Lets get one thing straight! Michelle Obama is no way in the same league as George Bush. Michelle Obama is a welfare brat who used the system with her black privilege, she's a racist and everything out of her mouth is ignorant and divisive. That's even given the fact that George Bush was a bad President a RINO so that put Michelle Obama even lower that he is. BTW Michele Obama needs to spend some time with her messed up drug using daughter. So I guess that makes her a dead beat mom too.

6:07: Does your family know you have access to a computer at the memory care center?

Selective memory much 8:06? Michelle Obama was reared by a middle class intact family. W. was a brat enabled by his wealthy and connected family. Had he been forced to cope on his own, he would not have been able to avoid the draft and would probably wound up as a homeless drunk derelict on the streets of Midland, Texas.

Dear Michelle, love ya. But, I have a thing about lying your country into war and screwing up the prosecution of said war so badly that it wrecked the middle east and created Isis.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Once again Hyper you're full of shit!

The Middle East was fucked up and ISIS was created by the two REPUBLICAN invasions under Bush and Bush the Lesser!

Remember those Wars, Hyper? Probably not, they don't fit very well into your continuous anti-Democrat Squealing, but then there's a hell of a lot of Reality that doesn't fit the alt-Right Wingnut Mythology.

Hyper's in a memory care facility. There are many Republicans there who only have access to Fox News because no one can remember where the remote is.

9:59, are you referring to WMD's? First, that was just one of many justifications in Congress's authorization of military intervention in Iraq. Second, if the assertion that Iraq possessed WMD's was a lie, the same lie was told by Bill, Hillary, Biden and many others. It's what the CIA believed to be true, and senators, representatives and senior staff got the same briefing on the subject that the President did.

The war was not waged incompetently. The peace was. We should have just knocked down half the country and then told them straighten up, or we'll be back for the other half.
