The Deluder in Chief andhis little side kick Joe Scum

<snip>

We long ago gave up hope that President Bush would acknowledge his many mistakes, or show he had learned anything from them. Even then we were unprepared for the epic denial that Mr. Bush displayed in his interview with ABC Newss Charles Gibson the other day, which he presumably considered an important valedictory chat with the American public as well.


The truth is that Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had been chafing to attack Iraq before Sept. 11, 2001. They justified that unnecessary war using intelligence reports that they knew or should have known to be faulty. And it was pressure from the White House and a highly politicized Pentagon that compelled people like Secretary of State Colin Powell and George Tenet, the Central Intelligence director, to ignore the counter-evidence and squander their good names on hyped claims of weapons of mass destruction.

Despite it all, Mr. Bush said he will leave the presidency with my head held high. And, presumably, with his eyes closed to all the disasters he is dumping on the American people and his successor.

Joe Scum says the NYT also attacked Reagan. Yep and they were right. Joe Scum you are clueless.

3. What a truly terrible president bush has been.
Wow. It's going to be a real shock going suddenly from this empty-headed jerk to an actual thinking person as our leader. (A shock maybe, but it sure is better than going the other way like we did in 2001.)
