Here’s Buzz Flash‘s answer:
Where do such inconsequential people get the nerve to criticize their betters when they have so little to offer in terms of either foreign or domestic policy or intellect?
There was a time when I thought there could never be a more reprehensible, more ignorant presidential candidate and eventual president than George W. Bush, but I was wrong – - a man who served two terms still mispronouncing the word nuclear – - a person so insensate, as to find humor in a search for weapons of mass destruction under tables, and behind lecterns at a press correspondents’ dinner. Who could have imagined that the leader of the free world could be so embarrassingly idiotic as to sign on for an unnecessary war financed by tax cuts that would leave the country in a mountain of debt?
The awful truth is, of course, that he was motivated by personal demons and incomplete intelligence that drove him to make incredibly bad foreign-policy decisions, compounded by less than well-founded economic considerations. The worst part of his malfeasance remains, however, the continuing insistence on his part and that of his ne’er-do-well vice president, that their administration was right to undertake an endless war without figuring out where or when it would end and to undermine our country’s good name by using torture and calling it enhanced interrogation techniques. In a reference that often comes to mind in terms of what went on during the Bush years, there are always those who insist when a wolf is at the door that it is just a dog.
We have passed through a gruesome period of our history that will leave a multitude of unresolved issues behind, but at least for the moment the Iraq war itself is no longer our responsibility. Of course President Obama is being criticized by the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham and others who say we should stay in Iraq for “as long as it takes” whatever that means to them,- – ten more years, twenty, ’til the end of time? None of the war hawks ever suggest a way to pay for our foreign involvements even as they rant repeatedly about our “debt crisis.”
