Will Bush-Bashing End
by Ron Radosh in Pajamas Media
Bush and his defenders have good reason to be angry at Wilentz’s premature verdict. As Fulford points out, the President created the $30 billion Emergency Plan for Aids Relief, and extended it this year with a $48 billion to end the number of people being treated in Africa to three million and to train 140,000 health care workers who specialize in HIV prevention and treatment. Thus Bush changed our nation’s involvement in Africa in a positive fashion. The rock star and activist Bob Geldorf openly acknowledged this, pointing out that Bush “has done more than any other president” for Africa. But yet, as Fulford writes, “it’s unlikely that one in a 100 of [Bush’s] fellow Americans know about it.”
Yep. But, of course, for most on the Left, they really don’t care about the issues about which they claim to care. For them, it is all about hating Republicans, hating Conservatives and hating the President for anything and everything. President Bush could have discovered the cure for cancer himself and they still would have hated him and then blamed him for not finding it earlier. Meanwhile, Obama just says the word ‘cancer’ and they already credit him with healing the sick of the world and stopping the oceans from rising.
The morons who worship Obama based on his political career of achieving jack squat *nothing*, are the same morons who ignorantly spew vitriol at President Bush, even though he has achieved much in the areas of their stated political issues.
To answer Mr. Radosh’s question, no I don’t see the Bush-bashing ending any time soon, because we are not dealing with rational people here.
Interesting huh? Now that the racist, America-hating sh*t has hit the fan, Barack Obama and his cult minions are working overtime to eradicate any evidence of his close connections with Reverend Wright.
Also, note that this is being done for two reasons. (1) In order to hide all this from the gullible and ignorant and (2) because it is illegal for churches to campaign on behalf of a political candidate.
Via Steven Gilbert, at Sweetness and Light, who has been the one leading the way since LAST YEAR discovering all this stuff about Barack Obama, Reverend Racist and the Trinity Church of America-hating. Everyone else has just been finally taking notice now to everything Steven Gilbert has been uncovering for months. So if you want to know the latest on this, I suggest you make Sweetness and Light a daily read.
For the record here is Mr. Wright’s now disappeared endorsement:
Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
Senior Pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago, IL
Senator Obama’s pastor
I’m concerned with healthcare; the war in Iraq; the high rates of recidivism in our criminal justice system; the poor condition of the Illinois public school system. Many of the resources that go to support programs such as for those living with HIV/AIDS are now being spent to fund the war. We have to communicate… I support Barack because of his incarnated faith – his faith made alive in the flesh. He reaches across all faith communities and even to those who have no faith at all. He is building a community where everyone has worth. That kind of faith is not easy to find in 2007 and a man like Barack is a rarity.
Of course it is illegal for the head of a church (being a 501c3 “charity”) to endorse a candidate. And, indeed, the IRS is investigating Mr. Wright’s church as we speak.
Perhaps this is also tantamount to destruction of evidence. Though, probably not, since the site still lists other (also illegal) endorsements from various pastors.
Somehow one is reminded of how quickly the Kerry campaign expunged “Honest” Joe Wilson from its website within seconds of the 9/11 Commission’s report that confirmed he was a liar.
[First of all, related to the part I put in bold above, apparently the racist, America-hating jackass hasn’t followed the news that the Bush Administration has donated more foreign aid to Africa to combat AIDS than anyone in history. But I’m sure that didn’t ’jiiiive’ with what Pastor Race-Baitor wanted to indoctrinate and propagandize his parishioners with.]
Yep, this is just standard operating procedure (SOP) for Democrats. And they have been getting away with this nonsense for years. Remember back in 2004, John Kerry received the 2nd most popular votes in history… 2nd only to the amount of popular votes received by President Bush. So despite being an lying, uninspiring, military-smearing tool, more people voted for the schmuck than at any time in our history (save for President Bush in 2004). Now, you replace him with someone who is the same lying, left-wing tool and add Blackness, charisma and an adoring cultish fan-base and Obama winning the Democrat nomination spells doom for America.
Gateway Pundit has a great post up exposing the hypocrite Barack Obama, who campaigned for the Senate in 2004, praising his Pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright: Obama: “I Don’t Need Mr. Keyes Lecturing Me on Christianity. That’s Why I Have a Pastor.” (Video)
Here are a few more Christian teachings by Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright:
** The government lied about Pearl Harbor. They knew the Japanese were going to attack.
** We’ve got a paranoid group of patriots in power.
** The government lied about the Tuskegee experiment and purposely infected African-American men with syphilis.
** Fighting for peace is like raping for virginity.
** We are doing the same thing that Al-Qaeda did with a different flag.
** Black men turning on black men- That is fighting the wrong enemy.
** We cannot see that what we are doing is the same thing that Al-Qaeda is doing under a different flag. If they can’t find the weapons of mass destruction then they are going to do just like the LAPD and plant them some weapons of mass destruction.
** The stuff we have done overseas has now been brought back home to our own front yard.
** The government lied about the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color.
Apparently, these are the lectures of Christianity that Barack Obama prefers.
Be sure to read Gateway Pundit’s post and watch the video he provides.
UPDATE II: Captain Ed Morrissey proves that not only is Senator Kerry a hypocrite, but he is also an ignoramus. As are those who believe in the statements that Senator Kerry is making.
Once again, we have the spectre of Kyoto haunting the Bush administration, when it was the Clinton administration that refused to submit the treaty to the Senate — and the Senate that unanimously passed a resolution saying they’d never ratify it. The Byrd-Hagel Resolution in 1997 made it clear that the US would not allow itself to be bound by the treaty as long as it exempted India, China, and other developing nations. That’s the same position as the Bush Administration has taken — and the same position that John Kerry himself took in 1997 when he voted in favor of the Byrd-Hagel Resolution.
