Just to Jog Your Mind

In the Interest of Equal time and Fairness.

A lot has been written lately about President Bush exercising too much. I have never before witnessed such childlike ridiculing of a decent man .

I know America though, and her citizens can recognize 'piling on' when they see it. Wait until the next election, you'll see what happens when the American people think someone is getting piled on.

Some of the things the party out of power says about our LEADER, are obtrusively childish, and asinine.

The Honorable Senator, Ted Kennedy made some comments about working out and the Presidency.

I started investigating and found out that Teddy is a exercise freak himself. So in fairness I want to include his picture here. It is a picture of him jogging, and to jog your minds, I again post a picture of the President jogging.

You also can find this picture on an earlier blog entry of mine that generated a lot of comments, both good and bad. But hey, that's what I like about Sanity's Bluff.

If you would like to revisit that blog, it is called What is sacrifice?

Could you make the Kennedy picture a little bigger please, I didn't quite lose my dinner yet?

(I'm hoping you got my sarcasism, that's the one thing I hate about writing is my sarcasm rarely comes throught. But anyways...)

I apolagize for bombarding you're comment section, but I forgot to ask who's writing about Bush exercising too much, I've seemed to miss that. Now critizing him for taking a five week vacation, there's plenty of that (and rightfully so).

Blogger booklover9191 said...

Hey...I gotta admire Kennedy's courage...LOL!

No secrets here!

Blogger web_loafer said...

Scooter, I must agree with you. How can the Senate, House and President leave their jobs for 5 weeks.....wish I had a job with 5 weeks vacation.
Oh I forgot, I do, I get 5 weeks vacation each year, but the people I work for won't let me take more than 3 weeks in a row.

I can imagine how it must feel to be eating sand in Iraq, and wishing you had a weekend of R&R, then hearing that all the government is on vacation.

Don't these pol's know the image they are portraying?

Yes, the president can do all of his job at his ranch in Texas, but we sent him to Washington.

Now if G.W. really was compassionate, he would invite Ted to jog with him.
But please leave the cameras home.

And yes Booklover, that is courage. But, it is probably a papparatzi, picture. I haven't a clue how to spell that. I wouldn't want to go jogging in public myself. Clinton used to jog down to McDonalds, now there is a real person that I can relate to. But I would have sweats on, no jogging shorts.

Geeze, I wonder what that means about me. I had five weeks vacation a year when I retired.

And I'm sure glad someone wasn't there to take my picture by the swimming pool with my grandkids a couple of weeks ago.

Teddy and I must frequent the same donut shop.

Blogs About Children's Books When I started doing the About Children's Books blog , there weren't a lot of blogs on the subject.

I hope you don't mind. I stole your Teddy pic and put it on my blog. Also, a little constructive criticism from a writer (I can't help myself), childlike means innocence, trust, and ingenuousness. I think childish would be more appropriate -- spoiled, petulant and spiteful.

Blogger Lone Ranger said...

Scooter, shortly after the results of President Bush's physical was released, the DNC put out this snotty press release:

I get six weeks of vacation a year, but I'm an underworked, overpaid member of the media. I very much doubt Mr. Bush is putting his feet up while on the ranch. There's not a lot going on around here with the Supreme Court and Congress out of town. Given my druthers, I'd rather work from a ranch during the month of August too.

Blogger web_loafer said...

Lone Ranger, Thanks for commenting and I don't mind someone pointing out grammer or spelling errors. The truth is, I learn something each time someone does.

I just thought about another reason our President wants to take a working vacation at the ranch. There is no chance of running into Helen Thomas.

The thought just hit me, There is a perfect couple, Ted and Helen. My word, they were made for each other.

Blogger web_loafer said...

Once more thing Lone Ranger, I linked to Important Stuff--or Not. I like your style of writing, and noticed you have had to remove comments of others, and there is no way to leave comments about your writings. No problem, and I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a guest column in the future at Sanity's Bluff? If I get enough people to write for me, I can take a 5 week vacation from blogging. LOL

Blogger Jay said...

I wonder how much vacation time Bush has taken in comparison with other PRESIDENTS?

Peace or wartime.

Just curious.

Blogger booklover9191 said...

A lot it seems...honestly.

But damn...who could blame him!

What a mess everything is.

If I were gay that second picture would scare me straight.

Blogger OTTMANN said...

Did you read this article by Mark Steyn on Sunday? It's a riot!Democrats' new strategy: Almost winning

Blogger web_loafer said...

ottmann, thanks for the heads up on the article by Mark Steyn.

I recommend everyone taking the time to read Mark Steyn's article. Just use the link in ottmann's comment before this reply.

We are spending entirely too much time worrying about the loser's.
The Democrats have no answers for America,
No answers for The war on Terror,
or the price of gasoline.

My time is too valuable to spend it listening to Al Franken or Dean, H. Clinton or Kennedy.

I have to admit though, it would be a blast to go jogging with Ted K.......NOT

They never have to put out orange cones for me to jog.

Blogger Ryan Franklin said...

Hey loafer, I would be very much grateful for a disclaimer before posting (nude) images of that fat waste of a senate seat.

Blogger web_loafer said...

I'm sorry Ryan, I wasn't thinking straight at the time, and I'm not that good at disclaimers.

This article has a picture that could be disturbing to any taxpayer. What some people may think is a beached whale is actually an overpaid Senator, who should have had the decency to wear sweats when jogging. If you have had supper or it is near supper time do not scroll down the page to the pictures.
And by all means do not accept a ride in this Senator's Oldsmobile.

How many weeks vacation do you get a year?


Maybe we could have a weigh in with all the commenters comparing themselves to Teddy Boy. Then maybe we'll really find out who the beached whales are.

Blogger web_loafer said...

OH, did I step on your toe Phil? I am willing to get on a scale, but I am not a public servant. I like skinny public servants. It is the image thing, you know...."why old Newt has been spending too much time at the feed bucket of the taxpayers......"
I get 5 weeks vacation Phil, and enjoy every minute of it. Some of the drivers take cash in lieu of vacation, I never have, and never will.
One more thing Phil, do you suspect someone who comments here is slenderdeprived? OK who is it, we only want to help you, just step up to the plate....oops....I mean step up to the microphone, and give us a good ole whale song. But be careful and don't step on my toe.

Blogger Mr. T. said...

There are some sights you can't un-see. Senator Kennedy's, er, abundance, falls into that category.

Cool blog!

Blogger booklover9191 said...

Well...YOU are slender-deprived, web (you've said it yourself! LOL...along with a few more of us "old hippies"...LOL. Maybe that term in itself was a cosmic warn us of our rampant self-indulgences. Oh well. Boomers. Babies.

drats..........I've been outed.

slender deprived and enjoying it. Except when it is time to tie the shoes. And I haven't seen my belt buckle for years. I know its there, just can't see it. It used to be that the first thing that would touch a wall if I walked into it, would be my nose, now it is my stomach. Woe is me.
