"Islam is Peace."
President George W. Bush, 9/17/2001

The battered wife syndrome is strong with this one.

Also see GWB's non-reaction to the shooting of Justine Damond.

#8 I sued to cringe and shake my head when Mercer attacked him in her columns. I was wrong.

#9 Bush + Soetoro.... When in our history have we had such a back-to-back, 16-year run of incompetent nincompoop presidents as these two?

Even Fillmore and Buchanan served only one term each.

#10 What a useless idiot-- something that began to be apparent when he uttered the words, "Islam is a religion of peace."

The only kind thing I can say about him anymore is that he was probably a better choice for President than Al Gore or John Kerry. Probably.

#11 Even Bill Clinton had more fortitude and clarity of mind than these weasels. What is wrong with our elite society that it produces such cringeworthy little shits as these two (plus the likes of Biden Romney Warren Harris Pelosi Schiff Rubio et al)?

There must be a structural, institutional reason for it. Is it connected to the abolition of the draft in 1973?

#12 I voted for "W" twice. Who else was there to vote for? Al Gore? John Kerry? Not vote? At the time, Deepstater "W" was the lesser of three evils. Not sure about that now. He's part of the hair in the butter.

#13 W. himself said the plan was Bushes and Clintons forever. That's out the window now.

#14 Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is a perceptible difference between marching for a better future and looting a shopping mall.

#15 Well, malls are done, but looting them isn't the way to get to the next stage of the commercial retail story.

#16 Reagan making Bush Sr his VP was where the GOP went wrong. Hopefully their country club nonsense will be rooted out totally and replaced with working class folks.

#17 The era of Bush, Romney and McCain is over. The only question is, will Trump nudge things in the correct direction or not.

#18 The ones we need to watch out for now are Rubio, Thune, Lee and Sasse.

#19 When W ran against Gore I voted for W because I thought it was a no brainer. But by the time he ran against Kerry I'd had enough of him. In the end I voted for Bush because I couldn't stand the sight of Kerry's wife, otherwise I would have voted for a third party candidate. I understand that's a flimsy reason to cast a vote but it was all I had.

#21 Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is a perceptible difference between marching for a better future and looting a shopping mall.

Well said, SteveS. But I think we need to pay more attention to the fine points. Surely Bush knows the difference but he's one of too many people these days who deliberately ignore the fine points because of their ulterior motives.

#22 JohnQC, voting for the lesser of two evils (or the tepid vs the evil) has been the way of the world since Reagan. Is Pence up to the task in 2024? I hope so.

#24 Bush was president for 8 years. Why didn't he do something about it?

#25 Bush allowed that Frank/Dodd real estate abomination to go through for fear of being called racist even though he knew it would cause havoc later. Cowardly move that one.

#26 I should have voted for Goldwater in '64...Viet Nam would be glass and....

#27 crazyhorse, I remember a fellow saying in 1968 "They told me if I voted for Goldwater in 64, there would be half a million men in Viet Nam, and rioting in streets. But I followed my conscience and voted for him anyway. And sure enough, today there are half a million men in Viet Nam, and rioting in the streets."

#29 I was naive enough to think Bush would have us "exit Iraq"...THRU IRAN...once that fantasy wore off, I saw him for the worthless suit in a fancy office that he was. "War on Terror" my ass.

#30 Bush enjoys a coup - asshole

#31 In 2000, I actually wanted Gore to win; not because I was a Dem, but because I had a feeling that the Clinton "holiday from history" would be followed by a major crisis.

I wanted Gore to have to be the one to deal with that mess.

Welp.

In 2004, I voted Bush, because solid poo with some undigested grains inside of it is marginally better than the diarrhea spread that was Kerry.

And here we are.