That’s yet another example of the hypocrisy of John Kerry — but there’s more.
He took the time to scold the Bush administration for its lack of effort on AIDS and other diseases in Africa. However, Bush has already spent more on these issues than the last Democratic administration did in eight years. Humanitarian aid to Africa comprised $1.4 billion a year at the end of the Clinton administration, but Bush has tripled that to $4 billion per year — and wants to more than double it over the next two years:
President Bush’s legacy is sure to be defined by his wielding of U.S. military power in Afghanistan and Iraq, but there is another, much softer and less-noticed effort by his administration in foreign affairs: a dramatic increase in U.S. aid to Africa. The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world’s most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 — to nearly $9 billion. …
Bush has increased direct development and humanitarian aid to Africa to more than $4 billion a year from $1.4 billion in 2001, according to the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. And four African nations — Sudan, Ethiopia, Egypt and Uganda — rank among the world’s top 10 recipients in aid from the United States.
So not only is John Kerry a hypocrite, he’s also an ignoramus. However, we have noticed that the Davos forum has become, over the years, a convention of sorts for both. Kerry should feel right at home.
UPDATE I: Via AllahPundit at HotAir:
He said this while seated next to the former CEO of one of the world’s foremost terrorist states, which as we speak is working on building nuclear weapons, bankrolling Hezbollah’s efforts to foment civil war in Lebanon and Hamas’s exterminationist jihad against Israel, and supplying Shiite militias with IEDs to kill American soldiers in Iraq. Whose current leadership, lest we forget, Kerry has previously signaled a desire to meet with. Note the bolded bit in the quote, too: given a direct choice between defending the president or siding with the Iranian government circa 2003 — whose nominal leader was, of course, Khatami himself — Lurch essentially chose the latter.
Then he signed an autograph for the pig. The same pig who, six months ago, defended executing gays for the crime of homosexuality.
For those who do not know what is a “pariah”. (Keep in mind, this is a man who wanted to be President of the United States. This is what he truly believes about our nation.)
I bet you haven’t heard about this in the major news today, have you? That is probably because they are having orgasms over the moonbats who have gathered in Washington, D.C. to urge our surrender in the war effort against Islamic Totalitarianism. You can go here to read about that if you’d like: New Anti-War Slogan: “Just Poop”
But I believe we now know why Senator John F. Kerry (D-MA) decided to not run for President in 2008. It seems the Democrats have elected him to be their point man on Anti-American rhetoric to undermine the United States and embolden our enemies. Since Senator Kerry is used to this kind of thing from his days with Winter Soldier and his testimony before Congress in 1971, it made complete sense.
For those of you who have had much better things to do this weekend than keep up with the number of American Congressmen who are betraying their country, Charles Johnson at LGF and Allahpundit at HotAir have the latest, including video at HotAir.
Here is Charles Johnson’s coverage: John Kerry with the Enemies of America
The man who was almost president shares a stage in Davos, Switzerland, with a rogue’s gallery of enemies, including the former president of Iran and his Iraqi puppet.
Nearly beyond belief. But this is John F. Kerry, doing what he does — giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America during wartime.
Amr Moussa, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Abdullah Gul, Foreign Minister of Turkey, Ahmed Mahmoud Nazif, Prime Minister of Egypt, Adil Abd al-Mahdi, Vice-President of Iraq, Mohammad Khatami, former President of Iran, and John Kerry, Senator from Massachussetts, U.S., from left, pose for a group photo after a plenary session on the Middle East during the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, Saturday, Jan. 27, 2007.

Here he is, giving the Ayatollah Khatami an autograph.
Former President of Iran Mohammad Khatami, right, shares a word with Senator from Massachusetts, USA, John Kerry after participating in a session ‘The Future of the Middle East’ at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Death to America!
John F. Kerry
UPDATE at 1/27/07 9:21:51 am:
More on this shameful appearance at The Political Pit Bull, who notes that Kerry called the US “an international pariah“ — while sitting on a stage with a representative of the world’s major state sponsor of terrorism.
UPDATE at 1/27/07 9:27:27 am:
More of Kerry’s appalling blast at his own country: Sen. Kerry Blasts U.S. Foreign Policy. (Hat tip: Killgore.)
(AP) DAVOS, Switzerland Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry slammed the foreign policy of the Bush administration on Saturday, saying it has caused the United States to become “a sort of international pariah.”
The statement came as the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee responded to a question about whether the U.S. government had failed to adequately engage Iran’s government before the election of hard-liner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2005. Kerry said the Bush administration has failed to adequately address a number of foreign policy issues.
“When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don’t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy,” Kerry said.
“So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East — in the world, really. I’ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”
Kerry said the government needs to use diplomacy to improve national security.
“We need to do a better job of protecting our interests, because after all, that’s what diplomacy is about,” he said. “But you have to do it in a context of the reality, not your lens but the reality of those other cultures and histories.”
Kerry criticized what he called the “unfortunate habit” of Americans to see the world “exclusively through an American lens.”
The outrageousness of Kerry’s statements is multiplied by the fact that he himself voted against the Kyoto Protocol — as did every single member of Congress. This was not a Bush decision — it was a unanimous decision of the United States government.
UPDATE at 1/27/07 9:44:51 am:
As for Kerry’s comment that the Bush administration is “irresponsibly slow” in providing AIDS help to Africa, the money is indeed stopped right now — because of Democrat budget wrangling. (Hat tip: Killgore.)
