George Bush left office with either the lowest popularity rating of any President in history, or at the very least, the second lowest.  The last President to be so unpopular was Lyndon B. Johnson who presided over the Vietnam War.

We are at a loss to see what George did all that wrong.  We know the war was a major flub, but it was one huge mistake, and obvious.  But people blame George and the Bush administration for everything.  Bubonic plague, athlete’s foot, Sarah Palin, need we go on?

georgebush_dan100200zWe don’t see any genuine attacks on George that hold water.  The deregulation attack on Bush is that he didn’t do enough about deregulation enacted by his Democratic predecessors.  Wow, what kind of attack is that?

So, we decided to let the liberals, and whomever else desires to have a go, to get a prize for telling us specifically what George Bush did wrong.  The best answer as chosen by our staff will win a $15 Amazon Gift Certificate!  All for stating your opinion.

Now, there are some rules.

1. No profanity.  Profane language won’t see the light of day.  Your response will be deleted unceremoniously.
2. Use a few brain cells.  Answers like, “Because he was an idiot” don’t cut it, and while we may not filter them out, they won’t win.
3. Decisions by our staff are final and the winner will be announced three weeks from the publication of this article.
4. Keep the topic relevant.  Posts not related to the question will be deleted.
5. State the why.  Answers that say because the economy sucks but then don’t say how Bush was related to the economic problem will not be selected.
6. Have fun.

    First, I skimmed through the comments, which most looked like this: He started an illegal war/or a war we didn’t need. I gotta say this; after 9/11, I believe 98% of this countrys population wanted something done; and if he did not go to war, he would’ve been driven out of office.
    Next, the courts appointed him President in 2000. I don’t believe that, but even if that is true, how did he get elected a SECOND TERM
    In his last ‘lame duck’ days in the WH, he started this bailout of the car company, and Obama continued it. (the bailout that Obama says was one of the greatest thing his admin did, and a driving point in his current campaign)
    I tried to think back on 2000 thru 2008 and was the country that (or as it is currently) bad off, I thought no, not that bad. Your mileage may vary.
    Obama may have ‘inherited’ a huge deficit, but 1 year into his admin. our family took a huge pay cut, and we felt LUCKY, at not losing a job as sooo many have.

    He was owned by corporations. We have big corporations who hold more power over presidents by funding campaigns if they support certain things about the corporations. We don’t elect presidents in the office who represent citizens. They represent the corporations that fund them. The rich 1% own the government now that capitalism and money is more important than facts and moral ethics that a president should withhold.

    wtf kinda drugs are you on? just remind me not to take any@Shawn -

    Clear skies act to start off. Yes to the economy comment. Bush did not get us to this point, Reagan did. My dad is a cpa for one of the largest banks in America. Reagan specifically deregulated the banks and Bush only pushed it farther. Bush was a frat head trying to prove he was better then his brother Jeb then used Jeb to make the black votes disappear during the elections. If that doesn’t answer that question how about infringing on our privacy with his tap every comm. line act. Sure with some things aren’t so cut and dry but no doubt he did nothing at best. Most Republicans are blind to Demmies accomplishments. Obama has nothing but positive but god forbid he did anything right but all these white republicans aren’t racist…..of course not.

  5. Stand up for our presidents! says:

    To the person who thinks their Jesus Christ! YOU ARE NOT GOD, and YOU CALL OTHERS DOUCHE BAGS!!! George Bush did not get you into this economy!! People didn’t not even realize that this is where we were headed way before George Bush was elected!! People like you are just to self absorbed that you didn’t even realize it!!!! Look Around for once!@jesuschrist -

    All I can see is the destruction of WTC. What? USA’s powerful military scans couldn’t see the incoming danger? Twice? Where’s the Fighter Jets during the second crash? Fighter Jets are faster than any commercial airplane, so I think this is Bush’s conspiracy and al-Qaeda might have an alliance pact with USA. It comes to the mystery whether Osama bin Laden is really dead or his name is even Osama? Probably a codename…

    @jesuschrist
    Did you go to school. There are 3 Branches of Government
    1. Executive Brach. President. Look up quote of FDR. He said the President is the 2nd powerful man in this Bully Pit. Congress decides taxes to military funding to spend money on the Government which Congress Budgeted.

    If wall street wasn’t so greedy and do those loan programs they knew they would make tons of $$$$$. But they never thought of a total failure. So hey let’s get IAG biggest Insurance firm to cover the loans either way we get our money. Till the Market fell. IAG could not cover all the notes.

    By the way the American people did no want government involvement in wall street cause of all the

    My God, where you get your info!!!!! Comics. I would recommend you read Presidential Powers of the President. Bush has no control of the wall street or Banks….

    Article II of the Constitution defining (and limiting) the presidential powers

    Section. 1. The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

    Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

    The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; a quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice President [Modified by Amendment XII].

    The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

    No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected [Modified by Amendment XXV].

    The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Section. 2. The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

    He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    Section. 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

    Section. 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    It appears that County Sheriffs have jurisdiction over agents from the Executive Branch.

    Amendment X states that powers not given to the President are reserved to states or the people, if not denied.

    @sdfsdaf – Douche bag! You might be too stupid to realize this, but Bush got the economy in the crapper. Obama did the unpopular bailout, but it did help ease some job losses. If he didn’t do that economists predict 14% unemployment. I’m not sure where you get your “facts” but they are complete shit!

