Adieu Bush

“An interesting phenomena taking place here in America about the French … a backlash against the French, not stirred up by anybody except the people.” – George W. Bush, March 2003

They say this other guy is unpatriotic, or this guy likes French people. That’s what they said about Kerry (…) They try to make it out like Democrats aren’t tough enough, aren’t macho enough. It’s the same strategy.” – Barack Obama, August 18, 2008. Sources: IHTFOXNewsABC News

  1. It is revealing how he inmediately tried to cover up the government’s involvement. Saying “not stirred up by anybody except the people” is just like saying “I didn’t do it! I swear!”

    I guess it was his guilty conscience — although he’s got enough innocent lives on it for a lifetime.

  2. I am encouraged that even around here, in Oklahoma, persons of the far right political bent are acting encouraged and thankful that Obama is now in charge. I even got an appology for French-bashing from a lifelong right wing Republican!
    Looks like it may very well be a new day!

  3. You know, this whole Roquefort thing is actually quite flattering. You’d think that after his mandate, he’d attempt to take revenge against Democrats, or against anti-war activists… but no, it had to be on the French!

    We must have been depriving the poor, poor man of much sleep…

  4. I was never a fan of roquefort, so the tarif increase won’t hurt me.  However, you can see the pettiness in Bush by the increase.  One last kick to the French before he leaves office.  Scumbag.

    So glad he’s  G ON E 🙂

    Now, if he had increased tariffs on French wine….!!!!

  5. When I went to the US, I really missed my fromage de chèvre. They didn’t really have anything equivalent, only some muck which they passed off as “French goat cheese”…
