    My votes shun any candidate even remotely associated with this man.

    Cheney paints what he sees.

    Y’know, I’ve seen a shift in views of Bush, even on this list, that apparently think he was merely a pawn in the hands of Cheney. Perhaps it is his now-revealed artistic side.
    I’m not willing to cut him that much slack. He emphasized that he was “the Decider;” if he relied on aging, misinformed neocons, that, too, was his decision.

    Hello Motivemagus,
    I admit to being one of those who consider Mr. Bush to have been manipulated. However, considering the quality of those who spoke to him against invading Iraq, you are right to hold “the Decider” responsible.
    Has Mr. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, or even Ms. Rice traveled to Europe in the last five years?
    There are rumors of national law enforcement that would like to have words with some of them.
    Fortunately for the administration that wasted lives, tax dollars, and int’l good will in the name of oil, profiteering, and hubris, there are plenty of ‘patriots’ who feel the nearly 2 trillion dollars lost (counting ongoing expenses and care of those wounded in combat) was totally worth it.
    Those who fail to learn from history, repeat it, then justify.
    You however, Magus, are correct. Good comment.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    If Mr. Bush had not gone to war with Iraq, our national debt would be 1/3 of what it is currently; 4,000 Americans would be alive and tens of thousands would not be missing limbs, hearing, eyesight, or suffering from various mental conditions. Maybe their children would have had more parental influence and love in their lives.
    ^.
    Several veterans and intelligence personnel have written about how close they were to catching Bin Laden in 2004 before resources were pulled to Iraq. Perhaps the war and costs of war would have been over before Obama was elected and a Republican party that had won really won a war and captured the man who plotted 9/11 could have been standing beside the man he wanted to follow him into the presidency and you wouldn’t have had to endure the ‘stench’ of the Dems
    ^
    Then there’s the humans many Americans seem to not care about. The over two hundred thousand citizens of Iraq, Afghanistan, & Pakistan killed in the conflict between coalition and ‘enemy’ forces. Our enemies would not have learned how to destroy M1 Abrams tanks. We wouldn’t have lost all of the support, goodwill, and credibility we had right after 9/11.
    ^
    Perhaps Mr. Obama would not be taxing so much, if Mr. Bush’s administration had invested the American people into the war the way we were in WW1, WW2, and Korea. Higher gas and food taxes to help pay for wars which went unbudgeted every year until Obama took office. Cheney told us deficits didn’t matter.
    ^
    Maybe…just maybe… if republicans AND democrats had been more suspicious of the banking industries high risk financial products and more thoughtful about our debt, maybe…just maybe… Bush could have left office with a surplus instead of leaving a nation in the worst financial situation since the depression.
    ^
    The fresh air to which you refer never existed, and it’s smell lingers to this day. Pelosi and Reid are as bad as Boehner and McConnall. None of them are doing all they can to clear the air.
    Respectfully,

    “Has Mr. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, or even Ms. Rice traveled to Europe in the last five years?
    There are rumors of national law enforcement that would like to have words with some of them.”

    Unless the International Criminal Court has a secret list (ala our current and some of our past Presidents), as of a couple of days ago, there are no proceedings pending or investigations instituted against any U. S. citizens or organizations. If the people you mentioned are in fear of going to Europe for legal reasons, those reasons don’t seem to be apparent.

    On a side note, the government of Kuala Lumpur did establish an independent commission to try Bush et.al , in absentia, for war crimes and found them guilty. This commission has no international recognition. The hope of the commission was to prod the International Criminal Court into taking action against Bush and his fellow defendants.

    Well, Darth Cheney controlled the shrub from 2000-2008, so why not keep right on doing it?

    @mikefive

    You are right, as usual, Mike. Poltical figures in western nations of Europe have talked about trying Bush and Cheney, but there has been NO move to do so of which I’ve heard. Amused to hear about Kuala Lumpur. Thank you for that grin.
    Grinningly,

    Former U.S. President George W. Bush has cancelled a visit to Switzerland over fears he could have been arrested on torture charges.
    Mr Bush was due to be the keynote speaker at a Jewish charity gala in Geneva on February 12.
    But pressure has been building on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters the country.
    Criminal complaints against Mr Bush alleging torture have been lodged in Geneva, court officials said.
    Human rights groups said they had intended to submit a 2,500-page case against him in the Swiss city tomorrow for alleged mistreatment of suspected militants at Guantanamo Bay.

    No, no, no. It’s OBAMA’S fault. The black guy did it all. Not GOP.

    “Will you people EVER get tired of picking on poor President Bush? We were doing a lot better financially when he was in office!”

    If I didn’t know better, I would think you were being sarcastic.

    To answer the first question, personally, yes, I am tired of picking on him. Too bad he deserves everything he gets and more.

    To answer the next statement, please let me remind you that we were spending $2 billion per week for our wars, at the same time enjoying tax breaks out the wazoo. No one ever before has lowered taxes while fighting a war, and there’s a darned good reason why. As you are quick to point out with our current administration, you can’t keep spending more than you make. When you intentionally reduce your income while spending like a drunken sailor, there will be negative consequences.

    History is history. The fact he is no longer in the White House does not make him any less responsible for the damage his administration did, nor does it lessen the damage.

    Remember that the economy bottomed out in September, 2008, four months before Obama took the oath of office. As we were spending about a trillion dollars (that we know of) to bail out the investment banks that helped to put us there, and as we were hemorrhaging a quarter million jobs per month, Dubya did……nothing. He “didn’t want to interfere with” the next president’s plan, so for four months we watched helplessly as the country continued its economic tailspin.

    Did you forget when Bear-Stearns, Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual collapsed?
    Did you for get when the subprime mortgage crisis hit this country like a freight train?
    Did you forget when GM, Chrysler, and yes, even Ford asked for government help? Did you forget when the original TARP was passed?
