Scamalot shows ideology reigns supreme over reality

The President’s scandal explosions (that is, Scamalot) show one thing: for the left, ideology reigns supreme.

This is because the apologists and true believers are disinclined to contemplate the obvious, yet painful, truth that the Barack Obama’s presidency has been inferior to that of George W. Bush. Was the Bush presidency superior in literally (not Biden-speak) every way possible? No, but close.

That’s because the magnitude of the Bush blunders (that is, Iraq, the FEMA/Katrina debacle, Homeland Security, the return to deficits, bailouts, and the prescription drug benefit) can’t be waived away.

However, as far as government credibility, the economy, jobs, still bigger bailouts, labor force participation, crony capitalism, national security, foreign policy, world standing, the education system, the debt, the deficit, the always-on super-stalking surveillance state, health care, the IRS, press freedoms, entitlement programs, the regulatory state, extra-Constitutional activities of every sort, national infrastructure, etc., our nation is worse off than we were under George W. Bush.

The left asserts—in the absence of proof—that things have improved with Obama.

The evidence—reality—shows otherwise. While the left is still much enamored with Obama, it should now be clear why: he had the liberal, biracial bona fides they wanted in a candidate and on the ballot, possessed a parenthetical “D” by his name.

The Bush bad, Obama great mythology is demonstrably false. Sadly, a more accurate assessment is this: Bush not good, Obama far worse.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
