Mrs. Bush, Rice: Bush presidency not a failure

WASHINGTON (AP) - The two most influential women in President George W. Bush’s White House - first lady Laura Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice - are strongly defending the president’s legacy against critics who are calling his administration one of the worst in history.

“I know it’s not, and so I don’t really feel like I need to respond to people that view it that way,” Mrs. Bush said in an interview that aired Sunday. “I think history will judge and we’ll see later.”

Mrs. Bush, Rice: Bush presidency not a failure

Mrs. Bush, I personally don’t give a DAMN how history judges that MORON you are married to, I am concerned about the here and now, today, right NOW! How history reads this debacle called the Bush Administration is up to history, Mr. Bush may not be the worst president in history, once history plays out, but he is the worst president that this nation has seen to date!

“I think generations pretty soon are going to start to thank this president for what he’s done. This generation will,” Rice said.

“Because I think the fact that we have really made foreign assistance not just an issue of giving humanitarian aid or giving money to poor people, but really insisting on good governance and fighting corruption,” she said. “I think the fact that this president has laid the groundwork for a Palestinian state, being the first president, as a matter of policy, to say that there should be one, and now, I think, laying the foundation that’s going to lead to that Palestinian state - I can go on and on.”

Once upon a time, Condi Rice was looked upon as the best and the brightest in the Bush administration, not all that hard to do considering her contemporaries, but to even mention Palestine and the Bush accomplishments at this point in time is nothing more than an out of touch statement. Israel is kicking the crap out of Palestine right now, THAT is laying the ground work, for the destruction of the Palestinians and Hamas, a terror organization that the Bush administration seems to favor for some odd reason!

Mrs. Bush noted that under her husband’s watch, the U.S. toppled Saddam Hussein and liberated millions of people in Afghanistan and Iraq from oppressive governments. She also highlighted the president’s work to provide treatment for disease like AIDS and malaria to millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. She said her husband responded to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in a way that has kept the nation safe.

Afghanistan, in it’s original inception, is an entirely different matter, as I also will address in this post. The Bush Administration efforts to fight AIDS and malaria in Africa?? What about AIDS, the homeless and hunger right here in the U.S.A.?? The Bush Administration efforts in Iraq?? I see that Mrs. Bush bought all the same lines of BS that GWB fed the nation, and that line was bought, or, ALLOWED to take place, all on the premise of *Iraqi Freedom*.

Mrs. Bush challenged critics who contend that Iraq was a distraction the U.S. mission in Afghanistan where heightened violence is causing renewed instability.

“Well, I don’t know that I would agree with that at all,” Mrs. Bush said. “I don’t think that’s true at all. We’ve stayed very, very invested in Afghanistan. Not as invested militarily, maybe, and maybe that’s what the critics say, that it should have been more military. But I think we stayed very invested.”

BULLSHIT! We are in the process of escalating in Afghanistan, we are calling for more troops, we are taking troops that were originally tasked to Iraq and moving them to Afghanistan.

George W. Bush absolutely did the right thing by taking us to fight in Afghanistan after 9-11. That was the right place, the right time and the right people, not ALL of the right people but he was on the right track, and for Bush, that’s an accomplishment!

We had al-Qaida on the run, they were all but destroyed. We didn’t have Osama bin Laden, or his carcass, but we had al-Qaida on the run and very nearly defeated. Bush saw this as his opportunity to go after Saddam Hussein, for ALL the wrong reasons, reasons that have since been proven wrong, and admitted to BE wrong, by the DoD, Congress, the Senate, the C.I.A., even Bush himself.

George W. Bush has cost this nation over 4,200 military deaths that did NOT have to happen. George W. Bush has cost this nation untold hundreds of BILLIONS of American taxpayer dollars and has all but brought this nation to it’s knees financially. We are on the verge of a depression, NOT a recession, but a full blown depression, much like 1929!

Condi Rice says that she believes “generations pretty soon are going to start to thank this president for what he’s done. This generation will”. Condi Rice is kissing Bush’s ass, all this generation is going to thank Bush for is leaving and fading off into the shadows. Condi Rice is as wrong as wrong can get! There is only one thing that THIS generation could even remotely want to thank Bush for, and that will be after 4 years of hard core socialistic rule under Obama, they may say ‘thank you for NOT being THAT bad’.

Our borders are still wide open, this nation is still inundated by the massive influx of illegals and the tremendous strain they place on an already threatened economy.

When George W. Bush took office, this nation had a budget surplus, a Conservative Supreme Court, a Republican president and a Republican controlled House and Senate. What do we have now? To call Bush anything other than a miserable failure would be speaking too kindly in MY opinion! And just what part of this debacle are we supposed to THANK him for?

“Please Sir, may I have some more?”
