We've been graduating uneducated for nearly 20 years now. They are no part of the electorate. These uneducated youth showed up in unprecedented numbers the last two elections. In Obama we got exactly what we should expect from people who cannot be capable of differentiation right from wrong because they can hardly read.

George Bush was the greatest president in my lifetime. The liberal press bashed him and continues to bash him in ways I find laughable but the uneducated find plausible. Unfortunately that latter group votes as well.

with the exception of MIT, where they are teaching kids creative ways to utilize pressure cookers, your basically spot on when it comes to education. Instead of reading and writing, Unions (not teachers) are coming up with great homework assignments like 'Name 10 ways Sarah Palin will destroy the country','How to scream Racism when you can't get what you want'' How you can live on free healthcare and entitlements' and of course my favorite...'For extra credit, watch 60 hours of MSNBC a week'

It was so easy for this guy to get elected and reelected. He used the single oldest trick in the political book, demagoguery. He is, in fact, the greatest demagogue I have ever personally witnessed.(For all those that voted for him please google the word demagogue as I am sure the majority of you do not know the word due to your lack of education. Your liberal elite know it but my posts are not intended for those that are lost beyond redemption).

An Ode to Bush

Now that a bipartisan blue-ribbon panel has reached the conclusion that President George W. Bush and his top advisers bear “ultimate responsibility” for authorizing torture in violation of domestic and international law, the question becomes what should the American people and their government do.

The logical answer would seem to be: prosecute Bush and his cronies (or turn them over to an international tribunal if the U.S. legal system can’t do the job). After all, everyone, including President Barack Obama and possibly even Bush himself, would agree with the principle that “no man is above the law.”

At least that is what they profess in public, but they then apply this principle selectively, proving that they don’t really mean it at all. The real-world standard seems to be: you are above the law if you have the political or economic clout to make prosecution difficult or painful. Then, more flexible rules apply.

For instance, we’re told that Pvt. Bradley Manning may have had good intentions in exposing U.S. government wrongdoing to WikiLeaks, but he still must be punished for taking the law into his own hands. The only question seems to be whether he should be imprisoned for 20 years or life.

Even the U.S. soldiers at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison who imitated the abusive techniques that Bush and his advisers authorized in more limited situations had to face justice. Eleven were convicted at court martial, and two enlisted personnel – Charles Graner and Lynndie England – were sentenced to ten and three years in prison, respectively. A few higher-level officers had their military careers derailed.

But the buck pretty much stopped there. It surely didn’t extend up to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, White House counsel Alberto Gonzales, Vice President Dick Cheney and President Bush. They simply engaged in a game of circular excuse-making, claiming that they had relied on Justice Department legal guidance and thus their own criminal actions really weren’t criminal at all.

Yet, along with its judgments about torture, the 577-page report from the Constitution Project obliterated that line of defense by detailing how the Bush administration’s lawyers offered up “acrobatic” legal opinions to justify the brutal interrogations, which included waterboarding, sleep deprivation, stress position, forced nudity and other acts constituting torture.

Lawyers from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, particularly John Yoo and Jay Bybee, collaborated closely with senior administration officials in choreographing these legal gymnastics. Then, when other government lawyers later challenged the Yoo-Bybee rationalizations, those lawyers faced career reprisals from the White House. They were essentially forced out of government, the report found.

In other words, Bush’s team had arranged its own legal opinions that empowered the President do whatever he wanted. Indeed, the Yoo-Bybee legal opinions gave the President carte blanche by citing his supposed “plenary powers,” meaning that he could do literally anything he wished during “wartime,” even a war as nebulously defined as the “war on terror.”

"Former President George W. Bush is finally finding the love."

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/...

"Recent poll numbers put the previously unpopular president — his second term poll numbers were the lowest for any second term president since World War II, ABC reported — back in the golden graces of the public.... Now, 47 percent of ABC News/Washington Post survey participants say they approve of Mr. Bush’s job performance during his entire eight years in the White House. Fifty percent still say they disapprove — but that’s still an improvement."

An ode to Bush

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade thinks he's found the reason someone set off bombs at the Boston Marathon: President Obama's so-called policy of "disengaging from the Middle East."

Even though the two brothers who planted the bombs were from Russia, and not the middle east. It's ridiculous and insane, and more proof Fox News anchors are biased and stupid.

Kilmeade linked the alleged actions of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar to President Obama's foreign policy during his April 19 radio program.

Kilmeade said this: "We had a guy in yesterday that worked with Richard Holbrooke and Hillary Clinton and he's so disappointed that we're disengaging from the Middle East. But you talk to these radicals in the Middle East and they say,'America, don't get involved, leave us alone.' So like it or not, this president has left them alone. And now the IEDs are blowing up in our streets."

NBC News reported that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was born in Kyrgyzstan and became a naturalized American citizen on Sept. 11, 2012, while his late older brother, Tamerlan, killed during a recent firefight with law enforcement, was born in Russia. They came to the United States in 2002 with their family, which is of Chechen origin.

And btw, Kilmeade is hardly an authority on foreign policy or national security issues. He has lied to his audience about the Iraq war intelligence, he claimed (repeatedly) that "all terrorists are Muslims," and once remarked that Sen. John McCain "should not be allowed to talk about torture" because "he was tortured."

Notice that O'Reilly totally ignored it, but when someone at CNN and MSNBC blamed Bush and his policies for the 9-11 terrorist attacks, O'Reillly went crazy and slammed them for years.

They may have been from Russia, but were radical Islamists. Also, CNN, MSNBC, and you need to go back and study history. The 9/11 attacks were planned long before Bush became President. In fact, Islamic Jihadists have a long history of terrorist attacks against the West, including the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of the Khobar Towers barracks in Saudi Arabia, among others, many of which occurred during the Clinton Adminstration. Yet as usual you find a way to blame everything on Bush, while Obama is well into his second term, and is responsible for nothing according to his apologists.
