Eric Dondero Notes Over at Libertarian Republican That Some Hard-Core Democrats Are Actually Missing Dubya... "ahhh, how sweet"

From Eric Dondero:

A pretty amazing development that none would have dreamed of a mere 9 months ago. As Clarice Feldman writes in the American Thinker:

Nine some months out of office, and the miserable job Obama is doing has started to rehabilitate the reputation of George W. Bush.

The times, they are a changin'.
Feldman was commenting on a recent article published by a popular Pro-Hillary Clinton blog, Hill Buzz. The Buzz editors, a couple staunchly Democrat Gay Guys from Chicago, were deeply impressed by President Bush's recent visit to Ft. Hood in the middle of the night, with zero media, in contrast to Obama's media circus show.

From Hill Buzz:

If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.

Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.

We were convinced that ANYONE who was president would have done what Bush did, and would have set that right tone of leadership in the wake of that disaster. President Gore, President Perot, President Nader, you name it. ANYONE, we assumed, would have filled that role perfectly.

Well, we told you before how much the current president, Dr. Utopia, made us realize just how wrong we were about Bush. We shudder to think what Dr. Utopia would have done post-9/11. He would have not gone there with a bullhorn and struck that right tone. More likely than not, he would have been his usual fey, apologetic self and waxed professorially about how evil America is and how justified Muslims are for attacking us, with a sidebar on how good the attacks were because they would humble us.

Honestly, we don’t think President Gore would have been much better that day. The world needed George W. Bush, his bullhorn, and his indominable spirit that day…and we will forever be grateful to this man for that.

As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.
