I Can't Stand Seeing So Much Of This Evil Family Responsible For So Many Innocent Deaths

Not one mention of WMD's, or how 41 never said anything about 43 lying to start the illegal war in Iraq.

And what happened in 2008? Am I the only one that remembers my life savings disappearing?

I feel sad for "their" loss, as we all should, but this is one truly evil family, and I am sick of watching history be whitewashed.

Even grandpa Prescott led a coup.

I can't say what I really think, but I would love to get a good picture of the worst, and second worst presidents ever.

And yes I am including Andrew Johnson.

It's his funeral, after all.

4. I'm with you. That's why I don't watch. It's all so absurd.

I didn't watch the last segment of The 11th Hour last night for this very reason.

Our obsession with celebrity defies reason, and fawning over horrible people is just disgusting.

5. He's not my kin

I feel no obligation to overlook the victims and survivors of the blood-soaked career of George Herbert Walker Bush. I do not know why the media feel they're under that continuing obligation. The day of his memorial service, maybe; but all the days leading up to it, and all the days that unwind after it will similarly be conspicuous by their circumspect review of the actual events of Bush's life. The tone police will be extra vigilant to scold anyone so churlish as to remember inconvenient and disrespectful facts. And we'll all feel better for his privileged and blameless existence.

I am so sick of this
We can't be truthful
That is why shit continues to happen - the guilty are NEVER punished and thus we continue to repeat the same over and over

33. i finally watched some tv yesterday

It was amazing how much syrup flowed on the tv "news" yesterday. It's pretty clear, now, why so many DUers have been pissed off. I didn't hear any of the talking heads point out the little blemishes like AIDS, Iran-Contra, Noriega and Panama.

The bothsiderists transmogrified into onesiderologists.

Had to watch some Democracy Now and read some Guardian to get over it.

7. I feel the same way

GHW Bush did tons of sleazy stuff. He ran the CIA for Christ sake. His spawn, GW Bush, lied about WMD and there are thousands of families both here and in Iraq that he destroyed. It is hard to sit back and see the endless love and tributes to GHW Bush. I mean, come on. But of course everyone is thinking what a vile piece of human sewage Trump is. Every President before him, including Nixon, is looking better. GHW Bush looks like a saint compared to Trump. I still think that the Bush family should have made it clear that Trump was not welcome, I don't care what GHW Bush wanted. They should have stood up as a family and shoved it up Trump's rear. People normalizing this fool is what has taken America down the toilet.

9. I agree.

I agree and agree and agree and agree, but I"m not turning on the television either.

I just read a story on Reuters via DU about people in Venezuela not having enough access to natural gas to cremate their dead, and resorting to burying their dead in "common graves".

I feel more solidarity in grief with those people than I do with any of the attendees at this pageant.

...Depending on your cable provider, there are probably ~500 channels they offer. Find one that's not covering the funeral and watch that...

about GHWB or what was said about him? In a couple of days we are not likely to hear much about him at all, so deal with it.

16. You're in good company ...

Democratic Underground was founded by David Allen and Dave Allsopp. The website was launched on January 20th, 2001, the same day as the Inauguration of Republican President George W. Bush for his first term as president. The founding date of the website is no coincidence, primarily in the way that the website was created specifically to openly exhibit opposition towards George W. Bush’s victory over Al Gore for the presidency. According to Democratic Underground, as of June 2010, the website has almost 160,000 registered members and over 50,000,000 posts on their discussion boards in the last 9 years since their founding date in 2001.

Last edited Wed Dec 5, 2018, 01:58 PM - Edit history (1)

Though Bush Sr. never really drew strong opposition. But it's more obvious with Jr. People here were comparing him to Hitler 10-15 years ago. Now some people here think he's "cute."

I think it's different when you're out of the game.

29. It's easier to overlook the sins of the Bushes when you have a real, live horror show

going on. We've never seen anything like this in the history of the Republic. Hell, even Nixon and, God forbid, Darth Cheney look good compared to that toxic orange buffoonish criminal & traitor who's currently infesting the White House.

31. Then don't watch it. Free yourself from having your emotions controlled by others.

Do something constructive like help a person in need. Spend some time instead volunteering at local animal shelter. There's so many things one can do that would have a positive impact rather then being a slave to others.

It makes me want to hurl.

I went to Bush's ranch to protest his lies about WMD's, and now he has been normalized because his daddy died.

Not one word of the TRUE LEGACY of Bush 41, or 43. Just pure whitewashing.

Sick.
