Damn Right! I’ll Give George W. Bush Credit

Much of the Rightist media is clamoring for attention today on behalf of their hero, George W. Bush. The rallying cry has something to do with giving the former president credit for the Iraq war as President Obama announces an end to the military engagement.

So in the spirit of bipartisanship, I will be happy to give Bush credit. I’ll give him full and complete credit for…

  • Waging a war of aggression under false pretenses.
  • Lying about Iraq being allied with Al Qaeda.
  • Lying about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction.
  • Lying about oil revenue paying for the whole misadventure.
  • Killing hundreds of thousands of innocent, civilian Iraqis.
  • Losing the lives of more than 4,000 American soldiers.
  • Permitting atrocities like Abu Ghraib.
  • Aiding and abetting Al Qaeda’s recruitment efforts.
  • Sticking us with the mess at Guantanamo Bay.
  • Diverting military and financial resources from the real war on terror.
  • Destroying our nation’s international reputation.
  • Bankrupting our country and burdening us with lasting economic hardship.
  • Weakening our Constitutional liberties.

It would be inconsiderate not to recognize Bush and to give him his fair due for his contribution to the war in Iraq, which he initiated. And I for one will not rob him of the credit he so richly deserves.

  1. What the hell? Give Bush credit? For what? Even Bush would tell FOX NEWS that history is the judge. We have no idea what will happen to Iraq for better or worse. I’m sure Nixon would LOVE to give credit to Johnson for South Vietnam being a Communist country now, except now that it’s communist we have a pretty good relationship with them. On the other hand, that whole Domino Theory was a bust…

    See? History gives complicated verdicts and doesn’t care what Obama might say right now.

    And then there’s all that stuff you wrote.

  2. Mark, simply put you nailed it!

  3. Yep, all those things. But let us not forget that the self rightious gopers under McKinnley who gave America what it never had before: Empire and colonies!