    George Bush hates Black People!! lmfao!:)

  12. Katie says:

    @matt – So you say that Bush declared war on a country that never did anything? Hmmmm where were you living on 9/11/01 under a rock? This countries number one goal was to find and destory all terrorists, ALL of them. With out this war we would have never been able to catch Osama Bin Laden or any other terrorist mastermind. You should really check your loyalty and see what country its really to. People like you disgust me, why do you put yourself in his shoes for half a second. Your running your own country and someone attacks it, well thank God your not running this country becasue lord knows you would have just sat there and let it happen again and again because war is bad, and peace this peace that. Peace is something that everyone wants, except those people that HATE America, which is who this country was set out to destroy. Re-think things before you open your mouth.

    @Hal

    You’re a f***ing idiot. What has Obama done for our country? Helped the economy? NO. Pulled the troops out of Iraq? NO. His idea of america is taking money from the people who earned and giving it to the “poor” who sit on their ass and do nothing.

    @matt – You have no idea what Jesus would do, may i remind you Jesus and God are one and God ordered the killing of entire Biblical civilizations. Don’t speak for God. Bush was doing what he felt was right at the time, and blaming him for that, and all the other problems that happened during his presidency is what makes people like you hard to listen to because you only see what you want to see, so long as it supports a democratic way of life

  16. EmilyRoll says:

    @David

    You are an idiot. Politicus is right about everything he mentions.

    1.) There are not only facts that Bush stole the election, but now there are actual documentaries.The vote in Florida was so close that it took a month to declare a winner. Before Florida was declared, Gore led in the Electoral College with 266 votes to Bush’s 246 votes. When Bush was declared the winner of Florida by 537 votes, he picked up 25 Electoral College votes which gave him the Presidency.
    But Bush only won Florida because of poorly designed butterfly ballots that stole votes from Gore, and because his Florida campaign manager Republican Secretary of State Kathleen Harris and Governor Jeb Bush illegally removed 57,700 voters from the rolls. It is estimated that 90% of them were Democratic. So this represent thousands of votes stolen from Al Gore. If this crime had not been commited then Gore would be President.

    2. You don’t understand what the hell is talking about, because clearly you run your mouth and don’t actually know anything when it comes to politics. Sept. 11. 2009 aka. Bush was involved in the attacks. You should watch loose change on youtube or do some research yourself. But i’ll give you a few bullets–

    The Pentagon commissioned an expert panel in 1993 to investigate the possibility of an airplane being used to bomb national landmarks.

    Western intelligence had been aware of plans for such terrorist attacks on U.S. soil as early as 1995. Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had detailed information about the possible use of hijack/suicide attacks by terrorists connected to Osama bin Laden…. this goes on and on and on.

    Seriously all you have to do is research, even on the internet there is government/CIA documentation of proof that the Bush administration was involved with the terrorist attacks. Not to mention how many people actually got rich after the whole scheme.

    I’m a student at the University of Texas- and I wish I had the time to explain to you why I KNOW you have no significant intelligence but, I don’t have the time.

    So I quickly google this website– it has mostly everything you need.

  18. David says:

    “Polotics” Almost ALL of your points made can be argued and therefor are VOID.

    1. Proof that it was stolen.
    2. I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about here.
    3. Would you like to see more families killed from mindless terrorists? Go ahead government, tap my phones, read my e-mails, I don’t mind. As long as it prevents another 9/11 from happening.
    4. We had needs and causes to invade Iraq.
    5. Get your facts straight, barely 100,000 civilian deaths were reported from the Iraq war. VOID. When a person joins the Army they should know the consequences and should be damn proud to serve your country.
    6. Proof!
    7. Like I said, you want another 9/11 to happen? I agree that torture is wrong but we have damn good reasons.
    9. Again, GET YOUR DAMN FACTS STRAIGHT! http://zfacts.com/p/461.html
    Idiot
    11. How is that George Bushes fault? You make no sense whatsoever on this one. Obviously Bush new what’s going on with our dumbass American kids growing into even more dumbass adults. That’s why he created no child left behind. May I remind you that America has the population of 300 million people while China and India are at 1.2 billion and 1 billion. Take a second to think about that.
    12. Corporations run this country. It’s a sad fact but a true one. If they are suffering economic depression, Americas people suffers also. It’s not rocket science, all the bailouts he did were justified.

    In closing I’d like to congratulate you on your egotistic, liberal (moronic) skills. They’ve served you well in presenting real facts and the truth.(sarcasm) Bush suffered 9/11, war, natural disasters, plagues, and many things that any other president doesn’t go through. It’s hard to really tackle this subject because if you would have been in his position at the time, it wouldn’t be the easiest thing in the world to do. You say he should have done this now in present time but a few years ago some of the decisions he made seemed like the right ones.

    What’s done is done, move on and learn from mistakes. That’s all we can do.

  19. Andy says:

    Hey Ottis what have you been doing since leaving the show? Sure hasn’t been
    Following the news!

  20. Politicus says:

    First: The stolen election of 2000, which started it all.

    Second: The attacks of September 11, 2001.

    Third: The approval of the Patriot Act and its effects on our democratic system, including the creation of the all-encompassing Department of Homeland Security, illegal wiretapping and domestic spying, the firing of U.S. Attorneys, Dick Cheney’s Energy Task Force, creation of a police state and an atmosphere of overall paranoia and so forth, and so on.

