It is hilarious watching the Republican candidates in open support of George W. Bush's totally failed presidency. It is as if they do not fall in line, a stern teacher is going to come out of the woodwork and slap their knuckles with a ruler.
No presidency, not even Coolidge, Harding, or even Nixon has put the U.S. and the world in such jeopardy. And at home we have a recession already underway, favors to the rich at the detriment of the poor, golden gifts to the corporations and crumbs for the underserved, a remaining chasm in New Orleans after all these months, we are almost without a single nation-friend in the world, thousands of Americans killed and permanently wounded or maimed in Iraq, torture, Guantanamo, immense budget deficits, lies and lies and lies, an energy policy to benefit major corporations, tax money to benefit huge drug corporations, a U.S. infrastructure crumbling around us, handouts without bids to Halliburton as a pay-off to Cheney, secret wire-taps on innocent U.S. citizens, an unconstitutional Patriot Act, health care in America in the toilet even though our costs are higher than any industrialized country, the invasion of a sovereign nation that had no part in 9-11, military threats to Iran even though Bush's own staffs said Iran has halted nuclear weapons activity, special favors for the Saudis even though the 9-11 terrorists were primarily Saudi-led and Saudi-supported [a long-standing pay-off from the Bush family to their old friends in Saudi Arabia], ad infinitum.
C'mon, folks, no matter how loyal you are as a Republican, at some point you have to say, "Enough!" None of the leading GOP candidates for U.S. President deserves to be elected as long as they support this miserable administration.
George W. Bush has not only failed America, he has failed the world. To give any support to these conniving liars is the most unpatriotic thing you can do. Meanwhile, George W. Bush will retire in opulence as he hands off the horrendous mess to the next president.
