President Obama, "He (Bush) was a good man."

Like hell he was. He started a war of choice based on lies where they didn't even bother to try to count the number of civilian deaths, which scientific investigations estimated were in the hundreds of thousands. He called the Geneva convention "quaint".

He authorized "enhanced interrogation". He trampled the Bill of Rights. He oversaw a prison camp in Cuba that made Fidel Castro look good by comparison.

"History's going to show I served with great people". GHW Bush.
Killers' Row. They should be tried at the Hague, but it will never happen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
