    Whatever Happened to George Bush?

    Right wingers  said he was the greatest president of all time, that he saved us from terrorism despite 9/11, that he made the economy great, and that he was unreproachable.  In fact, when the Dixie Chicks made a harmless joke about him they were criticized and endured many threats against them and their families. Despite all the pretended virtues and high praises given to him, he started the recession, two needless wars, lied about WMD, and is the world's most hated political figure since Hitler. 

    When the Iraq national soccer team was asked how they felt about Bush, all said he could go to hell.  To this day, there are no public tributes made to him neither in Iraq nor Afghanistan.  In fact, both nations have fallen into anarchy thanks to the wars that he created.

    By contrast, right wingers used to attack Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton as two incompetent presidents. Yet, today both have kept high public profiles, are honored all through out the world, are far more popular today than they were during their administrations, and made numerous fund raising appearances during the November election campaigns. While the right wingers hate both, the majority of Americans (and the majority of people world wide)  honor both of them.   For example, Clinton's policies were criticized during the Rwanda civil war.  He was called a failure for "ignoring" the genocide there.  Yet, he publicly appeared in the streets of that country (without police or military  escort) and there were massive demonstrations in his favor.  Therefore, his actions were not failures at all.  By contrast, Bush has yet to appear on the streets of Iraq or Afghanistan.  If his interventionist policies were so great, why hasn't he made the same public appearances Clinton made in Rwanda? 

     

    So where is Bush? where are his public appearances? where are his defenders? why no public tributes to him in Afghanistan or Iraq?  why haven't his two wars been paid for (he said oil revenues would pay for his wars, if you recall)?  why didn't he appear on tv during the Romney campaign to support his party's drive? Calling Bush, calling Bush .....

    "the world's most hated political figure since Hitler"

    Thanks for admitting that ...that has some truth, due to the vicious nasty smearing personal attacks by liberals, reflected in your laundry list of smears and lies....

    George Bush was not a great President ...he spent too much taxpayer money, and sold out his conservative principles especially late in his term...he was browbeated by the leftist Congress elected in 2006..

    The liberal meme that "Bush didnt pay for two wars.." is false. Obama cannot uses that an an excuse for his insane expansion in spending and deficits...

    First of all, the Afghan War was strongly supported by liberals, including Barack Obama..going after the radical Islamic Taliban who supported Bin Ladin and the 9/11 attacks. 

    Second, it just isnt true.

    Re the cause of the deficit,  government stats show otherwise:

    This is a far better source than usuing self serving "findings" by a right wing group which is trying (unsuccessfully)  to defend Bush.

    "[Bush] started the recession"

    If the President is responsible for the state of the economy, then that is true.

    The recession ended in 2009. Since then, the US has had the WORST recovery from a recession in history. In eleven previous recessions, the economy came back quickly. The worse the recession, the sharper and quicker the recovery.

    Therefore, after 5 years of Obama policies, Obama has totally failed in his role as steward of the US economy. 

    Massive failure.

    Which were but a fraction of the smears and lies levelled by the far-right against the current POTUS.

    But why let truth impede your comic book version of recent history...?

    Obama is responsible for the highest corporate profits since the year 1900. Therefore his is the most successful administration in history.


    Now explain to me why Bush did not succeed in this regard.

    "By contrast, Bush has yet to appear on the streets of Iraq or Afghanistan.  If his interventionist policies were so great, why hasn't he made the same public appearances Clinton made in Rwanda?  "

    Point taken. Bush policies havent resulted in making the streets safe there, and chaos reigns. 

    By contrast, Obama has yet to appear on the streets of Chicago or Detroit.  If his liberal Democratic policies were so great for the poor in the inner cities , why hasn't he made the same public appearances Clinton made in Rwanda? 

     Point taken. LIiberal Democratic policies in effect for 40 years in these cities, havent resulted in making the streets safe there, and chaos reigns.

    CLC will probably argue that it's all a liberal conspiracy engineered to let Soros and Rev. Wright take over the economy, put muslims in charge, bomb israel, enact death panels, take their guns away and let illegal migrant farm workers shtup their daughters.

    Obama has a country to run, since congressional repubs have abdicated their responsibility to govern.

    Bush's priorities seem to amount to breakfast and call of duty: black ops on the couch.

    Besides, per some conservatives, there are no "real" americans in Chicago or Detroit.

    So you are arguing that Obama has succeeded with the economy. We have a great booming economy. Ok, go with that one.

    You must be one of the evil "1%" Obama rages against...thriving on corporate profits, exploiting the poor working stiffs..

    You need to read the newspapers - Obama was just in Chicago the other day.

    Where was Bush?

    In your little mind and on Vector Nebullah.

    But thanks for proving Godwin right yet again, and calling talkingpoints unbiased was just hilarious and I needed a good laugh. 




     

    Where was Godwin when anyone who dared to criticize Bush (or Nixon or Reagan for that matter) was called "commie"?

    Small mindedness is more for the right wing, not anyone else.

     

    Now let's get back to the issue at hand: where is Bush today and why has his public profile been so diminshed compared to those of Carter and Clinton?

    Funny that this data is based on a report by the CRS but the chart actually appears no where in the report itself. 

    For good reason, the authors cherry picked data.  The unfunded wars contributed to the Bush deficits but so did several other policies he implemented like the Bush tax cuts, the Medicare drug benefit, the 2008 BUSH Stimulus (which people seemed to have forgotten about where the government literally mailed checks to people), TARP and other bailouts.  None of which are represented in this eyecatching illustration.

    So sad that forum right wingers continue to deflect or make attacks rather than address the issues at hand.  Obviously it is a concession on their part that the truth is something they cannot deal with.

    So the liberal 'thinking'  here, is that George Bush spent too much and allowed the Government to grow too large.

    Agreed.

    The  liberal solution to this overspending problem? Bring in Obama, whose made Bush spending seem miniscule.

    Double, triple, quadruple down spending and goverment dependency to where Greek-type bankruptcy is on the horizon.

    EBT from 24 to 50 million, SS disability claims out of control, Obama free cellphones program spending 2 billion in the election year with 40% fraud ....

    You liberals are incoherent at best, government lapdogs at worst.

     The GOP likes to pretend that his actions as president don't effect us any longer. The reasons( The Bush Doctrine) for invading Iraq were criminal. But in my opinion the worst thing that Dubya did was to ill prepare the country for it's future. I don't blame the GOP from distanting themselves from him.
