On Wednesday, President George W Bush will have been out of office for a full year; I would have thought that Bush Derangement Syndrome would have died a natural death by now, but apparently I was wrong about that. Rob Kall, editor and owner of OpEdNews, wrote this both sad and amusing piece:
Obama and Clinton, book-ending the war and constitutional criminal Bush, giving him respectability, even honor as Clinton and Bush are announced as jointly working to help Haitians. It’s a good cause, but ends up conferring respectability upon a man who should be treated as a pariah.
It’s just about a year. Obama, after using Clinton’s former chief of staff John Podesta to fill his administration with Clinton administration DLC DINOs, has followed in Clinton’s footsteps, failing to prosecute a former president Bush for the horrific crimes he committed. Clinton let Herbert Walker Bush get away with his criminal role in the Iran Contra Affair. If Clinton had allowed investigations of Bush senior to proceed, the Bush name would have been irredeemably tainted and the US and the world would never have suffered the infliction of George W. Bush upon us.
Now, Obama not only fails to prosecute Bush, who should have been impeached, but for the infamy of Nancy Pelosi, but he honors and glorifies Dubya, sharing the podium with him.
No wonder there are so many Americans ready to repudiate the Democrats for their failures– failures to prosecute criminal politicians, failure to fire and prosecute Bush appointees in the Justice Department guilty of gross prosecutorial misconduct.
When I read things like this, I sometimes imagine the author’s keyboard and monitor to be spittle-flecked. I suppose I should have expected something along these lines, because OpEdNews was busy running pro-impeachment articles, and had pro-impeachment banners even after the 2008 elections; practicality is not something I associate with that particular site.
Mr Kall, just let it go! George Bush is no longer President of the United States, and will never be President of the United States again. He will almost certainly never hold another public office. It should be obvious that, despite your rather negative opinion of our 43rd President, most Democrats, even though glad he is out of office, are ready to move on.
