    Please tell me we aren’t going to have another round of GW the war criminal and all the Bush hater rhetoric. Haven’t we heard it enough? Don’t we have enough current problems to leave the past in the past?

    Sounds like you just fired the first shot.

    Hey yeah, thanks for reminding us about the cause of your problems. Just be sure not to make the same mistakes again.

    Sociopathic rationalization?

    You’re right, Mickey…you can’t edit the past or live in it. But if you forget it, you are likely to repeat it.

    I kind of like W’s paintings the same way I like John Gacy’s.

    Thanks, King.
    The Mechanic is right; please provide the source of the letter, if possible. Perhaps someone like Matt Damon, Richard Gere, or someone of equal fame and political activism could then read it and allow the video to go viral. Whoever does so, of course, will be the next target of O’Reilly and Fox News, so it might as well be someone they already hate.

    “but before the “conservatives” eviscerate you, can you please provide some provenance for this letter?”

    Looks like it originated here:

    truthdig

    Also here: Snopes

    Here, and elsewhere: International Business Times

    “another round of GW the war criminal and all the Bush hater rhetoric. Haven’t we heard it enough?”

    Actually, you’re correct in one sense – we really ought to be blaming the true architects, ‘Dick’ Cheney and Rummy. Bush was really just a patsy.

    But as far as “haven’t we heard enough”: those of us who, ten years ago, were opposed to the war, were called “unpatriotic”, “deluded” and even “deranged”. For making predictions about the ultimate costs and casualties – which were actually low, it turns out.

    Until the damage inflicted by this war is healed, we will of necessity need to remember it.

    “Haven’t we heard it enough?”

    Speaking for myself, I think if ‘Dick’ Cheney, Rummy and W Bush came out and said simply: “We did what we thought should be done, but in so many things having to do with the war – we were in error. We made mistakes. Our hearts are deeply hurt by the suffering.”

    That would go a long way towards “leaving the past in the past”.

    Must really torture you to others pulling your schtick and doing it to you.

    Just release the criminals to the world courts so they can do penance for their crimes. Perhaps that would help put it behind us.

    Every day I check Snopes What’s New and the letter is the latest story listed.
