    After 5 years of Obama, they STILL can’t get off of the Bush bandwagon.

    I am going to re-post a comment I posted at the end of yesterday’s strip, just before today’s strip became available. I am posting it so those who didn’t read on yesterday’s postings because of the lateness of when I posted it, can read it now.
    An unbalanced poster has made a completely false charge against a true American hero, John Glenn. The charge is that Glenn somehow impeded a Senate Committee investigation of President Clinton and in return was allowed to go on a Space Shuttle mission. There are certain errors in this claim
    1-John Glenn went on the Space Shuttle mission in 1998 when the Republicans had the majority in the US Senate. Even if the Committee voted along party lines, the Republicans could have pursued any investigation they wanted.
    2-1998 was the year of the Lewinsky scandal. The House impeached Clinton in the lame duck session between the November 1998 election and the new Congress taking office in January 1999. By the time the new Senate tried Clinton in 1999, Glenn had already retired from the Senate.
    3-The accuser of Glenn on this site neither specifies the nature of the investigation or the committee that Glenn was on.

    Thank you for a factual and historically accurate comment.
    As much as I studiously avoid taking the Trolls bait, sometimes, like you, I feel compelled to interject the truth and refute their scurrilousness.
    While this is a free forum of ideas, it vexes me that certain contributors on certain sites can be banned for an inappropriate statement, or a slip of the “tongue”, while racist, subversive, ignorant and inflammatory statements, by certain individuals, are allowed on this site.

    And Glenn was likely able to go to space because he’d been there already.

    There was a strong, honest and wise American president named Bush……but only one….

    Considering that George W. Bush is (though probably an alcoholic) a teetotaler, it seems insulting to depict him with a beer.

    When everyone else is making jokes about paying taxes tomorrow, Trudeau chooses to mock the Bush family.

    Because Bush trashed the economy. 20 years may not take care of it. The band will get awfully tired of playing, and the wagon may lose a wheel or two…

    … I’ve always thought of Dub as “the Shrub”. His stay in the White House was “graced” by his posing, mincing, and posturing (how’s that “ranch” in Crawford doing these days… Shrubdy been back? Hmm? Has there been ANY more brush cleared in Texas since his numerous vacations from from his “elected” duties in DC?) clearly underscore my view of his “worth” — to-date, and historical — to this great country. Iraq? Afghanistan? Bin Laden? Shrub’s still clueless, and yet, craving “credit” for other folks’ successes and real efforts following his huge failures.
    The only things I continue to fault GHW for is having cringeworthy and mind-numbingly poor judgement: taste in women (loyalty he HAS, but genes DO matter), his seemingly blind and crippling lack of spine as it comes to family (he SHOULD have barred his distasteful, cowardly and nearly-criminally untalented children from "seeking public office”… anywhere… or any time)… but he caved… to Bar’s vanities and ambitions, didn’t he? And then there’s Iraq, isn’t there? The finishing — and swiftly (much less painfull) blow could and should have delivered on HIS watch… not passed on to his idiot son (and Rove, Rumsfeld, and Cheney) to mangle.
    GHW? Nice brave (in his youth anyway ) man… made a great many very, very poor — USA-damaging — choices.
