On the left’s opinion that George W. Bush is an idiot, I agree with Leigh Scott who writes at Big Hollywood:
Barbara Mandrell’s classic song comes to mind, “If loving you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.” If Keith Olbermann, Janet Napolitano, Paul Krugman, Joe Biden and Chris Matthews are “smart” and George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan are idiots….well count me in as a mouth-breathing imbecile.
I miss having my fellow simpleton in the Oval Office. The country felt safer. Morale was higher. And there wasn’t this sinking feeling that freedom was being sold out to the interests of unions, community organizers, and a network of government parasites.
W. wasn’t perfect. Far from it. He played good offense on national security but lousy defense on spending. He failed to stop the rising tide of big government and runaway spending.
The sad part is, that every negative policy of the Bush administration that I can think of has been continued or amped up under the Obama regime.
Of course, nobody seems to notice this. Except us knuckleheads.
So, enjoy your retirement W. We miss you. I have a sinking suspicion that your legacy of ignorance and stupidity will see a resurgence in 2012. That’s the next chance for the unwashed masses to put a dunce in the White House.
I can’t wait.
Update: Take a look at this article by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, who writes that American betrayed George W. Bush. Here’s a portion:
It’s almost hard to believe but Wednesday, January 20 marks exactly one year since President Bush left the White House.
During his last public ceremony as commander in chief, he was booed by thousands of Americans who simutaneously cheered for Barack Obama as he was sworn into office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Except for a June 17 speech in Erie, Pennsylvania in which Bush defended his policies and criticized Obama’s, the former president has been remarkably silent about his successor. He has not fired back at Obama despite the new administration inappropriately blaming Bush for all of their failures.
Please read the entire piece.
By the way, if you’re wondering who Jeffrey Scott Shapiro is, you may be surprised to learn that he worked for John F. Kerry during the 2004 presidential election:
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro is a journalist and lawyer who served on Senator John F. Kerry’s legal team during the 2004 election. He is currently organizing a nationwide effort called “Honor Freedom” to correct the historical record about President Bush and the Bush foreign policy doctrine, which can be reached at www.honorfreedom.com and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=41317929699&ref=ts or Twitter at http://twitter.com/honorfreedom.
