Bush and His Legacy

Be forewarned that the opinion of the writer of this post is biased because he thinks George Bush IS the worst President EVER! Getting past that editorial comment I can now progress to show you why Bush WAS the WORST President EVER!

First we need to point out that Karl Rove is out of his hidey hole and now pounding the speaking circuit on his former bosses behalf. “W is good, W is great, W is far better than Jimmy Carter.” I had to paraphrase that but you get the jest of the Rovian message. His turdship supreme commander of double speak was in New York to try and pimp the Bush motorcade but came under some righteous boos and hisses. Over at the Washington Times, Jon Ward has this to say on it…

Rove: Bush hardly worst president
Wednesday, December 3, 2008

NEW YORK Karl Rove -- the architect, the one-time senior White House adviser to President Bush -- walked into the lion's den Tuesday night to argue that his former boss is not the worst president of the past 50 years.

He appeared at a formal debate on New York City's notoriously liberal Upper West Side as the most famous, and infamous, member of a four-member panel there to hash out the outgoing president's legacy.

Snip - Hack - Hairball…

The most heated moments came during the debate over Mr. Bush's biggest decision - the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The president himself said in an interview this week that his "biggest regret" is that the intelligence upon which the invasion was based wrongly concluded that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Even Mr. Kristol said that Mr. Bush has done "a horrible job of explaining what he's done and what the choices were."

But he and Mr. Rove both maintained that while the initial occupation was mismanaged, the surge of troops begun in 2007 has placed the U.S. on the cusp of victory in Iraq.

Former Bush adviser Karl Rove was greeted with hisses as he took the podium at a formal debate on New York's Upper West Side, but he helped attract a sold-out crowd.
"We've won the war," Mr. Kristol said.

Mr. Rove was incredulous at Mr. Jenkins' assertion that the Vietnam War was better managed than the Iraq war.

"We ended Vietnam in defeat, for which the families of 55,000 fallen heroes had reason to ask themselves if their sacrifices had been made in vain," Mr. Rove said.
Mr. Rove ended by saying that the deck was stacked against Mr. Bush from the beginning.

I think it needs to be pointed out that President Bush ignored all advisors except the ones in agreement with him to go to war in Iraq. If the intelligence did not fit the need, they ignored it. Can we possibly look at every other President in history that decided the United States Constitution was toilet paper. Umm, the list is kind of short but all those signing statements from George W. Bush sure are a giveaway. Legally, not one single bill he signed is according to the law of the land and Constitutional. The President can not define the law just before he signs it into law. That is the Congress job! How about the tapping of phones without a court order within the United States of America? How about privatizing our United States Military (brought to you by Haliburton) and awarding NO BID military contracts to the company that the VP was once CEO of?

George W. Bush was the WORST President EVER but he dares to tell his cowboy discretion story. Now that he can see the exit signs lit up on the White House he is playing the good guy instead of chucking the media the bird at every opportunity. For some odd reason he thinks that history will look at him more favorably if he whistles a happy tune on the way out. Over at The American Prospect they have this little nugget of info post Bush and Charlie Gibson interview…

Bush doesn't care about history, he's just a cowboy who goes with his gut, which is why he's meeting with his flacks to make sure history looks at him kindly. Like all activities undertaken by this Administration, this "Legacy Project" is a transparent disaster, with all the thoughtful preparation of Bush's War. The case being made by Rove and others, that the Administration reacted competently to the intelligence they had, is as transparently false as the original case for invasion. Still, as Sargent noted, you see a number of mainstream news organizations taking Bush's story at face value. Again.

What were those wise words? "Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice...can't get fooled again."

And any votes for Jimmy Carter, Jefferson, Taylor, Hayes, Hoover, Both Johnson’s, Both Adams, Both Roosevelt’s (New rule, no voting for any duplicate last names unless it begins with Bush and has George W. in it). Truman is out, so is Wilson, Lincoln, Grant, Washington, Ford, Reagan, Kennedy, Ike, Clinton, and any of the other guys that did not have their fingers crossed behind their back while taking the oath of office. You can vote for Nixon but we need to tape record your vote. And you can not vote for any President elected before the year 2000.

Don’t forget the 50-plus scandals, maybe more by now, in the Bush administation., and have done a good job of keeping up with all of them. Do searches on “Bush administration scandals” and “Bush administration corruption.” Yep, it’s Bush 43, hands down! BJ
