Speaking at the U.S. Army War College in Pennsylvania today, “President” Bush bragged that there hasn’t been another 9/11 since 9/11 — he wants kudos for doing his job — and today he also claimed to Fox “News,” “I didn’t compromise my soul to be a popular guy.” No, he sold his soul to Dick Cheney’s war-profiteering Halliburton instead of to popularity.
Apparently “President” Bush doesn’t want our last memory of him to be that of him ducking a pair of shoes thrown at him by an enraged Iraqi — you know, one of the people we “liberated.” (We “liberated” tens of thousands of them quite permanently…)
That’s like expecting a fucking Brownie button for the fact that yes, you killed an entire family while drunken driving, but that you haven’t killed anyone else since.
The worst terrorist attack on mainland American soil happened on Sept. 11, 2001, on Bush’s watch — less than a month and a week after he had received a presidential daily briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”
Bush didn’t care.
Just like he knew that Hurricane Katrina was determined to strike in the U.S. in August 2005 but he didn’t care about that, either.
In the last days of his disastrous hostile occupation of the White House, Bush can try to rewrite history all he wants; history will record him as W: The. Worst. “President.” Ever.
