The Bush "Legacy"

Bush & Cheney's legacy: this picture is worth 3,969 words as of 2/21/08

(this letter to USA Today was in response to an op-ed by Bob Beckel and Cal Thomas on 'HOW WILL BUSH BE JUDGED")

Cal Thomas came within one letter of getting it right in the column “HOW WILL BUSH BE JUDGED” when he wrote “Bush led us into Iraq.” Insert the letter “i” in “led” and his comment becomes accurate. As a parent whose son was sent off to Iraq in 2003 to invade the country, based on fear mongering and outright lies from President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and others in his administration, my greatest regret is that the spineless Democrats haven’t mustered enough votes to impeach both Bush and Cheney for the egregious violations of their oaths to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Labeling him the worst president in history hardly does justice to the man whose incompetence and arrogance has led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqis and four thousand Americans, with over twenty thousand Americans wounded or maimed. Katrina, mine disasters, wrecking the Justice Department, taking Clinton’s hundred sixty billion dollar surplus and turning it into three trillion dollars of deficit spending, trampling on the rights of Americans, torture, illegal detentions, violations of international treaties governing human rights, the decimation of the international goodwill towards America which existed after 9-11-- that is Bush’s legacy, today, tomorrow, and 100 years from now.