    Fourth: The push towards the invasion of Iraq, along with totally untrue “justifications”, such as the presence of weapons of mass destruction, al-Qaida being centered in Iraq and the “urgent” need to depose Saddam, etc, etc.

    Fifth: The inept and I mean INEPT attempts at nation building, which of course – besides the actual conquest of Iraq – have caused the longest-lasting war in U.S. history and have cost the lives of approximately one million men, women and children and over 4,000 American soldiers, with tens of thousands of young men and women being crippled for life.

    Sixth: The total monetary cost of this artificially created conflict is estimated to be in the trillions of dollars and counting. Making certain specific, but often not even specified corporations very, very rich in the process – with U.S. taxpayer’s money, of course.

    Seventh: Causing the United States to slide from a position of a beacon of freedom to most of the world, to a universally despised entity, which allows and in fact employs torture, extraordinary rendition, secret prisons and all kinds of nasty methods, formerly the domain of the most unsavory of regimes.

    Eight: The deregulation of all kinds of industries, including the airlines and of course, the financial (read: debt repackaging mills) sector.

    Ninth: The creation of the largest national debt and government deficit in the history of the known world. As a matter of fact, the debt clock on Wall Street – which has been switched off during the Clinton administration, because it wasn’t needed – was turned off again, this time, because they run out of digits….Yes, folks. Our national debt now totals some $56 trillion. That’s about $480,000 for every household in the U.S. Isn’t it amazing that we had a surplus under the philanderer Clinton and a totally crippling debt under the teetotaler Bush?

    Tenth: Becoming an economic cripple, with foreign creditors holding huge chunks of whatever real wealth remains in the U.S.

    Eleventh: Not producing very much of anything any longer, allowing other countries to take the technological lead in many areas, allowing our infrastructure to crumble (besides the anti-terrorist barriers in front of government buildings), having an educational system that continues to produce illiterate adults, who often have no idea what lies beyond the borders of their counties and spend an incredible amount of time watching the moronic offerings of the television industry. And lets not forget the government’s peerless performance during and after Hurricane Katrina.

    Twelfth: And this is the crowning, but not surprising touch of the last eight years: The seeming collapse of the debt repackaging mills, which George W. Bush had the gall to call “our financial system” and of course, another super urgent call to bail it out at a cost of another $700 billion, to a trillion dollars of taxpayer’s money. This, after bailing out Bear Stearns, Fannie May, Freddie Mack, AIG and others.

    I will leave the 13th point out of this discussion, as we all fervently hope that it won’t be needed and that point number 12 is the last serious point of damage that the present occupant of the White House and his corporate masters will cause to all of us.

    In closing, allow me to congratulate all of those who have re-elected Bush in 2004!

Im a christian and he felt God guided his decison making in the war too, would jesus ever be so inhumain??? NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@Troy -

  23. SJF says:

    Just to name a few….George Bush increased the national debt from 5 Trillion to 11 Trillion dollars in 8 years, more than any administration, basically bankrupting the treasury and adding a tax burden of gigantic proportions to future children. Did business with Salem Bin Laden and other Bin Ladens. During the grounding of all air craft just after sept 11, while mothers and fathers and anyone were stranded throughout the u.s., he orchestrated the private and comforable escort of all Bin LAdens out of the U.S. He allowed the pull out of Afganistan just when Osama was cornered and began a war in Iraq without U.N. approval, a war that most any idiot would know there is no solution to as Sunnis and Shiites will never get along and just as BRitain could not bring peace there, nor could anyone but a dictatorship. He and the administration led americans to belive that Saddam H. was responsible for 9/11. First president in U.S. history to have the United Nations remove the U.S. from the human rights commission. First president in U.S. history to have the United Nations remove the U.S. from the elections monitoring board. Spent the surplus and bankrupted the treasury. Shattered record for biggest annual deficit in history. First president in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. First year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by any president in U.S. history. First president in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. First year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by any president in U.S. history. First president in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. First year in office set the all-time record for most days on vacation by any president in U.S. history. Set the all-time record for biggest annual budget spending increases, more than any president in U.S. history. Set all-time record for number of administration appointees who violated U.S. law by not selling huge investments in corporations bidding for government contracts.
    There is more…should I continue? Let the facts speak for themselves. George Bush did not work….

  24. Brian Haskins says:

    What DID George W. Bush do wrong? Are you kidding me? Within days of 9/11/01 and the terrorist attacks George W. Bush addressed the nation and made it clear that America would “find and punish those terrorists responsible for the terrorist attacks.” It is a well known fact that Osama Bin Laden was directly behind these attacks, HE funded them and HE supported them…HIS money trained the terrorists.
    Bush had 7 YEARS TO GO AFTER BIN LADEN AND CAPTURE HIM. BUSH WAFFLED.
    Bush failed to secure the terrorist known as Osama Bin Laden. Why?? Because instead of heading to Afghanistan, the last known location of Bin Laden, and focusing on capturing Bin Laden, Bush WAFFLED and America went to Iraq because of some WMD that didn’t exist. Sure, Saddam Hussein was toppled, but all that happened in Iraq is NOT as important as capturing Osama Bin Laden. Now the Taliban can rebuild under the leadership of Bin Laden and most likely KILL MORE INNOCENT AMERICANS. What did George W. Bush do wrong. ARE YOU KIDDING?

