Trump vs. W

The fact that we can even smile when we see W's face now is a testament to how successful his lie machine was in starting a war for no reason. We cannot exonerate him. The dead are still dead. The debt is still dragging us down. The reputation of America is still in the dumps. Yes, Trump has run off our alies, and holds no credibility in the world but I won't forget what Bush did to our credibility and prestige when it was at its highest. If trump doesn't succeed him as worst president ever it's only because he has no credibility with which to corral our alies into any new debacle. He, at least, does not hide his corruption.

2. The only part of what you say that is confusing is...

the smiling part. I still hate him with the fire of 1000 suns and Cheney withe the fire of 10,000.
Monkeyboy should be in prison for his crimes.

4. I don't like W any more now than I did when he was president.

It's just that many of us, me included, figured he'd have to be the worst president we'd ever see. But as bad as he was, Trump is turning out to be even worse in all respects, and is likely to do far more damage to our basic institutions. I think Obama was pretty successful in repairing our national reputation in the rest of the world, notwithstanding the Iraq debacle, but Trump has erased that and dragged it down even farther. So I don't consider W to have been rehabilitated just because he did us the favor of shutting up and taking up oil painting. It's just that Trump is so galactically horrible.

8. W never legitimized white supremacism and the bullying of women and minorities.

Trump has made all of that mainstream, and the effects will be felt for decades.

9. Or constantly tried to kill millions of Americans by taking away their healthcare

Or dismantled the government and attacked the FBI while praising our enemy

The list is long and sickening

17. True Bush never did that...

... but that's only because he didn't have the ability. Trust me, if he had the ability to, he would have mainstreamed every form of hatred possible.

11. I wrote a poem for W when he left office

What I would like to say to his face:


I'd tell you to go fuck yourself
But that is much too kind
Because if you could perform that feat
You'd take pleasure in your behind

I'd like to say eat shit and die
But you deserve much more
You should suffer all the grief and pain
Of your misbegotten war

Though I can never make you think
Or feel, or understand
I'll take solace when you hear your name
Cursed throughout the land

From inside a lonely prison cell
Dark and bare and cold
Where every day you pay for your crimes
Until you're sick, heartbroken, and old

Then when you finally leave the earth
You fucked over oh so well
If there is a God and afterlife
You're going straight to hell.

15. He will probably explode and vanish

Like the evil eye of Sauron when the One Ring fell into the fiery pit of Mount Doom.

GW was his Gollum.

20. I had a visceral reaction to those war criminals ...

... whenever I saw them on TV.

I joined DU in 2002 when they were beating the war drums to invade Iraq. DU was a great source of information exposing the lies the mainstream media helped propagate.

GW Bush and his cabal used the national tragedy of 9-11 to manipulate the fear, grief, anger, and patriotism of the American people, taking our country into a disastrous war based on lies.

It was IMO the most egregious betrayal of public trust by a president in our nation's history.

I travelled to Washington DC to join 100,000 protesters in March 2003. I cried tears of rage when Shock and Awe was launched a few days later.

I will never forget, nor forgive.
