David Corn has a book out called "The Lies of George W. Bush"
1. "It’s time to restore honor and dignity to the White House." Bush said that many a time during the 2000 presidential campaign, and in at least one ad pledged to "return honor and integrity" to the Oval Office.
LOL. I guess if you call destroying our economy, starting a war with lies about weapons of mass destruction that has killed thousands of our G.I.s, thumbing your nose at the middle class-United Nations-the Geneva Conventiion torture policies-----Yeah, I guess that's what GOP CONS call "honor". Now Bush said he wishes his name wasn't associated with "The BUSH tax cuts". Why is that CONS? If you are all so proud and certain of how good they were for the country, take OWNERSHIP. Just because those tax cuts overwhelmingly benefitted the wealthy and ultimately ruined middle class jobs and our economy doesn't mean they were bad does it? In that alternate universe you GOP CONS live in, Bush was "Honorable" and the "Bush Tax Cuts" stimulated the economy and created jobs right? NOT. The only thing that irritated my about President Obama is that Bush and Cheney were put on trial for lying to the American people to start a war in which their buds got no bid contracts and they got wealthy because our kids died.
Look up Halabja and Anfal and then tell me that Iraq didn't have WMD. Tens of thousands killed and injured. Or ask the Iranian's if Hussein had any hesitation of using WMD on its citizens. There are a few more examples if you'd like but the facts really screw up your premise.
So we know that Iraq had WMD because he used them so what happened? He either used all of them, destroyed them or hid them somewhere. Regardless, not a lie.
And as I wrote earlier in a note, we now have a similar issue brewing with Iran who claims that their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Our intel is far from clear. If we strike it will likely be before he actually manufactures a weapon so that measure of doubt will always be there and all kinds of examples will undoubtedly emerge to show it was peaceful - would that make Obama a lier? Not in my mind since he'll be making a judgement call with the best information that he has at that time.
GW finally apologized on Mar. 19, 2015 - 10th anniversaRy of this misbegotton war! He' was not invited to his GOP's 2012 convention. Hr lives a good life in ypscale part of Dallas - hiding. He and Cheney should have been tried at the Hague for war crimes and torture. Cheny has no conscience. 5 tiimes defected Viet Nam War who sent thousdands of our kids to death in that horrible ill conceived war which killed and horribly woundedt least 200,000 Iriqui civilians - women and children included. Much for which to answer in the next life. Would Jesus have done this? Always a good test when deciding what to do.. Would Jesus take care of the sick and poor? Greed is not the answer.