    Obama will save America! F–k the brain dead conservatives! Obama is a realist, he’s for a modern America. Thankfully Obama’s an atheist! It’s about time we’ve got a president with brains in his head. 200+ years and presidents with no brains! Obama is a breath of fresh air, he will, give him time to sew up Bush’s errors, and America will be the healthiest it’s ever been; yes it will, just know it. Imagine America with NO MORE RELIGION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God is finally DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you OBAMA! Science will take over where churches have f–ked too many VERY stupid conservatives who believe in spaghetti moon monsters keeping tabs on them! ATHEIST UNITE! HIP, HIP HORRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (edited for general viewing)

    First Bush was not elected the courts gave him the White House.
    So instead of elected he was selected by the court.
    From there is was all down hill and look where we ended up.

  28. Janet says:

    Wouldn’t it just be easier to list the things he did right? We wouldn’t have to write as much; there are NONE! As second Bush was inaugurated as president everything our past presidents have worked hard to maintain was destroyed. He left us with nothing but a broken America; physically and emotionally. All those lives lost are something we’re never going to get back; he can’t replace them! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE look up the footage of 9/11 and then tell yourselves that Bush was a good president, the terrorists weren’t against us, they were against Bush; he represented our country and just look at what happened, look at the way the world thought of us! . . .All those lives! All those innocent people!

  33. Andrew Yu-Jen Wang says:

    Speaking of George W. Bush:

    George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    Bush has a lot to worry about.

    Speaking of George W. Bush:

    George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    Bush has a lot to worry about.

    Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time.

    In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

  39. skwguitar says:

    Go figure it takes a libertarian to tell these people what bush actually did wrong about the economy. I know the contest is over but… I just had to say it.

    He abandoned the time-honored conservative belief of small government, instead opting for a neo-conservative approach of large spending. Deregulation played its role, no doubt, but not before Bush allowed the Federal Reserve (who technically have no regulation anyways) to artificially lower interest rates, causing the housing bubble to rise. To Bush’s credit he tried to help out home-owners… but he didn’t try all that hard. And we ended up with a whole slew of catastrophic effects that lead us to where we are now economically. The other thing Bush did when the crap hit the fan right before he left office was… well, nothing. There’s no doubt in my mind Bush had nothing to do with that T.A.R.P. bailout he just approved it after Bernanke and Hank Paulsen told him to do it. But his inaction allowed us to get where we are. Overall, I think that’s my main beef with Bush. He’s not a very good leader… often times he had that deer in the headlights look when something happened that required his leadership.

  41. Politicus says:

    Lets add up the very dubious “achievements” of the last eight years.

    First: The stolen election of 2000, which started it all.

    Second: The attacks of September 11, 2001.

    Third: The approval of the Patriot Act and its effects on our democratic system, including the creation of the all-encompassing Department of Homeland Security, illegal wiretapping and domestic spying, the firing of U.S. Attorneys, Dick Cheney’s Energy Task Force, creation of a police state and an atmosphere of overall paranoia and so forth, and so on.

    Fourth: The push towards the invasion of Iraq, along with totally untrue “justifications”, such as the presence of weapons of mass destruction, al-Qaida being centered in Iraq and the “urgent” need to depose Saddam, etc, etc.

    Fifth: The inept and I mean INEPT attempts at nation building, which of course – besides the actual conquest of Iraq – have caused the longest-lasting war in U.S. history and have cost the lives of approximately one million men, women and children and over 4,000 American soldiers, with tens of thousands of young men and women being crippled for life.

    Sixth: The total monetary cost of this artificially created conflict is estimated to be in the trillions of dollars and counting. Making certain specific, but often not even specified corporations very, very rich in the process – with U.S. taxpayer’s money, of course.

    Seventh: Causing the United States to slide from a position of a beacon of freedom to most of the world, to a universally despised entity, which allows and in fact employs torture, extraordinary rendition, secret prisons and all kinds of nasty methods, formerly the domain of the most unsavory of regimes.

    Eight: The deregulation of all kinds of industries, including the airlines and of course, the financial (read: debt repackaging mills) sector.

    Ninth: The creation of the largest national debt and government deficit in the history of the known world. As a matter of fact, the debt clock on Wall Street – which has been switched off during the Clinton administration, because it wasn’t needed – was turned off again, this time, because they run out of digits….Yes, folks. Our national debt now totals some $56 trillion. That’s about $480,000 for every household in the U.S. Isn’t it amazing that we had a surplus under the philanderer Clinton and a totally crippling debt under the teetotaler Bush?

    Tenth: Becoming an economic cripple, with foreign creditors holding huge chunks of whatever real wealth remains in the U.S.

    Eleventh: Not producing very much of anything any longer, allowing other countries to take the technological lead in many areas, allowing our infrastructure to crumble (besides the anti-terrorist barriers in front of government buildings), having an educational system that continues to produce illiterate adults, who often have no idea what lies beyond the borders of their counties and spend an incredible amount of time watching the moronic offerings of the television industry. And lets not forget the government’s peerless performance during and after Hurricane Katrina.

    Twelfth: And this is the crowning, but not surprising touch of the last eight years: The seeming collapse of the debt repackaging mills, which George W. Bush had the gall to call “our financial system” and of course, another super urgent call to bail it out at a cost of another $700 billion, to a trillion dollars of taxpayer’s money. This, after bailing out Bear Stearns, Fannie May, Freddie Mack, AIG and others.

