Since when did they change the definition of change?

Yes, that’s right, it’s time to play Name That Politician!  Your goal is to read the following quotes and decide which of the following politicians made the statements.  The winner gets a Zima and a Crystal Pepsi

“Let’s have an American foreign policy that reflects American character.  The modesty of true strength.  The humility of real greatness.”

“I’m not sure that the role of the United States is to go around the world and say, ‘This is the way it’s got to be.’  I think that one way for us to be viewed as the ‘Ugly American’ is for us to go around the world saying, ‘We do it this way, so should you'”

“We should be proud and confident in our values but humble in how we treat nations that are figuring out how to chart their own course.”

“I want to change the tone of Washington”

“I will lead our nation towards a culture that values life”

Make your choice now:

If you said John McCain, please take a toaster to the bathtub and make some waffles while you shower.  You lose.

If you said Barack Obama, please take your lips off of his ass and put them onto the tailpipe of a running vehicle.  You fail.

The correct answer here is Governor Bush.  These quotes are from speeches he made back in 2000 and 2001.  It’s just interesting to me to hear this stuff then think of what I’ve been hearing from the current candidates for the last 20 months.  It’s pretty much the same stuff.  It’s so easy to forget that just 8 years ago, Bush ran on a platform of changing Washington and getting rid of the corruption.  We see how that went.

Don’t believe the hype.
