Standing Ovations, Sold Out Crowds and 'Bring Back Bush'

President George Bush is enjoying the freedom of not being the President of the United States anymore, writing, giving lectures and touting his new book called "Decision Points."

Much to the dismay of those Bush Derangement Sufferers, Bush is looking more and more popular these days, receiving standing ovations, not once but three times during his latest lecture to a sold out crowd.

He walked on the stage to a standing ovation. People in the audience were pumping their fists and whistling. One audience member shouted, “Bring back Bush,” at one point during the presentation.

He would receive at least two more standing ovations before the end of his speech.

With every speech Barack Obama gives, with every law the Democrats pass against the majority of Americans opposed and with every appearance George Bush makes publicly, more and more people are missing the style of presidency that leant class to the position without hate filled speeches and partisan attacks coming directly from their president's mouth.

When voters handed the majorities to Democrats in the House and Senate during Bush's last term as president, Bush did not strike out at voters, he simply admitted "The election wasn't even close, Bush said. "It was a thumpin."

Obama on the other hand insults voters by declaring smugly and arrogantly that people are too "scared" to "think clearly."

The level of disrespect and disdain that Barack Obama shows towards voters that dare disagree with him and the decisions the Democratically controlled Congress and Senate have made, should not be a surprise to anyone that remembers that same disdain shown for his opponents to whom he referred to as bitter gun and religion clingers in 2008 before he was voted in as president.

And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

I might not have agreed with George Bush on a few issues but I do miss the respect he had for the people he served. His manner when talking about America and Americans, his level of civility for each and every person even when he disagreed with them or they opposed what he was doing.
