Ran into this the other day, apparently written by an economist who used to work with Bush Jr. It contradicts (I’m tempted to say busts but it’s one guy’s word) very comprehensively the image of Bush as stupid. The new George W. Bush Presidential Center is being dedicated this week. This seems like a good time to bust a… Continue reading George W. Bush is smarter than you (and fitter)
No Right Turn reports that George Bush has been found guilty of war crimes. Since their invasion of Iraq in 2003, former US President George W Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair have been dogged by allegations of war crimes. Sadly, the United Nations and the International Criminal Court have refused to act on complaints,… Continue reading Bush Guilty, yet not.
A very interesting article about Bush, and his MBA. First, the fact that Bush actually had to work to get his degree. The comparatively small amount of attention paid by the political press to the President’s Harvard MBA partially reflects a generalized ignorance of, and hostility toward, the degree itself. More importantly, acknowledging that he… Continue reading Bush’s MBA
On Katrina, Bush said he didn’t land Air Force One to view the submerged New Orleans up close because he was worried about taking resources away from rescue efforts. Fact is, had he landed that’s the criticism that he would have faced. It was a dammed if you do, dammed if you don’t situation, and… Continue reading Quote of the Day
After the Bush years, many of us woldn’t have ever though the left would try to claim the moral high ground again. But they have. So New Zeal has a no-holds-barred reminder of the ugly obscenity-filled hate speech that was was oh-so-common through those years. But let’s be clear. There is no doubt that both… Continue reading Ah, the good old days of Bush
A nice, direct message from the Republican Party. Via No Minister.
…and the Telegraph chooses to swim against the current. Much of the condemnation of his policies though is driven by a venomous hatred of Bush’s personality and leadership style, rather than an objective assessment of his achievements. Ten or twenty years from now, historians will view Bush’s actions on the world stage in a more… Continue reading One Year Since Bush Left…
Remember this? Funny how that got so much airplay. Yet Obama has already played more Golf as president than Bush did in his entire 8 years. Just shows you how perceptions can differ so much from reality, and how those perceptions can change reality, since Bush actually gave up golf lest the media report that… Continue reading Obama already played more Golf than Bush
Well, for those that follow the comments round here I’ve had a difference of opinion with someone. He thinks that it’s absurd to suggest that Bush was treated far worse than Obama, I think the reverse is absurd. So I did some google searches. “Kill Bush” gives 37,300,000 results. “Kill Obama” gives 56,300,000 results. So… Continue reading Obama v Bush – Who to kill?
Ah, memories of the past. It seems like just yesterday that, instead of the fringe right obsessing over Obama’s birth certificate, we had the fringe (well, they didn’t seem to think so) left obsessing over Cheney’s vice-like grip over Bush. All sorts of fantasies were concocted over this one, but it seems that it wasn’t… Continue reading That’s what was talked about before we had Obama’s birth certificate
