Bush’s Exit Interview

George W. Bush left the presidency disgraced with rock-bottom approval ratings. Now he’s trying to rehabilitate his legacy by breaking presidential tradition and attacking Donald Trump. Can a speech erase a record of mass murder and illegal war?

    • «Paraphrasing Utah Phillips, the most radical idea in America is a long memory.» One that recalls matters further back than three weeks ago ?…

    • Precisely the things we are to forget, while yet another US president engages in the consuetudinal rush to war. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose…

      • So… for the record you’re against making progress by encouraging those who deliver 90-95% of what can reasonably be expected of them?

        Yup, given that you aren’t a progressive (like myself) I can’t say that I’m surprised.

      • Bullshit. Voting for people who cant win is not voting for making progress, its voting for rolling back progress. And I’ve heard you admit that’s what you do in your own words. You have no interest in progress, unless its on your terms. And if you can’t get progress on your terms (and you never will) you’d rather have no progress at all and damn the consequences.

        The answer is: “Follow Whisical’s ‘plan’ (which is yet to be explained)!”

      • «Bullshit. Voting for people who cant [Sic !] win is not voting for making progress, its voting for rolling back progress.» What is «bullshit» is voting – and campaigning – for corrupt reactionaries, while claiming that this is the way to advance a progressive agenda. Our friend «Whimisical» is simply whimsy in the manner of bovine excreta….

      • @ mhenriday –

        Er ist kein Freund von mir!

        (BTW, if “cant” makes you sic ! what about “its”? You missed that? 😀 )

      • «(BTW, if “cant” makes you sic ! what about “its”? You missed that? 😉 )» Didn’t want to expend all my ammunition at one go, mein verehter Lehre – even if I must admit that our dear «Whimsical supplies it in great quantities… 🙂

        Are you referring to “ammunition” or to the aforementioned “bovine excreta”?
        😀

      • «Are you referring to “ammunition” or to the aforementioned “bovine excreta”?» Through some magical – no doubt quantum spukhafte Fernwirkung – process, our dear «Whimsical»’s, bovine excreta is transmogrified into my ammunition…. 🙂

    After all, even Richard Nixon became a “great statesman” when he died. Not that he was a crook….

  2. Pushing history down the memory hole makes the United States of Amnesia’s propaganda the best in the world.
