repubs and Dems. Everyone, that is, but Barack H. Obama. He wrote an editorial for one of the Chicago papers blaming 9/11 on poverty and disenfranchised youths. Somehow, the media overlooked his one and only published work up to that time.

    Mayor Guiliani is spot on! Obama doesn’t care for you or me…or America. Almost everyone agrees that he is the most polarizing prez in America’s history. The facts are self-evident.

    CNN had an interesting discussion on the subject yesterday. Most surprising was the unfettered support for Mayor Giuliani from the two Black guests on the program. They denounced Obama more vociferously than Giuliani!

    ‘America’s Mayor’ is my hero. Thanks Rudy!

    1. I was unaware of that article. I am in the south. I can remember like it was yesterday feeling comfort for the strength he showed and gave. I hope he does not back down on his comment.

      1. “The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others,” Mr. Obama wrote. “Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.”

        1. Very interesting story and one that illustrates the squishy accounts Obama continually gives of his life events (think: his “composite girl friends”). Obama always seems to create convenient variations of he has said or done, often in contradiction to what others say he really said or really did. The most unbelievable aspect of the story is that Obama would have been on his way to work, or at work, around 8 am Chicago time. EIGHT AM. Not possible in Obama’s case. He’s not even up at 8 am.

          1. Good point, Marcus. Remember the story MOOCH told about having to get up early to get the kids off to school while he was snoring away in bed?
            Community organizers are not early risers. Who are they going to ‘organize’ at 8:00 a.m.? The gainfully employed?

          1. Playrighter regarding his comments of poor people. My grandparents went though the depression. My grandmother explained to me what they did with and without. My grandfaher as well served in WWII.
            Neither one of them, as well as anyone in my family went to violence because of having to do without. I was raised not to judge people who have more than I. As well I was raised not to look forward to the Govt giving me what I cannot afford for myself, such as a phone, a college education, etc.

  6. Gen. Patton understood, and Gen. McArthur did too, “there is no substitute for victory”.
    Von Clausewitz sum’s it up better in his On War,book 1, chapter 1, paragraph 2.
    Had to brush off a lot of dust off my copy.
