Not really! "W" tried his best to destroy America but America will survive because of the people and our history. It will not be easy given that so many are gullible to the likes of the Koch brothers, T-Baggers, Fox Noise, Limbaugh and others who have worked so long to tear down the US government and Constitution. What is it they want to replace our Government with? A Theocracy, a Fascist state led by Laissais Faire Robber Barons with cold hearts, no sense of working together for the betterment of America and Americans? United we stand, divided, like Fox Noise and Limbaugh have tried to do for 20+ years, we fall, but the American ideals/dream will prevail and beat down the tyrants like the Kochs, Roger Ailes, Murdoch, the John Birch Society and followers of Ayn Rand like Paul Ryan. Keep the faith and believe in America and the US Constitution. First, we need to kill the Patriot Act which is anti-US Constitution! Then bring home the troops from foreign lands. Our founders said to not get involved in civil wars overseas, they were right, "W" was totally wrong!

What "two more wars"? We were using drones in Yemen under "W" who also used them and C-130 Gunships in Somolia and threatened to attack Libya. There are no wars, only stupid conflicts that have resulted from the creation of israel and the interjection of US Troops into Saudia Arabia by Bush Daddy. Afghanistan is a bungled followup of Reagan/Bush Daddy's activity in the 1980's and Iraq is another intervention of Reagan with Dictators, helped Saddam fight Iran. Reagan loved dictators and conflicts, almost started another Vietnam in Central America and we are still dealing with his drug cartels created to supply the Contras through Noriega, another dictator Reagan/Bush created. When have we declared War?

Heh, heh, "million"! The cost of VA care for the wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan from the last 8 years of "W"s follies is approx.$10 Billions because of the severity of the injuries to those soldiers and that is a recurring debt that will increase with age and medical costs rising. Not to mention the $500K death benefits paid out to families of the 6,000+ killed and the support needed by the children of such injured and killed soldiers through age 23 if in college. Throw in the hidden costs of the wars that "W" failed to put on the books, at least $200 Billion to $300 Billion for 10 years and ongoing, thats, hmmmmm,$2-$5 Trillion before we get out of Afghanistan/Iraq, oh, wait, we are never getting out, we will always have approx 30K troops in both countries. It would have been so much better to attack terrorists from afar, with drones, bombs and Special Ops attacks, rather than invading and occupying, then bringing in more contractors than troops. We still have about 100K contractors in Iraq to support the troops and protect the dignataries, etc. along with building thousands of buildings, road, power plants, although Iraq still only has 8 hrs per day of electricity and do not forget Bush's Billion Dollar Embassy that has over 3,000 personnel living in the "Green Zone". Bush's follies and stupidity, along with his tax cuts, over $400 Billion per year from the revenue,$600+ Billion in interest payments on the Reagan, Bush Daddy and "W" Deficits and thats a lot of money wasted because of "W" and the Repuglicans, forgot the Wall Street theft via Repuglican deregulation and lack of oversight. As "W" said, "let the businesses regulate themselves, they know what they are doing"! Bush also doubled the size of the Federal government and did not include the wars, his drug program or Homeland Security increases in the budget, left it for Obama to deal with, like he did every debt in his life, left them to daddy or daddy's friends. "W", a real POS!

Oh, the VA cost of "$10+ Billions" is each year, not in total, so, 10 years, over $100 Billions and a lot of suffering and destroyed lives, thanks to "W" wanting to prove he was a "tough guy" not a "Drug Store Cowboy"/punk. He proved he was the later, total Punk!
