Finally, the Bush in-crowders figured, what's the use of being BMOC's on the world stage, if you can't throw your weight around and torment those you don't like? So the GWB in-crowd called in the jocks, who spent six of the next years beating the living crap out those they were told “had it coming.”
( "When conservatives have the club in their hands, no one is more sadistic. When the club is removed, no one is more whiney." Glenn Greenwald )
I only mention all this high schooll la-de-da because these former conservative in-crowders and their toadies at FOX went berserk (berserker than usual) last week because Obama had the audacity to smile and shake hands with (gasp) Venezuela's loudmouth president, Hugo Chavez. Obama's crime? He broke in-crowder rule numero uno by talking to an out-crowder.
Look, these guys, the GWB in-crowders, turned American foreign and domestic policies into 8-year episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 and Mean Girls. During their terms they didn't earn a single dime, but lived high off Daddy's credit cards, (that would be the taxpayer's credit card.)
Like pissy high school girls, they refused to talk to anyone who didn't first agree to agree with them.
By the time graduation finally rolled around last November, the GWB crowd had managed to bankrupt America High and manage to convice a startlingly large hunk of the world they no longer wanted to talk to us either.
So, when you hear one of these down and out conservative dead-enders howling that “Obama is weakening America,” because he is willing to smile and talk to anyone willing to do the same, consider the source.
