Bush looks to historic parallels for final legacy

Excerpt
George W. Bush, worst President everAs Bush marks the Presidents Day holiday and George Washington’s 275th birthday on Monday, he faces a drumbeat a criticism for the event that will likely be a big part of his legacy — the Iraq war.

The president believes it will take some time to determine his place in the pantheon of presidents, despite the negative assessments some historians have already made.

Many in the current crop of historians are already prepared to declare Bush’s presidency a failure.

In a December opinion article in The Washington Post, Columbia University history professor Eric Foner wrote that Bush was likely to join mediocre presidents like Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Andrew Johnson.

Foner’s article was headlined, “He’s the worst ever.”

H.L.s Take
Thats absof**kinglutley 100% Correct. Bush is not not a mediocre President, he is no Pierce, Buchanan, or Andrew Johnson. He is not a bad President like Nixon, Harding or Reagan. He is THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY. Make no mistake the historian will agree, he is the stupidest, most arrogant, most murderous empty suit to ever occupy the oval office, and we can thank his daddy his brother jeb, and The Supreme Court, and the state of Ohio for him. Happy President’s Day everyone.


Latest Bush War News

The House had voted the resolution against Bush, and Iraq, and the in the Senate 34, Hardcore Republicans like John Mc Cain, and Joe Lieberman, are holding up the vote, so we can go ahead and call this Bush’s War. (and I don’t want to hear about who voted what way 4 years ago.)

2 Baghdad car bombs kill 56, injure 127

Excerpt
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Two car bombs exploded in an outdoor market in Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 56 people and injuring scores in the deadliest attack since U.S. and Iraqi forces began a major security push around the capital last week.
The twin blasts — marked the first major response by militants to the sweep launched last week and a sobering reminder of the huge challenges facing any efforts against the well-armed factions.

A separate car bomb in the mostly Shiite area of Sadr City killed at least one person and injured 10, police said.

The U.S. military reported the deaths of two American soldiers, one of them in Baghdad who was killed when an insurgent hurled a grenade at his vehicle. The other soldier died when a patrol came under fire north of Baghdad, the statement said. Both died Saturday.

8 U.S. troops die in Afghan copter crash

Excerpt
SHAHJOI, Afghanistan – A U.S. helicopter suffered a “sudden, unexplained loss of power” and crashed Sunday in southeastern Afghanistan, killing eight American troops, the military said. Fourteen people on board survived
The last time a U.S. military helicopter crashed was in May 2006, when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter went down while attempting a nighttime landing on a small mountaintop in eastern Kunar province, killing 10 U.S. soldiers.

In 2005, a U.S. helicopter crashed in Kunar after apparently being hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing 16 American troops.

H.L.s Take
So lets go to the toteboard and look at the totals for one more day of Bush’s Wars. So thats 56 Dead Iraqis, 127 Wounded Iraqis,
Another iraqi dead and 10 more injured, 2 American soldiers dead plus the 8 in the Helicpoter, so thats 57 dead Iraqis, 10 dead American soldiers, and 137 wounded Iraqis, and thats just what we know about for sure. But, the quagmire drags on with no end in site. Longer then it took to beat Hitler and Japan in World War 2, but still we are there, and what’s with these Helicopters that just keep crashing over a sudden loss of power. Once again the military is being provided with shoddy epuipment built no doubt by one of the companies that Bush and Cheney are getting rich from. Meanwhile here at home….


How Does He Do That With a Straight Face?

Snow disputes claim that Iraq is blunder

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – The White House on Sunday disagreed with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record)’s claim that the Iraq war was “the worst foreign policy mistake” in U.S. history.

He said President Bush should not see votes in Congress in opposition of his new Iraqi strategy as a rebuke.

“The strategy has barely had a chance to begin working,” Snow said.

The House passed a nonbinding resolution Friday that rejected the president’s 21,500-troop buildup in Iraq. The vote put Bush on the defensive going into a far more consequential confrontation over paying for the plan.

On Saturday, Senate Republicans foiled a Democratic bid to repudiate Bush’s deployment of additional combat troops. The 56-34 vote fell four short of the 60 needed, but Democrats quickly claimed victory, noting that a majority of senators voted against the escalation.On Saturday, Senate Republicans foiled a Democratic bid to repudiate Bush’s deployment of additional combat troops. The 56-34 vote fell four short of the 60 needed, but Democrats quickly claimed victory, noting that a majority of senators voted against the escalation.

“This war is a serious situation,” Reid said Saturday. “It involves the worst foreign policy mistake in the history of this country. … We find ourselves in a very deep hole. We need to find a way to dig out of it.”

Snow disagreed.

“The war is tough, but the solution is not to get out. It is to provide the kinds of resources and reinforcements our forces need to get the job done, and at the same time say to the Iraqis `You guys got to step up,'” Snow responded.

H.L.s Take
So Snow is blaming the newly elected Democratic majority for not getting resources and reinforcements to the troops, when for years Bush and the republicans have been sending them out in unarmoured vehicles, wearing inferior body armour (they were forbidden by the army to buy the better body armour even with their own money.) in Helicopters that can’t stop crashing, they are sending solders out on third and fourth tours becuase no one will volunteer for this debacle, but this is all the newly elected democrats fault. Tony Snow the lying robot. You gotta love Bush’s press secretarys first it was Ari Fleisher who had to step down so he could cop an immunity deal in the Scooter Libby case., then it was Scott Mc Clellan who was so even more of a liar, he got tossed out in one of Bush’s shakeups to make it look like he was doing something. Now we have Tony Snow, the long time Fox News reporter and Bush cheerleader. You have to hand it to him though, his facial expressions never change when he tells those whoppers.

Mc Cain: Was is Lost if Troop Surge Fails

McCain: No good options if surge fails

AP
Excerpt
DES MOINES, Iowa – Presidential contender John McCain (news, bio, voting record) said Saturday there aren’t any good options if the buildup of U.S. troops doesn’t stabilize Iraq.

The Arizona senator said during a campaign stop in Iowa that he’d be hard pressed to find an option that the public would support if the troop increase fails.

“I don’t know what the other options are because if we fail here I think it’s going to be very difficult to maintain the support of the American people,” he said. “And when the American people don’t support a war … then we aren’t able to maintain a foreign endeavor.”

H.L.s Take
It looks like Mc Cain is finally starting to catch on that he can’t become President if he continues his present course of action, which is to support Bush in his continued escalation of the war. It looks like he is now trying to distance himeself from Bush, the only problem was the “troop surge” was his idea. “It will be very difficult to maintain the support of the American People” he says. Hey John What planet are you living on? The support of the American people was gone long ago, along with any chance you ever had of becoming president. Did you hear about that election we had last November? You might want to check the results.
