Christopher Buckley: The Audacity of Oops

The article below was written by Christopher Buckley, son of conservative William F. Buckley.  Christopher Buckley jumped ship last November and voted for Barack Obama.  He was taken in by BO's hopey-changey promises.  This article will tell you where Christopher is coming from now.

Well, with your help Mr. Christoper Buckley, we now have a president intent on destroying our country by turning it into a banana republic.  I'm happy to see that you have "seen the light", but I'd say instead of calling Obama's new book "The Audacity of Oops", I think that should be the title of YOUR next book explaining why you voted for him.

The Audacity of Oops
by Christopher Buckley

Barack Obama  
Daily Beast columnist Christopher Buckley procured an early draft of President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union speech.
My fellow Americans,
Tonight I can report to you that the state of the union, on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being excellent, is a 9.8.
Now, you may ask—and I wouldn’t blame you for asking—how I came up with that number. You might be saying to yourself, “Wait a minute. I’ve got no job, no health insurance. My house isn’t worth half the amount of my mortgage, and I just got called up by the National Guard to do a fifth tour in Afghanistan. How the heck did he come up with 9.8?”
So it’s a good and valid question. And the answer is that 9.8 is pretty good, considering the mess my predecessor and the Republicans left me. Fair enough? I think so.



  1. How quickly they jump off the bandwagon. We told you so. We warned you. Now you have lost much credibility for not seeing past worthless rhetoric Mr. Buckley.

  2. Hi Bill:
    There's a lot of buyer's remorse going around. You would think that someone like Christopher Buckley would have known better.
