The Ostroy Report

The Ostroy Report is a fresh, aggressive voice for Democrats and a watchdog of the GOP/Tea Party. We support President Obama and the Democratic agenda and seek to preserve the Senate majority while taking back the House. But we're also not afraid to criticize the left when necessary.

Is There An Inept, Crooked and/or Racist Politician or Bureaucrat that George "Heckuva Job" Bush Won't Defend? Here's Our Top 10


He is arguably the worst president in the history of these great United States, which is why it's no surprise that George W. Bush gravitates to others who are miserable failures as well, lavishing them with praise instead of admonishment.

There seems to be no wrong that anyone Republican can do to reap the wrath of this president. He is clearly most comfortable with, and least threatened by, those he deems even more inept than he. So he stands by them, in some sort of convoluted, dysfunctional fraternal gesture, as if somehow their misdeeds make him appear any less the colossal failure Americans now deem him to be.

It all formally began with "Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job," to former FEMA head Michael Brown after the inept bureaucrat clearly spent more time pondering what clothes to wear rather than how to rescue dying people in Katrina's aftermath. Though the list of losers-who-get-Bush's-love can seem endless, here's our Top Ten:

"Harriet, you're doing a heckuva job"...as my crony trying to become the next Supreme Court Justice without a lick of any Constitutional law background and without an ability to articulate a coherent judicial position. (Harriet Miers, White House Counsel)

"Donny, you're doing a heckuva job"...destroying Iraq and overseeing the most pathetic prosecution of a war this country has ever seen. (Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, whom he continues to faithfully defend)

"Condi, you're doing a heckuva job"...lying about what we knew and when about al Qaeda and bin Laden's plans to use airplanes to attack America. (Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, whom he promoted from National Security Advisor even though she failed to protect the nation from terrorist attack)

"Tom, you're doing a heckuva job"...rigging elections and using the U.S. House of Representatives as your personal mob hangout. (former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, whom Bush consistently defended)

"Jack, you're doing a heckuva job"...as the country's poster boy for Washington corruption. (convicted former GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, seen in White House photos with the president, and who had 485 White House contacts)

"Dick, you're doing a heckuva job"...lying to the American public on just about everything that flies out of that sniveling, fork-tongued crooked mouth of yours. (Vice President Dick Cheney, America's Darth Vader)

"Denny, you're doing a heckuva job"...not keeping D.C.'s underage pages safe from middle-aged Republican sexual predators. (House Speaker Dennis Hastert, whom Bush continues to defend against charges of cover-up in the Mark Foley scandal)

"George, you're doing a heckuva job"...making insensitive, insulting, racist remarks. (Sen. George "Macaca" Allen, whom Bush on Thursday called a "good man of strong principles" during a desperate campaign stop in Virginia)

"Don, you're doing a heckuva job"...cheating on your wife with a mistress who claims you beat her. (Rep. Don Sherwood (PA), who recently admitted to having an extramarital affair, and who Bush strongly embraced during a Pennsylvania campaign stop Thursday, enthusiastically telling supporters: "I’m pleased to be here with Don Sherwood: he is the right man to represent the people of the 10th Congressional District from the state of Pennsylvania."

Perhaps in my lifetime we'll someday see President Bush actually demand accountability from the legions of inept, corrupt failures he currently puts on an undeserved pedestal. I won't hold my breath....

    I simply can't resist this....but, "Andy, you really ARE doing one heckuva job!"

    And I REALLY appreciate it!

    Can you check out www.tbrnews.org and see if the numbers they're giving, (15,000 US servicepeople dead, and about 27,000 injured in Iraq), are correct, please?
    Wouldn't surprise me if the Pentagon have "massaged' the numbers in a downward direction.

    And then there's Georgie himself who he looks at in the mirror each morning and says, "Saddle up, Cowboy! You gotta come up with more fantasies and pretend you're a president!"

    Lewt's not forget J. Kenneth Blackwell, Ohio's Secretary of State! He culled Democrats only from the voting rolls, insured long lines in Democrat and college precincts for the 2004 election, and now has stooped to gay-baiting his opponent, Ted Strickland!

    Has anyone heard that the GOP is giving Democrats HIV to stop them from voting?

    Those brownshirts really know how to keep us on our knees....

    4:10 From your comment I presume you got on your knees for a Republican and thus contracted HIV, but I assure you there are very very few other Democrats who will have sex with them so the Republicans are wasting their time trying.

    Ostroy, it's a shame to see your blog comments getting filled with such silliness as it is, and especially from those only ever able to post anonymously.

    But since your first post asked (in a repost from another comment section), I'll step in to say that tbrnews.org is a site that nobody should rely on for anything, unless of course you happen to be a neo-Nazi looking for companionship with like-minded knuckle-draggers.

    TBRNews.org is a website that says it "originally came from the Barnes Review" but is now "under different management." However, its website continues to offer links to websites that sell Nazi memorabilia and promote books by authors including British Holocaust denier David Irving.

    Oct. 18, 2004 — American Sex Lives 2004, a new "Primetime Live" sex poll conducted in conjunction with the ABC News Polling Unit, is among the most comprehensive surveys of its kind in decades and establishes a new, detailed picture of sex attitudes and behavior in America today.

    The "Primetime Live" sex poll answers many provocative questions that we have all wondered about, but have never dared to ask, including: how many Americans describe themselves as sexually "traditional" or "adventurous"; how often are Americans having sex; what are the sex habits of cheaters; and who is cheating with their co-worker and who is cheating in the workplace.

    The poll analysis includes a breakdown by many subgroups, including region, age and even political party affiliation, which is the topic of results released today:

    Of those involved in a committed relationship, who is very satisfied with their relationship?
    Republicans — 87 percent; Democrats — 76 percent

    Who is very satisfied with their sex life?
    Republicans — 56 percent; Democrats — 47 percent

    The poll analysis also reveals who has worn something sexy to enhance their sex life:
    Republicans — 72 percent; Democrats — 62 percent

    When asked whether they had ever faked an orgasm, more Democrats (33 percent) than Republicans (26 percent) said they had.

    Among the factors that impact the survey results is that more men identify themselves as Republicans and men are more likely to say they are sexually satisfied and enjoy sex "a great deal." Also, Democrats are more likely to be women; and the poll results show that women are more likely to fake orgasms.

    The American Sex Lives 2004 survey was conducted by telephone August 2-9, 2004, among a random, anonymous, national sample of adults 18-99 years old. The results have a 2.5-point error margin for all respondents; as in any poll, sampling error is higher for subgroups.

    Perhaps Bush is defending these corrupt polititians because he is as corrupt as they are.

    I hope you've "been" wiser in other days when you hopefully had the sense to be specific instead of throwing out general, meaningless insults.
