Miss me yet? – well it depends on who you mean

george bush miss me yet

Notice they don’t use a picture of Kevin in our local “Miss Me Yet?” meme. But the absurdity of these people, not only in their lack of originality but in where they take their imagery from, is astounding. Personally, I don’t miss the boats, the debt, the waste, the shrillness or the policies. On the other hand, I do miss George Bush.

    So long as the RC doesn’t miss her, I’m happy.

  2. Infidel Tiger

    The Liberal Party should put that on billboards.

    Seeing her horrible bonce reminds me what an horrendous lying tart we used to have as PM.

    Abbott might suck arse, but he is somewhat of an improvement.

  3. Cato the Elder

    Yes, I did miss her. Next time I’ll allow more for windage.

    (Not a death threat)

  4. Cato the Elder

    Oh; and they tried the same meme with Bligh up here in Queensland. Failed then and I expect it will fail this time too.

  5. Oh come on

    Miss her? God, no. Although I most certainly rue the fact that her great rival and eventual replacement* is turning out to be little better than her.

    *no, not Rudd 2.0, who was a brief aberration borne of her incompetence)

  6. I miss Julia like a hole in the head. Ah, those were the days!

  7. James of the Glen

    I had no idea they’d put her away. When did the RC start?

  8. nic

    The difference between a turd and Julia Gillard? You can flush a turd away after you think you have wiped it from memory.

  9. Oh come on

    Abbott might suck arse, but he is somewhat of an improvement.

    Agree, but the difference is mainly in style. Their political instincts and ambitions are proving remarkably similar. To an extent that I didn’t even realise until yesterday when they handed down the budget.

  10. Dr.Sir Fred Lenin

    How arrogant these total failures are,they stuff everything they touch ,and go thru life chanting “i av dun nuffink rong”? You will notice I am a Doctor now,an honorary degree I got for my Dedication to the Pardee from Preston Tech,gotta keep up with gilliard she got one from Footscray Tech ,for her services th “Edyoukayshun” ? Now who on earth takes these people seriously? They are as corrupt aeps the untidy nayshuns.

  11. brc

    Don’t talk to us about missing Julia Gillard – we were denied the opportunity to even vote for her. It was the Labor party itself who decided to remove her – voters didn’t get a say.

    Talk about making a hash of a simple social media meme.

  12. Oh come on

    I’m still grappling with the sheer stupidity of perfidious Abbott’s $20 billion leftist slush fund. Can you imagine it? A few million here to investigate the effects of Climate Change on the efficacy of paracetamol, a few million there investigating (and no doubt discovering) a link between jurisdictions that permit SSM, and lower healthcare costs, longer life expectancy etc…

    Slightly OT but:

    Tony Abbott threatens new election if Senate frustrates budget (The Australian):

    “I can’t believe that they will try to completely frustrate the business of government because if there was an election again, hardly any of them would win their seats.”

    Which seats?
    Crap.

    From previous, KRudd would make mince meat of this budget (know your enemy).

  15. Senile Old Guy

    Abbott is in la-la land. The coalition would get punished. The Greens, ALP and PUP would be seen as defending the poor, etc. Fuel excise (which now may not make it) would hit everyone and the Gesture Tax will turn of some supporters.

    But perhaps I’m wrong.

  16. jupes

    I miss her brilliant performance as a comedian. Who can forget her hilarious appointment, then non-appointment, then appointment of Carr as Foreign Minister for example.

    She also brought out the best in others. Remember Shorten’s audition for Monty Python when he had no idea what TLS said but agreed with it anyway.

    What about Emmo and his ‘No Whyalla Wipout’.

    Hilarious. Not like this boring current mob.

  17. Nicholas E

    Who doesn’t yearn for the days of lax credit standards aimed at increasing minority home ownership and pointless foreign adventure?

  18. Big_Nambas

    I miss throwing things at my TV when she was on, meant I always had a new TV.
    The ONLY way to fix the mess is a Double Dissolution Election, either the punters are smart enough to get the Green/PUP out and the Libs have a majority in both houses or their not.
    I am reminded of my Grandfathers favourite saying. ” you will never go broke UNDERESTIMATING the intelligence of the average Australian voter”.
    So I’m not optimistic.

  19. philip j. fry

    Is she asking us, or the Labor Party?

    Does anyone seriously think she could do a better job than Bill the Knife?

  20. Tim

    No! Reuben the dog doesn’t either.

  21. Mater

    How could I? She left so many reminders…more than 400,000,000,000 of them!