    I will leave the 13th point out of this discussion, as we all fervently hope that it won’t be needed and that point number 12 is the last serious point of damage that the present occupant of the White House and his corporate masters will cause to all of us.

    In closing, allow me to congratulate all of those who have re-elected Bush in 2004!

    He didn’t get it. When Democrats cheat on their taxes, it’s just an honest mistake. When Barney and Chris fought regulation on Fannie and Freddie, it was just their doing the peoples’ business. When Obama says he’s not going to allow lobbiests to run his administration and then grants exemptions to one and all, it was just necessary. George Bush, he didn’t get it – because he was more concerned with doing right by the people then doing right for his party or himself.

    WHAT REALLY CAUSED THE WAR ON IRAQ, AND WHY ARE WE THERE? WHO CAME UP WITH THE IDEA, AND WHEN?

    The first casualty of war is truth.

    After 9/11 and Afghanistan, Bush told us we needed to attack Iraq because they were about to attack us with a variety of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), including nuclear bombs. Then he said Iraq helped al Qaeda in the 9/11 attack. Then he said Iraq was harboring terrorists, and needed to be attacked as part of the war on terrorism. On the day we actually attacked Iraq, there was no verified evidence in hand that any of these things were true.

    He later cited many other problems in Iraq that are also the same problems as in a dozen other countries around the world (e.g. brutal leaders or no democracy), but which countries we do not attack.

    But, there was ample proof before the attack that Iraq had no WMD since 1991 (corroborated evidence from 33 different sources, including Iraq’s Foreign Minister and Chief of Intelligence), no Iraq connection to 9/11, and no Iraq terrorists prior to Bush’s attack. All 33 sources told exactly the same story, and they were all later confirmed to be telling the truth.

    There is solid eyewitnessed evidence (see below) that Bush was personally briefed on the true WMD facts before his attack, and in Dec. 2008 Bush admitted in TV interviews that there was “never” any evidence of any Iraq/9/11 connection, nor was there “ever” any evidence that there were any al Qaeda terrorists in Iraq before the attack, and then he commented “(But) so what?” NONE of his stated excuses for attacking Iraq were true — that is the “so what”!

    We also have proof that hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis were killed in Bush’s bombing attack, their country destroyed, and that 4,200 American soldiers are dead. We also have evidence that Bush’s attack killed more Iraqis and Americans then Saddam Hussein was ever accused of killing.

    The big question is what was behind Bush’s attack on Iraq?

    In 2005 six different well known and highly respected authors (and 3 more books in 2008: from 8 different authors in all) independently published books on the results of their extensively researched facts about how we got into the Iraq war. Their quoted eye-witnesses provided documented evidence, in minute detail, that Bush, Cheney, Tenet, and others had manipulated the available intelligence and lied about all of their claims that Iraq was an imminent threat to the US and had WMD that they planned to use against us.

    Their facts (see below) document the neo-conservative’s (neocon’s) 1996 initial plan (Clean Break) to conduct an unprovoked attack on Iraq, including (in 1996!) a phony pretext cover up story for public consumption that Iraq posed a dangerous threat with its (non-existent) WMD, complete with suggested press releases from the President about the phony threat. That same plan included 1) a new policy of preemptive attacks, and 2) getting the US out of the Israeli peace negotiations. When Bush learned of that plan he found he agreed with it; very much so.

    Bush then hired the lead author of that plan, neo-con Richard Perle, as his campaign’s middle-east foreign policy advisor and embraced Perle’s Clean Break plan in 1999. Bush hired the other two neo-con authors (Douglas Feith & David Wurmser) and implemented the first two parts of the Clean Break plan (both in early February, 2001 — 7 months before 9/11), initiated that same coverup pretext propaganda campaign in early 2002, and then attacked Iraq in March, 2003; all with absolutely no verified evidence of any WMDs or imminent threat from them: none; zero..

    All three authors of Clean Break, together with Wolfowitz, were immediately placed into the highest four war policy positions possible within weeks of Bush taking office. Along with Cheney and Rove, this small group of extreme right wing neocons (on the orders of Bush) took control of developing the details of their phoney pretext for unprovoked war as spelled out in their Clean Break plan, and created all the the phony evidence for their war pretext lies that they later fed to the American public (see pages of evidence of those lies below).

    Because of their ideological positions on Iraq, Bush personally picked the ultra neo-conservative superhawks Rumsfeld & Wolfowitz to become respectively the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Perle to become Chairman of the Defense Policy Board (hiring an all-necon staff anxious for battle), Feith was appointed to the highest policy position in the Pentagon, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, Wursmer to become Cheney’s top Middle East advisor, and later Rice as Secretary of State.

    Rice, then National Security Advisor, had earlier chaired and directed the January 30, 2001 National Security Council meeting at which the primary agenda was to focus on Iraq as a target and formally adopt parts of Clean Break. By February 2001, one month after Bush took office and 7 months before 9/11, the Pentagon had been completely taken over by neocons and they began to prepare for their future unprovoked attack on Iraq. Attendees and witnesses to those facts at that Jan. meeting were Colin Powell and Paul O’Neil, then Sec. of State and Sec. of the Treasury respectively.

