    President George W. Bush,, standing side by side with the people who have demonized him for eight years.. He doesn't have to but he is. Standing side by side with the people who would like to try him as a war criminal. Standing side by side with the people who cannot bring themselves to try terrorists as war criminals, Standing side by side with the Perfect People.

    You know what? You're right. If he had said, "Screw you. I'm staying in Dallas. To hell with the Haitians!" he could not possibly be more vilified than he already has. He will likely gain nothing for answering the call.

    "I always believed as a speechwriter that if you could persuade the president to commit himself to certain words, he would feel himself committed to the ideas that underlay those words. And the big shock to me has been that although the president said the words, he just did not absorb the ideas. And that is the root of, maybe, everything."
    David Frum - Speechwriter for George W. Bush

    Once histories are written and we have had years to reflect, it will become obvious that the majority of economic problems we are having right now are not entirely Bush's fault. Actually the majority of fault will fall outside his hands. His wars sped the downward spiral sure, but the damage was done before he saw the interior of the whitehouse residential quarters.

    It must have been tough for him to stand next to his demonizers.

    oh pooh! bush wasn't "vilified". he was called out for the incompetent he was.

    personally, i never thought he was evil. i always said i'm sure he's charming to have a drink with.... as did most people who are left of center.

    but i know that the right likes to do the whole drama queen thing by saying the left was "mean" to him... "mean" to palin...yadda, yadda.

    it's pretty funny, actually.

    but man of grace? come on. lol..

    a skeptic might say....

    bush is merely trying to promote a legacy that will be more kind to him than reality will be?

    I like you, J. I don't wanna fight, but Dub has been vilified by many on the left, and not for being incompetent. "Bush lied, people died"? That's pretty damn vilifying.

    Bush has more "class" in his little finger than Clinton and Obama have in their whole bodies combined. Out of the three, Bush is the better man because he has much better values and in a man of his word.
