Just when you think the neocons have done all the damage to the U.S. that could possibly be done, Bush goes to the Middle East and screws things up even more. His comments about Arab nations made him even more of a pariah than he already had been. It is Bush and the neocons who are recruitment godsends to terrorists. And traveling as a head of state he should know that you keep your own national politics out of bounds. Yet he couldn't contain himself, or the horrid neocons that surround him, and openly criticized Obama. Imagine, George W. Bush criticizing an intelligent politician about the Middle East. Bush has screwed up the Middle East [and everything else he has touched] beyond belief. The president of the U.S. is hated and has become the laughing stock around the world.
The legacy of this president is so horrible that it will take at least several presidential administrations to get things back on an even keel, if it can be done at all. The dollar is now a questionable currency of exchange in more and more nations. Our national debt is at levels that could not be imagined heretofore. We are bogged down in a war that continues to claim lives and is bankrupting the U.S. economy. And it was all done with lies as the vehicle of delivery.
Conversely, look at the big benefactors of this conservative administration: huge corporate conglomerates, drug behemoths, insurance giants, corporations supplying current military adventurism, large petro vultures, etc. Imagine Halliburton being given no-bid contracts worth billions of dollars, and slick-Dick Cheney having served as its CEO!
The conservatives, posing in religious fundamentalism and family values, are passing on all this selfish indulgence and manipulation to your children and grandchildren to pay for. How disgusting can these charlatans be?
Look across the aisle to the Democrats. Their silence has been deafening. Where have you been? Sure, now that a president has been rightfully and finally disgraced and with an election confronting us, out comes a semblence of outrage. You disgusting wimps! Without your votes in Congress, this neocon grab could not have happened.
There is no liberalism-progressivism in current American politics. It is a joke to hear right-wing zealots try to paint Democrats as too liberal. Wake up America! You have been taken over by a fascist-leaning group of politicos who have given corporations our economy on a silver platter. And the middle class and poor are paying for it.