  22. entropy

    There was a similar a john a Howard one, but it said something along e lines of how the change was working out for everyone. He was hooking into champagne, enjoying his retirement.

  23. will

    Who doesn’t yearn for the days of lax credit standards aimed at increasing minority home ownership and pointless foreign adventure?

    The Community Reinvestment Act was a Clinton initiative. Bush was unable to repeal this as he faced a hostile Congress.

    Tell how pointless it is to have a terrorist training camp free Afganistan?

    Comment of the day!

    Fighting al Qaida was a good idea but if you let the mission go out of control, it is just a waste.

    I know Bush spoke up about the CRA etc in 2005. He should have pushed harder, but likely, the damage was done.

  26. Jeno

    Yes I miss Julia Gillard ! She cared about all Australians,she cared about Education and Health,she cared about Pensioners, she cared about the sick and disabled,she cared about the enviroment,she cared about the poor.We now have a PM who cares about the big miners,he cares about big business,he cares about the rich,he cares about superannuation fund managers,he cares about financial planners,he cares about the big four banks and finally he really just cares about the liberal ideology!

  27. H B Bear

    Thanks Jeno. Tell us how it makes you feel.

  28. Toiling Mass

    When I saw the picture of that cerumenophage, Rudd, with his hand to his ear my first thought was that he should not play with his food.

  29. .

    jeno – you are a deluded fool whingeing about getting the socialism you want.

    Gillard cared about education and health by taking money out of universities.
    She cared about health by appointing the wife of a drug dealer as health minister.
    She cared about pensioners by upping the price of energy.
    She cared about the sick and disabled by creating a bureacracy to employ heavily unionised workers.
    She cared about the poor by depressing labour productivity to the slowest rate of growth since 1991.

    Miners employ people and pay an unfair share of taxes.
    Abbott doesn’t care about big business, slugging them with the costs of the PPL.
    Abbott is taxing the rich to pay for his increased spending.
    If he cared about super fund managers, he’s supporting union graft and crimes.
    I don’t think anyone cares about financial planners.
    Abbott is making banks pay for everyone else’s PPL.

    Abbott’s first budget has virtually nothing to do with “liberal ideology”. It is socialism writ large.

  30. Senile Old Guy

    Actually…

    However, for whatever reason, the Government’s planned company tax cut, paid parental leave scheme and the proposed 1.5 per cent levy on big business to fund the leave scheme have been left in the contingency reserve, rather than costed individually in detail in the budget.

  31. James of the Glen

    Jeno, practise making cakes. Ones with hollow centres.

  32. nic

    She cared because she said she did. That’s enough for lefties to weave a narrative. Already she’s invented herself as the Boadacea of girl’s education. Who knew? She certainly didn’t need to do anything concrete.

  33. Jeno

    You are the fool no name! All the increased tax to Big Business and the wealthy is temporary but the cuts and increased payments to the poor is forever!

  34. Ant

    I miss her the same way the good people in that Rooty Hill RSL missed her.

    She was there but she wasn’t. Which meant they could enjoy their dinner.

  35. kae

    For Gillard and Rudd I believe the correct response is:

    “Repeat! Repeat! Repeat!”

  36. Infidel Tiger

    and finally he really just cares about the liberal ideology!

    If only that were true.

    Abbott is the best socialist PM you’ll ever have. Enjoy it while you can, shitlips.

  37. .

    All the increased tax to Big Business and the wealthy is temporary but the cuts and increased payments to the poor is forever!

    No. The PPL will be paid by businesses over a certain threshold. The miners already pay over 40% tax.

    Increased payments to the poor is forever? As a mooching socialist idiot, what are you complaining about?

    Anyone who seriously liked Rudd or Gillard probably has a personality disorder. I know lifelong ALP voters who voted LNP or spoilt their ballots as to never vote for these spivs.

    Figures really – why would the working class vote for the husband of a woman who owns a multinational labour hire firm, dependent on Commonwealth subsidies, or vote for a woman who orchestrated massive frauds against unions whom she worked for (AWUWRA scandal) and stole off the Kalgoorlie Goldfields Orphans and Widows fund, again as a union lawyer?

  38. Mater

    Jeno,
    After all of these so-called tough measures, we still have a $30bn deficient this coming year. That means that, not only will we not make any headway into the half trillion dollars (approx) worth of debt, we are actually adding to it.
    I suggest that you sit down and let the severity of this situation sink in.

  39. jupes

    … but the cuts and increased payments to the poor is forever!

    LOL

    Good one Jeno.

  40. Senile Old Guy

    PhD student and economics lecturer John Humphreys, the deputy director of the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance, says his calculations show the levy is likely to raise less than half of the $3.1 billion forecast by Treasury.

