What if Bush Did What Obama Has Done?

I wonder how the liberal left would have reacted if:

If George W. Bush had made sure he appeared on as many television shows as possible, including the Jay Leno Tonight Show. . .

If George W. Bush, while on television with Jay Leno, had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics . . .

If George W. Bush had demanded the removal of Winston Churchill's bust from the White House . . .

If George W. Bush had given Tony Blair a set of inexpensive and useless (to Tony Blair's UK video formatting) DVDs, when Tony Blair had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift . . .

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches . . .

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia . . .

If George W. Bush had mispronounced "Orion" when using the firm as an example of innovation in a speech . . .

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language" . . .

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who turned out to be a bunch of tax cheats . . .

If George W. Bush promised to reject lobbyists in his cabinet, then appointed lobbyists throughout his cabinet . . .

If George W. Bush had ordered the CEO of a major corporation to resign, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so . . .

If George W. Bush disregarded folks protesting (tea parties) his policies as minor irritations . . .

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year . . .

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years . . .

If the Bush Administration had allowed Air Force One to fly low over New York City while 9/11 remains fresh in the minds of New Yorkers . . .

If after promising transparency in government George W. Bush had refused to release the photographs of Air Force One flying over New York City . . .

If George W. Bush had claimed tax cuts for family's earning less than $250,000 per year, and then the fiscal budget set the income threshold at $200,000 per year . . .

If George W. Bush had called Democrats "bitter" . . .

If George W. Bush's Department of Homeland Security had released a report calling liberals "leftwing extremists," and possible "domestic terrorists" . . .

===

So, please help me understand how Obama is so brilliant and impressive.

And this is only the first few months - We still have three years and nine months to go!