    All of these Bush hand picked people (except Rice), including Cheney, are on the public record from the 1990s as vigorously advocating an unprovoked attack (a war crime) on Iraq. In the late 1990s Perle, Feith, and Cheney all served together on the board of advisors of the neocon-dominated Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.

    By 2004 the FBI had uncovered substantial evidence that Feith was spying for Israel. But with the neocons in charge of National Security and the Attorney General, Feith was never formally charged. Amazingly “..Feith was fired from a job in the National Security Council early in the Regan years for leaking classified information to Israel” (Bamford, pg. 404).(A Pretext for War, Bamford, pgs. 160-74, 283-331, 317-331, 367-377, 400-423, Hubris, Isikoff & Corn, pgs. 27-65, 208-22, Greatest Story Ever Sold, Rich, pgs. 184-198, 217, and Hoodwinked, Prados, pgs. 185-95, and Project For The New American Century, and Neo-conservative, Google).

    The neocon ideology was driving Bush’s desire to attack Iraq. Cheney later explained that Iraq had the ability to develop WMD and the interest in using them, and that was reason enough to attack them. Of course the same could be said for Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, but we did not attack them.

    Please Note These Crucial Legal Facts:

    What all of the above 2005 authors, the news media, law enforcement, and Congress did not and have never pointed out is the fact that under US criminal law, any knowing lie or creation of a false impression that causes harm to even one single person is by legal definition felony criminal fraud, and that causing the knowing preplanned unprovoked death of even one single innocent person is, by legal definition, premeditated murder.

    If the president of the US 1) willfully and deliberately pre-plans and executes a massive international CRIMINAL FRAUD lying campaign (as a pre-planned false cover story for a pre-planned unprovoked war) that knowingly and falsely states that another country has WMD and is about to use them against us, 2) knows that if he were to attack that country that his attack would kill thousands of innocent women and children and at least hundreds of US military, 3) and then knowingly attacks that innocent country and kills those thousands of innocent people based solely upon his lies, 4) then his pre-planned unprovoked attack becomes his premeditated MURDER of ALL people killed as the result of his criminal fraud war (per the Felony Murder Doctrine).

    BushCrimes.net connects the dots of Bush’s actions described in those books with the specific language of criminal law as applied to his actions against Iraq. That simple comparison clearly proves that Bush et al’s pre-planning of the unprovoked war in 1999, and that plan’s coverup lying campaign, made that lying campaign, the actual attack, and all the killing and destruction a massive horrible premeditated crime.

    Bush’s fraudulent lies that caused acts of harm and death are what makes Iraq a crime; and Bush a criminal! Read the following proofs of those facts:

    One of the more recent authors, the greatly experienced former LA County Deputy DA (prosecuter of Charles Manson) Vincent Bugliosi (The Prosecution Of GW Bush For Murder, pgs. 100-154), cites strong legal evidence that Bush knew full well that Iraq had no WMD before the war, and lied about it to gain approval for the attack.

    Bugliosi explains his legal reasoning in depth, and calls for the charge of first degree murder to be made, investigated, and prosecuted against GW Bush for the murder of the 4,200 Americans killed in Iraq.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Ron Suskind’s new book (The Way Of The World , pgs. 171-96, 369-86) cites hard evidence from former CIA Paris Station Chief Bill Murray that the last Foreign Minister of Iraq, Naji Sabri, (working first for the French then the CIA) told us (pre-attack) that there were not and had not been any Iraqi WMD since 1991. Suskind has hours of tape from his interviews of all of his sources. There are two congressional investigation hearings about to begin on his accusations (Wash. Post, August 23, 2008, pg. 3, Warrick).

    Suskind writes further that, according to the former 30 year career head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Sir Richard Dearlove, one of his agents Michael Shipster said that the last head of Iraqi Intelligence, Tahir J. Habbush (then as a paid CIA asset), before the attack told us the exact same thing as Foreign Minister Sabri: no WMD in Iraq since 1991.

    Bush was immediately and personally briefed on this new no-WMD intelligence by the CIA, “(the intelligence was) Passed instantly, at the very highest levels.” (pg. 184). Habbush was later paid $5 million in hush money by Bush, after being secretly resettled in Jordan by the CIA.

    Knowing that his own life was not on the line if he did attack, but that his Clean Break attack plan was dead if he didn’t, Bush’s immediate reaction to this new hard intelligence was: “F__k it. We’re going in (anyway).”With that comment of complete disregard of the critical relevance of the true facts, Bush signed the death warrant for over 4,200 Americans and ultimately almost 1.5 million innocent Iraqis. Bush buried the Habbush report, and committed murder in the process of ignoring it. Bush later said that he would have attacked Iraq even if they had no WMD.

    Both high level Iraqi officials gave us the same exact information that all 31 other sources told us pre-war. All were equally ignored by Bush, because he had made his plan to attack Iraq back in 1999 and had started to execute that plan his first few days in office.

    Although he told us (ignored by Bush) pre-attack that he had no WMD, Hussein kept relatively quiet about this no-WMD fact because 1) he did not believe we would actually attack him since he knew there was factually no reason to, and 2) he ruled by intimidation and was concerned that the public absense of any WMD might encourage attacks from either his neighbors or his own people.

