Scathing Condemnation of George W Bush- How George W. Bush Helped Osama Bin Laden Win His War [View all]

http://guardianlv.com/2013/01/george-w-bush-helped-ossama-bin-laden-win-his-war/
<snip>


For America, the 2000 Presidential election was a beginning of the end of the United States of America. Action by the Supreme Court gave George W. Bush the Presidency. Al Gore, who had won the popular vote by over a half a million votes, was denied an accurate re-count in Florida, and consequently lost the electoral vote.

Today, from his watery grave, Osama Bin Laden is giving thanks to Bush. His real goal was to destroy the United States, to punish it for occupying Arabic land and debasing the religion of Islam. Bush guaranteed his success.

This all continues today. Republicans continue to refuse to blame Bush for where we are today economically. They love to blame a President who inherited the worst economic situation since the great depression. De-regulation of the banking industry, and Wall Street, allowed greed to place working class Americans in desperation. Those who caused the problem experienced no change in their lifestyle, and no banking executive has ever been prosecuted for their criminal acts.

I don’t believe Bin Laden could have ever dreamed that his cowardly attack on innocent people, simply doing their jobs, would result in such a success. All he needed was one ignorant man, who should never been in a position to lead a country, to take action to help him win his war.

Bush doesn’t deserve all the blame. The red states elected him and gave him power. The plight of America is on their hands as well.
