Barack Obama is a "miserable failure"

I must admit that this is sweet revenge. A few years ago, tech savvy internet users with "Bush derangement syndrome" linked President Bushes bio with the Google search term "miserable failure." Now, the label has been transferred to President Barack Obama.
Google-Bombing Moves From Bush to Obama

By Marisa Taylor

Newly minted President Barack Obama has enough problems to tackle without a Google bomb getting thrown into the mix.

In 2003, haters of President George W. Bush with a mean streak and tech savvy managed to Google-bomb him as a “miserable failure” — meaning that a rash of users linked Bush’s name to the words “miserable failure” so that if the term was Googled, Web sites referencing him would show up higher in the search.

According to a Search Engine Land article, Obama is inheriting all the old links from Bush’s biography to the term “miserable failure” because the link to his biography was swapped for Bush’s on the White House site on Inauguration Day. As a result, a search for “miserable failure” on Yahoo will likely yield Obama’s biography, and on Google, a search for “failure” will do the same. Excerpted from blogs.wsj.com

I must admit that nobody cares.

Furthermore your amateur use of punctuation makes it obvious to anyone with a sixth-grader's education that you are not in any way an intellectual. You should have written "tech-savvy", "Bush Derangement Syndrome", "President Bush's", and "miserable failure" with the period outside of the quotation marks.

I will not, however, debate your identity as a redneck; I would win if I tried, but such a victory would be both pyrrhic and pointless.

The few unfortunate readers of this website should drink from the waters of a far deeper and far sweeter well:

I would think the proper words to tie Obama to would have been any of the following Crooked Chicago Politician (synonymous with liar-cheat-thief), Scoundrels, Scalawags or the best would have been false prophet. :-)

I'm glad to be far from the site of the Obama show.

This is true. The irony is it was done by Bush haters, but now it is attached to Barack Obama's name.

Redneck, pretty sure that Ian Schwantz guy is the basement dweller who broke into Sarah Palin's email.
from his blog:
"..still reeling. In my memory I can see Bush's green helicopter roaring over my head, and I did actually see it with my own eyes--my entire youth was spent under the domination of that savage; and as my adulthood is starting to begin I hope from the bottom of my endless soul that this new leader will truly be better, and that I may live for eight years beneath an aegis rather than a Damoclesian sword."
get over it.
Obama's bringing back the draft.

I WISH I had broken into Sarah Palin's email! I lost so many nights to so many wet dreams thanks to that woman--my sheets were soaked!--imagine if I could get ahold of the nude pictures she probably sends her husband from the office every sweet afternoon! My god! I'd never need to look at porn again! I'd be set for life!