    “When you factor in mainstream behavioural responses from evidence around the world, the deficit levy or deficit tax is likely to raise less than half of what they’ve claimed, and potentially nothing at all,” he told ABC News Online.

    Mr Humphreys worked for Treasury in its revenue modelling department around a decade ago, and has based his analysis on economic modelling that factors in the behavioural changes that high income individuals might make in response to an increase in the top tax rate – behavioural changes that he argues Treasury has ignored in its estimates.

  43. GerardB

    I miss GW Bush

    the other two will never be missed because they are so well hidden.

  44. As I said elsewhere, in order for the “Miss me yet?” meme to work, the new guy has to be not only as bad as, but significantly worse than their predecessor. I think Gillard supporters are out of their mind if they think voters miss her – especially given that they never elected her in the first place.

    Indeed, as disappointing as Abbott has been, the Libs could post those Gillard pics around in 3 years time, and it would probably ensure a landslide Abbott victory for a second term.

    You probably mistook her for that Van Badham sheila – though from her recent photos don’t know how you could throw so wide as to miss her.

    Only if you are into missing eel-faced sl**** ooops I nearly succumbed to the temptation of saleyard talk. I’ll try again only if you miss eel-faced unworthies.

  48. Tintarella di Luna

    She cared about all Australians,she cared about Education and Health,she cared about Pensioners, she cared about the sick and disabled,she cared about the enviroment,she cared about the poor.

    That’s gotta be a pisstake!!! She could not give a a broadacred crap about anybody but herself. I have had up-close and personal business with Ms Gillard. She is as fake as a three-dollar bill except it’s worth more. Ms Gillard would have pulverised her integrity to get traction on the greasy pole of Labor ambition but she had none, so she used the good old ‘we R us’ Labya val-youz instead – whatever it takes.

    The reason I have such little regard for Ms Gillard is she was unworthy, she knew she was unworthy but wanted the prize anyway.

  49. Fibro

    Jeno, are you and Numbers having scones together again? Dreaming about the days of equality for all, the farming land that we shared with our neighbours……….oops that was another land wasn’t it Jeno.

    Even they understand that the guvernent would take some of the crop to pay for the things you needed and that no one else would look after them but themselves, but for some reason they don’t get it in a free world.

    “Ms Gillard would have pulverised her integrity to get traction on the greasy pole of Labor ambition but she had none, so she used the good old ‘we R us’ Labya val-youz instead – whatever it takes.”

    Well it has been said that there might’ve been a bit of that but was it that that got her to the top? as distinct from getting to the middle?

    The Hyperbowl Princess probably got to know the inner workings of the AWU pretty well from former boyfriend and then-AWU rising star Wilson.

    And Big Bill Ludwig pulled the litigation against them and in fact went on to throw Labor Right AWU support behind life long Fabian leftist JEG.

    Suggests to me that contrary to the view that Ludwig owned her, there is a degree of mutually-assured incrimination.

    This obviously did not hurt her career in the medium term.

  54. Tel

    This wouldn’t be such an issue if those shoe throwers had been a bit more accurate.

    And Vegemite throwers…

  55. H B Bear

    And Big Bill Ludwig pulled the litigation against them and in fact went on to throw Labor Right AWU support behind life long Fabian leftist JEG.

    I have never understood that myself.

    Gillard was as hard-Left as the ALP throws up. Normally the party goes out of their way to lop them off before the top as even they realise the damage they can do.

  56. His Omniscience

    Kates doesn’t miss the debt yet he misses George W Bush, apparantly. While some might thus been inclined to conclude that what Kates is really missing is the part of the brain labelled ‘consistency’, I at least see a consistent bias in his ramblings – evidence is consistently interpreted (or misinterpreted as the case more often is) to support his ideological and political predispositions.

  57. srr

    The worst thing Gillard did, was to not knife, gut, dismember and feed to the sharks on our north, south, east and west coasts, the putrid remains of Tanya Plibersek.

  58. wal1957

    Bush appeared to be a bumblimg idiot.
    Gillard is the worst PM OZ has ever had, and certainly the most divisive IMHO.

    Krudd, I had the displeasure to meet while I was working. I have never come across anyone who was so self-centred, his ego far outweighed his ability. He had the honour of being OZ’s worst PM…until Gillard arrived on the scene!

    These comments remind me ofa Triple J top 100 movies of all time listeners poll list, which had nothing more than a decade old!
    Compared to McMahon, Rudd and Gillard were excellent PMs.
