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.

He is delusional. That is the only way I can explain it. I do feel a little sad for the man though trying to hang on to what little dignity he has left when the whole world knows he is an immoral idiot.

This is WELL-WRITTEN! I agree with every word and then some!

Please Georgie, let the door hit you on the a$$ on the way out. Maybe it will knock some sense into you.

Ditto -- I'm so glad to see him go, I still shake my head in disbelief over this guy.

You are right to point out George W. Bush's terrible choices.

I read his fair well address. He always takes the position that everything about the U.S. is beneficent. It is not. You mentioned the corporations. Look how many of those have gone about the world raping the people and the planet for short-term gain. It's disappearing. They create scarcity while claiming they bring bounty.

By the way, you did a solid job commenting over on Allykat's Tales: "Does God Forbid the Death Penalty?"

I left a follow-on comment myself. You may not agree with it all, but we are closer than either of us is to Allykat's position.

Bless you.

I watched the inaugural events today on tv (even though I live less than an hour away from D.C. - you're not gonna get me in a crowd like that!) and I have to say that my absolute favorite moment was watching Bush get in that helicopter and fly AWAY from the white house! YAY!!! :)
