What if this was said by Wanda Sikes at the White House corespondents dinner last weekend regarding the Bush presidency. Her exact quotes from a Wall Street Journal article are intact, "what if" changes are in bold.
"Obama said he hopes Bush fails, so you're saying, 'I hope America fails,' you're, like, 'I dont [sic] care about people losing their homes, their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq.' He just wants the country to fail. To me, that's treason. "He's not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this, sir, because I think Hussein Obama was the 20th hijacker. But he was just so strung out on Smoking cigarettes he missed his flight." "Obama, I hope the country fails, I hope his lungs fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that's what he needs." Cheney seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the "joke" with the person sitting on his right.You know what the outrage would be from the left.
