So these 8 years of George W. Bush are nearly over. Sometimes I cannot believe it. I can't believe that the madness is soon to be finished with. Obviously not the madness of the war or the economy, but the absolute arrogance of a man who doesn't seem to have any clue of what he is doing is nearly over. Recently I read on a blog that whether or not G. W. Bush was a good president remains to be seen, and will be told in hisotry, but we should still all agree that the choices he made were for the best of the American people. I'm sorry, but that's nonsense. Was the deregulation of the banks in the best interest of the people, or the best interest of corporations? Was the war based on false information, that has killed thousands and thousands of people a good decision? Were all the inflated defense contracts handed out to Halliburton in the best interest of the people? No. George W. Bush said the other night that we should all agree that he had to make the tough decisions. Well of course you did, you're the friggin president, not the ice cream man. The problem is that he made so many WRONG decisions. I wish I could, just a couple of days before the end of his presidency, push it all under the rug and not be angry, but that's just not possible for me.