    If you will recall at the time in late 2002, before the war, Bush et al were touting the many dangers from Iraq in the form of aluminum tubes (standard rocket launcher artillery tubes) used for “nuclear” bombs, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) (non-existent bomb capacity according to US Air Force) that could be launched from ships and bomb the US with biological weapons, Iraq attempts to buy uranium yellocake from Niger (a forgery warned in advance by German intelligence), and all sorts of dire warnings from the convicted bank embezzler Chalabi ($200 million in Jordan), the expatriate from Iraq who was being promoted by all of Bush’s neocons, including Rumsfeld and Cheney, to be the post war head of Iraq, and they paid $millions to Chalabi to produce phony pro war reports.

    One of Chalabi’s con men was the source of the “evidence” of mobile biological labs, which source had been declared a fabricator over two years earlier by the CIA. But Powell had been assured by Tenet that the mobile labs existed. And all this time Judith Miller of the New York Times was writing favorable front page stories about all the intelligence help Chalabi was providing on WMD — propaganda provided straight from the White House!

    According to Bamford (pg 325), the way pro-war propaganda was stage managed was as follows: “First OSP (Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans, Feith in charge) supplies false or exagerated intelligence; then members of WHIG (White House Iraq Group, out of Cheney’s office, chaired by Rove) leak it to friendly reporters, complete with prepackaged vivid imagery; finally, when the story breaks, senior officials point to it as proof and parrot the unnamed quotes they or their colleagues previously supplied.”

    All of these daily publicised claimed threats from Iraq were promoted to the UN by Colin Powell as the reason to attack Iraq. All of those Bush manufactured fictitious threats were proven to be outright lies; swallowed hook, line, and sinker by half of all Americans, virtually all of the uninvestigative, asleep-at-the-switch media, and most of congress and the UN (see below). At the CIA, one high level manager told a staff meeting of about 50 analysts that “if Bush wants to go to war, its your job to give him a reason to do so…” (Pretext For War, Bamford, pgs 318-77).

    Cheney had spent a lot of time at CIA headquarters, desperately walking the hallways of the analysts, pressuring them to find something “Nuclear” about Iraq. They found nothing because there was nothing to find. Because the Niger”yellowcake” forgery required insider knowledge and access, money, and motivation, it fit all the characteristics of a botched CIA operation; most probably ordered by Cheney himself (who else had both adequate authority and resources to carry it out and anything to gain from such an operation?) in a panicked attempt to uncover some backing for their phony pretext for war (Pretext For War, Bamford, pgs. 294-319).

    Interestingly, while Bush co-collaborators in criminal fraud and murder re Iraq — M. Gerson and D. Feith — are now regular opinion editor and contributing columnist respectively (strictly pro-Bush conservative viewpoint) for the Washington Post, the Post has never published one single investigative report or opinion piece about those horrendous world shaking crimes of Bush, with the sole exception of a brief neutral comment about Bugliosi’s testimony to congress about the subject of his book The Prosecution of GW Bush For Murder. The Post seems to have no interest in the true criminal facts being published: only the pro-war side.

    Gerson is infamous for writing the pro-war propaganda talking point phrase “..we don’t want the smoking gun to be a (an Iraqi) mushroom cloud.” Gerson was Bush’s chief speech writer at the time.

    In yet another Suskind revelation, he writes that in late 2002, still before the attack, Tenet returns from a meeting at the White House and tells Rob Richer, a 30 year CIA veteran in a high level CIA position (now retired and a major government intelligence contractor), that they have been ordered (on distinctive cream colored White House stationary) to prepare a fake letter (with a draft attached) on Iraqi official stationary from Habbush to Saddam, backdated to a couple months before 9/11: the CIA ordered by the White House, in writing, to commit a crime!

    The fake letter was to say that the 9/11 ringleader, Mohammed Atta, had trained for his mission in Iraq, together with some vague references to fake past al Qaeda cooperation on Niger yellowcake uranium for Iraq. Habbush was to transcribe the fake letter in his own handwriting, to make it look real. The CIA was then to take the letter to Bagdad and arrange for its release to the media. Richer said “This was creating a deception”; an impeachable offense. The plan worked perfectly. The world press ran with the story and Bush et al (the creators of the fake letter) hailed it as more proof of the need to attack Iraq.

    According to Suskind, John Maguire, a top level CIA veteran who routinely represented the CIA in meetings with Bush and Cheney, and who was aware of the fake letter, had previously been in a large interagency meeting run by Rumsfeld in which Rumsfeld had kicked out the representatives from the CIA and the State Dept. because they did not agree with him about Iraq.

    Maguire later said “Incredible arrogance, in the face of the facts and reality, from start to finish, and even making us create fabrications like the Habbush letter”. Richer said “It’s called lying”. Note: several of Suskind’s sources (now either active CIA or government contractors faced with loss of contracts by Bush if they do not deny the accusations) have since denied their taped interviews, but may soon need to explain under oath the discrepancy between their hours of taped words and their current brief denial of them.

    If even just two of Suskind’s sources tells the truth under oath in a congresional hearing, that will unlock the whole flood of evidence of Bush’s criminality in Iraq. That in turn will expose the intentional and criminal accessory-after-the-fact and obstruction-of-justice behavior of hundreds of the news media, congress, government employees, and law enforcement persons who have been knowingly silent since most of these criminal facts first became public knowledge in mid 2005, hoping that this would all blow over soon.

