Bush Billboard In Minn.: 'Miss Me Yet?'

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ― Former President George W. Bush has returned on a Minnesota billboard funded by some people who aren't happy with the way things are going in Washington.


The billboard's tagline: "Miss me yet?"

Office manager Beverly Master of Schubert and Hoey Outdoor Advertising in Minneapolis says the message was purchased by a group of small business owners and people from the Twin Cities area who want to remain anonymous.

Master says the billboard went up at the end of December overlooking Interstate 35 in Wyoming, Minn., and is scheduled to stay up until at least the end of February. She says her company, which owns the billboard, has not done any others like it.

Wyoming Mayor Sheldon Anderson calls the billboard "rather clever" but says he doesn't know who's behind it.

    I admit, it made me laugh... because the idea of wishing for a return of the Bush Administration is completely ludicrous. Many Americans might be masochists, but I'm not one of them.

    I was watching Big Love last night, and Bill (Pullman) is running for office and they were handing out bags with big elephants on them.

    I just got a chuckle out of that. Of COURSE the polygamist man who takes turns with his 3 wives would be a Republican.

    My father sent an email with that billboard. I was going to respond back to him, but didn't.

    I really do think many people have short short memory spans. My husband was complaining about the financial mess and blamed it on Obama (this was like 6 months ago). I tried to get him to remember that when we were purchasing our house in October '08 was when a lot of this started...before Obama got elected.

    The Teabaggers are either intellectually-challenged or disingenuous. They had their one year anniversary. Let's see a year ago, Obama was in his 2nd month of office. Let's see...Bush put us in two very expensive wars, one of which was very very very unpopular and proven to be wrong. Bush approved of a tax cut for the top 1 percent of the richest. Hmmmmmm....let's see.
    Obama wants us to gradually get out of Iraq; Obama wants us to spend our money on something positive like saving people's lives (health care), rather than killing people (Iraqis and our soldiers).
    Yeah, Obama is the bad guy here. Republican politicians are notorious for screwing over the middle class. This isn't new. They fight against civil rights for people. They try to keep the masses ignorant with Faux News and the right-wing radio shows. It's disgusting.
    And yet, Bush is now being seen as the good guy here? Really? Wow!
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    That's so interesting — the same critique from both sides. Remember the Patriot Act? I could easily see the same billboard during Bush 2.

    Everyone in this country needs take a happy pill.

    Perhaps I misread your tone in your earlier reply. It looked to me as if you were solely focused on W, whereas I was not at all focused solely on Obama. My point is neither side is guiltless.

    And I tend to use this :rolleyes: when I am trying to convey bemusement. If I wanted to be sarcastic or b1tchy, I wouldve used this :roll: . Sorry for the confusion. :toothy5:

    I thought the billboard was hilarious, and If I were to compare the lesser of evils Bush vs. Obama, I would have say I do miss bush lol :hello2: not only is obama carrying on torch of increase deficit hes beating Bush to a bloody pulp by quadrupling the deficit in the trillions and counting and obama can't blame bush for that he did it all by his dayum self:angry1: :cussing::thumbdown:
  • PoodleheadPoodlehead Posts: 6,959Registered Users
    Gosh, you're right, I hate it when a President takes a country that is in fine fiscal shape with no extreme security issues and turns it into a disaster!

    Oh, wait, it was Bush who did that. And left Obama with the pieces.

    I'm convinced no one really wanted to win that election in 2008. They knew what a ----hole they were inheriting.

    Bush destroyed the integrity of the United States around the world. He constantly engaged in unilateral decision making and gave the United Nations a giant middle finger. The irony is that he campaigned on restoring integrity to the White House after the Clinton affair/impeachment.

    Bush aligned himself with the religious right and tried forcing Christian principles down the throats of every American. He leaves office and asked if the Bible was literally true. “You know. Probably not. …" Meanwhile years of stem cell research was suspended because it violated God's law.

    Bush sat in a classroom for over eight minutes while the United States was under attack. He sat there because he knew he was way over his head in the job of President. Bush had no idea what to do. Meanwhile Americans were burning and jumping to their deaths.

    Bush inherited a robust economy, deficit spent, and nearly wrecked the entire US capitalist system in eight years.

    Bush wiretapped, tortured, and repeatedly violated the civil rights of innocent, law biding Americans.

    Bush should be the reason the Republican party is imploded and replaced by the Libertarians.

    I totally agree with you, TG, so don't think I'm contesting your point. But I've always been confused by the bolded as a criticism of Bush. I've always thought, well...at that point, when the towers were burning, what could Bush really do? I assume that the other flights leaving that day had already been stopped, intelligence bureaus were already in the process of looking for suspects, etc. Am I missing something?

    I definitely wonder why Bush hasn't received more criticism for essentially ignoring the Clinton administration's warnings about Al-Qaeda. If he hadn't, there'd be no reason for people to harp on about how he just sat in that classroom...

    I think there's a real perception out there in America that our president should actually be, you know, Commander in Chief of our armed forces. When Bush was informed of the possible attack, shouldn't he have gotten up or something? Taken charge? Manned the battlestations? Anything but continue reading My Pet Goat.

    I think at least half of America thinks that Bush f*cked up royally with ignoring the threat of Al Qaeda. The middle eastern countries mostly already hated us prior to that, but Bush succeeded in making the rest of the world hate us too. We've criticized him for it. Remember the "I'm sorry world" website where millions of Americans recorded "I'm sorry" messages when Bush was re-elected in 2004? Many of us have been very ashamed to be Americans for a very long time now.

    Nah, I don't hold Bush's immediate inaction upon learning about the Sept. 11 attacks against him. I'd have sympathy for anyone facing such a situation. And besides, the problem is the action that he did wind up taking.

    Also, for those of you who've seen Curb Your Enthusiasm: a very short video.
