Welcome back Bush and Cheney! Dems missed ya

Democrats are sure happy to see Cheney in the headlines lately. It’s giving them a chance to rehash the mess he and his puppet Bush got this country in before Obama took over as president.

Kinda like a campaign gift. Republicans are using the bad economy to attack Obama, but when national attention gets shifted back to what their party accomplished in eight years under Bush and Cheney, it’s not a good thing for them.

Remember the 70s sitcom “Welcome Back Kotter?”

The show starred comedian Gabe Kaplan as the title character Gabe Kotter, a wisecracking teacher who returns to his high school alma mater—the fictional James Buchanan High in Brooklyn, New York—to teach an often unruly group of remedial wiseguys known as the "Sweathogs".

The popular theme song, "Welcome Back", written and recorded by former Lovin' Spoonful frontman John B. Sebastian, became a #1 hit in the spring of 1976. The show was originally going to be called Kotter, but that was changed because of the theme song lyrics. Sebastian has said he tried to find a more general theme for the song after being unable to find any reasonable rhymes for Kotter.

Remember when Duyba and Cheney ruled the land?

Their reality show gave us Iraq, lies about weapons of mass destruction, Kuwait, Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, an unregulated Wall Street which nearly collapsed after Bush left office, and Cheney’s favorite negotiating tool “waterboarding.”

The premise was that Bush and Cheney wanted to protect America after the horrific 9/11 attach by taking away our individual freedoms. Not all at once. He phased things in as puppet-master (and real ruler) Cheney advised him to. During their eight year regime the good times rolled…for the wealthy that is.

I tried to find a theme song that would reflect their eight-year long show, like Kotter’s, and this is what I came up with:

Bush And Cheney - Planet dance Maniacs

Once again, the Democratic Party thanks Bush and Cheney for popping up in conversation about the current economy.
