  •  Something stuck to the Republicans because (0+ / 0-)

    bush was figuratively airlifted out of our White House and a collective sigh went out across the nation when that administration finally exhausted its time in office.

    People voted the rat bastards OUT and literally danced in the streets when the corrupt Republicans were gone.

    Then Obama kept saying, "Get a mop AND use it." People frankly didn't understand just how much horrible shit was created and the depth of the damage from the bush admin, so they presumed someone else would do the cleanup.

    We needed a nationwide call up to duty with an explanation of why... instead we got whinebags in the Republican Party to shutdown and halt repairs.

      very easy. THink if Obama let an American City drown while he watched from afar, as we all did. As if they were not his own people. Imagine if Obama lied to get us into a fake war.

      Obama cant' sneeze without Reps trying to make it into a scandal. And the went after Clinton like a machine too.

      Bush got away scott free with a false war. He also never apologised for there not being any WMD despite the ENDLESS number of times both he and Cheney sited them as why we were going in. 100K civillians died. They have big families over there. Very likely a million or so Iraqis lost family members.

      I probably preach to the converted, dont' mean to preach, but when I think it through I'm floored with how much he got away with period. The Farce of his Presidential Library opening was illuminating.

      •  The Bush cabal are ruthless (0+ / 0-)

        It's in their DNA.

        And the 100k civilian death count in Iraq is way under the correct death calculation. Some counts have 200k... others 600k... and some say over 1 million.
