"REQUIRED Reading"! By whom? Reperv's who want a Big Brother state to make me read a puff piece on Bush?

What did it say about torture and the two dozen prisoners who died from torture by his order?

What did it say about Katrina? About his lying, dishonest and forgery-abetted war on Iraq? Any sympathy for dead Iraqi's or are they too 'brown' to matter?

How many fingers am I holding up?

This article was excellent. And it came from a Washington Post columnist?? Whoa! There is DECENCY left in some corners of the left-wing media that runs this country!

I agree with the Angry Republican: This should be required reading for all liberal Bush haters. Heck, they may even want to throw it in the stack of papers Obama is going to be reading over the next few weeks. He might want to know that Bush actually did some amazing things despite what the media has told our country.

Like him or not, we had W. exactly when we needed him.

The Islamic nut balls were attacking America and her interests around the world for the past 30 years.

And finally a patriot like W stood up to them.

Only the liberal cry babies care if a few hell bent terrorist get water dumped on them.

Now we have a free country of Irag, smack dab in the middle east.

It is a beacon of hope for all muslims that they can be free and with democracy and capitalism they will have much better lives.

History will say that with low approval ratings George W. Bush led our nation in a time of great crisis and squashed the Islamic radical uprising that could have been the biggest threat since Nazi Germany.

Michael Gerson the author of this opinion article was the chief speechwriter from 2001 until June 2006 for Dear Leader and also member of the White House Iraq Group. Of course he is going to write a puff piece on Dear Leader for he was part of the illegal war this administration got us into that hopefully will be held responsible for it.

From a WaPo reader:

On the Nov. 7 op-ed page, Charles Krauthammer excused the Republicans of any responsibility for losing the election, Michael Gerson praised President Bush's decency, and John Boehner said that Tuesday's election was not a rejection of the GOP. Clearly they (and others who shrank their party to a Southern and rural minority) don't get that we'll no longer fall in line when they wave the bloody flag of national security.

Though Republicans love to cry class warfare every time the Democrats try to improve the lot of anything or anyone but a corporation, the past eight years have been a class war that was won by Mr. Bush's "haves and have mores."

The American people repudiated that on Nov. 4.

HAHA.

Let the Image Rehabilitation Process begin.

Wankers.

You'll cry a different tune (or just remain silent) when Americans are dying all around you Ida. You...like most liberals don't think we will hear from the terrorists again..."peace in our time".

The America I grew up in would rather see our blood in the streets and our Constitution 'protected'. How many have given their lives for that document?
Your coward of a president shredded our Constitution out of his abject fear of the terrorists. That's how he'll be remembered.

Shandu...still spreading the liberal lies. If you're worried about the constitution, you better keep a close eye on the next four years. You can join the fight to protect personal property rights and free speech...among others.

When GW Bush was elected in 2001, incidentally by vote of the Supreme Court, he immediately proclaimed a "mandate" from the people for sweeping change. Along with his handler, Karl Rove (he who thought he had established a Republican majority for multiple generations), and his pick for VP, Dick Cheney he set about repudiating most of the reasons folks voted for him. He turned out not to have any interest in 'reaching across the aisle', was the most partisan of modern presidents, and included Democrats only when absolutely necessary. He personally proved to be intellectually incurious and famously short with opinions that did not adhere to his worldview. He allowed Cheney to set up and operate a 'Shadow' presidency for his first five years and allowed Rumsfield a virtual free hand in grossly mismanaging a war which probably did not have to be fought. Add to these an abject rejection of environmental concerns in the face of overwhelming evidence for global warming, a misguided, and fortunately failed, attempt to privatize Social Security, the Katrina fiasco, the precipitous loss of US prestige overseas and the continued insistence to push, in anyway(s) possible, deregulation and the historians of 10-20-50 years hence will rate him as the worse president of the past 75 years.

Sorry to disappoint you there, Jimbo, but history is written by people who understand history. So therefore, President Bush will get low marks.

He's been a good President during tough times. I hope the next one does half as well.

The Bush Administration is currently working furiously to dismantle the clear air and clean water acts and every other regulation that protects the American people and our land.

Thanks George Bush, FOR NOTHING!!!

Seventy-six percent of those questioned in the poll disapprove of how he is handling his job.

That's an all-time high in CNN polling and in Gallup polling dating back to World War II.

"No other president's disapproval rating has gone higher than 70 percent. Bush has managed to do that three times so far this year," Holland said. "That means that Bush is now more unpopular than Richard Nixon was when he resigned from office during Watergate with a 66 percent disapproval rating