    After learning the true criminal facts about Bush, key Democratic congressional leaders in the House of Represetatives (Pelosi et al) have caused themselves to become accessories-after-the-fact for deliberately not permitting any criminal testimony about Bush’s crimes (their ground rules for testimony did not allow it) during the July 2008 House Judiciary Hearings on Bush’s abuse of power, and for ignoring hard criminal evidence such as provided by former prosecutor Bugliosi (The Prosecution of GW Bush For Murder) and others such as this site, and deliberately refusing to investigate Bush’s Iraq crimes.

    They all simply lacked the political and financial guts to tell and act upon what they knew to be the criminal truth about Bush. Under the law on accessories-after-the-fact, they are equally as guilty as Bush et al, and subject to the same punishment for felony criminal fraud and murder: whether Bush is eventually pardoned or not. The longer they wait the worse it will be for them, because their names will all come out in the end. This widespread criminal coverup of Bush’s brutal crimes is a national disgrace.

    Deliberately lying about the knowingly false need for the attack on Iraq by the same decision makers who ordered the attack causes that war to be both 1) a war crime (Crime Against Peace) and illegal, and, 2) by the Felony Murder Doctrine, all the resulting deaths to be premeditated murder (see Google Wickipedia for above legal definitions, and both there and below for legal definitions of accessory after the fact and obstruction of justice).

    The harm done was the almost 1.5 million innocent Iraq civilians dead (mostly women and children) and over a million more wounded, the 4,200 Americans killed and 30,000 more tragically wounded and inadequately cared for, plus over 390,000 more Americans pschologically wounded, a nation destroyed, and 2 million Iraqis left without jobs or homes and forced to flee the country.

    During Bush’s initial unprovoked bombing attack tens of thousands of small Iraqi children were torn apart or crushed in their rooms from flying debris, thousands of babies ripped full of holes or crushed to death while they slept or played; all in excruciating pain! Anyone caught outside was ripped apart by sharp edged cluster bomb flechettes raining down indescriminately in residential areas at one per second for 3 straight days and nights.

    Tens of thousands of whole extended families — husbands, wives, children, parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and grandparents — were slaughtered or terminally suffering and dying in collapsing homes: over 400,000 killed all together, and hundreds of thousands more critically wounded with little or no medical help available. Very painfull experiences for them. In addition, civilian workers at the city morgue in Bagdad estimate that another 1 million civilians were murdered in the civil war caused by Bush’s unprovoked attack.

    According to the Felony Murder Doctrine, while Bush “only” intended to knowingly and deliberately kill a few thousand Iraqi civilians and a few hundred Americans (pre-war military estimates of expected war casualties), he is responsible for all deaths related to his war as well: almost 1.5 million Iraqis and 4,200 Americans people murdered by Bush altogether!

    News of all of these tragic casualties was censored by Bush. He ordered these morbid facts to be kept from public view, just like pictures of the returning coffins. These negative facts spoiled their desired positive image and public celebrations of their bombing raids (massacre of innocent civilians) (Lancet: Iraqi Dead May Total 800,000, Intl. Herald Tribune, Oct. 11, 2006).

    Precision bombing was often off by city blocks. And when it was right on, it quite often totally destroyed immediately adjacent residential buildings. At least as many innocent civilians (and possibly twice as many) were indicriminately murdered by Bush in 3 days in Iraq than in Darfur over several years. And the international criminal court just issued an arrest warrent for the President of Sudan for causing the mass murder of several hundred thousand people in Darfur.

    Vincent Bugliosi won 104 out of 105 felony cases, 21 of them for murder with no losses. Bugliosi had previously written the true crime bestseller Helter Skelter (the Manson case), among others. His legal peers say “Bugliosi is as good a prosecutor as there ever was”. “He’s the best”. “The quintessential prosecutor”.

    In Bugliosi’s new book (The Prosecution Of GW Bush For Murder) he says that the US Attorney General and every state Attorney General and local District Attorney has a very strong first degree murder case against Bush et al for the death of all the soldiers from their juristriction who were killed in Iraq (under the law they (and Obama) each have a legal requirement to either prosecute Bush or face personal charges for Obstruction of Justice).

    Military Families With Dead Or Wounded in Iraq, Please Note: Relatives of Soldiers who died in Iraq, or soldiers who were seriously wounded in Iraq; regardless of whatever happens on the criminal side of this issue, you have a strong legal case against Bush et al for civil and punitive damages for your losses. Contact an experienced attorney and see if they will take on a civil class action lawsuit against the very rich Bush et al group (probably worth at least $250M). Contact other military families in your position to tell them the same.

    If you know any military families who have Iraq dead or wounded sons, fathers, or husbands, please pass a link to this site along to them. Money can not return their relatives whole, but it can help ease their pain of loss.

    Also contact your state attorney general and local district attorney and tell them they have a legal obligation to file criminal charges against Bush et al for felony criminal fraud and premeditated murder regarding all the military people in his juristiction that were murdered by Bush in Iraq, or face personal obstruction of justice charges. You can ask them and your new attorney to read this site for the reasons why.

    Only $15!!?? Geesh. We have a trillion dollar deficit and a trillion dollar stimulus package yet to come and all I get is a measly $15??

    OK, Bush was a lousy president because he made all his decisions based on Oil Interests. Every time he had to make a decision, all he thought about was Oil Oil Oil. Cheney probably influenced this. The Iraq War? Oil. The rebuilding of IRAQ (OIL, Halliburton). Drilling to respond to high oil prices instead of reducing usage.

    OIL OIL OIL OIL OIL.
