Looney Liberal of the Week: Richard Reeves

PARIS, France -- This week's award goes to Richard Reeves (author). Don't ask me why he's hanging out in Paris, France. He recently wrote a biography of Reagan which his liberal peers describe as "a surprising and revealing portrait of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century." Why surprising? Because it is not completely negative. Is it completely positive? Well, I don't know... I haven't read it.

Nevertheless, despite any tribute to Reagan, Reeves had the audacity to publish an article this week which asks the question, Is George Bush the Worst President — Ever? You can read the article at his web site HERE, (if you must).

As "proof" for his suggestion, Reeves uses the following lies and innuendos...

  • He has taken the country into an unwinnable war and alienated friend and foe alike in the process
  • He is bankrupting the country with a combination of aggressive military spending and reduced taxation of the rich
  • He has deliberately and dangerously attacked separation of church and state
  • He has repeatedly "misled," to use a kind word, the American people on affairs domestic and foreign
  • He has proved to be incompetent in affairs domestic (New Orleans) and foreign (Iraq and the battle against al-Qaida)
  • He has sacrificed American employment (including the toleration of pension and benefit elimination) to increase overall productivity
  • He is ignorantly hostile to science and technological progress
  • He has tolerated or ignored one of the republic's oldest problems, corporate cheating in supplying the military in wartime

  • "Unwinnable war"? ...by whose definition? Oh yeah, that's right... Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha (idiots).

    "(He has) alienated friend and foe alike"? ...Friends like who? ...France, Germany and Russia? ...who needs 'em? "Foes"? ...yeah, and so who cares about our foes?

    "He is bankrupting the country"? ...who is he kidding? The deficit is actually declining thanks to the Bush tax cuts. Job creation is at an all time high. More jobs with more taxes coming in and deficits declining ...ya think maybe he's talking about France?

    "He has deliberately and dangerously attacked separation of church and state"... Way to go George W!!!! I'm behind ya 100%! It's about time. Those nincompoops (sp?) on the left don't understand that we have Freedom OF Religion... not Freedom FROM Religion (idiots).

    "He has repeatedly "misled," to use a kind word, the American people". Yeah, well PROVE IT!!! G.W. said nothing different than most Democrats said about Saddam Hussein in the lead up to the War in Iraq. Those idiots just can't remember (or don't want to remember) that they said the exact same thing Bush said. And if G.W. had different or "better" intelligence than the people on Capitol Hill, then that info was even more alarming and frightening than the National Intelligence Estimate (idiots).

    "He has proved to be incompetent". Yeah, by comparison to who?... J. "Flip-Flop" ("I was in Vietnam", "3 self-induced Purple Hearts", Mr. Botox, Mr. Spray-on Tan) Kerry? Gimme a break! Or... Al ("I invented the Internet", Mr. Lock Box) Gore? Gimme a break! ...George W. Bush was chosen by God to be our President at this crucial time in history for a reason. Nobody else could handle the job. And that includes Bill "1st black president", saxophone-playing, bicycle-riding through the White House, doughnut-eating, blowjob-receiving, liar before the grand jury, ("depends on what the meaning of IS... is"), only second-to-be-impeached president, and the very first president to be accused of rape... Clinton.

    "He has sacrificed American employment"... see attached graphs (source U.S. Department of Labor).

    "He is ignorantly hostile to science and technological progress"... Oh yeah, you must mean the guy that approved the use of existing stem cell lines for R&D purposes. Oh yeah, you must mean the guy that is pushing hybrid cars and hydrogen-powered vehicles. Oh yeah, you must mean the guy that wants to go back to the moon and on to Mars. Oh yeah, you must mean the guy that wants to develop a National Missile Defense system. Oh yeah, you must mean the guy that wants to develop our nuclear power capability.... No science or technology there!

    "He has tolerated or ignored one of the republic's oldest problems, corporate cheating in supplying the military in wartime"... Huh? Where did that come from? How 'bout some evidence? What in the hell is this guy talkin' about?

    I can't believe we have to put up with this nonsense. Like Reagan, it might take 25 years, but you watch... G.W. Bush will be right up there with Washington, Lincoln, FDR and Reagan... Garonteed!

    Well, most Americans have never heard of Richard Reeves, but I can assure him that George W. Bush is going to enjoy a fine place in history, given the short and particularly the long range view.

    Reeves just summarizes for the sheep of the Left their own version of the Bible and their talking points. He provides the unsubstantiated sound bites, and his followers baaaa the chorus.

    Some one posted the other day about how liberal and moderate Christians don't believe the Bible.

    It seems that liberals and moderates want to create their own reality. (Maybe that is too broad a brush - let's narrow that to "liberals"). Or in the words of one (in)famous ruler: "What is truth?"

    Oh, yeah, by the way. Great arguments and statistics. Keep on, bro.
    And did I say waaxbbfx?

    Well anyway, what true blue American patriot actually gives a rodent's posterior what some limp-wristed author living in "Gay Paree" has to say?

    Other than that, excellent post, Mr. Eye®...

    I think he might be right in the unwinnable catagory. We have won but the press and the Democrats insist that we have lost. The more we win the more they demand we surrender and pull out. With that standard it is unwinnable.

    By those standards we will never succede as long as Geoorge W. Bush is in office. Nnow If kerry were in office he would be credited now with having turned the war around, turned the economy around, and saved the country. Nothing would be any different than it is now becuase his lib policies he would have tried to pass would not have taken effect ye.

    Thanks for the info Hawkeye! To think I liked this guy when he played "Superman".

    I thought he died back in the late 50's? Maybe it was just his brain that died back then?

    BTW, are these word verifications getting harder, and will there be a test later?

    Just Ask Reeves....

    Hey Everybody,

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I think we might have solved the SP2 mystery (see my post of Nov 22, 2005). Spent the day today installing WinXP using a new version with SP2 already already integrated.

    I also had the luxury of telephone assistance from a top Microsoft technician who reports directly to the VP in charge of the ENTIRE Windows XP program. (It seems that my friend has friends in high places, and word of her problems went right to the top).

    Everything went (mostly) smooth. So far, no blue screens of death... Yay!

    Best regards,

    BTW, was that a play on words... (i.e., "Just Ask Jeeves")? Cute. Sorry it took so long to get it.

    About what I would expect from someone who changes his clothes in a phone booth and thinks he can fly.

    Thank you!

    Good to hear from ya buddy. BTW, that big "S" on his chest doesn't stand for Superman... heh, heh.

    Hmmmpf. I am thinking that even when (and YES I mean WIN) the war nobody will ever know it because the media will report it as a stunning victory for the 'insurgents.'
