Bush’s legacy: ‘a great, great, great story.’
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 06:22 PM by marmar
from Think Progress:



Bush’s legacy: ‘a great, great, great story.’»

Design firm the PRD Group has been as the “interpretive planner” for President Bush’s library and museum at Southern Methodist University. Dan Murphy, founder of PRD, describes his mission:

“We’re not really just trying to put a front cover and back cover around eight years of a presidency,” he said. “We have a much bigger story about America and about the history of the presidency and about the American experience. … We’ve got a great, great, great story.“


The architect for the project said that there will be “no bombast or boredom” to Bush’s library.


NOW check out some of the reader comments after this piece: :rofl:

Riiiight… it’s a real epic in the making, kinda like “The Titanic” meets “Goodfellas”.

Or mebbe “The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight” crossed w/ “Judgement At Nuremburg”.

“The Bad-News Bears” and “The Poseidon Adventure”?

“The Three Stooges Go To Mars” and “Psycho”?

Real high-concept, a they say in Lalaland…

We’ve got a great, great, great story.

Pol Pot had a great, great, great story.
Josef Stalin had a great, great, great story.
Adolph Hilter had a great, great, great story.
Chairman Mao had a great, great, great story.

The architect for the project said that there will be “no bombast or boredom” to Bush’s library.

Also, no truth or integrity.

I give up. First I post and get a blank page. Now I post and get a message telling me I’m posting too fast, slow down.

Fix this site TP!

It is a great story. A great story of greed and corruption and how they can bring down a once great country.

It’s a sad story, one I hope we never forget.

there will be “no bombast or boredom” to Bush’s library.

At the first exhibit, Cheney shoots you in the face with a duck gun.

Not boring at all.

Of course it’s a great story.

To me he’s the greatest President we’ve had since Nixon and Reagan.

To you he’s the worst of the worst.

What a great story!

At the entrance to the library dead eyed rice hand’s out copies of bush’s coloring book and a crayon….The first edition of his book was lost when his previous library flooded after cheney flushed…Blessings

Frank M, Nixon had to resign, how is that great? Iran-Contra was great?

I cant think of anything great Bush has done.

Perhaps you can list the great feats for us, such as record deficits mebbe?
