To the bitter end: Bush-haters throw shoes at effigy in D.C.

posted at 9:02 pm on January 19, 2009 by Allahpundit

One last ejaculation of dissent before everyone falls into line tomorrow morning. Consider it a happy omen for Obama finding common ground with Iran; after all, they do this over there, too.

I’m glad the little kid is participating enthusiastically. Somehow, it wouldn’t feel right without him.

That’s not George Bush, that’s Bill Clinton.

If it is, the effigy is upside down.

I wouldn’t throw shoes at his effigy, but he’s far and away the worst President I voted for. If the GOP wants to keep losing like it did in 2006 and 2008 they’ll continue pretending he was a Republican.

The man pushed to have $150,000,000,000 redistributed to lower and middle income taxpayers in 2008 via direct stimulus checks, used strong arm tactics to get the TARP and UAW bailouts passed (against overwhelming opposition from the people), gave Hank Paulson free reign to nationalize half our freaking banking industry… he handed a socialist the reigns to a country that’s already well on it’s way to being socialist. Good riddance to him.

That’s because you didn’t vote for him. I hate to tell you, but someone with a screen name, “popularpeoplesfront” who has contempt for Sarah Palin probably isn’t a conservative.

If you think this is the end of BDS, you are a fool.

All mistakes by Obama will be blamed on Bush.

Every time a distraction is needed because of some Obama scewup (and there will be many), they will hold a hearing on Gitmo, etc.

Derangement can’t be stopped by a calendar.

This is not the end, but the beginning.

You’re being too generous!

All mistakes by Obama will be blamed on Bush.

Agreed!

“upside down” LOL. These freaks are going to have a HUGE void. Maybe they’ll glom onto a good conspiracy theory to pass the time.

It’s already in progress. It’s called, “Yes we can, arrest George Bush!”

I wish I were kidding.

We will save on fuel costs during his travels; Superman doesn’t need an airplane….

What’s wrong with a bit of catharsis if it means they are less motivated to attract the Secret Service? She releases some steam, she goes on calmly and she lessens herself as a threat against Bush.

So those are the two choices this woman has: throw shoes at an effigy, or resort to actual violence?

How about this for a third way: handle your frustrations like an adult, and control your own behavior. I wouldn’t engage in an immature act like this one, and my teenager wouldn’t either. Is there some way you people could start acting like grownups? You’re in charge now. You’re on the hotseat. Let’s see how you can handle it.

So far I’m not impressed.

I don’t know what’s worse, their naivete or their lack of originality. A pathetic display.

Guess they have time to toss a few shoe’s. Today thousands of Americans will put in that two weeks notice, the Messiah will pay all the bills.

Usually sitting in a chair does not help a sore back, but having suffered moving injuries I can sympathize.

Of course, many would prefer of his detractors would prefer to see Cheney sitting in this.
