    ignored his Aug 6 pdb, and basically allowed 9/11 to happen
    then he lied and invaded Iraq, to steal their oil
    then ignored the nation that actually produced the 9?11 terrorists
    then he cut short the drive to capture Bin Laden
    he cut taxes for the rich while conducting a war paid for by loans, driving up the national debt
    Bush had to offset his tax cuts, so he cut, among other things, the budget for the Army Corps of Engineers' plan to rebuild the LA levee system (SELA) stoping repair work on the levees, which failed in Katrina
    Bush refused to put support into place before Katrina hit, instead, eating cake in Arizona while New Orleans flooded
    Then he played political football with the relief efforts, even going so far as to refuse ego allow a hospital ship to come to New Orleans.
    he gave as much money to MS as he did to NOLA< even though New Orleans had fare greater damage, with a far greater impact on its people.
    Bush authorized torture and imprisonment with no cause.

    And you expect to come here on the board and think we are going to ignore Bush's atrocities, and play false equivalency with you? GTFO. I am a New Orleans person, and I will never forgive what Bush did to my city and its people and how he lied before during and after Katrina. And how he lied and attacked Iraq and ran this country into the ground then la- dee dah'd out of office and left a mess for Obama to clean up. Not until Bush is in jail will I begin to forget.

      There is nothing Bush could do to pay for the ruin he brought to America and Iraq. None of the so called accomplishments Bush took credit for while in office will compensate for the dead soldiers, the dead civilians, the ruined lives and businesses, that Bush caused. This diary ignores all of that, and attempts to equate Bush's "progressive accomplishments" with Obama's. Yeah, you could say that say about Stalin, too. You have a lot of gall to try to whitewash over what Bush did, in a sick attempt to minimize what Obama has done, especially, especially since Obama was saddled for the git go with cleaning up after this frat boy, while his racist  cohorts did all they could to prevent President Obama from doing anything. You got a lotta damn gall.
