Democratic Presidential Bush Enablers Rehabilitate Criminal Bush
By Rob Kall



Obama and Clinton, book-ending the war and constitutional criminal Bush, giving him respectability, even honor as Clinton and Bush are announced as jointly working to help Haitians. It's a good cause, but ends up conferring respectability upon a man who should be treated as a pariah.

It's just about a year. Obama, after using Clinton's former chief of staff John Podesta to fill his administration with Clinton administration DLC DINOs, has followed in Clinton's footsteps, failing to prosecute a former president Bush for the horrific crimes he committed. Clinton let Herbert Walker Bush get away with his criminal role in the Iran Contra Affair. If Clinton had allowed investigations of Bush senior to proceed, the Bush name would have been irredeemably tainted and the US and the world would never have suffered the infliction of George W. Bush upon us.


Now, Obama not only fails to prosecute Bush, who should have been impeached, but for the infamy of Nancy Pelosi, but he honors and glorifies Dubya, sharing the podium with him.

No wonder there are so many Americans ready to repudiate the Democrats for their failures-- failures to prosecute criminal politicians, failure to fire and prosecute Bush appointees in the Justice Department guilty of gross prosecutorial misconduct.

5. You really think the majority of folks Bush would still appeal to would be likely
to donate to Haiti relief? Surely there is someone else besides Bush that could make that appeal to the bigot crowd.

7. Did it ever occur to you
that by enlisting Dubya to the cause, Obama has effectively countered the hate and racism being spewed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Co? If Rush continues with his hateful rhetoric, it's likely the 30% of the voting public who still supports Bush may well turn against him. It's worth a try if even one suffering Haitian receives the help so desperately needed. This is no time for politics.

8. I recced this OP. I think I could write a check to cover all the donations
that come in solely because W's smirk is a part of the effort and, I assure you, I am not wealthy.

This man is a war criminal and is guilty of numerous crimes against his own countrymen. His ass should be in prison, the true story of his crimes should be taught in primary schools and his wealth should be forfeited to the people of the United States.

Pelosi forfeited much of her credibility when she took impeachment "off the table" for Bush and Cheney. People understood that these people were criminals and they expected them to be investigated and prosecuted. When that wasn't even considered, many of us saw it as a sign of things to come.

We were correct.
