"The president who must not be named"

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/29/george-w-bush-republican-convention_n_1838248.html?ref=topbar




Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright turned heads last week by saying that Democrats could very well blame George W. Bush's presidency forever for the nation's problems.

Republicans cried foul, arguing that it was well past time to move on from the former president. After all, they've basically expunged him from their memories.

The Bush name and legacy are noticeably absent from the 2012 Republican convention. The former president unceremoniously announced he was skipping the affair months ago. Dick Cheney, the former vice president who remains more revered among the core national-security minded conservative set, isn't speaking, either. Bush's brother, Jeb, the former Republican governor of Florida, will address the crowd. As will Bush's former secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice. But they're expected to address specific policy issues, mainly education, rather than defend their brethren and their former boss.

1. You know, the one that drove our economy off the cliff with his:

1) Two illegal wars of vanity and greed;
2) His multi-billion dollar tax cuts for the top 5% richest Americans;
3) His shameless Medicare give-away to big pharma.

The worst pResident in my lifetime. And why pray-tell, is he or his "illustrious" Vice pResident not appearing at yet another rethuglican love-fest? Could it be that his party is completely ashamed of both bush* and cheney*?

If not, they well should be.
